The Best of the Basics

Starting out in this hobby can be expensive! I am a firm believer in using quality products. I feel that if I am going to spend the time creating something, I want the end result to be worth the time and effort. Investing in one or two quality products rather than a bunch of cheaper alternatives really will save you money in the long run.

You can benefit from all my trials and experimental purchases. In this series I will share what I have found to be my ‘tried and true’ crafty tools, cardstocks, inks and accessories that are now permanent fixtures in my craft room. Even better, I will also include where I can, where you can purchase these products in New Zealand.
