Templates come in all shapes and sizes and are a great asset to those of us who can't draw a straight line.

Can be used for creating faux-finishes, added to wax or sealing wax , applied dry directly to any porous surface, to paper or embossed images. It can also be added to any viscous medium, ie: oil, acrylic, gouache, varnish or clay.
Paper Making Kits
Paper Making Kits - We carry Arnold Grummer paper making kits, which we have found to be some of the better kits available.  Instructions are easy and projects are unlimited.
Brayers & Corrugators
Paper Corrugator Brayers & Corrugators- We carry several sizes of brayers. Some are 4" removable and interchangeable with other types of rollers, ie, foam. acrylic and soft rubber and some are permanently attached in smaller widths. The removable styles are great for wrapping with your favorite texture making material (i.e. rubber bands, twine, leaves, yarn, you be the inventor of the texture). The paper corrugator is the large 9" wide corrugator that will crimp larger pieces of material. They are extremely strong and will even corrugate thin metallic sheets.
Scissors, Punches & Other Cutting Tools
Scissors, Punches & Other Cutting Tools - This category is as long as you can imagine. We have decorative edging scissors of all shapes and sizes.  Punches are even more varied, including the Rotary punches which enable you to turn the punch image so that it is placed on the paper in the proper direction.  We have long-reach punches, squeeze- handled punches, corner rounders and corner cutters.  We also carry the Fiskars large paper trimmer and the smaller portable 12" paper trimmer that has a scoring blade as well as a cutting blade.  We even have "standard" paper cutting scissors in the barn.
Glues & Adhesives
Photo of Glues Glues & Adhesives - We find the line of Tombow glues to be some of the best. They come in liquid, stick and tape, are easy to use and relatively quick to dry. They are a quality product that is recommended for safe use in Memory Albums.
Perfect Paper Adhesive
Perfect Paper Adhesive - In gloss or matte format is also an exceptional product, that is safely used in scrapbooks. It can be used as a medium to mix with Pearl-Ex powders to create an acrylic paint, dries transparent, is UV protected and ph neutral.
