25 Days of Christmas - Day 3

Hi everyone,
Welcome to Day 3 of the 25 Days of Christmas. Today, I am taking Lily to Michaels,  they have a unicorn slime event. This darn slime fad has gone on way too long in my opinion. Then we are all going to a Christmas party so it should be a fun day.

Today's project is a Christmas album. I will admit that I never put pictures in my album from last year but I plan on doing that very soon and sharing the completed album. Being on deadline for this blog project is getting me to finish some works in progress. The album uses paper from Carta Bella Very Merry Christmas. This paper really is super cute and retro. I have a video for you all with a super quick walkthrough of the album. If all goes well, I will show some of  the album later this month with pictures.
I also have a new Christmas gift list today. This is for the crafty person in your life. I will be sharing a My Favorite Things post later in the month so there might be some crossover.

The first item on my list is the most expensive but I so want this machine and its the Cricut Maker. It can cut almost any material around. If the Cricut Maker seems to be more machine then you can handle, I recommend the Cricut Air 2 which I have and I do love it but to be able to cut patterns and fabric is really awesome.
My second item is The Misti. I have the mini Misti which is about 20 bucks cheaper than the larger one. There has only been a handful of times that I wished that I had the bigger one so in most cases that mini one is perfect for most of your stamping needs. I know that there are knockoffs but this was the first and the one that I have. It really improves your stamping, less mistakes, less waste, it makes it easier to stamp a lot of the same image.
My third item is the 1-2-3 Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers. It was hard to select just one product from this company because they really have tons but this punch board allows you to make envelopes, bows, boxes and tons more so for the price you really get a lot. There are quite a few tutorials too on other things that you can use this for including making tabs.

I think a portable printer is awesome. I have the Pogo printer but it looks like that one is not available any longer but here is one that seems fairly popular. It's the HP Sprocket.

Next up is the Zig Clean Color Watercolor markers by Kuretake. These are a tiny bit of a splurge but they work as a watercolor medium but without water they do nicely as a regular marker.
I really want this next one too because I do make t-shirts. I just don't know if I make enough stuff but if the price comes down I am all in and that's the Easy Press by Provo craft. I really like the small profile and it looks easy to store.
Be sure to stay tune for my video on my favorite things. Where I share other crafty finds that would make great gifts for you or someone else in your life.
