This month we are focusing on our "Must Have" supplies. You know, those things that we turn to again and again to create our signature styles? I've asked each of the girls to list out what they can't live without and their manufacturers if they have a preference.
I myself, am quite a schizo when it comes to my style, but if I had to pick one, I guess it would be clean and graphic. Even when I try to do something in a different genre, there is always an underlying clean and graphic feel to it.
So in no particular order, here are my "must haves".
Like most crafters, I have 2 pair that I can't live without. My paper scissors and ribbon scissors.
Cutter Bee for detail cutting.
Oh, who doesn't go through gobs of this stuff??? I prefer only one brand, if you know of a better one, I'm all ears.
Nothing beats a crisp fold, and did you know score lines are great for adding texture to a card too? For way to long, I archaically used the back of a butter knife and the groove in my paper trimmer to score. tsk tsk, I know! Until I found this baby that is.
Martha Stewart Scoreboard by EK Success. I LOVE this thing. It even comes with an envelope template. Scoring boxes has never been so easy, why oh why did I wait?!
Ok...ink is a tricky one, right? I have TONS, from all manufacturers...seriously. But the ones I can not live without and use most often:
Versamark embossing ink
And of course, Fresh Snow pigment ink by Papertrey Ink
OK, so this may sound silly to mention, but what I really want to point out is my must have colors. White and Kraft. I can not live without these two colors in my stash. Seriously, when they even start to look like they are running low, I must compulsively buy more. LOL My brand of choice here is Papertrey Ink's "Stamper's Select" and Stampin' Up!'s Kraft. However, it no longer looks like they are selling Kraft though and I may have to switch to Papertrey Ink for that as well. (I told you I stock up on it!)
I can't say enough good things about twine! Seriously love this stuff.
Rustic Jute Twine by Papertrey Ink.
And of course, my most used stamp set, big and bold, clean and beautiful:
Woodgrain Bundle by Wplus9 Design Studio. I seriously use these stamps way too much, but I can't help it.
And just to tie it all together, here is a card that uses a lot of My Must Haves.
Be sure to stop by the rest of the Design Team's blogs to see what they "must have"!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic Friday!!
