Faves of 2008 and more

So as I was cleaning up my stamping space for the New Year I was looking at the things I don't ever use and the items I use all of the time. My fave craft items of 2008 were...
Scor Pal
ATG 714
PTI ink pads, card stock and ribbon
PTI Flower Garden stamp set

SU Scallop Circle punch
SU scallop border punch
SU Bella Rose DP
A2 envelopes
Scotch Double stick tape
Tombo Multi

Items that did not rock my crafting world...

Nestabilities Dies, Why? I think it is because I use my Regular Sizzix with them and I do not have much luck with them cutting on the first few tries. They do work with the Sizzix just not very well.

SU One of a Kind punch, hard to line up the flowers correctly and when you do get them to punch they fly all over the place.

What is on my list for 2009....
ATG tape refills
Scotch Double sided tape
Tombo Multi Adhesive
A2 envelopes
Anything PTI
I won Flower Frenzy stamp set from PTI that will be in the mail soon, YIPPEE!
Copic Markers
Marvy Clever Lever Punches
Cricut Expressions
Cricut Cartridge (Boxes bags and tags)...those who know me best know I can't wrap a package to save my soul this would be the best investment of the year and beyond!!

I would love to hear your faves and your want lists...

Happy Stamp Day!

Well, my Fav is my Sizzix Big Kick and all the dies that I have!! I also love my RubiCoil binding machine.

My wishlist is exactly that... the two things I think I want are expensive. I want a Wishblade and I think I want the "My Story" thermal binding machine. I think I need to see a finished product using it before I can make my final decision to put it on my want list or my "I think I want" list!!! LOL

Sara I have a suggestion that may help with the Nesties and the Sizzix. You may have already tried this, but what you need are the Sizzix adapters. They are flat square pieces of black plastic, they come in a pack of 10 M's doesn't have them, I had to order mine on line. So it goes, CS, Nestie ridge down, black adapter, and squeeze. i have had no trouble getting my dies to cut the first time.

Great lists Sara! My favorites off the top of my head are copic markers (who knew) and palette inks (I hardly touch my SU inks anymore). Oh and I love my Nesties!
Things I don't use or like: SU ink, some of my punches don't get love.
Part of my 30=60=90 challenge is to really note my go to items. I feel like I waste money on things that collect
I"ll stop rambling now...have a great day!

I am also having trouble with my nesties and the Big Shot. I guess I need some of those adapters also. Actually, I don't have wants on my list because of DH's lack of a job and my fear of being homeless. So, I will make do with what I have.
Oh, did you end up getting your own Cricut, or are you using your sisters? You have done some fabulous things with it.
