*10 things I really need in my scrapbook stash*

*1. Adhesive - naturally! I use American crafts roller adhesives for my main papers and for sticking photos. I also use a wide double sided tape for heavier items... and have recently discovered the most brilliant Glossy accents - thank you Rebekah and Kirsty.

*2. Journaling pens - When I first started scrapbooking I wouldn't write on my scrapbook pages as I was afraid I would spoil them! That soon changed and now I do not feel right without my handwriting on a page. I use lots of different pens, normally a roller ball type of pen that doesn't smudge but I have just recently purchased the American crafts precision pens - so I will giving them a go soon.
*3. Ink pads - I love adding definition to my scrapbook pages by inking pieces of patterned paper or borders. I mainly use black and brown and my current ones are Maya road.

*4. Border punches ♥ -  I can't seem to create a page without one these days. My two favourites are Martha Stewart's around the page loopy design and EK success slim edger punch - pointed flower.

*5. Journaling blocks - these can be in sticker or card stock form. Sometimes I use lots of one page and other times just one or two. I love all kinds of brands and styles - anything colour complimentary to my layout really!

*6.  ALPHA STICKERS - these have become my scrapbooking must-have! I hoard them. I love using different types to make up my titles - mixing and matching. I brought theses beauties on Saturday at scrapagogo: go to you.

*7. Washi tape! - This is only a recent love of mine and is now used frequently!


*8. Pretty scissors - I use these to create border pieces or cut out journaling blocks.

*9. Crop-a-dile - I love that it is all-in-one and can punch through thick cardboard

*10. Ranger ink applicator - another new discovery {thank you Shimelle}... used to apply ink to card stock. It's easier on smaller pieces rather than using the ink pad itself {plus less messy}.

Shimelle has more of 10 things on the 10th here

Great list. I've been wanting to try some american crafts adhesive, waiting for my current one to run out so I have an excuse to purchase anew!

Love the alphas you got from scrapagogo. Do you keep all your sheets of odd alpha letters or do you get rid of the packets when it's just q's and z's left? I have loads of packs I'm loathe to throw away even though I'll prob never use those letters! x
