Cool Tools Vol. 2 {Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine}

Hello friends! Have you stopped by the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking blog this week? We're sharing the scoop on our newest special issue, which is on newsstands NOW! It's Cool Tools Vol. 2! I have a few cards in this issue, so I thought I'd share one of them with you. . .
I used Sizzix Banner Framelits to create these triangles. I die cut banners, and then die cut the center out with the smallest die. Then I layered the triangles into a fun pattern. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches, and the gold stripe of Stampin' Up gold paper was a fun finishing touch. 

Cool Tools Vol. 2 is all about inspiring you to use your tools. Those decorative scissors, and crimper at the bottom of your drawer? Yeah - it can totally do cool stuff. You'll find ideas for die-cutting machines, punches, scoring boards, stencils, and so much more. You can find it on newsstands where you buy crafty magazines, or you can pick it up in the Scrap & Paper Shop - in print form, or as an instant download! (Love that instant gratification, don't you!?) 

But before you go. . . . .I happen to have an extra copy of Cool Tools Vol. 2. I wonder what I should do with it??????? Maybe - just maybe, I should share it with one of my lovely crafty friends!? Leave a comment, and tell me about one of your most neglected crafty tools. I'll choose a winner on Monday, October 20th to win a copy of this issue, plus whatever other goodies I can fit in the envelope! :) GIVEAWAY IS OVER. THANKS FOR PARTICIPATING!
