Enabling...

I thought I would share a few things I'm loving right now...


I used my survey taking rewards last week to purchase SCAL for my Cricut Expression.  I have to say I can't believe I waited this long to jump on this bandwagon....  The program is really easy to use yet can do so much.  There are a lot of free svg files out there and it gives me so many more images without buying cartridges all the time.  It's on sale for $59 right now


Another thing that I resisted buying for a long time was an ATG gun.  With arthritis in my hands I didn't think I would like how big it was.  I HAVE LITERALLY TRIED ALL THE SMALL RUNNERS AVAILABLE.   When I could no longer get my Kokuyo dot rollers I was on a search for an adhesive I really liked & with all the layouts/cards I make it had to be affordable too.  I do like the American Crafts runner but at $5 it can get a bit pricey & I don't know if it will longterm last on my projects.  So when Michaels started carrying the pink breast cancer model that with a coupon was less than $17 with adhesive I couldn't resist trying it.  I have to say the weight and size don't bother me since it's so easy to pull the trigger & apply.  This model only uses the quarter inch tape which is what I like anyway.  I am a believer & an ATG girl now..


Speaking of adhesive my favorite liquid adhesive right now is Crafter's Pick The Ultimate.  It's a very versatile glue & dries fast, strong, and clear.  I am using it all the time on my mini albums.  It even holds metal securely so I don't have to get out the Glossy Accents/Diamond Glaze and dries clearer/less shiny than those making it more invisible.  A little goes a long way.


Pink Paislee products are always a favorite of mine... I love all 4 of the lines they released recently.  Parisian Anthology designed by the House of 3 is so elegant & innovative.  I love the subtle resist print that makes it perfect for inking and spritzing.  These tickets are so versatile & affordable.


Unity Stamp Company has a new website.  They have been growing by leaps & bounds and no have a website that can keep up with them.  It's absolutely fantastic.  I love that I can create a wish list & everything is so easy to find now.  You all know how much I love my Kit of the Month...


Another paper line that I have been using up every last scrap of is Crate's Restoration.  I love the colors & texture.
