It’s that exciting time of year again when all the crafty sales are upon us! I thought it would be fun to do another installment of my Crafty Friends Gift Guide. I have a list of 10 gift ideas for the crafty people in your life or for yourself. These are items that either you or a friend would not normally think to buy. Kind of those crafty fun “extras”. Included on this list are new favorites of mine that I have worked with this past year and some old favorites that I would always recommend.
You can read my summary below or watch the video HERE where I go through and do a “show and tell”. I have also listed everything at the very bottom of this post with links to multiple shops. Feel free to leave a comment or email me with any questions you may have. Enjoy!

I recently got the Gemini for an early Christmas present and honestly don’t know what I did without it LOL! This electric die cutting machine has a higher price point, but is worth every penny. I love the larger platform and how well it cuts through those intricate dies.
The little Sidekick is a great option for the crafty friend who has everything. I like that it sits on your desk and you can quickly cut those tiny hearts and stars on the spot.
I love wooden stamps and this tool helps me line them up perfectly to stamp on my cards. I have a video HERE where I demonstrate how it works. A great gift would be to include this along with a few cute wooden stamps in a little basket.
Another great option for the friend who has everything. These markers allow you to color and blend all with one pen. I have another video HERE where I show them in action. This pack of basic primary colors is a great one to start with, but they also have the big one which I have linked below with all the colors.
If you’ve used the clear sparkle pens from Spectrum Noir, you’ll love these. They add sparkle as well as bright colors to your stamped flowers and other images. Great for people that can’t get the hang of water coloring (like me 🙂 )
Lots of dedicated Happy Planner users have been waiting for this craft themed planner. I can’t wait to use mine starting Jan. 1! How about that little Raskog cart image?!
I’ve discussed in this post about magazines as a great way to learn more about cardmaking and papercrafting. A subscription would be a great gift for that crafty friend. Here are links to a couple of options:
This adorable storage container looks great and holds a ton of stuff. I use mine for wood veneers, acrylic words and other small embellishments. Plus, it’s so fun to open and close!
Below is a summary of all the products I discussed in the video and above. I have included links to multiple shops–AMZUS=Amazon, SBC=Scrapbook.com CRT=CreateForLess, BLT=Blitsy, BLIC=Blick Art
