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

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

The results are in! The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes, which provided us with some very important information: You LOVE this new stamping tool! We couldn’t be more thrilled; in fact, your response was so amazing that we’ve decided to make some important adjustments to the reservation process.
 
As was previously announced, the second reservation window will remain open from December 5–30; however, during this reservation period we will take as many orders as we receive (yay!) and not close the window until December 30. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!
 
Please note the following changes:
  • Beginning March 19, we will ship Stamparatuses in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
  • In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows: one reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.
  • Because we are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, we will not offer a third window. This is the last chance for you and your customers to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.
 
Please note what has not changed:
  • If you reserved more than one stamping tool during the first reservation period, that number will not change; you will still receive the same number you reserved.
  • If you reserved one or more stamping tool(s) during the first reservation period, you may still order during the second window.
  • The reservation window will open at 2:00 PM (MT) on December 5

We can’t wait for you to get your hands on your very own Stamparatus and look forward to seeing the projects you’ll make with this incredible stamping tool. Look for additional details on the Stamparatus product page as the second reservation window approaches.
 
Sincerely,
 
Stampin’ Up!

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.

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

Stampin’ Up! Crafting Forever Thank You card

Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever Thank You card

This Stampin’ Up! Crafting Forever Thank You card was super Quick & Easy!  I send a ton of thank you cards every month and quick, easy, looks pretty fits my needs perfectly…lol…  I love the crafting forever stamp set for it’s versatility and it’s obvious crafty appeal.

To make this card simply start with an A2 card base in Night of Navy.  Cut landscape style, 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold the card in half at 5.5″.  Layer a Very Vanilla card stock cut at 5.25″ x 4″ stamped with the pens in Night of Navy ink.  Remember!  Stamp the Very Vanilla envelope with the pens too!  The Thank You sentiment is from the One Big Meaning stamp set.  Finish off the card with the Night of Navy crinkled seam binding ribbon wrapped around the front and finished off with a bow!

Here is the video tutorial:

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.
