The Stamparatus is a revolutionary tool and blows away the competition. Click here to find out more about the Stamparatus. Stampin' Up is using a NEW process to roll it out so as to expedite the shipping and avoid back orders (YAY), so I am going to demystify it for you :) PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS POST!

How to reserve my Stamparatus:

2. Set an alarm for 3pm Central Time (1pm Pacific, 2 pm MT and 4 pm ET)

AT 3pm Central Time:
3. Go to my online store and look for a picture (more than likely) about it and click to order.
(I will be monitoring the situation closely and keep you updated on my Facebook group "papermadeprettierclub" ...so make sure you are in that group). This link should work, but should it not, go to: papermadeprettier.stampinup.net

2. Fill out the form and enter credit card information (NOTE: the credit card will not be billed until the item ships in February) The screen will look like this...


3. At shipping time (February) You will receive an email that says complete your purchase. Add more goodies and get to you FREE item with qualifying Saleabration order! YIPPEE

4. Sit back and stalk the delivery guy. Be ready to be amazed, I can guarantee you this item breaks the mold of other Stamp positioning tools

TIPS
: Each customer can only reserve ONE Stamparatus, Happy Shoppers/ Stampin' Up Demonstrators may reserve 3 Stamparati (is it Stamparatuses or Stamparati???)

There are three opportunities to reserve a Stamparatus (see chart below)... and if you're like me you'll want to get in on the first round!!

12 days of halloween: Days 7-10 :) Halloweenpalooza!


Halloween is upon us, is it not? My 12 days of Halloween series ends today with days 7-10 . Above is an adorable card made using the Merry Café stamp set made by Latisha Dinkel, a Stampin' Up demonstrator who is in my Creating Success Training Group and made this cutie for a swap. Every Holiday calls for special drinks and Halloween is no exception! This set is versatile enough to take you into fall and Christmas! Snatch it up!





Stampin' Up Artisan designer Martha Inchley featured this cutie on the Stampin' Up blog last week. Click here for all the info. Someday, I'd love to be an Artisan designer. They are so clever! 



I got the idea for this cool cat of a treat from my bestie stamper Erica Cerwin. We like to find candy treats and make them precious. Do you love this treat featuring the Spooky Cat stamp set. I just can't get enough of that Scalloped Tag Topper punch that can be used in so many clever ways. The moon is just a circle punched and sponged with Pumpkin Pie ink.  






This last project is designed by my talented team member, Audra Jones featuring the black and white striped ribbon from the Holiday Catalog 2017. It's not just for Christmas is it? She always thinks outside the box!  No surprise she won the creative challenge last month!  


Happy Spooks and goblins and stay safe tomorrow!

12 Days of Halloween - Day 5 Spooky-licious Pizza Box


I'm getting the biggest kick out of these Stampin' Up pizza boxes. I've already gone through 5 packages of them. They are so perfect for so many things. I got these Halloween pretzels from Wal-Mart and noticed this Foil FrenzyTangerine Tango sparkly orange paper from the catalog. Voila...A halloween treat is born!  These boxes were made as a gift to my team members at our recent team gathering. I always like to end with a "parting gift" of our fun time together.  The shiny glamorous paper is from the annual catalog called Foil Frenzy and the stamp set featured is made just for the pizza boxes called The Little Things.  I also colored the web with my new Pumpkin Pie stampin' blends marker. (news this morning says they are available to customers starting Nov 1st!) The cute orange trimmed ribbon is also from the Annual Catalog. I never pass up any excuse to use my layering squares on a project :) and these go perfectly with the pizza boxes. The Spooky-licious banner is stamped and cut out with my paper snips then dimensionaled over top of the stamped image. 


The Little Things Stamp Set: #144954 $22

I adore the versatility of this set! Christmas, Valentines, Halloween and just because! These pizza bxoes were designed by Stampin' Up artists. Did you notice how they spritzed the box orange? WOW!
