MFT - Creative Chat time

MFT has come up with a new monthly feature and we think it's something you'll really enjoy. The My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Chat is a new monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative spaces and share valuable organizational methods, tools, and shopping strategies with you. You'll be able to peek into our creative spaces, ask questions, and share your own ideas in the MFT forum.  This month, we were asked the following questions:  

How do you store and organize your Die-namics?  
Any fun or helpful Die-namics purchasing strategies you'd like to share?  
How do you store extra Die-namics die-cuts? 

Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge and get ready to delve into the minds of our creative team!


I decided to create a little video for you to share about my system, but please know this is my first time to share about my crafting and my camera was not cooperating with me too good, so the sound might be low, so raise your volume...LOL.  I tried to clean up my little place for you, but normally I work in a tiny space on my big table...hehehe.  ENJOY!  :)


And since today it's not really about projects, I still wanted to share a cute little 8x8 layout I did using brand new Creative Imaginations papers and lots of pretty My Favorite Things Die-namics and stamps!  Oh....and that little girl is me...isn't she cute?


So, what did I use on this layout?

Inspired by Flowers - Flowers set #1


And the following Die-namics:



Well, that is it for today.  Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

What a sweet scrapbook page (gotta love those bangs - lol)! Eva, your video was GREAT and I loved seeing how you store your Die-namics! Seeing you and hearing your voice makes me feel like I've "met" you! :-)

Thanks for the video of your storage. You all have such great ideas! I haven't seen any duplicates yet! hehe I so laughed about working in a tiny space. I have 2 huge tables and usually I'm working in like a 12 x 12 space.

I had no idea there was such a thing as magnetic vent sheets. That is such a clever use for them! Very cute scrap page too! :)

Very compact storage system, Eva! And, yes, that little girls is TOTALLY cute!!

Megan said...

I love your video! I'm always too nervous to put myself on camera--you're so cool! It was great to see you again!

Tinkerbeth said...

The magnetic sheets are what my die system is missing! I use a box similar to yours, with chipboard dividers, but mine are all in the little plastic bags they came in! Thank you so much for sharing your system! I can see that using magnetic sheets will give my system the "ease of use" I've been looking for!

Tinkerbeth said...

PS! I love your layout! You were so cute then, and still look wonderful!!

Marisa Job said...

Great layout! I liked the video too, great way to store your dies. I bought a few more dies after your class. I hope you come back soon. Hugs!

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

OHHH! What a gorgeous LO--love your papers! I loved your video too! SUPER fun learning tips and tricks to storing dies/etc. LOVE this new feature!

ps....I ordered some MFT stamps (Pure Innocence--some of those--and the ROAR stamp (can't think of the name)). I CANNNNNNNOT wait! I am super excited:) I will let you know when I post some MFT creations:)

Bev Gerard said...

Okay dear ... that scrapped page is so CUTE! (Sometimes don't you want the "baby" back?!) hahaha

The die-namics storage?? Eva .. you're making me rethink my stuff! I haven't blogged about my dies, guess I should. I've recently blogged my studio ... but I so adore your "storage focus"!!

Feels like I just had a 1-way visit with you!

Katie said...
