Genesis Paper Trimmer

I have the 12", which is large enough to meet all my needs.  At $265 this is a considerable investment for a hobby.  However, most paper crafters buy one trimmer after another, replacing blades, etc.  Once you buy the Genesis, you are done.  In the long run, it is a money saver.  It has  a metal blade cutting on a metal strip.  The Genesis is sturdy.  It is not lightweight, so it doesn't move when you cut.  It cuts one piece of paper perfectly.

Versa Magic Ink Dew Drop
With space at a premium, I prefer small ink pads. Versa Magic is a fast drying (think 25 seconds) pigment ink that provides excellent coverage on solid stamps. It is juicy (a baby wipe cleans stamps the best). It leaves a slightly chalk finish that reminds me of A Muse or Fresh ink. And $2.50 or less per dew drop.  LOVE


This is a terrible photo of the best stamping tool invented in years.  It is pricey (you can get it directly from My Petunia for $50) but Simon Says Stamps is selling for $70.  Hard to find as production is slow, but worth the wait and the $$.  I have saved more cardstock since I started using this because placement of your stamps (clear or cling mount) stays the same through multiple stampings.  No more uneven stamping.
