Not sure if I can pick just one.

I love Value Pack: Everyday Glitters, designed by Amanda Fraijo-Tobin
there are so many colours included, whenever I want a bit of glitter I head to these first.

Like Valerie, I find it hard to choose but the action I most often go to is Brandy Murry's megalift

Valerie and Hillary already said 2 of the ones I use the most, but another action that I use on most of my layouts is ScrapSimple Tools - Actions: Shadow Layer 6501 PSE. I love that the shadow is on it's own layer, so if you want to tweak it a bit you can.

Love, love, love actions and styles!!!

OH...picking one IS impossible...lol...so pick as many as you would like!

Melanie-I'm not sure I have that style...thanks for pointing it out! Shadows are so important, but I find them difficult to do "on my own"!

Valerie-who can go wrong with glitter?? I need to check and see if I have those. Since I have a new computer, I don't have all my styles installed. I'm just adding them as I need them.

Hilary-I love that action and haven't used it in forever! Time do "dig it out".

I'll link some of my favorites shortly!!

Thanks for your input ladies!

I don't know how to choose! I use the Mega Lift actions quite often. And I love photo effect styles/actions... not sure I could pick a favorite though. After being forced to use Custom Shapes during NSD, I might need to play with those more... so I'll probably purchase a few more sets during this sale.

I don't have a favorite, but I still use ScrapSimple Tools - Actions: Edge It 5001 a lot. There is a PSE version too.
And I love the glitter styles, and the grungalicious styles and just about every style. ;)

I couldn't choose just one, either! I've enjoyed reading this thread, though! I must remember to go through all of them more often!

One "go-to" style I enjoy using and find so helpful is Kerry Veale's Subtle Photos. I am not a great photographer and many of my recent pics come from DD's iPhone, via message, so I often need "help." I always find one of these styles to make just the right difference.
