My Favourite Tool Again!

I have been asked this question many many times. I also have put it on my blog a time or two. But to be honest it really depends on my mood. Not so much the absolute essentials (that's a given) but the other toys (tools) that add so much dimension to our work.

Of course the absolute essentials are (in random order)

  • Glue sticks
  • Snail (double sided adhesive)
  • Dimensionals
  • Sticky Strip
  • Bone Folder
  • Scissors
There is your paper piercer, mat pack that adds dimension but by and long the absolute bestest, bestest, ever---The Big Shot. Now I know that there are other die cutting machines out there (not going to name names here) that others prefer but once I was exposed to it I fell for it. You might sort of say fell head over heels in love with it.

My latest discovery with it has been stamping my image on it first, then putting it through an embossing envelope. BAM what an image it has become, for example:


The image become even more alive after it went through the big shot. Now I realize you can't have one without the other. In other words, if you don't have the Big Shot you can't push the embossing envelope through but then again what use is the Big Shot when there is nothing to push through it. So needless to say you need a lot of accessories to go with the Big Shot, but believe me when I say this is a tool (toy) that is well worth every penny! See ya tomorrow.
