Challenge #21 - Tool Time

Do you have tools collecting dust? or a tool you just bought due to adrenalin rush and never even tried using not even once? or do you have a staple/favorite tool that you always use in your projects? Why not bring them all out and start playing!

Here's the rule: Use at least 3 types of tool in your project -a card, an LO, a mini-album, altered items, etc, get crafty!
(just make sure the use of tools are obvious and visible)

Please note that the basic trimmer, ordinary scissors, rulers, mats and craft knife/cutter are excluded since these are the basic tools.

This is how I categorized the tools: ( please call my attention for any queries and clarification)

  1. Stamps - foam, rubber stamp (mounted/unmounted), acrylic/clear, magnetic

  2. Heat embosser/ Heat tool gun

  3. Eyelet setter/grommet tool - (hammer type or instant setter like MM, Cropadile, Big bite, other brands)

  4. Decorative scissors/trimmers

  5. Punchers - border punch, corner puncher, hole puncher, shape puncher
