I cant make up my mind


The  whole set up, well, it doesn't show my markers,
 the 4 families and retired colors are in clear cases off  the right.


The newest In Colors are above.


4 families Blends.... for now maybe.



 I bought an ink holder from Stampin Storage 
I use the Stampin Up Storage for the In Color collection. 
But I've been thinking....


That I should arrange all my inks this way.
I really should flip a coin to decide. 

If the Stampin Up Storage interests you, go check it out

My top 23 topics of Stampin' Up!

Join or Host a workshop/class

Benefits of joining stamping up as a demonstrator, you get sneak peeks at products that are coming before customers do you also have the opportunity to pre order products before customers do and of course the 20% - 25% discount, and you can earn incentive trips,

Work at your own schedule. Some demonstrators never have a class or party, they are their only customer. Some have a Class or workshop every week. Some do it just to support their habit others support their families.

If your wish list is huge you may want to think about signing up as. Demonstrator to save some money

Join My Team

Workshop:  A workshop is a home party. You invite your friends over and I come demonstrate what Stampin’ Up! is about and share our crafty products by  demonstrating two or three projects.   One of these projects is “a make 'n take” and everyone has the opportunity to participate and create the project to take home.  The hostess has the opportunity to earn free product (hostess benefits) based upon sales from the event.

Class:  A class is typically a finished project based get together - although some of my classes are opportunities to delve into various techniques.  I provide directions, tips and all of the supplies needed as I walk you through completing the projects specifically designed for the class. Classes usually run about 2-3 hours.  Participants pay a flat fee.

Club:  This is an additional event format I offer and is a blend of the first two.  A club is a recurring paid class with a hostess!  In my clubs the participants are committed to attending and ordering on a regular basis.  This regular participation earns them the opportunity to join the hostess rotation.  While you have to earn the opportunity to join the hostess rotation, guests are welcome at my current technique club meetings where space is available and pay the same class fee as the club members.

 

Basic Tool Kit

There are several to choose from, but the Dandy Garden Suite Collection has me craving Summer. It includes 2 bundles! One has a punch to match the stamps the 2nd has dies.

A must-have tool for all stampers, the Stamparatus helps you perfectly align stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and precisely, and you can re-ink an image for complete ink coverage.

Adhesives

There's quite the variety of adhesives.

Adhesive sheets are great for making your die cuts into stickers without using glue or getting adhesive over the edges

The fine tip glue pen is also great for using on intricate die cuts.

The multi purpose liquid glue is my favorite!

Mini glue dots are also great for everything.

The Tear & Tape is very permanent, once its stock it stuck, same with the Stampin' Seal+ .

The Stampin Seal and Stampin Seal+ take a bit of a learning curve to use but they are great adhesives especially on 3-D items the silicon craft sheet is a must have when using the seal tapes.

Many more, it really is personal choice on which is best.

Acrylic Blocks

Available in 9 sizes I

t's always best to use a block that fits your stamp well, if it's to small your stamp will hang over the edges and you won't get a crisp image and if your block is too big you can rock which causes ink blotches were you don't want them.

There is also block caddy available, or you could buy the block bundle and save 10%

Take your pick tool

The take your pick tool has multiple ends that interchange when is a poking tool which is great for pulling the backs off your dimensional . There's a tacky end that helps to pick up sequins and little things also a stylus and a Mini spatula
