Sweet Candy, Lynn
With all the different tools and embellishments that I have, my favorite is still the Big Shot Machine and my crop-a-dile.

The Big Shot would be my fav buy from BF - bought it about 3 years ago and LOVE IT!

Amy said...

I love my making memories tool box (with eyelet setter, piercing tool,etc.) that I purchase a long time ago (before crop-a-dile). I still like to use it once in a while instead of crop-a-dile to let out my stress. :-)

Other than that, I love all the selection of adhesives at Ben Franklin. I am constantly buying adhesives, it seems.

Thanks for a chance to win a yummy candy. I will post the blog contest on my blog as soon as I am done writing here.

Aloha and thank you for giving a chance at this prize! I'd have to say that my favorite and most useful tool that i've gotten from BF is my spellbinders because i am ablr to use it in so many ways and for so many things! I am able to make little favor boxes by folding it in half, gift card holders, tags both big and small. The things that i make and use them for is endless!
Thanks again for the chance at this wonderfully sweet prize!

The best crafting tool I bought from Ben Franklin is the Sizzix Big Shot. I love the fact that you can purchase other company's dies and use it with the Big Shot. Also, I love the way you can do dry embossing with the Big Shot.

I can't decide between my 3 favorite things: Big Shot, Honey Bee Scissors and corner punch. They are the best!

Shirl said...

There are just too many "favorite" tools I have bought from Ben Franklin. I like the Coluzzle and all the templates. I recently bought a split key ring pliers and love that too.

I'm going to say the large daubers I recently purchased and the Tim Holt walnut inkpad. Love using them two together. Great candy!

Keala said...

That would have to be my Cutterpede trimmer! I use it constantly, take it everywhere! The prizes are wonderful!

I have been enjoying and having fun with the Big Shot...from using the die cuts & embossing. And now that I've purchased Nestibilities...its added more fun! Dori T.

gl4smom said...

My favorite Ben Franklin purchase has got to be my Big Shot! I love that you can use it with all the different dies and embossing/texture folders.

Brenda said...

My most useful tool is my paper cutter/scorer! If I had a bind it all machine it would've topped the list, but I think Santa's little helpers are still working on getting me one for Christmas... hehehe!

Char said...

My favorite tool is the bead reamer. The hole in the beads are different sizes and this tool has saved me a lot of anguish.

Karen said...

My favorite items are the assortment of beads, backings, and tools needed to create jewelry. My favorite: any glass beads

MamaBugs said...

My most fave crafting item...since I have SO many items I will pick the one I use the MOST. My Ben Franklin Craft Club Card! Saves me money every time I buy something - which is pretty often!

Amanda said...

I love my paper trimmer. I know, its a basic tool, but I use it in so many more ways than for scrapping. I'd be lost without it!

Fay said...

My fave tool would be the Crop-A-Dile or Corner Chomper. Love how strong these are!!

ewilson said...

OMG, there are so many, but the winner is my Big Shot. My granddaughter is known as the girl with the grandma who makes alot of neat treat bags for her teachers and classmates. It dresses my scrapbook pages, cards, and various papercrafts, to fabric embellishments, home decorating, gift giving, it is just too much to list. It's just plain fun to make projects with my granddaughter and the look of joy on her face when I ask her to join me.

Hi,
I think my most useful tool for crafting is the Xyron 150. I am able to use it to put adhesive on ribbon (up to 4 at once) along with adding adhesive to diecuts either on bottom or on top and bottom which opens my ability for adding glitter, flock and such to items.

My favorite thing(s) is the Craft Jewelry tools. The curved edges of the round-nosed pliers make forming loops and curves a pleasure. The heavy-duty cutting tool is great for cutting through hard wires and the long needle nosed pliers is terrific for picking, placing and holding objects. Whatever craft I'm doing, there's something I can use these tools with.

So many things. I love to wander through the store. I am so grateful for the different paper that Ben Franklin has - all the sizes, weights, colors - anything I need for crafts, cards or table decorations. Love the bundles of patterned paper. Can't wait for my 40% coupon to come in the mail.

Kristl said...

My recent favorite craft items are all the various organizers at BF. The Iris drawers for my cardstock and card keepers help keep everything in its place.
Thanks for sharing all the great ideas on your blog!

Believe it or not, it would have to be my bead tray. I love it!

Staci said...

My favorite is going to have to be my fiskars paper trimmer.. I seriously use it for everything. I use to put it away and now it just stays on the desk! I use it almost every day for something!

eunice said...

Ooh, sweet blog candy! My most favorite and most used has to be the Big Shot Machine!

DBK Designs said...

It would have to be the Big Shot. There are so many ways to use it and create a variety of projects.

Bel Adcock said...

My favorite tool has to be the most basic one...my hot glue gun. I don't know what I did before I owned my first one (I must have half a dozen now). I used to get so frustrated waiting for glue to dry. A glue gun gives me instant results!

Blessed said...

We just moved and my things are still in boxes, so I don't know the name of the tool, but my favorite tool is the spiral binding machine. I've had fun making our own spiral bound books!

Lori said...

The tool I use the most is probably my fiscars paper cutter. I use it everyday and always have lots of replacement blades!

harmonyjoy said...

My fav tool in the world is a metal tipped stylus!! It is too useful for too many things! I use it for every project, making crease lines, making little holes, tracing/transferring, the wood handle as a 'bone folder', etc... great tool for beginner crafters who want it all in one
