I’m always on the lookout for tools that help complete tasks in easier, quicker ways. That’s why I love all the tools released at CHA each year. This year’s tools did not disappoint. I checked out the latest releases and recorded several tool demos for you to enjoy.
The Imagepac Stampmaker from Photocentric allows you to create your own stamps, stencils, or embossing templates.
The Distrezz-it-All from Zutter Innovative Products is fabulous for distressing edges in a jiffy. I love that you can distress the edges of a small mini book all at once—it means the edges of all the pages will line up precisely for great presentation.
The Zutter Kutter from Zutter Innovative Products provides an incredibly clean cut through thick materials like book board.
The Brad Setting Tool from We R Memory Keepers simplifies the process for setting brads. I love that brad prongs won’t catch the skin under my fingers anymore.
The Cinch from We R Memory Keepers makes it easy to bind your own mini albums or mini books.
The Presto Punch from Spellbinders is also a fun tool for cutting shapes from paper or cardstock. Unfortunately, the sound quality on my video wasn’t the greatest. To check out the tool in another video on YouTube, click here.
The Chip Art tools by Melody Ross for GCD Studios let you create design impressions in chipboard. In this video, you’ll see how the tool is used to make an impression in a GCD Studios jewelry pendant kit to create a custom necklace. You can also use the tools to alter any chipboard products you have at home.
