The One Product I Couldn't Craft Without...

A frequent question in the scrapbook forums: What is the one product you couldn't craft without?  (A similar version asks: What is your one go-to product that you use on virtually every project?)  I don't even have to think about it.  It's this:

Yes, I use my Fiskars trimmer and Fiskars microtip scissors on almost every project.  I love Bazzill cardstock.  (I can't even begin to list patterned paper manufacturers I wouldn't want to craft without).  My Zig Millenium Markers appear on most projects.  I go through ridiculous amounts of Tombow tape runners.  But my #1 can't craft without item is ColorBox Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan.  I use it on almost everything.  

There is something about the Chestnut Roan that works with absolutely everything.  I have a bunch of other colors, but I use them fairly infrequently.  I'd give up every other color of ink that I own before I'd give up Chestnut Roan.

What's your go-to product that you use on most of your projects? 


  1. My pokey stick (aka...paper piercer!) I can't do a project without it!!!!

  2. I've never tried this ink before.
    Mine is probably mists and paint. :)

  3. Punches.......big category I know but I just have to Punch.

  4. That's my favorite color of ink too! I tried replacing it with a brown from Stampin' Up but I think I'm going to to go back to my old tried and true.

    My favorite thing is my centering ruler.

  5. I've never tried that ink. I am actually not much of an ink user. I would probably say letter stickers.

  6. I love my Ranger Distress Inks, but could never choose just one. :-) These days my go to tool is my Donna Salazar Distrezz-It-All by Zutter. I can't believe I was reluctant to buy it. I love to distress and it has saved me many hours of hand distressing!! ~ Blessings, Tracey
