Projects from Tools Class

CRIMPER: The Bride and Groom cards were a big hit - and so, so simple. I kept a couple packs of Blush Blossom cardstock when it retired and used that in the bride card, but the new In-Color Blushing Bride would work too. The pumpin cards were examples of different styles of crimping - the one on the left is crimped only part way up the front, and the black ground is crimped one way, then turned and crimped the other.

AIR SPRITZER: This tool is a bit of a challenge, but once you figure it out, it creates some nice effects. Placement of the marker and continuous movement is key.

STAMP-A-MA-JIG: I can't live without my Stamp-a-ma-jig! Those who had never used it are total believers in it now too. I designed this simple card to demonstrate the ease of placing words into a small box.

CROP-A-DILE: We had fun with this tool! I showed how it punches through just about anything - cork, metal, layers of fun foam, chipboard, etc. I cut small samples of all the new cardstock so the stampers could use the Crop-a-dile to punch through 5-6 layers at a time then put in a notebook ring so they could have their own cardstock sample ring.

This photo is of a napkin ring I made using roof flashing. First I cut it to size using my tabletop cutter, then embossed it using the new Finial Press folder, punched hole in the ends and secured it with brads. Too cute!
