Some time ago I made a storage book for my nestie dies. It was in an issue of Craft Stamper magazine and I thought it was a great idea and so easy to make with some card and magnetic paper sheets. I used Basic Grey papers (Infuse and others) to cover them.

Anyway, it's now so full that I can't actually get any more pages in it and I have dies all over the craft room so I've just made another one. The new one has all my Marianne D, Joycraft and Nellie Snellen dies in it and the old one now has all my nesties safely stored together. These are on my desk all the time and used constantly. So much better than keeping them in those horrible stiff plastic cases they come in.

Papers for this one are Basic Grey 'Urban Couture'. The stamp on the front of this one is from the Rescue Remedies set at Waltzingmouse Stamps (another Craft Stamper discovery). Really, that magazine costs me a fortune, lol. These stamps are 'nestie friendly' which means that when you've stamped it out, it will fit perfectly inside one of the nestie frames. A bit of distress ink around the edges and it's all you need.

I got to do this....!!!!!!
I to am using the plastic cases...and thinking there has to be a better way.... this looks like the ticket to me!
If you don't mind sharing a little more about the books. What did you use for the pages to put the magnetic paper to?? Some kind of pressed board or cardboard?
