I'm so excited (and a bit nervous) about this video that I'm sharing today as I go over the very basic supplies for stamping needed to get you started as a stamper. This video is for someone just getting into stamping and paper crafts. You see, I really do LOVE stamping and paper crafts so I want to share my passion with others and help the beginner or new crafter get started with the basic supplies to jump in to this fun activity. This video is dedicated to my niece, Kamryn! She was the one that asked for this video as a fairly new stamper… Actually, she asked for a series of videos to help the new stamper get started so, yes, there are more videos in the works to help you with the basic supplies for stamping.
A little back history… I've been scrapbooking and crafting with my nieces almost from the day they were born. My earliest scrapbooks are all about my nieces, Kerrigan and Kamryn. Whenever I would visit them we would try to visit a local scrapbooking store and craft together. I've actually been working on this idea for a "New Stamper" series and plan to add more over time but this first "New Stamper" video was inspired by my youngest niece. She has really been enjoying the Paper Pumpkin Subscription from Stampin' Up! and also enjoying my videos. But, she has never really done a lot of stamping on her own without me being present and since we live about 800 miles apart I just can't go stamp with her whenever. Kamryn is 14 and really does enjoy crafts.

In the video, I share the basic supplies needed to help a new stamper and paper crafter get started. I also talk a bit about Sale-A-Bration which is an opportunity to receive FREE Stampin' Up! products when you purchase $50.00 before Tax & Shipping, you can then choose a free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.
