This case is magnificent. I used to just place my Spellbinders and other dies in a box, because they would fall all over the place. Then I could not see what dies I had, and I would reorder the die set. This case is so easy to use, and my dies are right there. Another thing I did not like about just leaving my dies in the original package, was that when I went to get out a die, the sticky tape was so sticky, that it was hard not to bend a die. This magnetic board is easy to get them without bending them.
These are nice sturdy cases for holding metallic dies from a variety of companies. I was using cd and dvd cases to hold individual sets. I have saved at least half the space previously used by organizing my dies by company and on the magnetic sheets by shape or type of die. I highly recommend this system.
This seemed like a great way to organize dies; however, the magnetic sheets are not strong enough to hold the dies. I had ordered other magnetic sheets from amazon, and they were the same way. Stampin' Up used to sell heavier magnetic sheets that were perfect for storing dies, but they no longer sell them. That's what this product needs. I wouldn't recommend it, it's truly a disappointment.
This product idea is good, that is about as good as it gets! the case is too small to be effective...because of the shape of the handle you cannot get very many die on a sheet...would have been better if magnetic on both sides....good idea just not cost effective and then I cannot even return the product since it has been opened!!! Not good!!!
This is a great idea but when put into practice not so good. Shape of magnetic sheet means you can't get some dies on the sheet. Main thing though is if the die you want is in the middle or bottom you have to take out all the other sheets first to get to it and even then some fall off. Might be better to make it a folder with clips and holes in the sheets so you can turn them over.
There are so few times in life that we come across a truly *genius* solution. For me, this is one of those times. This case (actually I now have two - one for seasonal, one for everyday dies) stores metal dies in the most convenient, helpful manner imaginable. I put them on the magnetic sheets by theme - floral, geometric shapes, nesting, birthday, words, etc., and I find what I'm looking for super-fast, without wasting time digging through folders or bins, or packaging and my dies are always in perfect condition. This purchase was money well spent!
This is perfect for my Spellbinder dies. It makes it so handy and I love being able to see all my dies at once. I used to keep my dies in their original packaging and it was just a mess as they kept falling out. I was so afraid they would get bent but with this case they lay perfectly flat. Awesome piece of storage!
