Spellbinders--Tan Embossing Mats (16 December 2010)
I bought these mats to use with my Fiskars embossing plaques in my cuttlebug embossing machine after seeing a youtube video about this.
Before having the mats I couldn't use the plaques with the cuttlebug and now I am able to do so. I love how the embossing comes out now.

Zutter-Distrezz It All-Electric Distressing Tool (29 January 2011)
I love the Shabby Chic look so I make an effort to distress and ink many of my paper projects. I have the Tim Holtz distressing tool and wanted to have something that was a bit more powerful to distress the edges of grunge paper and cardboard. This Zutter tool fills this need quite well. I really like it a lot--it is fast and easy and cleans easily too.
The only drawback that I have experienced is with lighter gauge papers. These lighter gauge papers can easily tear from the power of this electric tool. So you must use it with a lot of care--or use the Tim Holtz distressing tool instead.
Prima-Fairy Flora Collection-6x6 Paper Pad (29 January 2011)

Imaginisce-I-BondTool-Cordless Hot Glue Gun (11 February 2011)
When I saw that this hot glue gun was battery operated I had to buy it. However, now that I have been using it I am disappointed with it.
It uses 4 double A batteries but these batteries get used up really quickly. So far I have found that it lasts for only one project at a time. I bought rechargeable batteries for it because otherwise it would be too costly to use.
Even the rechargeable batteries can be used for only one project and then lose their power.
Thank goodness that these batteries will recharge in about 15-20minutes.
I find this to be a real nuisance.
I am also disappointed that the gun doesn't really make the glue very hot--so far I've just been using it for gluing paper flowers to my projects and this seems to work.
