If you have different metal dies, thinlets and thin cuts from Spellbinders, Sizzix, Avery Elle, Mama Elephant, Simon Says Stamp, Close to My Heart, Stampin’ Up, etc. that you use in your Cuttlebug, Sizzix BigShot, Tim Holtz Vagabond, Anna Griffin, etc. die cutting machines, I can help you organize them!

When all of my dies are put away in drawers or hidden with their coordinating stamp sets, I forget about them. Part of the plan for my craft studio remodel was to store similar things together in stations. I watched some videos other crafters shared and got the idea from them. The video I made was to show you how I put my spin on it.

So, if yo’ve been looking for a way to remove your thin metal dies from their original envelopes and organize them on DIY chipboard-backed magnet material, this video will show you how!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
