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!

Catch you soon

Back to the future- Part 1

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Back to the future Part 1

I’ve been missing in action for a good while. Miss me? I got married last year and with a very full on full time job, classes and planning a wedding something had to give…… I think we feel we have to try and  do it all, but for me it just wasn’t happening and it was affecting me so much that I just had to sit myself down have a good talk to myself and plan what I could and couldn’t do. So this blog post is a little catch up before the main event starts the launch of the new 2016-17 Stampin Up! catalogue. I bet you can’t wait, so check back over the next few days for some fabulous sneak peaks and a bit more on recent events.

So back in September I married my partner of 15 years and although we planned a simple event that basically meant that I ended up spending lots of time making it perfect instead of handing it over to a hotel to do it their way. Of course my crafty passion had to factor through the day so I made all the wedding stationery, signs, menus and little favours. We were blessed to have such amazing friends and family to share our perfect day with us and we even managed to fit in a game of cricket, another of our great passions.


The next week I had classes and then myself and a couple of other SU Demo’s had a stall with a make n take in our local village fete and the sun shone and we had great fun as you can see below when the lady mayor dropped by with a couple of friends


A month later we were off on our ‘mini’ moon, 10 days travelling by train around Austria, Switzerland with a final three days in the Italian lakes. The weather was amazing for the time of year and we loved spending time wandering round exploring some amazing places.

No sooner were we back then I was fully engrossed in classes and events for Xmas. I typically have 1-2 classes per month, but in the run up to Xmas it really ramps up and I was also booked up for a couple of Crafter-noon parties as well.  Phew busy busy!!!


November saw one of my team heading off the Brussels with me for the first ever Stampin Up! OnStage live event. 800+ demonstrators all in one place, catching up, ‘swapping’, crafting, learning about new products   and business training. I adore Brussels, but unfortunately our visit was marred by the atrocities in Paris.IMG_1596

Its times like these that you realise how much of a family we all are in Stampin Up!, as we all found a way to support our French demonstrators some of whom were in Paris that night,be if by messages, poems, cards or hugs for those with us at the event. On that note I will leave you with one last photo of Brussels showing its solidarity and support along with many cities around the world in condemning the events of that night.


Sending you thanks for looking
