Definitely a paper trimmer. My hands shake terribly sometimes and there is no way I could do it free hand. And my Cricut, although I could live without it, I choose not too because the possibilities for card-making and scrapping are endless with it. Just the original is good enough for me. I don't need the new larger one.

Besides the basic supplies, my Prismacolor pencils and Versa Mark! I use both on almost every card I make.

Paper cutter, score it, foam tape, glue dots, lot and lots of paper, and all the ink pads!

What is a ATG? I'm sure I could not live without it if I knew what it was..... My paper cutter was my first tool and one that I could not do without. Second is a good pair of scissors. Funny how I have acquired hundreds if not thousands of dollars in tools in the last few years and my cards look pretty much the same. I just don't have to work as hard at it. lol linda

They're made by Marvy Uchida ~ the handles actually squish and move, conforming to your fingers. They have been a lifesaver! I have carpal tunnel and have only had the surgery on my left hand so far.... now I can cut with my right hand and not suffer so much.

You can either get them at http://www.createforless.com or on eBay, do a search for them and you'll see a seller with user ID 7kidscollegefund. If you decide to buy them you won't regret it!

For me, first choice would be my paper cutter.
Then, my water brush (similar to the SU aqua painter).

Then all the things I don't consider "tools" like:
Black Stazon
Paper
Stamps
Ribbon
etc etc etc...

i am now TOTALLY ADDICTED to my Zip n Dry glue as my adhesive. I could never believe that a 'wet' glue could possibly adhere to pieces of paper together without wrinkling.. welll TADAAA zip n dry does not crease or ripple! Also, if there is ever excess on your card, you just rub it with your finger and it 'disintegrates'.. a very yummy adhesive!

My woodware paper trimmer - it has several different types of blades that you can change to give different styles of cutting edges and I love it!! (A bit like the Marvy Uchida one I saw on a scrapbook lounge video)

And my crop-a-dile and my dimensionals and my good pair of scissors and my twinkling h2os and my water brush and my stamps and my inks and my ribbons and my....oh just about everything really!!

On a side note what are perfect layers and do I need them???? How do I use them??

Okay, people, this might sound terrible dopey of me, but I have my perfect layers, and I can't figure out how to use it!! I mean I can figure out how catch the paper on it for the different measurements, but they often seem to be on the left hand side, and I want the cuttting side to be on my right hand side, as I am right handed. And - do you use a rotary blade cutter ( as in for quilting) or a craft knife??? I just can't figure out a usual way to use mine.

As for me, I couldn't give up my paper cutter - as far as tools go. There are many tools I love - my cb, eyelet setter, etc etc - but I couldn't do it without my paper cutter! Of course, multiple stamps, colouring mediums are essential -but they aren't tools - right?

I'd say paper trimmer. I can't cut with a scissor and if I must I can use any glue or other tools. I can improvise but a paper trimmer is a must can't live without.

Up until about 2 years ago, I lived without EVERYTHING! That's right, every single tool that I now own, I lived quite happily without up until that time. BUT, now that I am a papercrafter, I realize that while all of these tools are great and make the creative process so much easier, I don't NEED them, I WANT them. Now that I am a tool junkies, I think the tool that I reach for each and everytime I craft is my papercutter

1. Stampin Scrub/cleaner
2. SU markers

1. My Stampin Scrub and Stampin up cleaner spray. I seriously cannot live without that, neither can my DD7, LOL.

I went to a CTMH class once and the demo actually didn't use the scrubber, even though CTMH carries one (the horror). This was back before they switched over to the acrylic stamps. She was having everyone just stamp off and if they "REALLY NEEDED" to clean them she had baby wipes up at the front of the room. WOW. That was really hard for me to handle, it almost made me break out into a sweat over it.

2. I also found out this past year that I am seriously addicted to the SU markers. I use them absolutely every time and I am getting DD her own set of brights for Xmas, she is just as fond of them. She even huffs now since I taught her how to brush on stamps and she is quite the artist doing multiple parts and colors on stamps with detail even and she is only 7!
