Welcome to the fifth annual Ruthless Stamping Retreat! 
I am so excited about this upcoming retreat! 

Does the thought of getting away for a weekend with other women, while you stamp and craft to get ready for the Christmas holidays, sound wonderful to you?
Then come away with Ruthless Stamping for our fifth annual
"Craft your Christmas" retreat!
You'll be crafting in a lovely setting while having your meals deliciously prepared and served for you!  You'll make new friends!  You'll go home with wonderful completed paper crafting projects that will help you celebrate Christmas while reducing the stress! 
 
Come and join me at this "Craft Your Christmas" event! There will be great door prizes for all, fun and inspiring WOW demonstrations, and lots of fun surprises!  
You are going to love our venue!  The location is great, because you'll feel like you really got away, and yet you won't spend hours on the freeway on Friday night! You'll be pleased with the meals and their presentation.  You'll be excited about the lovely and clean rooms, the exercise room, the pool, the pond, our meeting room, and the great customer service in the hotel.

All your projects will be prepared for you, so you can come and learn techniques and assemble your projects without the delay of doing your own measuring and cutting. You'll be pleased with the variety and creativity of all the projects.

As you saw in the picture above, the framelits for this bundle contain 3 nesting frames, and 
they aren't like anything we already have!  The three of them nest together, AND they have a double row of stitching... so cool! The blade cuts between the two rows, so there is stitching on both the layering piece, and the window piece! It's really so fun!

OR
Wednesday, August 15, 10 am - 1:30 pm.

New Stamparatus Reservation Window

Stamparatusbanner

Due to the extreme success of the last reservation window for the new Stamparatus, Stampin' Up! has decided to take things a bit differently when the reservation window opens up again tomorrow. 

The reservation window will remain open from December 5-30; however, during this reservation period they will take as many orders as they 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, the Stamparatuses will ship 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.
* 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 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.
 
If you haven't already seen it, take a look at the video from Stampin' Up! and see how it works:
 
 
In case you missed it earlier, here are some of the amazing things it can do:
  • Make multiples with ease

  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images

  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over

  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money

  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates

  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

 
Click the flyer below to download the information.
 
Remember, credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from Stampin' Up!'s facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.
 

Please e-mail me if you have any questions or feedback.

I'd like to share a little story with you about this. 

Some of you may be aware that there is a positioning tool already out there on the market, called a "Mysti". One of my dear and faithful customers, Beth, sent me this note when I first announced the Stampin' Up! Stamparatus:

 "Well, it is too bad that Stampin' Up! came out with the Stamparatus after I bought the "Mysti."  I have had it about a year.  It makes layering multiple cards so much easier...if I didn't have this one (already) I would definitely buy Stampin' Up!'s...the really cool thing about it is...if you didn't get enough ink on the stamp, you  can restamp because it will go in the exact same spot! So cool..."

I responded that I understood, but I suggested that she still watch the video.  It took her a few days (Thanksgiving was in there in the middle), and then she texted me:

"I finally watched the video.  I want one!  It has alot more features than the Misti.  The 2 doors, and you can move them up and down.  Stamping 4 layers on one piece.The storage slots for the magnets!  It is far superior to the Misti... I love how the doors move up and down, and that way you can use both sides.  And then you have one door on the side and on top. Really nice. And your card stock stays put!  Really good! Love it!  It is amazing! The more into the video I got, the more excited I was. "

So! Even if you already have a stamp positioner, take Beth's advice and check out the Stampin' Up!'s Stamparatus!
