What's One Thing in Your Stash....

Post by lissahope26 » Thu Oct 15, 2020 5:07 pm

*What's one thing in your stash that you have used for years?  My ol' reliable is Bazzil In Stitch'z.  I bought the kit when QVC sold it eons ago.  I use it now for all my hand sewing.  I wish they still sold the thread.  I use regular cotton thread now.

On the flip side of that, what's one thing you wish would make a come back?  What's one thing that could go away and you would never miss it?

I have a Making Memories sanding block that I love and use frequently.  I wish I knew where to get a new one that worked as well. 

BASIC GREY....I would love to see them make a comeback.  I truly miss their paper collections.

I think washi tape could go away and I wouldn't miss it.  There are some awesome tape out there and I have quite a collection, but rarely use it.

I love my Cricut and use it almost every time I scrap.  I also would like to see Basic Gray come back - loves their paper.  One thing I would probably would not miss much are shape punches (other than circles). I never really use them, only border punches.

I use my Doodlebug Rub-On Transfer Tool on practically every layout.  It has the stylus on one end and a little scoopy spoon on the other end.  I rarely use rub-ons anymore, but I use stickers and Thickers all the time and I use the spoon end to lift them off the paper.  Lots of times my fingers bend the sticker or Thickers, so the tool lets me shimmy them off safely.  I prefer it over tweezers.

I wouldn't miss sequins.  I'm not a "glittery", "shiny", "sparkly" gal, so they are not for me.  I've used them twice and learned I just don't have the patience for them!

Oh, and one thing I wish would come back is the "Got Flowers?" milk bottle flowers!  I LOVED those!  I loved that they were grouped by color and theme, and you got soooooo many.  I miss those.

I'm another Cricut girl! Love my Air 2 and how I can upload my own files.

I am a huge Basic Grey and miss it dearly.

I still love using my circle Coluzzle.  I use it frequently when I need to cut out a circle. It is fast and quicker than a die or the Silhouette.  

I miss Basic Grey too!  Although some of the new Vicki Boutin reminds me of them.  

I could do without Washi and sequins.  I do have some of both, but rately use either!

My Silhouette is my favorite, 2nd favorite is my ATG gun.

For a comeback, Sassafras had a page that was a punch out or cut apart flower that you folded to give it dimension. Of course it was shorter than 12 inches but I loved how it looked. I was in a class that had it after Sassafras was already closed. So I was never able to find another like it. I wonder if any other company would be able to come up with something similar. I could see a row of shells, or pumpkins so many possibilities. It could be a cool signature piece in a collection. American Crafts are you listening???

I could do without snaps and eyelets. I don’t know if I ever used snaps. But I have recently used a few eyelets just because a friend mentioned them!

Great conversation starter!

I saw Shimelle use the foldables from Sass. I thought it was gorgeous on her page. So I know what you are talking about.

My Quickutz die-cutters, I have the Squeeze and the Epic for many years now and I still use both of them all the time. 

Like many of you, I would bring back Basic Grey.

The thing that I would be happy to have go away are mists. I never got them to come out the way I wanted them to and then the nozzle dries up.

I never had an expression but I do have an explore.  It comes in handy.  Right now I'm upset with it because it's tearing my cardstock when I cut.

I would not miss washi either.  I have yet to grasp the appeal.

I love my electric Big Shot that I bought from QVC years ago. So much easier than the ones you need to crank. Also easier to use than my Silhouette.

Like many others, I would love to see Basic Grey make a comeback. Luckily I have hoarded lots.

Ribbon - I have so much and they look pretty stored in glass jars on my shelf but I never use them.

I have that tool and what a great tip to use the other end for stickers and Thickets. I’m going to give that a try today.

One of my original purchases over 20 years ago.... Creative Memories Cutting System.  I actually still have the original blades that work awesome!  I do have a new set on standby.  

Melissa ~ you posting about the Bazzill stitching... reminds me to pull that out and use it!!  

I bought this and thought it was going to be great... now it sits in a drawer:

I'm not sure what I would like to make a comeback because I still have a lot of it in my stash, lol.  Basic Grey would be awesome to come back!

This could hit the road as it is not as precise as I would like:

One of my favorite original purchases is a pair of Honey Bee scissors - the ones that are coated so nothing will stick to them. I use them often and love how I can cut through stickers or paper that I've already used the ATG on and they just cut right through!

One thing I wouldn't miss would be washi tape.  I've never been a fan - and although I love the way it looks, I can't make it work for me.

One thing I wish would come back (other than October Afternoon and Basic Grey) would be these things called Flip Flop Fasteners by Destination Scrapbook Designs.  It's this little clear sticker things that allow you to make pictures, etc flip up.  I will try to add a picture later.  I love using them and am down to my last half a pack!  I'm hoarding them for my December Daily!

I have the Creative Memories cutting system too - with and extra set of blades. I use it mostly for circle cuts but have the ovals and other shapes too - including the large circle.  While I have a Cricut (original) and many cartridges It is a pain to drag it out, set it up and use and then pack it up again. Someday I will use it again. In the meantime I have lots of alphas that need to be used up.

Ribbon - I would not miss it. I usually use it only on cards. Or washi - I have quite a bit of it but don't use it - I forget about it. I do use it to seal the envelopes I make for my cards.
