Scrapbooking Tools

Today I am going to continue on in my series of Scrapbooking Tips .  

You can find my first post on Scrapbooking Organization  HERE

There are so many different tools and supplies available that there is no way I could ever cover them all.  So I am just going to wing it and mention some of the more common ones. 

Paper Trimmer- for cropping photos, making mats etc

Journalling Pen- fine tip black is a necessity but colors are fun too

Alphabet Stickers or Alphabet dies- for making titles for your pages

Tombow Adhesive- the best bang for your buck adhesive- temporary or permanent and goes a loooong way!

Ruler- measuring, keeping journalling straight

Label Maker- for journalling

Sticky Strip- double sided tape for adhering heavy items or making a mini album

Computer- for journalling

Adhesive Remover- to quickly fix and mistakes

Scissors- you need a good pair of fine tip sharp scissors for paper only as well as another pair for ribbon and other items

Album and Page Protectors- to store your completed pages

Tweezers and Pick Up Stick- helps with placement of small embellishments

Spritzer Bottle- to make your own homemade spray inks

Punches- add ginterest and dimension to a page

Washi Tape- quick and fun way to add color and dimension to your layout

Embellishments- brads, buttons, metal, clips, candy dots, flowers etc

Cardstock and Designer Series Papers that coordinate for your layouts.

Coloring- inks, pencils, crayons, pastels, markers etc

Sponges and Daubers- to add depth and dimension

Ribbon and Twine- add interest

Bling- go ahead glitz it up girl!

Distressing Tool- to rough up edges 

Sew Easy Tool- to add decorative stitching

Book Binding Tool- to make your own mini albums

Tags, Journalling Cards and Paper Embellishments- add interest

Also there are so many pre-made items you can purchase for embellishment as well as assorted types of inks and spritz- texture pastes- hardware the list goes on and on.  

My favorite tool by far is my new Cameo Silhouette that dear hubby got me for Christmas.  It is the absolute best!  I can cut my own shapes and titles and manipulate the images myself on my computer to get exactly what I want.  

I recently made football shapes that we made into cards  in my monthly card class- these were a big hit
