I love my Making Memories Tool Caddy that is always within reach on my craft table. I thought that I would share some of the favorite tools that reside in it. These are my "go-to" items that I use about every time that I sit down to craft. (Hint: buy it at a craft store with a 40% off coupon.)
Favorite Scissors: Fiskars Spring Action type--my hands never get tired anymore when I do a lot of cutting. I love these!
Current Favorite Adhesive: Tombow Mono Dots Adhesive Permanent--these can get pricey with the way that I seem to go through them, but I really like the dot tape runners. This one never gets gunked up like others I have used. I have tried to go cheaper, but I always regret it, so I buy these refills in bulk now.
Favorite way to distress: Tim Holtz Sanding Block--I like the size of this grip and the fact that it is comfortable in my hand. I just replace it with strips of sandpaper from my husband's stash in his garage. It's cheaper and I haven't notice any difference whatsoever.
Favorite Stapler: Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher--these are just so darn cute! The staples are about 1/4" and perfect for attaching items.
Favorite Brad: Basic Black--I go through these way too quickly. I like them as accents, in flower centers, as eyeballs, etc. You can never go wrong with little black brads.
Favorite White Pen: Stampin' Up Uni-Ball Signo Gel Pen--the only white pen I have found that writes well and does not skip ink. Love it! Looks great on Kraft colored cardstock also.
Favorite Background Noise while crafting: Paperclipping Roundtable--I've mentioned this site before and I anxiously await each new episode. It's just like having a few friends over to craft and chat.
