I was just wondering if there are any products, or tools that you have just got recently and wonder how you ever scrapped without them. I love seeing what products other scrappers love and cannot live without--I always end up adding so many things to my wish list after seeing other people's favorite products!
Mine would be: the Bazzill Basics in Stitchz' templates, my Heidi Swapp petite paper piercer, and my growing collection of flourish and journalling stamps(especially the Autumn Leaves Flourishes and the 7 Gypsies interchangable stamps).

I have really gotten into Stickles lately..although they have been around for a while. I LOVE my growing collection of Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Crackle Paint.

I have to agree on the Signo pen! How did I ever write without this thing?! Otherwise there have been a lot of things I'm enjoying, but not really "I can't live without"!

I am SUPER behind the times, but my latest favorite is chipboad!! It seems like every LO that I have done in the past three months has some sort of chipboard on it.

I'm all into distressing right now and I can't believe that I didn't start it sooner.

How big are the 7 Gypsies round images? Diameter? The website doesn't have a description yet. And, do I have to buy the more expensive one to get the stamper? The cheaper ones are extra images, right?

LOL.....I am behind the times too because I also started using chipboard very recently.

Another thing that I am really into right now is distressing. I used to not like it, but then I tried it and now I am hooked!

Ooooh good stuff in this thread!! *updates shopping list* I'm still pretty new to scrapping so I've just discovered alcohol inks and 3-D foam adhesive, I'm not sure what I've done without them so far, I know theyre pretty common supplies but still, its been huge for me!

Here's my recent faves that I use constantly: Besides whats on the list, I use the Quick-Dry tacky adhesive by Scotch and non stick scissors by Provocraft all the time. Also loving all the new Basic Grey and Sassafras Lass papers. I can't get enough of BUTTONS either. I especially like all the Autumn Leaves and My Minds Eye ones. Love them.

Love the Glue Dots . Use to use the scrappers glue, but then discovered the dots are less of a mess, and wondered why I never used them since the beginning. The glue has been gone for awhile now since discovering these.

Well, this isn't very exciting, but I LOVE my new "pencil boxes" from Oriental Trading. They're white (like Cropper Hopper stuff), and they snap shut. I have my glaze pens in one, my watercolor pencils in one, my Signo Uniball pens in one, my glue pens in one... I have them all labeled on the "narrow side", so they stand on their sides, which makes everything laying horizontal. And they were SO inexpensive.

RIght now, I'm really loving the bright, bold, sharp colors. I can't get enough of them. And this seems to be the year of the boy because I am finding tons and tons of paper for them. I'm LOVING it!

I'm not really into tools that much except the basic ones that I know I'll use often, so no "hot" tools here. Just supplies.

Just bought a Big Bite. I can scrap without my Cricut but I'd rather not.

I'm loving ribbon (nothing new, but I don't seem to be able to finish a layout without it these days). My newfound love is Heidi Swapp tulle ribbon... mmm, yummy!
I also love the Heidi Swapp chandelier crystals, they are too awesome!
Hambly out on a limb rubon
Fancy Pants felt shapes

I seriously cannot scrap without rub-ons, chipboard, bling or paint.

I love the American Crafts mini-marks, Basic Grey and Hambly rub-ons the most.

Too much good stuff to choose from just to name a few. The new releases always get me giddy & make my head spin.

My newest toy is the Cricut. My Dh got it for me for Christmas and I used it minimally. NOW!! I'm really playing with it and seeing all the possibilities it has to offer and I'm hooked.

I cannot scrap without my Xyron sticker maker. I don't know what I ever did without it! Now I don't have to mess with glue on small pieces.

Hmmm:
Latest products I don't know how I did without~
1. my Cricut, with my favorite cartridges being Jasmine, George & Basic Shapes (came with) and Alpha-licious.
2. Basic Grey rub-on tool. Before this tool, I NEVER oncee used a rub-on becasue I looked at that little popsicle stick and said, "Yeah, right--like that's gonna work?" with the rub-on tool, rub-ons are as pleasure, and really add to my layouts!
3. Crop-a-Dile Big bite. I love to adhere photos with eyelets, and now I can do them right in the center of a 12x12 page, without hammering and waking everybody up!
4. Finally, I've been buying lots of Basic Grey paper packs. This is the only line so far that I can order, knowing for sure that I will love every page--especailly since they show each pattern on the front of the pckage in the product description on DB.com! I love the saturated colors, the whimsy, the grunge--something for everybody with Basic Grey !
I know these are a lot of repeats of what others have said, but hey, a good thing's a good thing!

I'm now adding Stickles to my must have list! I just got a ton this week and don't know how I ever scrapped without them. They are so FUN to use and they really do dry quick. Here's the colors that I like and are really so versatile! Also the new Basic Grey chip stickers, stamps and rub-on books are so incredibly detailed and beautiful. I have to add too that the Basic Grey Sultry line's colors are so vibrant and pretty. Even more so in "real life". You must try them. So many great new things out right now.

1. crop a dile (the pink one)
2. cricut (the small one)--wow this thing is handy!

Glimmer Mist!!! I love it! Subtle sparkle!!!

Stickles! Obvious sparkle!!!

Alcohol Ink! Makes ghosts colorful (and if you use the metallic colors...SPARKLE!)

Do we see a theme here?

Hugs, Josie

Um....basically plain white cardstock and my computer's printer. I use the cardstock to print out backgrounds to make letters since I can never find letters I like (or in the colors I need). Plus I use my printer to make my own emblishments whenever I can't find ones I like.

OH! And Sharpie Markers! I love Sharpie Markers!

Josie, you have obviously been well-educated in the proper uses of bling!!! The Bling Princess is very pleased!

Things I could not live without...

Bling, naturally...in the form of Stickles, dry glitter/glue pen combo, gemstones, anything sparkly and shimmery.

My Cricut Expression. How did I EVER scrap or make a card without it????

My Making Memories trimmer. OMG the difference between it and any other trimmer is just astounding!!!

My Crop-a-Dile. I used to veer away from using eyelets and snaps because setting them is so noisy. (I'm a midnight scrapper.) Not anymore! Crop-A-Dile sets them so quietly my hubby sleeping in the couch 3 feet away doesn't wake up. (But then, he also doesn't wake up when my Cricut's whirring and cutting.)

Any Bazzill cardstock and Basic Grey pps. I got some in a prize pack last NSBD and I have been properly educated in the errors of my paper choices. I am a Bazzill girl now, through-and-through. (Especially Bazzill BLING! Natch!) And Basic Grey is a favorite, too. Only problem is, I don't have much of it because it's not offered locally, just some select "Edged" cardstock and Bazzill Bling

Glue Dots . How in the world did I attach buttons and other embellies before? Wait, I didn't use buttons or other embellies before!

Xyron 150 and 250. Both make using Cricut's die-cut letters and shapes a LOT easier. As well as attaching ribbon.

You know what? I have too much stuff that I couldn't live without!!!

Yeah! Those, too! Especially blingy Primas (add decoupage and glitter) and chipboard! Clear stamps are SO much easier than wooden ones! I love them!
