Spellbinders Tool n’ One Foam

We have this wonderful new addition to your Spellbinders Tool n’ One - Tool n’ One Foam.

This special density, custom colored foam makes using Tool n' One a breeze. After cutting, embossing, and removing your die cut from the die,  place your die with the remaining small pieces cut side down on the foam. Using the Tool n’ One, just roll over the die and all of your pieces will be on the foam. Take the foam over trash and shake to discard all of the pieces. NO MORE pieces flying everywhere. This foam features an anti-static coating to keep the cardstock from sticking to the foam. The foam supports the die as you roll over the die to remove the pieces.

The package contains 1 piece of 6" x 8.5" foam.

This fabulous foam was designed by Cindy Echitnaw to coordinate with Spellbinders Tool n' One and Spellbinders Dies.

Lots of News

Many of you have already heard of this company so if there is anything I can help you with, please feel free to call. You may look at their products on their website here - Taylored Expressions.

We will be CLOSED on Friday, July 4th to celebrate Independence Day!

On Thursday, July 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st we will be having Christmas in JULY Make n’ Take days from 10am until 1pm. We are hoping to give you some inspiration to get an early start on your Christmas cards. Yes, I know it is 100 degrees outside and it is hard to think of the holidays, but you know they are just around the corner. Don’t let them sneak up on you this year!

Potters Don and Susan Walton work in a studio named "Pottery Road Studio & Gallery", which is attached to the front gallery with a window, so that visitors can see the day-to-day tasks of pottery production.

Rubber Stamp Tapestry, an art stamp manufacturing business with a world wide following, is also located there.

Susan has made some exceptional jewelry that she would like to share with you.

It starts with a pinch of porcelain, and each piece of jewelry is hand-formed and intentionally made to be different so there are no exact matches. Vitreous porcelain makes each piece exceptionally durable. Metal components are hypoallergenic, non-tarnishing surgical stainless.  

We have some of Susan's jewelry on display in the shop. When you stop by be sure to take a look! It is quite lovely and oh so different.

We also have the brand new Spellbinders Tool ‘n One, which is perfect for getting all of those stubborn pieces out of your intricate dies after cutting. Spellbinders® Tool 'n One is a crafter's dream - all your tools at your fingertips. It is a portable tool that performs multiple craft functions, including piercing, paper removal and many more! In addition, it provides a unique storage solution. What is the solution? The Tool-n-One’s attachments are housed within the “pod” of its main body. The tool easily crosses over for other hobbyists using small pieces and parts such as airplane models and miniature houses.

Here is a short video demonstrating this fabulous tool:
