Suggested by papercraftz.com :
- Cutting Mat
- Cutting instrument – blade or scissors?
- Ruled metal straight edge
- Bone Folder – or stylus?
- Glue stick or Tape?
- Black Ink Pad – pigment or Dye?
- Embossing Powder & Heat Gun (quitte the posh little island You have there… electricity!?!)
- Stamp Cleaner & Cleaning Pad
I for one agree with most of that… my room of tools is not yet so large that I can imagine much more than these basics. With the heat gun, I have to say it is not even a major part of my arsenal yet, I only have ideas on a half-dozen cards to use it on. In a pinch I could do without the mat and the bone folder too, but the stylus would be pretty darn useful. I do love the Stampin’ Up! Scissors – both the paper scissors and the paper snips that work WELL on pretty much everything! I ADORe my stamp cleaner and cleaning pad – what an awesome invention :-D Happily, you can find a great deal on basics – and many under $10, from Stampin’ Up! Check out Shop Now from my site, and then look under Product Price Guide. Breaks it down for you into Under $10, Under 25, and more for those looking to steal away to a crafty island – or if you just want a great deal on some great products, to pad that already well stocked craft room!
What tools would you pack in your Island Must Have bag?
