Now, way to go and make things hard. LOL. It's too hard to choose just three things, so I divided it into three things per category. Yeah, I'm not great at following directions!
Tools: I use my cutterbee scissors, Making Memories trimmer, and punches quite a bit.
Adhesives: I like Tombo for paper and pictures, and glue dots, KI Gloo, or Glossy Accents for embellishments. Embellies: buttons, adhesive pearls, and flowers.
Papers: for cardstock, I prefer Bazzill. For DP or PP, my fave manufacturers are Graphic 45, Webster's Pages, and American Crafts. I also love Echo Park and Basic Grey. Heck, I just love paper.
