Everyone has a favourite stamp set, adhesive, colour and tool. I was thinking about my favourite tool – something that I use most days and that has many uses.
It's my Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. I use it for a variety of reason including:
The Soft Pad & Template – faux stitching, piercer paper and making holes for brads
In this card I used the template to create the "stiching" lines around the outside of the frame. You can use the Gel Pen to "connect" the dots and it really looks like stiching with a machine!
Here's a close up of the stitching – all neat and evenly spaced.
Hard Pad – for setting eyelets, as a self healing cutting mat (with the hobby knife), with the Cutter kit for scoring, cutting and perferating (another favourite thing!)
You get all three pieces – the hard mat, soft mat and template for $13.95.
If you haven't already got this fab little tool place an order today through email. You'll love it too!
Leave me a comment about your favourite "can't live without" Stampin' Up! product. I'll be holding a random drawing for a free class by mail package – includes all the instructions and pre-cut materials. Must live in Canada – draw will take place on Friday, January 29th!
I would have to say it is the mat pack as well. I just love the handy little tool set, so easy to use and it is so effective when you add piercing to a project. My second favorite tool, at least I include it as a tool is the Stampin’ dimensional. And of course I also LOVE my BIG SHOT!!! Too many things to love!!
Hmm tough one. If you had asked me last year, it would have been my heat embosser – I loved that thing. But I think right now, I can’t live without a stash of kraft cardstock and dimensionals.

My favourite tool I can’t live without is the ticket corner punch. I reach for it almost every time I make a card.

My favourite “can’t do without” tool is the stamp-a-ma-jig. Because I am somewhat “anal” about perfect lines and placements, this tool is a must for me. It saves so much paper as placement of images is always perfect the first time.

My favourite tool is the ticket corner punch as well as my big shot. I do use both of these tools alot.
