The Right Tools For The Job...

Hi folks...it's always exciting when new products arrive from Fiskars...
but before we can play...there's the challenge of releasing them all from their tough as anything plastic overcoats...dynamite is out of the question so we decided to bring in the big guns or the biggest gun in the cubbyhole arsenal to be exact...
(Let me just add before I get my knuckles wrapped...I have 2 pairs of these fabulous scissors...one I use for fabric identified by the ribbon tied around the handle and this pair for paper and the above mentioned packaging demolition derby)
I'm over the moon that Fiskars sent me a brand new Stamp Press...a replacement for it's as old as the hills and a little worse for wear predecessors ...this is one of my favourite Fiskars tools ever...I use it on a daily basis for stamping everything from big cling stamps...it makes life so much easier...no more hovering...holding a big acrylic block and hoping you've got the positioning right...
and the grid on the see through plate makes it easy to line up your card and stamp your sentiments perfectly too...the good news is you will soon be able to purchase them again in the UK...
I have a few projects in mind for the stubborn plastic packaging and the corrugated cardboard product protectors...so won't be throwing those away...
And the moral of the story...life is a whole lot easier if you use the right tools for the job.

Look at all those fabulous goodies.
Using the right tools does make things easier but I suppose we can all be a bit impatient when we want to do something and will often grab whatever is to hand - usually making a right pig's ear of the task and having to go and find the right thing and start over LOL
Have fun playing.

Those vicious plastic packages drive me nuts too! Might have to think about some scissors dedicated to the task... and oh yes, definitely can see possibilities in those cardboard arches.
