It's been 13 years since I started with the scrapbooking and all that crafty hobbies. I have to say I fell in love from the first moment with scrapbooking, albums, embellishments, buttons, journaling and my pics.

I wanted at every moment to take a picture and started creating a layout ASAP! As time went on I was learning little by little all available materials that were in the market. After years of trying and testing, here I share a small list, "My Top 10" (for the moment, LOL!) of my favorites scrapbooking tools. I have to say, I have a lot of favorites! But, there is always those tools we use the most. Isn't that right? Also those brands that captivate our hearts. Let's take a look...

I invite you to visit my blog to read more about this. Hope to see you there sharing your favorites scrapbooking tools also...
