Day 6 (and Last) of Holiday Gift Guide

(This is the 6th and final day of my Holiday Gift Guide. Hope you are finding some fun ideas!)

Here are my last ten ideas for you. I hope you found something you think your loved one will love. Remember, if you click on the links to head over to Simon Says Stamp, you will get 15% discount and free shipping over $75. A big thanks to them! Here we go…

Every cardmaker looks for new and different ways to make cards. Something fun? Clear cards. Clear cards are such fun. I have lots of examples on my blog (search on “acetate”) – I use them a ton. The pack comes with clear cards (super thick and oh so nice), white inserts and envelopes. (Click HERE for more info.)


Here is one example of a clear card I have done. So much fun to use.


12×12 patterned papers can sometimes be intimidating with loud and large patterns. This is one reason I love 6×6 paper pads and use them almost exclusively. They are fabulous for cardmaking and scrapbooking – the perfect gift. (Click HERE for more info.)


Sometimes the simplest gifts are the best. I am loving these simple Stardust Glitter Pens. They are super fine tip and add just the tiniest bit of sparkle. Nothing over the top – just a little. Perfection. One of my favorite things to use these for is to trace a stamped greeting with this pen so it shines a touch. Your crafty gal will love it – and it is a steal. (Click HERE for more info.)


I get a lot of people asking what notecards and envelopes I use. I always use Hero Arts Hero Hues stuff. The cards are nice and thick and white on the inside. And the paper packs are great for cutting the vertical 4.25″x11″ pieces to fold into a card. I especially love their envelopes – they have a unique flap that I adore (see the photo). A great gift would be a box full of these – colorful goodness. (Click HERE for more info.)


I find myself using Mini Misters a ton. I keep a few with water (who wants to stop creating to refill?) and several with different colors of Perfect Pearls. So, I really like having these little organizers. And it comes with 12 misters – perfection! (Click HERE for more info.)


The black enamel? Perfect for cute little eyes on stamped animals. The white enamel? Perfect for little dots to accent cards. When you squeeze out these White and Black Enamel Accents, they immediately go into a tiny perfect ball. A must-have. And it is costs close to nothing. :) (Click HERE for more info.)


OK. You have to admit – Doodlebug’s Buttons are so stinkin’ cute. I can assure you that every crafter would love some of these. The colors and quality are fab – yum yum yum. (Click HERE for more info.)


Here is a fun necklace I made this them. Love these buttons…

I love die cutting. And if your crafty loved one has any kind of die cutting machine, you will want to get her some My Favorite Things Die-namics. These are the cutest, most inexpensive dies in town. They can be used with the Cuttlebug, Big Shot – anything. Another great thing: They used to offer some dies in a stamp+die combo, but now offer them all separately! My favorites? The Framed Greeting label, Notched Tag (adore the small heart and star), Polka Dot Greeting, Well Worn Greetings (great to layer – so lovely), Layered Labels (again fab for layering) and Rolled Roses. Oh, and this company is based in Florida and the owner is so very nice. (Click HERE for more info.)

I mentioned earlier this week my love of Memory Box Dies. I wanted to point out one in particular – the Round Buttons. I love the idea of creating faux buttons. Buttons work on just about any card, but can often add too much bulk for shipping. This is a great solution! (Click HERE for more info.)

This gift idea is the cheapest (free) but definitely the most valuable. Give your crafty gal a card promising hours of “creative time” – where she can create and forget about all the craziness that is life. She will love ya for this one.

Hope these help. Happy shopping. :)
