What's your favorite scrapbooking tool/item? (other than cricut)

Just thought it might be helpful for those of us considering all the different items to buy for both paper and digital scrapbooking to hear some recommendations on the different scrapbooking products out there

So what I'm asking is for you ladies to put your favorite scrapbooking tool/item and why you love it. You might want to put what the item/tool is for in case someone hasn't ever heard of it. (other than the cricut of course)

(I'm going to go think on this one and then I'll post mine)

For me, its my cricut hands down! It is so easy to create titles, shapes, etc. You can just do so much and it just makes my creativity flow when I am using it. I make something then I always think of some way I could change or add to it using the cricut.

Other than the cricut...... My atg adhesive gun! It's so easy to use, its really big looking but you get use to it, its not heavy at all. I love that I never have to buy expensive tape runners again!!! Here's a link if you don't know what I'm talking about.... scroll down to the red one(its the 2nd one) thats the one I have. http://framingsupplies.com/3M/TapeDispenserGuns.htm
It dispenses 1/4 inch tape, the one above(yellow) does 1/2inch I think... and you can buy an adapter for the yellow one to dispense 1/4 inch tape.
I buy the gold refills they are acid free, I pay 3.03 a refill and it contains 36 yards(108 feet) of adhesive. The adhesive I was using before was 2.27 for 2 refills and each roll contained 8.75yards(45.5 feet in total). I can say yes the gun was expensive but considering I'm getting so much more adhesive on each roll at almost the same price, it was a fantastic deal. And its super sticky tape too, I know its not going to fall apart years from now.

My favorite tool to use is my cm paper cutter. My other favorite is stickers. I know stickers aren't a tool, but I just can't get enough of them, lol.

My mom got me this paper cutter for Christmas http://www.makingmemories.com/products/tools/trimmer.cfm and I LOVE it! My little blades never made it through more than one project.

I haven't scrapped in a while now, but my favorite things are my Xyron sticker maker, and my Epson PictureMate Dash 4x6 photo printer!!! It's so easy to just print out pics immediately without leaving home, and they look BETTER than walmart prints!

well since so many people put there paper cutter (which by all means i could not live without and i want to get a bigger one when we buy a house) i will have to say something else

there are two things i love.... my fiskars tool taxi (rub on stylus, adhesive reservoir and applicating tip, xacto knife, eraser, and i think a few other things) and my crop a dile... it makes it so easy to use eyelets now and i dont think i'm using it to its full capacity yet.

I had no idea what a crop a dile was before now so I went and googled it. I MUST have one now! I even watched a You Tube video to see how exactly it works. I can't believe I have never heard of this tool before.
