As a crafter, I have many tools. I have many times felt, I have just what I need or what I have is just great. However, sometimes a friend comes along with a cool tool or someone sends you something and you realize that there are even better tools out there, than your current stash holds. Tools that do the same thing but perhaps better. Such is the case when I received these wonderful tools from Creative Impressions.
I mean really, I have a ruler, I have a craft knife and embossing stylus. I really didn’t need a new one. Or did I????? Well, let’s take a look.
The great ruler is clear acrylic with a metal edge, great for cutting and providing a straight edge for your craft knife but what I really like is that there is a grid which helps with lining up projects, easily. Seeing through the ruler and the grids makes line up a cinch.
Speaking of lining up, the same holds true for the Pierce Emboss Foam Pad. I know a pad is a pad, is a pad, right. Wrong! The grid is another great feature here. I can recall days when I had my ruler and my pad trying to space holes evenly…now I have both in one. Woohoo!
Lastly, my favorite is the All in One Tool! The cost savings alone makes it worth it. Doing mixed media I find myself using an embossing stylus in various sizes, paper piercers in various sizes and a craft knife. In the past, I would have bought one of each…having at least 4 different tools. However, the All in One Tool includes an interchangeable head with 6 cutting blades, 4 embossing/scoring heads and 2 paper piercing points. Hallelujah…one tool many uses! YES! LOVE! And at only $8 this tool is a steal!
If you are in the market for these tools or if you just need to change it up, why not check out the Creative Impressions tools I’ve shared and then you decide.
Have fun and happy Tuesday!
Embrace your art, free your soul.
