Best Overall Ink Pad: Lawn Fawn Premium Ink Pad
This product is a two-time winner, having won in this category last year also. I keep going back to it as my favorite because it doesn’t flood my stamps with too much ink. Plus, it is watercolor and alcohol marker (Copic)-friendly ink that won’t smear.
Best Paper: Ella & Viv Paper Company – Magic Moments
Although the Ella and Viv paper I have purchased is not heavy-weight, I still find it perfect for cardmaking with such vibrant images. Their paper selection is so pretty that I have acutally been framing it! It makes beautiful wall art and also amazing scrapbook pages or wrapping paper for small gifts!
Best Coloring Product: Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils
These pencils are so amazing that this is the 3rd year in a row that they have won in this category! They are very blendable and soft – I just love them! I can always count on Prismacolors to give me the best results!
Best Stamp Set: Prima – Julie Nutting Holiday Bliss
I had heard of Julie Nutting stamps and her well-known “doll” stamps, but it wasn’t until this year that I gave them a try for myself. I can definitely see why they are so popular! I love the particular stamp set I purchased because it included TWO dolls, accessories, and sentiments. A very versatile stamp set that stamps very nicely and is lots of fun to color!
Best Adhesive: Art Glitter Glue Adhesive
I was introduced to Art Glitter Glue by Maymay Helms (with the channel, Maymay Made It). I heard her and other crafters rave about this glue, so I decided to try it for myself. I was pleased with this glue – but as I continued using it, I was so impressed by how strong of an adhesive it is once dry. Plus, it’s very fast drying and a little dab is all you need. I keep reaching for this glue time and time again.
Most Innovative Product/Tool: WRMK Foil Quill
I first saw this product demonstrated on a video from the Creativation craft convention; it is the We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill. I find this brand to come out with very unique and wonderful products/tools; the Foil Quill is no exception. The Foil Quill turns your cutting machine into a foiling machine! Get gorgeous foiled images/text for eye-catching awesomeness!
Most Useful Product/Tool: WRMK Precision Press Advanced
This year, I began using this awesome tool by We R Memory Keepers! It helps me to stamp perfectly and streamlines bulk stamping (think… Christmas cards). If my first stamping doesn’t look how I want, this tool keeps my stamp and paper perfectly in place so I can stamp again until I get the desired look I want. A huge help in the craft room!
Fan Award – Best YouTube Crafter: Kelly Latevola
Last year, I began this new category and the 2018 winner can be found HERE. The winner for this category is chosen by other crafters who voted for their favorite nominee. The winner for this year is… Kelly Latevola!!! I am also a subscriber to Kelly’s channel and enjoy seeing her cards and hearing her fun stories. She specializes in Copic coloring for cardmakers. I have learned so much from her channel. She is hardworking and very inspiring! If you love art and Copic coloring, then her channel will not disappoint. Head on over and see for yourself! Her channel can be found HERE.
Congratulations to all of the winners! Please see my award video posted below. Have a happy, crafty day!
