My Crafting Babies

Oh yes! I have a blog that is all about crafts, DIY, design and anything about creativity. It's been sleeping here for a very looooonnnngggg time! I have taken this for a back seat because I was so busy on mommy duties and my lifestyle blog. I thought of visiting and feeding here relevant ideas in time for my daughter's first birthday. I hope this will be the start of continuing to share and create quirky ideas. Last night, I dig my plastic storage containing my precious crafting tools. I'll be sharing with you my coveted crafting pieces through photos. So here they are:

This is my favorite tool. It's a manual embosser. I got it for less than P200.00 pesos.

How to do it? Insert paper in between the gray part where you can see the hearts design.
Rotate the gray lever on the left side and the paper will pass through it pressing the cardboard paper.
Tip: Use a hard or cardboard paper so as not to crush the paper.

This is a ink pad stamp.

It's nice when distressing and making something like rustic and old as design.

Tadah! This puncher is good and nice in the overlap of envelopes. I used it in my wedding invitation.

So there you go my favorite pieces. I'm loving wash tapes but I find it too expensive. But I am itching to buy one for a start.

How about you? What's your favorite crafting tools? I'd love to hear from you.
