Hello Chicky

It’s a pouch, it’s a candy holder, it’s a card… It’s three in one. The chick is what makes this card so very sweet! And the best this is you can get this stamp set free with a $50 order.

Here is the link for the directions



You’ll be ready to grab and go with this tool kit. All the essentials, each held in its own special place. Bring your own adhesive? Ready! No more waiting for the Paper Snips. Traveling? Grab a stamp set and card stock and you’ve got it all.

I made my first Basic Tool kit for my Getting Started Challenge and found that I loved having these tools ready to go. I initially dumped all the tools in the case, but perhaps you’ve seen that I like organization. 🙂  So I added a pocket here and a magnet there. This is what I have now.

Basic Tool Kit Instructions and Placement Guide

Basic Tool Kit Case Insert

In addition to the supplies and tools from Stampin’ Up! you will need an alligator clip (in the electrical department), a paint edger refill pad, and Gorrilla Super Glue Gel from your hardware store.

From an office store you will need small sticky notes and a pen or pencil less than 5″ long.

You will also need an empty hand sanitizer sprayer. Mine is about 1/2″ diameter and 5″ long.

Magnet Source: K & J Magnetics  I bought their 3/8″ x 1/32″ Disc Magnets, D601. You wig story ll need at least 9, but I suggest you buy extra. You may decide you want a firmer hold and you’ll want to use 2 magnets for some tools. These magnets are also fabulous as box or bag closures, etc.

Getting Started Challenge Silver LiningA card for a friend who is going through tough times. The Dazzling Details, sparkly sequins, and silver thread will help bring a little joy.

This card is one of my Getting Started Challenge projects. I’m showing how you can use a few supplies to make many very different projects. Find out more about the project here.
