HeaderThis year, the holiday gift guide is coming to you in installments so you have plenty of time to digest all of the goodness! Each Monday, I’m bringing you my very favorite gift picks for crafters and creative peeps. I’ve only selected my favorite products so you won’t feel overwhelmed. This way you can digest it all and maybe actually add a few of these favorites to your own wishlist. I’ve put together a short video to give you a quick look at what I’m loving. It’s only two minutes so really – you have no excuse not to watch!


LittleMoreBeginnerAnnaGriffinMoreYou can grab the All About Kindness Card Kit HERE  – and while you’re at it, look around at all the other Anna Griffin card kits. I can tell you first hand that these kits are awesome. Even if you are an experienced crafter, these kits are great for making last minute cards for every occasion.The Anna Griffin style is romantic and feminine and I’ve really enjoyed creating cards that are a departure from my typical contemporary and modern aesthetic. If you want some inspiration for how to use your card kit, visit the Anna Griffin Card Kit Pinterest page.

FiskarsMoreThe Fiskars Tag Maker Punches come in four different shapes: the Simple punch,  the Label Tag punch, the Scalloped Tag punch and the Standard Tag punch. My recommendation is to start with the Simple or Standard shape since they are super versatile and will undoubtedly get lots of use this holiday season.

WoodStitchablesmoreThis January when I was attending the Craft & Hobby Association Tradeshow, I saw these adorable Stitchables for the first time and just loved how easy they were to use. The kits contain everything you need to make embroidered wooden embellishments that can be used in a ton of different ways. There are a ton of Stitchable shapes available:

Gingerbread House | Holiday Sampler | Cardinal Bird | Snowflake | Scalloped Ornament | Owl | Angel | Santa | Round Ornament | Snowman | Pointed Ornament | Christmas Tree | Gingerbread Man | Stocking

  1. My paper cutter is invaluable…it is my “go-to” tool for so many things! It’s actually the gift I’ve given to friends when they are “new” to paper crafting.

  2. For a beginner I think it’s a toss up between a really good pair of scissors or a good paper trimmer. I would probably say the paper trim simply because you can make such nice straight cuts with it, but a pair of scissors can cut all those fiddly shapes. Oh, decisions… decisions.

  3. Beginner craft supplies of my choice would be paper, stamps, colored ink and maybe a black ultra fine point sharpie/marker! So many possibilities from just these!

  4. love that gorgeous Anna Griffin product! My fav beginner craft supplies are clear stamps, GRIDDED acrylic block, Versafine onyx black ink, tonic paper trimmer & a scorpal, and of course, good quality cardstock!
