Framelit & Embossing Folder Storage – VIDEO

I LOVE Framelits!  I hate losing them.  And I lose them because I haven’t ever figured out a good way to store them.

Here I come to save the day!  While surfing Pinterest the other day, I came across a BRILLIANT idea for storing my Framelits and Embossing Folders.

Framelit Storage - www.SimpleSimpleStamping.com - Magnetic vent covers from the home improvement store!  Cheap and easy!    Embossing Folder Storage - www.SimpleSimpleStamping.com

I hope enjoy today’s video tip!

I found these magnetic vent covers at my local home improvement store.  Just look for the vent section (mine were in plumbing) and you will see these… or like me, you will miss seeing them… twice.  I had to find an employee who pointed them out to me and I felt like an idiot.  They were RIGHT in front of me.  Don’t you hate that?  So, REALLY look… they are there!   These magnet sheets are MUCH more expensive in the craft stores so the home improvement store is the way to go.

    Connie, I’ve also cut a magnetic sheet down, actually this was one of those magnetic calendars I got in the mail, anyway I cut it to fit the clear stamp storage boxes for my framelits. I dont’ have too many and can put a couple in each storage box. I love your idea also. Thanks Sue

  2. I’ve been using these vent covers for some time now (thanks to my friend Opal). I cut mine down to fit in the clear envelopes that SU sends our framelits in. I do this because I have a great container that I like to store my framelits in……but I LOVE the idea of storing them in an album. BRILLANT girlfriend! Thanks for sharing this tip with us.

    WOW!! That is one amazing tip Connie, thank you so much, I’m going to the Home Depot to get me some of this magnetic sheets ASAP, heck!! it beats my system of little Zip Lock baggies!!

    • Connie says:

      Oh Maria, those ziplock baggies were a mess for me too. I was always worried I would bend them too. This keeps them nice and flat. 🙂

  4. Jackie says:

    Connie, I also use the magnet sheets, I mount the ones that match the stamp
    Sets right into the stamp case so I have them handy when I use both at the same time. Thanks for the tip for finding them for less at the big box stores.

  5. Bonjour
    très très bonne idée merci pour ce partage bise raymonde

    Hang on a sec while I revel in the Mighty Mouse reference. Ok, good. Great tip for Framelit storage! I have literally run out of space with every other storage solution I have tried! The album should hold me for a while.

  7. Fantastic tip Connie, hope they sell magnetic vent sheets in the UK, off to Homebase now to find out. Mine are in a terrible muddle at the moment.

  8. Barb says:

    Thank you for that GREAT tip. I checked out the magnet sheets in the craft areas and they were like $8 for one or two sheets so I have been using old business type refrigerator magnets you get in the mail. Some work OK but not all. I have found storing mine in recycled CD jewel cases and a recycled large decorative hinged tin to store them in works for me right now but then again I am always reorganizing and changing things to see what else may work better. Thanks again for sharing your info.

    This idea rocketed me right to Lowe’s! and usually I am NOT that impulsive!! I had an album I would have never used, and holds 5 packs of the magnets, cut in half. My dies are now organized, thanks to you! Love all your ideas and stuff! Flashcards are brilliant too!

  10. Molly says:

    Thanks for the great tip, Connie! I need to get to Lowe’s anyway for some clothes washer hose-screen-thingies and will be sure to swing by the vent aisle for these too. BTW…I have another die question for you. What can be done when they start to bow or warp a little in the middle from use? Must be from the cutting plate that bit the big one recently (even though I regularly flipped and rotated to keep it as straight as possible). The dies still cut well but I am concerned about them not working well over time. Do you have a solution?

    Thank you!
    Molly

    • Connie says:

      Hmmm, I don’t know Molly. I would probably try to give it a little bend the other way but as long as it’s cutting, you should be fine. Those little framelits seem thin but they are REALLY tough.

  11. Tina says:

    Hi there,
    I use this magnetic sticky tape, so I can store the framelits that go with a certain stamp set directly inside the very same box.
    But I never thought to look for those sheets in those stores. Thanks for that idea – will definitely do that!

    • Connie says:

      Tina, I tried those strips too but I couldn’t get my Framelits to stay put. So frustrating. The full sheets were amazing and super cheap too!

  12. Gay Ferland says:

    Such a great idea to have the embossing folders and framelets in one place!!! I love this idea!!! I figure I will need at least 10 albums!!!! My true addictions!!! Lol!
    Thanks!

  13. Yvonne says:

    Went to Lowes todY and I was able to show the employee where the sheets could be found! Love this idea! If the framelets match a stamp set I put them in the case, but the album is a fantastic idea!

  14. Monique says:

    What did you stick the magnetic sheet to? They seem flimsy. Thanks, I love the idea!!

    • Connie says:

      Nothing. They aren’t super stiff but they are easy to work with. I did put some cardstock cut to 8×8 inside the page protector but mainly as a buffer.
