Have you tried the ATG gun? I have the Red 714. Cost me a little over $70 for the gun, and 24 rolls plus shipping/handling. But it paid for itself after the 10th roll. It would have cost me 4 of my old adhesives for one roll of the ATG. A slight learning curve but not hard to get used to. Now it's second nature.

I can pretty much scrap with anything, but the linked products below I absolutely have to have.

I also need textured cardstock (any brand, esp. Bazzill ), stamps, and many colors of ink.

In no particular order, especially after one and two:

1. paper trimmer (right now it's a Cricut, I want a cuttepede so badly!)

2. Making Memories basic tool kit

3. solid cardstock (I'm totally fine with cheaper caompanies like Paperbilities, which I'm pretty sure is Colorbok anyways!)

4. DCWV (cheaper, qualitiy supplies that are trendy and easily accessible in my area)

5. Tombow adhesive roller (permanent new style)

Sizzix is a manual die cutter. Lots of really cool shapes and fonts.

Cricut is a computerized die cut machine, but you don't have to hook it up to your computer. It's portable so you can take it with you to crops. Other computerized diecut machines hook up to your computer. There should be lots of discussions you can look up here in the Forums that discuss the different machines.

Cropadile is a hole-puncher extraordinaire. Punches through just about any material. Now they have something called "Big Bite". It reaches 6 inches into whatever you're punching. Great for 12x12 papers.

Hope that helps!
