Must Have Crafting Tools

This magic in my craft room doesn’t happen on its own – Even the best creator needs a little help sometimes!

To make things easier to find, items listed here have a link to the site of the manufacturer, or where I purchased it from, or both. This should save you time from searching for the specific items yourself.

Disclosure: There are some Affiliate Links listed on this page, but these are all tools or products I use on a regular basis and probably have at least one blog post where I use them. I don’t put anything on this page that I haven’t personally used, and therefore I highly recommend all these products.

 

My Most Used Crafting Tools and Products:


Cricut Maker

My New Cricut Maker on my desk. LOVE it!

Cricut® Maker

Yep. Had to put this first. My current owned model is the Cricut® Maker (they compare the models available on this link). About half of the stuff on my blog is done with my personal cutter. Love my Cricut! All of my files in my SVG Shop are compatible with Cricut’s Design Space.

Painter’s Pyramid by Hyde®

Love these little suckers! Before I found them, I used spray paint lids. They work for heavy furniture or a simple frame. I’m amazed what they can hold and when you’re done they stack up small for storage. I think everyone should have a set. Or two. These Painter’s Pyramids have a locking system you can paint odd shaped items easily. (Affiliate link included through Amazon and also the manufacturer link to read up if you choose.)

 

 

 


 Armour Etch® – Glass Etching Cream

I’ve been using this for close to 10 years I think. I cut vinyl templates with my Cricut® and etch on wine glasses for weddings, as gifts, to sell and more. It’s so easy to use and the bottle forever! I apply mine with a popsicle stick. I purchased my Armour Etch Cream at my local Michaels and used my coupon, but I’ll include a place you can buy it online as well.

 


 

Creative Market – Font Mania!

If you love fonts like I do, you will want to check out Creative Market. I have added them here mostly because I shop here often for my blog and for my graphic design job. Or sometimes I simply just browse the site when I need some inspiration. Love everything about this site. Easy to use. Easy to install the items. And easy to get lost on there for hours, so be careful! This blog website design (Oleander) was purchased there too.

 


LOVE it – Wouldn’t design without it:
Adobe Illustrator

I create all my SVG cutting files with Adobe Illustrator. I’ve been a graphic designer since the mid-1990s and have been using it almost this whole time. If you want to create cutting files it’s a must-have tool. The monthly plan is great to keep you software up to date and bug free!

Get Illustrator as part of a Creative Cloud single-app plan for just US$19.99/mo
