Default How do you advise?

What do you advise people to have when they first start stamping--besides stamps, of course!
What is your list of priorities?
I would say a good paper cutter, and as many varieties of colors of cardstock and ink as they can afford. This would come first for me before a variety of stamps! Do you agree?

I usually recommend stampin spots in their favorite color family - a cheap way to get a lot of colors. The assorted cardstock in the same color family. Then a good all purpose stamp set like tags & more & an all purpose word set like one of the simple sayings sets. A mono adhesive of course, and it's also nice to add a paper cutter if it's in the budget!

I usually advise multi-occasion stamp set or whatever they happen to be most drawn to.

Ink. Paper.

Stamps, Ink, Paper... "S.I.P."

I usually tell them to start with the very basics of a stamp set they like, preferably one that is all seasons, the basic black stamp pad, the Stampin' Pastels (so they have access to all our colours), the blender pens, white cardstock and a multi-coloured pack of cardstock in their favourite colour family. Oh, and mono-adhesive. I've managed to sell quite a few pastels set using this package.
