The Beginner's Bundle

My favorite stamping & paper crafting supplies!

Many people often wonder what supplies they need to get started with paper crafting. I’ve created the Beginner’s Bundle as an example of what I think are some basics that are useful to help get you started. If you purchase the Beginner’s Bundle you save 10%, or you can just use it for some ideas of what to buy to start off. The Beginner’s Bundle makes a great gift too if you know someone who paper crafts or who wants to start paper crafting.

The Beginner’s Bundle includes:
Paper Cutter
(p. 184) - Portable & lightweight, cuts paper up to 12”, features easy-to-read grid lines, measures up to 15-1/2”, & comes with 2 cutting blades.
2-Way Glue Pen (p. 186) - This adhesive is temporary when allowed to dry before adhering or permanent when adhered promptly. It is also acid free.
Whisper White Card Stock (p. 166) – 40 sheets, 8-1/2” x 11” size, acid free.
Assorted Card Stock (p. 164-165) – 36 sheets, 8-1/2” x 11” size, 3 each of 12 colors, your choice of color family: Bold Brights, Earth Elements, Rich Regals, or Soft Subtles.
Basic Black Classic Stampin’ Pad (p. 163) – Full-size ink pad, also waterproof.
Assorted Classic Stampin’ Spots (p. 164-165) – Set of 12 small ink pads, your choice of color family: Bold Brights, Earth Elements, Rich Regals, or Soft Subtles.

The cost of the Beginner’s Bundle is $70
(includes tax)
I accept cash, check, PayPal, or credit card
(If ordering through the Internet, PayPal or credit card only)
I will also ship the kit for $5 extra (U.S. only, PayPal or credit card only)

Other Supplies I Can’t Live Without

Just if you’re interested in expanding your own supplies, I’ve listed below some of the things that are necessities for me & use all of the time:

Stampin’ Scrub (p. 184) – Has two scrubbing pads-one side you spray with Stampin’ Mist cleaner & rub the stamp on to clean & the other side you rub the stamp on to dry it.
Stampin’ Mist (p. 184) – Cleans & conditions rubber stamps, preserves the life of the rubber, comes in a convenient spray bottle.
VersaMark Pad (p. 183) – Creates a tone-on-tone or watermark effect, also used for applying embossing powder.
Craft & Rubber Scissors (p. 184) – Especially made for trimming rubber before mounting stamps. I won’t cut rubber with anything else now!
Stampin’ Dimensionals (p. 186) – 300 in the package, these are thick double-sided, adhesive foam dots, perfect for adding a 3-D effect.
Crop-A-Dile (p. 189) – This is an amazing tool! It punches through chipboard, tin & multiple layers of paper so easily! It also sets eyelets silently & easily in 2 sizes.
Mat Pack (p. 189) – Includes the paper-piercing pad, paper-piercing template, & setting mat, each 4” x 4”. It’s how I get those perfectly spaced pierced holes & helps to evenly space brads.
