Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide & Wish List

Hello friends! It's Nicole and am I ever in the holiday spirit! If you're in our part of the globe, you awoke to the shimmering white snow that adds to all the excitement. Are you out and about preparing for the days ahead?

If you're anything like me, you:
  • are currently scrambling to finish that shopping (why again did I wait until today to start?!)
  • are hoping and wishing that Santa brings you a gift certificate from Creations Galore!

Therefore, in all the Christmas shopping buzz, I compiled some must have items that would be perfect to:
  • wrap up for that crafty loved one in your life 
  • purchase with that sparkly gift certificate I'm hoping for (we open at 10 am December 26th, we'll see you here)

Stamps by Judith Sticks and Stubbies
So many uses - scrapbook layouts, creating backgrounds, accents to other images, decorating the 'Tree For All Seasons' and more! 

Smash Pads 
You can never have enough. Add them to your Smash Books or other layouts for fast, easy journaling. Great prompts too!

Distress Stickles
I love all Stickles, but the Distress line has a rock mica instead of glitter, creating a completely different look and safe to dry with a heat tool! 

Distress Inks
Another Distress product? yep. Use them like an ink pad, create harsh lines by adding ink from the pad directly to paper, distress edges with the applicator tool, create full backgrounds... So many techniques with these inks. They come in such a wide range of colors and can be used with Copics!

QuicKutz Dies
I've got my eye on a few 2x2 dies that will be perfect for scrapping some camping adventures and road trips this summer. And at 50% off, it's never too early to plan ahead!

Chipboard Embellishments
Add paper, mist, ink or paint. These specific embellishments are coated which becomes a perfect canvas for marble techniques with alcohol inks. 

Prima Flowers
Gorgeous florals and stems for your cards, layouts, and other craft projects. I'm currently gushing over these crochet and doily style flowers.

American Crafts Embossed 12x12 Paper
Do you see that texture?! Can't wait to create something with this collection. 

Bo Bunny Jewels and Buttons
Perfectly matched to the colors of their beautiful papers. Absolutely gorgeous embellishments.

I told you I liked them. 

American Crafts Ribbon Spools
Premium ribbon for only $1. I'll take one of each!

Eye Candy
Swarovski Crystals add just the right amount of sparkle. Because they're sold individually ($0.10-$0.25), you can pick and choose the color and quantity you need. 

Glitter Pens
Glitter. In a pen. Color stamped images, write sparkling sentiments, and more. Mess free and no drying time!

Backround Stamps from Market Street Stamps
Large enough to cover the surface of an A-2 card, there's endless possibilities with their background stamps. Add just a little pattern or a whole lot. They're made from high quality polymer and create crisp stamped images. 

Kraft Resist Paper 
Tim Holtz has done it again. Spray it with mist, add some stain, or ink it up. Color resists the beautiful paper design. 

Pearl Pens
Add a faux pearl embellishment with these pens. My fat fingers rejoiced at this discovery! No more tweezers, tacky glue, or loosing one of the small embellishments on your craft table.

Crate Paper Embellishments
I've fallen in love with the embellishments from Crate Paper's Peppermint Collection. And they'll be put to good use with all the pictures that will be taken over the Christmas weekend.

What fun! Thanks for joining me today. Stop in soon to pick up those last minute stocking stuffers or treat yourself to a little something. Merry Christmas!
