Current Crafting Favorites

Favorites Cover

One of my guilty pleasures in life is viewing other bloggers’/youtub-ers monthly favorites posts.  I’ve picked up so many ideas for makeup, clothing, scrapbooking, and many other purchases by hearing other people rave about the products they are loving!  More often then not I find some really great gems.  So today, I thought I’d share some of my own favorites.  These aren’t specific to any given month.  Some are old and some new or new-to-me, but they are all things I’ve been loving and grabbing for a lot lately!

IMG_6416First up is this coloring book.  This particular book is one that I purchased for my Mom for mother’s day.  Before wrapping it up I had a lot of fun flipping through each and every page checking out the beautiful and intricate designs.  It won’t be long before I purchase my own coloring book(s).  I think I may go for this one.  Also, I’m pretty sure this is going to be sitting on my desk next year.IMG_6417

I’m a big fan of Archival inks.  They work great for stamping on photos, and I love the clear and vivid print I get every single time.  I use black ink for about 90% of my stamping, but lately I’ve started branching out.  Over the last several months I’ve collected these colors and I’m thrilled with how great they look together!  See them in action here :)

(Colors in the photo above are: Plum, Tea Rose, Fern Green, and Sky Blue)

My next set of favorites should be classified under “limited edition” since they are sadly no longer available for purchase.   So, why include them if you can’t click over to purchase?!! I wanted to mention this Spring Break kit that was available in the Kelly Purkey shop in March because my admiration for this kit goes well beyond this specific design.  I’ve been a fan of Kelly Purkey’s stamps for years, but this was my first time buying a kit that came with cards.  These cards are top quality. The cardstock is really think, and the print quality? I think you can see for yourself how awesome it is by seeing that gradient effect on the Vacation Mode card.

I also couldn’t not mention this Ali Edwards roller date (and time!) stamp.  I don’t use a lot of roller stamps, but if you’re ever planning to do a Day in the Life or Week in the Life project, I feel like this is one of those product staples.  Fingers crossed Ali brings it back to her shop again soon :)

I find myself using my Fiskars 1″ circle punch pretty frequently for punching around smaller printed designs.  This is one layout that I used it on quite a bit for trimming out embellishments.

I’ve also found myself grabbing for my Tombo multi glue a lot lately for adhering down tiny little embellishments.  The tiny tip applicator makes it idea for small things, and the glue itself works really well.

And finally, more Kelly Purkey products (ha!) . . . however, this time I’ve got you covered with some fun stuff that’s still available for purchase!  I’ve been reading a lot more lately, so I’ve found myself grabbing this stamp set for documenting all of the great books I’ve discovered.  Also, these stickies work great on just about every project.

I’d love to know what some of your favorites are! Do you have any go-to items, or do you find yourself always switching things up?
