Hope y’all had an awesome week! Welcome to week 12 of the 52 Weeks to an Organized Workspace challenge. This week, we’re organizing our die cuts. Who here has a few too many die cuts? I definitely do. And once upon a time, those die cuts were scattered all over my creative space. Times change, though. And these days, they’re organized neatly into just a few 4×6 Iris photo cases.
Here’s what once upon a time looked like. My die cuts were amidst a pile of mayhem that I referred to as ephemera. Then one day, I decided I’d had enough and something had to change, so I went through each and every piece of paper in these piles and organized the entirety of it.
After a trip to Michael’s and what felt like forever, I had several Iris cases organized with various things and one of those things was die cuts. I guess I don’t really have all that many after all, do I? It certainly seemed like there were a lot more than that. Lol…
If you’re curious what my ephemera looked like after the fact, you can check it out here. Here’s where we stand with die cuts, though.
One thing to keep in mind is that if I have die cuts that are part of a kit or collection, they’re stored in their original packing with that particular kit or collection. That’s why there are so few miscellaneous ones. If you’re curious how I organize my kits & collections, you can check those out here. I have one 4×6 Iris photo case for each of the following categories – tickets, transparencies, tags, and envelopes.
Do some brainstorming and take some time to think about how you’re going to organize your die cuts and then get to it. Don’t forget to share before and after pictures.
If you’re struggling, take a look at these amazing ideas. Hopefully, you can find something that inspires you.
