Christmas Gift Guide

I'm so rubbish with blogging, as I'm sure you can tell, but I thought it would be a good idea to add a post with a gift guide on it. This may say Christmas Gift Guide, but the items I've selected are definitely for all year round, and suit a wide range of budgets.

 

Let's start from the top:

 

 

Altenew Build a Flower kits - these are fantastic kits from Altenew, which contain stamps, dies and inks. Pretty much everything you need to get started making beautiful cards and memory pages. I've collated all the Build a Flower kits into one place, so you can pick your favourites here.

 

 

Concord & 9th Everyday Bouquet Turnabout (£43.00) - I love this kit, as it has everything you need to start your Turnabout journey. It comes with the stamps and dies you need, the jig to make things even easier, adhesive, cards and envelopes! Once you start turning, you'll never go back!

Pair this with the card and inks from Concord & 9th and you're well away!

 

 

 

You can't go far wrong with a decent stamping platform either. We only stock the MISTI, because in our opinion it is by far the best out there - I've tried so many, thinking I'll save a few pounds here and there, but the MISTI, in all three sizes really does give excellent results every single time, without fail.

 

 

 

If a stamping platform isn't for you, then you'll need a really good set of clear blocks. Our top recommendation is the set of 5 Comfort Blocks from Gina K (£32.00). These blocks are in really useful sizes, and come with a rounded edge, so you don't hurt your hands.

 

 

Our friends at Hero Arts always manage to knock it out of the park when it comes to amazing quality stamps and dies, and their Heroscapes in Lavender, Sunflowers and Tulips make some beautiful cards. If you haven't seen their Peek-a-Boo stamps and dies then you need to check them out too.

 

 

Lawn Fawn always produce great worker dies, and their Magic Iris, Shutter Card, Reveal Wheel, and Magic Picture Changer are tools you need in your craft box.

 

 

 

The Ton Peony Memories stamp set is a novel group layering set. It contains a whopping 62 stamps for only £40.99. The sentiments cover every occasion and the quality of these stamps is just 10/10!

 

Are you looking for some smaller gifts, or dare I say it, Stocking FIllers?

 

Here are my Top 10 Under £10:

 



 

There are so many great products under £10 that this was really a tough choice - special mentions go to: Unicorn Ink, any of the embellishments, and all of our amazing stencils.

 

Also, just for fun - my Top 10 Under £20!

 

 

Special mention goes to The Stamp Market, as everything is under £20!

 

I hope you've enjoyed this gift guide, it's been fun to put it together. There is so much to explore on our website, so dig in. We also have the wishlist facility now, so you can start a list of the items you want!

Happy crafting,

Emma
