Let's Talk Tools!

So I was giving a lot of thought today about tools. All of the many tools we use in our paper crafting. I think we all have a favorite tool, or maybe a tool we don't think we could do without? Below I am going to share a list and beside each item I am going to match a tool based on my preference. Next I want YOU to take the list and do the same and post in the comment section of this blog thread. I am really anxious to see how everyone's list turns out. So lets get started-

Lisa's Tool List

Favorite Tool- Crop-a-dile
Tool I couldn't live with out- Paper Piercer
Tool I use the most for non-scrapping projects around my house- Making Memories eyelet hammer
Favorite scissors- Cutter Bee
Punch I use the most- Fiskars Oopsie Daisy flowers
Favorite Circle cutting tool- EK Success Curvy cutter (there are a few others out there I would like to try but have not yet)

Ok, now it is your turn! Complete you list and add to the comments below this thread. Don't be shy, I want to hear from everyone!

Love tools! But I don't use scrapper's tools, rather jewelry tools!
I love my hammers! I have one's that texturize, the best being the Fretz hammers. If I had a million dollars I would buy they all!
I love my dapping tools! I can turn metal into all sorts of cup shapes, great for filling with resin.
I love my soldering iron! I make pendants and attach jump rings. Very useful, but very hot!
I love all my pliers and side cutters. I have many many, most useful are the round nose, bent nose and flat nose are the most unseful. I would like save up for the really nice Lindstroms. They are like $50 a piece!
My bench block gets used a lot and I have the sweetest little custom pillow to cushion the blow. And the little Creative Memories hammer gets a lot of use, so I guess I do use scrapper tools!
And I hear from my friend at Vintaj that the Cuttlebug can emboss on their metal blanks. I really want to test that out with all the metal that I have!
Thanks for the great post, Lisa!
Enjoy the day! Erin
