MFT Organization Event Day 3 - Die-namics

Welcome to day 3 of a week filled with ideas and tips to get your crafty area organized! Today's focus is Die-namics, and I'm going to show you how I currently organize my growing Die-namics collection. Always keep in mind that you have to find what works for YOU, not because someone else is doing it this way or that.

Not only are you going to find a ton of ideas linked from the MFT Blog, you're going to be eligible to win a prize package on each of the 5 Days to an Organized Crafty Stash event.

Yep, you guessed it, I store my Die-namics in the same style bins as my stamps and stencils. Actually, the majority of my crafty supplies are stored in these rolling carts. I use a few of the same Die-namics categories as the MFT Store and a few of my own hybrid categories which are labeled with my trusty washi tape and black Sharpie, keeping my organization system very low cost and easy to implement.

I can't tell you enough that I love the flexibility they allow me. I can easily switch bins in and out, sort and split collections that become too large for a bin and change the label with little to no effort. They also keep everything out of sight when needed.

Here's a peek inside my borders bin. Magnetic strips keep these long and narrow dies in an orderly fashion where I can quickly scan and grab what I need. The thing I don't mind about scanning through my bins is that it allows my creativity to be sparked by seeing another product that I might not have considered combining with my current idea had I not seen it.

Die-namics collections, such as the Blueprints line, are housed on magnetic sheets placed inside clear pockets.

My last photo shows another Die-namics storage solution that works for those dies that you want within reach at all times.  My Fishtail Flag collection is one that I use consistently enough to warrant table top status!

Thanks for taking a tour with me today. Come back tomorrow for more ideas to get your crafty space in order. Now, head on over to the MFT Blog to see what's in today's prize package. Good luck!

Oh great storage ideas. I so need some fishtail dies, sigh.... But I am really impressed with how you store the border dies. So easy to see and reach in and grab what you need. Thanks for sharing.

love this...it is so helpful, if I had all the materials you do it would sure be wonderful but probably very overwhelming to to keep organized too! Great ideas!

I keep all of my dies in Art Bin magnetic totes. It keeps them all contained and portable too.

That's a lot of space to devote to the border dies -- think you'll do a second layer? I do like the idea of the basket on your desk with the most used dies, another idea I can use -- thanks Amy!
