Beginners Stampin’ Kit

What items would be in my Beginners Stampin’ Kit?


I have had mostly new Stampers joining in my classes, since starting classes here in Mount Isa.

People often ask me what items that they need or should order first? There is no rules to this – just like stamping but these would be my suggestions on where to start.

This got me to thinking – What would I recommend as a basic starting Stampin’ Kit?

My Top Items would be:

1. Paper Snips (103579) $17 AUD
2. Bone Folder (102300) $12 AUD
3. Stampin’ Trimmer (129722) $50 AUD
4. Snail Adhesive (104332) $10 AUD
5. Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430) $6 AUD
6. Stampin’ Scrub (126200) $30 AUD
7. Stampin’ Mist Stamp Cleaner (102394) $8 AUD
8. Note Cards and Envelopes – Whisper White (131527) $10.50 AUD
9. A Set of Stampin’ Write Markers (Various) Abt $51 AUD
10. A Stamp Set of your Choice

With this basic kit you should be on your way to unleashing your creativity. There would be no waiting for Mary three seats down who is hogging the scissors or the Snail.

At the moment if you were to buy this kit you would get at least TWO Free items from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue – That might be another stamp set or some cool paper or embellishments to add to your cards.

You can order these Items by contacting me direct or order online

Sale A Bration Class in Mount Isa, Queensland

Our first class for 2017 launched the Sale A Bration and Occasions Catalogues.

Class for 2017 Started with a bang! Watercolor Pencils, Framelits and Color Combos

We made the following projects:

The first card highlights the new water color pencils as well as the Inside the Lines Designer series paper (which you can get for free during Sale a bration). Who doesn’t love to color, each of the girls colored different things on this card. Get in QUICK the Watercolor pencils are selling FAST! I would hate for you to miss out.

I discussed ways to find inspiration – talked about where to go on the web. A color challenge which is where the inspiration for this card came from. You can easily google Stampin’ Up! Color Challenge and a heap of ideas will pop up. Try something new and get some new color combinations into your projects and cards.

At each class I try and teach a new skill or technique. We learnt about Framelits when cutting out the balloons for this card. Be Sure to check out a blog post coming to you soon. It will explain what Framelits are and how awesome they are.
