I've Been Thinking

It's been a long time since I played along at Sketch Inspiration.  I loved this week's sketch and then after seeing Luzma's take,  I was really motivated to play along.  I used some papers from the new Echo Park collection, "Countryside".

Here's the sketch!

While I was scrapping today, I got to thinking about some of the things in my stash that have given me great bang for the buck.  We all have those things that we just seem to use over and over.  Here are four of my most favourite purchases.  If there was a fire and I could only save four things from the studio, these are those things!!  hee hee  Well, I guess I would be saving the pups first. ;)

The "Storybook" cartridge for my Cricut is my all time favourite, most used cartridge.  It has been worth every penny I  paid for it.  Some other cartridges seem to sit and gather dust.  :(  My Tim Holtz mini stapler still makes me happy every time I decide to place a little staple in just the right spot.  I truly believe that I will use up those 1000 plus staples that I purchased.  ;)  My Martha Stewart "seal" or "sunburst" punch needs to be taken away from me!  I rarely do a LO where I don't end up punching some of these and tucking them in somewhere.  Lastly, my Martha Stewart monarch butterfly.  It may sit unused for the chilly months but as soon as spring is in the air it just seems right to put butterflies on anything and everything.  What are your "go to" items?  I'd love to hear about them.

Before I go, I just wanted to share some new CHA peeks that I am drooling about.

New Basic Grey "Picadilly".  Yummy and onto the wish list it goes!

These two wonderful new Studio Calico lines!!  I love everything about Studio Calico!!

If you would like to keep up on what will be hitting our shelves in the early fall, check out this link.  Knowing what is out there makes it less overwhelming at the LSS.

Happy Scrapping!!  Jen :)
