Smile Nestabilities Storage - Suggestions, Ideas?

I'm asking my fellow SCS'ers for some guidance:

So I finally purchased the nestabilities a while back and have been doing some research on google's blog search (great tool) about how people are storing their nestabilities. I read about the cd cases. I read about the photo albums with magnetic backing, and then I read about Quickutz magnetic storage binder. Does anyone have a preference? Which one is better? Is one storage idea way cheaper than the rest? What do you suggest? TIA!

I used to store them just on the sheets the came on, and put that sheet in a tin storage container. That worked well until I filled it up with dies and embossing folders.

I just moved all of mine into a plastic [storage box] with magnetic sheets. I greatly prefer the magnetic sheets to tape or other adhesives because you can easily move them around. And with a whole magnetic sheet you can position your dies anywhere on the page.

What a great way to store the nesties. I am using the CD cases, but after seeing your storage method I think I am going to switch to how you store the nesties.

My big problem with the CD case is with my Scalloped Hearts and Scalloped Squares Large, they don't nest into each other like the other sets do so I have some that are not sticking to the magnetic sheet and are loose. With the binder method I can make sure that all the nesties are on the magnetic sheet and don't come loose.

I guess that I will be doing some more shopping for the binders in the next little while. Thanks so much for sharing how you store your nesties.

I take the 8 x 10 magnet sheets (from WalMart) and adhere them to heavier chipboard (so they don't flop around) and these go into a storage container, but can easily be put into a three ring binder.

I saw someone else here that took Magnetic vent covers and then cut them to fit her nesties. I have the binder boxes too but I prefer right now them hanging from my Ikea rails. Here is a picture for you to see ..TFL

ETA There are 27 sets in hanging on those hooks!!! Great space saver!!

These are great ideas! I've had mine stored in CD cases but find that they don't work so well. I'm going to rethink that and look into the magnetic sheets and the hanging! My problem is I don't have a lot of wall space!

I used the QK magnetic albums, but now I am using the new QK long Storage binders with the magnetic sheets. Keeps everything contained in 1 place.

Someone had suggest the magnetic vent covers and I found a pack of 3 for $4.97 from Home Depot. They work great. I connected all 3 and nailed them to the wall and painted over the nails with black acrylic paint. I also bought some QK magnetic folders that I need to try. I'm fine with the ones on the wall for now. But I think I'll start storing ones I buy from now on in the folders.

I also use the Quickutz Magnetic Storage Binders...folders... whatever you all wanna call them.

I prefer to have all the sizes of one shape easily accesible to figure out mats, etc. I can fit all 4 sets and then some of each shape, like my Circle folder has all the plain, scallops and pinking in one. I love this system.

Spellbinders just released a new tote bag and die case, it will be available in March! Here is a link http://spellbinderspaperarts.com/die-carry-case.html

The pages have different sized pockets for dies with a flap over the top of the pocket so the dies won't come out unless you want them to!

I shared my storage solution (Quickutz binders) back in June 2008 on my blog. They are organized by shape and then stored in a Cropper Hopper paper holder. It works GREAT for me. You can see details and pictures here. HTHs.

In my humble opinion the answer depends on what preferences do you have. If you are a visual person, you would like to see what you have. Is your concern a small space, the solution is different. I have asked myself the same question not long ago, and this are the solutions I found:

For small spaces:

I like the Mgnetic Vent Cover idea, but we don't get those over the big pond. So I use CD cases for the standard ones and the bigger ones...Hmm still working on that one.
But I have found that 'tacky' photo-albums work really well for brass stencils so might go that route, as I am a organise it and label it sort of person, and books on bookshelves, library style works well for me.

Where in Home Depot can I find the magnetic vent covers. I asked several employees about these, and they all sent me to the register (vents) aisle, but I could not find any of the magnetic sheets there.

Someone suggested the little hard plastic binders from Gina K. I ordered a set of 6 of these and ALL my Nesties fit in just two of them. You get the pages seperately but they are very cheap. Two sets per page and you can use front and back. These cases seal all the way around so you will not lose anything. Also you attached the nesties to the sheets with magnetic tape. I had put all mine in CD cases which worked great but took up a lot more space. This is an awesome solution.
Blessings.

Wow. Thanks guys for all these great suggestions. This really gives me WAY more ideas that I had originally thought. Now all I have to do is pick just ONE idea.

i work at a home depot, they are indeed in the vent or ducting isle. they are hanging on a "clip strip". they dont really have a spot on the shelf, they just hang near all the vent covers. after reading all of the ideas i bought some myself. i am using a c.d. binder for my nesties and i can cut 3 c.d. size squares per sheet. i can also use my left overs and put 2 smaller pieces together to get the proper size to make a 4th. i dont mind if there is a seam or not.

Where can you buy magnetic sheets? I saw someone bought them at Walmart - but what department?

Thanks!

