Hi all of you wonderful hoppers!
Do you have your comfy clothes on? Your cuppa whatever you drink?
This is a long post in a long hop!
Hopefully you came to my blog from the lovely and talented Kathy's blog.
If you stumbled across this post you may want to go to the
SSD Blog and start there...
We have a few new images to add to Lindsay's wonderful images!
Here is my card using the beautiful
I popped her dress up to give it a bit more dimension.
I think she is such a lovely image!
OK on to the hop info!
We have been asked to list our favorite tool and least favorite and why.
So I will tell you my favorite...
It is called "Perfect Layers"
This was one of my very first tools I ever bought.
It came with a cutting mat, exacto knife and 3 rulers.
At that time I was more into scrapping and
putting frames around the pictures for my layouts.
There are good and bad reviews of this product but I have to say overall my review is great.
There are a few tricks to using them but it helps to make your
borders straight and neat!
I have never been able to find the set that I purchased that
came with every thing but you can find several different sets here.
Basically each ruler has four sizes 1/8, 1/16, etc... and you put your picture or whatever on the paper you want the mat to be and line up...forget it I am not going to try to explain it! LOL Too long and boring...there is a video on that site as well!
So this would have to be my favorite tool!
My least favorite is soooo hard to say. There are a few things that I wish I had waited to get or things I should not have bought because I already owned something that does the same thing.
My newest tool that I am disappointed in would have to be the i-magicut ribbon cutter.....
I think it does ok on regular ribbon, but try one with the painted on dots and it doesn't cut it very well and can even melt it a bit. Si I am going to go back to my old stand by called fray check...that stops the ends from fraying!
DEETS: First prize will be 3 of the new images...BUT you must leave a comment on the SSD Blog stating YOUR favorite/least favorite tool...there will be 2 winners that will get 1 of the new images....BUT you must leave love on each of the DT's blog...you never know which comment from whose blog will be chosen!
From here you hop on over to Lori's blog to see what fabulous creation she has made!
I started out trying for a more pink dress but
ended up going browns...figured it looked a bit more aged!
We are having a blog hop this Saturday the 21st!
And then a chat Saturday evening (10 pm est) on the PARTY BLOG!
Because of all the new members it is going to be a huge hop.
So make sure you have a cuppa something good to drink,
a snack and your fuzzy slippers.
Can't wait to see you hopping!
