Default I'm curious why everyone feels the need to add magnets..

to their die storage? I understand if you take them places like crops, but if you just use them at home, why is there a need to put the dies onto magnetic sheets? Are you afraid you'll lose them or they'll fall out of the sleeve or something? I figure, since everyone does it, there must be a reason.
I've always just kept mine in sleeves without magnets. I think the extra expense must be huge, and I'm looking for the point in it.
Thanks so much!
Karen

I keep mine on magnetic sheets to keep them all in place. I don't have mine in sleeves though - I just have them smaller 2 ring folders so it's easy to flip through and pick off what I like.

I get my sheets for free - they are left over magnetic calendars that a friend uses for his business.

Well I understand doing it if it's free, lol, but I am guessing most people have to pay the added expense of magnets. Just trying to see what I'm missing for those that put magnets into a sleeve.

Karen, for me it is.. if I see it I will use it and easy of getting into. Hmmm expense? 10 dvd holders for a dollar apiece and magnet vent covers that will do 3 sides (or one and a half dvd holders) for a dollar. So 16 dollars? But they are all uniform and I buy from several different manufacturers.

I use the magnet to store alphabets, it keeps all the letters in place and I don't have to dig around or spread them all out to find the letter I want. And some of my die sets that have many pieces to keep them arranged, but that is about all since I got my new sleeves that close at the top. So dies like my circles and squares I just leave in there loose.

To me they are easy to store and I hate the packaging they come in.

I'm currently storing min in folders, 2 sets to a folder. The magnet keeps the dies from falling to the bottom or coming out when I tote the file around. That's for my Spellbinders and Lifeststyle/Quickutz. My Memory Box I keep in their envelopes.

I do not use magnets. I keep mine in plastic cd envelopes in drawers alphabetically and this has really worked well for me.

I use magnets on the ones with multiple sizes so when I store them they don't rub together and get scratched. Also, it's easy to see if one is missing and hiding someplace in my craft room.

That's what I do, except mine are by shape, not alphabetical.

For me, mainly this. I like that it's easy to look at my storage sheets with magnets and see exactly what dies are there, but it's more so that it's easy to see where the die needs to go back to, afterwards. And whether one is missing BEFORE I empty the garbage can.

I have them on magnetic sheets and then in a storage box. I do this so i can flip through and easily see what I am looking for. I really like it for the nesties, because I can so easily find one size up or down for matting. I store them by shape - so if I know I want a circle, just flip through all my circles until I find a pattern I like.

I'm considering doing this and tossing the bulky packaging. I have a large tote that holds all my dies and figure I can fit more in it that way. The vent covers seem like the cheapest way to go, the craft store magnets cost more.

Thought about putting the Framelits type dies in a binder, but figured it would get heavy and not be easy to handle. I'll be 63 next month and I have to consider ergonomics these days. I had to get physical therapy and 2 cortisone shots for my right shoulder a few years ago from stitching with a long strand and pulling my arm in and out of the fabric for a couple of evenings. It HURT!

I use the magnets to keep the dies evenly spread over the entire area of the sleeve, rather than all bunched at the bottom. Less chance of damage, and they are more uniform (which makes my symmetric heart happy) The relatively small cost of the vent covers is totally worth it to me.

I had a binder going, but it got heavy and the pages "sagged", so I put all the "pages" in a small bin-type thing I picked up from Target's Dollar Spot. Smaller dies are in CD sleeves in a CD holder. Both are easy to flip through to find the one I want.

does anyone know where to get those plastic envelopes where the flap snaps closed - may memory box dies come in them. I think they would be great to hold spellbinder dies and not need magnets. Happy stamping...Bobbi

Same for me. I have way to many for a binder and the binders get heavy. I tried the snap envelopes for awhile but I didn't like digging them out of the envelope.

CTMH and Sizzix both sell the envelopes.

The only ones I keep on magnets are the ones that won't hang on pegs.

Mine are on magnets so they don't slide around in the CD cases....but then I have the issue of getting the die off the magnet! Now I need to either get a magnet to lift them up or get rid of the magnets they are on. I'm thinking this one through before I invest anything. I hate re doing storage and that has happened more than once!

I trim magnetic vent covers to fit CD cases to store my nesting dies. I'm afraid that they will get bent without the magnet -- nesties cost too much to risk it.

I have mine on magnets in CD cases, too, but I just use strips of magnets: one strip for smaller dies, two strips for larger dies and sets (like nesties). Generally holds them well (except if I drop the case), and there's room to maneuver them off.

I keep mine on magnet sheets as I don't want them bent or wrecked while being stored. I keep them in a CD wallet...one for Nestabilites and one for Pendants. My other dies are stored on magnet sheets in backpack files similar to this. It's amazing how many dies one can store in 12" .

I have mine on magnetic sheets in A5 binders. Two binders, at the moment. I am not a huge collector of dies though- mine are mainly basics- octagons, a few of the various Labels shapes, some flowers, etc. I like them like this as its easy to flip through the folder and see what would suit my project, and I know I haven't mislaid any!

I love the new magnetic DVD cases that I bought to keep all that stuff together. No more searching or having to pull dies off sticky tape. No more worries about them falling out or get lost (which I am very prone to). Just peace of mind and makes me **feel** like I am organized, even if i'm not!

Karen,

here you go!

Robot Check

I got them in the mail and absolutely adore them. I can store the stamps that match the dies on one side and the actual dies on the other.

Apparently you can make your own by cutting in half a magnetic sheet, but I'm not that talented....

When I first starting using dies, I kept my Nestie sets in the original packaging - I just trimmed the top of the plastic sleeve straight across so that the folder that the dies were taped to stuck up a bit and I could grab it. That worked okay for a little while, but then the tape lost it's oomph and the dies would fall off. And I began to have a lot of sets. And it was a drag shoving the folder back in the plastic sleeve. So I switched to magnetic sheets and it made it so much easier. So then I switched my non-Nesties to magnetic sheets as well. I have spent a decent amount of money setting up my die storage system but absolutely no regrets. It was totally worth it in terms of creative workflow and reducing the chance of losing dies.

I store mine on magnets so they won't get bent or scratched. And I thought maybe the cutting edge would last longer if it wasn't rubbing against the metal of the other dies.

Because I'm OCD??? Mostly it's because I thought (hoped) that having the magnet would keep the dies from getting bent or damaged. It also appeals to my sense of order to have my nesties arranged all nice and neat and not shifting around in their homes while I'm asleep.

I bought mine at Menards. If I recall correctly, I found them in the section where the floor vents etc. were located. I didn't find them on my own - I asked a sales rep for help.

The sheets that came with my DVD cases are just the ones that you can buy by Avery that can be peeled and stuck to full sheets of paper and cut. You can also use business card magnets all lined up....stationary section in Walmart.

Good luck! and happy stampin!

I have purchased many packs at Home Depot. They are in the heating department.

to find vent covers go to Home Depot, Lowes and Dollar Tree...(Dollar Tree is cheaper and they are more rigid).
