10 things I can’t craft without | Art Journal Edition

There are great sales coming up and I though it would be fun to put together a video of the 10 things I can’t craft without. When it comes to Black Friday I tend to stay away from the trends and stock up in products/tools that I can use again and again though out the year. Talk about great value for money! Now is the time to stock up on glue, paints, inks, sprays etcor to get that paper trimmer and die cutting machine you want!

But on todays video I focus mainly tools and mediums. So I collected 10 things that I have been using for years and can’t make an art journal without.

I am not going to share stamps or dies… these come and go in my studio… but the products below are always there, on top of my desk!

You can watch the video below or at my YouTube channel

    Thank you for sharing your strategy for shopping the sales at this time of year!! I never thought about shopping like this before and it makes such good sense to me!! It’s easy for me to get lost and confused with all the sales that I sometimes shut down and don’t shop — I get overwhelmed and confused pretty easily. This strategy, however, would make taking advantage of sales much more manageable. Thank you so much, Vicky!!
