Mine are:

- crop a dile
- Tim Holtz's design ruler
- x-acto knife
- stamp a ma jig
- Tim Holtz's (real) bone folder. LOVE this one.
- Making Memories tweezers and paper piercer
- Creative Memories' corner rounder (all their punching tools are perfection)

What are yours??

i've seen it. i had a consultant when i still lived in NV. they had almost completely gotten rid of the mrs grossman's/CM stickers and had started doing a lot more of the papers with distressed looks and digi stuff too. i don't do digi (my dad just got me PSE7 and a wacom tablet for my birthday and i am still intimidated just by trying to do things with my photos). and CMs paper and stuff is still too pricey for me when there is other stuff i like better. but the tools kick a$$.

Awesome!

I thought I had left mine at Archiver's when I scrapped there last, which was probably a year ago, but I found it in a box. Maybe it is time to sell mine, too. Smile

I had my first "almost" incident with my guillotine last week. I had my finger under the blade...but fortunately my fingernail stopped it from doing too much damage. And I'm usually pretty gentle with it so that helped prevent a major injury.

I love my Tonic edge distressor. I never leave home without it. Well, I do, but not if I am going to a crop. Laughing
