a few of my favorite things

I thought it would be fun to take a pic of some of my favorite scrap finds from this year. So here is the list: My Basic Grey magnetic mat (could not scrap without it), the glitter is from Doodlebug-great colors and Stampin' up-the best super fine glitter. I really like playing with the Prima watercolor papers, the little itty bitty flowers, and I adore their chipboard alphas. My new favorite punches are from Martha Stewart-the bird and the mini tag, and my scallop circle and oval from Marvey. I am really addicted to acrylic stamps, but the ones I keep reaching for are my Autumn Leaves swirls, my little bird/butterfly set from Sassafras Lass, and my date set from Three bugs in a rug. The wired pom pom trim is from an online store called PaperValise. I love all of the new Noteworthy line from Making Memories but especially these little journal notepads. The Versafine has been around for awhile but I only discovered it this year and it is the best for acrylic stamps, gives such a nice crisp image. The paint daubers from Ranger - so cool to use. The love elsie chipboard buttons-I can't seem to stop hoarding these! One tool I highly recommend is the Basic Grey file set, every scraper should have one of these! Another item I seem to not be able to get enough of are the Basic Grey buttons, the colors and variety of sizes are so perfect. Of course any and all thickers. The spools of thread-so great with the buttons-are from Martha Stewart. Daisy D's rub-on stitches look so real. The Tinkering Ink hand lotion came with one of my Cocoa Daisy kits and it is so awesome - I can use it and start scrapping with out greasy hands. The Hambly woodgrain overlays-I especially like the cream. That is pretty much everything! To be honest - this is a short list, I have a ton of favorites, but these are the ones I find myself reaching for all the time. Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorites of 2007 are - I would love to know!

My favorite thing that I bought this year is the Revolution tool from Quickutz. I love being able to use both the 2x2 dies and the 4x4s. I also love the Making Memories trimmer. A little pricey for my budget but I love it! And I am in love with the Bo Bunny bare naked chipboard binders. Great looking and easy to use. Thanks for the picture!

Besides everything on your list? I love my cropadile and Making Memories precision trimmer. I also just discovered the joy of the Martha Stewart baker's twine for stitching and tying on buttons.
Thanks for sharing your list!
