SU's completely customizable Starter Kit -- A Steal of a Deal!

Just to give you an idea of how much stuff you can get in your $99, completely customizable starter kit, here's what I saw when I opened up my starter kit package:

There's 4 ink pads (Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink, Cherry Cobbler, & Perfect Plum), 2 clear stamp sets (Kindness Matters & Make a Cake, 1 individual wood stamp (Quint-essential Flower), the Labels Collection Framelits die set, 2 sets of buttons, Designer Series Paper (Patio Party), a My Digital Studio digital content disc (part of the Make a Cake promo bundle for when I signed up), and training & business materials. Whew, that's a long list!! I'm pretty sure there was also a Snail adhesive in there, too, somewhere, and maybe some regular Whisper White cardstock. What I DO know is that all of this came to a total value of $124 (plus all the promotional free stuff, which was worth at least $50, for a total of $174), but I only paid $99 for my Starter Kit. Talk about a great deal!

Kindness Matters - and so do good friends

A few weeks ago, my old roommate came over and we spent a couple hours stamping together. This was probably my favorite card that came out of that stamp session, made with what is quickly becoming my current favorite stamp set. It  came together pretty quickly -- so quickly, in fact, that I'm using this as my swap card for a demonstrator meeting this week & making about 20 of them!
