This tool kit includes it all. You will need all of the items from the basic kit and the advanced kit plus add these items. Versa mat (this mat is two sided: one side is a self healing side and the other foam to help with stamping, the versa mat also includes measurements and measures 13x13 so it is perfect for a 12x12 page), sanding kit (this gives added dimension to your edges and can also create some fun backgrounds), scoring stylus (this is a versatile tool that can either be used for dry embossing or for scoring - combine scoring with the sanding kit and create a whole new look), bone folder (this is great when you need to make folds with cardstock or b and t paper), and last but not least the piercing tool kit (this is great for paper piercing, starting a brad, or using the embroidery floss). With all of these items your creativity is endless. Grab your favorite paper, stamps, inks and embellishments and go to town.
