Card Making for Beginners

How I Use Stampin’ Up! Products
I use my products to make cards, decorate and add embellishments to my scrapbook pages, and decorate my planner pages and journals. Now, I know you probably paused when you read the word “cards” and then thought to yourself, “who sends cards in the mail anymore?” Instead of asking that question, ask yourself this: wouldn’t it be a great surprise for my best friend (or mom, dad, niece, grandson, etc.) to and a handmade card with a heartfelt sentiment made specifically for him/her? When I send my cards, or “happy mail” as it is often dubbed, my friends and family are not only surprised, but they are also appreciative because they recognize the time and effort I devoted to creating and mailing the card. Sending handmade cards shows people how much you care for them and that you’re thinking of them when they don’t even know it.

The Beginner Brochure

Another great way to get started is through coordinated products -- the ink, paper, and accessories -- to make creating projects super easy. Take a look at the Beginner Brochure and review several coordinated collections.

The Kits Collection - A Great Way to Create with Friends

The Kits Collection are created especially for beginners.  They're also a way to hold your own crafting parties with friends.  Visit the Kits Collection page and choose from a variety of affordably priced, versatile kits for multiple occasions.  You can have a party with friends to create with the same kit or each guest can create with the kit of their choice.  This is a great way to introduce new (and slightly nervous) papercrafters to be in control and choose the kit experience that is most comfortable for them.

Each kit will provide step-by-ste[ instructions, giving you and your friends an expertly choreographed experience that encourages success and builds creative confidence. Kits are all-inclusive, precut, and ready to use; plus, new kits will be added regularly so be sure to check back often!
