First, the Crop-A-Dile. This is one FAB punch and eyelet setter. It punches paper, chipboard and fabric books like "buttah". Well, I don't really take great care with my tools...I use and abuse them. So when my CAD was feeling sticky (because I'm sure I've punched through adhesive one too many times), I attacked it with the tried and true fixer of (almost) everything, WD-40!
Just spray WD-40 in the spring and then punch through paper a few times to clean it a bit. The result? Good as new!
Next up is the White Souffle Pen by Sakura. Now, the best thing, I feel, about this pen is the fact that it writes superbly on dark paper. I am making a journal with all black pages. Enter the white Souffle pen.
The final result? Beautiful opaque white dots on my black cardstock page. You must get these pens!
