Have you tried any of the Stampin’ Up! Kits? They are so much fun to put together. All the work is done for you so you can skip to the fun! The products and papers are selected to coordinate, and everything is pre-cut and measured saving you time and money. You can make one card as you need it or make 20 cards in one crafting session. Kits have lots of advantages.
New stampers: Purchase a kit and you are all set to make lots of wonderful cards using stamps, die-cut and different types of embellishments. And, it is an economical way to add to your crafting supplies and you can reuse coordinating products on new projects.
Busy People with limited time to craft: Kits are a big time saver – no sorting or fussing. You will have everything you need to complete a bunch of cards in a short amount of time – either using the suggested designs or creating your own designs by mixing and matching the kit pieces. And, your kit is easily portable – pack in a bag or your luggage, and you can craft anywhere. While on a business trip in December, I took a kit and enjoyed crafting in my hotel room. It was a real treat after a long work day, especially since I was away from my family!
Gift Giving: Everyone enjoys being creative – college students, teachers, grandparents or someone with limited space to craft. Last year, I purchase Watercolor Wishes card kits for myself and several girlfriends. We had a wonderful time putting them together and coming up with alternative ideas!
Rainy Day craft project: They’re easy and fun, and there is no need to run to the craft store. These are great to have on a hand for a visit with the grandkids, a quick girl scout project, or maybe your Bible Study group – a little fellowship and you now have a card ministry! Plus you can mix and match the kit pieces to create new and different designs and projects.
There are three types of kits:
All-Inclusive kits have everything you need – fabulous sentiment stamp set, coordinating papers and embellishments, card bases with matching envelopes and adhesives.
Project kits require purchase of additional supplies listed in the kit description (i.e. ink pads, adhesives, stamp set). Project kits let you take advantage of craft supplies you may already own, and give you option of ordering refills. Some project kits make cards, some make gift packaging, while others make home decor items.
Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription project kit that arrives at your door each month with stamps, ink, and paper—everything you need for a fun crafting project. Sometimes the kit includes cards, gift bags, banners, treat bags, or boxes. Other times, it’s home décor or seasonal crafts.
Lets kit together soon! I have enjoyed crafting with all three types of kits and I know you will too. Until next time, happy crafting!
