  1. I don’t have a lot of tools, but love my paper trimmer and smaller items like my tweezers and scissors. I am however, getting the MISTI for Christmas!! I can’t wait to try it out!

  2. I love watching all your videos using the Misti and your die cutter, but I haven’t purchased either one yet. I rely on my handy Fiskars trimmer almost daily! I took my old one (no wire) to school. I never thought to use my bone folder with my trimmer. Thanks for the helpful tip!

  3. Thanks for everything you have shared. I think my favorite tool would be my cuttlebug cutter. It is small and portable.

  4. I am totally smitten with my little Sapphire cutting machine from Spellbinders. When I saw it, I thought it was so cute but why would I need another machine? This is my go to piece as I use a lot of small intricate dies and this makes cutting them a piece of cake. I broke mine-my fault totally for using the wrong plate, and I bought another one within a week. Thanks for all you’re great wisdom that you’re so kind to share.

  5. Love at the first sight with the big shot, get broken after 3 months I’ve buy it…. fix it and still doing great job together!!!

  6. The Misti tool is going to fly off the shelves after this video! Thanks for the giveaway and I can’t wait to use some of these tools myself!

  7. I love my Fiskars trimmer. I did have trouble with my wire and I contacted Simon Says Stamp where I bought it and they immediately replaced without any questions. I also love my Misti tool. It is great when you are making several of one type of card like for Christmas. The best part is how it helps you to stamp on die shapes. It really bugs me when they don’t line up exactly and this tool has made it perfect for lining up every time. Thanks for the info!

  8. I have lots of tools I couldn’t live without, but I guess my favorite is my Vagabond. It’s the most expensive crafty tool I’ve ever bought, but worth every cent. It’s soooo much better than the old Cuttlebug.

  9. There are so many tools that are my favorite, but if I had to choose one, it would be my big shot. Thank you for this video, it’s really informative and you have done an awesome job as well!

  10. My Teflon bone folder. I bought this ages ago. I make lots of cards and really appreciate the crisp and spotless folds!

  11. I didn’t realize till I watched your video how many tools I could not do without in my craft room. My favorites would have to be my Ek Success tweezers and powder tool, my Fiskars trimmer and my MISTI. But there are so many other valuable tools on my desk.

  12. I love your videos Jennifer, they are so informative and helpful because I’m relatively new to this genre. Thank you so much Jennifer!!!

  13. First of all a must have is my big shot… but i love my misti… especially when making the same card again…and again…. and again….

  14. After seeing you use the Fiskar’s trimmer I knew I had to have it. I love that it has an arm that expands out for larger paper and the wire guide has been so useful for me. I also love the reverse tweezers. And I can’t do without my Spellbinders Tool ‘n One. It has a little spatula tool, a piercer and best of all a brush that helps get the paper out of the die.

  15. My favorite tool is the EK Success tweezers. I have also used and like the Cutterbee tweezers. Thanks for all
    your helpful videos!

  16. There are only a few of these tools that I don’t have. I have used your recommendations over the years and have not been unhappy with the choices. They have all helped me with my paper crafting in many ways. There were a few you mentioned that that I don’t have and I will consider buying in the New Year. I know I’ve said before how much I enjoy your videos. They are so creative and helpful and appreciate that when you recommend something you also mention another maybe less expensive way you can get the same effect. Thanks for sharing your creativity and I pray you have a wonderful Christmas and a very blessed New Year.

  17. I just got the new We Are Memory Keepers Punch Board Envelope Maker and love it! I got it for only $20 thanks to your link. I really love it! Thanks so much for your recommendations!!

  18. I really have so many that I could not do with out but I guess I could not make a watercolor card( which is my favorite medium) without Ranger Watercolor Paper, water pen and watercolor pencils. I also use my Misti when I water colored most of my Christmas cards this year and it helped so much making multiples. There are so many wonderful tools out there it is very hard to choose. I love them all and wish I could have them all, I do have most all of them.

  19. Hero Arts heat gun would be on the top of my list. Very very close second would be the Teflon Bone Folder.. I’ve always wanted a cutter like the one Tim Holts has. Love your My Favorite Crafty Things videos!

  20. Dear Jennifer & fellow Crafters, forgive me because I put down the wrong terminology in my reply. I wrote embezzlement plate and meant embossing plates. Hopefully I got this term correct now.
    All of this is so new to me and Jennifer you and your videos have been such an impression to me.
    However, like I wrote previously, I love the big shot because I get so much reward from the extra embellezzments that you can cut out. The best part though is when you take a plain sheet of paper and rumor though the big shot with an embossing plate and add some Tim Holtz glitter and you have a magical piece of art!

    God Bless all and a Very Merry Christmas
    Love,
    Claudia 🙂

  21. Thank you so much for your very informative videos.
    I was finally able to get a Fuse Tool and it’s my new favorite tool. I’ve used it for shaker cards and more.

  22. My favorite new tool is the MISTI – especially since I was able to use it to help me make my holiday cards and christmas gift note cards. What a HUGE time saver!!

  23. Probably my favorite tool is my Big Shot. I have and use a lot of other tools – still looking for the perfect paper cutter!

  24. My favorite of all times is my Sizzix Big Shot and all of Tim’s stuff I’ve been able to try. Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. I love my fiskars paper trimmer and a close second is my cuttlebug which sat in the cupboard for way too long and is now use on most of my cards
