PostSubject: These are a few of my favourite things ....   Sun Jul 17, 2011 11:18 pm

I thought we could share some of our favourite scrapping/cardmaking items. My top 10 (or so) recent discoveries that have become fave items are:

1. Starform transfer sheets: are specially developed to transfer remaining negative parts of Starform Outline Stickers onto a workpiece in just one go.
The transfer sheets are made of transparent sticky film to which the sticker parts can be attached. Since the film is less sticky than the stickers, it releases the negative parts easily and therefore does not damage the workpiece. It means that you can use the positive and negative of some stickers, and is resuable many many times, making it very cost effective. http://www.starform.com/starform_pro/pro_sticker.asp?lang=EN&CategorieID=9

2. Co'ordinations dust buddy: is a special muslin type cloth that has been coated with a special residue that picks up stuff like dust and glitter without leaving the residue on your page. It is perfect for cleaning up your page after sanding. It can be cut up making it very economical. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIs2dQ39WTA

3. Trading card sleeves: Yep so it did take me a few months to realise that the plastic 9-hole sleeve that my sons use for their footy trading cards are the perfect size to keep ATC's (Artist's Trading Cards) stored in, if you are like me and collect them rather than using them!

4. Cutterbee Craft tweezers: these are just so handy, and because of the cross-over design the tweezers themselves hold the item in place, rather than the pressure of your fingers squeezing. These are perfect for placing small die cuts/punchies and are just brilliant at placing rhinestones/jewels, although you do need to ensure that you grab them level, otherwise they spring out all over the place, just takes a little bit of practice, but well worth it. http://www.customcrops.com/product_info.php?products_id=232188153

5. QuicKutz quickstik/pick me up stik: does a similar job to the cutterbee tweezers and is like a pen with a sticky wind up tip, that is reusable and easily replaced when no longer sticky. The benefit of this over the tweezers is that it also comes with a plastic point that helps to hold the rhinestone in place while removing the quickstik and the quickstik does not stick to the glue, like the tweezers may do if you are a little heavy handed with glue. http://www.myscrapbookingplace.com/ind-quickstik.html

6. Tim Holtz Craft Sheet: OMG! What a great product. Nothing sticks to it!
The slick, non-porous material withstands high temperatures and repels liquids. It's perfect for use when stamping, embossing, painting, ironing, baking, and using Ranger's Melting Pot. Embossing Powders, inks candle wax, soap chips, hot glue and even solder won't penetrate or distort the smooth-as-glass finish. Any excess melted product, once cooled can be easily peeled off. Clean up is quick and easy, so the Craft Sheet can be used again and again.!
Protect your work surface!
- Use when heat embossing - the Craft Sheet is heat resistant
- Use for all ink applications including brayering, stamping, resist & distressing techniques
- Use with Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks when creating his faux agate technique
- Use for decoupaging and other crafts
- Use to protect surface when using Ranger's Melting Pot
- Use when ironing to protect your ironing surface
- Use when baking shrink plastic or clay to protect baking sheet
I simply use a baby wipe to clean my mat, and everything simply wipes straight off.

7. JAC Paper: I have recently rediscovered this in a whole new way, since getting my cutterbug. It is perfect to adhere smalled punched or cut shapes. I cut a small amount off and adhere it to the back of the paper or card I am putting through my cutterbug so that both the diecut and Jac paper are cut. It is perfect for layered die cuts as well as any odd shapes that need to be adhered. I know of some women who only use JAC paper, instead of double sided adhesive tape, but for straight pieces, I think it is pretty expensive compared to d/s tape.

8. Glossy Accents/Dimensional Magic: basically both the same product, is there anything these cant do? (Not a recent discovery as such, but one of my all time fave products!) http://www.rangerink.com/tips/tips_accents.htm http://scrapdiva-tina.blogspot.com/2011/03/blooms-tips-and-techniques.html

9. Xyron sticker maker: I have both the 150 and 250 and for layered items, or small items to be adhered, these are great as they put an adhesive layer on the back of the item. Can be a little messy with left over residue though you can purchase an Xyron adhesive eraser to remove any leftover adhesive. I tend to use these on diecuts that I have not cut myself (otherwise I use JAC paper) and also on ribbons, as well as a few other items. (Again, not a recent discovery but a well used product). http://www.scrapping2perfection.com/store/WsDefault.asp?One=1312 http://www.xyron.com/enUS/Segments/create-a-sticker.html

10. Permaball Permanent marker: I have recently gotten into using acetate as a base for my cards and these pens will write on the plastic, as well as on metal, glass, canvas, paper and card. http://www.pilotpen.com.au/Products/items.aspx?G=1008126&P=5021456

Most of these products are not available in the S2P shop as yet, and I have tried not to put examples from a shop site, but for some products, this could not be avoided.

What are some of your favourite items?
