Christmas Crush Day 24

This is it.  The last card for my series Christmas Crush 2017.  I hope you all enjoyed, had fun and got inspired.  Now you can get shopping and creating.  As always, I love the comments, the thumbs up and the wonderful support you have given me and I thank you so much.  I have to say that this series was totally unplanned and a little chaotic as you know I started the series right after I had settled back into the apartment after the renovation from the flood.  Things were still a mess then, but I sure got a work out of my new crafting corner!  It’s almost presentable and I may do a little Facebook live to share whats changed.  I am just waiting on getting the new internet provider installed. Perhaps I will see you there?  So, I am really glad you stayed with me through the whole thing, I do hope that you had as much fun as  I did.

Here’s my card for today.

5 Hour Reminder

Hello my friends.  This is your 5 hour reminder that the window for the Stamparatus will open and you can reserve yours today.  Here is some additional information I thought you would appreciate.

  • Magnet storage areas
  • Retail Price–$65.00 CAD

So we all have to get 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 back orders 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 (talk about a good time to join my team) and 1 tool per customer per reservation window.
  • 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.

Here are the reservation windows:

The first reservation window is in 5 hours!!!  I would strongly suggest you get in on the first reservation window so you can be the first to get in line for this product.
You will not be billed for the tool until the item arrives and ships from Stampin’ Up! warehouse but November 16th is the day to reserve your tool!

There is a maximum reservation number (since the manufacturer can only produce so many in one time frame) so I would not wait to reserve since the reservation window may close early if the maximum number has been reached.

There will be a link on my online store where you can reserve your stamparatus.  You must have a Stampin’ Up! online account and make sure to have me as your demonstrator in your profile.

 

Q & A for the Stamparatus

Q: How do I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: Normally you order Stampin’ Up! products through the online store or emailing me; 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 picture below.

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 at the online store.  Here is the link.

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 before your credit card has been charged. To cancel please contact me so I can give you more details

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: 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.  Demonstrators can order 3 and get their 20% (or more) discount.  Yes!  It makes sense to Join my team! 

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

Christmas Crush Day 21

Happy Monday to you all.  I hope you started thinking about making your Christmas cards now.  It’s not too far away and we have loads to do.  Today’s project is a super cute one and I have to say that it is my very first “Z” fold card.  No, it’s not a zombie card, although that is what I thought when I first heard of the term.  Z is for the shape of the card.  Traditionally, “Z” folds would be constructed by using a 12″ x 12″ inch paper, cut in half and 6″ and then scored at 4″ and 8″.  However, I wanted to use my go to white card base in the thick version and I do not have a 12″ x 12″ in that particular card stock weight or size so I improvised with what I had.  I am super proud of this card and yes I did make 2.  The colouring took the longest but in general I would say that it took me about a half an hour total.  So I am sure you all would be able to whip it together in way less time.  🙂  Check out this amazing creation.

Christmas Crush Day 20

Well TGIF I say.  It’s been a long week and I get a 3 day weekend.  I decided to take the day off tomorrow to observe Remembrance Day.  We have ceremonies in the morning so it I feel it will be nice to pay my respects to those who have protected me in my amazing country.  Of course we all will remember and reflect of the sacrifices that were made.  I say to anyone who is in service now and who has made sacrifices for me, Thank you.  I am humbled.

Today’s project would be an excellent one to give to someone special.  A fancy lidded box with a little tip from the Amazing Connie Stewart who thought of an amazing simple tool to help with lidded boxes.  Check out the video if you want to know more.

Christmas Crush Day 19

Hello and welcome to a more involved card today.  I love sponging and this card really gave me the opportunity to show that.  I won’t chat here too much because the video is a bit longer than usual so I will let you enjoy the show.

Christmas Crush Day 18

Happy Wednesday everyone.  I have a lovely little cluster/monochromatic card for you today.  I loved how this one turned out.  I really do like to cluster elements when I can.  I think it’s a modern way of creating a card.  Not everything has to be symmetrical.  I say that and next week I’ll probably fuss with something so that it’s all straight and perfect.  I guess us card makers go through stages.  One day it’s clusters and the next day it’s a cute scene…you all know what I am talking about.  Anyway, I suppose I should show you the card.  Hope you like it and that it gives you some inspiration.
