tried and true

Ali's weekly challenge is to list your current list of supplies-your go-to basic products:

UHU Glue Sticks : these are multi-purpose and I love that they go on in color(purple) and dry clear. I also use the Glue pen and twist and glue.
Mini Glue dots : use it on a variety of things, but really love it for buttons and ribbon
Elmer's Rubber cement-I know it isn't archival safe but I love to use it on mini books and things that require a little extra staying power.

American Crafts Pigment Pro Pens : My favorite period. I love the 05 and 08 tips the best.
American Crafts Slick Writer: the best for writing on transpariences

I am not a big punch person but I love love my Creative Memories Mini Circle and Bid Square punches. Two sizes on one punch, very cool.

American Crafts 3-ring Albums : I love them in all sizes and love the fact that you can alter them or leave them as is. I also love to add different sizes in my albums so this is perfect!
Maya Road Binder albums- I love the odd sizes and shapes of therese albums. You can make a cool mini in minutes and customize it the way you want it.

Storage Stuff
IKEA IKEA IKEA, with some Crate and Barrell- I love baskets,and jars for storage. I keep my stamps and ink pads in seperate baskets. the kits I do purchase also go into a wire basket by my desk for easy access.

Creative Memories 12x12 Trimmer : It works pefect for me and I love the lockable blade. I usually do not cut that much and love to mix my scraps into my layouts so this is perfect for me. I love that it doesn't take up a lot of space and it easy to take to crops.

I did start on my atc cards last night for Denver. These are so much fun to make and so quick. I have five more for this round. I tried to channel my Ali and Emily F artistc skills, lol. Hope the ladies like them. I also did a quick 6x12 layout. treasure the little things. :)

xo-have a great day!!
