Organization is such a key component of design and card-making as a whole. For me, if I do not have my products in an organized, easy-to-find place, I cannot produce my best work. Getting new products and finding a good way to display them for visual appeal and function is an integral part of the creative process. Today, I will talk about my Stampin’ Up! Dies.
I will be discussing Organization all week and helping you as best I can to see how I store things in my Stamping Studio. I will put Amazon links for the things I use to hold my products in case you are interested in finding them easily. Don’t forget to come back each day this week to see more!
Today I will focus on Die storage. I love Dies but especially Shape Dies! The circles, ovals, squares, and banner dies are my favorites. I think I use dies the most of any tool for my cards.
Here is a quick video about how I add magnetic sheets to brand-new dies that I purchase. They then go into my container. I add a divider to label them so I can find them and use them in my daily stamping.
But I do have to say, there is nothing like die-cutting a floral image out of a pretty colored cardstock or cutting a cuddly koala out of a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP).
Die-cutting is essential to stamping and so my Dies must be organized. Let me know in the comments how you organize your dies.
I am attaching a copy of my YouTube live stream that took place on Tuesday, April 12, 2023. It shows all of my organizers. I will be sharing them with you one at a time in these blog posts. I hope you will join me next week for another live stream on YouTube. They happen every Tuesday night at 8 pm EST on my YouTube Channel.
I would like to share with you the products used to organize the cardstock portion of my Stamping Studio.

Remember, every order made from my online store receives my June CUSTOMER APPRECIATION CARD. If your order is over $50, you’ll get the card plus my June Tutorial Bundle, a pdf document with 40+ projects to inspire you! I email it out to those who earn it at the beginning of the following month. It is my way to thank you for supporting my small business. In turn, it gives you ideas for projects to make with the supplies you purchased from me.
Thank you for supporting my small business and ordering from me.
Use the Hostess Code.
June’s Hostess Code is WG6EUP9D. Use it for orders under $150.00.
Using that helps me bring you videos every week and helps provide the blog posts and gifts of appreciation. Thank you again for your support!

In the Month of June, I will be having a CARD Fiesta Class on the 17th from 12 noon to 3 pm at a local Mexican Restaurant. Come socialize with other stampers, eat Mexican food, and stamp some cards. There will be a variety of cards for you to make each session. Feel free to invite a friend. For details to attend, contact me. I would love to connect with you there.
This year I also instituted a Kit-Together on the first Friday of the month at 7 pm EST. This month’s gathering will be on the 2nd of June and July’s will be on the 7th. Contact me if you would like to attend. Bring a Kit to work on. Feel free also to bring a friend. You can order one from my online store search under Kit Collection, or I have a few kits on hand that you can get cash and carry. I hope you will attend.
Also, I will have our Paper Pumpkin Procrastinators Group meet on the last Friday of the month also at 7 pm EST. This month’s gathering is on the 30th of June and July’s will be on the 28th. That is my way of ensuring that all my subscribers get their kits done every month.
In summary, I have one YouTube Live Stream per week this year on Tuesdays, but I will have plenty of video content for you on my YouTube channel to stream at your leisure so keep going there for more video instruction.
As always, thank you for visiting me 🙂
See you tomorrow for more fun content!
