Tilda Card & Nesties Storage

Happy Monday!! =)
Just a simple card I made using Tilda with Envelope and the Heart Blocks cuttlebug folder. I'm loving these colors together, although they look a little off in this photo. I added crystal effects to her ribbon around her waist and everything else is pretty self-explanatory...very simple card.
I'm very excited about the new Magnolia stamps in the store (there's a picture of some new items over on the DT blog). I'm especially excited about the stamp with Puppy and the swing so my sitting Tilda's have another place to sit :) There's also some new Basic Grey paper pads (6x6) so be sure to check those out as well! Kelly's thinking of ordering from another company in March, so I can't to see what's "in store" ;) Pun intended! LOL.
While we were in town last weekend, we stopped in Michaels and I bought these Magnetic sheets (8.5x11) to store my Nestability dies in. I punched holes in them so I could store in a binder. I actually have a different binder in mind that has lips all around it so if by chance they do fall off the sheets, they won't get lost! But, alas my dd took the piece out of it that has the 3 rings so I had to "borrow" this one.
I love this idea for Nesties storage because I can easily rearrange them. I've also seen where you can buy cd cases and put magnetic strips in them to hold the dies. I didn't price those out, but this seemed like it would work better (?) although one sheet isn't really strong enough I found out. I have to put two together to get them to hold well, so not really sure which is the better buy, money-wise? I bought 2 boxes of (3) each.

In case you're reading this by Feedblitz email, just wanna remind you enter my Birthday blog candy, if you haven't already!! There's 2 stamp sets up for grabs, one super CUTE and the other very elegant and beautiful, along with BG papers, ribbon, and stamped Magnolia images - Come check it out :)
So, lots of sweetness going on this week with Valentine's being so close. Do you have special plans? If you are one who's not "attached" I hope you make plans to go out with some girlfriends and have fun!! Wishing everyone a very *sweet* Valentines!! ♥

Beautiful card Kristine, love your colouring :0)
I only have 1 set of oval nesties at the moment so they are safetly stored in a cd case, although I do tend to lose them amongst my many cd cases of stamps lol
