Favourite Products 2012

So I thought I would do a favourite products of 2012 review. To see all the products without the written chat please scroll down to the video.
First of all I have really got into making my own card bases this year. I have mainly used white Papertrey Ink CS or Kraft PTI CS. I fell in love with PTI white Stampers Select CS a few years back but since I found it less easy to get it from the USA I stopped uisng it, this year I fell in love with it all over again and it is now my go-to card for card bases and Copic colouring. Since I have been making my own card bases I have been having to score my card, I bought the Martha Stewart Mini Score board only a little while ago but think it is great, and a great size for cards.
2012 saw me use more PTI stamps too, I really like the style of them and really love the sentiment stamps where there are two different fonts, one such set is the Filliable Frames Sentiments set. For ink I always use my Memento Tuxedo black ink if I am colouring with Copics but for colour I have loved using the PTI inks (I have the cubes) and the Memento inks (I have the dew drops).
I have loved dies this year, most of my favourites being from either PTI or MFT. Two of my faves are the Die-Namics Sentiment Strips and the Fishtail Flags Stax. For adhesive this year I have loved using the Stick It Adhesive Squares which are are bargain at 99p a pack and also loved using my ATG, I used to use DST but now 99% of the time use my ATG and find it very easy and less messy to use.
Embellishments this year have mainly consisted of twine - my fave being Doodlebug Doodle Twine and Doodlebug Jewels although I have loved the teeny tiny 2mm rhinestones from The Hobby House as well. In 2011 I fell in love with MME patterned papers however with 2012 being more CAS I haven't used them as much although I LOVED that Doodlebug brought out 6x6" paper pads and one of my faves being Hello Spring.
Here's the video:

  4. Interesting recommendations Michelle. Here are my faves from 2012: I love memento dew drops too - they are quite inky and last a long time (as opposed to versamark cubes which seem to run out quicker). I live in Australia and have finally got some PTI things this year (I won a $75 voucher which helped!) I love their ink and kraft cardstock too and their twill ribbon. I have done letterpressing (Lifestyle crafts) this year. It is quite temperamental but I usually get some good results (as well as some duds). I have used twine a fair bit (Divine Twine) and Stampin up papers, cardstock and ribbon.

  5. Have a great new year and look forward to your 2013 blogs and videos!!!!


  6. Love your video's Michelle! Can't wait for this month's haul!

    Big hugs
