So today I thought we could talk about Lifesavers...no, not the candy kind! I'm talking about the little tools and items you keep close and handy to get your projects done. Those inexpensive, hopefully not taken for granted time saving items that never leave your desk.
Here are my favorite cannot live without tools:
A. Drafting brush - dusts away eraser grit, lint, fibers without leaving fingerprints or smudges.
B. White prismacolor pencil - perfect for marking temporary lines on dark papers
C. Fiskars Soft Grip Scissors - the spring does all the work for me (love these so much)
D. Soft White Click Eraser - the perfect eraser, gets into tight spots, never marks up my paper
E. QuickStick by Quickutz - a poker pickerupper and gem applier (you need this. serious.)
F. Basic Grey Rubon Tool - makes rubons go on like butta
G. American Craft 05 Precision Pen - my favorite journaling pen
H. 18" Metal Ruler - stretches across my entire layout, lines up w/ grid so I get straight lines
I. 22" Black Mat - i will not scrap without it and it's mighty grid power
J. Adhesive Pickup - rubs away adhesive, great for Xyron X to remove excess around shapes
K. Dotto - put some on the back of every layout to hold paper straight to the grid
L. Adjustable Triangle - lets me make sure that items are all at the same angle or perpendicular
What are your go to guys? Got any favorites? Share them and link them if you can.
