I couldn’t live without these dies. These are my most used die, they maybe a bit battered but still work and cut like a dream. I use them all the time on my projects to cut out frames, to make shaped cards, I have even used them to create flowers. 

These are a recent buy for me and they are now invaluable. Before I was using a pin or pokey tool, these are ten times quicker in getting out those little pieces of die cuts. There are four tools in the pack all with different shaped heads to use with all your die cuts..

I wouldn’t use a metal die without one of these little beauties now it really does help to get a clean fresh cut. It also helps to keep your plastic plates free from cutting grooves. I must for any metal die!

This is one of the most versatile stamps I have come across. I have used it for birthday’s, Christmas, bookmarks, or just because cards and it is so fabulous to colour. I love all Sweet Stamps stamps but this is up there at the top with many of my favourites. 

I just couldn’t live without my copic markers. Use them all the time with my stamped images and even on digi’s. These are my most treasured crafting item..

This is quite a new paper pad – Isabelle. Love that you get 5 sheets of each design some are embossed, glittered and double sided so you get lots of choice. The fact that you get more than 2 sheets of a design is a must for me as I like to decorate the inside of the card to match the front. 

I just had to include this ink! It’s the best ink I have used and the colours are fabulous and they match the core-dinations cardstock. This ink is solely sold at Sweet stamps..
