For a while now I have toyed with finding a different system for storing my dies - which have been increasing at quite a rate.
I have 2 of Tonic's system - the large folders. But I find them cumbersome & quite heavy to pick up. Also they are too tall for my bookcases so I have had to store them laying flat, which isn't good for the dies when 2 are placed on top of each other. I also have 2 other folder systems.
I finally decided to try Stamps Away (Clever Cuts) MDF storage unit which is basically an open sided box with shelves that fit inside on runners. Each shelf holds a magnetic mat (after you have put it all together) & they can be pulled out individually for easy access. I purchased 2 & they arrived last week. On Friday I unpacked all the pieces & checked it was all there & that the pieces went together OK. Then on Saturday I asked for Bob's help as I realised I wouldn't be able to support a piece whilst trying to glue another piece in place. So, bless him he did - well, he didn't actually - 'cos he put them together for me without any help from me.
Today I have glued the magnetic sheets on to the shelves of one unit & will do the other one later. Then over the next couple of days I will transfer my dies to their new home. I am sure I will need to purchase another one though.
I haven't painted or decorated the units mainly because they sit on my wooden bookshelf & you wouldn't see any decoration. But who knows I might decide to cover the sides & top with some of this "small?" amount of decorative paper I have, some time later.
Here is what they look like on the Stamps Away web site;
That's me for this visit.
'Bye for now.
