Teal bins

Mini Die-Cut Machine

HoneyBee Stamps, Bee Creative Bitty Buzz Cutter - Die Cutting Machine
Hero Arts, Compact Cutter

I use two mini die-cut machines for 80% of my die cutting. It is awesome and so efficient for all the small critters, sentiments, etc.

Honey Bee Stamps Itty Bitty Cutter: I love that this one has platforms that extend and fold up so it stores away easily.

Hero Arts Compact Cutter: I love the strong suction cups on this so it stays in place on my studio table, and it is so compact it takes very little space.

Spellbinders Platinum Die-Cut Machine.

For larger die cuts I use the Spellbinders Platinum Machine. You can get it directly from Spellbinders here or from Simon Says Stamp here.

Olive & June nail polish

I started painting my own nails again during the pandemic, and I fell in love with the quality of Olive & June. I love that their polishes are high quality, long-lasting (I can get a mani to last 8 days!), and 7 free- so less of the icky junk. The design of the brush makes it easier to paint, and their colors are fab!
