Spike’s Ten Favorite Tools she cannot live without in no particular order…or

Ten Great Gift Ideas for the Crafter on your List..or

The Wish List to post on your fridge for the husband, partner, children in your life, so they know what to get you for Christmas

Gift Idea #1 ~Big Shot~You can emboss and die cut to your heart’s content! Sturdy and heavy-duty. Make flowers, envelopes, window cards, the possibilities are endless… ’nuff said.

Gift Idea #2 ~Glossy Accents~Fabulous for adding a clear highlight/accent or sticking on those difficult or odd-shaped objects. Ever had adhesive come off rhinestones? Glossy accents will fix it…that or see below 🙂

Gift Idea #3 ~I-Rock~A new addition to Spike’s favourites! Just with a light touch, add bling anywhere not only on cards but on fabric too!

Gift Idea #4 ~Xyron Sticker Maker~She originally thought that she would never use this and now she can’t put it down! Great for die cut letters and the perfect way to stick on ribbon!

Gift Idea #5 Slice~Love, love, love it for die cut sentiments from 1” to 4”!

Gift Idea #6 Scorer~Whether it’s the Martha Stewart scoring board or the Scor-Pal or the new portable Scor-Buddy with cutting mat, you can score your cards perfectly every time!

Gift Idea #7~Quickie Glue Pen~Have a spare one handy especially for the late night craft blitzes! Great for sticking on glitter and small items! You can add glue to the smallest corner! Re positionable when it’s blue and permanent when it’s clear.

Gift Idea #8~Ranger Craft Mat~Nothing sticks to this not even the Be Creative tape sticks! Great as a temporary palette and wonderful for an easy clean up after using alcohol inks or distress inks.

Gift Idea #9~Ranger Heat Tool~Perfect, super quiet and low blow for projects that need a delicate touch!

Gift Idea #10~Honey Bee Fine Tip Scissors~Nice and small, non-stick blades with a fine tip make them a great all-purpose scissor!
