Item #3 That I Will Never Part With

Yep, a simple stylus. I have not been without at least 3 in varying sizes for 30 years. I first discovered these when carving wood and doing tole painting.
They are great for:

1-Making dots.
2-Scoring.
3-Poking out little pieces from dies.
4-Making a little hole.
5-Picking things up (wrap a glue dot around the tip).
6-Tracing through cardstock.
7-Using on a scoreboard (I don't use the bone folders at all for this).
8-Opening the tip of Crystal Effects.
9-Jewelry making.
10-Lifting small lids.

Stamping Item #2 That I Will Never Part With

Best labelmaker ever. Lots of fonts and perfectly printed waterproof labels for organizing, personalizing, and even for sentiments on cards and labels on photos.

Stamping Item #1 That I Will Never Part With

I am greatly reducing my stamps and stamping supplies, not to reduce my stamping time, but to make it easier to find things, and to really use everything I have.

As I do this, I am finding items I will never, ever part with. This cheap little punch that I paid about $3 for is the first on my list.

This can be a flame for a candle, a leaf for a flower, a raindrop, a flower petal, and a number of other things. I have had this punch almost since I first started stamping and it has been used over and over for so many things.
