The Versa Mat!!
This is, to me, the ESSENTIAL crafter's tool. I LOVE my versa mat! As you can see, it's been VERY well used.
On this side, it has every quarter-inch marked off for those days when I want to make sure everything lines up evenly (And if you ask my friends, they'll tell you that's a rarity. I think that handmade items have more character when they're not perfect!) For the scrapbook crowd, it's a full 12x12. (What a guaranteed way to make sure your pictures and embellishments are placed evenly!!)
On the other side, it's foam-padded. Since I started stamping, I've learned that nothing is more frustrating than when I get that stamp loaded up with ink and perfectly placed on the card stock, to find out when I remove the stamp, that the ink didn't transfer evenly! By using the reverse side of the Versa Mat under the card stock, I get a clean, complete stamped image every time.
This is always the FIRST tool I pack whenever I'm traveling for a crop or a weekend away with my scrappin' sisters!!
