I have bought this tool on three separate occasions and it is without a doubt my favourite tool to date. However, the reason I bought it three times, is because I found it a little flimsy. The casing the tips go into has sprung on me, rather mysteriously, also the plastic spiral holding the head on the tool, broke very easily on me. Yet, I bought another one rather than be without one, because it is absolutely the best multi-tool on the market. I love that I can work these different techniques, and not have to break out another tool. In addition, many of these techniques do not require as much pressure with this tool, and this is wonderful for my CTS. While I find it indispensible, please take my foolish advice: Handle with care.
This is the best tool on the market for all your scrapbooking and crafting needs. Chizzel-it has six changeable tips that allows you to Emboss on paper, vellum and thin metal. The Brush tip I use with my ink pads to give my letters an air brushed effect or use it like a stencil brush around the edges of your deckle edged photos and paper by appling inks in a brown color to give an aged appearance. The sanding tip gives you much more control on aging photographs and paper for a time worn look. You can throw away those bits of sandpaper this is much faster. Then to complete your aged look use the metal cone to distress buttons or other metal embellishments such as brads. If you like to use chalk there is a tip for that too. Then there is the Engraving tip. Wow; You can buy replacement tips when these are worn out. There is no need to invest in an expensive Dremel tool. Chizzel-it Can do more of the work so that you don't have too. Buy it today from scrapbook.com superstore I noticed it was on SALE!!
I use this tool on just about every layout I make. It is perfect for getting those darned little pieces off the side of punch-outs, for aging paper and chipboard, for putting chalk on the edges of diecuts and papers, for creating a cool texture on chipboard, for smoothing edges... and more, much more! I have used it for over 6 months and I haven't even had to change the battery!! I am disabled and it so easy to keep in the basket near me... I reach for it all the time. My husband has even used it when he couldn't find his Dremel tool... lol. This is one of the best scrapbooking tools I own - and I own a LOT! What a great price on it right now - you should jump on this. I promise you will be thrilled - as I am!!
I don't think I have a LO that this tool has not touched in some way. It is so versatile and so unique! I have plenty of replacement tips on hand (I found them in a close-out sale and bought them all) because I use this so much. I recommend this tool to every scrapper and crafter I see. THANK YOU Provo Craft!!
