Welcome to a very belated Part 2 of the Sunday “Did You Know” series. Some weeks are a challenge during this COVID-19 world in which we now live. I’d like to introduce you to an often overlooked resource offered by Stampin’ Up! – the Beginner Brochure! Click here to check it out!

Learning a New Craft

Whenever we choose a new hobby or craft there is so much to learn. Whether your craft is woodworking, pottery, or card making, the learning curve can be daunting. Terminology is unfamiliar; materials can be intimidating.

Stampin' Up! Beginner Brochure CoverGetting into paper crafting can be overwhelming—and expensive—at times, and you might not know where to start. That’s why Stampin’ Up! created a Beginner Brochure for people who are new to crafting. The Beginner Brochure features high-quality products with an emphasis on coordination, versatility, coloring, easy to accomplish techniques, and card kits that make it easy to get started. These are combined in a way that tells a story about card marking and creates a clear path for new crafters to follow. It simplifies deciding where to start and where to go from there. The Beginner Brochure will help you see how easy and inexpensive it is to be creative and part of something amazing.

I teach the skills. You set the pace.

My almost seven years as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator have blessed me with many great memories of crafting alongside others. My favorite memory occurred during a class. One class member coaxed a friend to join us. She was reluctant because she believed she was not creative and thought she might be embarrassed. At the end of the class, when she held up her completed card, she looked at me with a HUGE smile on her face and said, “I did it!” The look on her face was one I will never forget.

Having a Beginner Brochure is a wonderful way to test the card making waters and see if it’s for you. We start with basics and move beyond.  Let me be your guide and the Beginner Brochure be your map to the exciting world of card making!! You’ll have exciting adventures with entertaining companions that just may become some of your best friends! My crafty friends have encouraged me, taught me and challenged me, and I’m blessed to do life with them.

Continued prayers for health and comfort during these uncertain times. Send someone a card or letter and let them know you’re thinking of them even if you can’t get together in person. I have received several of those cards and they have so brightened my day. I hope that the people who have received the ones I’ve mailed have felt the same way.
