Thinlits and Framelits Storage Solution

We have a lot of people and stuff in a small space.  So being creative in organizing is key in our home.  In my life, everything has it's place and there is a place for everything.  The thinlits and  framelits, we sell, are some of my most favorite paper-crafting tools!  When I misplace any part of these collections it's a nightmare... so having a way to hold the collections together is so helpful in being organized.  See this simple trick to holding it all together (well, at least my framelits - lol).
See how easy it is to 'hold it all together' in an attempt to know where all your pieces are.  You'll need to take your Framelits and Thinlits (used with our Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine).  Isn't it always the case that you want the one item you've misplaced - it's the story of my life.
The Framelits and Thinlits collections are amazing tools!!  They take my hand-crafted cards to the next WOW level!
I don't care for the sticky strip that holds the collections together.  Taking a simple addition of magnetic strips or cards you can have a reusable surface and it won't grab any lint!  (The lint of life can be kind of gross.)
Purchased at my local office-supply store, these business card magnetic sheets and magnetic strips are wonderful!  They are usually adhesive on one side and magnetic on the other.
Simply apply them to each collection of framelits and thinlits you own... I do this, usually, the first time I open them up (every deliver is like Christmas and I can't wait).
Once the magnetic strips are in place your collections will hold on in their place and stay there!  See how you can turn it upside down - they remain in place.  I love the Magnetic Platform for this very reason - it makes using the Framelits and Thinlits so much easier in the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine!
Pop the collection into the plastic sleeve it comes in and you can prevent them from falling out and getting lost when you use them. 
Stampin' Up! has these great Die Storage Boxes!  With three sizes they store all of my Embossing Folders, Framelits, Thinlits, Bigz Dies and more!  I have them perfectly lined up and they help me to keep organized.

Keeping together your collections is a key in using your paper-crafting tools.  The Thinlits and Framelits are some of my favorite card making tools to use in my Big Shot Die-Cutting and Embossing Machines.  So taking one simple addition allows for my collections to stick together.  No matter the crafting space you may or may-not have... these simple tricks can make keeping them all together easy.  Create stunning paper-crafts, quilting, and card-making items with these amazing tools - and this will help you to find them when you need them (I've learned the 'hard' way to keep my collections together).

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
