What's in Santa's bag for the Krazy Craftin' Crew? Blog Hop December 1!

Have you been a good girl or boy this year? Are you on Santa's Naughty or Nice list? Better yet, would Santa know what to get the crafters who made it onto the Nice List?  After all, it's the Elves who are really the handy ones, you know.

The Krazy Craftin' Crew comes together today to present things we're either like under the tree, or things we'd make for the fellow crafters on our gift list.

First up, let me show you what's on my Christmas list -- and it's something that I think every scrapbooker would want.

The Canon Selphy CP900 is a very small (the size of a shoebox) wireless photo printer that promises to get the photos off your cell phone or iPad and into those scrapbooks. Optionally, there's even a battery for photo printing on the go. The printer is self-contained, and the consumable is the pack of paper and ink that is purchased complete. The pack that Santa's bringing me will print 108 4x6" photos. There are other sizes available as well. Together -- with the printer and one pack of refill paper/ink, this gift is about $100 USD. 

Use the Canon Selphy in tandem with Close To My Heart's newest Scrapbooking On The Go program called "Picture My Life", due to be released after the first of the new year. With "Picture My Life," I plan to use the divided page protectors to insert designer elements (art, journaling spots, titles, etc.) and my Selphy pics to finish pages quickly and easily -- without the fuss and muss of design, glue, scissors, etc.  The new CTMH Picture My Life program is also on my Wish List!

Now, for the gifts you want to make for your crafty friends, why not get a cute pink "Adhesive Tape Gun" (ATG) by 3M, and bling it up with Dazzling Diamonds adhesive rhinestone resins from The Buckle Boutique?  That's what I did to my own ATG, here:

While I hand-cut (regular ol' scissors) the silver/clear background here and the flowers, I wanted my name to be set a little more formally. Did you know that Dazzling Diamonds can be easily cut using your Cricut, Pazzles, OR Cameo?!  This time, I used my Cameo to cut out the word Ellen (yes, my real name!) for the ATG. It makes me smile each time I sue this gun.

If  you'd like to try out some Dazzling Diamonds, The Buckle Boutique is offering a shopper's special this weekend in celebration of Black Friday - Small Business Saturday - and Cyber Monday.  Go to The Buckle Boutique and enter the promo code happyholiday15 to get 15% off your order now through December 2.

Now it's time to send you down the blog hop lane to see what other goodies the KCC would like to see in Santa's bag. Your next stop is:  Robin Lane at Create-A-Latte.
