Every year Scrapbook.com comes out with a Gift Guide that is perfect for crafters and those shopping for them. The 2020 Gift Guide is finally here. Some of the most coveted products crafters have used over the last year are included. In addition there are a few new ones.
What is in the 2020 Gift Guide
You can see the 2020 Gift Guide up close and personal on my Instagram account. I go through it page by page in an IGTV. I also have created for you a convenient list of everything in it that will take you directly to the product. I did customize it a little bit. For the Distress line I selected five colors that are my favorite and blend beautifully together every time. If you would like more suggestions on other perfect color combos tell me in the comments. The Photo Play Paper Maker’s Series has a lot of options. I picked three favorites for the list. Make sure you check out the other options. I picked out my favorites from the Ink Pad Storage, Sticker Books, Decorative Dies, Big Shot Bundles and Albums for the list as well because the guide recommended the entire collection.
The Gift Guide
How to Use an Alcohol Ink Blower
One of my favorite products in the 2020 Gift Guide is the Alcohol Ink Blower. Scrapbook.com sent me one to feature in a video. It is a great tool for having a bit more control when using alcohol ink. The days of blowing in a straw are over with this on the crafter’s desk.
Personalize the Gift Guide
There are a few items in the gift guide that I did not know about, but want. The Photo Play Maker’s Series is a game changer for card makers. The card bases allow the crafter to create interactive and 3D cards with multiple dimensions, moving parts and flipping panels.
The Magic Mat is what my die cutting machine has been missing. It replaces one of the plastic cutting pads for clean cuts that are perfect every time. It is affordable, self healing and will last longer than the plastic cutting pads. It comes in several different sizes, so finding one that will fit your machine is good.
Every Crafter Needs
There are a few staples in the Gift Guide that every crafter needs. A Misti is a tried and true stamping platform that allows for perfect image placement as well as layering. Smart Glue is a versatile all-purpose glue that works on paper, foil and embellishments. It also dries fast. Mint Tape is the perfect temporary adhesive that will not tear your substrate and can be used several times. It is easy to tear because it is paper. Plus it’s pretty because it is mint. Storage Envelopes create a space for coordinating dies, stamps and stencils to live together without cutting through the envelope.
The One Product That Makes Me Go Hmmmm…
I need your feedback on the Heidi Swapp Minc Toner Stamping Kit. I saw this demoed at Creativation and thought it was nice, but took up a lot of room. I have avoided purchasing it because I am not sure I will use it much. If you have it, tell me in the comments why you like it.
So, what do you want this year? Tell me in the comments!
Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!
