My Favorite Crafty Products and Resources

This is a new page where I’ll be adding all my favorite crafty things I’ve come across over the years. Check back soon for more!

Adhesives

Adtech Mini Hi Temp Glue Gun

I’ve used this glue gun for years, and on many different projects! This is my favorite glue to use for 3D paper projects because it has a strong and extremely quick hold. I can get things put together super fast – great for when I’m designing and testing new 3D projects. I own both the hi and lo temperature models. Personally, I prefer the hot temp one for most projects (although it requires careful use to avoid getting your fingers burnt!) because I feel the hotter temperature allows more time to work with things before they get set in place.

Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue

This is awesome glue! It’s my favorite for 2D paper projects. It never, ever buckles or warps paper no matter how thin it is, which makes it great for attaching delicate papers like vellum or assembling cards, and it has a super fine tip for applying small amounts of glue on tiny pieces. It works well for 3D projects, also – I just find that it takes a bit more time to set than hot glue. Extremely strong hold on paper!

Aleene’s Tacky Glue

This glue is great for crepe paper flowers! It takes a little more time to set than hot glue, but has a strong hold once dry. It makes the crepe paper wet, which makes it sort of mold together – which works great for flower making.

Papercrafting Tools

This is a great tool for scoring folds into paper projects. It makes a nice, sharp score line. My only word of caution is to press gently and lightly on thinner paper – it is sharp enough to cut through the paper if you apply a lot of force. It fits nicely in your hand, and it’s my favorite tool for scoring.
 
(This is a newer model of my machine, the Cricut Explore Air.) I absolutely love my Cricut! If you are into papercrafting or card making, this is one of the best purchases you can make in my opinion. It may not be inexpensive, but it’s well worth the price for all the things you can do with it and the time it will save you!

 

Tools for Blogging, YouTube & Social Media

(This is a newer version of my camera model – mine is the T3i, which is no longer available.) I can’t say enough good things about this camera! I’ve had it since 2012, and since then, I’ve recorded thousands of hours of video and taken what must be well over 100,000 photos with this camera, and I’ve had no problems at all. The quality is amazing and it would be the first camera I’d recommend to anyone looking!

Zomei DSLR Camera Tripod (Blue)

This has been a great tripod. It’s very lightweight, but also strong, sturdy, and stable at the same time. Great quality at an affordable price! Also, less importantly, but still a big plus to me: the blue color is very pretty!
