Get started during Sale-a-Bration

Sale-A-Bration is a great time to get your friends into stamping, because they get so much more for their money! These cards are just the sort of thing you can make with a “starter pack” of Stampin’ Up!® products.

Here’s the shopping list:

Product name
Assorted A4 cardstock: Brights (20 sheets)
A4 cardstock: Whisper White (40 sheets)
Designer Series Paper Patterns Stack: Brights (12 sheets 12”x12”)
Old Olive ink pad
Rich Razzleberry ink pad
Tombow multi-purpose adhesive
Mini silver brads
Sprinkled Expressions stamp set (wood)

This kit includes a versatile stamp set, featuring words and images, as well as a a pack of Whisper White cardstock, which seriously is the BEST cardstock to stamp on and you get 40 sheets which will keep you going for a very long time. There’s a selection of brightly coloured cardstock and a whopping pack of patterned paper in exactly the same colours! Choose two stamp sets from the same colour collection and you can co-ordinate perfectly. The Tombow adhesive is strong and versatile and ideal for beginners because it provide a bit of “wiggle room” before it sets. Finally, you can get the free set without the Mini brads but I do love these at the moment, so couldn’t resist adding them to the package!

If you’d like your friends to get into stamping (and why not? You’ll have more people to borrow stamps from!), why not “Like” this post and it will post to your Facebook wall so they can see. Go on – it took me AGES to get the “Like” button to appear and I don’t think anyone’s used it yet! I do believe you have to view the post on its own to make it work, which is probably why it’s not happened – to do that, click the title of the post and it should appear.

And don’t forget to let me know if you or your friends would like to place an order and earn some fabulous free products!
