Default Which free set for 'new demo' during Sale-A-Bration?

I would really appreciate your input about which stamp set you would choose as your free stamp set upon joining Stampin' Up as a demo during SAB. Taking into account that you want to get the most bang for your buck $ wise but also a set with good versatility. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Hi, I am not a demo, but I have a few friends who are and I think the ribbon and the paper are always a safe bet because you will always need them or use them and easy to sell if they retire. Unless you are in the need more stamp sets, I personally like the yummy set, the swirly design would be very versatile for any occasion.

You want to get one that you love! It won't do you any good having it sit on your shelf not loved or demoed. It's tempting to choose from the most expensive alphas, but if you don't use them it's a waste.

If you're a scrapbooker, then one of the alphas would be great. the new Wonderful Watercolors is beautiful, and you could either stamp the outline in stazon and color it in, or do the two-step stampin.

See what styles you like and would use, make a list, then you can choose from the most expensive.

I'm getting Define Your Life. I've always thought it was neat but didn't want to spend the $$. I think you can make lots of neat cards as well as other projects with it. JIMHO Congrats on signing up as a demo! I'm super excited and will have my first workshop on 2/15!

I got Define Your Life when I signed on in Oct. I'd do the same if I were signing on now. I think it's very versatile and will get a lot of use in my stamproom.

Now, I haven't used it YET, as I was working on Christmas cards from the time I signed up until I just got back from vacation. But I have many ideas floating in my head about how to use it, including using it with the new Curly Label Big Shot card die and the Curly Label punch itself.

Congrats on signing up and welcome to the SU family!!!
