Staying Organized – Stamp and Die Storage Storage

Staying Organized – Stamp and Die Storage Storage


Hello and welcome. This is Jennifer. I have
another organization video for you today. This one is actually about how I stay organized.
So I have put together a container that has all the supplies I need to organize my stamps,
my dies and my stencils. Now I have this container ready so that whenever I have new products
come in the mail I can immediately put them in their pockets and have them organized.
This is really important for me to be able to do this. This is my job so I’ve got to
stay on top of things. If I don’t put things right away right away than it builds up and
I have a mess and it just takes forever. So I found that by taking a few hours to put
this container together I’m prepared for when I have new products coming in and it saves
me a ton of time in the long run. You’ll see in here I have a ton of pockets ready to go.
You really don’t have to have that many ready. I just did a bunch at once while I was at
it. So I’m good for a long time. I also keep my label maker in there, so everything is
ready. All you have to do is grab this and I can organize and be done. Then I have more
time to create. In this video I will give you a look at the various pockets that I use
for storage and I will also talk about the inserts that I create to go inside each of
them and the container that I hold all of this organization stuff in. I will also give
links to other videos where I give more detail on how I store these pockets once I have them
labeled and ready to go. Okay so let’s talk about the container that I use to keep all
these organization goodies in. This is a Linus container. If you’ve watched any of my videos
you know I use a lot of these containers in my craft room, because they are clear and
super strong. I will link to the one that I use. I think the size is pretty good for
this. There’s room for the label maker to be kept in the front also, so you can just
have everything that you need in one container. I really like this container. However, my
guess is that you might have something at home that would work for you already. Real
quickly. Speaking of label makers. I really love the one that I use. I have a video, which
I will link to here, and in my description below on how you can conserve the amount of
tape you use with that label maker. So be sure to check that out if you haven’t before.
Okay, so let’s dive into the contents of this container. Now I have all of my storage pockets
in this container and I have dividers separating them. A lot of people ask about the dividers
that I use, so I thought I would mention it here. I get plastic folders. You can either
get them online or at an office supply store. They are just plastic folders with pockets
and I cut them up to get this durable plastic. You could also laminate card stock sheets
and create your own, if you want to. I actually found this more cost effective. Especially
this time of year. You can get folders, plastic folders really cheap. Because they are all
on sale for back to school. I have these cut to about 7.25″x9″ and I use my corner rounder
to round the corners. Then I print a clear label across the top. These are the same type
of dividers that I use in my stamp storage and in my die storage, which I will talk about
in a moment. But I have them for dividers for the different type of storage pockets
I have here in this container. So as I mentioned I have white card stock inserts that I put
inside all of my storage pockets. Just for added durablilty and a nice look. I’ll be
showing you these in a few minutes. First I wanted to talk about the insert cheat sheets
that I created. I found I was always forgetting the exact dimensions I needed to create more
white card stock inserts. So I created these cheat sheets. I made mine out of yellow plastic
folders, just like I used for the dividers. I put a label across the top in the exact
dimensions on that label. So now anytime I need more white inserts for my stamp pockets
I can grab this and I know the exact dimensions that I need. So you can see this is cut to
be the same size as the white insert that I have put in my clear plastic pockets. Now
instead of cutting all these white inserts myself, I cheat and I take them to Kinko’s.
Here is what I do. I have my cheat sheet ready here. I’m just going to draw or trace lines
onto a piece of white card stock. This will be a guideline for Kinkos to cut these for
me. You can go to almost any office supply store and they have a machine that can cut
massive quantities of paper at once and it only costs a couple bucks a cut. So you can
cut a bunch of these at once if you want to. So this is exactly what I do. I write the
