Stamparatus Pre Order Starts NOW!

If you missed my newsletter and FaceBook updates this week, honestly do yourself a favour and check out this amazing new tool from Stampin’ Up!

Personally I’m pretty excited about this tool as I’ve been privileged to be part of the global development group for the last umm 2 years that has been working on this…….so it’s sort of exciting to finally see this come to fruition!

The Stamparatus is AMAZING and will change the way you stamp as it:

  • 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

The Stamparatus features:

  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamp
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
  • Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring
  • 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper
  • 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with
  • 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
  • Magnet storage areas
  • Retail Price–$85.00 AUD/$99.00 NZD

The Stamparatus will become an standard order able item in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue, however you do have an opportunity (or three) to pre-order it via the reservations windows.

There is a limit of one tool per person per reservation window so you can over time get more than one……you will require a credit card to reserve your Stamparatus which will not be charged until your tool is ready to ship from the warehouse, also enabling you to add to your order. Stampin’ Up! has chosen to do this launch via the reservation method in order to avoid frustrating backorders and to ensure the amount of tools required are how many the factory produces.

So if you would like to reserve your Stamparatus, please go to my website and do so today!

Christmas Card Buffet part 2

Opps I’m not sure why I forgot, but here’s the second part of our Christmas Craft Buffet projects, so here they are better late than never!

How cute are these little Christmas Stockings? They can contain small treats or  a gift card. you can use the thinlits to make a pillbox or just a funky tag using the Tags & Trimmings bundle and the Quilted Christmas 6″x6″ designer paper.

Project number 7 is made using products from the Annual Catalogue and I love it, perfect for Christmas, but equally useful for other occasions depending upon the sentiment stamped on the inside of the card. The bird is from Best Birds which has coordinating Birds & Blooms thinlits to cut the branch and bird out and layers with the Stitched Shapes framelits and the Woodland textured impressions embossing folder

Project 8 was made using the beautiful Star of Light Photopolymer stamp set which also has co-ordinating Starlight Thinlits Dies which when combined with the emboss resist technique gives a beautify elegant result.

These fun trio of gift tags made project 9 a popular choice, featuring the Merry Little Labels Bundle (which saves you 10% when you get the stamps and punch that co-ordinate) is available in wood or clear mount rubber. The product suite also includes the beautiful black, white & Old Olive designer Series Paper called Merry Little Christmas.

Project 10 has to be my personal favourite – these acetate card boxes are AMAZING! I totally love them, you can fit 5 standard cards and envelopes in them and you get 10 boxes for just $11.50 making them prefect for gift giving (the boxes are also make great treat and small gift holders). The boxes were combined with another sentiment from the Merry Little Labels and the stitched framelit dies and the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper and mini gold sequin trim.

In addition to the ten terrific projects that the ladies had to chose from at our Christmas Card Buffet there was also a couple of door prizes and a gift for everyone who came. To ensure that energy levels were maintained there were refreshments both healthy and umm more calorie dense!

If you would like a copy of the Holiday Catalogue please let me know and I will send you one.

Christmas Card Buffet Projects part 1

So we had a lovely group of ladies come and craft with us recently at our Christmas Craft Buffet. There was lots of chatter, crafting, prizes and of course some yummy refreshments to be shared. As the event was of course Christmas themed it also involved carols, trees and lights……

The ladies got to chose how many projects (from 3-10) they wanted to complete in the afternoon from 10 different designs. A few were early and got a head start on the projects as you can see below

The first project was a card using Seasonal Chums – totally love this little reindeer and the Merry Music Specialty paper is definitely a hot favourite with me!

The second project was using the perennial favourite Cookie Cutter Christmas with the awesome co-ordinating punch!

The third project was white heat embossed Lovely As A Tree that I use so much – it has to be my absolute favourite Stampin’ Up! set with the Pinewood Planks textured impressions embossing folder and a sentiment from Butterfly Basics.

The fourth project was a pair of bottle tags – totally love these, an awesome way to decorate a bottle of wine. Both tags has designer series paper from the Merry Music Specialty pack, the red tag featured stamps from the new Half Full set and a holly punch embellishment. The other tag was stamped with the new Merry Little Labels stamp set which also comes with a co-ordinating Everyday Label punch.

The fifth project was made using the super versatile Painted Harvest stamp set – one of my firm favourites from the new Holiday Catalogue. The sentiment is from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set in the Annual Catalogue.

Since this post is getting a bit long, I’ll put the other 5 projects onto a seperate post soon. If you would like a copy of the new Holiday Catalogue, please let me know and I would be happy to mail one to you if the PDF version just isn’t the answer!

Ribbon of Courage Breast Cancer Card

When I got the new Annual Catalogue one of the first things that caught my eye was the Ribbon of Courage stamp set with matching framelits. These stamps are beautiful and sadly I don’t know anyone who hasn’t been affected by cancer in one form or another so cards made with this set will no doubt be well received.

The colours can be changed of course to meet the specific cancer colour, if you are wondering which colours are which cancer then you can see this chart here. The sentiment for the card below is from Thoughts and Prayers.

This bundle is great value and available in clear mount $63.75 or wood mount $76.50 of course if you just want the stamps or framelits separately they are also available with the clear mount stamp set being $33, wood mount $47 and framelits $38.

The card was well received (from the e-note they sent to my Cherub), partly because it’s just nice to get happy mail when you’re not well, but also because it seems greeting cards are a dying breed in this instant electronic age, but sometimes it’s worth the effort to say I care by sending a piece of myself (i.e. my time) to someone.
