Best Craft Supplies

Every now and then I do a post about my favourite craft supplies as people are always asking what my favourite (or recommended) card-making and scrapbooking supplies are. 

All of these are available from Stampin' Up! ~ they're truly magnificent and I wouldn't (or couldn't) craft without them. You will find a link to these projects at the bottom of this blog post. Here are my Top 5 in no particular order:

1. SNAIL adhesive 
Absolutely the best paper craft glue on the market and I've tried many glues. SNAIL applies a controlled amount of adhesive directly to your project, sticks fast and is of archive quality - your hands and work area never get sticky. Best for card making and scrapbooking. £6.25/£4.00 (refill)

2. Sponge Daubers
Use these on the end of your fingertips to add a distressed look to any project. Use on stamps or directly onto projects. Also good for stamping circular areas of ink to create an unusual background, or for applying ink to stencils. £4.50 for 5

3. Adhesive Remover 
No-one is perfect! Remove unsightly adhesive and save your project. Works like an eraser and removes sticky glue trails.

4. Stamp-a-majig
I've talked about my love for this item before! A must-have for any stamper - this little beauty helps you position every stamp exactly where you want it. A simple bit of kit that is so easy to use. £11.00

5. Stampin' Scrub & Stampin' Mist
Ok, so I'm cheating here a bit as these are actually two items, but they work in perfect harmony! The Stampin' Mist smells gorgeous - you spray it on to the "wet" side of the Stampin' Scrub and you rub the stamp until it is clean, drying it on the "dry" side of the Stampin' Scrub pad. Voila! You have clean, dry stamps; even the most detailed ones. The plush, black washpads are removable so that you can clean them. Another absolute must. Stampin' Scrub is £15.50 and Stampin' Mist is £4.00 (60ml bottle, then £8.50 for a 237ml refill bottle)
