Quick Tip Tuesday


Hello every one I am Pam MacKay and this is my first post for Quick Tip Tuesday.  I have been teaching card making for at least 10 years and I always get asked by my beginners what suppiles they should buy to get started.  So other then a fabulous Cricut Machine here are my most favorite supplies for beginners with reference to some of the companies names:
1.  A good pair of scissors - Cutter Bee or Fiskers 
2.  Tape Runner - Ad Tech Permanent Bond or Paper Studio Glue Runner
3.  Tote Bag - Personal Preference
4.  Glue Dots - Glue Dots (mini and medium)
5.  Fast Drying Glue - Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive or Zip Dry Paper Glue
6.  Glue Pen - Zig Fine Tip or Martha Stewart Fine Tip
7.  3D Foam Squares - Paper Studio or Recollections (small and large)
8.  Watercolor Pencils - Derwent or Prismacolor
9.  Blender Pen - Marvy Le Plume Blender or Stampin Up (These are used to blend your watercolor pencils.
10.  Paper Trimmer - Fiskars or Martha Stewart
11.  Sharpie - Fine Tip black marker
12.  Needle Nose Tweezers
13.  Black Stamp Pad - Memento Tuxedo Black or Tim Holtz Black Soot
14.  Stamp Cleaning Pad with Cleaning fluid - Stampin Up or Ranger
15.  Variety Pack of Card Stock - Paper Studio or Recollections

I hope you find this list helpful but be warned once you start paper crafting it is very ADDICTIVE!!! Happy Crafting!! Pam