measurements in here and I draw the lines so they know where to create the cuts and
it saves me so much time. But even if you are cutting your own white card stock inserts,
I think it’s helpful to have this cheat sheet so you can easily know what size to cut. Now
the card stock I use for these inserts is an inexpensive white card stock from Neenah.
I don’t think you need to use anything of high quality at all. I will link to the Neenah
card stock I use. It is a different Neenah card stock than I use for my regular crafting.
It’s a lower quality, but it works perfect for this. Okay, so now that we have all the
basic information out of the way, let’s look at each specific storage pocket that I use
for my various craft supplies. First of all lets talk about the most popular one and that
is the stamp pockets I use for regular size stamps. So these are any clear stamp sets
that are 4″x6″ or smaller or cling stamps. So this is the size white insert that I use.
I will have all of this listed over on my blog. Here are the stamp pockets. Now the
stamp pockets that I use are from Avery Elle. They are available in packs of 25. Simon Says
Stamp also sells stamp pockets that are very similar and they’re in a pack of 50. These
stamp pockets are pretty durable. They have a flap on the top that you can tuck to make
sure that nothing falls out and if I have smaller stamp sets I usually put two per pocket.
If I have coordinating dies I put them in the back pocket. I have been using these stamp
pockets for years and I can not recommend them enough. I would say that about 95% of
the stamps I use fit in those pockets. But there are a few that don’t. There are some
companies, such as My Favorite Things, who make some stamp sets that are taller. These
are 4″x8″ stamp sets. You could be these in the regular stamp pockets that I just showed
you and they would stick out the top, which is perfectly fine. However if you are a little
uptight, like me, you my want a stamp pocket that would fit this a little bit better. So
I have fold some tall stamp pockets and that’s what I use. This is what you see here. These
are tall enough to hold this. Now the difference with these stamp pockets is they are thinner.
So they aren’t as durable as the one’s I showed you before and there is no closure. But I
have found these have worked great. I have been very happy with using these and I just
store these in with my other stamp pockets and they are just a little bit taller. There
aren’t many companies that make this size stamp set, but I think it’s good to have these
pockets on hand for these particular size stamps. Now the particular clear pockets that
I use for these stamps come a little bit taller than 8.25″ like you see here. So I actually
cut a little bit of the plastic off the top of the clear pockets. But that’s okay because
a trimmer will actually cut through several pockets at once. I just like to make these
as short as possible so they don’t take up too much room on my shelves. I think it’s
great to have a pocket that fits these stamp sets but again you could always use the regular
stamp pockets and just have the top stick out. It is totally a personal preference.
Okay so those are the stamp pockets I use for most of my stamps. If you are interested
in seeing a video in how I organize these stamps, what containers I use and how I divide
them up, please click here or in my YouTube description below to watch a video. It gives
all the information that you could ever need and the system is really working great for
me and I know many of you have taken this system on and like it also. There are a couple
other stamps that I do have pockets for. One is for large stamp sets that are about 6″x8″.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about this, so I wanted to be sure to share it.
I have a larger stamp pocket that I use for large stamp sets like this. There are a few
companies that do large sets. Including WPlus9 and Altenew. Now I will tell you the stamp
pockets that I have for these stamp sets are pretty snug. I wanted to make sure these pockets
were as small as possible. So that storage would be easier. So you can see it fits very
snug in here. Sometimes a stamp set is a little too wide and I just trim a little bit of the
extra plastic off the side. Now these are the thinner pockets again, but I haven’t had
any problems with it and there is no flap on these. But again I have had no problems.
The clear pockets come a little bit tall and I trimmed them down to be 8″ tall, because
I really want to minimize how much space this takes up. I have liked using these pockets
for these large stamp sets, because I don’t have to worry about anything falling out.
Since these stamp sets are so much bigger than the others I do store these seperate
