My Favorites Starter Kit Picks!!!

Posted on

Tuesday, I shared my Beginner Starter Kit Picks and today I’m sharing my Favorites Starter Kit Picks. These are the items that I’m loving right now! If you have been stamping for a few months or even years or maybe decades and have decided to jump in and start enjoying that discount on products you love, remember you can customize your Starter Kit to anything you want. Here are my picks!

My Favorites Starter Kit Pick for Sale-A-Bration 2021, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Bundles are always a great deal because they are 10% off the individual price of the items. I’m all about getting the best deal and stacking the offers. I picked my 2 favorite bundles for this kit which I’m sure you aren’t surprised by! If you have followed me for even a hot minute, you know how much I LOVE FLOWERS!!! The Hydrangea Haven Bundle is so pretty and fabulous! Then there is the Many Messages Bundle which I have found to be so quick and simple to use and get lots of great greetings for any occasion! It’s amazing!

After those bundles, I needed a few filler items to round out my $125 in picks so I went with the Blended Brushes which are super fun and perfect for coloring the Hydrangea. Stampin’ Dimensionals because I just love those things and can’t get enough of them! Finally, I picked an embellishment to round it out! Technically I went with the Pastel Pearls which coordinate with the Hydrangea Bundle but mine haven’t arrived just yet so I popped in some Champagne Rhinestone for the photo! 🙂

These products total $124.75 which is just $0.25 under the $125 max amount you get in your kit! All of this for just $99 plus tax. Shipping is FREE!!! BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE! Now during Sale-A-Bration which ends on February 28th, you will also receive 5 packs of double-sided Designer Series Paper – Brights, Regals, Subtles, Neutrals, and In-Colors! That’s A LOT OF PAPER! Remember you can pick anything you want, these are just my favorites starter kit picks!

My Beginner Starter Kit Picks!!!

Posted on

Stampin’ Up offers an amazing deal with their Starter Kit all year long but during Sale-A-Bration it is even sweeter! Whether you are just getting started and want the best offer or you have been stamping for years and have decided that the discount would be amazing!!! I have my Starter Kit picks here in both categories so you can see my favorites and possibly an option for you if you have been thinking about it! Today, I’m sharing my Beginner Starter Kit picks. Thursday, I’ll share my favorites for someone who has been stamping awhile!

My Starter Kit Picks for A Beginner Stamper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For someone just getting started with stamping, I always recommend Stampin’ Up’s All Inclusive Card Kits! These kits are amazing because they come with everything that you need to get started including ink, stamps, clear block, and adhesive. It’s the perfect way to get your feet wet and not feel overwhelmed. This is why I picked the Hello Dear Friend All Inclusive Card Kit (upper left corner)!!!

To go along with that kit, I chose the Melon Mambo and Old Olive Ink Pads because the stamps in the kit include a flower and stem. These colors are also used in the kit so any leftover pieces can coordinate well with these colors to create even more cards with the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes! (Misty Moonlight is the ink spot in the all inclusive kit!)

The other items I picked for a beginner come from the Zany Zebra Card Kit – Zany Zebra Stamp Set, pack of Basic White Cardstock, Clear Block D (always great to have 2 clear blocks), Memento Black Ink, Watercolor Pencils, and Stampin’ Dimensionals (MY FAVORITE)!!! This gives you a little more freedom to stamp and create while not feeling overwhelmed by a million products. Black is always a good basic ink color to have as well!

Finally, I picked the Shammy because after all, you will want to clean your stamps when you are done!

This is a TON of product that totals $121.75 which means you can pick something off the Clearance Rack to round out your $125 for the Starter Kit! All of this for just $99 plus tax. Shipping is FREE!!! BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE! Now during Sale-A-Bration which ends on February 28th, you will also receive 5 packs of double-sided Designer Series Paper – Brights, Regals, Subtles, Neutrals, and In-Colors! That’s A LOT OF PAPER! Remember you can pick anything you want, these are just my beginner starter kit picks!

If you are just getting started and want the best offer our there, this is it! Click on the products below to purchase them individually or add them to your Starter Kit!!! If you have any questions at all, feel free to reach out!!! When you are ready to get started, click here!

Come back Thursday to see my favorite Starter Kit Picks for someone who has some basics and just loves stamping!

Girl's Night Out Fun, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I always have intentions to snap photos during the event of everyone but always forget. Once people start arriving, the real fun begins. Catching up on summer plans and picking out new favorite products is always the chatter! Stamping, enjoying Caramel Illini Bars, and picking out prizes is the activity!!! I had a full crowd for both the morning and evening and before I knew it everyone was gone and no pictures were taken. But sooooo much fun was had and that’s all that matters! If you want to check out the cards that we made, click here for one of them and stayed tuned till Monday for the other!

For all of you out there who aren’t local to attend the party, let me know in the comments what your favorite new products are and what you summer plans are!!!! I would love to hear from you!

The top picks at Girl’s Night Out were the Bird Ballad Suite and Magnolia Lane Suite.

This weekend I’m heading over to see my girls in Paris, IL and I can’t wait to party all over again!! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend too! Happy Stampin’

What Do You Love???

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!! What do you love today?? Is it chocolate? Is it someone in your life? Is it your craft supplies? I’m going to go with the last 2 and I could exchange chocolate for a cupcake! 🙂 Today, I wanted to share what I am loving right now with Stampin’ Up!!!

What Do You Love, www.LaurasStampPad.com

We are right in the middle of Sale-A-Bration and the Occasions Mini Catalog and it’s been fabulous! There is so much amazing product to play with and color combinations I would have never thought to use! There is also fabulous free stuff with every $50 order and additional $25 in Hostess Goodies when your order/party is over $250. The best deal yet though is when you join Stampin’ Up and get $175 in product for just $99! That is an amazing steal! Free shipping on top of that makes it even better! Gather together with some friends and let’s stamp. Then you can use your Hostess goodies towards signing up to make it an even better deal!

Today, I’m sharing what I would pick out for my Starter Kit totaling $175!!! There is also a 2nd option to the kit to add on the Craft Carry Tote Bag for $129 rather than $99! Being the bag lady that I am, I’m going with that option!!! So that’s $175 in any product and the Craft & Carry Tote for just $129!

Orlando Day 2 Recap!!!

Posted on

Today, I’m sharing the Orlando Day 2 Recap!!! There was a lot more stamping, seeing new products, and winning fabulous stuff on this day!!!

Orlando Day 2 Recap, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Oh my goodness was I blown away by some of these stamping projects. Shelli’s watercoloring and layering is so amazing and I can only hope to color like that. I did try to take notes on how she does it. I have lots of practice to do! 🙂 There are lots of great masculine sets coming soon and we all know I struggle with man cards. Flowers, flowers, and more flowers make my heart happy!!!

Fabulous Friends Team, www.LaurasStampPad.com

While there is a lot of stamping going on, there is also a lot of chatting, meeting new people, snapping photos, and so much more! The people make this even more fabulous! I tried taking pictures with those in my Fabulous Friends Team, LovenStampfuls Team, and ImPECKable Stampers Team. Of course, I got pictures with others too! Meeting new people from all over the world is just amazing. The green ears were for all of our team so we could find each other in the sea of 6000 people. The bottom right photo is me and the 6 other ladies in our team that earned the Greek Isles Trip and we got to walk across stage together. It was AMAZING!!!
