Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus – a new way to stamp!

Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus – a new way to stamp!

As mentioned earlier in the week I was away in Solihull last weekend. One of the biggest announcements made, (to much whooping and hollering) 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!

Here’s a video sharing the tool with you….

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 again.
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money.
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates.
  • Develop new and specialised stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement.

I need product details!

  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamps.
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps.
  • Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring.
  • Two open sides so you can stamp on larger paper.
  • Reversible plates, so a total of four surfaces to work with.
  • Two long magnets to hold the paper in place.
  • Magnet storage areas.
  • The price just £44!

How do I get one?

Great news!

While these are still in manufacturing mode, you can reserve your Stamparatus from tomorrow to be one of the first to get your hands on it! At 9pm on Thursday 16th November, you can participate in the first of three different reservation periods. Simply log into my Stampin’ Up! online store and follow the prompts.

You may have some other questions, so here are some answers…..

I am soooo excited! I have tried some of the other products on the market, but they dont come close to delivering all of the features of this product and my fellow demonstrators all agree.

So, don’t forget, from 9pm tomorrow night, you can reserve yours on my online shop. You won’t need to pay for it until it is ready to be shipped. BUT these reservation windows are on a While Stocks Last basis so I don’t think that they will last until these finish dates. I can’t wait!!!

I am grateful to all my customers for their loyal support so should you wish to place an order via my online shop please check out the following

  • Is your Stampin’ Up! order less than £150? If so, use the current Reward Code and receive a free gift from me along with other perks!
    • 37J7VFWB

  • If your order is over £150 please do not use the code as you will be your own Hostess and get your own rewards to spend!

Catch you soon

Onstage 2017 Spring Summer Catalogue 2018

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Onstage 2017 Spring Summer Catalogue 2018

SPOILER ALERT

This post is photo heavy and full of people having huge amounts of fun and a couple of sneak peaks from the soon to be released 2018 spring summer catalogue.

As I mentioned yesterday I spent this weekend in Solihull with over 480 fellow demonstrators celebrating everything Stampin’ Up!

But did I mention that I love being a demonstrator? Not only do I get early access to new products and earn discounts on my purchases, but I also get to hang out with these amazingly talented people.

I’m part of the hugely talented Royal Stampers headed up by Pip Todman. We are a little crazy, but its always  a delight to spend time with them.

The Royal stampers from part of a wider group of Stampin’ Stars headed up by the fabulous Natalie O’Shea who was honoured many times on stage and towards the end of the event was recognised in the top 50 out of 50,000 demonstrators in the world.

We all get on so well and it was great to shake a pom pom with Sam Hammond, Rebecca Willmore, Monica Gale, Jay Soriano, Barry Selwood, Lavinia Gruizinga & No 1 demo support Chris from our European Head Office.

So do you want to see a sneaky peaky?

Onstage Autumn 2017

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Onstage 2017

I’ve just got back from having loads of fun at the Stampin’ Up! 2017 OnStage local event in Solihull, with over 480 demonstrator friends! 🙂

We gather together every 6 months to share new catalogues and products, celebrate and swaps.  At these wonderful fun events we meet with team members and have a fabulous catch up.

We were so excited to see the new 2018 Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalogue AND the 2018 Sale a Bration brochure and have sneaky peaks of products, but, we are not allowed to share the new items in any guise until Monday, Nov. 13 at 8pm

So what can I share today……..

Swaps

We have the option to give out ‘swaps’ which are card or 3d samples.  We make as many as we wish all in the same design (because its easier to make lots of the same design) and swap them at the event with other demos.  So that means I arrive with lots of the same card and come home with loads and loads of card ideas and samples in different designs and varying stamp sets. Better still its a great way to meet fellow demo’s from different teams or even countries depending on the event.

Here is what I made this year…..

Little Origami pouches filled with Chocolate covered coffee beans using the Coffee Cafe stamp & Die Bundle and the Fresh Floral

And here are a selection of the beautiful swaps that I received in return

DSCN4158DSCN4161DSCN4163DSCN4165DSCN4157

I even received one very similar to the one that I made! Great minds eh?

And finally some of my fellow demo’s give me some amazing presents and I am overwhelmed by  their kindness and generosity. Firstly my up line Pip Todman gave all the direct members of her team laser etched blocks.

To the right my generous upline’s upline or Stampin’ Granny as I teasingly call her (despite the fact that there is virtually no difference in our ages), Diane Marlow. The centre my beautiful hair twin and birthday girl Rebecca Willmore and my gorgeous fellow demo and retreat partner in crime. Sue Hookins. Don’t you just love those luxurious treat bags.

DSCN4166

Finally, I felt very humbled receiving this beautiful gift from the fabulous Monica Gale. The packaging was so beautiful I was reluctant to even open it, but I’m glad I did. look at these beautiful handmade bath salts and even better all the packaging is made with Stampin’ Up products

If you want to see some more then check out my facebook site or check back here tomorrow night when I will bring you some news from Onstage and maybe a few sneaky peaks from the upcoming new catalogue.

Want to see a copy of the new catalogue as soon as I receive them in Mid December?  Then contact me with your details for a copy to be sent out by post.

So you now have the perfect excuse to curl up on the sofa with a mug or glass of whatever you fancy and peruse the catalogue for all your seasonal homemade projects.

Red and gold wedding card

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Red and gold wedding card

Craftylittleminx wedding day wishes

The Stampin’ Up! Celebration Time Bundle was just the right touch for this handmade wedding card.

The Shimmer card, gold and real red colour scheme matched with the wedding stationery that the bride and her bridesmaids had already made and makes it extra classy and elegant, don’t you think?

Embossing the cake really makes the cake look opulent. Fit for a bride and her groom.

I also quickly knocked up a small gift box for the bride using the Trim the stocking die from the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue

Love this card? Place an order by 30th September and you will receive the tutorial for this card and all the other projects in my classes this month.

10 undeniable reasons why Autumn is the best season.

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – 10 undeniable reasons why Autumn is the best season

The summer days are drifting away, the nights are drawing in, there’s a chill in the air and even the die hards have been seen wearing trousers and shoes instead of the usual shorts and flip flops combo. That’s right, it’s Autumn. But there’s no need to let the change of season get you down – here’s a list of reasons to love this time of year.

1. There is nothing more beautiful than watching the leaves in your garden turn from green to yellow, to orange and then if you are lucky deep red

2. It’s time to wrap up warm in scarves, hats, gloves and comfy knitted jumpers. AKA a  perfect excuse for a whole new autumnal wardrobe

3.  Soup, homemade stews and hot chocolate topped with marshmallows and cream. Enough said.

4. Halloween – a night when we get a free pass to carve lanterns out of vegetables, watch spooky films, dress up, eat loads of sweets and generally act like a child again.

5. It’s too cold for a night on the town, so it’s a good job there’s plenty for you to watch on the box. Autumn boasts the return of The Great British Bake off and Strictly Come Dancing

6. There’s just nothing quite so satisfying as jumping into a pile of really crisp, crunchy leaves. Again and again and again.

7. Bonfire Night. Fireworks, hot dogs, treacle toffee, & sparklers… what can beat it?

8. Taking cold, crisp morning walks. Refreshing and a great way to clear the cobwebs.

9. Darker evenings mean there’s more time to cosy up by the fireplace with your loved ones, pets, aforementioned mugs of hot chocolate and Paul Hollywood – on the telly, of course!

10. But really at the end of it all the best thing about saying goodbye to summer for me is the launch of our Autumn/Winter catalogue!
