Happy Scrappy Friends | Neglected Tools

Hello hello! :) Are you guys visiting from Cathleen? If not, you might want to jump right back to the Happy Scrappy Friends blog to start from the beginning. Our blog hop topic - you've guessed it from my blog title - is tools you haven't used in a long while. Now, we all have a few of those, amirite? In my case, it's worse... I have that fabulous set of nesting triangle dies. Completely unused for no particular reason. That is until this past weekend.

Since fall is slowly making it's way, I got out an older paper pad (Crate Paper Wonder collection) with lovely warm hues and gorgeous patterns that I thought fit the season quite good.

I originally meant to use lots more of the triangles or different sizes but you see, I'm back on the clean and simple train. I had three of the shapes overlap a bit and sewed down the center so I could bend the sides and get more dimension. 

The sentiment is from a cool everyday stamp set I received from Neat & Tangled for my Guest Designer spotlight in January. Also, don't the cork letters add to the fall feeling? I die cut those with a Studio Calico die and it did cut perfectly.

What's your most neglected tools right now? Border punches? Silhouette Cameo? I'm glad I've found that little die set above. Next up on my list would have been that Sew Easy hand-stitching tool from a few years back ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now, let's find out what Elly has to report on the topic!
