Gotta say, it's interesting to see what we all consider essentials! I thought our lists would all be similar, but they are actually fairly different.

In no particular order...


  • cardstock, especially white and kraft
  • stamps... especially layerable images and PL-style sentiments
  • inks (Versafine primarily, then Memento Luxe and HA)
  • ATG
  • the internet
  • washi, twine, and glitter tape, which I consider a single category
  • Canon Selphy (I can't be bothered to order prints!)
  • Cameo & cut file library
  • plain specialty papers - vellum, glitter, transparency, fabric
  • small, flat letter stickers


I could live without patterned paper. Actually, I struggle to use it. Of course, I love to collect it...
