Craft Tools & Supplies I want to try in 2019

Yesterday I talked about my favorite craft tools.  So today I thought I would explore some supplies and tools I don't have but would like to try out.

Olfa Circle Cutter: Cutting shapes out of fabric.  It's my nemesis.  Yes, I've seen all the videos about how you can do it with your cutting machine, but I don't want to have to add stabilizer.  That's just another step.  Yes, I've bought the Accucquilt dies that do work, but it's time consuming and limited to preset sizes.  But recently I came across this tool, the Olfa Fabric Circle Cutter, and I was instantly intrigued.  After youtubing the official how-to video, I have decided this will have to be purchased.  It doesn't require stabilizer and looks pretty easy.  The one down side I see so far is that it only cuts up to just shy of 9 inch circles.  Do you have this cutter?  If so, give me your thoughts.

Glitter adhesive vinyl: Why does it seem that glitter adhesive vinyl is harder to find?  I mean anything with glitter should be readily accessible in my world!!  I recently read about StyleTech Glitter vinyl, so I think I will give that a shot.  Have you tried it?  Do you recommend another brand of glitter adhesive vinyl? If so, leave me a comment.

Omnigrip Ruler Grip: Now you may remember in my previous post that the Omnigrip Ruler is one of my absolute must have tools in the craft room.  But I don't have the ruler grip, and I think it looks like a simple, smart invention.  It's just a suction cup handle that sticks onto your ruler so that you have better control of it while cutting. Cool right?

Paasche Airbrush: My dad got this for me for Christmas, now I just need to figure out how to use it!  I'm kind of excited about the possibilities for painting with this tool!
Those are a few items on the affordable wish list.  I have my "if I win the lottery" craft tool wish list, but I'll save that for another day. ; )

Thanks for stopping by!
