Second Sneak Peek

12.01.17_TH-CATALOGPHOTOS_OCCASIONSHello,Crafters. I hope you've had a wonderful Christmas. 

It's time for me to put the chocolates away, and get back to sensible eating before I do some real damage to my waistline!

We went to Church on Christmas  morning, and when we arrived back home it was all hands to the pump getting the dinner on the go, and drinks all round. 

12.01.17_L3_PETAL_PALETTEWhile we were waiting for the food to cook, we opened our presents. 

There were fourteen of us who sat down for dinner, and it brought back many happy memories of years gone by! 

After dinner, while we were still clearing up, six more members of the family arrived.

12.05.17_L4_STAMPARATUS_NAThere should have been another four adults and five children, but three of them were in bed with flu! 

We spent the rest of the afternoon chatting, playing games, and eating chocolates - a really good old-fashioned Christmas!

This morning I uploaded my second Sneak Peek video, showing the rest of the new products I pre-ordered - just seven days before Sale-a-bration begins!

StamparatusTwo days before Christmas I posted copies of the new catalogues to all my customers and - hopefully - they'll receive them today, to coincide with the video! 

The new Spring/Summer Catalogue goes live on 3rd January 2018, which is the same day that sees the start of Sale-a-bration, which goes on until 31st March 2017.

If you don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and would like to receive the catalogues, please email me at

11.16.17_TH-SHAREABLE1_STAMPARATUS_SPEUENGThe Pre-Order for the Stamparatus CLOSES on 31st December 2017 at 7:50 CET/6:50 a.m. GMT 

PLEASE NOTE THE EXACT TIME PRE-ORDER ENDS: 7:50 CET/6:50 am GMT you miss the pre-order, you'll have to wait until 1st June 2018 for the next opportuniy to buy one! Between now and 1st June, there will be lots of videos on YouTube - the first ones are up there already - which will give you a chance to see what this new tool will do, and whether you think it's the kind of tool that you'd enjoy using!

You are NOT required to pay when you Pre-Order.

Stampin' Up! will notify you by email when they are ready to ship your Stamparatus, which will be on or around 19th March 2017, and you will be asked to confirm your order and pay, or to cancel your order.

This gives you time to change your mind before you have to pay. 

Having seen this tool in action, I'm totally convinced it's going to be a huge success, and at just £44.00, isn't going to break the bank! in case you're not sure of the process of pre-ordering, I have just uploaded a short video showing you step by step instructions. 

Finally, what is the Stamparatus:-


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:
  • Compatible with red rubber and photopolymer stamps
  • 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
  • Rulers on 2 sides for quick measuring
  • 2 open sides so you can use larger paper
  • Multiple hinges for more placement options
  • 2 reversible plates for 4 sides to work with
  • 1 foam mat for use with photopolymer
  • 1 base with grid
  • Magnet storage areas
That's it for today. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. lease leave a message in the comments below or email me at

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
