Happy WOYWW check out the rest of the desks over at Julia's and see what everyone else is creating, there is so much to see.
I'm still on the floor and my hunk of a cat loves it as you can see from the pictures below he loves to try and take over my little cutting place as you can see if your not petting him he gets right in the way lol I don't really have much going on I've been super busy helping out at work as a favor just for the next week so then I'll go back to my regular hours can't wait for that.  So what on my desk is just my new die book I made it's not very big but it's perfect for me and it holds all that I have at the moment. I love Kraft paper and thought how I couldn't part with it and how the best way to enjoy it so I made up my little book it's not the most fancy but it's exactly what I need and I wanted it left plain seeing this is something I plan on grabbing alot to use and now it's just so handy to flip thru.
It's bound with Ribbon and hand made cardboard spacers to keep it sitting flat
I even scored the cover so it would bend properly.
Magnets have been Glued front and back of all the inside pages plus I can always
add more in just by uniting the ribbon and add more
the Magnet I got from my dollar store it was a locker magnet
that I cut into four 4.5 by 6 inch sheets didn't even cut the paper
just attached and kept going

I also have some stash for sale take a peek it's at the top of my blog
thanks for looking
hugs Nikki


  1. Now that is a labour of love and such a great idea using magnets.

  2. Hullo there Nikki,
    At last able to WOYWW again …Some lovely work going on here!

    Loving puss and agree with yawn! neat way to sore your dies :D

    Thanks so much for sharing ~ happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz. x #21

  3. Desk - lovely... best bit is that it looks as though your gorgeous 'hunk of a cat' is laughing at something :) He's so sweet!
    Great idea for the dies. I bought a pack of magnetic shims to slip into a binder to store mine - absolute bargain at just £1.99 for a pack of 6 - trouble is, I can't remember where I bought them! lol
    Have a wonderful WOYWW!
    Best wishes from Bubbles

  4. All neatly organised the cutting dies & hopefully should make it easy to see what you've got . jill #22

  5. Your kitty cat looks very interested in what's going onwith your crafty goodies! Great idea for the dies...I just bought some magnetic sheets to use for mine...not sure exactly how I will put them to use. Not taking part in WOYWW just having a look.
    Hugs, Renee

    Happy WOYWW hope you have a great day

  10. Brilliant Nikki - the spacers is genius. I have a similar system but the magnet is on card and they are standing in a magazine file...but I seem to have less than you...hmmmm....!

  11. I have all my dies on magnets too but my book would resemble war and peace if I did this, maybe I will share next week :)Love the hunk of cat.
    Thanks for sharing Tracy#72

  13. Your so smart! What a great idea. Mine are still in their packaging and taking up waaaay to much space!

  14. Your die storage is just brilliant - thanks for sharing that. happy WOYWW Gill x #104

  15. Your die storage is brilliant, will now be on the lookout for some magnetic sheets.

  16. Great idea! Love your collection of dies (drool). Love that pretty kitty too!

  17. Thanks for your visit, OMG the Kitty pic made me chuckle.. You can't beat a fuzzy helper lol
    Great die book, it's so nice having them organised isn't it!

  18. Lovely book for storing your dies! And the kitty's opinion is priceless. Happy WOYWW! Nan #1

  19. Great idea for storing dies. The kitty looks bored. :-) April #151

  20. My dies are in the original packaging - I found a stash of magnetic business card backers in my drawers while organizing and they work perfectly for this. But now you've tempted me to do something more formal. I love things stored in books as the flipping thru is so much easier. Maybe one day :)

    Happy WOYWW


  21. Ooo I love your die book, like how you put the spacers in to keep it flat. I have just organised all my dies onto magnetic sheets then put them into the thin plastic cd wallets and store them in a cut down lever arch file. Love your kittie too he's a beauty.
    Happy art making
    Hugs Lottie *160
