Here is my latest organization item, magnets.  I have been using all of those many magnets that come with a business name on them or sports schedules.  Yesterday I purchased a magnet sheet at the craft store and cut it into small pieces, about 4 inches by 5 inches and some smaller.  I then arranged my dies by size onto those magnets and placed them into my Sizzix plastic envelops.  I have many Sizzix dies and store those in those envelopes.  Now I want more magnets for my Spellbinders dies.  I store those in the original packaging and I think dies would help in selecting the proper size and getting rid of the tape.

I bought a Sizzix Flip-it die recently and it is so much fun.  I need to make more cards with this die.  I bought it at Amazon, so it's price was wonderful around $12 with shipping.

I saw the Tool 'N One advertised and tried to find one so hubby could give it to me for Christmas but since I was ordering from Amazon it was not on their site. But I do have some tools that are much like dentist tools which work but it is a lot more tedious. However, if I get a good die cut I can usually just rub over them with my fingers and they fall out fairly easy too.

Do any of you use a die you can't see through, because it is solid metal?  There is a trick to cut your shape on a piece of paper leaving space so you can use the negative portion.  Then lie this negative over your stamped image. Your die will fit perfectly over your image now.  I am on a device where I can't link but will do so when I am able.

I am liking what I have been reading in the comments.  I am looking forward to getting to know you all better.  I am physically challenged with my M S today and other days, so I will read comments and use what I learn when I can.

To all who may have some difficulties with cutting those very "intricate" dies, here is a link to a You Tube video from Karen Burniston that demonstrates the softener sheet method to prevent your dies from sticking.

The dryer sheet technique to which I referred can be found on you tube under "the best technique EVER" with Deb. There is also one by Karen Burnistin and several others. The basic premise: Fold four cheap, unscented dryer sheets in half. After cutting die place on folder dryer sheets and run it back through. The die releases, the chads remain on the sheets - no muss, no fuss.
I went to Dollar Store for dryer sheets, got everything but... So have only used it a couple of times with Bounce. It seems to work well.

Thanks. I might look for some sheets then.

Hi all and especially Verna Angerhofer. I purchased 1x2 ft sticky backed magnet sheets and use those to store my dies on my wall next to my Big Shot. I used adhesive labels to identify brand/style/size and keep the original package in a box under the counter. My dies are visible and easy to access making them much more user friendly and quick to use. Hope that helps!

I actually have an ebosser im not using if anyones interested.  Its too heavy for my arms.  Im ill and cant lift much more then my sugarbear yorkie. 

Comment by Verna Angerhofer on February 1, 2015 at 1:01pm

Thanks for metioning the Ebosser as I almost was tempted to order one. My Big Kick will cut dies if I use a metal plate with it but they are so hard on me cranking the handle. Another machine I have given lots of thought to is the Vagabond. It is made by the same company that makes my Big Kick so when I finally decide to purchase an electronic machine I think that might be my choice. I don't want anything too complicated. One of the drawbacks seems to be my not having room for another machine. And, even if I did purchase an electric one I will still keep the hand crank type. There might be a time when the electricity goes off. LOL
