I'll have to check this out! Thanks for the info.

I agree with using reinkers on the mini uninked cubes. I purchased them to create my own Distress Oxide mini pads using the reinkers and they work just fine.
There come in a variety of sizes as well.

I have been reading, and enjoying this thread. I totally agree with embossing powder...there is a shelf life to that product...don't know what length it is, but I have a few little jars from quite awhile ago, and they don't melt like the newer ones. I have a tool that has lasted at least 12 years, possibly more, with daily use...my little orange Fiskars guillotine 8" paper cutter. As I was an elementary teacher for 35 years, I learned the ins and outs of a guillotine paper cutter....it is the best if you take the time to learn the idiosyncrasies of it. The newer ones are self-sharpening. Mine is as sharp as it was when I bought it. I also have a 12" cutter (don't know the brand) for larger paper, but the little Fiskars sits on my desk 24/7. It has been amazing.

Un-inked pads
I am so stoked you wrote about this? Are you using the foam uninked pads? I am wondering if we could use Ranger's Cut-n-Dry foam pads to make our own Oxides.

I was pleasantly surprised the other day when I went to use some embossing powder that I had custom mixed. Years ago I mixed silver and glitter silver together for a more subtle look, but I hadn't used it for a long time. I tried it, and it worked great! It looks like they were both Stampendous.

Most loved-
Big Shot- I use this all the time
SU ink pads- great quality
LOVE Daniel Smith watercolors- beautiful colors and fun to use
Zig markers - I love watercoloring with these.
Distress Oxide inks- blend so nicely
Tim Holtz stamping platform


Disappointing-
The Cricut (I just never embraced it),
some washi tape is so hard to get a single solid piece its not worth the time,

Glue gun- too large and hard to finagle lol
eyelet setter- very little use out of this
All papercutters- I am still on the quest for the perfect cutter!

Fun thread!
