  1. High-Quality Paper: A selection of premium papers in various textures, colors, and weights to inspire creativity. I know this can be a difficult task but CutCardStock has you covered. You can buy a variety pack of colors or a gift card.

2.  Paper Cutter or Trimmer: A precision paper cutter or trimmer for clean, straight cuts. There is a lot of variety when it comes to paper trimmers. My favorite paper trimmer comes from Cricut. I like its compact size. I can easily store it on my desk on the side and grab it whenever I need to trim paper.

3. Die Cutting Machine: A die-cutting machine like a Cricut or Silhouette for precise cutting and embossing of paper and other materials. This can be a big dollar item. If you crafter likes technology and can handle a small learning curve, these are great machines. Over the years I have had a variety of different Cricut machines and I have loved each one. Right now I think the best machine for the money would be the Cricut Joy Xtra.


4. Craft Scissors: A set of sharp, precision craft scissors for intricate cutting. Trust me, crafters can never have enough scissors. It is probably the one tool we misplace the most, and the one that gets “borrowed” by family members. (which can irk us!) I love these non-stick scissors and they are real game changers.

5. Gift Cards: Gift cards to their favorite craft supply store. If you are stumped on what to buy, a gift card is always appreciated. If your crafter visits a local craft store often, then that is the place to buy a gift card. Or consider one of the big box stores, we can always find something we “need”.

Will You Shop Target Black Friday Deals?

Will you be shopping black friday? Here are some products that caught my eye in the Target Black Friday ad.

We are a technology family both for work and enjoyment. I can’t say we always have the newest up to date items, nor do we rush out and buy the fresh upgraded products but we do use our technology well.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Slickdeals.
All opinions are my own.

Echo Dot:

On Prime day I ordered five Echo dots for our house. Two are still on backorder until mid-December. Looking through the Target Black Friday ad, they have them for the same price and actually in stock. I am thinking of grabbing the two I need and canceling my order with Amazon.

Some other tech items we are looking into updating are two laptops (a pc and a mac) and possibly a cell phone (iphone). My daughters want iPads for Christmas so I am also following to see what deals might be found for any of these items.


Target has the new Apple iPad 10.2-inch Wi-Fi Only (8th Generation) and it appears to be priced at $100 off retail price. So that seems like a good deal especially since I am seeking to purchase two of them.

iphones are available at Target and there are a few listed in their Black Friday ad. I have an iphone 8 plus and I am not completely sure what version I would upgrade too but I do know I need more storage.

The new Mac Book Pro with the M1 chip is something I am interested in. I wonder if Target will be carrying it as well. The price listed at Apple seem reasonable, the only hold back for me is it is only being offered in a 13″ laptop from what I can see. I would prefer a larger screen if possible.


PowerXL 6qt Indoor Grill and Air Fryer in silver is available on sale as well. A recent video ad peeked my interested although I don’t know a lot about the PowerXL. I have an InstantPot but I have never been that successful in using mine so I am curious if an indoor grill might work better for us. I see that Target has InstantPots on sale again this year as well along with the popular Air Fryers.

One of the most intriguing things I found in the Target Black Friday ad was the RedCard deal. Apply for a RedCard and upon approval, get $40 off on a future qualifying purchase over $40. And we all know that spending over $40 isn’t hard to do at Target! This offer is available 11/1 – 12/26.

So I wonder, “What in the Target Black Friday ad has gained your interest?”
