The Basics

Today I enjoyed a small scrap project, before I started and without even thinking I grabbed 5 items and loaded them to my crafting table. This got me thinking--I have some favorite items that I need next to me for every project! I hadn't ever realized I have become independent on my "tried and trued" staples. So here is my list:

-Fiskars paper trimmer (it is pretty beat up at this point)
-Big Bite by We R
-Scrapbook Adhesives Mounting Squares
-ColorBox Chalk inkpad in Dark Brown
-Glossy Accents by Ranger Ink

I think I use at least a few of these 5 items about every time I sit down at my desk. I guess I have become a creature of habit :) What are your "staples"? Share the basics that you use every time you sit down to crop. I bet there will be some things I haven't used in a while that I should pull out and get excited about!! Let's Share and Have a great week!


  1. Here are my "staples"
    1. I LOVE my big Fiskars paper trimmer, 8 1/2" by 12 1/2".
    2. Couldn't work without my 12" C-Thru B-70 ruler.
    3. My ColorBox pigment brush pads in Black and Chestnut.
    4. Wouldn't stamp without my Versafine stamp pads in Onyx Black and Vintage Sepia
    5. And I couldn't live without my ever growing stash of clear polymer stamps!

    Pair these with some beautiful patterned papers and I have some pretty awesome cards!

  2. are you ever coming back???? I keep checking the site and NOTHING?!?! Please come back!
