What tool and/or gadget do you have that you absolutely love? Something that you feel you can't do without? A "must have" in your opinion.

For me there are so many things I love using but I think it would be difficult to be without the large cutting mat that I have (about 24" x 24" if not bigger).

And what tool/gadget do you wish you had because you think it will be useful?

I really want to get the Sizzex Big Shot just not sure if I want the Big Shot or the Big Shot Expression. I think this would be a fun addition to my design space...image all the embossing and cutting it can do.

Wow...um....definitely my Fiskars slicer. I'm addicted to my stamps and distress inks. (I NEED black distress ink).

What else...? Everything! LOL

Oh, I forgot about the Fiskars slicer..that's really good too. I have the black distress ink....love it...but I really like the Archival Jet Black ink better, it's amazing how black it is when you use it to stamp.

There are so many things that I could not live without in my scrap supplies! I am in love with my magnetic cutting mat, my Bazzill in stitch'z templates, my acrylic stamps, and my cat's eye inks just to name a few!
I have been really wanting an ATG gun and a big bite to add to my stash.

Now that I have it I don't know how I lived without my cuttlebug. I also need to have ink. I ink almost every LO. I can't get enough of it. Also scissors for distressing.

Can't live without: a good trimmer, my cutter bee scissors, and buttons!!! I am obsessed with buttons of all shapes, sizes, and designs.

What I'd love to have: The Janome sew mini.

I'm going to have to say my ZIG 2-way glue pen. I use it for everything. It's that one supply that I make sure I never run out of.

And I always seem to be looking for my tweezers....so I guess they must be pretty important too.

I love my paper trimmer but I would say that I especially love my acrylic stamps and inks. That said, I have noticed that I can simply not scrapbook without having EVERYTHING at arms reach!

I wouldn't want to scrapbook without ALL of my stuff... But if it really came down to it, I'd still need my paper trimmer.
I really want the little Heidi Swapp iron because I hate having the fold lines on my ribbon, but I don't use a regular iron so I guess I don't really have a need for it! But it looks so fun and the fact that it's miniature makes it all the more fun.

I could not live without my:

Making Memories Trimmer
Making Memories Slice
basic tool kit (hammer, spatula, hole punch...)
adhesive of every kind (xyron, mod podge, and a tape runner are my basic go-tos but I have a whole shelf)

I'd be nothing without my trimmer, scissors and adhesive...but I also use my tweezers on practically every LO I do. They're great for placing letters and embellies in just the right spot (and I don't end up with sticky on my fingers!!)

Love my Pazzles Inspiration! Don't know how anyone can live without it. There needs to be one in every scrapping home around the world! That said, I gotta have Glue Dots , flowers and brads, my Xyron sticker machine, my Cutterpede trimmer, and my CropADile.

If I have it I can't live without it. If I don't have it I guess it is not ment to be mine (yet).

seriously, I can't live without my eyelet setter set. when I bought it I didn't know it would be so inportant to me but then I used it for the first time and I was hooked......

I really need my creativity inside my heart and mind. I really can't live with out it....

My Cricut Expression! I LOVE it! I have so many tools and stuff though that I feel like I don't even know where to start sometimes. I am definitely on a NO BUYING spree right now...I've got to use some of my collection up! I am seriously not going to buy anything this year (cross my fingers) unless it is paper (for a special project) or adhesive. I've actually got so much stuff I could probably scrap all year without even buying that stuff. Of course, I need to get into doing it a bit more...been way too busy with other things to scrap.

Right now I am mackin' on my Marvy Uchida Giga Square Punch! I LOVE IT! I also love my Signo white pen! It writes on anything and everything so smoothly!

I can't think of anything that I need that badly or want but a SLICE would be nice.

I LOVE all my stuff!! Can't favor one thing over the other. Our local COSTCO had the Purple Cow trimmer last time we went, but didn't know anything about it. You obviously love yours; how do you think it would compare to the Fiskars ? I have the basic trimmer. I've seen the advertisement here for the "big daddy" Fiskars !

Hi - I like my Purple Cow 2-in-1 paper trimmer, my QuicKutz Revolution, a good tweezers is handy, a glue pen is too for those very small things to glue down, and last but not least, a good LO gallery or magazine to go to for ideas is so handy!

My paper trimmer probably gets used more than anything so I guess I will say that.

I don't have any cutting system (Sizzix, Cricut, etc.) - I'd really like to have one mostly for doing letters for titles.
