QuietfireDesign Die Cut Storage System

Hi all, thought I let you get a peak at the way I store my Quietfire Design/Elizabeth Craft Designs die cuts...

Whenever I'm not in a very creative mood, I'll take out my dies and cut from any scraps laying around or from one of my scrap bins. I then put them into my black binder shown above. They're inserted into ATC plastic protector sheets, labelled and ready to pull out and use on a project or to ink and heat emboss etc.

I love flipping through it as well. When I'm not sure of what sentiment to use that helps and seems to point me in the right direction BIG GRIN

I think they started a bet going as to how long I would last BIG GRIN.  Not bad - 8 days and that's only because I had to make my DT project and once I got started with that, I couldn't stop - Sheesh So I printed out these day lilies, and after coloring them decided to make a card...
