Welcome! Check out the tutorials and gallery for lots of ideas...WARNING...it's addicting! If you have friends that make cards try out the inks, paper, stamps, tools, etc. that they have before you buy.

Let go and enjoy!

Hi Desiree and welcome from New Zealand. Get books out of the library on card making and see what style of card appeals to you. Then you can see what equipment you need.

Smile Already addicted

Thank you for the advices. But the warning about the addiction came too late. I'm already addicted. I've been scrapbooking for 9 years now and a lot of my scrapbooking things overlap into stamping.
