Product: Watercolor Paint and Washi Tape
Cool Factor: The paint colors! Soooo pretty! And washi tape that’s large enough to cover an entire card front!? Talk about a time-saver!
Company: Hero Arts
Product: Glimmer Metallic Ink and Christmas tree Fancy Die
Cool Factor: Hero knows ink, and Glimmer is no exception. It’s rich and shimmery! And a Christmas card made from this die is sure to be a favorite with its script font and window design.
Company: Cutter Pillar
Product: Glow LED Light Board and Crop Trimmer
Cool Factor: The blade on the trimmer self sharpens as it’s used, and it cuts with such precision. It even has a light to mark where the cut will be, which is SO nice! The LED Light Board has a glass top option for cutting, it’s super thin, and it can even run on batter power for up to four hours at a time. Great for tracing, cutting, and even quilting.
Company: We R Memory Keepers
Product: Emoji and Word Punch Boards
Cool Factor: Planner fans will love that you can use these to embellish planners using nothing more than cardstock. But they’re also great for card making, scrapbooking and other paper crafts. Plus, the font looks like a label maker, which is extra nifty!
Company: Freckled Fawn
Product: Scrapbook Inserts
Cool Factor: It’s just a piece of plastic… or is it? Nope! This is 20-page protectors that fit perfectly in traveler’s notebooks. Now, you can keep the TN pages you create protected under high quality plastic sleeves. Awesome!
Honorable Mention: I can’t resist sharing the adorable new Dream Big collection by Simple Stories. Talk about a cute collection. As a mom of two girls, I’m head-over-heals for the mermaids, unicorns, rainbows, and other whimsical motifs.
