Tips and Suggestions

When I was signing up to be a demonstrator, I got stuck. I needed some time and stopped in the middle. Then I couldn’t get back to add to it and it wouldn’t let me start again. I needed to call the wonderful Demonstrator Support people at Stampin’ Up! I didn’t know these details.

  • You can choose any products. You do not need to use the list from Stampin’ Up! or any of the lists below.
  • Your starter kit must be close to, but not over $125 in products for just $99 and Stampin’ Up! pays the shipping. You probably won’t get everything on your wish list in that first order. But you will get a Demonstrator ID number right away. Then you can order the rest of your list as a demonstrator order.
  • Once your starter kit order is started you should complete it. You can’t go back and start over on the website since their system already has your first order and you don’t yet have your demonstrator number to get back to it. If you get stuck like I did, just call the wonderful and helpful people at Demonstrator Support, (800) 782-6787. They can help you go back to finish your order.
  • Demonstrator ID numbers are now given right away. Once you have that, you can order all you want, saving 20% for as long as you stay active. And there are advancements and other benefits. One gives you 25% discount. Yay!!!
  • To stay active, you need to buy (or sell) $300 per quarter (in the US). If you don’t do that, you will be dropped. But nothing stops you from joining again. The only negative consequence is that you will lose any advancements you may have achieved.

Here are some Starter Kit suggestions.

If you have been stamping for a while. I’m sure you already have your list. Get whatever you want. Just remember it can’t go over $125. Save the rest of your list for your next order. And did I mention you pay just $99 for all these products?

But perhaps you are a new stamper and you need some suggestions. Most of these bundles assume you have no stamping supplies except scissors and adhesive. Each list would be great for a beginner stamper or a new demonstrator.

Above the Clouds Kit

Stampin’ Up! suggested this list and even has your first class planned using these supplies!

Start with a Beginner Suite and add a few extras.

The sets in the Beginner Brochure come with directions and everything you need to make some beautiful projects. On page 15 of the brochure are some additional products. I’ve put these started kits together with those items and maybe one or two extras.

Hoot Hoot Hooray Kit

Celebrate with Cake Kit

Magnolia Lane Cards Kit

Delightful Day Kit

Or start with a Suite and add a few extras.

Woven Threads Kit

Noble Peacock Kit

Follow Your Art Kit

Pressed Petals Kit

I think you might see where I’m going with this. There are more suites and bundles. Let me know if I can help you find products to add to your kit.

Magnolia Lane Kit

But what about the big Magnolia Lane Suite in the annual catalog? That is more than $125. If you can do without the Cork Embellishments until you can put in your first order as a demonstrator, you can get everything else in that suite!

Or maybe you need the basics

Basic Tools Bundle

Stampin’ Write Markers

Stampin’ Blends

Select the Ivory, Bronze, and a Color Lifter, and 12 Stampin’ Blends Combos. There are 36 Combos to choose from. Sorry, you’ll have to wait to get the other 24 Combos.

Color Families





In Colors

Note: The 2019-2021 In Color Classic Stampin’ Pads®, #150087 Price $33.75  were not available when I generated this list. When they are available, you can order them in this kit as well. Otherwise substitute with the same value products.

Basics Black, White, and Very Vanilla


But remember, you can put your kit together with any products you want as long as the total is $125 or less. Click here when you have your list and join my SIP Together Team.

    Hi Bev,

    Here I am. As I said on the message I left you, I’ve talked with my demonstrator and explained why I wanted to change over to you. Of course, she tried to persuade me to stay with her but in the end it was my choice. So, I just read through this page on filling out the supply list and will get busy with finishing that today. I do think the suggested bundles are great but wonder now if I have to stay with the general pattern of ordering only one set of stamps or, since I have quite a bit of the general supplies, could I order the Sea of Textures Bundle, the Lilypad Lake Bundle, and the Enjoy Life stamp set, plus the Tranquil Textures DSP? Just added these together; it’s exactly $125; WOW! My next question would then be, what is the minimum order amount after this for demonstrators? And, if as a demonstrator I buy a 10% discounted bundle, would I still receive another 20% off?
    Anyhow, I just wanted to reiterate that sometimes my crafting time is pretty limited, but if that is OK, I’d be glad to join under you, because even if I would have to go back to “just” being a customer, I’d be with one of the most talented demonstrator I’ve come across in the internnet.
    Looking forward to talking with you,

      First of all, you can order anything you want as long as it’s at least $125 and not too much over. So your choice of Sea of Textures Bundle, the Lilypad Lake Bundle, and the Enjoy Life stamp set, and the Tranquil Textures DSP is perfect!

      I am very honored that you selected me, but again, I’m sure your other demonstrator would be overjoyed as well.

      As for once you are a demonstrator, yes, you will still get the 10% discount off bundles plus the 20% off as a demonstrator. Your only obligation to continue as a demonstrator is to order a minimum $300 per quarter. For some that’s easy to do just buying for yourself.

      Thank you for your very kind words. I enjoy creating with Stampin’ Up! I think the products make creativity easy and I love sharing what I do. I look forward to talking with you too.
