Crop-A-Dile Does It All . . . Quietly

The revolutionary Crop-A-Dile from We R Memory Keepers has made hole punching and eyelet setting a cinch for the busy scrapbooker. With this all-in-one tool, crafters can punch through materials thick and thin and effortlessly set eyelets, snaps, and other metal embellishments.

The following features also make this sanity-saver a scrapbooker's best friend:

  • Complete tasks quickly and quietly. Banging and pounding are now distant memories!
  • Punch 1/8" and 3/16" holes and set 1/8" and 3/16" eyelets.
  • Punch through paper, leather, plastic, metal, chipboard, acrylic, fabric, and wood.
  • Space holes at consistent distances with the help of locking sliders on the punches.
  • View punch position through a window in the hole-punch arm.
  • Tote the compact tool to crops for on-the-go assistance.


Dot embossing on paper is easy, just follow these three steps:

1. Set eyelet setting to C4 to emboss small dots or A4 for large dots.

We R Memories
This company makes good, solid tools. Also, not very complicated with user-friendly, intuitive instructions. I am also interested in the new binding machine. It is on my wish list.
Cricut Expression
This machine is the ultimate. I think that the video should also show setting the pressure and speed buttons in addition to the size setting. It's all important information. Working with the Design Studio & the Cricut expands the Cricut's capabilities. Woo Hoo!
Creatopia looks interesting. Like the idea of being able to emboss a 12 x 12 sheet all at one time. Very cool. Anxious to see more videos of the other accessories in action.
I have had my eye on this for a while now and would love to add it to my collection, from the tape runner to the 900 machine, I love them all!
Xyron Creatopia
That is one cool machine! Of course I want one! I am the Gadget Queen and I must have everything cool! ;-)
