Good morning, organizing scrappers! This week will be more thinking than doing - we're going to organize your DIES. Which means the most work will be figuring out storage that will work best for you and your space, because once you have that sorted out - putting dies away really is a piece of cake. Check out my blog and let's get started!

Morning! Checking in. Another great compilation, Stacy!

I am lucky - don't have Sizzix or Nestabilities or Quickcutz or Cuttlebug. I'm a simple Cricut gal. I do like the Scrap Caddy thing for those and I HAD done this summer the 2nd link under there that Happy Happy Joy Joy did....But I am really like those Scrap Caddy things....May convert. I only spent about $5 on the other thing....

Hmmmm.....To ponder.....

GREAT news on the pen/pencil front: I save {gasp} old emtpy containers and have them neatly organized in Sterilites under the stairs closet....So, I went to my stash and found 6 oz. Durkee French Fried Onion containers from last Thanksgiving and they are perfect for the PVC type pen thing!!!! Yahoo!!! So, now I am going to cover them with cute paper and DH is going to help me stick them all together and I am set! I just LOVE when something comes together and that "trash" you hoard pays off!

Had a great scrapping weekend and put it all away last night. I LOVE MY ROOM! Happy Monday everyone and thanks again, Stacy. You're the BEES KNEES.

Ah, Penny! Hot tubbed 5 times and visited with my friend, Margarita. It was worth unloading the car!

What is an AE class? I've seen those initials now several times, but not finding it..


Ah, Jo - glad you are back. See you were up late. I wondered when we would hear from our errant retreater. SO GLAD you had fun. I simply said that to make us feel better about NOT being at one.... To console myself I ran down to Wax Saturday to TCS. Got some fun lovies - and they are all already put away....

AE is Ali Edwards. She has a phenomenal class going right now at BPS (Big Picture Scrapbooking). Our updates are every Thursday and so now I am living for Thursdays! (And still adore challenge posts on Mondays, too!)

Unlike every scrapper in the world I am new to the whole diecutting machine-- I picked up a sizzix jr on ebay a couple of months ago and bought one alpha set. And I was happy!

Then when all those sales were going on Jo picked up a few more alpha for me. They all come in containers so I am set there. BUT I do have about 10 shapes (I know small potatoes compared to what I read here on 2p's) That I want to find storage for. I already know that I want to add these to my Index card system (best idea ever--since sliced bread!)
Hoping you guys have some great ideas to share!
I really like the basket method that Wookie shared this morning.. Just gotta find the right size.

Easy week for me again as I have just some cricut carts and 4 cuttlebug embossing folders ( but no cuttlebug - I just use the rolling pin which mostly stays in my kitchen) All went into an ikea kassett box.

I'm still behind on the stamps image binder - so hopefully I'll get there soon.

NEWS flash - I finally got a desk!!! No more sitting on the floor to scrap. I ordered the target trestle in black finish - I assembled it and did a layout - It's a dream come true!!!!
( now I just need a chair)

I almost missed "Monday". Crazy Stamptoberfest is keeping me busy.

I am off to read the blog now. I did push my pencils into one area but until I get lucky and find containers to create my holder I'm on hold for that one.

I have sizzix/cuttlebug dies & embossing folders to store. For now they live in a recycled Welch's tray. I like it alot. I can flip through them like a crate. I just need to buy another set of fruit chews and I will have ample space and to cover them in pretty paper.

I only have about 25 large Sizzix dies and they're all in a box I got at Office Max last year for $5.

Just came back from 4 days in FL with my parents. They'd been having a heatwave until I showed up and temps dropped down to 56 at night and only 72 during day... Not bad, I guess, considering at home here in OH it was 26 this morning before I returned.

Happy Fall Ya'll!

Asinha- Glad to hear someone got new furniture!! Wish it were me!! hahaha

Has anyone found a container that fits the sizzlets? (since thats all I have) I did a quick search though my emtpy containers and haven't found anything I have on hand. (see penny you aren't the only one with an odd stash!)

Hobby- I think we all need a week just to decopauge our containers!! I have two cardboard boxes that I keep mini album supplies in that need a "facelift" --I keep saying next time we have a slow week I will get to it!

I think the reason I never gave them a "facelift" I think is because I don't know what adhesive or how to do it. I used some red-liner tape on a priority mailer and it doesn't stay stuck.

I got rid of most of my Sizzix dies, use my Cricut and organized my cartridges, books and inks right after getting them, but I also made a catalog to reference the cuts each of my cartridge makes, it helps alot, since I can't remember them all.

I'm ok this week. I have a few sizzlit alphas that I already put into the binders and baseball card holders a while back. I didn't even have to buy them. We had the binders sitting around and DH had the sleeves from many years ago!!! I also have some cricut carts that are stored in the boxes *gasp* in a drawer of my large sterilite cart that sits under my table. If I get any more I might need a different system...I have SCAL so I don't know how many more I'll get...

scrapnpea where did you get the images for your book? That's a great idea! I'm always pulling out multiple boxes before I find what I want. That I might have to do this week!

