  1. These tools are great. I have the shammy, tweezers and pick and they come in handy when crafting. Learned a new technique today with using the sanding paper.

  2. I agree! those are great tools. I couldn’t live without my tweezers and my craft pick! I don’t use my shammy as often as I should, though I love it.

  3. I have all of the except the AMAZING embellishment tray. I am surprised that someone hasn’t thought of a triangular shape before! GENIUS!

  4. Thank you for sharing. I couldn’t live without the tweezers, pick or shammy either. I have the embellishment trays, but forget to use them. I’ll pull one out and keep it on my desk. Going to have to try the sandpaper. Thanks for the suggestions.

  5. Thanks for the informative video, Jess. I love the triangle tray – have to look into that. Looks very useful!!

  6. Beautiful card! I had never thought of using the little sanding stick for die cuts. Brilliant! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Love the embellishment tray.
    I need that one – have several of
    the others already. thanks for
    the video. txmlhl(at)yahoo(dot)com

  8. Gorgeous card! Love the bright colors! I love this kind of posts! I have and love so much some of your tools!

  9. Beautiful card and great ideas–I have all of those things except that particular sander, I have a different sander but I don’t use it often.

  10. Thanks for the video, pretty card too. I think the shammy was the best thing ever invited all I need is those tweezers, I don’t know why I haven’t gotten them yet.

  11. Thank you for all these tips. I love the stamp shammy a lot. I have one and I’m glad Im not using that many wipes now.

  12. Beautiful card!! Great tips and ideas for using those tools. I never thought to use my sanding block in that way.

  13. Great choices! I also reach for my T-ruler a lot. Love that large sentiment over the flowers. Made a very pretty layout!

  14. Gorgeous card. I absolutely agree with your choices for top 5 inexpensive crafty tools — with the exception of the Studio Katia Embellishment Tray, I have them all and use them frequently (some I use daily).

  15. I own and use my two shammies, pick and tweezers all the time. I have a cheap toothbrush on my desk to remove the pesky die cut “fuzz”. Now I need to buy that embellishment holder – love the triangle shape.
