There’s no way around it - good tools are a must.  Buy cheap & you’ll be buying again or struggling & not managing to produce the great work you’re after.   As your time as a Scrapbooker passes so you’ll end up accumulating everything you need.  Sourcing good quality tools has proved to be a tough task but I’ve done my best to bring you a fair amount of the basics you’ll need.

 

Cutting tools are of course your first big purchase - a decent trimmer is a must - you want one that will last you YEARS not months. If you are a lover of fussy-cutting then Tim Holtz serrated snips will change your life! I have scissors of all shapes & sizes in my personal stash, so have tried to offer a good variety here, as they are all perfect for one job or another.   A heavy metal ruler, corner rounder & tweezers are other essentials.  Anything you use over & over again, that is not consumed & therefore needs to be repurchased, is considered a tool (for the purpose of this category in any case!) 


Tools cost more because they DO more.  Good tools should last "forever" & they’ll help you produce the best results in the fastest time.  Along with Mixed Media work comes a whole new selection of tools, but remember, an old gift/store card is the most useful tool of all & those are free - use those for applying gesso & texture paste for some lovely looks & to add great texture! Stencils are great fun for adding background interest - just remember to wash them as soon as you can, in some warm soapy water, before the mediums on them go hard & make it more difficult!  Or do like me & keep a packet of wetwipes with your stash so you can wipe them clean  to save you time & a trip to the kitchen!