Vicky, wouldn't baseball card holders fit your Sizzlits? Stacy's pix I think showed them in a binder in sleeves....I don't have any so don't know their dimensions.

Mickeygirl, you can go to Provocraft.com and see the Cricut box images. If you will right click on it, you should be able to either save it to your hard drive or cut and paste it into a Word document. I made a similar book this summer when I took my carts out of their boxes. All of my print-outs of the boxes are in the same little book that my punch images are in.

At that same time, I also took out the foreign language pages in the booklets and I took them off their wire spines and put them together onto O-rings. I enjoy being able to flip through several books. I have 26 carts and 2 stacks of O-ring books. I have really enjoyed working with them much more now that they are set up like this.

Penny they might fit in the baseball card holder but unlike you if I put it in a binder I will never pull out the binder... one too many steps for this lazy gal!

Wow it sounds like you have a great system! I'll keep searching...

Ha! I did the baseball trading card thing that Stacey does - and guess what? I don't use them any MORE or LESS than I did before. (as in 'never' anyway).

Mickeygirl, I copied the back of my cartridge on cardstock and used that as the divider in the Cricut cartridge holder I made. I think Penny put the website on here before, or I did too (? can't recall) but I love my new holders. Less sloppy and takes up less space than the 10 books did.

I haven't read through Stacey's links yet, so I'm off to to that.

I will say that I've several people with drawers attached to desks or cabinets that have put their Sizzix in them and I love that idea! Sing with me: (tune from "If I only had a heart" Wizard of Oz) "if i only had a drawer.....' but I don't, so....

The other thing I don't like is that alphabet stamps are on one shelf, Sizzix big alphabets are on another shelf, Sizzlet dies are somewhere near, and the cricut stuff is elsewhere. Size wise, they won't all fit together, but I'm going to work on making an 'alphabet' zone this week.

I have finally wrestled all my diecuts into 2 binders, my colored pencils are with the rest of my writing utensils and I'm ready for die week My DH walked into "the command center" (aka scraproom) as he likes to call it and said "there's a lot more floor in here!".
Nice. So I must be making progress!!

I have the cricut and CB. All my CB dies and folders are in a binder with my stamps. I have a few left to punch out for my index/file system. My carts are in a drawer in my hutch and they fit perfect. I would like to pull my instruction and cutting books apart and combine them like Penny does but for some reason I have a heck of a time doing that... it's not like I'm going to sell them or get rid of them??

Also my Pioneer albums came from Costco today so I'm going to be filing pics like crazy after I'm done grading tests and entering grades online. This challenge and all you Peas have helped me SO much!! Now I just need to go back and tackle kits and paper.

if you like the baseball page storage, Sizzlits WILL indeed fit. Regualr little square ones, not the bigger ones. If you don't want the binder- do yuo have room on the wall? You could hang the binder pages on the wall, landscape.

My large dies are stored in fabric bins on the shelf above my die cutter. Sizzlits are in Sizzlit containers (I've tried other stuff but those containers work the best). I have two fabric over-the-door storage things with the pouches and they hang on the wall. One holds my cutting mats for the die cutter, embossing stuff,etc. Works well and was cheap.

Yep, I butted in! LOL

As for putting the paper on your priority mail boxes,etc, the best is Mod Podge. Yep.

I got oen at JoAnns on clearance- they had that storage line geared towards college kids. I got a bright blue one for $3.00. I got a bright pink one at Meijer , again on clearance , for $5.00. I like the fabric better than the plastic!!

Check it off the list-- Done and Done
Here it is I ended up using the coupon holder. Its a temporary solution until I can find the right size basket.

I also punched them out and put them on index cards.. just not sure if they should have their own tab (sixxiz dies) or if I should integrate them into the other tabs from the stamping...

Kelly in MN -

Any chance you can post a picture of how and what you used to get your cuttlebug dies into a binder? I'd like to go this route, but am having a hard time finding what will work, except actually ordering the provocraft cuttlebug binder stuff.

Thanks!

Nice job Vicki! Sing with me... "If I only had a coupon holder.." j/k

Krisine - any binder will work - I bought some similar to Wookiemouse's and bought baseball trading cards.

I haven't done the punch out the image thing yet. Most of mine are alphas, and I copied the back of the box they came in to put in the binder. I haven't used my little dies of pumpkins and such in YEARS! (too much stuff - not enough time to use it all).

But I am going to have to get crackin' on this die thing soon as I'm buying the new wonderful dies from SU! LOVE em!

