As you all know I have sure been on a finishing kick lately! Let me remind you about some of my more recent forays into finishing land... its so nice that I've found my finishative lately!!!
Of course along with the urge to finish items comes a little shopping! Here and there I've been picking up some more fabrics for finishing. I've also been picking up more supplies and I've been running out!
As you can see here I've run out of batting (Warm N' Natural) which I use in my ornaments, flat folds, and more. A crib sized piece goes a long way. During my aforementioned trip to Jo-Ann's in my Scissor post. I saw they had rotary cutters for 1/2 off so I picked up a new one. I also grabbed a pinking blade, this way I can do pretty edges on ornaments finished with felt, I had a 50% off coupon for that...score! Now you may be wondering what that purple thing is in the picture. Its a ATG tape gun! This is a tape gun for double sided tape used by framers when putting together double mats, or the dust cover on the back of a framed piece. I also often use it during finishing when I need to stick things together. In the past I just rolled it out by hand... dealing with the pesky paper strip. This gun not only dispenses my tape beautifully but it collects the paper strip as well! Sweet. Even better than that is how much I paid for it! Normally $60.00, with a Michale's 50% off coupon, plus a gift card I kept forgetting about in my wallet... a grand $10.00!!!! Double score!
What are your favourite finishing bits and pieces that you can't live without... or perhaps you should think I should get. I already have a crop-a-dial on my list what else should be on it?
