    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  7. My favorite adhesive is my AdTech Permanent Tape Runner. You can get other kinds of tape for it, but I really like the permanent one. It is inexpensive and it works really well! Great video!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Foam tape is definitely my my favourite tool! Just ordered a large roll after only being able to get the small rolls that run out immediately, so I'm very excited to create lots of dimensional cards now, aha! Great list!

  9. Loving this series - getting loads of tips. I've been thinking about a guillotine for a while as I'm not that fussed about my Fiskars trimmer. I'll look into this. I'm still getting to grips with a lot of my tools and adhesives, finding what works best for me, but I do like the Multi Medium Matte and the mini score board. I have some Tonic scissors that I just bought which are like your XCut ones and they are fabulous! Definitely my Best Buy of the year.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I always enjoy watching all of your YouTube videos, the content is awesome! My favorite tool at the moment is my We R Memory Keepers glass cutting mat. I got it for Christmas and I think it is very handy. As for glues, I am loving the Collall all purpose glue for matting and layering. It works so well! Thanks for the chance to win!! Happy Holidays :)

  11. Hi there, Michelle!
    Thank you once again for the tips about adhesives and tools. My favourite tool is the scissors, as I like to do a lot of fussy cutting. As for adhesives, I sometimes use double sided tape but mostly I like liquid glue.
    Hugs

    ReplyDelete
  12. my favourite tool is a 3m non stick titanium scissor, super sharp and non stick! except for foam tape, that seems to stick to everything anyway. my favourtie adhesive is Aleene's fast grab tacky glue, esp for embellishments like sequins and such. personally the mulit medium matte doesn;t work for me, it mats my shiny sequins and i can always see the spillage, probably my cardstock or fussy eye ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I can't choose just one favourite tool - I'd have to say either my Sizzix Eclips, which saves me a fortune on dies, or my Tonic guillotine which I use every time I craft.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thanks again for the great video! My favourite tool is the t ruler! So useful to get everything strait!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thoroughly enjoying this informative series. My favourite tool by far is the Sizzix Big Shot which I bought around 3 years ago.

    1. Hi Hazel, the guillotine that I linked to is the new updated version, the one I have is pretty old now. They have changed the handle a bit and the colour is different but I believe it still works the same. The album is a Simple Stories Snap Binder, as well as the pockets inside. There is a link on my original post here - http://www.cardgrotto.com/2014/12/video-how-i-store-stencils.html I do love this storage solution! Wishing you all the best for 2016 and thank you so much for your support this year xx

  48. I'm really enjoying this series, Michelle. My favorite tool is my Fiskars paper trimmer with the wire guide. I've tried many paper trimmers and always go back to my Fiskars. My favorite adhesive is my pink Tombow Stamp Runner with the dot adhesive. If I don't get my layers completely straight, I can usually pull them up and reposition them without destroying my card.

    ReplyDelete

  61. Loved your video. We have a lot of the same favorites. I really enjoy the Multi-matte medium and I need to get a guillotine trimmer, the others just don't cut straight all the time, its disappointing. Thanks for sharing! Have a wonderful New Year! :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I really like Glossy Accents, although I need to order Multi Medium as I have not yet tried it. Love this series!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hard to choose one adhesive isn't it, because different ones work well for different purposes. I love my ATG gun as well, although because it lasts so long I always forget how to load it when I need a new roll of adhesive...lol! I also love Tombow Mono Multi because it give me a little "play" time before it dries if I place something crookedly (ask me how I know!). Thanks for another wonderful video. I have been wanting to try to foam instead of the Scotch tape, especially for word dies, you have remind me I need to order some foam and give it a try. Happy New Year to you and your family.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Loving this series Michelle! I love the Stick It adhesive sheets for use with intricate and word dies, as well as for glitter! Keep up the great work Michelle!

    ReplyDelete
  65. My favorite magic stuff is Glossy Accents! Strong glue and perfect for dimension!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi, my favourite adhesive is Matt medium: its super strong and I like that it's matt and therefore hard to see if some squeezes out.

    ReplyDelete

  69. Again, hard to choose a favorite. I recently tried the Stick-It adhesive sheets for die cuts on my Christmas cards. Really great.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Hi Michelle, I'm glad you asked ;) My favorite cutting device must be mine alone because I never see anyone else using it but it's the first one I bought and although I have tried various others including the one you showed in the tonic version, I keep putting those away and using this one exclusively. Its a Fiskars ProCision Rotary Bypass Trimmer. Anyone want some free cutters :) I might have a few...

    ReplyDelete
  71. As you mentioned there are many adhesives and tools out there but I can't craft without my ATG tape gun. Works great for me and I can get refills easily at a good price. Thank you for all your great videos!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Thanks for sharing your favourite products Michelle. I love my scor-tape and my stencils the most. But I have to admit that it is hard to single out my favourite as I enjoy playing/creating with all my lovely things.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Always enjoy your videos, thanks for showing your favorites. I have to add several items to my list.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Hi there! I loved the video! We have almost identical tool stashes! (and adhesive!) The only thing I didn't see, which I adore, is Alene's tacky glue. I use it a ton!! The next fave of mine is my ATG gun, and I have the same as you :) I also couldn't do much without my beloved Spectrum Noir markers, as I'm a digi image addict and coloring enthusiast! Thanks for the chance to win! xoxo Jen

    ReplyDelete
  85. My favorite tool is my heat gun - I use it to quickly dry watercoloring and stamping, and I love heat embossing with it!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Foam tape. Hands down, my fave. Can't craft without it. It does so much to a card without even being visible. The quiet super hero of card making! 😆

    ReplyDelete
  87. I struggle with loving my adhesives,but I'd have to say Scor-tape is my current favorite. This video was very helpful! I also have just started getting into stencils and they are really fun to use, so many options with them!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Somehow I missed this post...My fave is Multi Medium Matte adhesive. I couldn't live without it :)

    ReplyDelete
  107. Great video, Michelle! Added some of these things to my shopping list for the next time I make an order. One of my favorite adhesives is the Quickie Glue Pen---especially for paper piecing or for getting glue into small areas. One of the tools I reach for most often is my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, which is especially great for lining up wood mounted stamps. I just got a MISTI tool though and am super excited to try it out!

    ReplyDelete

And as far as adhesives go the 2mm thick foam tape is my favorite. It is hard to find in Romania so any brand will do for me...
