Crafty Must-Haves

Well….. I have been busy making all sorts of things, which got me thinking about what are the crafty essentials that are my Must-Haves (apart from the gorgeous stamp sets, inks and papers).  You see, I was making boxes – not very well at first, until I realised I needed my bone folder to make the creases sharp – that simple tool made the boxes 100% better!  But where was my bone folder??….like yours (most probably) it was buried under a pile of UFO’s!
So I organised myself, using Stampin’ Up’s Full Wide Stamp Cases.  These are empty wood mount stamp cases that you can buy (4 for £6.25).  I slipped some colourful DSP in between the case and the sleeve for decoration and then added all the bits that I use the most:
Bone Folder – £6.25
Black Stampin’ Writer - £3.25
Clear Wink of Stella - £7.25
Tombow Glue - £3.75
Fast Fuse - £9.00
Dimensionals - £3.75
Scissors - £9.00
Basic Gems - £4.50
What would you add in your basic kit?  All of the above fits into the stamp cases so it can be easily picked up and taken to my craft club (which, by the way, is on tomorrow night).
I’m not the only one who has been busy, Stampin’ Up have been organising an Online Extravaganza beginning next week (21-28th November).  You will be able to save 40% of selected items and there will be a flash sale on the 21st and 28th November.  I will have more information on the 17th.  Who, knows the above staple items may be on sale to help you build your own craft Must-Haves.
