Thinking of Doing Stampin Up Demonstrator - Any advice??

I went to a really good card making class yesterday for Stampin Up and thinking of buying the demonstrator kit for £120.  Don't really want to do any demonstrating or selling at parties but wonder if anyone has any advice on whether the kit is good, worth the price, etc.  Also does anyone just do direct selling with people contacting you locally to buy products from the catalogues?

Any help or advice on this would be brilliant.

I will upload some photos of the cards I made at the event later today.

Mo Manning - Its a Boy Card

Here is a card that I have made for my friend who is having a little baby boy in a couple of weeks.

The picture is from Mo Mannning and is called Spit Happens.    It is coloured in with Promarkers and then layered up using a fairly new pad I have from Bo Bunny called something like Home.  I covered up the words on the paper with the picture.  I then die cut some flowers from the same papers and also stamped and layered up some words.

LOTV Positively Pampered Birthday Card

Today's card (and entry into the new LOTV Challenge) is the Positively Pampered stamp from LOTV.

I stamped this image onto one of the Kanban stackers in a round style and then coloured in with Promarkers.  The background circle was stamped with a very old stamp (sorry I don't know whose it is) and then the front was distressed using black soot inkpad.

This was all layered up onto a Craftwork Cards easel card blank and then Magnolia red Christmas paper used as a background, layered on jet black card.

The LOTV sentiment placed on a layer of black and red ribbon finishes the card.

I absolutely loved this card and gave it to one of my crafting pals, as I knew she would appreciate the work that went into it.

Very simple card, no ribbons, flourishes or gems.

Penny Black - Large Tabby Cat Birthday Card

Today's card is a lovely Penny Black large tabby cat. I adore this image as it is a really big size.  I should have made this a Valentine's card but didn't and made it birthday instead.

The image as previously mentioned is Penny Black and I then used some old DCWV papers in the background and a couple of tags layered up for the sentiment.  Then a knotted bit of ribbon finished this off.

Not too detailed for a man's card, but really cute.

Mo Manning - Sweet Baby Girl Card

Today's card is a lovely Mo Manning baby card.  We have had lots of babies born and due to be born at my work recently so I made loads of cards.  This is one of them.

I coloured the baby in using Promarkers and then used my DCWV Nana's Nursery papers in the girl range for the background (not sure if you can still get this paper) and a couple of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The wording is a rub on from a very old K&Co kit (I think).

Penny Black - Little Mice Card

Here is today's card - it is a Penny Black stamp of little mice with flowers.  I made it very simple with a chipboard flourish on it and layered up on a pale lemon card.

Can be used for anything then.

Molly Bloom Farmyard with Barn and Cow - Birthday Card

Here is a card I made for my Dad's birthday, he is a farmer.

I used mainly Molly Bloom stamps on this, the farmyard with barn and the cow.  I am now sure if the grass bank is a Molly Bloom or a Magnolia, I can't remember.  The words are from a Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp.

All coloured in with Promarkers and a little run of wide brown sheer ribbon was run along the bottom.

My Dad loved this card, which was pretty amazing to come from a man, me thinks!!
