Those are two of the most often asked questions I hear.
The must haves basic toolkit includes:
1. A good paper cutter
I prefer Fiskars and we happen to sell the cutter I use.
You want a portable paper cutter. You want a cutter that will expand to at least 12". You want a paper cutter where you can read the measurements all the way across.
Over the years I have used many different brands of scissors. I will emphatically state that I prefer the CTMH scissors over any other I have tried.
|Non-Stick Micro-Tip Scissors - Z1836|
The best scissors EVER! Notice the word, "NON-STICK." They mean it. I do not have a problem with any adhesive sticking to these scissors and can "fussy-cut" to my heart's content.
3. Journaling pens. I don't care if you don't like your handwriting. The story the important part of scrapbooking, your stories, your writing, your love for your families. Of course, Close to My Heart sells a great one.
a. Tape runner - I use Tombow until I run out of refills. I will then switch to what we sell.
b. Liquid Glass
