Video: Die Storage + Giveaway


After sharing my clear and cling stamp storage system (HERE), I have been getting lots of requests to share my wafer thin die storage system. This has been working so very well for me (and even works with embossing folders).

I really love these pockets! So handy. You can store more than one in a pocket if you want.

Here are links for the products featured:

I also have a couple other die storage ideas…

The first is to adhere thin magnetic sheets to the inside of cabinet doors. This one would be good if you only have a few dies or have some frequently used dies you want easy access to. (I plan to add this inside my cabinet doors for the few I use the most.) I first showed this awhile back and still like it a lot. You can find magnetic sheets for this HERE and HERE. (You could also use these sheets in a binder system.) Here is this idea shown in my old craft room…

Another option for you is the ArtBin Magnetic Die Storage Case. I have checked this system out and it works very well. Something worth considering, too!

Let me know if you have questions or storage ideas to share!

  1. You always have the most amazing storage ideas! Thanks again for the inspiration and of course the chance to win!

  2. bonjour,
    j’habite en France.J’ai commencé le scrap en décembre 2012, j’ai adopté dés le départ votre systême de rangement des tampons (stamp) et c’est super génial. Comme je n’ai pas encore beaucoup de die ils sont rangés dans un classeur sur feuille magnétique .Merci de nous faire partager vos idées de rangement et technique
    bonne journée

    i got some fridge binz for my clear stamps – love it. Thanks for pointing we can use them for the dies too. Now for some easy storage ideas for my Tim Holtz dies particularly the movers and shapers. Thanks for sharing and the op to win.
    ps I am going to Ikea’s website to check out the Expedite (sp?) system love the drawers you showed in the video

  4. i’ve been looking for a new way to store my dies, this looks great and would help me to be able too see all the dies and use them. what a great giveaway, good luck everyone!

    Thanks for sharing your tips for organizing your dies, I love this idea, I started with just a couple dies, but now have a “few” more…and I have been serching for a storage solution for them that makes it easier to find what I am looking for, this is awesome!! I am off to search for something similar to those bins you used. Thanks and have a great long weekend.

  6. I have stated to store my dies in a storage case, but I’m not entirely happy with it. Besides, my collection of wafer thin dies has grown steadily over the past year. Your solution looks wonderful. My only problem would be the storage containers. I’m afraid they will be hard to find here in Greece, and ordering them from Amazon in the UK is rather expensive. Anyway, thanks for sharing your ideas and thanks for the chance to win some storage pockets.

  7. How very organized you are. I’d love to tweak my system with some free pockets. Thanks for the chance, Jennifer.

  8. Karen Schroeder

    What a great organizing system! I would love to win some of the storage pockets. Thanks for the chance to win!

  9. Great idea. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Deborah

    Thanks for sharing your ideas Jennifer. I’ve been working on organizing my clear stamps with your system and it is great! On to the dies next.

  11. Marti

    Great storage ideas; appreciate your artistic creativity and your organizational sensibility

  12. RedGem

    Great ideas… and you’re always looking out for us! I have ordered some of the Office Depot pockets and will pick up tomorrow. They should give you some commission you give them a lot of business. Love ya!

  13. Love your clear and simple storage system! Very inspiring! Afraid I won’t need a container for 300 dies (or afraid will need lol).

  14. I really love your storage solution. I appreciate the uniformity and versatility of it. I’m praying for something to happen with me and my family soon, and if that goes through I’d finally be able to invest in some new storage solutions to organize many of my supplies properly, the way I’ve really always wanted, and finally revamp my craft area. I’m so hoping my prayers are answered because after seeing your videos, I think I really want to give this storage system a try, for my dies, embossing folders, and acrylic/cling stamps …. it just might be the storage solution to keep for ever! It seems so functional, plus it does not take a lot of space. Two definite pluses. I’ve really been enjoying seeing the different things you’ve been able to do to make your craft room just like you wanted with the remodel. I’ve been anticipating you sharing the finished room. I’m sure I’ll fall in love with it when I get to see it all done. Thanks for sharing in such detail. I appreciate it, and I’m sure many others do as well.

  21. Cathy Max

    I have a small stamp area and lots of clear stamps. Love this storage idea! I need to try a new system and this one might work.

  22. Avra

    I have an Art Bin case that is very full and heavy with Spellbinders dies. I can see that if I collect some of the smaller dies I will need an additional storage solution for them. Would love to try these pockets!

  23. WOW!!! You are so organized!!! I can only hope to be that well organized some day!!! I have somewhat started with my Spellbinder dies. I use the ArtBin Magnetic Die Storage Case and I love it but I won’t to try your system for my other dies and possibly by stamps!!

  24. Angel Estes

  34. Diane Wien

    I really enjoy your storage videos. I have been using some cases and magnetic sheets similar to the ones from Crafter Companion Co. However, I haven’t figured out a good filing system for this storage. You have it down to a science and I truly appreciate your tips. Thanks so much! Diane Wien

  35. LaurieJ

    Wow, great organization! Makes me want to go and redo mine. :) Thanks for the opportunity to win a great prize.

  36. I am always amazed how others organize their supplies. I LOVE this die organization. I have so many that I don’t know what to do with and just have to wrestle through a box to find what I want. Thank you for posting!!

  37. Colleen

  42. Elizabeth K.

    I really like your system and am adopting it myself. Been ordering like crazy from Simon Says Stamp for the die and stamp sleeves and just placed my order with Bed Bath and Beyond for the binz! Can’t wait to get my stamps and dies better organized so I can use them with easy and truly enjoy all I have.

  43. michelle n

  45. Reece

    Love this idea of thin dies storage. I got all the supplies and ready to go.
    Would you share a little bit more about using the Brother labeling machine. It seems that I waste a lot of the tape.
    Thank you,


  46. Brenda Helman

    The die pocket storage idea is brillant! Wow!

  47. Leslie pauline

    Hi, I have followed you for over 3 years, love all you storage, card, etc. ideas. I tell everyone I see to ck out your website, just wanted u to know big fan of your work not a stalker lol. Love the die idea, would love to win I never win anything but thought what the heck, good luck all, this is my first time doing one of your give away , thank again for all your ideas and suggestions through the years.


    Hello…I LOVE your organization of your die cuts and even your cling stamps. You covered a lot of great ideas, but I was curious as to exactly how you categorize them? I have several cling stamps & dies (not nearly as many as you though) and I’m constantly fumbling through a pile just trying to find what I’m looking for. ALSO…how do your organize/categorize them if what you purchased came in a “set” and there’s more than one die plate type of designs all within the same set? Any suggestions or ideas you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

  49. Donna G

    Great Storage Ideas! And affordable! Thanks!

  50. Beverly Lausen

    Jennifer, Bought storage bins for my stamps and dies last month after watching your video. Well, something must be wrong, because when I tried to use bins you suggested and the clear pockets you also suggested, they don’t fit. The bins are 5 7/8″ at the top but slant in at the bottom to 5″. Now my question is what am I doing wrong??? Since it appears everyone else that followed your storage ideas are having not problems. Please help me with this.
