Erase Away!

I want to share with you 2 types of erasers that are a must have for every paper crafter! The first is an artists kneaded eraser. It can be softened by "kneading" to any shape or size. it has somewhat of a Silly Putty texture... mine usually ends up in a ball shape! It is used for lifting off pencil marks and residue. It does not destroy the paper or card stock & leaves no eraser mark behind. Just lightly touch over the area! It can be found in the art department usually with the charcoal & sketching pencils. I love this eraser!

The second is eraser is an adhesive eraser. This eraser does exactly what it says... erases adhesive. I know many time I have went to far with the tape runner, or my Tombow glue has pooled from behind the flourishes I am always putting on my layouts. Just gently erase the adhesive tape, or the dried liquid glue with this & it removes the glue like magic!! It will not tear the paper when done with a light touch, although I have really rubbed it and still had good results! I have even been able to remove adhesive from a photo without damage.Both of these erasers can be found for under 2.00 each! It has saved many a layout for me!

Thanks for visiting my blog!
