Hello there! Stampin’ Up! has come out with their own new stamp positioning tool. I saw this last month being demonstrated at OnStage in Salt Lake City. It’s absolutely fantastic and nothing like I’ve never seen before. Oh the options!
If you would like to reserve yours now, move fast. I actually missed out on the first open reservation as they sold out within 15 minutes. Delivery will not be until March. In the meantime, please enjoy the video below that introduces you to the Stamparatus that you can reserve now in my online store.
A must-have tool for all stampers, the Stamparatus helps you perfectly align stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and precisely, and get complete ink coverage.
It was created by stampers for stampers, so it has all the features you want:

- 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with
- 2 magnets to hold the paper in place

It’s very cool and the presentation was nothing short of amazing. I can’t wait to work with this and show you all of the tips and tricks that I learned. She’s a gem and at an incredible price point compared to other stamp positioning tools on the market. I love how Stampin’ Up! really thinks of everything from traveling with your tools to overall user friendliness. I really hope that you will reserve yours today. It is amazing!
In the meantime, I’m still recovering from that horrific accident I had 3 weeks ago and also hating daylight savings time right now. It gets dark way too early and although I’m doing better driving in the dark and not having hyperventilating panic attacks every single time, I still don’t like driving at night. There’s a reason why they have 35 mph listed on country roads, not the 65 mph I was going. I now obey all posted speed limits. Nobody will ever believe that, but it’s true. Nothing will change bad driving habits faster than totaling a full-size SUV. That was my first wreck ever and I obviously went big. I have a tendency to do that. Being in that kind of accident messes with your head and I’m struggling with it. You think and you think about a lot. You reprioritize. You really get that life is too short for toxic drama rather than just saying it when you’re told that you would have died in your personal vehicle. You hear the phrase of “deer in headlights” a lot. You REALLY get what that means when one commits suicide in front of you.
I do plan on picking up a bit next week. With Occasions and Sale-A-Bration coming up, I’ve really dropped the ball and have not promoted either at all or have made you samples to share. I can assure you both catalogs are phenomenally fabulous and you will love the new products coming out. I was able to play with those as well and it was fun! It’s getting easier to breathe. Winter is here now and the weather isn’t helping me too much. My oxygen saturation is staying above 90% and that’s a very good thing. My doctor prefers 92% minimum; collapsed lung, broken and cracked ribs, and I’m now a lighter shade of purple, like Wisteria Wonder mixed with a bit of Basic Gray and Marina Mist. I’m a tiny waif and took a wicked beating. Girl stuff…..I’m a 32, wear size 0 pants, 118 pounds, 5’5″.
I would like to thank everybody for the cards! I so wasn’t expecting so much kindness and love from complete strangers and friends. The mailman has been so generous in bringing my mail to the door for me. I’ve had a tremendous amount of support and am so grateful. I’m getting there.
I would like to leave you with a picture of my Princess and I on Thanksgiving. Best Thanksgiving ever! We have a Monday night standing dinner date and last night, she got into a bit of trouble, as well as too numerous to count cars with something on the highway that punctured tires. It was dark, cold, and my baby ended up with 2 flat tires on the side of the road. Poor dear was very unnerved, which, of course, had me unnerved, but her wonderful boyfriend and I just took care of business, she has my car to use and she’s okay. That’s all I care about. I hope you enjoy the picture. We do a lot of selfies, it’s fun and I love it.
Thank you so very much for stopping by today to visit me. I am guest designing over at A Muse this month and will have some projects to share with you.
There’s also this wonderful Scrappy Stampers Getaway Retreat coming up in Virginia Beach that I’m a part of in March 2018 where I will be teaching a couple of classes. I will have more information on that for you in a separate blog post hopefully later this week as there is a $50 discount if you prepay before the end of the month that you should really take advantage of. Think of it this way, it’s a Stampin’ Up! Bundle extra money. I’m very honored to have been asked to demo and teach. I’m also looking very forward to this event of THE BEACH in March when I will be so ready for that, the humidity, the good stuff. Love it all. This getaway is always sold out due to the projects that we design for you, great teachers, a lot of fun, no schedule but lazy, and I’m all about that! Check out the info on the above link and let Tracie know that I referred you and you let me know too! I have gifts for you.
If you would like to take advantage of any Stampin’ Up! specials and promotions, including joining my team, please head on over to my online store website to for updates to the Clearance Rack, end of year sales, retiring product deeply discounted deals, and so much more. I always say this, but really now is the absolute best time of year to join my team of The Creative Stampers. Sale-A-Bration is the biggest Stampin’ Up! event of the year. The stamp sets are phenomenal and some are even carrying over to the 2018-2019 Idea Book & Catalog, which is a first in Stampin’ Up! history. There’s a lot of great things going on at SU and you will love being a part of it. I do and have for the past 11 years. Join me and check it out for yourself, especially the minimum 20% discount on your personal products, free products, the ability to order 4-6 weeks in advance, OnStage and Regional events where you get a ton of free products. I had to take my SU bag full of free products as a carry-on when I flew home from Salt Lake. I wasn’t expecting so many products! SU goes all out for you with demo-only products and it’s great being able to have such exclusive items before the pre-order even starts. The motivation, networking, and learning is outstanding! I got to see a lot of ladies that I haven’t seen in years and met new friends who I’ve known from online in person. That’s really fun.
For my customers, your November Thank You cards have been sent out and you have also been mailed the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs from the home office that you should be receiving any day now, but only if you’ve made a purchase from me in the past year. Your Thank You cards are made with NEW OCCASIONS PRODUCTS from paper to stamps to everything! If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would love to earn your business and I will send you catalogs upon request within the United States only due to policy.
A big thank you to my customers and friends for your prayers, continued support, cards, gifts, thoughts, and wishes; and my fellow demonstrators. You’re all the best. Until next time, God bless and have a great day.
Again, I’m very grateful for all of you.
