30 for 30 - Scrapbook Supplies

This could also be called: "Or What Karen Might Want for Her Birthday If You Are Inclined To Buy Her Some Scrapbooking Stuff"
Nikon COOLPIX L24 14 MP Digital Camera with 3.6x NIKKOR Optical Zoom Lens and 3-Inch LCD (Black)1. Camera. We do not yet, alas, own my dream camera. We own much like the one pictured. However, any working camera is better than none. (As we discovered the morning Miss Lili was born!)

2. Pictures. Definitely the most important ingredient. Although I have been known to create a page with no pictures (I'm one of those people who saves ticket stubs, receipts, and pamphlets).

Simply K Chloe Scrapbook 12X12"3. Albums. I particularly like the K & Company albums.

Cricut Expression 290300 Personal Electronic Cutter4. Cricut machine & cartridges - I can always use more cartridges (hint, hint)

Pioneer Auto Mounts Dispenser with 350 Photo Mounting Double Sided Self Adhesive Squares5. Adhesives - photo splits or tape runner. Some day: a Xyron. I go through a lot of adhesives.

6. Adhesives - photo corners. These can be decorative or good for vintage pictures.

Ek Success PSPCR01C Corner Adorner Small Rounder Corner Punch7. Corner rounder. Nice to have on hand. I've actually given Philip his own so he will leave mine alone (he uses one when he makes a game prototype).

Fiskars 01-001050F, Patented Triple Track Portable Fashion Paper Trimmer , 12-Inch8. Paper trimmer & extra blades

DMD Designer Printed Scrapbook Paper, 100-Count Package9. Patterned paper - my favorite obsession. I try to follow a rule that I can't buy more unless I make a certain number of pages.

10. Cardstock in neutral, bright, & pastel colors

11. Letter stickers. Another thing I have in abundance and rely on.

KandCompany Elegance Rub-Ons12. Rub-ons

Karen Foster Destination Cardstock Stickers - London13. Cardstock stickers. The Karen Foster brand is always interesting.

14. Ink Pads & stamps. I'm not so much into stamping, but I do have some. I also use ink pads on the edges of photo mats.

Diecuts with a View All-Occasion 12-by-12-Inch Glitter Scrapbook Paper15. Glitter Paper. I have lots of little girls - glitter is de rigueur.

Making Memories Precision Scissors16. Scissors - sharp, small scissors rather than the decorative edge type, although I have some of those still

17. Decorative brads & staples

Fiskars 93807097 Circle Cutter with 2 Replacement Blades18. Circle Cutter. I actually own a Creative Memories version.

19. Punches

20. Vellum

21. Memorabilia pockets - these are how I manage to keep each of the girls' hospital cap in their baby albums.

22. Inspirational books, magazines, & blogs. I wrote a separate post about some of my current favorites.

Sakura Pigma Micron Pen Set #05, 0.45-Millimeter, 6-Pack23. Fine Point pens. One of my most reached for tools.

Sakura Gelly Roll Metallic Medium Point Pen Set, 10-Pack24. Gel Pens. Fun for extra color.

Got Flowers? Bottled Flower Seasonal Collection Assortment-Holiday - Valentine25. Paper flowers. These are cute, even in the jar.

26. Rulers. Measure twice, cut once. Then measure again and mutter under your breath. Just me?

Blumenthal Lansing Company Favorite Findings 4-Ounce Big Bag of Buttons, Multi27. Buttons. Decorative or otherwise.

28. Transparencies. Great for adding layers and depth.

29. Page protectors. I have a shortage of these right now - more pages done than I actually have albums to put them. Crazy problem to have!

30. Organizers to keep all of the above safely stored away.

So, fellow scrapbook enthusiasts? What did I miss?
