Camden Town Collection ...

I just love the freebie with this months Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine, the Camden Town Collection by Crafters Companion. I've made several cards already from the free papers and find they match up with quite a few embellishments I already have in my stash.

They have a lovely summery feel to them, don't they!

Crafting Essentials ....

What are your crafting essentials? For me it has to be double sided tape (in different widths) and my trusty X-Cut guillotine. I won it in a draw years and years ago from Docrafts and it still cuts clean and sharply.
Over the years it has been knocked off the table and bounced several times and had the handle grip replaced, but it is still something I use for every single card I make - you just cannot cut a clear straight line with scissors!!

A small dent in the stash

I've had this paper sitting at the bottom of the pile for a very long time - at least 5 years, so I'm glad I finally got an idea of how to use it!  I find the larger patterned papers difficult to accommodate and prefer smaller regular patterns.
