Most weeks three things tend to be products I have around here, things I have tried and loved or been inspired by. This week I am bringing you three things that are in my shopping cart that I am planning to order, try out + play with.
1. Autumn Leaves inks. There has been positive buzz on internet message boards recently about these inks. I am always on the lookout for good inks (my favorites tend to be from the little cats eye chalk inks + a few colors from Stampin Up – especially an old cranberry that I think was retired). Also just noticed that these inks are listed at 50% off on Two Peas.
2. Fiskars Threading Water Punch. Another tool I have seen mentioned lately is this one from Fiskars. I love scallops and I love circles and I think I am most excited to play with this one of the three.
3. Red Banner Die-Cut Paper from Creative Imaginations. I like die cut papers like this one with nice points and lines for journaling. The point can be used as a directional design device and the lines are great for keeping my journaling in line. Most of the time I have found that I like to cut sheets like this in half and use one on one layout and the other half on another (or on the second page of a two page spread as seen below).
