I was re-organizing the scrap area and I had to laugh when I realized just how many tools I need right at my fingertips to have "flow", mine below , curious as to what everyone else just has to have in arms reach - keep in mind this does not include all the embellies, inks etc.!!

With in arms reach..
My MM paper cutter
a clear quilters ruler ( I can't live with out those, I have 4 of them)
Pens and pencils
craft knife
My inks
all my adhesives
Everythig else is pretty close, and my chair has wheels, but if the things above aren't right there, forget scrapping, I'll find something else to do!

You will all think I am insane.. but I don't have hardly any fancy tools.

I have

a cutting mat
ruler
rotary cutter
scissors
craft knife

those are my basic/go to tools.

I don't have a paper trimmer (I use the ruler/rotary cutter -- which is easier to me)

I have no die cutting machines (although I would like to have a cuttlebug)



As far as the other things that are close at hand

Glue Dots
double sided tape
pop dots

I generally have my paper trimmer, page maps/sketches, inks, distressing kit, adhesive and of course all my pp and cardstock I love to play with! I wish I had a cutting machine but will just keep wishing. I have clear stamps and lots of embellies I have at my finger tips too!

I'm really new to this so I don't have much yet, but I couldn't do any work without my:

computer
scanner
printer
xacto knife, cutting mat & clear ruler (not crazy about this sytem but it's what I already had in the house, I haven't had a chance to pick up a real paper trimmer yet!)
photo splits (double-sided tape squares, I did a product search but couldn't find them)
ZIG glue pen

In addition to those below... my CM tape runner, my CM trimmer (cuts smaller pieces and centers), and a pencil... think that's the main ones.
