New Stamparatus Reservation Window

Stamparatusbanner

Due to the extreme success of the last reservation window for the new Stamparatus, Stampin' Up! has decided to take things a bit differently when the reservation window opens up again tomorrow. 

The reservation window will remain open from December 5-30; however, during this reservation period they will take as many orders as they receive (yay!) and not close the window until December 30. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!

Please note the following changes:
* Beginning March 19, the Stamparatuses will ship in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5-30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
* In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows: one reservation per customer.
* Because we are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, we will not offer a third window. This is the last chance for you to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

Please note what has not changed:
* If you reserved more than one stamping tool during the first reservation period, that number will not change; you will still receive the same number you reserved.
* If you reserved one or more stamping tool(s) during the first reservation period, you may still order during the second window.
 
If you haven't already seen it, take a look at the video from Stampin' Up! and see how it works:
 
 
In case you missed it earlier, here are some of the amazing things it can do:
  • Make multiples with ease

  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images

  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over

  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money

  • 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

 
Click the flyer below to download the information.
 
Remember, credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from Stampin' Up!'s facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.
 

Please e-mail me if you have any questions or feedback.

I'd like to share a little story with you about this. 

Some of you may be aware that there is a positioning tool already out there on the market, called a "Mysti". One of my dear and faithful customers, Beth, sent me this note when I first announced the Stampin' Up! Stamparatus:

 "Well, it is too bad that Stampin' Up! came out with the Stamparatus after I bought the "Mysti."  I have had it about a year.  It makes layering multiple cards so much easier...if I didn't have this one (already) I would definitely buy Stampin' Up!'s...the really cool thing about it is...if you didn't get enough ink on the stamp, you  can restamp because it will go in the exact same spot! So cool..."

I responded that I understood, but I suggested that she still watch the video.  It took her a few days (Thanksgiving was in there in the middle), and then she texted me:

"I finally watched the video.  I want one!  It has alot more features than the Misti.  The 2 doors, and you can move them up and down.  Stamping 4 layers on one piece.The storage slots for the magnets!  It is far superior to the Misti... I love how the doors move up and down, and that way you can use both sides.  And then you have one door on the side and on top. Really nice. And your card stock stays put!  Really good! Love it!  It is amazing! The more into the video I got, the more excited I was. "

So! Even if you already have a stamp positioner, take Beth's advice and check out the Stampin' Up!'s Stamparatus!

What is a Stamparatus?

Stamparatusbanner

Stampin' Up! made a big announcement this weekend and I want to share it with you!!  They are releasing a brand new tool called The Stamparatus, a new way to stamp!  The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp!

I've had the privilege of being on a "Leader to Leader" focus group which has worked on this project for over a year.  I'm so excited that it is ready now... you are going to love it, and wonder how you ever got along without it!

Stamparatus

 

Watch this video to see what you can do with the Stamparatus (I also have it all listed below): 

 

  • Make multiples with ease

  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images

  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over

  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money

  • 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

With the launch of this tool comes a new reservation system. You will place a reservation and when your product is ready to be sent,  you will receive an email letting you know.  At that time you will go into your Stampin' Up! account online and your Stamparatus will be in your shopping cart.  You can then add to your cart if you want (it will be Saleabration time!) and when you place your order, your charge card will be charged. We're hopeful that with this new way of ordering, we can avoid back orders!

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:

  • You need to have an online store account to order the Stamparatus and place your reservation online.
  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.

  • Limit is 1 tool per customer per reservation window. 

  • You may participate in multiple reservation windows.

  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.

  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct. Stamparatusreservationtimes

Santa's Workshop

Christmasbough
I'm so excited about our upcoming Santa's Workshop!
I started doing these about three years ago, with the thought that it would be fun to get together the day after Thanksgiving, and NOT go to the malls, but get together and stamp and craft and get some last minute stuff done!  So that's what we do!  
 
For the first time, we'll meet in the dining room at  
The Sizzler Restaurant in Fullerton, on Harbor and Brea Blvd.
They have a fabulous, fresh salad bar that includes tacos, chili, soups, spaghetti, and soft serve ice cream and other desserts, PLUS all the great salad ingredients you could possibly want!  Of course you can also order a steak or shrimp or whatever sounds good to you.  So you won't go hungry for your dinner!   
 
SO, come and relax and have fun!  
 
I'm still creating, but here's some of the things I've come up with so far..   
 
A coffee caddy to hold candy, "K" cups, or whatever you would like!
 
 
Above:  M&M's in a treat tube make a cute gift card holder;
 a Rudolf cup is great for candy or a "K" cup;
a Cocoa packet is a fun neighbor or teacher gift;  
and chocolate-covered espresso beans make for another cute gift card holder. 
   
 
Handmade cards make a great gift! Let's decorate this box, and then fill it with four cards and envelopes.  
      
I have several more projects in the planning stage... you'll go home with lots of projects completed, and there will be some surprises too! 

 

Date: Friday, November 24, 2 - 9 pm
Cost: $60.
You will purchase your dinner at the Sizzler separately.
RSVP NOW.. no later than Monday, November 13.

 

You can see a video of these projects on my Facebook business page here, However you need to have a Facebook account to see the video.