from my other stamp sets. By the way with all these stamp pockets and white card stock
insert sizes I’ll have all the sizes listed over on my blog so you can find them very
easily. There is one more type of stamp pocket that I use and that is for background stamps.
These include cling stamps that are 6″x6″ square or smaller. I really like having all
of my background stamps together so I know where to go when I need one. These pockets
are very thin and I do cut the flap off the top so they are open, but I don’t really think
you need much more when you just have one large stamp in there. For a long time I didn’t
keep my background stamps in pockets and I finally put them in and I’m able to label
the now and keep them in some sort of order and I like that I don’t get ink everywhere.
It just keep everything nice and tighty. I do have some background stamps that will fit
into the original stamp pockets at the beginning of this video. But I have switched them all
over to these bigger pockets so all my backgrounds could be together. I also have a video on
how I organize these background stamps, the container I use, etc. I will link that here
and in my YouTube description below. So that’s a look at the very stamp pockets that I use.
Hopefully some of them will work for you also. There are a few other types of stamps out
there that don’t fit into the pockets that I’ve mentioned such as the Tim Holtz stamps.
I just have those stored seperately. I just know to go and look there also. Now this brings
us to one of my favorite products. And that is dies and the pockets that I use for them.
I’ve been using these pockets for some time now and I really like them. They are smaller
than the stamp pockets. They are very thick, they have a flap that you can tuck in to close.
I find that these hold most of my dies. Even my border dies often fit diagonally in these
pockets. I like that they are a little bit thicker because dies are metal and I don’t
want anything poking through. I’ve been really happy with this. These pockets were actually
intended to hold a CD or DVD, so you can buy them in large quantity packs. Now I do use
these for most of my dies. However, sometimes there are dies that don’t fit in these pockets.
In that case I use my regular stamp pockets. The Avery Elle ones. I have a section in my
die storage for larger die sets. If you are interested in watching more about my die storage
system, I have a video that I will link here and in my YouTube description below. The last
type of storage pocket I use is for stencils. Now I will say you could instead use the same
pockets that I talked about before for background stamps. Those will work for stencils too.
I just came up with these stencil pockets before I came up with the ones for background
stamps. The background stamp pockets are a little bit bigger. Okay, so stencil pockets.
These are a very thin, once again, and I cut the flap off of the top. So basically it’s
just a sleeve that kind of protects other things from your stencil. So if you have an
inky stencil or don’t clean it completely like I tend to do you can be sure that it
won’t get onto anything else and it won’t tangle up with other stencils. I will say
that a few of the brands of stencils that I have are taller and will stick out the top
of these pockets. But that doesn’t really bother me. I just want something to keep them
in to keep everything tidy. If you’d like to see a video on how I store my stencils
I will put a link here to the video and in the YouTube description below. So that wraps
up the type of storage pockets I use. Now in my little stay organized container I have
all of my pockets with the inserts in it, ready to go. So when I get a new product in
the mail I can take them out of their original package, but them right into one of these
and then go ahead and print the label. I hope this information was helpful to you . I’ve
been getting a lot of questions, so I wanted to make sure I put a video together with all
the information in one place. Remember to go to my blog. I took a lot of time to really
write everything out. All the measurements, the sizes the options. So I’m hoping it’s
helpful to you. Also if you are interested in more organization videos. I have a YouTube
playlist which you can click here or in the description below and there might be some
helpful information for you there also. I really feel by staying organized you can find
much more time to create and much more energy to create. No as always if you have any questions,
you can leave them in the comments below or you can go over to my blog at jennifermcguireink.com.
I link to the supplies that I talk about here in my description and over on my blog. Thanks
so much for spending some time with me today. I appreciate you watching and I hope to see
you again soon.

