Have you heard the news? Stampin' Up! is entering the precision placement positioning market! On November 16, 2017, SU! will start taking orders for the new Stamparatus tool - the must have tool for anyone who cares about precision placement. Its such an upgrade over other products already on the market, I can't wait to get my hands on it!
I was lucky to see a live demonstration of the Stamparatus at OnStage Live in Salt Lake City this past weekend - and I can tell you that it is going on my Christmas wish list for sure! One of the unique features of the Stamparatus over other precision placement tools is the fact that there are two, re-positionable plates so you have up to 4 stamping platforms, perfect for stamps with multiple layers. Imagine stamping multiples of a Watercolor Wings' butterfly without having to change out your stamps or worry about perfect placement. Another key feature of the new Stamparatus is the fact that both plates are on removable hinges so you can stamp an image, then move the plate down a hinge and restamp the image, perfectly spacing your images. This "hinge-step" technique is demonstrated in the video which you can click on below. Another thing I really like about the new Stamparatus is that there are two open sides to the tool, so you can stamp on a 12x12 scrapbook page. There are no limiting edges or borders like on other positioning tools. Plus, the two big magnets are super strong to keep your paper from moving while you stamp. At $49, this tool is a definite "must-have."
Save the date to place your order - November 16, 2017! The Stamparatus will be available to reserve on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last, so don't miss out!
For Stampin' Up! OnStage I created 50 tiny treats to hand out to new and old friends. This little elf from Festive Phrases just tickled my fancy, and coloring him with our Stampin' Write Markers was quick and satisfying. Mounted on a circle punched from the Quilted Christmas DSP stack, embellished with a bit of Quilted Christmas ribbon, a Garden Green scallop circle and paired with a chocolate treat, I was happy to hand these out.
