5 Essential Tools for Efficient Crafting

Karen Wyngaard

Ever wonder what tools will make your crafting life easier? There are dozens of tools I use every time I craft, including inks and other mediums, but the following five tools are those I consider absolutely essential to saving me time and frustration.

12-INCH PAPER TRIMMER

Tricia searched far and wide for the best trimmer available that is lightweight AND affordable. The Fiskars 12-inch Paper Trimmer was the clear winner. With its self-sharpening blade, this trimmer is absolutely essential for Assembly Line scrapbooking and/or cardmaking.

GRID RULER

RULER

Keep it all straight with our clear acrylic 3x14 Grid Ruler. It features easy to read grid marks every 1/8th inch. You'll get perfect measurements every time!

BOOKBINDING GLUE

This is the one adhesive you MUST have in your stash. I use our Bookbinding Glue for adhering everything . . . except photos. Acid-free, quick drying, and easy to use. It's nearly perfect in every way.

GLUE PEN

Our new Glue Pen contains our awesome Bookbinding Glue formula, but in a fine-tip pen. You'll love it for adhering small embellishments, delicate die cuts and more.

MOUNT-IT

If you do any rubber stamping, you need our Mount-it Adhesive. It's easy to use, effective and economical. (Each 2-ounce bottle covers at least 20 sheets of our unmounted rubber stamp sheets. I know, I speak from experience!)
