Crafter’s Ultimate Wish List

  • Craftwell USA eBosser Embosser and Die Cutter This is my go-to machine now- electric, hands-free, and very compatible with MOST of the dies I use (Fiskars Fuse excepted.) Nice footprint, too. Under $200. (Review here.)
  • Fiskars ProCision Trimmer A serious paper trimmer! Great for heavy-duty cutting and lots of thicknesses. This big bad boy has earned it’s place on my worktable. Under $70. Review here.
  • Silhouette Portrait For those folks who don’t want to collect cartridges, this is my favorite digital die cutter. It’s smaller than the portrait, is lightweight, and easy to use with your computer. Plus you buy just the artwork you want when you want it- on demand! Review here.
  • SliderWriter Laser Guide This tool appeals to those precision-oriented crafters who like things to LINE UP. Make them happy with this cool gadget. It wins over the competition because it’s adaptable for lefties and righties as well as offering angled laser lines. Under $60. Review here.
  • We R Memory Keepers – 360 Crafter’s Bag  This is an amazing crafty tote for traveling or storage. SO MANY POCKETS! Review here.

    All I’m asking for this year are gift cards to Joann’s, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Marshall’s, and Tuesday Morning. Not much, eh? LOL I like to be able to buy whatever strikes my fancy. How about you, what’s on your wish list?
