What's your fave tool?

Post by Lorraine on Thu 6 Nov 2008 - 22:18

OK, so what couldn't you craft without? What is your absolute favourite bit of kit. Not your basics like your cutting mats, trimmers and such, but something that you use that maybe everybody else doesn't, unless of course, a basic tool IS your fave. Mr Green

Me, I'm very fond of my Robo. I don't use it half as much as I should considering the price I paid, but I love it.

Rubons are also top of my list. I adore them. Mr Green Words, symbols...any and all.

Chipboard and my Distress Inks are something else I don't think I'd want to be without.

My favourite actual tool, is the Basic Grey rubon tool. One end is like a huge ballpoint pen, that you use to actually rub the rubon (lol) and the other end has a big plastic 'paddle' type thing that you can burnish with.

I use that end for so much more than rubons though. I use it when I'm covering minibooks etc to get a really sharp fold. I find new uses for it all the time and wouldn't be without it now.

I also love my BIA, of course! Mr Green

Defo my Cuttlebug and my Cropadile ... and a little wooden folder thingy which I use for folding each and every thing that needs folding. It was originally for my patchwork, to spread out the tiny seams, but is used every day for something or other. It only cost 50 cents too!!!

Its a toss up between my tweezers (no fingernails so use these for eveyrthing) and my 6" acrylic block which is marked out with a grid on it so you can get things straight, and get even large stamps set out on it. My rotary cutter is my most used thing though.

i coudlnt be without distress inks either, specially not walnut and spiced marmalade

My must have tools are two scalpels, each with different blades in, my small
Fiskars scissors and my tweezers. I can't imagine crafting without any of them.
