#1 Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles – Hello Dear Friend – Great Kit for Beginners
Are you a fan of kits? Do you buy them for yourself, or perhaps give them as gifts?
I often buy them, but forget to remember I have them, so this month, I decided to change that.
You’ll perhaps have noticed that I’ve mentioned my eldest son Jack a few times over this month, well in recent months, he’s been helping me out a bit more in my office.
As a final year 6th form student, he is home schooling right now, but he also has free periods of time too. So he has been helping out with various aspects of what I do in my office – putting your thank you packs together, suggesting colour collections, even some stamping!
It’s nice to have some company in the office, yes, the whole family are at home right now, but even with the hustle and bustle of them around the house, it’s nice to have someone to chatter to while I work.
So with Jack’s assistance readily available, I handed him the box that this kit is sent in and asked him to put together 1 of each card.
He was a little concerned at first glance, and then asked for inks, supplies, blocks, glues etc, but I told him every single thing he needed was in the box.
Marginally sceptical, he took it to his bedroom and just 20 minutes later, he was downstairs having completed all 4!
And although he does help in the office, he’s never done anything like this before and I felt it a good challenge to see how he got on.
His only comment was that he had trouble with the bows…. I guess that he takes after me with that too.
So, on his recommendation, he feels this is a great kit for a new crafter, someone who perhaps fancies a new hobby or just wants to see a little of what we’re about.
Great job Jack!
