Products I used on the projects this past week
I use a lot of different products on the things I make – and yet, I end up using the same things over and over at times! You will have your favorite “go-to’s” when you create, just don’t forget to look outside the box as well!!! Things like floss and ribbon, used for other things, can be used with your paper crafts as well!!! Let’s get started!
The die cuts I have right now, I have used for 18+ years that I can remember! It was the best investment instead of cutting the shapes out by a template! That is great and cost effective if you are just starting, but if you are going further, you need access to a good die cut machine! I personally use Sizzix and Cricut, I will have reviews for both of them coming up! Make sure you check back next month for those! Best thing with the die cuts, you can use them over and over with different papers and themes, and they will come out different every time!
The paper I used is from Stampin’ Up!!! They have amazing paper, double sided and coordinating as well! I also love how thick it is for my projects! My mom’s birthday project was used with their papers, as well as the sympathy cards! If you look at the details around each of the sides, I used 4 different designs! Any papers will do of course, the thinner the paper, the more you need to help back it with cardstock or thicker paper.
I have punches I have bought within the past few years, and some I have had for over 20+. I use punches a lot, and like every item I purchased, it saves me money! Find some that you will USE, and look at various companies for them! I love Stampin’ Up’s punches, Martha Stewart, and EK Success’ paper shapers! I have an older version from 8 years ago, but use them still I do!!!
Other than floss and adhesive, I didn’t use a lot of other stuff on the items made this week! I hope you can see the fun things you can create, by using a few products!
