Spellbinders Dies -Huge Haul and Extras For SALE -ALL SOLD

When this month began (which is my birthday month) I didn't own any spellbinder dies and now that March is just about over I now have a huge collection. My husband really spoiled me with craft supplies for my birthday!
I started looking to purchase spellbinder dies because as much as I love my cricut machine, it does not cut perfectly scalloped circles or scalloped hearts basically scallop shapes, I prefer my scallops to be crisp clean and even and now I'll get that with these dies.

JoAnn's and Micheal's craft stores have had fantastic sells on these dies this month so I took advantage of the sells. Most of the dies I were purchased individually, and some were the four packs.  I discovered that when I bought the 4 packs that I ended up with a few duplicates, I don't need duplicates... anyone need spellbinder dies at a GREAT price?  I have a few.

I'm selling each package for $13 plus shipping. I accept PayPal only, first to pay will receive the die sets.
Here is a list of what I have available... images below.

-Classic Diamonds: 7 die set SOLD
-Stars Five: 5 die set SOLD

Copic Marker Organizer -Foam Core Board

Have you every made an organizer out of foam core board? I can now say that I have, and I have an ink pad organizer / storage in the works ;)

I've been searching for a Copic orgainzer for my markers and came across this organizer on several peoples blog, it's called the Copic Marker Cubbie.
I found out who made them and contacted the lady, but her and her husband longer sell them, it's a shame because it would of course be more sturdy then foam board organizer.  So decide to go on the hunt for other  inexpensive Copic marker organizers and in my search came across this blog "Syzygy of Me". Karen designed what looks like the exact same copic organizer, she has great instructions along with photos which was great for me. Karen also made a fabulous ink pad storage for her Stampin Up inks.
Karen's copic storage instructions -HERE
Karen's Stampin Up ink pad foam core storage instructions -HERE.

Here are the two organizers that I made, and they definitely are not perfect (I know where my mistakes are) but I'm very happy with how they turned out and they look rather nice on my table.  My marker selection is quite small, but slowly growing. 
Now I'm working on an ink pad storage for my favorite ink pads, Tim Holtz distress inks and Jenny Bowlin inks.

I also got to wondering what other storage organizers people have made using foam core board and look what I found...  (click on the photo to be taken to the blog where I found it).


So what have you seen or made with foam core board?
