Don't think there is anything that I use EVERY time but I use liquid pearls a lot, recent fan of the enamel dots, I love twine and chipboard 3D elements....
I use my Cameo for almost everything now, if that counts?
I try to put some kind of embellishment on every page - a button, stickers,ribbon,flower,bl ing, etc. I know this sounds like a "duh" comment but in the past I have many pages of just a border and title. I have to remind myself to use the other "beauties" that I have. I need to go back and "fix" my oldest layouts.
I distress everything, and about a year ago I started adding a little personal element. It is a little snail stamp, about a quarter of an inch, that a friend gave me. I started using it on everything I did, it has become a game when people look at my books to find the snail on the page!
