Stuff We Like: Scrapbooking Supplies
Creating a scrapbook is a wonderful craft activity when you’re stuck inside on a rainy or snowy day with your little ones. Scrapbooks are fun to put together, but best of all is the end result: a long-lasting reminder of precious, funny, exciting, or lovely everyday moments spent with family and loved ones. Here are a few products to add to your scrapbooking supply box:
The Big Shot
The award-winning Sizzix Big Shot Machine ($119 for machine only; $159 for machine and starter kit) truly does it all with durable rollers and a 6-inch-wide opening to die-cut or emboss with the entire Sizzix product library. The portable machine includes an extended multipurpose platform and a pair of standard cutting pads to create charming shapes for cardmaking, scrapbooking, home décor, fashion, altered art, mixed media, quilting, papercrafting, and other craft projects.
Organize and On-the-Go
The California Innovations Scrapbooking 8-in-1 Rolling Carry-All ($114) lets you take your materials with you wherever you go. The collapsible bag features a large main compartment, muiltiple interior and exterior storage compartments, an accordion drop-down compartment for files, a removable and adjustable shoulder strap, 38 tool and pen loops, and an all terrain cart with rugged wheels and an expandable, extra wide base.
