Hey Mary Jo,
I use my rotary cutter for my scarpbooking it is a easy cut for my hands. I must get in to see you it has been a long winter. My favorite scrapbook is one of my granddaughter on a fall day in the leaves.

memories to scrap said...

my favorite thing to use when I make my cards is my scraps. I use every square inch of my paper. every sheet of paper is a work of art itself so I have to respect it. Yesterday alone I was able to make 16 cards from scraps from an 8x8 album that I completed.

My Xyron 150 is the one tool that I just LOVE!!!! Can't do without it.

Hello Mary Jo
My favorite scrapbook item has to be rub-ons. Second is journaling stickers/rub-ons, whatever to make notes on my pages easier. Journaling is the one thing I leave to last, and the last thing I remember to do! I've been really into telling stories with my pages, so anything journaling tops my list.

Amy said...

Oooh I think my favorite product is Thickers. And you don't help, carrying new styles and colors almost every time I'm in there!

Diana said...

I really enjoy the punches (as you know I have purchased several of them!) and the clear stamps.
But most of all I enjoy your classes!
Thanks
Diana

I love the corner rounder. Sometimes you just need a softer look and rounding the edges of pictures or paper really softens the look of the page!

Bree said...

Scenic Route Paper Company paper -- anything they make is beautiful and I use it all!

Cheryl B said...

Hello Mary Jo,
Have you ever thought about franchising too NY. Are local store is going out of business and you have done a great job with your place! As for my fav's I don't think I could really pick one. My latest must have is your New little chip board books.

Tracey Vorpagel said...

Hi Msry Jo,
My must have tool is my paper trimmer, I don't think I've ever done a page with out it. But my favorite thing is paper, all kinds of paper. I just love it!!!

I think the one embelishment that I can not live without would have to be ribbon, or maybe buttons...I cant decide. I always buy thoe 2 things constantly. I have more ribbon that I know what to do with and I am constantly giving them away. I just love the way buttons look as well!!! Oh and there is also chipboard, I LOVE chipboard. I just cant decide!

Anonymous said...

Hi Mary Jo,
My favorite tool is the sissix die cutting machine. I like the different weight of paper that I can cut, even my own chipboard.

My newest favorite tool is the Zutter Bind it All. Its great for making quick albums to give as gifts!

daiseyfreak said...

I love your blog. My favorite scrapbooking and card making element is by far my stamps, they add a nice touch to my scrapbook pages, and are the very reason I started making cards. But if that doesn't count, I'm a total ribbon freak. Use it on almost every card!

Stefanie said...

Thanks for being there!

My favorite thing is the crop-a-dile. I love eyelets but always found it a pain to set them. Plus it's great for hole punching too!

Krista said...

My favorite, can't live without it products are Alphabet letters, especially Thickers. I cannot get enough of the Thickers. After that it would be my paper trimmer and scissors, along with patternend paper. I love to handcut embelishments from patterned paper!

sindy sue said...

My favorite tool is the cricut. I don't have one yet, but i used a friend's last week and I absolutely love it. I enjoyed your class last week

Mary Jo - just read everyone's comments, and realized mine has my username instead of my email... so Chameleongryl is Lani H.

I thought more about this question today (I was supposed to go to a crop, but DH is OOT) and thought that I love scrapping WITH FRIENDS. They're a great source of inspiration and motivation... so that's another favorite.

Hi MJ,
I love using mono adhesive it's quick, easy and works well. I also have a new love of rub ons. They are an atractive accent and they don't add any bulk to your page.

Hello Ladies!!!

how about anything new. I find when I buy something I use it over and over.. Like a stam or a punch or a new tool.

I love kraft cardstock for backgrounds. It is my go-to neutral color for a scrapbook page foundation. It's easier for me to start neutral and build more color to a palette than to start colorful and try to balance it out.
Bree M.

Anonymous said...

It's so hard to narrow it down to one favorite! I love my Cricut machine that has eliminated the need to have many different sizes and styles of punches. I also love the clear stamps. Oh, and I can't forget my paper trimmer that makes cutting paper for smaller scrapbooks and cards a cinch.

Hello Mary Jo!

My favorite tool is the Kokuyo Dot n Roller Adhesive. This stuff is great and it's a cinch to refill! The only bummer is nobody sells it locally. Hint, hint. I bought it at a scrapbooking convention last year and haven't used anything since.

Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway!

My Tombow Mono Adhesive is one item I could not live without. I buy them in bulk since I go through them so quickly! I also have an addiction to paper, inks, and rubber stamps.
