There are so many ideas, so many products. Where do you start? Here are a few suggestions.
Paper Pumpkin is a program like a book club, but there is no long-term commitment. Each month a kit, “a fully decked creativity carriage”comes to your house for $19.95. You will get a clear block with your first kit. You will also get everything you need except for scissors and adhesive to make cards, 3-D projects, and more. You can stop a kit from coming a month or two and you can stop any time. And now you can pre-pay with no obligation to continue at all!
Stampin’ Up! has been offering a lot of kits lately. They are great because they come with everything you need except scissors and adhesive. The coordination and choices are done. There’s one item number so they’re easy to order. They make a great way to try those first steps.
