The Getting Started Challenge!

Yesterday I mentioned that at my downline Stamp & Share last week we talked about the Getting Started Collection.
Did you even know we had a Getting Started Collection...or what the Getting Started Collection is?  Let me enlighten you!  The Getting Started Collection is a group of colors that Stampin' Up! has put together by pulling colors from all the other color collections.  This special group of colors go great together and work well for many different occasions.  For the new stamper, the Getting Started Collection is the perfect and easy way to get strated (hence the name...Stampin' Up! is good like that!!).  You can order Getting Started packs of cardstock, a set of Stampin' Spots in those colors and even some of the new Stitched Grosgrain ribbon comes in the Getting Started Collection.  I think the Getting Started Collection is fantastic for all stampers!

We focused on beginning stampers at our Stamp & Share night and put together a little bundle of products that is perfect if you're just getting started.  I included the getting started colors as well as the Easy Event stamp set beucase it's a perfect set for all occasions and includes an assortment of images and words.

With this in mind, I challenged my downline in attendance to create a notecard with the limited supplies I had out on the table (the Getting Started Collection ink and cardstock, Easy Events, 3 colors of stitched ribbon, Brights Buttons, a couple Big Shot dies and Embossing Folders).  Here's what they came up with....

Here's where you come in!  I've numbered the samples (top right hand corner of each one) and I need you to vote for your favorite.  I love them all and am so excited with how different they all look!!!  To vote all you need to do is leave a comment on this post with the number of the one you like best.  For your vote to count, you MUST include your name.  You can only vote once and voting will be open until 11:59pm on July 4, 2012.  I will announce the winner on July 5 and the winner will receive a package of Polka Dot Parade DSP at our next Stamp & Share night!

Have an inspired day!
