My Favorite Products

I am constantly asked, what are my favorite products and where do I get them.  So here is where I will post the products I love, and include a link to where I bought them.  Being that I am a Close to my Heart Consultant and a Cricut Product Expert you can expect to see lots of products from those companies, because the reality is those are the products I love and use.  But I will be posting other items that I use as well.  This will be an ongoing listing of items so check back often to see what I have fallen in love with now!  

To start off my most favorite item that is in my crop room are my Cricuts.  I have 6 of them.  Personal, Expression, Explore, Explore Air and Explore One and Explore Air 2.  While I use them all, my go to machine is my Explore Air 2.  But only because it is sitting on my desk where I can easily access it.  The convenience of having it connect through bluetooth with my laptop, my ipad and now my iphone makes it the one I turn to.  This machine does so much more than just cut letters out of paper that is for sure.  I can create almost anything I need with it.  If you need help using yours, or want to see what it can do, join my Facebook Group - Cricut Explore & Design Space,  and you will be amazed at what the women in this group create.  Plus get some help if you have questions as well.  Order your Cricut Explore Air by following this link

Wink of Stella Pens by Zig!!!  I love these pens.  They add just a "wink" of glitter to your project.  I have used them on things like stars, cupcakes, words, name it!  Anything you want just a little hint of glitter on.  These are no mess pens.  You use the easy brush applicator to paint it on your project.  The water dries and you are left with glitter.  Comes in 3 colors. Gold, Silver and Clear.
You can find them on Amazon by following

12x12 inch - 30 sheets of Assorted Glossy Colors of Permanent Adhesive-backed Vinyl - I LOVE this set!  Great vinyl that I have used for all of my permanent vinyl need.  Oracle 631 (like Cricut Vinyl) is non permanent. Good for the walls in your house, etc.  This is Oracle 651.  Permanent!  Do not use on walls, but great for cups, car windows, etc.  Anywhere you want your design to stay put.   Great price, fast shipping.  Order yours by following this link.  Don't forget transfer tape!

Cricut Cutting Mats!!  You can never have to many cutting mats.  I am not a fan of re sticking mats, it just seems like its more trouble than its worth (and it can void the warranty on your machine).  After a day of using my mat, or just when it starts to get not sticky I wipe mine down with unscented baby wipes and let them dry before placing the cover back on.  Works like a charm.  Order your mats by following this link

Sizzix 657900 Big Shot Cutting/Embossing Machine with Extended Multipurpose Platform, Powder Blue/Teal 

After lots of back and forth, and not knowing which one to get, this is the embosser I bought.  I love it.  My Cricut is my go to machine for all cuts, so I didn't foresee myself using the thinlets or things like that, but I wanted the option to do everything in case I changed my mind.  Which I am known to do from time to time!  You can order this lovely Right Here and get free shipping from Amazon!

Liquid Glass from Close to my Heart

This is a must have for any craft room.  I use this all the time.   Not only can you use this as an adhesive for your base and bling, use it for those small hard to stick area as well.  It dries clear and it won't fall off.  Apply a bead on top of letters or other stamped images to give it an embossed look, or add a little twinkle to the eye of that puppy dog you just stamped to make it stand out.  The possibilities of this item are endless.  At just $6.95 a bottle (that last a really long time!) you will wonder why you did't have it sooner.  Order yours by clicking here

I love my Xyron!!  I use this for all my small hard to stick items.  Easily make anything a sticker!  Comes in a variety of sizes but this is the one I use the most,  You can order it by clicking here to go to Amazon.

Refill cartridges are easy to replace.  Just slide the old one out and pop the new one in!  You can find them here also on Amazon.
