It's that time of year again!
The Christmas Gift Giving Season is a wonderful time to bring some joy to family, friends, and those less fortunate, that may tug at your heart strings!
I have to admit, there have been times when I was still shopping around, only days before Christmas, looking for just the perfect gifts. But sometimes, that's all part of the Holiday shopping experience, isn't it?
My family never wants to give me anything related to "work" for Christmas or even my birthday for that matter...but, I always have to remind them that my work never really feels like work because it's my PASSION! So...by all means, please, please family, fill my stocking up with pencils, paints, markers and paper. They will not go unused or forgotten!
With all the sales that will be happening this weekend, it's not hard to come up with a list of a few of my favorite tools, and must haves, in my Studio.
Black Friday Cyber Weekend Sale
First of all, Digi Doodles is running a Black Friday Cyber Weekend Sale!
So be sure to stock up your favorite Digi Doodles!
One of my Favorite tools that I use often is my Sizzix Big Shot. I also have a couple of other Die Cutters that I love, like my Spellbinders Platinum and my original Cuttlebug...they are all wonderful additions to any serious paper crafter, but I find myself using my Big Shot more often.
Right now, you can get a Sizzix Big Shot and other Sizzix products for 20% off but only until Midnight Nov 22.
I have amazing organization skills...in my mind, that is! When I get working on projects, all organization goes out the window, or I should say in the floor! But seriously, I need organization to concentrate, or else I will spend valuable time trying to reorganize and won't get my intended projects done! I guess that's why some people realized that Professional Organizer would be a great career...I wish I had one living in my Studio!
This is one of my favorite new finds,Spellbinders Collapsible Storage Organizer and...it's on sale right now! I you have many Die Templates among your must have tools, you will want to organize them in some way. I was only using a basket until I found this Fabulous Find!
Problem solved! They are on sale this weekend too!
I've ordered mine...how about you?
Cutting Cutting Cutting...
Now. if you print your digis and digi papers out, and create your own cards, and other paper crafts, then you already know how important it is to have a sharp accurate cutter to help make your cutting tasks simple, easy, clean and precise.
I've gone through several, and I won't name them all because I wasn't very happy with some of them, but when I found the Fiskars Portable Trimmer, I was SO, SO HAPPY! This cutter is very accurate, has a grid with an extension bar,an amazing wire guide so there's no guessing as to where you are actually cutting, and...it's light weight with little footies to help keep your trimmer in one place while you are cutting! I LOVE this trimmer!!
Another tool that I must have is my die cutting machines! I use them more often than not. They are Fabulous for making a variety of cards, gifts, signs, invitations, party favors, t-shirts, and the list goes on and on!
Starting today, Cricut will be having AMAZING Black Friday Deals on machines, 50%off materials and 80% off supplies to name a few...you might want to check it out!
Don't Forget to check out Silhouette's Black Firday Deals too!
It's the most Fabulous Time of the Year to SHOP!
But don't worry, if you, or anyone else on your list, is anything like me, a gift card to their favorite coffee shop may do just fine! Simple yes...but Oh So Satisfying!
