Just like a cook with a well stocked kitchen of tools, having the right papercrafting tools can make the difference between an enjoyable and fun experience or one with a few more struggles. I have a Recommended Stamper’s Toolkit, which is the ultimate kit of tools, and listed below is a paired down ‘getting started version’.
The total is $124.25, unless you Join Stampin’ Up! and then it’s $99 with free shipping.
Personally, if I were planning to purchase over $100, I would consider Joining Stampin’ Up! I have a webpage here that talks about all of the benefits of joining, but the main ones are:
- the 20% product discount (thru October or longer if you love it and keep ordering)
- free shipping on your first starter kit order
- early access to new products and catalogs
- ability to increase discount to 25% on-going
Once you Join Stampin’ Up! you can use your discount to pick your stamps, ink and paper and get crafting! The hardest part will be choosing from all of the pretty projects! Browse through the current catalogs for inspiration to get started and then let me know what projects you like and I can help you put together a shopping list. Plus I have a recipe for each project in the catalog that we can consult for your list.
