I LOOOOVE my stamp-a-ma-jig - especially now since I loss vision in one eye. With no depth perception it has become by new best stamping buddy!
“I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be, but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.” ― Douglas Pagels
Items I love: Cutter Bee scissors and tweezers, Martha Stewart and EK Success edge, square and all different size circle punches, 0 centering ruler, Versafine inks, Ott light, Stuftainers to hold my cling stamps and all the different size Xyrons. I have 4 sizes, including the original that takes 8 1/2 x 11 paper that I got when it first came out.
What is the "Perfect Layers Tools" and where can it be purchased if I want one?
SU use to sell it. It is a great tool. It allows you to easily measure the perfect layer. Maybe check eBay? Or look at the thread about things people wish they hadn't purchased and find someone who dislikes it and make a deal?

I vote for my QK Revolution. I bought it off of Craig's list after much debate since I own a Big Shot, but I am very glad I did. I love lining up my QK alphabets on the magnetic platform and only putting one acrylic plate on top and done.
I wish the BS people would come up with some kind of magnetic plate for the machine, don't they know that most of us use nesites and the like?
I didn't get to Sunday school today because I couldn't sleep last night. Got up this morning at 3 a.m. and washed dishes! So this afternoon I went through my craft area and did some "cleaning house." I am beginning to order more SU cardstock. Love it! Love my stamp a ma jig I just got last month. My Big Shot gets used a lot. Love my computer too. It is so nice to be able to print sentiments in the different fonts I downloaded. I only wish my kitty would stay off my crafting countertop!
That is one of the sweetest pictures I have ever seen. It melts my heart.
My daughter gave me the Zutter paper cutter last year for Christmas.....absolutely love it...it cuts cardstock in 1/2 in an instant....both 12x12 and 8x11...I can cut through a ream of paper in no time at all..............

I love, love, love my Big Shot, Nesties, embossing folders (I use some combo of these on every card I make), my Tonic guillotine cutters, my Prisma pencils and ATG. I couldn't do anything without these. (I figure my rubber stamps are a given, lol)
ATG. Decided I needed it after I used up 3 smaller runners in one day making some invitations. Love it.
Score Board. I've got the Scor Pal and Scor Buddy, the Martha Stewart and the mini Martha AND the small size Scor-It - and the diagonal insert from SU, which fits in the big Martha board. I like the feel of the Scor Pal the best, but really wish it had 1/8" guides like the Martha boards.
Big Kick. This has got to be one of my tools with the lowest cost-per-use of anything I own. Once I had one, I couldn't imagine being without it. However, it also has one of the highest enabling costs of anything I own - because I am helpless to resist the siren song of all the dies and embossing folders out there.
Tonic guillotine cutter with 12" base. So sweet to be able to slice thru cardstock like buttah and never deal with fuzzy edges from a dull blade. Love it so much that I also bought the 2 smaller sizes - but those I could survive without as long as I have my big one.
I'm casting another vote for the Stampamajig. I use it so often it hardly ever gets put away. I also am really glad I got the scoreboard from Stampin Up! along with the diagonal plate. They're so handy when I'm making cards with special folds.

Expensive things I'm glad I paid for:
I use on every card: Fiskars Original Rotary Trimmer....Scor Board.
I use on 85% of cards: Big Kick....Stamp-a-ma-jig (not expensive)
I use on probably 50% of cards: Spellbinders dies.
I love my cricut !! and just a little more then my cricut is my favorite border punch. since I brought it I been using it on mostly all my projects.. well guess what now im sad because lastnight something in it broke (... somewhere in a thread I read that fiskers provide great CS so wish me luck and hope they can either replace my favorite or at least still make the punch. Im sad without it.
My absolute most favorite thing that is totally worth the money spent (which wasn't a lot) is my Royal Sovereign laminator and the pouches to use with it. ALL of my stamps (clear and unmounted rubber) are stored on panels of laminated cardstock, a la Diane (fionna51). I'm something of an organizational freak and have re-vamped my stamp storage numerous times. I'm still fine-tuning categories, etc., but at least I have the only solution I need as to what they're stored on!
As far as specifically stamping-related stuff, I'm pretty glad I have a Big Shot. I only had a Cuttlebug for a long time, and it's so worth upgrading! Pretty happy with my guillotine cutter, too (Xacto)...
I'm blogging again: random.on purpose.
