Love these Stampin Up Pizza boxes!

I just love these Stampin Up Pizza boxes!  Simply pair them with the 3×3 envelopes and note cards for a super cute and easy gift!

Everything can be found in the Holiday mini catalog!  The exceptions are the basic cardstock in Whisper White and Old Olive.   Also the inks Old Olive and Memento Black, which is in the yearly big catty.

The suite of products I used was Ready for Christmas in the 2017 Holiday catalog.  Simply stamp the tree in Old Olive ink full strength, then move down and to right to stamp off some color.  This is done for each of the envelopes and the front of one notecard ( which I cut at 5.5″ x 2.75″ then score and fold at 2.75″)  Finally, the 2 sprigs of greenery are from the coordinating die cut set!

The designer series paper is from the Merry Little Christmas suite of products.  As well as the 7/8″ Black and white striped ribbon.  Yes we did cut the edges off on the notecard!

This was one of the projects from our Christmas Stamp Event and everyone loved it!  I loved hearing all the ladies making plans for what they were going to do with the pizza boxes they were going to purchase!  Can’t wait to see what everyone creates!

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Alternative

This is one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin Alternative ideas!  I love how many cards I was able to make with the Pillow boxes that originally came in the kit!

I do have to say, better late than never for this Paper Pumpkin kit, which is from September!  Simply got crazy busy!  I do love the pillow boxes that came in the kit, but I give a TON of Thank You cards out by hand and by mail!!  So I did some adjusting! 

I trimmed the top and bottom off all the pillow boxes, plus I trimmed 1/8″ off each side.  this gave me 16 beautifully embossed layers which I added to a Soft Suede cardstock base.  Of course also made up all the notecards.  The only other item I added was a few pieces from the Eastern Gold vinyl sticker sheets to the round tags.

September Paper Pumpkin as it was meant to be

Super cute right??  If you want these little gems delivered right to your door every month you have lots of options:

  Check out your Paper Pumpkin kit options here!

Here’s a valuable Stampin’ Cat tip:  If you prepay for the 1 year subscription under your own order, you not only save the $2 every month, but you also get the added benefit of getting the free hostess $$ to spend on anything that you want!  That is getting more than $20 in free product!!  Wow!!

I can’t believe I am able to share so much from the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Occasions & Sale-a-Bration Sneak Peek from the Onstage live event in Salt Lake City!

I made an entire video to share with everyone all of the items that just came from my demo pre-order!  Woohoo!  I was drooling over the catalog, it’s even better live!  Here’s the sneak peek!

This years theme was Love it.  Live it.  Share it.  Perfect!

 

 

 

 

I so love going to the live events with our group, this is a pic of a few of us!  Can you believe three ladies were first timers!  I remember being being so amazed at the energy when I first started going!   It was so much fun!!  Can you say “Prize Patrol!”  Love being able to see all the new catalog items in action created live on stage!

A huge crowd waits for the doors to open!

It is so amazing to see all the ladies gathering, talking, swapping cards and catching up!  My friend actually brought 250 swaps and managed to swap them all!!  I only bring 100 and that’s alot of work!

 

Woohoo!  I got to walk the stage for earning the 2018 Alaska cruise thanks to all of you!!   Thanks for all the support and encouragement!

Introducing the Stampin’Up! Stamparatus

Introducing the Stampin'Up! Stamparatus

Introducing the Stampin’Up! Stamparatus

Oh my goodness, this is game changing!  Here is the video:

OKAY. I’VE GOTTA HAVE ONE. HOW DO I GET IN LINE?

With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Demonstrators and customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:
  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • Limit is 3 tools per demonstrator and 1 tool per customer per reservation window. (Note: The Stamparatus is not a Cash-and-Carry item.)
  • Customers may participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.

Introducing the Stampin’Up! Stamparatus
Customer Stamparatus Launch Q & A
Q: How do I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: Normally you order Stampin’ Up! products through the online store; in this case, you will click the RESERVE link on the Stamparatus page which will take you to the reservation page. For step-by-step instructions, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers.

Buy yours NOW!

Q: What if I do not have a Stampin’ Up! customer account?
A: To reserve a Stamparatus, you must have a customer account. To create one, click Create Account on the online store.
Q: Why does it take so long for the Stamparatus to ship?
A: We will place an order with the manufacturer based on how many reservations are made during any given reservation window. Shipping dates depend on how long it takes the order to arrive in our warehouse after the tools have been manufactured.
Q: Will the available-to-ship dates be the same for all markets?
A: Yes.
Q: Am I billed at the time I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: No. However, a credit card is required to reserve the product.
Q: When will I be charged for the Stamparatus?
A: When inventory arrives in the warehouse, we will add your reservation to a shopping cart. We will then send you an email notifying you that your Stamparatus order is ready. Once you finalize payment and close your order, the system will charge your credit card.

Q: Will I be able to add other products to my Stamparatus reservation?

A: No. However, once your reservation is transferred to your shopping cart, you will then be able to add other items to your order. Important note: Please do not delete the Stamparatus from your order. We will not be able to add it back and you will lose your reservation.
Q: Will I be able to update my address and credit card information when I open my shopping bag to complete my order?
A: Yes.
Q: What if I change my mind and want to cancel my reservation?
A: You can cancel your reservation at any time. To cancel, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers PDF.
Q: Will the tool be available in the 2018–2019 annual catalog?
A: Yes. Once the annual catalog ordering period begins, you will be able to order the Stamparatus as you would any other product. Reservations will no longer be required, and there will be no limit on the number of tools you can order.
Q: Once the Stamparatus has been added to my shopping cart, how long will it stay there?
A: Indefinitely. As with all products, it will be subject to temporary interruptions in availability depending on demand.

Q: When I close my order, can I take advantage of current Stampin’ Up! promotions?

A: Yes.
Q: Can I participate in all three reservation periods?
A: Yes.
Q: How many stamp placement tools can I reserve per reservation window? A: For customers, there is a limit of 1 per reservation window.
Q: How did we come up with the name Stamparatus?
A: We landed on an innovative name by combining two words that speak to the end use of the tool as well as Stampin’ Up! branding. Stamp: To impress a pattern or mark (especially an official one) on a surface, object, or document using an engraved or inked block or die or other instrument Apparatus: The technical equipment or machinery needed for a particular activity or purpose Stamp + Apparatus = Stamparatus
