Kick Start Day 2, MOJO259 & Distrezz-it-all!

Hello Friends,

It's day two of the fabulous Online Card Class, Kick Start.  We had more help and inspiration on ways to store our inspiration and ideas ready for when we need them.  Watching these class videos has made me realise that I would gain more time later, if I spent time now organising my supplies/ideas/tools etc.

I decided to start with writing a list of the tools I own, it really is a little embarrassing to think of how many tools I have, all of which I "needed" at the time of purchase - lol!  I stopped writing my list when I found my Distrezz-it-All made by Zutter.  I haven't had this tool for long, I bought it, used it once and my DH thought it was far too noisy to use, whilst he was working and he couldn't see the point of messing up perfectly straight edges!  I took it to one of my crops and showed it to my ladies, but non of them used it, they wanted perfect matting and layering too and couldn't see it's charm!

Well today, DH is out of his home office and whilst the cat was out, the mouse decided to make noise!  This card was partially made, just ready to stamp the greeting and stick, so before sticking, I used the opportunity to "Distrezz" all the bits before sticking and I love it!

What do you think....................?


I took the photo with the machine in the background so you know what to look out for!

The inspiration behind the Card Sketch I used, came from this weeks Mojo Monday, sketch challenge 259.

Please leave me a comment if you like it.

Happy crafting......with your own tools!
