Ok, this week I am going to share a couple of my favorite tools. For a couple of reasons. One maybe it can help with a last minute gift item, for a friend or to hint to a Hubby :0) and then Two... well my craft space looks like a bomb went off in it. A Doggy Day Care, and a dumping zone for everything. Sigh... after Christmas I will get it all back into order I hope!
So for my first favorite tool - It is always out on my desk, I have used it for a couple of years now, and wouldn't craft with out it - and all though I love it I just replaced my original with a brand new pink one :0) Not just cuz I wanted the pretty pink one, but well... my was really sad looking. My ATG Tape GUN!! I adore this thing! And now that my sticky old worn out one is now new clean and pink I love it even more!!
Now I could have gone on with my old red gun, I have cleaned it a million times, it is sticky - but it does work. I have always had a sticking problem when at the end of the roll, one of the first so it had some issues. But a couple of weeks ago I was in Micheals with a 50% coupon in hand... and went around an end cap and saw them... oh the pink one!!! It was only $35.00 - I paid WAY more than that for my first gun. So with my 50% off it was a steal! And it came with two free rolls of tape! So the old one went in my desk drawer, and now the pretty pink one sits on my desk. .... I love the ease of it, I love how long the tape last, and how much cheaper it is than most other adhesives! I buy my tape from the Tape Depot... the off brand, and I think it works just as well as the name brand. And again much much cheaper. LOVE my ATG!!!!
Another must have on my desk tools is my ruler... I have had many rulers over the years - most of them cheap school rulers - but then I got my Tim Holtz Design Ruler - love it!!!
Well that is two items I love - do you have either of them? What do you think of them? Or let me know what your top two favorite tools are.... I might need them too!
I have both of them. Well, not the pink ATG but the red one and I love it as well. I need to use the ruler. I bought it but haven't used it. Maybe today would be a good time to dig it out. Merry Christmas to you!!
I have to second your comment on the ATG! Absolutely ADORE it! Haven't found anything to stick better!
Yep...both of these are my go- tos. Could not craft without them!
I think I now NEED both of these items. Hmmm, do you think it is too late to ask SANTA? Hugs...
Santa brought me a pink ATG Gun - it's marvellous and is already probably my very fave crafty tool......I can't think how I managed all these years with DST and other sticky stuff! So glad to see how well you are now honey! Di x
