DON'T forget good scissors (preferrably more than one pair, because they ALWAYS get lost on my table), a couple metal rulers,,,,,,,,a craft knife and a self healing mat,,,,,,

what about one of those storage containers for the table that goes around like a lazy susan,,,,i forget the name of them,,

My new obsessions are RUB ONS and PERFECT PEARLS...haven't put them on a layout yet, but plan to this weekend! Tim Holtz has a video on the PP - they are so much fun!

Love my cutter bee scissors and Fiskars fingertip control craft knife. I'm big on journaling stuff, too. What about a signo? I also can't live without Glue Dots and I love KI gloo. I really like liquid pearls, buttons, and brads, as well.

What about a good light source, preferably two of them......one overhead and one task lighting.

I love, love, love my OTT light...a bit pricey, but sooooo worth the investment.

They are often on sale for 40 - 50 off at Joann's or Michaels....or you could use a coupon if not.

You won't be sorry.

The white UNi-Ball Signo is the best pen ever (unless you want to write on white paper).

I am wanting to get into heat embossing. That might be something you'd enjoy.

Ink, paint, and crackle medium. Cardboard and bubble wrap to play with the paint.

I second Holly's vote for ATG!

Also geometric punches. These work for everything in any style of scrapping. Great for cards and a way to use up scraps.

Also I love my Lazy Scrapper bucket. I keep all my most often used tools and glues in it. I take it with me to crop and have in on my desk. No more forgetting stuff when I go to crops. I have the blue/brown one since I'm not really a pink girl.

IMO if you hve a cricut you also need the following software packages

Cricut Design Center
Cure Cuts A Lot
Inkscape (free download)

With these packages and some time for the learning curv, you might never buy another sticker or pricely embellishments again.
