Liquid Glue

I love the Gina K Designs Connect Glue! I don’t reach for liquid glue very often so I can get pretty far with one of the big bottle but I almost always have 1 of the big bottles and 1 of the small tubes handy!

My favorite markers to use are copics. I prefer the Sketch style markers. I’m an alcohol marker girl. They’re expensive but they really last a long time and I think they’re fun to use!

Colored Pencils

When I’m not using my copics I’m reaching for my prismacolor pencils. Sometimes I even like using pencils more then markers it just depends on what I’m working on! For pencils I like the premier style.

Hi! My name is Sami! Or Sam. There were 8 different kids in my high school class that had different variations of my name and I got used to responding to pretty much everything. 😂

I’ve always loved being creative and crafting I loved all those kids craft kits when I was little and honestly I still will pick one up from time to time 🙂 My mom took me to a stampin up party when I was 12 and I got hooked on stamping and Cardmaking and it’s been my favorite hobby ever sense!

I started my blog in 2011 when I was in college and my YouTube channel in 2016. Now I mostly focus on YouTube and Instagram but it’s been so much fun! I can’t wait to share some crafty inspiration with you! 💕
