It seemed ideal for the novice stamper, a great learning tool, so when we were lucky enough to get to get our hands on one, I have to say at first I was a little disappointed.
I had hoped that it would be something you could give as a gift to someone with no craft experience, but who could follow basic instructions. To start with, no basic instructions and then the sentiments aren't something that a first time stamper may want, whatever happened to a Happy Birthday?.
I have a few customers who have purchased the kit, all are relatively new with limited supplies, so my initial plan was to make up a set of the cards using only the supplies in the kit to give them a few ideas and options.
But the more I looked at it and thought, the more options I could see to incorporate their limited supplies and come up with many more designs, actually we are having a class doing just that. That will be in a future blog. So again, I have had a complete change of heart because even though I still believe it's not 100% suitable to just give a first timer as a gift, there's more than enough there to whet the appetite of new stampers.
I really hope that this is the start of things to come here in Australia.
