Prickley Pear Monday-Die Storage Share

Hello friends! Today, I want to share with you my die storage system for my Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Coordinating Dies. It's nothing fancy, totally homemade, very inexpensive, and I love that I was able to customize it to my liking. I took some plain chipboard, covered it with Basic Grey Curio papers, bound it with my Cinch, and added some magnets. The magnets are strong enough to hold the dies on without them falling off and the dies are easy to remove when I need to use them.

Here is the front cover. I used trims I purchased from Hobby Lobby. The bloomer trim was dyed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays. I cut the label from the packaging that comes with the dies and attached it to a Scalloped Circle die cut.

Here is a little closeup:

Here is a peek at the inside:

I love this storage system! My dies are easily accessible, all in one place, and this book takes up minimal space. I hope I have inspired you to create your own die storage system or come up with a good way to store your own dies.

Thanks for stopping by!

Such an Honor and Thank You!

I am very excited to share that I have been given an award by two amazing ladies, Melissa at Peace, Love, Joy, and Paper, and Tanya at Generation Promise. Thank you very much, ladies! It is such an honor and I am absolutely thrilled that you thought of me!

Liebster is German and means 'dearest' or 'beloved' but it can also mean 'favorite'.

The idea of the Liebster award is to bring attention to blogs with less than 200 followers. So, in the spirit of good fun I am passing this award on to five other bloggers.

Please stop by and visit them!

The Rules are:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your five picks for the award and let them know.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogshare-other bloggers.
5. Finally and the best rule of all . . . . have fun and spread the love!

Here are the 5 blogs that I would like to share with you:
Each of these ladies inspires me every single day! Please be sure to stop by their blogs and leave some love, as I'm sure that you will love their work as much as I do!
