It's got to be the Big Shot - I use it daily!

Your gift card holder is absolutely lovely Sandi!

Sherry Beeson

Hi, Sandi! Love your tag, and thanks for the visual tutorial!
Great Blog Candy!

My favorite tool I would say is the TABLETOP CUTTER. I use it the most, and it saves me a ton of time!

Have a great week!

First I was going to say the Big Shot is my favorite tool but then I realized it is Stampin' Up!'s amazing ink pads. They are WAY better than any I have ever used. I LOVE them and could not survive without them.
Thanks so much for sharing with us. You are such an inpiration.

Hi Sandi -- thanks for the chance to win some candy -- I would have to say the sponges -- why? I love the sponged look, but I also use the Big Shot daily, so it ranks right up there too! I love it all.

Teresa Hafso

I am giggling because my absolute favorite tool is the Big Shot too! LOL and Merry Christmas!

Pam Hodges

The Big Shot hands down for my favorite followed closely by our punches! Love them too! That Winter Post tag is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing the "how to"!

Elin K.

Most definitely the Ornament Punch. I use it constantly!

Candy Abernathy

Beautiful as always!! My favorite tool is the big shot! Thanks for the chance to win!!Merry Christmas!!


Another beautiful tutorial Sandi. I would say my favorite SU item is my blender pen. I use it daily.

Beverly Kissler

I too say the Big Shot is my favorite. Thank you so much for the tutorial, you are so generous with your talent.

Wendy Hawkinson

I would love to say something original, but I'm going to go along w/ the masses--the Big Shot. I can't imagine trying to create w/o it. How did we manage before it was invented?! lol

I would say Mr. Big but all the "attachments" I woud consider Mr Big as more than one tool. Next on my list would be the punches. They, like Mr. Big, are oh so versatile.

I know this wouldn't count, how about you? LOL!!! Everything you create is beautiful.

I love all the wonderful dies that SU exclusive for my Mr. Big Shot but SU has so many more wonderful things. It would also be so hard to decide between all the papers, buttons, ribbons and inks that are so well coordinated. Thanks for this great tutorial. I have made these gift card holders before but NEVER this elaborate and wonderful. Thanks for sharing this with us.
