My Stampin Up Starter Kit arrived!

My lovely Starter Kit arrived on Tuesday, I just had to capture the moment, so here are some pictures...

I swapped some of the recommended stamp sets for ones that I thought would be more useful for me, and also choose some different coloured ink pads.  The kit is fantastic value for money even if you wanted to save money on some crafty goodies.  Click here for more info on how to get it.

Initial thoughts about some of the products.

My first reaction to the Very Vanilla card stock was that it is to light weight for making a card base.  After a discussion with my fab upline Claire, she explained that the Very Vanilla and Whisper White card was for stamping on and then sticking onto the coloured card. I have to admit the stamped images on that card looks superb.  Apparently if you like to colour with Copics the colours do not bleed as they sometimes do with other card. 

Here is one of the card's we'll be making at classes this month

Waiting and sorting...

Well, it's been a busy few days in my head and home!

I've been thinking of what my approach and ethos to selling Stampin Up products will be and how I will share my passion of crafting with others.  Had a few late nights thinking and sorting through craft things I don't use, and trying to be strict with myself. More listings have gone up on ebay, and been showing piles of papers to anyone interested in buying.

Made this card the other day, it's a special commission for someone so I can't say more than that!

Look what happened

when some friends came round!  We had a bit of a crafty session and I practised my demo skills on them!
Used some of the lush seam binding ribbon from Stampin Up.

Exciting times...

There has been lots of sorting and parting with craft items I simply don't use any more, lots of things being listed on ebay.  It's all in a bid to make some space and clear my head for...

Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!

I have just sent off my application form, after days, no weeks, actually months of thinking about it.

After using some of their products and drooling over their catalogue I genuinely think that they make high quality products that appeal to all sorts of tastes in paper crafting.  

Please watch this space as I start this new adventure .  I endeavour to be very honest about the process, and how I balance family life with running a business.
