Welcome to Week #42 of my 52 Paper Crafting Organization Tips and StampinBuds Studio tour. Did you miss last week’s topic? I talked about Organizing by Color! Be sure to check it out.
This week’s topic shows you a great way to organize your most used Die Cuts!
Week 42: Thin Cuts Organization
First off, what is a Thin Cut?
It’s basically the Close To My Heart version of a metal shape known as a die cut which is used in Paper Crafting for cutting shapes.
The act of die cutting refers to a process in which you use a Machine (shown left) to mass-produce cut-out shapes. You can also use Embossing Folders in this machine. It’s a great tool for all Paper Crafter’s to have in their craft space. But I digress… because the actual thing I want to talk to you about today is how I store my most used Thin Cuts.
As a CTMH Maker, I like to keep current product at my fingertips. So when it comes to my ‘stand-alone’ Thin Cuts, meaning the ones that aren’t connected to a current Stamp Set, I like to store them in a 6 x 8 Album with Page Protectors, as highlighted below…
- 6 x 8 Albums – Be sure to check out the different colors!
- 6 x 8 Page Protectors – Also available w/Pockets – 2 or 4
I will also store my small Dry Embossing Folders this way, as well.
The best part about storing items like these in a small album is that they can literally sit nice and organized on a shelf! I love it when my craft area lookstidy… even though that doesn’t happen very often. 😉
