Last-Minute Gift Ideas

There are only 17 days left until Christmas! Do you still have loved ones to buy gifts for? Here are a few suggestions:

My Digital Studio is a great gift for teens! They'll love making scrapbook pages, cards, and calendars for friends using the simple software. Plus when you order this exciting software suite, you'll receive a free Décor Elements piece valued up to $16.95!

Simply Sent card kits are a great ready-to-wrap gift and have everything you need to complete 10 cards. This is the perfect last-minute gift for card makers or people you think may like making cards!

Anyone who has a Big Shot will want the Alphabet Simple Letters Bigz die. It can cut through a variety of materials including vinyl, chipboard, and felt. This makes a great gift for a seamstress who would like to sew custom appliquéd pieces on her projects, someone who wants to create their own vinyl phrases to personalize her home décor, or any paper crafter who uses letters. And when you purchase this item, you qualify for a free Décor Elements piece valued up to $16.95!

Add the final touch to your gift that says "I was thinking of you when I bought this gift" by personalizing it with Décor Elements. Add an Upsy Daisy Décor Elements to a laptop or cut it apart and apply it to a cell phone. Put all of the toys from Santa together in one container and add the So Many Toys Décor Elements to it, or use individual letters to add monograms and names to your gifts. These extra special touches won't go unnoticed.

Let me help you make your last-minute shopping a little bit easier! Order online 24/7 at my website and within a few minutes you can have your shopping done and delivered to your door by Christmas!