I"m thinking I'll make one big reference binder with stamps, dies, and punches all under category headings. I have stamps, dies and punches that could file under 'seasons' and 'floral' for sure! Like I just made a cute, cute Thanksgiving card using the wide oval punch - and I could post a sample of how to make a great pumpkin using that punch under seasonal.

Oh - I did buy these really cute picnic baskets at a friends sample sale for $10 each to put my stamps in! Stamps and colored scraps have been in a plastic bin with a great topper lid, but I am trying to lose the plastic in the room. The picnic baskets fit under my tea cart, have a lid so they are closed when not in use, and can sit on top of each other if I go to a crop! The only bummer is that she didn't have two in the same color so I'd deciding now on the best two out of three basket colors to go together. I'll take a pic and post soon!

Miss ya'll! working is seriously interfering with Pea time. (although we had a camp for our 5th graders this week and I got to tear apart owl pellets with them - it was a great day. So I do get to do some fun stuff at school too!)

Kristine - Yes I will post a picture but it will be later tonight after Miss M goes to bed since my DH is working today. I just use a regular school 3-ring binder from Wally with baseball card holder pages, 3.5 x 5 photo pages & CD/DVD holder pages from Office Depot (just like Jennifer Mcquire's stamps). The cd/dvd holders house my CB embossing folders perfectly! Love this system!!

Guess what happened at my house today??? DH wired my scraproom for an overhead light---I ordered one a couple of days ago from Overstock.com Can't wait!!!

Wow Vicky - I am super jealous of new overhead light. It has been on my wish list for like a year now.... Yea for you!

DH wanted to take me out to dinner last night and that turned into a drop off kid/eat fast dinner/run errands/pick up kid event in the COLD that didn't end until 11:30 PM. Then today I had to get DS 1 at Lacrosse field AT 8 AM so that was more ick. He had a tourney that ate into my day a lot.... But super gorgeous day and I like to watch lacrosse so it was a nice break.

I am going to order those scrap caddies I think for my Cricut carts. I thought, too, Kelly about those DVD holders for the Cuttlebug folders. I think I am going to hold off on those until I get the Scrap Caddies here to see if maybe they can fit into those things.

I finally landed on a solution for pens. I thought I would repurpose the Durkie French Fried Onion things but then I thought "not durable" and then I decided to show DH the PVC pipe thing and he loved that and went to Lowe's on his day off and came home with $3 worth of pipe and cut it with his hand saw. Disaster. It looks like a bad kindergarten project. So then I was back to the Durkie FF Onion cans. So I go in there to retrieve them and see - lo and behold - nice neat TIN cans from my Republic of Tea. {Yes, I save several unique sizes of cans.....} WELL, I am happy to report that they are the same diameter as the PVC pipe and they look great! I do need to cover them and we need to glue them together - so my IDEA for the pens is worked out I just haven't finished it. Seems like a pattern with Pens and Die Cuts....

But I continue to make progress getting pictures printed and into Library of Memories system and I am current on my AE class and I keep my room clean after I do something so all is not lost. Oh - and what about all those new MS punches at Michael's? I have to say they are pretty cute....

I am happy to report that my templates were organized during Pattern Paper week as I store them in a Cropper Hopper so maybe NEXT week I can actually finish up PENS and order my Cricut cartridge holders and wrap up die cuts....

Have a super Saturday!

{And Vicky I LOVE the order AND uniformity of binders!}

Penny-
Not sure how your going to glue metal tins? maybe wiring them together would be an option? or even use little nuts and bolts?

Waiting until tomorrow to hear about templates...not sure I know what those are?

I did think about little nuts and bolts but I think they would A) be hard to perfectly align and hard to keep them from impacting pen storage.

What do you think about gorilla glue? Or even super glue? They will have paper around them so it will be paper to paper.....

Hobby I noticed you had stopped coming to our playgroup. Been missing you!

Kelly your binder looks great!! {says the binder queen}

What are liquid nails? We had a lacrosse tournament this weekend and so we got home this afternoon all wind-blown and pooped. I finished up my AE class assignment but I can tell you neither DH nor I were interested in putting together pen holders! Maybe this week!

Liquid nails is a paste-y glue type of stuff that my DH uses all the time. You can get it at HD, Lowes, ect. That stuff will not move once it is set and a little goes a long ways! Contractors and wood workers use it a lot.

HTH!

Glad you like my binder system, Binder Queen!!!

I've managed to keep my dies pretty well organized...so I didn't have too much to do this week.

One little trick I stumbled upon quite by accident is to store the Quickuz 4x8 alphas in their packaging, in the binder...like this:



I like this method because it allows me to see the font easily and it's um, f-r-e-e! Can't beat free.

Kelly -

Thanks for posting a picture. Now I can visually see how and what the cuttlebug dies fit into, especially the larger embossing dies. Now what about some of those larger dies, the 3x3 and the long skinny alphabet ones; what do you use for those?

I'll have to make a trip to Office Depot this weekend!
