I need your help! I'm creating a list of all time favorite/best/unique scrapbooking products for new episodes of Real Women Scrap TV (http://realwomenscrap.tv).

What products do you like best? What are some unique scrapbook products you use that are hard to find? Got ideas? Please post a description and link.

Thanks!
Tasra

Looks like Thickers are popular. I'll have to check them out! What about essentials for someone on a budget?

My favorites in no particular order

Sounds Easy Voice Recorder - allows you to make 30 separate 30 second sound recordings on a chip that you put in your album. You use the same hand held "machine" to record and playback. You only need 1 voice recorder and a separate chip per project. I have several in my gallery and explained further in my blog and have used it a bunch if you want to PM me with questions. LOve it!! Its by far my favorite sb product. I wish wish wish I had it when my teens were kiddos - the sounds of their giggles and little voices would be priceless.

Big Kick/Big Shot

Cuttlebug embossing folders

deco scissors from my stash (thats a good economical item -deco scissors are far cheaper than the border punches)

border punches

stamps - another great economic item as they can be used again and again

bind it all - costly initially but saves lots of money in making your own albums

Buttons!! another economic item

Cricut and the design studio

Flock

Glimmer mist!!!! My new passion.

How about Stickles? They just add so much to the page!

DCWV Stacks - with just one you can do almost an entire album.

Slice - initial outlay of $$ but less than with Cricut and cartridges are cheaper. You can make so many embellishments versus buying them.

Versamark embossing ink and embossing powders to "dress up" your embellies made with the Slice on PP

Not only is this seriously sticky but it's the most cost effective adhesive I've yet to find.

I my gun!

Zots glue dots. I don't know what I'd do without them. Perfect for adhering embellies, pictures, and more!

I knew you guys would have the best suggestions. Anything new you'd add based on what came out at CHA last month?

I love my Clip it Ups and the clear flat containers (thick, thicker, thickest) that hold stamps, flowers etc. I can't remember who makes them. They can slipped into a magazine or paper holder for convenience. The Glimmer Mist and the masks that go with them are cool too.

I would like to say the Cricut Gypsy... but I am still waiting on its release.

Love, love, love all the Maya Road stuff for chipboard, mini albums, flowers, rub ons and ribbon. For paper, I love Basic Grey. Gotta have Prima flowers and crystals. Currently addicted most to rub-on transfers.

Nancy - I love clip it ups too. Do you know where you can find those clear flat containers (thick, thicker, thickest) that hold stamps, flowers etc?

Any other organizing/storage must have's?
