New Magpie Storage System


My stamping friend Beckie of Lilac Lemon Designs sent me a link for the Magpie Nesting Storage System, which I wanted to use some of my heavy punches and a selection of ink pads.

I purchased these early in the week from Crafts U Love and received them a couple of days later. I'm thrilled with the units, which are a heavy-duty wood, which should last forever and withstand lots of crafting abuse!

These (grainy, sorry) photos show my workspace. I use some wooden craft crates and the new Magpie storage system to hold a number of my tools for quick access. I also have a bookshelf in back of me that holds other items, such as ribbons, die cutting machines and dies, stamps, embellishments, and lots of other products. It's too messy to photograph right now!


The Magpie Nesting Storage System comes with handy nesting tins that are suppose to hold 2x2 inch Quickutz dies. However, as you can see, I've adapted the cubbyholes for other purposes. I'll use my nesting tins to store embellishments.
