Big Shot!

And also my piercer/burnisher & my scoring board.

Not to mention my computer--it's my favorite store & classroom!

I've been a dilettante, but I'm thinking of dabbling in something else.

I always have my zero centering ruler and paper piercer on hand. They help on every page, lining things up or placing down stickers. Picking things up. Both very inexpensive but invaluable in my crafting.

Cameo, trimmer, scissors and my CM multi purpose tool. For how cheap it was that is used constantly. I have 2 just in case I misplace one while I'm working.

My electronic cutter, my manual die-cutter and dies.

My stamps.

I can't live without my tweezers for gluing and attaching letters and anything die-cut, and I have to have my Zig glue pen and my ATG gun.

Punches can come in pretty handy, too.

Of course, the one tool I use the most is my personal trimmer, and my detail scissors get used a lot, too.

I've had my Cameo for a long time, but every single time I use it, I'm always amazed! You'd think I'd be over it by now, but no. It's magical.

Paper trimmer, ATG and the tweezers that came in the Making Memories tool kit - I use that with every LO. Since I have rheumatoid arthritis, my hands sometimes have trouble picking things up, so the tweezers are invaluable to me

My paper trimmers, CTMH scissors (love these things), Cricut, paper piercer, cropodile (just for holes - works so well on chipboard), ATG couldn't scrap without it. Sometimes a glue gun - if I am making paper rossettes it is a must. Stamps I use a lot of stamps as well. Making Memories tweezers love them for holding and placing letters when I glue them or for putting small die cuts together. Punches in basics shapes and border punches, sand paper, sponge daubers, zip pens, xyrons, my QK dies, embossing plates, cuttlebug. I didn't realize how many tools I use no wonder my room is such a mess.

Paper trimmer & ATG.


I noticed that a lot of you have the Tiny Attacher on your list. I just bought that on Thursday, but I haven't had a chance to use it yet. I wonder if that will make my list in the future?

Happiness is in the Journey!
