Three Things : Holiday Gifts for Scrapbookers

A short & sweet Three Things this week featuring three cool gift ideas for people who like to capture life + make stuff.


To Capture: My favorite camera strap from Emily Falconbridge (variety of colors $32).

To Create: My favorite adhesive refill pack. A practical gift, this is just one of those things that is so nice to have in-stock. It’s never fun to run out. ($24.29) Make sure your gift recipient also has the regular adhesive (you need the outside for these refills to fit inside).


To Document: My favorite Moleskine blank books for jotting down stories, ideas, and pasting bits of life inside. ($15.95)

    That red Moleskin really catches the eye. I think my next one is going to be color so I can easily see it in my purse.

    Love, love, love the Moleskine journals. Just wanted to let you (and others) know that Moleskine recently introduced some new colors in a series named Volant. They have fewer pages than the traditional journals, but come two to a pack.

    Oh yes! I have one of Emily’s camera strap on my camera right this very minute. In pink!
    And I have very happily switched to Kokuyo adhesive after many unhappy moments with another brand.
    Love those journaling books.
    I am also knee deep in red felt squares, making the gorgeous garland. Can’t wait to get it done!

    I purchased the Kokuyo adhesive a while ago on your recommendation, Ali, and it is seriously the best adhesive I’ve ever used. It’s really tacky, smooth to apply, I’ve never had it gum up and the tape has never twisted or broken, and it is really good for applying to irregular shapes (like chipboard letters) because you don’t get gummy, gluey edges.
    I know, sad that I get so geeked out over glue, but what can I say?
    I agree – this would be a great gift for any scrapbooker!

    I have always loved Moleskines (I have about 3 of them floating around right now), but gee; why are they so EXPENSIVE?! :-/
    (Rhetorical question, BTW)

    Love the camera strap!
    I have a question somewhat related to gift-giving, but not related to this post:
    I wanted to make a mini book for a good friend and i was thinking of something like your “A kit with a cause” mini book. You used to have it posted on your gallery, but not anymore. I know it’s probably somewhere in your archives, but I don’t know which month/year it was posted : /

    Thanks so much for this….I love the camera strap, mine is so little an uncomfortable that this one looks comfy enough to be worn all day long! :)
    Also-I have NEVER thought of using a book/journal to document my thoughts or things going on to refer to back later…(imagine that?! LOL!)

    Hi! Merry Christmas!!!
    If you ever write in a moleskine you will never want any other journal. They are awesome!! I love the little sketch books. I use them for Art Journals. The pages are great!!

    I got the Moleskin grid flip top book last year at Borders for myself – it is an awesome sketch book! I especially love the grid because I hate it when my sketches are wonky :-) Great ideas Ali!
