hummmmmmmmm??? lets see! ok i will keep it to something that i pick up EVERY time i scrap

1) Making Memories paper trimmer-heavy and bulky so it stays in the same place
2) Fiskers paper trimmer-this is the one i take to crops--but its lightweight-so making a card or photo mat--i can just bring this to my desk
3) Cutterbee sissors
4) fiskers spring action scissors -really great for detail cutout
5)E-Z dots scrapbook adhesives-perm and repositionable
6) xyron sticker makers (large5" and small 2")
7) Aleenes Tacky Glue
Stickles--i started off with stardust and diamond--because it picks up the color of what your putting it on--but then just sparkles--but of course now i have all colors--but if i could only use one--it would be the diamond
9) Plain ol brads-silver and black--thats what i started with of course again--now i have a brad store going on-----but the silver or the black--when i first started--i could use them for the center of flowers
10) ZIG pen--i started off with just a black one and a white one--so that i could get the words to show up on either dark or light paper--of course--now i have all colors--but i still reach for the black or white ones

welp--thats the things i use the most--and almost everytime--i am sure my bank account wishes thats ALL i would use--LOL

(ps--and of course--the cricut gets a good workout too)

Good question! I'm pretty generic with my usual supplies, but these are my must haves:

1. Making Memories 12x12 folding paper trimmer. I paid $50 for it at Hobby Lobby on a whim...wish I would have thought to download a 40% off coupon! But it's been worth every penny and more!
2. Quick Dry tacky glue
3. Aleen's No-Sew fabric glue (for ribbon)
4. Flora Doodles (I buy them at Meijer, and love them! They never get old to me :D)
5. Black stamp pad (for distressing edges)
6. Fiskars Fingertip Control Craft Knife (or just an X-Acto knife)
7. Making Memories circle cutter (wouldn't recommend this one...but I paid for it so I use it anyway lol)
8. Rhinestones, mainly 2mm clear, and my Bejeweler
9. Overhead transparency paper for making custom rub-ons
10. Ribbon...I swear I can't make a page without using ribbon somewhere. It's so versatile...stock up on it, it comes in handy!

Hope this helps a bit. Good luck to you!

Haha, I thought I was the only one who uses Tacky Glue! It's much cheaper than the adhesive runners and Xyron cartridges. I know people don't like using wet glue, but I've gotten pretty good at making it work just fine!
