Scrapbook Storage for Die Cuts + Embossing Plates

Mar 2011 3235

Right now I’m keeping all of my die cuts and embossing plates in this decorative metal bucket. There’s only room for a handful more but I won’t be buying anymore for a while. I have plenty to last me a long time!

A Tip for Easy Die Cut Retrieval

Mar 2011 3241 (1)

One thing I refuse to waste time on are the plastic lips that close over plastic packages. Trying to pry them open and — even worse — trying to get the item past the plastic lip when you’re putting them back IN can really mess up your artistic flow. How sad is that when a bit of plastic is so grumpy that it scares your muse away?

I like to cut those plastic lip-thingies off so they can’t mess with me anymore.

Look how easy my dies slide in and out of the package now! Oooh! Ahhh!
