Luxury Visited !

Hello Friends ,
This is Mallika here and today I ll be talking about 10 Luxury must haves for crafters which will either define your project and give it a whole new look  or make your work a little easier.
Till now , I have always bragged about the mandatory tools which are used by us , so there was no point writing about Top 10  must have tools for crafters .
Lets get started . Fastened your seat belts as we are going fly in a luxury first class plane :P :P
I simply love all 10 listed below and I m sure you will love them too .

Have No 1  
Perfect Pearls 
This is such a delicate binder powder which defines your projects in such a way that you cant even imagine .
I love using it with Melt Art . You can use it with your decoupage projects , mixed media projects .
Simply sprinkle few on flowers and see the effect for yourself .
Have a look at the picture below . You can see how my texture has come up on UTEE behind that metal heart because of perfect pearls .

Have No 2 
Tonic Scissors 
This is one product , which I can guarantee - Once you start using it , you just cant use any other sciccor .
I call it "mere laal kaichi ". My roommate knows if I cant find it , my heart might sink .
{ Mera jeevan sachi kora kagaj hoga iske bina }

Have No 3 
Glitter tray and Rack 
This tray is by far one of the best funnel trays I have ever used . Tray features an opening in one corner to easily brush excess glitter back into container . the corner hole prevents glitter or powder from flying away . 
This tray also has a unique feature , that the back of tray has pegged rack which makes it super easy to use Martha fine glitters on 3d objects .  All I can imagine is a glitter ball :P

Have No 4 
Mountain/Deckle Trimmer
This is an angel trimmer for vintage lovers . Check the video enclosed and see for yourself .
Like always You tube acting like a bummer ! Hold on ! We will be back with this in awhile !

Have No 5
Inkssentials Craft Sheet
Messy table after mixed media ? Cant remove the stains after applying gesso ? Hot UTEE stuck to your cutting mat ? This is the right solution . After starting to explore in Mixed Media I have started loving this craft mat . I can clean the mat easily by a damp cloth . Craft sheet is heat resistant so when you make a beautiful texture on your project which has to be dried there and then { Heat tool by Ranger } by some impatient souls like me , it comes to rescue .
My pg owner would have thrown me out by now , if staining would have continued on the furniture .

Have No 6 
Crop a Dile 
If by far till now I calculate , the best product which We R memory keepers have come up with is this Crop a Dile . My craft is never complete without this . Let is be tags in which I have to settle eyelets or making holes for binding rings into my books , this is my rescue partner .
I love this tool specifically over all the hole punchers in the market is because of its power !! Singham se bhi jyaada power hai ismein !!
It can even punch hole in a CD ! You can make beautiful Recycled cd albums by using these .
A lil secret - I punched a hole in my debit card first time out of excitement when a dear crafty friend got it shipped for me from USA two years back . I still remember two years back how Riti Poddar told me "mallika tum yeh lelo , tumhe pyaar ho jaaega isse "

Have No 7 
I love using this to chomp my corners into round shape and giving it a complete look . 
I have got this tool finally like 2 weeks back and I am totally loving it . 
I have used edge rounders of many companies including jeff and EK SUCCESS , but I love my Corner Chomper most . 
The best part is that can chomp even a chipboard . Mini albums get a finished look if you round there edges.

Have No 8 
Terrifically Tacky Tape
Yeh kyun chaahiye ? { why do we need this }
Answer - Perfect Finishing !
For me , life of project is very important .
Many of you would say , why not used simple reasonable wonder tape ? I use specifically this tape as it justifies the name Tacky .
My papers never come off the project , I dont have to be scared that my paper , embellishments would come off the project after a certain period of time .
Go for it once , You will be hooked to it .

Have No 9 
Diamond Dust 
Once upon a time in a far fairy land , there lived a handsome prince who fell in love with this beautiful Princess .
The prince asked the princess to marry him. 
The princess replied " If you want to marry me get me a fairy dust which shine like stars "
The Prince wandered here and there and met a witch who ran a shop called Flora Craft . The witch asked him to pay Rs 300 and gave him a bottle named  "Diamond Dust "
The princess overwhelmed by the sparkle of these fairy diamond dust finally said yes to the Prince and they lived happily ever after . 
This is what came to my mind when I saw these twink lets . They are so so so pretty !!
My words will never do justice to this amazing product , neither can pictures tell  that result they gave in real .

Have No 10 
Heart Attack Tool 
Dil ka daura nahin hai yaar !! Its just a tool .
This is another love of vintage premi like me . I love giving the edge torn look to my projects using this .
I still remember this tool came in my First DT pack and since then it has always been beside my right hand on my craft table .
The Heart Attack Tool slides onto your finger and features a scraping blade and sanding side for distressing even small hard-to-reach areas on your paper project.
You can see the edge of the layered paper used . 

I hope you all have enjoyed my post and please do leave your comments / compliments / questions below.