  1. Such great ideas Jennifer. Perfect timing since I'm reorganizing my scrap room! I'm already using some of these ideas you shared but I learned so many more tonight! Thank you!

  2. I just started putting my stamps in pockets over the past few days. Love how organized they are getting.

  3. Great video. I have used your organization ideas in many of my craft supply categories and have really loved your ideas. This is a lot of helpful info.

  4. Every night when I receive your newest video it highlights my evening. Always great and informative. Thank You! My tip on staying organized is by keeping a medium size Dollar Store basket near my craft table .As I'm done with Dies or stamps etc I just pop it in there. Then when I'm finished for the day it's a whole lot easier to just pick through the basket and put everything away. Same for scrap paper i have a FOLGERS big  plastic coffee container that I painted and it is multi-functional. One has the scraps, one is Misc. and the 3rd is for instruction booklets that come with anything related to my craft room. Thanks in advance for considering me in the give a way.

  5. I was just putting stamps in pockets tonight. Been wanting to do it for awhile and finally got everything I needed. Thanks for all your tips.

  6. Lawn Fawn has their mini sets that are about 2×4, how do you store yours? I also have some michaels dollar ones that are (about) 2 x 2 but I assume that I can use the same as the Lawn Fawn mini stamps, I just don't know what to use to store those.

    I really enjoy your organization, thanks for sharing it!

  7. How do you cut your plastic folders to size when making dividers? I know you've mentioned you use the We R Memory Keepers corner chompers, but what about the straight sides and top/bottom cuts? Do you use scissors or an x-acto knife?

  8. Very nicely done Jennifer ♥ It may take some time to organize, but it truly does allow for less frustration and more inspiration/creativity. All my best!

  9. oh my gosh!!!  Jennifer McGuire has now organized her organization!!!!    Don't you just love it??   I want to be just like you when I grow up.  Jennifer,  your systems have helped to save my sanity!!

  10. Thank you for sharing videos on how you stay organised, it is extremely helpful. Also, it is highly appreciated that you have a blog to go alongside it.

  11. Thanks for the tips on storage- I'm new to all this and quickly realising how much stash gathers and the need for organisation. Really appreciate the time you take to make your videos and pass on knowledge and experience xx

  12. I have the same type of thing Jennifer . . . only mine is a shoebox . . . and it's not quite as organised, but it is all in the same place, along with my labelling machine.  I must get some proper storage and section it off, like you.  Thank you!  Hazel xx

  13. Thanks for another great organizational video Jennifer. As much as I love stamping, I LOVE to organize. My stamping peeps are always teasing me about constantly changing things around but when I "find" better, more efficient ways to keep organized, I do it! (Yet I am the one they call when they need help organizing THEIR rooms! LOL) Thanks for sharing!

  14. Nice video on organizing. I do love to be organized. I don't have a label maker so I use the Avery address labels and cut them down to size. The label maker would be much quicker.

  15. Thank you for all of your wonderful videos! I know it takes a lot of time and effort and I really appreciate it. Your organizational tips have helped me a lot, my craft room looks much more tidy and it's easier to find what I'm looking for.

  16. Well this was an interesting and fun video.  I enjoyed seeing the system you have for storing your stamps and dies it is quite the system  You definitely are super organized and everything is so pristine and awesome looking.  Thanks for sharing.
    YOU sure do ROCK!!

    Joan Smith

  17. This is pure genius! I need so much help organizing my craft room. The only thing that is somewhat organized is my pattern paper.

  18. Very good information! I have been using these type of systems and love them! They do work very well! For my dies, I use the stamp and storage boxes and magnet cards which I love! I do store stamps with their matching dies in the pockets so as to not forget they have dies. Thank you for helping me organize!

  19. Jennifer, thanks for this great video, I enjoy getting organized but seem not to stay organized, so your tips are greatly appreciated. Keep them coming!

  20. I am in the process of organizing all my stamps. how do you organize all your small stamps? mine are now in baseball card sleeves in notebooks. Thanks for all the time you take to do these videos.

  21. Jennifer, you're killing me with all these organizational tips.  I had no idea I was so disorganized as an organized person.  I have been putting your ideas in place and I have stopped creating to get it all done.  That is the type A personality!  Will be wonderful to finish up and start creating again.  Great ideas and tips.  Thanks.

  22. Hi Jennifer!  I SO love organizational stuff!  Last year when I first saw your videos on organizing your stamps/dies/etc I took the plunge and re-organized EVERYTHING in my studio and I have been SO happy with it!  Best thing I ever did!  I a question though.  Do you ever have problems getting your labels to stay stuck to your dividers/envelopes?  I find that some of mine peel up on the edges and that is really irritating after all my effort tidying things away.

