    I love how you have both used the craft scratcher to achieve different looks. Would love to have seen Hannah use the Tim Holtz edge distresser instead of the MM's one, just to see if there is any difference.

    Laura, I would have never thought about using the scratcher that way. I can't wait to make some of that elegant linen. Hannah I always struggle with guy cards but you have inspired me with this one. I just wanted to say I love the craft pick as you can get larger holes the further you pierce with it.

    Hannah and Laura those are beautiful cards! I have never heard of the "scratcher" that looks very cool! I love the idea of retractable tools especially when you have a housefull of kids and pets!

    I didn't know that Tim Holtz even had a SCRATCHER; what a great idea! With such wonderful inspiration to use it, I'd love the chance to win one; thanks!

    Okay, I am self-confessed gadgetaholic! And how cool are these? Honestly, though, our crafting world is so much more fun and easy with tools like this! Thanks for sharing them with us.

    Well, now I NEED more of Tim's tools!! Would love to win one; I think that the scratcher would just be a fun tool. Love that linen look. Thanks for sharing.
