Also known as "scrap" or "patterned" paper, designer paper adds design and visual texture to your pages and is available in every color and pattern you can imagine. Colorbok's 12-inch Designer Wild and Free Paper Pad is a good choice for beginners because it includes 50 pages of unique designs in a rainbow of colors.  

"Substantial weight. Clear printing. Pretty images. I would recommend." says Caro in their five-star review.

EK Tools Precision Scissors $11.75

EK Tools multicolor Precision Scissors for scrapbooking with safety cover

Basic scissors that deliver crisp, clean edges are a must, and EK Tools' Precision Scissors really deliver. They have a precision tip for detailed cutting on paper, vellum, and photos, non-stick blades that cut right through adhesive-backed paper, and comfort grip handles for right or left-handed use.

"These are by far the best craft scissors I have ever purchased. These are replacing my "cutter bee" scissors (made by EK tools) that I purchased in 2002! The "non stick" feature really just means that the adhesive is easy to clean off the scissors. They are very sharp and have very sharp points, so use caution. They are very precise!" says Ljw979 in their five-star review. 

 3L Scrapbook Adhesives $6.19

 3L Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Squares in original packaging

While there are all sorts of adhesives available, we like 3L's Scrapbook Adhesives. They're easy to use, won't make a mess, and the refillable tape dispenser rolls out tiny archival-quality acid-free white adhesive squares with precision. Choose from dots, squares, strips, or repositionable dots. 

"I make and sell cards and I have went through many, many, many packs of these. These really do a great job and the adhesive is strong. I don't worry about the quality of my cards - I am confident they will not be falling apart thanks to this adhesive." says Cheyenne Hinrichsen in her glowing review. 

Firbon A4 Titanium Paper Trimmer $10.99

Cut paper to any size with precision with the A4 Titanium Paper Trimmer. Designed to cut A3, A4, A5 paper, photos, cards, laminated things (up to 1.5mm thickness), and more, it's a safe and easy way to get accurate measurements and clean lines every time you cut. 

"I absolutely love this product. I also purchased a guillotine cutter and expected that would be my primary tool, however I use this Firbon cutter so much more. I've used it to cut cardstock, laminated cardstock, sticker paper, clear (really thick) sticker paper, presentation paper, and standard paper. I've never had an issue, it cuts smooth and straight." says Katrina in her glowing review.
