Those of you who are done with Christmas shopping and already have gifts prettily wrapped, I have two thoughts: 1) pfffftttt - overachiever! and 2) you can skip this post OR you could recommend it to someone who isn't done with their shopping yet. Who knows? Maybe it's your gift they are still searching for!
For the rest of us, I've put together a few gift ideas for the crafty people on your list who might like some new goodies. What crafter doesn't like new craft supplies?
1. Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine. Lightweight and portable, this workhorse die-cuts and embosses with a simple crank of the handle. This is a popular tool among papercrafters, however it gets plenty of use by teachers (for loads of fun classroom projects) and quilters (cuts through multiple layers of fabric at one time).
2. Big Shot Doctor's Bag. This stylish bag can be used for storing and/or transporting the Big Shot along with cutting pads and dies. This bag features two outside pockets, multiple inside pockets and a detachable strap.
3. Big Shot Die Storage Boxes. Available in small, medium, and large to keep dies neatly organized and stored. These stackable storage boxes have a fabric exterior, printed interior, and come with plastic inserts that can be adhered in the box or removed for use in a drawer.
4. Linen Photo Albums. These high-quality ring albums are available in two colors and come in popular 8" x 8" and 12" x 12" sizes. The stain-resistant finish can be embellished or left unadorned for simple elegance.
5. Simply Scrappin' Kits. These kits make scrapbooking quick & foolproof, and coordinate with Stampin' Up! colors and other products. Kits include 12" x 12" card stock, double-sided patterned paper, and card stock sticker sheets. Great for cardmakers too!
6. MDS 2 Software Discs. Choose from MDS 2 (Full Software) or MDS 2+ (Full Software + $500 in digital content). MDS 2 (My Digital Studio) software features intuitive digital designing that is easy to learn and easy to use, with free training available. Use to make cards, calendars, scrapbook pages, journals, swatchbooks, photobooks, CDs, DVDs, and more. Additional content is available on CDs and DVDs or as digital downloads online. Professional print services available directly through the software or print at home.
7. Stampin' Trimmer. The newly redesigned Stampin' Up! paper trimmer features a wider cutting base marked in 1/4" increments, an extended cutting arm for longer cuts, and an extra long cutting track that allows for a full 12" cut with cutting and scoring blades stored in the track.
8. Simply Scored Scoring Tool. A must have tool for creating projects with lots of scoring such as rosettes or boxes. The base accommodates 12" x 12" paper, with grooves every 1/8". Includes one stylus, three placemarkers, and instructions. Additional accessories available (sold separately).
9. Everyday Happenings Calendar & Display Case Bundle. This pretty monthly calendar for 2013 features a calendar and writing area on one side and a printed design on the other. Calendar case folds into a desktop display stand. Great stocking stuffer or gift for a teacher, neighbor, friend, or yourself! Printed cards could be upcycled for use on cards, scrapbook pages, and more.
10. Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps. Great gift idea for bakers everywhere. Impressions can be stamped in cookie dough, fondant, modeling clay and more. Available in three assortments; each assortment includes three stamps, one wood handle, instructions, and recipes.
11. Stampin' Up! Designer Fabric. Exclusive designs coordinate with other Stampin' Up! colors and products or use alone. This high quality fabric is 100 percent cotton in extra-wide fat quarters (27" x 18"). Regular Designer Fabric includes 3 fat quarters; Essentials Designer Fabric includes 10 fat quarters.
12. Watercolor Pencils. Great for any budding artist, these high-quality art pencils come in 24 richly pigmented colors to use dry as colored pencils or blend with a dampened brush, Aqua Painter, or Blender Pen for a watercolor effect. Precision engineered to resist breaking, they come in a sturdy tin storage container.
The perfect gift for your BFF, sister, mom, daughter, or really anyone. A Stampin' Up! Gift Certificate - available through me! - in various denominations. It's guaranteed to fit, can't possibly be the wrong color, and won't clash with the decor.
