Illustrator

Inkscape
A free, open source vector image editing program that allows you to create digital illustrations that do not blur when resized (unlike jpgs). Free download.

Silhouette Cameo Machine

A digital die-cutting machine. Basically a like a printer, it sits on your desktop but rather than printing documents output from your computer, you load material into the machine which is then cut into the shapes you have specified. 

Sizzix

A manual, hand operated die-cutting and embossing machine. It can only cut based on the dies (metal shapes with sharp edges) you insert into the machine. It can also emboss paper, based on plastic embossing folders inserted into it.
