I did a post on my favorite craft supplies last October, but if you know me...you know my mind changes all the time. I am a fickle crafter. I get really excited about certain supplies...and certain crafts...and then I hop to the next. I'm always in create mode, and I'm always looking for something new to learn and make.
I'm gung-ho for paper crafting and these are my current loves:
Copic Markers. Whenever my kids ask me to play, I tell them "Let's color! Go get your crayons." We spend hours upon hours coloring with crayons in coloring books. I love it! I can't think of anything more relaxing. When I am alone, however, I like to pull out the big-kid markers. Copics are amazing! They blend perfectly and the brush tip is precise. There really isn't a better marker. I use the Ciaos because they are cheaper, so I can afford more colors. These are refillable and the tips are replaceable. They'll last forever! I currently have sets A and B. I'd love to get the other two sets someday.
Mini Decks. I love these small paper packs by companies like Cosmo Cricket and Basic Gray. Since I like making cards, but don't really scrapbook, I like the scaled down pattern. They are affordable and so cute.
Scorpal. I've mentioned this on here before, but I am a bit of a perfectionist. I like things straight and perfectly spaced. This Scorpal is a life saver for me. It scores paper at the perfect measurements. I mainly use it to score cards, but I also frequently make gift boxes and embossed patterns with it.
easily be removed and ink can just wipe away.
Scotch ATG. This monster holds some amazing adhesive. It is actually for framers, I believe, but it works great for the average paper crafter. I think I've actually saved money using this big thing! The adhesive is super-duper strong and is archival safe. It is a little cumbersome and takes some getting used to, but I really have grown fond of it!
Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pens. These are, hands down, the best glitter pens available. THE BEST. They come in beautiful colors and are get for adding a little glitz to your projects. They don't clog or jump like most glitter pens do. A must for you pen addicts.
Tim Holtz Non-stick Micro Serrated Scissors. This is my only item replacing a favorite from the last list. The main reason I love these is that I could get rid of all other scissors. These do it all! These never go dull! I can use the same scissors on my ribbon and fabric as I do on my paper and wire! They feel great in the hand and are so precise. And they are nonstick! These are going to be hard to beat.
That's all for now! Coming Soon: Favorite Needle Work & Sewing Supplies.
