What's in your scrapbooking storecupboard?

With school report work piling up I haven’t done a lot of scrapbooking lately (other than my DT work) so I don’t have anything crafty to blog about. I also haven’t done a lot of cooking…
So there we were out for dinner tonight (Me & Mr H the scrapbook widower) and conversation turned to what I would be blogging about. We had been talking about our grandmas and how they always kept a well stocked store cupboard ready for baking, containing flour, sugar, currants, pie fillings etc. This is not something I do since Tesco is literally round the corner from my house. Just think if I had Mel & Jill’s shop just round the corner – then I wouldn’t need to keep my well stocked scrapbooking store cupboard!! So Mr H proceeded to tell me what he thought the contents of a well stocked scrapbook cupboard should be – here is his top ten…
1. Lots of Basic Grey (the only paper he knows the name of)
2. Those sticky letters (he means Thickers)
3. Glossy accents
4. Tim Holtz distress ink pads
5. Coloured buttons
6. Black fine liner pen for fake stitching and journaling
7. Thick heavy duty card (he means chipboard)
8. Jars of flowers (he means Primas)
9. Bits of ribbon from Mel
10. No more nails - well you have to have glue(my guilty secret is out!?)
Not a bad selection given that he’s not a scrapbooker…or is he? He does come to ATDML retreats whenever he can and he quite often has pizza boxes delivered…
So what would be your scrapbooking store cupboard top ten?
