We R Memory Keepers Crop A Dile and Eyelet Collections

Home improvement projects always leave me feeling a little left out. Why should the guys just get to play with tools? The good news is that you can add a little umph to your tool collection with today’s steal, the We R Memory Keepers Crop A Dile and Eyelets. This tool is so amazing that if you’re not careful you may find it working it’s way into your husband’s tool stash. Good thing it has a pink handle so that it may help thwart any missing appearances!

If you love eyelets and have not had the pleasure of owning a Crop A Dile then you are in for an absolute treat! No more hammers and waking the kiddos at 3am because that’s when creativity strikes and an eyelet must. be. set. The Crop A Dile is as quiet as a whisper and works lickety split with the gentle squeeze of the handle.

If you haven’t had the chance to use one yet, here’s the jist of how it works. Note: You aren’t seeing things. My Crop A Dile happens to be green!

Step 1: Select which size hole you’d like to punch. You can set an eyelet that is either 1/8″ or 3/16″ in size. Gently squeeze handle and the cutting mechanism will pop out of the head. Pretty neat!

Step 2: Insert project into correct side of tool to allow for a large or small eyelet. Punch hole where desired. Note that there is a moveable measuring guide, that you can lock into place. This comes in handy when setting multiple eyelets in a row a specific distance from the edge of your paper. Perfect placement every time!

Step 3: Squeeze handle and punch a hole. Easy peasy!

Step 4: Insert your eyelet into the perfectly punched hole.

Step 5: Twist the head of the Crop A Dile until the coordinating sides match up. An easy rule to remember is that 1 goes with A (3/16″ eyelets) and 3 goes with C (1/8″ eyelets). The other cube combinations allow for the perfect setting of snaps, grommets and other decorative eyelets.

Once you have the correct setting, insert the eyelet and paper into the setting part of the tool and give it a squeeze!

Step 6: With very little effort and best of all no noise your eyelet is set!

If you’d like to see further direction on how to use the We R Memory Keepers Crop A Dile and some cute project ideas, you can check out this video found on the We R Memory Keepers website.

I love that with almost no effort at all the Crop A Dile can chomp through paper, chipboard, acrylic, leather and metal! My husband is the incredible shrinking man, so he’s found a use for it a time or two to create new holes on his belt.

I even had some fun decorating this bucket. I think this will be headed to my mommy who is simply the best. I think I’ll fill it up with some chocolate and give it to her as a thank you for altering the “perfect” dress for my daughter’s Junior Prom this weekend. Because you really can’t go wrong with chocolate, can you?

Believe me when I say, YOU. NEED. A. CROPADILE. Oh and the rainbow of eyelets aren’t too shabby either.

Have a great day and check in tomorrow for some fantastic Friday fun!

WRMK Cropadile | Mid Week Mojo #50

WRMK Cropadile | Mid Week Mojo #50

Can you believe it? We have reached another milestone in our Mid Week Mojos. Today’s steal, the We R Memory Keepers, Cropadile is the perfect way to celebrate the Gold Club  milestone. Life as a crafter without a Crop A Dile is incomplete. :) I cannot say enough good about this tool and it’s truly one that should be in every crafter’s collection.

If you haven’t had the pleasure of using a Crop A Dile, once you do you will never go back. There is so much beauty to being able to set eyelets in the wee hours of the morning without making so much as a sound.

Many of you have inspired and touched me over the past 50 weeks and my life is greater for it. In return I wanted to take a moment this week to pay special tribute to some wonderful friends of mine who recently lost their son in a tragic accident.Yesterday while I was enjoying the celebration of “Gare Bear’s” life during his funeral services, I wondered how I could give back to my friends and realized then that I would take this time to pay tribute to them as parents and to little Gare Bear and the joy that he brought to so many in his short little life with this single photo creation.

To my friends, thank you. Thank you so much for being such stellar examples as parents. Even though you are relatively new parents in the grand scheme of things, you both certainly had a home filled with love and and that permeated not only throughout your home but your actions. Thank you for being an example to me in the way that you handle challenging situations with three boys. Thank you for merely being you and for reminding me about the important things in life. I hope that this little tribute to Gare Bear will bring you comfort at this time of sorrow.

I used the Crop A Dile to set a few eyelets along the heart border of this page to add a little bit of interest.