  23. Thank you for taking the time to put all that information together for us! This is really helpful! Don't know if it would benefit you but thought I would share with you; I bought magnetic vent covers from Menards (a home improvement store..also where my husband works) and cut them to fit cd cases for my dies. I love that they don't move. When I create, I make a mess and I am less likely to loose any small detail die. Since you shared ideas
    thought i would share something with you!

  24. Bless you, Jennifer, for sharing with all of us. All your hard work has saved us from trying to "reinvent the wheel!" and spending so much money and time that might not prove useful! Thanks so very much.

  25. Thanks once again for another great organization idea! I use many of your systems and they work wonderfully, thanks for sharing with us.

  26. Jennifer, I am in love with your storage ideas they have helped me immensely with my organization. I can't seem to get enough of them. I have watched them over and over again.  I appreciate all of the time and effort you have put into sharing your systems with us.

  27. I love all of your organization videos as well as demonstrations and product reviews! Thank you for the information and tips!

  28. Hi Jennifer I don't know how this is going to sound maybe like omg lol but I've never been good with math and as incredible as this is going to sound but I was wondering if you can make a video on how to read measurement. For example on one of your cards it says 5 15/16"x8" I wouldn't know how to cut the 15/16 I know the simple stuff if you know what I mean I would like to know what the little notches mean on a grid ruler or scoring board omg I feel so stupid 😁

  29. I use the find it brand of tins to store stuff. Well one of the $3-$5 ones from Walmart. Going to get the $10-$12 dollar one when I get the chance. Sure you can't organize them the same way but it you plan on traveling ( or moving eventually like I do someday ) they are pretty good.

  30. I love the way you organize everything. I have taken lots of ideas for my craft room. However i have always had a question. you should have tons of stamps sets and die sets, even if they are organized. How do you remember all the different things you have?.. in example.. if you want to create a card with a dog…. do you have any index… any journal or something where you can quickly check all the different stamps you have related to dogs?

  31. What great timing, I'm reorganizing my stamp room, the label maker sounds like
    such a time saver.  Can't wait to get started.    Dot Tucker

  32. Awesome video Jennifer! I can see how you would have to be super organized especially since your are always receiving product to try out & demonstrate and it's your job!!! I have this picture of you receiving new product every day of the week from the companies you create for!!  I definitely couldn't keep up with that.  Anyway…for someone like me that buys many manufacturers product..what would you suggest?? I currently try to keep my stamps in order of holiday or season,.  And my dies are in Art Bins but really don't have any order!  Help?

  33. I would definitely recommend this system. I implemented it last year and I use my stamps a lot more now because i am not distracted by the packaging. If i have dies that coordinate with stamps i put the thinlets in the back of the envelope so i have them altogether. Its so much clearer xx

  34. As always Jennifer you are such an inspiration. Your videos are always so clear and concise and your voice very relaxing for us (you may not feel that way but you definitely sound that way!!). I like keeping things tidy as well but have kept switching my organization to find exactly what works for me. The storage pockets are absolutely super and perfect for my needs. 1 Question: Do you still have any wood-mounted background stamps? If so, do you leave them on the wood or have you removed the wood entirely? Thanks for sharing such wonderful and innovative videos!!

  35. I love this organization system I have struggled to organize my stamps. You are a life saver. What size do you cut the dividers?

  36. Perfect timing on your organization video! this is exactly the type of organizing i'm looking for. Im just getting started in the paper craft world and don't want my dies/embossing folders/stamps getting out of hand as I start to make my collections. I can not function very well in a untidy craft room lol. 
    Thanks so much for putting this great video together and sharing the products you used. I will be following suit!

  37. Jennifer, do you show a layout for cutting the folders into dividers somewhere in a video? I just received 26 folders but want to cut them as economically as possible. I LOVE your organization hints and have started applying several of your ideas. You are absolutely right when you say that your creativity and productivity increase with your organization. Thanks for the inspiration.

