Be sure to watch my video to learn more about each tool.

1 – Creative Detailer Tool

I really like the Couture Creations Creative Detailer Tool for “erasing” ink fingerprints and such on my cards.

2 – Comfort Blocks

If you are looking for great acrylic blocks, I recommend the Gina K Comfort Blocks. They have smooth, rounded edges and engraved guidelines that are perfect for stamping straight.

3 – Obsidian Black Ink

I have really been loving the Altenew Obsidian Black Ink lately. It gives crisp, dark, solid images every time! (I still use Gina K Amalgam Ink often… especially for images I plan to color.)

4 – Stamp Positioner

Stamp positioners are not new. However, I feel they should make a comeback to help with stamping! I am really liking the Art Impressions Stamp Positioner and show how to use it in THIS video.

Are you a crafter who struggles with measurements? The Lawn Fawn 12″ Ruler may be for you!

6 – Lawn Fawn Double Sided Tape

I use strong double-sided tape often when crafting. And I have been impressed with the quality and price of the Lawn Fawn Double Sided Tape. It comes in two widths.

7 – Narrow Purple Tape

I have been using Purple Tape for a long time, but now it comes in a narrow width – the Therm O Web 1/2″ Purple Tape. I keep mine in THIS handy dispenser. Works great!

8 – Waffle Flower Mat

I regularly create on a Tim Holtz Glass Media Mat. I simply love it. However, if I am doing a lot of ink blending, I use the Waffle Flower Water Media Mat. I like that the mat somewhat holds on to the paper so I don’t have to hold it with my fingers.

9 – Tim Holtz Haberdashery Scissors

Looking for sharp scissors that are perfect for fussy cutting? Lately I have been using and loving the new Tim Holtz Haberdashery Scissors. They are meant for fabric, but work great on paper!

10 – Zipper Bags

Organization is important for me… as is being able to craft on the go. The various Avery Elle Zipper Bags are wonderful and hold up great!

  3. Thanks Jen,
    Love Lawn Fawn 12″ Rule I have always had a problem measuring even as a quilter/ card maker. 😕 I t would be nice if came out like sticker that you could see and stick for The work table too.😀

  4. Jennifer,
    Thanks for showing us these great tools. I just love the new Couture Creation detailer and the Obsidian ink pad by Altenew. The ruler is a must have too. Thank you.

  5. Wonderful I fo as always. I do have a question as I am about to get a new die cutting system, had cuttlebug for years now. Does the Gemini Junior take the Sizzix Big steel rule dies? I have watched so many you tubes reviews, but no one addresses this. Hope you will as I know you use Gemini Junior. I am also reviewing the Big Shot Foldaway. Yours is THE BEST you too tutorials, always check you first for everything and want you to know you are my favorite crafty tool!!!

  6. Thank you for the great tool update. There was a few things I was thinking of buying , but didn’t know how well they work. So thank you.

  7. Jennifer you are a lovely person. You show so much kindness. But, I feel there is a slight amount of devil in you. EVERY time you show products, there is a part of me that says I NEED THAT!!!!! This devilish side of you makes me want to spend – spend – spend!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Of course I saw things I HAVE to have once again. My mind thanks you, but my wallet (and hubby) not so much. 🙂

  8. Great video. I always look forward to all you videos, but especially when showing how new products work .

  9. Oh Jen, you are fabulous!!! I love your videos, your tips, the products you recommend, your cards……I love it all!! You make me SO HAPPY!! Thank you for sharing! You’re the bee’s knees!!
