I Love my CropODile and Silhouette... and of course my camera!! My CropoDile punches anything and everything and my Silhouette cuts anything and everything!

I love the Crop-A-Dile! I want the big bite now.

I have other toys too and love them all...the only one I don't really like is the MM's eyelet setter...using it with a hammer just sucks!

Some of my favorite tools are pretty inexpensive.

I love my Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser and petite paper piercer.

I love my crop-o-dile and my Basic Grey Precision File set too.

And of course my Cuttlebug ROCKS!

Does anyone have a Revolution by QuicKutz ? I've been wanting to get one just for embossing purposes (and it's pretty!)... was wondering if it is worth it.

I love my friskars paper trimmer, pattern scissors, and paper piercer! I have been looking at the Ek Success - Fastenater Decorative Stapler lately. I'd really like to buy it to use on my wedding album!

I love all these. Oh, btw, I have had 5 different paper trimmers and none of them are as good as the first one I bought:

My Cricut of course.... and my MM paper trimmer and my camera and my PictureMate printer. I'm not much of a tool gal - I might look into a Crop-A-Dile though.

Deigh_z33 - I wouldn't bother spending my money on a Fastenator - you can use the bars for them without the tool, and it is actually much easier! It is very hard to line the tool up to where you want to staple a bar. You can just push the bars through your paper and flatten the tabs down with a popsicle stick..... much easier to place them exactly where you want them!

Amber, if you really want the fascinator, I'd suggest the small one rather than the big one. It's cheaper and uses the same size staples. Personally, I have one and very rarely ever even use it. I really want it at first and then my gram bought it for me and I find that I just don't touch it. Maybe I should make more efforts!!

As for tools, I use my paper piercer quite a bit. My cutterbee scissors are a must. I also use my various punches a lot. Oh, and my tweezers! Love them for grabbing small stuff like rain dots and rhinestones. I have so many tools and find that I use some of them frequently and others sit in a drawer to get yanked out once in a blue moon!

My favorite tool is my self healing mat. It is my page template, ruler, cutting board, etc., I use it every LO.

Great thread... I've learned some things!

I just had a moment. I didn't know the "threading water" punch existed... I wondered if people just bought tons of scalloped Bazzill . Duh! Wish I'd seen that before I placed my superstore order this morning.

I love tools, but I'm always afraid to buy them because I'm not sure I'll use them more than once. Ones I do have that I love are my AMM Tote-ally Cool tote and my Cutter Bee scissors. I'd be lost without those scissors!

I'm contemplating the Silhouette... getting tired of hand cutting titles!

Don't feel bad! I didn't know what the dang thing was either, and now that I actually saw it, I'm thinking I need one! lol I want the big bite, because I am finding the small one is to hard on my hands and it's kind of clumsy to use, but I used the big bite and it's much better. looking somewhere so I can use a coupon on it.

I don't know if some of my faves qualify as tools
but lately i'm totally into ink, makeup sponges and ctmh stamps
couldn't live without my cutting mat
Cricut goes without saying
the Making Memories ribbon punchy thing
I got it off of qvc and it goes on my not so silent setter.

wow.. i guess i don't have a whole lot as far as tools go (yet!) but i definitely could not scrap without my paper trimmer! i'm definitely looking into starting heat embossing, getting more acrylic stamps, and that Fiskars threading water punch! and a cropodile big bite!

Since I'm a newbie I don't have many tools - just mostly small gadgets but am rapidly building my stash. I don't have any kind of die cutting machine and have only this week seen how the Sizzix, Cricut & Cuttlebug actually work (GOTTA GET AT LEAST 1 OF THEM!!!) But at this point, I really love my Coluzzle & swivel knife for making perfect circles.

I have a pretty well stocked scraproom. I love tools, but don't keep ones I don't use. I love my Cricut Expression and have many of the gadgets mentioned above. My favorite relatively new tool is a Purple Cow 2 in 1 trimmer.