Default Nestablilities Storage

I started out with the Quickutz Magnetic Folder Books but they are really heavy when filled with the Nesties. I found a zippered double CD case at Staples. There are 4 openings on each page. I cut the magnetic sheets to the size of the opening and mount it on cardboard like from cereal boxes. The Nesties stick to the magnet and slide in and out very easily. Plus they are completely visible. There must be 20 pages in the book and on a double page spread you can have the whole set of circles with the corresponding scallops and pinking dies all in the 8 spaces that face each other. I can zip it closed and it's light and portable. Hope this explanation was easy to understand. Kathy or Megz Mom

Yup, that's exactly where I found mine. There were only 2 left hanging from what you call the "clip strip."

I use magnetic strips in these same plastic binder cases and they work great. I never thought about using magnetic full size sheets.

I can usually get 8 sets of "normal-sized" Nesties in the QK Magnetic Folders (official name is Magnetic Storage Book, for Googlers). Four sets of the long rectangles fit with room to spare. The new 12" border dies aren't going to fit in the folders. I'll have to find some other place for those when the time comes.

Amazon has the folders on their 3-for-4 promo right now. Since the total is over $25, shipping is free, and there's no tax (at least for me in Ohio).

Buy 4 and pay for 3 -- the price works out to $9.74 each. You might find a Hobby Lobby or someplace that'll take a 40% off coupon, but you can only get one at a time (unless you take your kids with you and hand them a coupon and $10 ) and my HL only stocks 2 folders at a time.

I bought 8 on Amazon and didn't have to drive all over the place. They cost me about $1.40 each more than with a coupon (assuming I could have found them with a coupon). Worth it to me.

I just checked and they're backordered on Amazon. You can still place your order and they won't charge your card until it ships. Amazon really does hold off on the charge, too, unlike some other sites that charge right away, regardless of whether or not they intend to ship your product in the near future.

http://www.amazon.com/Quickutz-Revol...3922451&sr=8-1



The QK Magpie system is also B3G4, along with the nesting tins. The orders total more than $25, so free shipping applies. Amazon takes the lowest-price item as the free 4th item, so don't put the $9.99 tins in the same order as the $29.99 storage units, or they'll use the tins as your free 4th item(s). Shipping is free, so separate your orders (storage in one, tins in another) to get the 4th storage unit free.

Storage unit/cabinet (also in white): http://www.amazon.com/Quickutz-Magpi...3922555&sr=1-1

Storage tins (all 3 colors are available and you can mix & match to get 4 sets): http://www.amazon.com/Quickutz-3-Pie...ch_ai_-2_1_tit

However when I got the new longer ones and the labels they didn't fit as well. Luckily I found a case exactly the same but double the length so they fit perfectly.

I have also used the vent covers (purchased 'em at Bed, Bath and Beyond . . . 3 sheets for $9.99, although I have since learned that they have them at WalMart & Home Depot cheaper). I used my ATG gun to adhere the vent covers to the inside of my cabinet doors. Here is a link to some photos on my blog;

Wow! Everyone has such great IDEAS!!! Nestie Storage has been such an issue for me too. I started off with the CD cases, and then I got the larger Nesties that wouldn't fit...so I put a few magnetic sheets on the side of my desk (it's one of those metal office types) and slapped 'em on. Not really an attractive solution at all. Thanks everyone~ I'm definately re-doing

I love so many of the ideas I've seen here but my wall and shelf space is very limited, I found these pockets made from Croper Hopper today and I was able to get 10 sets Nestabilities in one sheet of pockets. The back is really strong and I will just hang them from one of the binder holes on a hook. Here is a link to what I purchased although I got mine for much less at a LSS.

In my world, I have to 1)be able to see it to remember I have it 2)be able to get to it quickly 3)be able to afford it and 4)be able to keep it out of my son's hands...
Here is my solution:

Total cost: 1.97 for the hooks, about 2.00 for the binder rings... I have a lot more now, but they all fit on the shelf. Now when the new ones come out, I may need to add some to my shelf on the other side. Sigh.

I love the Quickutz magnetic storage binder, which I did purchase from HL with a 40% off coupon, so it was pretty reasonable. I absolutely LOVE IT! The only down side to this storage method is that is this magnetic binder does NOT accomodate many Nestie sets. I already need another oneand I only have around 8 Nestie sets, if that many.

i have been enjoying seeing how everyone stores theirs.
i have to be able to take mine with me, because i have been teaching some classes.
i made my own magnetic book with my bia.
i bought the thin magnetic sheets at walmart. 2/pkg for $2. i put 10 in my book with pockets on some of them to put my embossing folders in also.
here is some pics from my blog.

I bought some magnetic sheets at Staples to use for my Nesties. I cut them to size for a CD case but the Nesties don't stay on the sheets so when I opened the case some of them fell out - didn't lose any but wasn't happy. Some of the sets nest too tightly so used both sides of the regular CD case (not the slim line) so there was no overcrowding. Do you think the magnetic sheets from Walmart or the vent cover sheets from Home Depot are stronger? Dug out some of the thicker magnetic business cards I had taken off the refrig and attached them with my ATG gun and they worked better.

Might order some of the cases from GinaK for the Nesties and clear stamps.

Have 1 Quickutz binder but you can't see what you have stored in it so if I got more, I'd have to label them. They are strong but heavy.
