Stamparatus reservation countdown - only 4 more days!

The NEW Stamparatus reservation window has been open since December 5th, and if you haven't gone onto my website yet to reserve yours, then you only have until 10:50 pm (Pacific) on December 30th to add your name to the list - see all the details below and click this link to add your name!

Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!
  • Make multiples with ease (do you make several of the same card at a time?)
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images (do you have problems with pressure when stamping?) 
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money (is your recycle bin full of mis-stamped images?)
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement (new ideas will be posted frequently!)

I need product details!

  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamp
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
  • Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring (on the clear plates too!)
  • 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper (yes, even 12" x 12" cardstock)
  • 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with (check out the videos!)
  • 2 magnets to hold the paper in place (they are super strong so don't snap them together!)
  • Magnet storage areas (on the underside - they will never get lost!)
  • Product dimensions are 8"x 8" x 7/8"
  • Retail Price–$65.00 CAD

The hinged plates move easily from one position to the next, making it so quick to do multiple stamping on your cardstock without moving the stamp! Check out Stampin' Up!'s Five Things to Know video for more information on how to use the Stamparatus!

I've ordered mine, and when you order yours (and receive it) let me know and I will give you a complimentary class to review all the possibilities!  It's definitely going to be your next go-to tool that you will take with you whenever you want to scrapbook, make some cards or any other paper crafting project.

Step 1 - Click on this link to my store before December 30th at 10:50 pm (Pacific)
Step 2 - Log into your customer account on my website - if you don't have a customer profile, then create one first, as you cannot reserve a Stamparatus without one.
Step 3 - Click on the Stamparatus "Reserve Now" banner ad.
Step 4 - Enter your credit card information (you will NOT pay until the Stamparatus ships to you!)
Step 5 - Click reserve in the Reservations window.

A confirmation email will be sent shortly after to your inbox. That's it until the order is ready to ship. If you want to cancel, follow the steps to the reservation window, click on "Cancel Reservation" and your reservation will be removed from the system.

Stampin' Up! will send you another email when your order is ready to ship - first orders are expected to ship on March 19th - at that time you will be directed to go into your customer profile on my website, confirm your order, go to Checkout and pay. You may add other items to your order at the same time and pay for everything at once! And if you need to, you can amend/update your credit card information, and your address.

If you miss out, the Stamparatus will be in the new Annual Catalogue available June 2018, but do you really want to wait that long???

Happy stamping,

Love this fun Pizza Box Gift Holder + reserve your Stamparatus!

Can you believe it's December already? I just love the holiday season, but it's easy to let it run away with all our time. To help you get your Christmas list checked off quickly and easily I've included a sweet gift tutorial and some no-fuss gift giving ideas.

One of my favourite gifts to give is Paper Pumpkin. It's creative, unique, great for everyone from pre-teens on up, one-size-does-actually-fit-all, it's delivered for you, and you can get pre-paid gift certificates from 1 month to 1 year, so it fits any budget, awesome!

Kits make great gifts, too. The Soft Sayings Card Kit (#145466) and Oh Happy Day Card Kit (#142725) include coordinating stamp sets and are ideal for a stamper who has some stamping supplies, but not a lot of time to design. The Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit (#146013) and coordinating Hello Friend stamp set (#144055/#144059) are a creative option for the more advanced stamper.

You've been good this year. Help Santa out with a Wish List so he doesn't have to guess what you'd like in your stocking. Santa will appreciate the tips.

When you shop with me you support my small business, which I truly appreciate, you get unique creative gifts, and you don't have to fight any grumpy shopping crowds. It's a true win-win!

Here is a quick gift giving project tutorial I sent to my email subscribers.  I hope you enjoy seeing it and I can send you the tutorial too!

Check out my Shop Now button to reserve your Stamparatus - yes, you can reserve from today until December 31st - but the sooner you reserve, the sooner you will get yours. Orders will be filled and shipped based on reservation date - starting mid-March 2018 and you don't pay until you get the email advising Stampin' Up! is ready to ship! Awesome 🙂
