You need a crop a dile!!!
Makes setting eyelets easy!
DH got me the big bite crop-a-dile (you can go all the way to the center of a 12x12 paper rather than just around the edges) for Christmas and I would totally recommend it! I used to use the hammer type setter, and I was not very good at keeping track of all of the little attachment thingies. I love that this one is quiet and all of the parts are attached so I can't loose them in my messy scrap area (sorry, Kelly! ). If you use a 50% coupon at AC Moore or Michaels you could get one for about $20.
i have the original crop a dile...it works well but you can only do it near the edge of the paper. i got it before the "big bite" came out. I did use an eyelet setter in the past (the kind that you need a hammer and hard surface for, and it was cumbersome and loud. Back when I only used them occasionally, that was fine...now that I have the cropadile, I use eyelets much more!
ugh, i hate eyelets. i have the original setter. they are really cheap. i always had to bring mine into the garage to use the cement floor.
I have the Scraparatus and it works awesome! I used to have the hammer setter, but this thing is so much easier. I got mine off of QVC or HSN for $20.
