Default What's your favorite item that you purchased

There's a thread listing regrets. I thought it would be fun to see what everyones favorite purchase has been.
I love all my stamps, ribbon, etc, but that something extra that I bought was the Janome sew mini. What's yours?
Let's hear what's your fav, and if you can post a link where we all can get it! Enable , enable! lol

I'd have to call a tie between my scor-pal and my ATG. I use them on every single card I make. I'd call those good purchases!

So I pondered this question, and of course I thought of all of the basics, the tools of the trade so to speak, but I tried to think of something that was really special to me, that I enjoyed the most. Now this is a basic thing, cardstock, but I really enjoy having sooo many different colors to choose from. I feel like I can match about any paper.

My number one is definately my ATG I use it on every single project I make. Runner ups would be my cropadile and fiskers paper trimmer.

Probably my H2Os. I've had watercolours for years, but never used them a lot on cards. I use them a bit more now but I love the H2Os. Hard question to answer, though...

So hard to choose just one! For strictly cardmaking stuff, I'd have to say my Cuttlebug is my favorite. For general art supplies, I love my alcohol markers (I have both Prismacolor and Copic) and my Prismacolor pencils.

Given that I thank DH several times a year for the gift, my fiskars 12" rotary paper cutter. Boring, yes, but useful.

For me it's gotta be my 'bug'! I use it all the time! A close second would be my crop-a-dile big bite - no more hammering eyelets for me now, I used to have to time setting eyelets during the day time and seeing as I'm more productive at night there was always the risk of waking the neighbours lol!

I'm very curious about this ATG gun I keep reading about - think that may have to be a future purchase!

I probably shouldn't even mention that my favorite all-time purchase is my Genesis trimmer, seeing as how it's been so hard to come by...other than that I'd have to say: 1. Copic Markers 2. Wizard and Nestabilities 3. Crafty Secrets stamps.

Definitely my Silhouette. I don't use it all the time, but it does things I could never do by hand, so it is special.

I also love my Cuttlebug, my twinks and my watercolor crayons a lot.

For something that I use just about every time I make a card, its the best bone folder I have ever used - its made of a teflon type material and has such a good "feel" to it.

Bone folder

For me it has to be my stamp a ma jig - I was useless at stamping before I had it - and my ATG gun gets used daily too!

I love my ATG gun...it has definately paid for itself. I love the fact that I don't have to keep replacing refills like I was with the mono adhesive. I don't have a Cuttlebug but I keep reading on so many posts how everyone is nuts over it so I'm trying to decide if that will be my next big purchase (with the Nestabilities of course....I would have to have those, too)...This board is so bad for enabling but...you guys do your research and let others know the pros and cons and also where the best deals are so for that I thank you

If I had to say one thing it would have to be my Big Shot! I love that thing and use it on every card I make. A close second would be my background stamps. I love being able to make my own decorated paper with them.

I never bought stamps that you have to color till I found out about Copics. I love Hanna Stamps and all the accessories that come with Hanna. Now I travel with Hanna images and my copics. I just pick up and go, and color wherever I am. Coloring is very relaxing, and I love it.

Of all the many staming supplies that I have purchased, I have to say my full set of SU Markers is my favorite item. I have so much fun using them, I can't imagine stamping without them.

If I absolutely was restricted to one favorite---it would be::::: the bug. It has really opened the gates of productivity for me. But almost to edge it out would be the ATG gun and tape, and for me---who never has had an art class in my life, learning to use watercolor pencils from a very patient tutor/stamping friend---I think I am in love with coloring now.

My Copics. I love to color so much and these have opened up a whole new world. I hated markers before Copics.

My ATG gun tops the list, only because it's something I use almost every single day. Also on top would be my Scor-Pal (which I've only had a couple of months but already can't imagine not having it), Bind it All, Cutterpede, my SU markers and my ZipeMate, which I might trade in for a Big Shot. (Never saw the need for a Cuttlebug because my ZipeMate works just fine).
