My Faves!

I thought it would be nice to share with all of you some of my favorite craft tools/items. I will share new faves every so often to keep things fresh! I will attempt to let you know where I got the items, but if all else fails look on eBay! :-)

Here are my first group of Must Have Scrapbooking items in no particular order!

Googly Eyes!

~You can get these almost anywhere! I got mine at Wal-Mart and I have even been able to find them in Targets $1 spot. If you have a Cricut and the Create A Critter Cartridge then you have to have googly eyes!

Stardust Glitter Pen by Sakura
StarDust Glitter Pen
~I got mine at Jo Ann's Fabric. They are in the scrapbooking area, with the pens in a 2 pack.

Scalloped Boarder Edge Punch by Stampin Up/EK Success

~Got mine at a local Scrapbook Expo. I have never seen it at a local Craft Store, check Oh My Crafts for a great deal!

P.S. I really don't like the High Tac adhesive that is in it now. I really like the Perma Tac cartridges.

CutterBee CutterPede, by EK Success
Cutter Bee - Cutterpede
~ I had a Fiskers cutter and hated it. I love my CutterPede! Cuts straight every time! Check your local Craft Stores.

Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

~ I finally found a Black ink pad! I don't know how many I went through that when stamped came out gray. The Memento ink is great for stamping images and coloring them in! You can use Copic Markers, Colored Pencils, Water Color Pencils...the list goes on and on! This ink will not smear!

Uni-Ball Signo White Gel Pen
Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen
~A great Gel Pen! Check your local Scrapbook Stores. I have not seen it at the major Craft Chains.

Corner Rounder
Corner Rounder
~This is an old corner rounder. I don't remember where I got it. It will be replaced with the We R Memory Keeps Corner Chomper, once I find one!!! (I want to use a coupon so...waiting for my local craft chain to get them).

If you have a favorite brand of any item I mentioned above please, leave a comment and a reason why it is your fave.

Happy Scrappin!

Cause for the Paws Crop II 2011

I Plan on attending this crop next year. I think it's for a great cause and in a great location. I am announcing it early so everyone can plan for it! I will post the announcement again later in the year as a reminder.

“Cause for the Paws Crop” 2
January 7-9, 2011

Every year, six to eight million cats and dogs are put into shelters – and as many as four million are euthanized. With the drastic economic crisis that has hit the United States, our shelters and rescues are struggling to provide for the animals that have been abandoned on their doorsteps.

With your help, we can change this!

This is a time when local animals need us the most! With the recession and home foreclosure crisis costing them their homes and families, thousands of innocent animals depend upon us to save, rescue and adopt them, more now, than ever before.

Please join us January 7th, 8th, and 9th for “Cause for the PAWS Crop” 2 to benefit animal rescue. This will be held at the Kenilworth Lodge in Sebring, Florida.
