If you are cutting chipboard or multiple sheets of paper, then this professional grade Rotatrim paper trimmer is the tool for you.  I’ve had my Rotatrim since 2013 and just love it. Best part – the blade is shelf sharpening! I have the RCM15 which cuts up to 15″ wide.  If you only plan to cut up to 12″ wide, then the RCM12 version of this trimmer is a bit less expensive and might be a good alternative for you.  This is by far my favorite scrapbook tool.

Fiskars Paper Trimmer

Fiskars - 12 Inch Premium Cut-Line Portable Trimmer - Blade Style I

Next up in my list of favorite scrapbook tools is my Fiskars Paper Trimmer. For cutting one sheet of paper or cardstock, and cutting small strips of paper my Fiskars paper trimmer is simply the best.  It’s light and the paper guide folds making it easy to transport to a crop.  I use mine daily on virtually every paper crafting project I make.  Fiskars stands behind their products.  If it breaks under normal use, they will replace it free of charge.  I’d had mine replaced.  It’s totally a no hassle process.

Paper Piercing Tool

We R Memory Keepers - Brad Setter and Piercing Tool

Not only is this a great piercing tool, I use the sharp point to remove tape backing on double sided tape. What a time saver. And I love that these do not roll around on my work surface.


Score Board

By far the best score board on the market. I don’t like the score tool shipped with the board, so my next favorite thing is the score tool I use with this board.

Score Tool

This is the perfect scoring tool to use with my score board.  The rounded ball tip keeps me from tearing the paper as I score it.  Plus the handle shape keeps the tool from moving on my work surface.

Corner Chomper

We R Memory Keepers - Crop-A-Dile - Corner Chomper Tool

There are lots of corner rounders on the market, however this is the only one that comes in various sizes and will cut through multiple layers of paper and chipboard.  It’s perfect when working on mini albums, as well as scrapbook layouts.  This one does it all, so it’s my fav!


We R Memory Keepers - Crop-A-Dile - Eyelet and Snap Punch Tool
This rugged hole punch will easily punch through layers of paper and chipboard. It punches two different size holes. You can also set eyelets with it.

Crop-A-Dile Big Bite

We R Memory Keepers - Crop-A-Dile II Big Bite
The long reach arm allows me to punch a hole anywhere on a 12″x12″ piece of paper or chipboard. It’s easy to use, will punch two different size holes and sets eyelets too!

Tim Holtz Scissors

Tonic Studios - Tim Holtz - Non-Stick Micro Serrated Scissors

These are by far my favorite scissors.  Noting sticks to them, they are so strong and durable, and I just love the soft flexible handles.  If I could only own one pair of scissors this would be it.

Tim Holtz Shears

Tonic Studios - Tim Holtz - Non-Stick Micro Serrated Scissors - 9.5 Inch Titanium Shears

For long cuts, I love these scissors. They have all the great properties of the short version with a nice long blade.

Scotch Tacky Glue

Scotch Adhesive Tacky Acid Free 4oz Bottle
This glue dries quickly and is clear when dry.  It has a strong hold. I use it to attach paper, gems and wood veneer to my scrapbook pages.

Tombow Mono Metal Liquid Glue

This is the best glue for attaching metal to paper.  I’ve attached many charms and other metal items to my scrapbook pages, mini albums and other paper crafting projects and none have ever come loose.

Double Sided Tape

J and V Enterprises - Tacky Tear Tape - 1/4 Inch - 27 Yards
Double sided tape, in a variety of widths, is a staple of my craft table. It is used on every project from scrapbook layouts to mini albums. This is my go to adhesive.
