Sizzix - Big Shot Machine - White and Gray

I've been raving about the Big Shot since Santa brought me one for Christmas. It's a great investment for those scrappers who like to dig in and get really hands on. Not only is it useful, it's fun to use and budget friendly, too.

Here's a video about the Sizzix Big Shot:

There are thousands of dies to create almost anything you can think of:

Not only that, she can use her machine with embossing folders, which create raised patterns that add beautiful texture to paper projects.

Die Cutting Accessories

These tools are handy to have if you're into die cutting. The Spellbinders essentials kit contains a Tool N One for removing die cuts from dies, which is especially nice for the more intricate dies, as well as a mat and a handy magnetic holder (because they are easy to lose track of when you're in the midst of a die cutting binge).

And for even more storage options, Sizzix has a storage caddy that fits right onto the machine for all the little tools and things that go along with die cutting. 


And of course, she'll need a place to store all those new dies!

Another cutting option in cutting machines is the Silhouette Cameo, the electronic cutting system that uses digital "cut files" for limitless creativity. She can create her own designs, or find tons of designs online. 


Here's a video for a little more about the Silhouette Cameo: also offers a free class on Cameo techniques.

If you know a papercrafter, I can guarantee storage is always an issue!
Check out this cute storage bag, perfect if she's into attending crops (a bunch of scrapbookers/papercrafters who get together to create).

Crafter's Bag

Paper storage is always an issue, since it's the most important ingredient in papercrafting, and most of us have oodles of it. Seeing papers neatly organized in paper trays specifically created for scrapbooking paper is a beautiful thing for any papercrafter.


And every scrapper has tons of little things--beads, buttons, ribbon, washi tape-- that beg for homes. 


It's a fact: scrappers have lots of pictures. You could consider an external hard drive or a cute jump drive, like the scissors-shaped jump drive below, for photo storage, or a cute mini-photo printer that she can use with her mobile device.

Another cool product are these acrylic blocks, which use cling stamps to allow for precision stamping (unlike the guesswork involved with the classic wood block stamps). They are generally more economical, and also take up less storage space.
