      It’s getting very close to Christmas which means it’s a perfect time to buy ourselves new scrapbook products. I’ll defiantly be buying myself a few new things (or lots?) this Christmas.

      So the question this week is which of your tool/products are your favourite and would recommend others buy?

        Buy latest favourite tool are the Tim Holtz kushgrip micro scissors. I first saw a student using these in one of my classes and she cut a metal embellishment with ease. I brought them straight away and they are amazing, they cut everything, the handles are extra comfy, plus they are excellent for fussy cutting.

        My other most used tool is my paper distresser, I have two, the Prima distress tool which is my fav (if you don’t own one it’s a must have). This works best on thicker papers but not so well on thin papers (e.g. Kaisercraft). So for the thin papers I use the Tim Holtz distress tool, the only down side to this tool is that it is small and I’m always losing it under my mess.

        Let me know more tools I need to buy ?

          I’m always in need for new scissors! Mine are always gummed up.
          I love my Prima distress tool and I’m with you on losing the Tim Holtz distress tool under my mess. Drives me nuts!

          I can’t think of any other tools I need right now.

            I’m agree with Bec the Tim Holtz kushgrip micro scissors is the best scissors ever.

            And my new purchase is the news Finnabair Texture Brush I love it I give you a video of Sneak If you like it to.

            I know that the question is not about the medium, but I leave you a video igh on a new product of Finnabair. I want absolutely too.

              Cindy, I saw the video and hmmmmmmmmmm………..

              Let’s see. Actually, now that I think about it, my most used tool is my pair of Honey Bee scissors. They’re coated, so I can clean the gunk off pretty easily. I’ve always loved them for fussy cutting and I reach for them a lot when I’m distressing. Like Bec, I do love my Timmy scissors for cutting heavier things.
              Of course I love my silicone mat (so much that I’m on my second!)

                Those texture brushes do look interesting. They maybe on my radar.

                I do love my distress tool. I use the same ones as Bec and Ang.

                I use cutterbee scissors like Peggy. Oh and that Heidi Swapp silicone mat is to die for. Nothing sticks to that thing.

                    Cindy I’ve watched those Finnabair video and those products look amazing, I’ll be adding those to my must have list.

                    Kim, I’ve always wondered about the Heidi swapp mats, sounds like I’ll have to invest in one of those too ? although I do love my Ranger craft mat

                      I do love my Prima distress tool and my Basic Grey magnetic mat. Oh and my vintage photo distress ink pad.

                        My favorite tool is the Distrezz it All. Love that thing and use it all the time. I too have the Timmy scissors. Almost bought a new pair because the very tip broke off of one of the blades. I am still debating on the craft mat. I don’t really have any tools on my Christmas list.

                        I did order the mini scrap box in November. It is on back order. grrrrr. I would love to have the clearview scrap desk.

                          I am not thinking of any tools that I need or want! I mostly want ALL of the new Prima stuff they have been showing on their blog though. And, I am considering going to ArtVenture in January before CHA, IF they still have spots available.
