It looks good. I was hoping for slightly more specific stamps since there will be one/month related to story-telling.  The first one that she's showing on her blog covers fairly well-covered ground: "Remember"; "Love This"; etc.  Perhaps it's just because it's the first one and meant to get those w/o stamps into Ail's story-telling style.  Still, I hope future releases focus more on stamps around a theme.

 

What are your first impressions/comments?

It looked pretty to me! But then I only have a few stamps, so I don't have stamps that already have those sentiments. It's expensive though, because I probably won't have time for the class and materials that go along with it. I just want the stamp!

I'm kind of glad that they are general.  If they get too specific half of them probably won't suit me (or half the world).  We don't do 'fall', Halloween, thanksgiving etc. in Australia, (at least we are trying to stay away from Halloween - but the lolly companies keep pushing).  And if they are too specific they are harder to use for multiple applications.  I'm looking forward to the story starters etc. that are supposed to go along with it.

I decided to try this out, I did the 1-month subscription. The stamp reveal happened and I wasn't thrilled, because like it was said they seemed pretty general and I wasn't sure if I would get my monies worth out of such generic stamps. Then the 15th happened and the classroom opened up and I was floored, there was a 30 minute intro video that really got me inspired. After the 1st video, I was able to create a layout based on a "Story Spark" (idea inspired by the prompts) even before the stamps arrived, then my stamps arrived and I have created a layout based on Ali's process video (which was 40 minutes) and there is an 8 page PDF, part of which goes from stamp to stamp talking about ways you can use them. Do I feel like I got $24 worth out of it? absolutely! Another great thing about these stamps in particular is that they can be reused, so I don't have a stamp set that I can only use for 1-2 months out of the year.

Dang!!!! Sold! And I was trying to be so-o-o good. I would have "liked" your Post, except I'm mad at you.  No, I'm not in 3rd grade, so I'll say I'm sorry right away!

I'm a big fan of Ali's style so I jumped in with both feet, blind. I love the first set even tho I don't have it in my hands quite yet. When the "classroom and prompts" opened up I was in heaven. Ali spared nothing. Top notch pro job. Good bang for the buck! She delivered. I am so happy I signed up for full 12 months.
