I thought a little pop question was in order! For me, it is a tough one! It is between the Cricut and what I have nick, named my zero gravity device. AKA Deja Views - Zero Centering Ruler - 18 inch!

I'm sure if I had a Cricut I'd list that:) But until I do, I'd be lost without my black Zig Writer! I like the double points for bullet and fine writing.

Sometimes, it's just the simple things....

Without a doubt, it would literally be impossible for me to scrap without my laptop - editing and re-editing photos, journaling, creating titles, Funtime software for my Gazelle (a close third favorite), and Photoshop (a close second favorite) for my digi pages. Even if I just have it on to browse sb.com, ebay, etc. while taking breaks from playing with paper - I can't live without it!

That's gotta be a tie between my paper cutter and my see-thru ruler.

So glad to see someone recommend the Fiskars 12" Portable Premium Paper Trimmer....cause as I was thinking about what my "must have" tool was....I was wanting to say my portable paper trimmer....but sadly mine sucks.....but after clicking on the Fiskars and seeing how several others who commented on it all had nothing but excellent remarks, I will say my choice would be a "good" paper trimmer....and the one I will be purchasing ASAP!!! So many have chosen their Cricut Expression....and I luv mine, but I think I'm just too lazy to use it unless I cannot find something I already have "bought" that I can add to a layout....I know....pathetic!!!

My paper trimmer!
here:

It's my favorite paper trimmer ever, and I've have quite a few. I still use my X-Acto laser trimmer every now and then. It would be my 2nd favorite trimmer of all time.

Embellie Gellie for picking up and placing tiny embellishments, thin strips of paper, and flat die cut letters. It's like a third hand!

Hands-down my paper trimmer.

If it broke I'd have to go buy a new one before I could do any more scrapping. I love that thing!

Hi!

I brought up the original Q.

The Fiskers 12"...YES! It is a must have! I got a trimmer with the Cricut but I only use that for traveling. The real stuff happens at home and only with my Fiskers!

It is always tough to say what you can't do without. Yes, my Cricut and I have been bonding quite exclusively lately but that is because I just got a Gypsy for mom's day!

Yes, this was a qood question because now I know what scissors to get and what everyone else is recommending for basic necessities.

Have a fantastic day/night! As usual, past my bedtime!

There are so many, but what comes to mind first is my Stamp-a-ma-jig". I can't imagine stamping without it!

Do I really have to pick just one? How about my top 2... My cricut expressions and my paper trimmer...I can't cut a straight line to save my life

Definitely a tossup between my cricut and my ATG gun. These are my big investment pieces but have been totally worth it and are used in pretty much every single one of my projects.
Other awesome tools that I always use:
Tim Holtz Paper distressing tool
Cutterbee Tweezers
Fiskars paper trimmer
Tim Holtz paper piercer
Cutterbee scissors

It think with those tools you can pretty much scrap anything in any style!

Gypsy (with new updates) and Cricut. Since they work together I decided to pick 2.
