A Few of my Favourite Things!!!

I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite things from the 2015-2016 Annual Inspirations and Holiday Expressions catalogues.  Some of the items are new to these books and some are good old standbys that I can't live without.

So, let's get started - - in no particular order cause we can't have a single favourite can we!!!! :)

10.  Cricut Collections - CTMH offers five different cricut collections - each with over 700 images.  New in this release, the collections are being offered with cardstock (instead of die cut shapes), plus three co-ordinating stamps only available with the collection.  Whether you choose Art Philosophy, Artiste, Artbooking, Artfully Sent or the new Artistry you won't be disappointed!!!

9.  Organization - I'm stylin' with my lagoon chevron co-ordinated rolling tote, shoulder tote, marker roll-up and accessory roll-up.  You can fit more than you'll need for a day crop or a weekend retreat with these organization items.  

8.  Micro-tip non-stick scissors - Love, love, love the micro-tip non-stick scissors.  These babies are worth their weight in gold!!!!  Easily cut thru sticky foam tape and move onto paper or twine and no problem!!!!

7.  Fine point tweezers - These are my third hand - I use them constantly from picking up tiny pieces to adhere to your work, to tying bows - my tweezers are always within reach.
6.  Exclusive Inks - Always ready with an up-to-date colour pallette, CTMH exclusive inks are top notch.  They are water based dye inks which soak into your paper.  Also available are pigment inks, Shin-Han alcohol markers and soon to be added Memento tuxedo black ink.  
5.  How-To Books - Whether you are a card maker or a scrapbooker, CTMH has the How-To Book for you.  There are eight volumnes to choose from which all have full colour sketches and samples for easy cutting and assembly.  Turn each sketch 90 degrees for a completely different look.
4.  Paper - A package for every season, reason and papercrafter there is.  Whether you purchase the paper package collection, a fundamental assortment or glittery goodness you will fall in love with CTMH paper.  You can distress, ink, cut and stamp to your hearts content - this paper will take it!!!

3.  Base & Bling - This is such a fun line - not just for jewellery - you can add the 'bling" as embellishments to your cards and layouts.  Although only a necklace chain is sold, you can shorten to a bracelet and make a customized charm bracelet for you & a friend.  
2.  Kits - The "cut above" kits come with everything you need to put together great cards.  I love these kits for quick, easy cards.  They are great for beginner to advanced cardmaker.

1.  My Acrylix - Did I save the best for last.... CTMH My Acrylix are clear polymer stamps making your stamped images easy to place.  There is such a wide variety they appeal to every papercrafter, whether you are a card maker or a scrapbooker.  

What are your favourite things?  I'd love to hear what & why!!!
