Valentine’s Day: A Favorite Tool

I love my Big Shot™, Scallop Edge and 3/16" Corner punches, but my favorite tool used on this card is the uni-ball Signo® Gel Pen #105021. Now, now…I hear the rumbling out there. A pen? Yes. A pen. But not just any pen. This is a vibrant white gel pen that flows smoothly. It is […]
