My favorite things

Two posts in one day!  Can you believe it? :)

I wanted to take a few minutes and talk about a couple of questions I hear quite often. 

"What are your favorite Stampin' Up products?"


"What kind of products would you recommend for someone wanting to start crafting but are not sure where to begin?"

And so, I put together a list of my favorite products below.

Watercolor Wishes Card Kit - This kit is PERFECT if you're new to crafting.  Everything that you could possibly need is included in this kit - including a fantastic stamp set.  The only thing you may want to have is some liquid glue for the wood embellishments.  Other than that, the kit is all inclusive and has colored step by step instructions included.  Makes 20 cards and also includes envelopes.

Favorite Image Stamp Sets
- "Butterfly Basics" and "Awesomely Artistic".  If you've followed my blog for awhile, you know that most of my work is kind of "cutesy".  I've always loved fun happy images.  But there is something so beautiful and elegant about the images on these sets.  I absolutely love both of them.

Favorite Image Stamp Set
- tons of great versatile sentiments.  I use this set all the time.

Stamp Scrubber
- I honestly don't know how I ever crafted without this.  For years, I was using baby wipes to clean my stamps.  After using the Stamp Scrubber once, I was hooked.  It just makes things SO much easier!  And the Stampin' Mist smells incredible.  It kind of has a very light floral scent.  Not overpowering at all.  Since I had a spray bottle at home, I just bought the Stampin' Mist refill and use that -works like a charm!

Envelope Punch Board - Even if you're not into card making, I highly recommend this product.  It is also great to make little envelopes for your planner, journal, etc.  And it's easy and fun to use!  There are a ton of ideas on youtube for this great product.

Paper Trimmer - something I truly believe every crafter should have.  It just makes creating your projects so much easier.  And this trimmer has a lot of great features such as a safety lock and also a scoring blade. 

Whisper White Cardstock - another staple when it comes to card making.  Great for card bases and also perfect for stamping.

Hope you found this list helpful.  If there's anything that you think you may be interested in, all of the products are listed below.  Just click on any picture and it will take you directly to my shopping page.
