My Favorite Crafting Items.....

I have been busy working on lots of projects but I can't share just yet. Some exciting stuff brewing, hehehehe!!! So until I can share what I am working on, I thought I would share with you my must have/favorite crafting items.

1) Creative Memories 12x12 Albums - These are by far my favorite scrapbooks to work with. I have tried others and these are for sure worth every penny!!!!!

2) My Expression - this is by far the best invention in crafting!!! It saves so much time and money. Wow, I remember spending so much of my money on stickers, letters and pre made die cuts. Now I just grab some paper, my cricut and cut some fabulous embellishments for my cards and scrapbook pages.

3) My favorite adhesives - Scotch Pink ATG Adhesive Applicator, I don't know how I ever lived without it before?!?! Zig 2-Way glue pen, it is perfect for those little pieces.

4) My all time favorite paper trimmer is by Creative Memories but now it is discontinued so I have been using the Cricut paper trimmer which I hate don't like at all, it rips my paper every way I use it. I have even tried a new blade. So the other day while on ebay I searched for a new blade for my beloved paper trimmer and guess what I found one, I was doing the happy dance!!!! So if anyone knows of another amazing trimmer please do share!!!

5) I LOVE my personal stamp!! Have you heard of PSA Essentials? They have amazing personalized stamps. If you have not heard of them yet click HERE to go see all there amazing items!!!!!!!!!!

6) DCWV paper stacks, they are so awesome to have all the same matching paper in one place!!

7) Stampin up ink, LOVE IT!!!!!

I am sure there are many more favs so I will be adding to my favs as I think of them. At the moment I am drawing a blank. But have a very blessed and wonderful weekend!!!

I love this paper trimmer by Fiskars

It is a rotarty trimmer and cuts so smoothly. I also love how it has 10 inches on one side of the blade and 2 inches on the other. Awesome. You can switch out the blades for decorative ones which aren't expensive either.

if you use a 40 percent off coupon at Mike's you can get this for 20 something I think, well worth it.

Oh this pic is the old color..the newer one is more blue with butterflies, but same exact trimmer.

I have the same feelings towards the Cricut trimmer. I actually took the plunge and invested in the Stampin' Up! Tabletop Paper Cutter. It was a hit to my scraping budget (I had to skip trips to the LSS for a few weeks) but it was worth every cent spent. It is so sharp and cuts through several layers without one frayed edge! Back when I was still doing classes, I could be preped in no time with that cutter! I LOVE IT!!

I have a Cricut trimmer as well and I can't say it is my fav either. It doesn't cut well at all :(
