We all have those products that we can’t live without. So today I am going to share with you my MUST HAVE Close To My Heart products.
Let’s start with the basics…
The VersaMat™ and SureCut™ Deluxe Craft Paper Trimmer are probably a big investment however they make scrapbooking much easier.
The VersaMat™ is 12″ x 12″ and has measurements all the way around and I use this all the time as it’s great for lining up and getting a straight edge.
Also the VersaMat™ has a “squishy” other side and this is perfect to use when stamping.
The SureCut™ Deluxe Craft Paper Trimmer makes cutting your paper a breeze and it has a swing out arm that measures up to 15″.
The wire cut-line indicator is another great addition as you know exactly where your cut will be.
Another two products that are a great investment is our Micro-tip and Non-Stick Micro-tip Scissors.
They are super sharp and the point makes them great for fussy cutting. The Non-stick Micro-Tip scissors features an adhesive resistant non-stick coated blade.
It is perfect for cutting through adhesives without sticking and getting all gunked up.
Warning: Please be careful when using scissors as they are very sharp.
When stamping I use my My Acrylix® Blocks because they are clear and I can see through when stamping my image.
They also have a guide line embedded into the block so you can use it to line up your stamps.
The My Acrylix® Block Starter Kit is a great kit because it includes one each of our most useful block sizes: (2″ × 2″, 3″ × 3″, 2″ × 3½”).
I started with this kit and have built up from there.
Let’s Talk Adhesive…
Close To My Heart offers a variety of different adhesives (glue) and there will be an adhesive for whatever you need.
- Adhesive tape runners
- 3-D foam tape and dots
- Thin 3-D foam tape and dots
- Micro glue dots and Mini glue dots
- Dual tip permanent glue
- Liquid glass
All our Adhesives are super strong and serve their purpose well.
The Tombow® Permanent Adhesive is the one I constantly use because it is refillable and acid free.
Our liquid glass is useful for adding accents to create a glossy / shiny effect.
So if you have a flower image and wanted to add a shine to the centre of the flower, this will be great to use but it can also be used as an adhesive.
Our foam tape and dots have a super strong hold and I always use them to add dimension to my page or card.
Our Micro glue dots and Mini glue dots are the ideal adhesive for adding all those little embellishments such as sequins to your page or card.