  38. Jennifer, thank you so very much for sharing your organizational ideas, systems, tips, tricks, supplies and resources. You are my go-to-guru for everything related to storage, organization, card creation and classes. I know it takes a LOT of time and effort to make and share the videos and blog posts. I really don't know how you do it with your busy family – from toddlers to college students + a busy husband (lucky you, I understand he does most of the cooking! and lucky him – he has YOU!). I do appreciate the effort it takes and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  39. I love this system so much!! I have tried sooooo many things but your way is much better and I feel so organized! Thank you so much for the hard work that you put into these videos to help us! I have a silly question…what do you use to cut up the folders for the dividers?? I am not the straightest cutter with the scissors! LOL Thank you again! Hugs!

  40. Hi Jennifer. I love your ALL of your ideas. I have one question about your video. When you take your cardstock to Kinkos, do you "pencil" all of the sheets of cardstock you want cut? Or…Do you pencil a master and they cut all of your cards to that size? Also, do you bring in your own cardstock?

  41. What are you using to cut the folders up to make dividers? I got a ton of those folders for ten cents when our office max closed, but I'm unsure of how to cut them! Did you just use your paper cutter?

  42. Thank you so much for doing these organization videos. I'm really glad you such a "nut" about organization because I love to be organized myself. When I look at everything that is organized so neatly, it just makes me happy! I am sure you understand, lol.

  43. Just recently found you and love your videos. They are so inspirational and helpful. I have a question for you. I have the same label maker that you have and I can get it to do two line labels but it is really small. What are all your settings on the label maker when you make two line labels?

  44. yes I Love your tips on organization. Now what happens when you actually insert all of your dies and stamps, it will get bulky, You are going to need a larger container to store them all….. I am going to use your tip. My stamps and dies are all in one drawer, they are organize to a point. It's just when I need either one I have to pull out that drawer and search. So your tip is helpful. Thank you…..

  45. Just a thought for the stencil pockets – since they're white, couldn't you use colored cardstock to make the stencil stand out? Maybe it's easy to see the stencil "in person" but a little difficult on the video. Overall, your systems are outstanding!!! ❤️

  46. hi Jennifer love all your tips. what I have been doing is using recloseable bags that I get in large quantities from bags unlimited in the sizes I need. thanks cheryl

  47. Jennifer, as a new Crafter, I'm running with your ideas. Do you do the same type of organizing with the embossing folders? I can't seem to find a video for that.

  48. what do you do about the original packaging? i always hate to throw out that stuff and information.
    also what about the mounted stamps?

  49. I have watched this before but was just wondering how you know what stamps you have?  Do you have a list of everything.  Just wondering.

  50. This all looks great but I have absolutely no bloomin idea what you are talking about lol .
    newbie to scraping

  51. Hello Jennifer I am organizing all my stamps went to go try and find those cd sleeve they no longer sale so I was wondering how thick are theses if the clear bags are to thin?

  52. Hello Jennifer. I love your storage idea. Thank you so much for sharing. I discovered that Michaels sell the white inserts already cut. The recollections brand 5.5 x 7.5 and you get 100 in a pack. The pack is $7.99 but with a 50% off coupon, you can get 100 precut sheets for $4. Tfs. Marcia

  53. Jennifer, can you tell me if those dividers are the kind you buy with the school supplies or are they stiffer or a harder plastic? Thank you

  54. love how you take the time to help us ! I am overwhelmed but just got my magnets from stamp and storage so guess I will start there! love watching you !!!! you inspire me 🌠

  55. Jennifer, I know this may seem like a silly request, but… I have the plastic folders you have suggested for dividers, however, I would really appreciate it if you might find time in one of your upcoming video's to show us all how you cut those folders up to create the dividers. I'm sure I can probably figure it out, but before I destroy the folders doing so, it would sure be nice to see you do it – pretty please (she smiles).

  56. why not cut off the happy birthday, making it smaller and 2 pieces, but put all items in same folder???

