What is a Starter Kit? What is in the Starter Kit? How much does it cost?
1. A Starter Kit costs $99. FREE shipping this time. You will also pay local tax for your area.
~During Sale-a-bration every January-March you get to choose something extra. In 2018 you get to choose TWO Stamp sets in addition to your Starter Kit items-any stamp set, any price!! (Excludes Bundles and Sale-a-bration items)
2. A Starter Kit contains the Business supplies and Stamping supplies to help you get YOUR Business off to a great start so you can start holding events right away! You have THREE choices when it comes to Business Supplies. Here is a copy of the Independent Demonstrators Agreement which contains the information on Starter Kit Supplies and other things you will need to agree to when you join Stampin’ Up!
The Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit allows you to choose up to $125 in merchandise. You can choose whatever you want! I do have a few suggestions to help you if you do not have many Stampin’ Up! Supplies. Otherwise, remember to order the supplies you can use for your events. Order only current supplies so you can sell them. I would avoid Clearance Rack items as they are no longer current. Spend your Business Dollars well so those you share with can easily order the supplies to duplicate the projects you show them.
HERE is Stampin’ Up!’s Suggested Starter Kit
STARTER KIT OPTION 1
Some Suggested Basic Supplies to get YOU Started if you don’t have many Stampin’ Up! Products.

Suggestions for the rest of your allowed amount:
~Order Clear Mount Blocks to go with any Clear Mount or Photopolymer stamps you order. These are sold separate from the stamp sets. If you order Wood Mount stamps the Wood Blocks are included in the stamp set price.
~Stamps. Choose a stamp set you like that is equal or less than the amount you have left. (You can choose a Bundle that includes a Stamp Set and a punch). Choose one that can be used for a variety of Occasions. You don’t need to choose a Bundle.
~Ribbons and/or embellishments
~$30.00 Paper Trimmer
STARTER KIT OPTION 2 – IN COLORS

Total so far: $83 means $42 left to spend. A Bundle which includes a punch will be about the right amount.
~All In Color products including card stock, embellishments, Papers, Lace, Ink Refills.
~Stamps I would suggest stamps that have a variety of sentiments and some images so you can make a variety of projects with it. Wood Mount stamps are easier to use for Workshops and Classes as they come with their own block. You will also need Clear Blocks if you get Clear Mount or Photopolymer Stamps. Most stamp sets include suggested Blocks.
