I can't emphasize to you enough how getting the Starter Kit is going to be THE BEST option for you right now. I want you to get FREE product, FREE postage, DISCOUNTS on all your purchases and SO MUCH MORE!  

Can you tell that I am REALLY passionate about the Starter Kit?  That’s because I really do want to give you the best deal and this is truly the best deal there is.  Do you know that if you purchase the Starter Kit, you have no obligation to sell, you aren't locked into anything.  There is no obligation to do anything further except for enjoy all of your lovely Stampin’ Up products. my opinion, you would KICK yourself later when you realize how much you really missed out on.  This deal is THAT amazing!

A final note: New catalog time can be a little overwhelming - just knowing where to start and what products to get first. The best tip I have is to write them all down on your “Love It”  list and total it all up. If your “Love It” (shopping list) is over $99 - then purchasing the starter kit IS the best option for you, for sure.  You will be getting lots more product for the same amount of money.
