I learned a lot about some Fiskars Products and was able to have a great time playing with punches, the new corner/border punches, tape runners and paper galore!  Oh what a FUN time Becca (My BFF) and I had! :)

Becca and I also had to get ourselves over to Chocolate World and get ourselves some yummy treats and take the Tour Ride! (You always get free candy at the end!)

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    Things I have and like:

    1. Collection of fancy scissors.

    2. Small trimmer i use for scoring.

    I tried to use some different words – so I won’t get the message saying I duplicated. So, if it sounds like I didn’t know what I was talking about, I was just trying to come up with new words for things that might sound alike.

    Thanks again! Marianne

    Hi…sounds like a fun time with Wendy! NICE!
    3 favorites of mine
    1)ALL of my different scissors
    2) my paper trimmer
    3) my fingertip tools

    3 things I need to know more about?
    1) floral tools
    2) circle border punch (its hard for me to use)
    3) the stamp factory

    on a side not…I would like to know why I can’t get certain Fiskers items at any stores around here…My LSS tell me they wont carry what the big box stores have so they have rare fiskers items. The big box stores around me have none of the punches I want! eg the darn umbrella punch I am in love with..So it sort of forces me to order it on-line which costs more when you add the shipping. There wont be any wharehose sales here that I know of so what’s a gal to do? lol

    Isn’t Hershey the best! I was there last fall when Wendy Jo did the Fiskafrenzy at the Lodge.

    I Love and couldn’t live without:
    1. Fiskars Trimmer, I have the basic grey with orange stripes one with interchangable cutting and scoring blade. They are the best!
    2. Fiskars Microtop Scissors- they are better than the Tim Holtz Tonic ones. They cut so nice!
    3. Fiskateers- I know this is not a product, but I learn so much from the other member that they really our a tool in my crafting life.

    I want to Know Better or Use More Often:
    1. Finger Tip Craft Knife- I have had this for more than 6 months and have yet to take it out of the package. I am a little scared of the freehand cutting.
    2. Ultimate Shape Express and Self Healing Mat- I forget to take it out and use. Gets lost in the shuffle of all my punches and dies. But is an awesome tool
    3. Embossing templates- again I love the effect, but forget to take out and use.

    Thanks for the chance!
