Magnetic Die Storage Book

Hello,
I would like to show you one of the gifts I made for Christmas for a crafting friend.
I knew she collects just as I many dies and I love these magnetic books. Of course mine are not decorated lol – I never seam to find time for that, but I did label all my books with bakers twine ribbon in the spine of the book and I used my Tea label dies as tags and sorted my Magnolia dies into groups that work for me as Winter, foliage, border and label/tags.

I was back and forth with the gift as far as decoration went if I should make it Christmas looking or more general. As you can see I think went more neutral but as I look at it right now it almost looks like a Valentines gift today lol.

As always most of the supplies I use are available at Sir Stampalot. I just noticed at the website a nice magnet storage solution I actually consider to purchase for my Spellbinder Nestabilitie collection made by Art Bin.
The cute image is by Saturated Canary but I think it’s a digi image and I cant recall the exact name.

All other supplies are as follows:
Design Paper: Magnolia Ink
Tulip, Magnolia ink red Kitchen Cloth , Magnolia ink green with dots
Dies: DooHickey large butterfly, DooHickey Tilda Tag, Memory box Tiffany Frame die
Stamp: Mangolia Postmark, script
Embellishments:
Bakers twine, red gingham, Stickles, Frantage shabby white, Prima Marketing wood Embellishments Birds and Owls, seam binding, flowers

This how the book looks on my friends desk with some of her Magnolia dies stored stored in it.

Thanks for looking

Hi Claudi,

Just saw your reaction on my Blog. I suppose with frame you mean the heart on my card ??
Have a look at this link:

In my Art Bin I have all Doohickeys, MemoryBox, MFT, Marianne Design etc.etc. dies. The Spellbinders ask a lot of space so maybe not the best solution (could only get 2 complete circle sets small and large on 1 sheet.

Ciao ciao, xx Irene
