Christmas Wish Lists & Stocking Stuffers

We have been working with Callie on various words that mean the same thing.  This week we taught her about big, huge, ginormous, etc. because we were looking at my wish list from the Occasions Mini Catalog.   Gargantuan is right!  At least it makes Christmas easy for my husband - he can get me a gift card to ME for ME!

That list made me start thinking of other Stampin' Up! products that would make excellent gifts.  These items are ones that I use as a crafter daily or have made great home decor projects with!   Click the name of the product to view more details about it!
 
1. Big Shot
Why do I love it?  The Big Shot lets me create in a quick and easy way.  With a toddler, it helps me maximize my crafting time and she can help.  My favorites are the embossing folders and all the framelits you can use with it to make perfect cuts and perfect embossing every time!
  
2. Magnetic Platform
Why do I love it?  This little tool keeps Framelits in place so that they cut out complicated or simple stamped images perfectly.  The magnets in the platform keep the metal framelits in place every time!
  
3. Stampin' Dimensionals
Why do I love it?  Everything needs a little dimension and these make your homemade cards look even better.  There are no better pop-ups on the market than ours, in my opinion, and I've tried a lot!
  
4. Stampin' Scrub & Stampin' Mist
Why do I love it?  Cleaning your stamps is a breeze with these products.  Just put a spritz of cleaner on one side of the pad with a little water and clean away.  When it gets covered with ink, just pull out the mats and rinse under the sink.  It doesn't leave behind lint or scraps like when you use paper towels or baby wipes!

  
5. Paper Snips
Why do I love it?  You can't beat a pair of super sharp scissors and that is exactly what these are!
  
6. My Digital Studio - CD or Download
Why do I love it?  Crafting is a breeze when you can do it as life happens around you.  I use MDS as my photo editing software and template tool as well as using it to design mini books, cards, and calendars.  There is something for everyone in this tool, whether you are a tech expert or a newbie! 


7. Stampin' Trimmer
Why do I love it?  So many features in one place that make cutting cardstock and DSP easier!  Some of my favorites - The arm locks so that we don't break the ruler off!  It will cut and score up to 14" and the guide is under the plastic so it won't wear off with use. 
  
8. Everyday Occasions Card Kit
Why do I love it?  20 cards in one box?  A killer stamp set that covers every occasion?  Two colors of versatile ink?  Instructions?  This kit comes with all of this and is a great gift in itself for the holidays.  All you need is to add some adhesive and scissors and you can craft at home and make some beautiful and colorful cards.

  
9. Hexagon Punch
Why do I love it?  I love banners but hate making them.  This punch lets me do that with ease and I can leave my OCD at the door.  It's also super trendy right now!
  
10. Build a Banner Simply Created Kit and Refills
This product line made me fall in love with home décor products again.  I have a Joy and Blessed banner up in my house and taught several banner classes.  I think the stencils work great with mixed media and the products are super easy to use.  I think every house looks brighter with a few perfectly chosen word banners sprinkled through it!


These gifts can be purchased from my online store or you can buy a gift card from me so that your loved one (or yourself) can enjoy these products during Sale-A-Bration or at your own party in the new year.  All gift cards come with a great new holder never shown in a class and the instructions to replicate it. 
This is also a great time to stock up on the stamp camp essentials.  As you know, I have you bring a "craft kit" to my house when you come to stamp camps.  The products below are what I ask you to bring!
Craft Kit:
The December mystery hostess code is ZFZTVF6C and I will draw on 12/20 for that one.  To be eligible, just place an order with this hostess code and if the party reaches $150, I will draw a name and that lucky winner will get the free merchandise!
 
Have a craftastic day,
Stacy
