Year In Review - Favourite Craft Products 2013

Hello there, hope you all had a lovely Christmas (if you celebrate it, if not had a lovely holiday time). Last year I did my favourite products of 2012 video and as I liked making it and got some nice feedback I thought I would do it again this year.

This year I searched for the perfect white cardstock (that was available to easily purchase in the UK) and found that there are some great cardstocks about but my ultimate favourite is still the Papertrey Ink Stampers Select, however, I just love the Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock too. I also branched out using more Distress Inks which I love and fell in love with the Hero Arts Shadow Inks as well. 

Being on the Clearly Besotted Stamps Design Team I got the chance to play with some amazing products this year and I am so looking forward to what Stephanie has up her sleeve for 2014; I have seen some of it and I know you will LOVE it! I also have really enjoyed the Simon Says Stamp exclusive products, I love their wording stamps and dies especially and I am sure I will be adding more to my collection next year.
I think my ultimate favourite of the year though, is the Wink Of Stella Clear Brush pen - oh my goodness I just LOVE that pen!
For the rest of my favourites of this year please watch the video below ...


What have your favourite craft products been this year? I would love to hear your thoughts, are any of yours the same as mine? Thanks for visiting me today, I will be back tomorrow with my favourite cards of 2013.


  1. Hi Michelle, thanks so much for showing your favorite products over 2013. I've noticed I like a lot of the same products as you use ;) The Bazzill Card Shoppe is by far out my fav cardstock, and the Wink of Stella and enemal dots...yum! They just add a little extra on cards. A couple of my fav products are Hemp Cord (Hemptique)LOVE! Even as silver tread, silver glimmer paper (SU) and sequins!

    Wish you a fabulous new year and looking forward to see all your new creations in 2014!


  2. What a wonderful video Michelle. I have a lot of the items you mentioned but still need to get the wink of Stella pen.

  3. Fun video, Michelle! I got the Wink of Stella this year because of your comments about it. I love that the tip is a brush, a very pointy brush - makes it so easy to get into those little spaces. I won some enamel dots and love using them but I'm interested in getting some of the Doodlebug Sprinkles after seeing yours and hearing your review. Love the blue colors :)

  4. Love all the products looking forward to seeing your 2014 purchases. Happy New Year x

  5. Hi Michelle, thanks for the fab video. I agree on quite a few products; MS score board, enamel dots, Lawn Fawn, Doodlebug to name a few! Looking forward to a crafty 2014, Rebecca x

  6. Everyone loves the Wink of Stella but you and DEBBY Hughes introduced many of us to it.
    Thank you for lovely blog and great videos with such useful info. Best wishes for 2014 in every way.

  7. It seems I like lots of the same products as you! I LOVE my Wink of Stella pen too also enamel dots and doodlebug sprinkles. I like the echo park papers too.

  8. Hi Michelle
    Another vote for Wink of Stella pens from me, my Clear pen has been featured on most of my Christmas cards this year.
    Here's hoping 2014 brings you health, wealth & happiness - especially health as 2013 hasn't been such a good year for you healthwise!
