What would I choose for the Stampin' Up! Starter Kit?

The Stampin' Up!® joining offer is always fantastic value and it's even better during Sale-a-Bration.

You pay $169! And you can choose anything from any of the current catalogues.

Here's an idea of what I would choose as a beginner stamper.

A set of the newest In Color Ink Pads (#114081) $47.50

 Add the matching cardstock pack (#144253)  $14.00 and you have a great colour range to start you off.
Some of our Whisper White card stock is a must - it's beautifully smooth and a dream to stamp on.
Whisper White A4 (#106549) for $15.75.

 And then some Memento Black ink (#132708) for crisp images. It's just $10.
Our glue runner or 'snail' (#104332) as we call it is a fast and easy way to adhere layers of cardstock.  It's refillable and costs just $10. 
 Blender Pens (#102845) are a wonder for water colouring and can pick up the ink from any ink pad.  $21
And we all love our Stampin' Trimmer (#129722) for precision cutting and scoring.  It sells for $50.

That's $169 worth of product!  But for your $169 you get to choose $66 more so that your total of product reaches $235.

I would add Mini Glue Dots (#103683) for $8.
A pack of Whisper White Envelopes (#106588) for $11.50.

Every stamper's essential tool - a Bone Folder (#102300) for $12.

A pack of Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) for $6. 

Paper Snips (#103579) for $17 - super sharp and perfect for fussy cutting.

And to embellish, some Linen Thread (#104199) for $8.00.

All of these items come in under $235 AND I get free shipping!

But wait, there's more!  During Sale-a-Bration I can also choose two stamp sets....for FREE!

I would go for the Letters for You stamp set (#141968) valued at $85 (but FREE for you!).  It's great for all sorts of occasions and to personalise cards and envelopes.

And the wonderful Petal Palette stamp set (#145788) which is worth $61.

Both of these stamp sets have matching framelits which I could add to my next order and receive 20% off!

All up my order contains goodies totalling $376! and I have paid $169.

Don't forget that you can choose ANYTHING you like for you starter kit and free stamp sets.  The offer is fully customisable.

The joining offer runs all year but the two extra stamp sets are only during Sale-a-Bration which runs till the end of March.  If you are interested in joining, you can jump online and join my team by clicking this link or copying and pasting it into your browser.

Below are some FAQs from a previous blog post!

Does joining sound scary?  I assure you it's not.  Here's some FAQs.

Q:  What do I get in my Starter Kit?
A:  Anything you want - make up a list of products you would like up to $235 from the NEW catalogue.  You pay $169.  A great way to get a HUGE discount!  During Sale-a-Bration you also choose two extra stamp sets (go for some biggies!) for FREE!  If you 
just want to order the starter kit, that’s fine.  Stop there if you want.

Q:  What happens after that?
A:  A brown box of fun stuff will arrive at your door about a week later.  And then you start playing.  Yippee!!

Q:  Do I have to sell a lot of products?
A:  Nope.  It’s up to you.  Many people sign up as Hobby Demonstrators - i.e. for the discount.  That's why I signed up originally.  You can purchase for yourself  or sell to friends and family.  As little or as much as you like.  If you want to try to sell more widely that's up to you.  You can try running classes or parties if you want. I will help you with this if you like.

Q:  What happens if I don't sell anything?
A:  Nothing:  there are no penalties for stopping or dropping.  If you were to sign up during Sale-a-Bration, you would have till the end of July to enjoy a 20% discount on any products.  If you buy/sell enough, you will then be an active demonstrator for the 
next quarter.  If you don't purchase or sell anything more, that's fine.  It really is up to you!

Q:  Why join?
A:  Cardmaking and scrapbooking are two of the best hobbies in the world!  By signing up to Stampin' Up! you become part of generous welcoming family of like minded people.  You are also welcome to be part of my team activities.  For me, it's my job and I have made so many friends and had so many wonderful experiences! I would love you to join my team!