  57. The organization is awesome, but what I want to know is: how do you find the stamp or die you need? Lets say you need a heart stamp. Do you look through every single stamp set until you find what you want or do you have another way? I am sure you have MANY more stamps and dies than I have, yet it takes forever to find exactly what I need by looking through each one. Especially since you may use a picture from one set and the wording from another.Lets say you keep your hearts in one place and your flowers in another, what if your stamp has both?

  58. Jennifer, great work! I especially appreciate the detailed info. thank you for all the time & energy you put into this!

  59. Jennifer, I need help! I’m ordering over a hundred plus stamps and tons of dies with Ali express, Amazon and so forth! I’m trying to keep up with writing down what I’m ordering, but how do u keep track of all of ur supplies??? Help!! Thanks liz…ur newest fan!😊💗

  60. Thank you Jennifer for all your fantastic videos. You inspire me and are my favorite addiction(buying). Wishing you and your family a wonderful 2018'

  61. Hi Jennifer! I was thinking maybe a piece of inexpensive colored card stock behind the stencil so that we can see the stencil design easier? Just a thought. Thank you for your EXTREMELY helpful organization techniques. They make all the difference!!

  62. Do you cut yr stamps? If yes, can you please do a video up on that. How u devide them into themes and where you get the plastic back protection from and so forth.

    I just found yr channel 💛 so if you have done a video like that, kindly direct me 😃thanks!👍

  63. You are so clever Jennifer, you have no idea how much you inspire me. I’m new to card making and I’m learning so much when I watch your video’s. I admire your professionalism you add to your cards. I hope one day my cards look as gorgeous as yours. Again thank you for sharing your talent. I’m off to make a storage box,wish me luck. Have you thought about making card kits and selling them as I’m often looking for them. I would love to purchase them from you….

  64. Nice video. I like to use plastic kitchen cutting mats from the dollar store (Dollar tree – only $1 per package of 2). They come in clear and colors. I use them for several different applications. I originally got them for making firm bottoms and sides for my satchel purse collection. I hate floppy satchels. Also, used as DIY dashboards in my planners & BuJos. Also as DIY 6" ruler for pocket in back of planner. You could try these cutting mats as cheap dividers.

  65. Thank you. Your suggestion is really helpful for me to save space in my craft room. I have my stamps and dies in hard DVD cases that is taking up a lot of room on my shelves. I ran out and before I bought more dvd cases I saw your video. Guess what?? I am going to re-do my storage with the plastic envelopes. Instead of having to have to search through all my cases even though the names are on the side I still have to search. And sometimes I just give up and grab something that I have in front of me. I think your storage solution will be the last time that I change my system up. Every time I get more die and stamps means more storage space. The envelopes will save a lot of room thank you so much.

  66. Hello, I don't even know if you check posts from this long ago. But if you do….I know you gave dimensions of all the dividers you made. Is it possible to have templates of each size? Do you have printable templates of each size divider? Thank you for your time. Kathleen

  67. Amazing organization. I have a small cubby where i do my crafting, so I am always looking for organization ideas to store my craft supplies. xxx

  68. I so wish I had known about this method way back when I started my "collection". But, that was years ago…and way before I ever heard of you. But,, thanks for providing this type of info to your fans.

  69. Years ago I bought a guillotine paper cutter that can cut up to 2" of paper at a time, and it was so worth it. I think I paid about $120 for it and now you can get them for under $100. I've even used it to cut off the spines of 'perfect' bound books so that I could ring-bind or coil-bind them instead.

  70. Jennifer, I can't thank you enough for this video! I ordered the Avery Elle pockets along with the magnetic sheets & now just need to make the dividers. I have a small collection of dies because I'm very new to die cutting. I was using the Sizzix envelopes with magnetic sheets but I was very surprised how much room they take. In the same space I had 7 Sizzix envelopes, I managed to get 15 Avery Elle pockets – I'm thrilled that it's all organized now. Thank you for being thorough in your videos, you're a joy to watch & listen to!
