Thread: Can't complete a layout without?? ...

    Question Can't complete a layout without?? ...

    I'm interested in finding out what everybody’s fave items are right now ... mine have be some sort of stitching (partial to Anna's stitched frames), Katie's poked holes, and something just ::needs:: to be stapled down, or it's not done!

    What are your must use items right now?

    Welll, I have used every one of Pattie's templates, I think! I also usually include something felt of hers and at least one of her brads!

    I also find myself using Katie's Grunge Overlays A LOT!

    Katie's staples are the best, too! And anything blue is a must!

  3. I don't think I can do a layout without Katie's krafty papers in some form or another! Also, it seems I'm using something I learned from one of Cassie's fabulous tutorials on every layout!

    I'm feeling the need to stitch EVERYTHING down lately

    Here are a few of my faves...

    Great thread, Kayleigh! These are my go to items~it!

    Lynn's Worn Strips
    Pattie's Felt Hearts
    Katie's Stitching Holes
    Anna's Zig Zag Frames

  8. Currently . . . I can't complete a layout unless I have at least three other, more pressing, projects due within 48 hours. For some reason, that is when I am the best at finding time for a layout "just for me."

    Oh, wait . . . that's not what you were looking for, is it?

    You wanted actual PRODUCTS . . . got it.

    I want to use these on every single page and I have to slap my hand every time. Otherwise, it would be a notebook paper world around here.

    Lately I find myself just having to use a tailed something (sooo happy to see the new tailed journalers!!) and Katie's petite paper flowers... if it is a ribbon, has to be the hemp ribbon or Kellie's ribbon edgers... and 1 paper isn't enough, have to try to blend multiple elements together.. Anna's grafix work wonders with Katie's notebook papers... and um... because Cassie's tutorials have me looking at everything, I am having problems about seeing things as they are but more of what they could be!

  12. like cassie, i'm using katie's notebook paper a lot, i have a ton of pages with Anna's monoblendz origins papers on them, and her stitched frames lately, too. so much to love here!

    What a great thread idea! I have been a button freak lately along with stitching of some sort. I think that I have a frame in every LO that I do too! I want to start using tape more & I need to get some overlays mixed in the bunch.

  14. Katie's frames are a must and I almost always refer to at least one (if not more) of Cassie's tutorials as I work through a page! So many tips and tricks abound!

  15. I find myself forever pulling Katie's Krafty and/or notebook paper packs out . . . even if I end up not using them, I always have them in my bin.





    I hope there isn't an unwitten law saying that a person can only use Krafty paper "X" number of times ... I would be in big trouble!!!!

    Another thread reminded me of my new go to item!!

    Katie's Drop Shadow Style for Elements!! LOVE THESE!!


  18. #18
    When I first started digital I was a simple girl, barely any elements just papers and brushes. Well now I seem to want to keep adding and adding. Namely stitches (anna's and katie's), stitching holes, buttons, ribbons, Im even ready to buy some flowers (gasp), and some more alphas, I am loving alphas. I do have to say that the Krafty papers and notebook paper at least make an appearance during every layout, and if I talk myself out of those, It's one of Jesse's solids. (lov-el-y solids are a fav) OK I am loving Annas distress tools too!

    frames. love making photos look like 'real' photos. katies vintage frames. all of them LOL
    blank journal spots, in their many forms. use for journalling, layering under pics, dates, frames etc etc.
    some kind of messy stitching, like the bit of machine stitching n Anna's homage kit. or her about a boy page set.
    wonky staples. I like my staples wonky like the one in the under the tree kit by katie

    Oh yes, I am so with Brenda on the staples! I *need* some! Only I'm not hinting; I'm begging.

  22. Katie's frames and ledger grid brushes in addition to stitching

    Not a product, but I can't seem to make a layout without using the Edit>Stroke feature to outline photos or pieces of paper...it's like I'm OCD about it. (Kind of like inking the edges compulsively in paperscrapping, which I also do!)

    Products? Hmmm. Krafty Ledger paper for sure...Kellie's Double Dates series, Jesse's Title Lines (heck, ANYTHING by Jesse)...Pattie's Felt Friends usually make an appearance somewhere in my pages...

    Oh, my gosh! Thanks, Katie, I can't wait! Now, were you already working on some or are you doing them just for us? Actually, either way is for us, right?

    I know it's been said before, but you and DD are the best!

  28. I have to second Katie's new drop shadows for PSE. WHAT a timesaver!! I recommend them all over the place. (Mostly so people will notice that there MIGHT be something funky about their drop shadows. Hmm. . . was that mean?) Okay, that being said, please PM me if you think my drop shadows need work!! (How embarrassing!)

    ALSO, which Anna ****** distressed kit and distressed overlay should I buy?? I NEED them!! Give me some recommendations!
