    I’m not a card maker,but loving this bag to store my sets of stamps/dies in it!


    I store my extra finished cards and they are easily accessible.

    This bag is he answer to one of my biggest dilemmas–storing die and stamp sets that work together. I’m using it for my Heartfelt Collections sets by storing the dies on the die storage cards, and keeping the stamps on their original packaging sheets, which I cut down just a bit so they fit in the bag.

    I originally purchased the Karen bag for finished card storage. Before I had even received the shipment I had decided I needed to use it for storing dies, and purchase another for cards (which I did). Now I have a third because I found that my Spectrum Noir Brush Pens stand up nicely in the Karen bag and it holds and entire set PERFECTLY! As if it was made for it! I love the Debra bags for smaller sets of pens and markers, but I really wanted to have all my Spectrum Noir together in one container and this is it. Couldn’t ask for a more perfect fit!

    I have four Karen bags. Two I use for my Stamps of Life which comes with stamps and the dies to cut them out. Three refill packs fill the bag. The other two are for my stamps and dies from LaLaLand. They do not take up much room and the organization of stamps and dies are awesome. I love keeping what goes together – together! Now I am back for more and may try using a couple of them to store my cards in. We will see. This is a great size bag and there are countless uses for it.

    I bought three of these for embossing folder storage, not card making, and they work wonderfully! I scrapbook at home and away from home and needed mobile, safe storage. These work fantastic! I have them organized alphabetically and also numbered so that they are easy to find. The case is sturdy enough to throw in a rolling tote and go and see through, so I can quickly see my folders.

    I love this product. Every stamp/die set can be stored together. It also hold associated items that can be needed.
    Slowly transferring my “sets” to this system.


    I have three of the Karen bags. I use them to store my latest purchases of Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies. Works perfectly to keep them together and easily retrieve them.

    I love this bag!! I’m also using it for my stamp & die sets. I’m planning on buying some more for cards also.

    I have been waiting for an organized tool to store Stampin Up bundles of stamps and dies and Tiffany nailed it!! Thank you!

    I Love this bag for my Mosaic Moments dies. I love this technique and these pockets fit the dies in perfectly. I also purchased 6 x 6 pockets for my larger dies and they fit well.

  12. Mary Stone (verified owner)

    I love everything about this set with the exception of the die cards. Some of my dies stay flat on the cards, but others fall down toward the bottom. I can’t figure out why some stay and some don’t.

    I love the Karen bag. My first one is being used for Christmas card making. I have stamps, paper and embellishments in it and it works great. I have purchased 4 more (still need 1) to store my cardstock scraps from MFT. I had originally created my own folders but no place to store them closed. This is the perfect answer.

  14. Mary Callahan (verified owner)

    Poor Karen was full to the brim within hours of coming here. She was just what I needed to store scattered card. Now I might eve find them in a timely manner.

    I love this bag to store my Stamps of Life die & stamp sets together. The Double-Sided Sticky Die Storage Cards are the most important part for me. I enjoy how my dies stick to these cards. I bought extra cards to storage the small die pieces for my Sizzix Cards kits that are too big for this container. They work great for the small dies since I was using magnetic sheets which was not working any where as great as these sticky cards do.

    I use these for die storage. But I recently purchased four of the Karen bags to store Demdaco metal megnets for a calendar/message board. It works perfectly. Although they are dimensional, they fit well in the clear stamp packets on a 5×7″ magnetic sheet inside. I can divide them by season. I put the flat magnets that I’ve made with my Cricut on the die storage cards.

      Can you send us some pictures? I’d love to share this idea! Tif

    I own 2karen bags and love them. I’m only giving 4stars because I’d love to purchase bags without the extra stuff. When you use these for storing cards there is no need for extra “die cards”. Is it possible to buy these separately without the inside pages/pockets??? Please.

      Hi Carrie – I’m so glad you’re enjoying your Karen Buddy Bags! We might do the bags without the sticky cards and die pockets in the future, but in the meantime, consider using those pieces in other areas. I use the pockets for so many other supplies in other organizers. My favorite is putting stickers and embellishments in categories, storing them in the file pockets, then sticking them all in a pocket of my Ditto Tool Tote that I use for my planner supplies. I’ve even used the sticky cards to hold tiny punched or die-cut embellishments so they’re more “on display”. While we work on your suggestion, hopefully you’ll find another use for your Karen BB pieces – or donate them to a crafty friend!

    I have bought 2 of these to organize my metal dies. I started out using the die storage cards, but wasn’t happy with the hold. I decided to go with the stamp pocket and I’m using magnetic sheets to hold the dies. By using the magnetic sheet on card board, it has worked great for me. I don’t feel like it is too heavy. I love it. I need to get one more Karen bag and all my dies will be organized. Just wish we could buy the set with out the cards or be able to build are own package. Now I have die cards that I won’t use. But love my new doe organization.

      Madge –
      Thanks so much for taking time leave your comments on this product. Just an FYI, the Karen Bag will be part of our Birthday Sale, I believe on March 2, 2018. As you know, the cards are already pre-packed with the bag, but if you would like them to be a little more “sticky” – try using a repositionable tape runner and just putting 2-3 lines of repo adhesive across the card. It will increase the stickiness and because the adhesive adds a slight elevation, it makes the dies easier to get off the card. If you try this, please do let us know how you think it worked. Tif

    I love my new Karen! I’m using it for clear stamp storage. The sticky cards work perfectly for the loose stamps that have lost their original homes! She’s almost full, so will need to order at least one more very soon!

    I received a “Monica” buddy bag as a crop gift at the Chantilly Stamp and Scrapbook Expo. It’s great – and led me to find the “Karen” bag. I have been looking for a storage solution for my 4×6 and 5×7 pictures. This is it (as soon as it’s back in stock)!! When working on my scrapbook pages, I keep my pictures all together (and I scrap both sizes very frequently). I love that the ‘lid’ on the buddy bag folds back completely out of the way (which is why the 5×7 fab file, while also great, is not as great of an option for me) and that it will stand up on its own.

    I don’t actually need the ‘stuff’ that comes with the bag, but I’ll either find another use it or, more likely, find a crafty friend who will be happy to take it.

    I received my happy mail today and I was so excited. But I found myself being disappointed. The stickey cards dont fit in the pouches even without stamps on them. Trying to get them in the cards bend. I cant imagine if I put stamps on them. I only wanted to use them for dividers for my cards but imagine if i wanted to put stamps on them. Not sure if defective. I put a call into customer service. 🙁

      Hi –
      I’m so sorry you’re having trouble with this set. The pockets are for the stamps and the cards are for the dies. The cards look like they might hold the stamps, because they are shiny. If you peel back the shiny plastic layer on the cards you’ll expose a light tack adhesive. This is for holding dies. Place your dies flat side down on the adhesive and then cover them with the plastic sheet. When the adhesive gets a little dirty – glitter, embossing powder, and other craft room hazards, you can make it sticky again by just adding a stripe of re-positionable adhesive from your tape runner. If this isn’t what you expected or needed, we will happily take it back and help you choose something that will work better for you. Sorry for the confusion and inconvenience, Tif
