Fun Stampers Journey
I learned about Fun Stampers Journey through YouTube videos, and some of the products really intrigued me. They carry stamps, papers, inks, sprays, paper crafting tools, mixed media products, and more.
I definitely wanted to try the FSJ ink pads. The ink is a combination of dye and pigment ink, making the colors very vibrant, yet quick drying. I love the vibrancy of pigment inks, but I don’t want to wait for them to dry, or use a heat tool, when making a simple card.
FSJ carries unmounted red rubber stamps that actually have pictures on the back. I have quite a collection of clear acrylic stamps, and a few red rubber stamps mounted on wood, so I really wanted to give these stamps a try. The problem that I had with red rubber stamps in the past was trying to line them up on a project. The lack of a picture made it hard to see where you were stamping, and if the stamp was mounted on wood it was even harder to figure out how to line up the image.
THE DIE CUTTING TOOLS
FSJ has two die cutting machines. The Amaze Machine is their small machine and seems comparable to the Cuttlebug. The Journey Platinum Machine is larger and comes with a magnetic plate. The die cutting area is 8 1/2 inches wide!
I was innocently watching a YouTube video when I discovered that FSJ coaches (people who sell the product through home parties, their on-line websites, etc.) received a 20% discount on products for themselves, and a 20% commission on anything they sell.
As if that wasn’t enough incentive, there was a discount code offering $50 off two of their new coaches kits. One of the kits contains the Journey Platinum Machine. This kit is $149.99 with the discount code, and the Platinum machine retails for $249.99.
I guess you know what happened next. That’s right, I ordered the Platinum Kit once I researched all of the products I would be receiving for $149.99 (plus taxes and shipping.)
