what i'm loving wednesdays 12.2

Phew! Am I the only one who is swamped by holiday preparations? I doubt it. This year seems a little bit extra crazy because of length of the to-do list (how come every time I cross something off, two things get added in it's place??!!?) but hey, I love a challenge and I have some pretty specific goals in mind for this year :)

 But anyhow...
it's Wednesday, and here's what I am loving: Scrap Gadgets Edition.

Who doesn't love a fun new scrapbooking tool? In no particular order...

Cricut



When I used to lived in G-town there was the cutest little scrapbooking store (I miss that place, there is nothing out here like it :-(... hmmm, maybe I should do something about that...) I digress, well that cute little place was where I first used this sweet little machine. If you have never used one, check it out. It provides endless possibilities for titles and die cuts! It is on my list of things to buy, but before I do I'd like to hear from people who have used this vs. the...


 Slice 

 Which do you prefer, and why?


Personal Letterpress

How amazing is THIS?! I am happy just thinking of the gorgeous cards and layouts I could make if I had this beauty!


Zutter Bind-it-all


{find me here}
I've always been slightly intrigued by these, but after seeing the gorgeous journal my blog friend Sharyn made using this binding, I now have upgraded that intrigue to want.


12X12 inch printer

{find me here}
I am a Cannon girl. I adore my Rebel and would feel like I was cheating on it if I used any other printer than a Cannon. Ever since I went to Croptopia last year and got to use printer which prints on 12X12 paper I have wanted one. That being said, I definitely need to do some more research about which ones are best. Though I have to admit that our Pixma printer we have is pretty awesome and it will be very difficult to part with it, not only because of its functional value, but because it was one of my first Christmas gifts from mmb (oh, the gifts you get when you're in love with a computer dork ;-)...trust me, he had to put up with a lot of teasing from his family for that one, but the thought behind it really touched my heart)

So there it is! Five great scrappy tools for your viewing pleasure. I am always on the lookout for new scrapbooking gadgets (I blame it on my super savvy boyfriend, his love of all things technologically advanced has rubbed off on me) so if you've got one you love, or have used any of these I have listed, let me know about them, I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Aww, thanks for mentioning my album. I seriously love my Zutter!! If you get one, you will want to bind everything in sight. I've been very curious about Cricut vs Slice. Let me know what you decide!

Those are all items on my wish list. I've used the Zutter before and it worked really well. Thanks for sharing!
