Things to Know

The Stamparatus Reservation Period is Almost Here!

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

We had a few big and exciting announcements over the last weekend at OnStage, and one is the launch of the long-awaited Stamparatus (Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive design on a stamp placement tool!)

How is the different from other tools on the market?  For one, it was developed by demonstrators like me who work with customers like you!

The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it! 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
  • 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

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
  • 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–$99.00 NZD

How do I get one?

Good news!  While these are still in manufacturing mode, you can reserve your Stamparatus now to be one of the first to get your hands on it!  As of  the 17th of November, you can participate in three different reservation periods.  Simply log into the Stampin’ Up! online store and follow the prompts.  Cheat Sheet for Ordering the Stamparatus

Three of My Favorite Things! – Top Picks 2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

There are SO MANY new and exciting products in the new 2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue!  Today I want to share three of my top picks:


These may or may not look that exciting at first glance, but they are GREAT!   I’ve already used them on so many projects; all my June classes will have these papers in them too.   Perfect for masculine, florals, teenagers, sympathy . . . . just oh so versatile. And they come in a handy 6×6 size 48 in the pack!




I will freely confess I have never used texture paste and am still eagerly awaiting my order to arrive, BUT I have seen and/or been given projects with these awesome product on it and wow!   I absolutely cannot wait to play with this and share it with you in classes.  The paste can be coloured, stamped, and inked and adds such wonderful dimension to a project.   I’m a lover of vintage styles, especially “clean vintage” and this is just going to be used over and over and over . . . . . .




I didn’t see this product coming, but how clever!  I love it!   Even better, you get 720 dimensionals for the same $7.25!  Both sizes are great, but I look forward to these smaller ones for the smaller elements on a project.   Plus don’t forget to use all the edges, too!


And I didn’t even get into the stamps,dies, punches, and ribbons!  There is so much great fun to be had.  Please consider joining us for a class; I’d sure love to have you along!   If I don’t have one listed in your area, I’d be happy to book in a class near to you or give you the name of someone close.  As demonstrators on a team, we just want to share what we love with you!

Do you have your copy of the catalogue?

Brand New! 2017-2019 Five New In-Colours! Comparion and Inventory Charts!

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

I hope you are enjoying the long weekend!  Today’s share is a long one, but with lots of resources and goodies!  Please have a read all the way to the end.   All the card samples are using the new Colorful Seasons Bundle.  

I want to introduce you to the five new Stampin’ Up! colours:

Please meet Fresh Fig:


From top to bottom, the colours used here are Pink Pirouette, Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, and Fresh Fig.  The flowers are in Fresh Fig as well.     Fresh Fig is a very rich, dark wine sort of colour.


Please meet Tranquil Tide:

From top to bottom, the colours used here are Pool Party, Island Indigo, Tranquil Tide, and Always Artichoke.   As demonstrated in the video below, Tranquil Tide is very much an “in between” colour.  It will definitely change character depending on which colours you use it with!


Please meet Berry Burst:

From top to bottom we have Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst, Rich Razzleberry, and Fresh Fig.  The chair is also in Berry Burst.   This colour is a purple-pink with a good amount of vibrancy.


Please meet Lemon Lime Twist:

I predict this will be the most popular colour of the five!  Think fresh granny smith apples here.  From top to bottom, I have used Lemon LIme Twist, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, and Always Artichoke.   The leaf is also out of Lemon Lime Twist.


Please meet Powder Pink:

Colours from top to bottom are Pink Pirouette, Powder Pink, Blushing Bride, and Rose Red.  Powder Pink is soft purpley-pink, perfect for subtle projects or perhaps baby cards.

Please keep in mind that you can buy all five of these ink pads in a bundle for virtually the same price as buying four of them individually. This is your best deal!


Please also download your Free In-Colour Inventory Chart and Free In-Colour Combination Idea Chart!
