I hope you have fully enjoying Christmas with good food and family. 2018 is right on the doorstep and 2017 has been a busy year for me. I bet it has been busy for most. Me and my fiancé have renovated a three bedroom cottage and been planning our 2018 wedding!
2017 has been an amazing Stampin’ Up! year – my first as a demonstrator! I think the highlights of this year have been the surprise launch of the Stamping’ Blends, alcohol markers, and the announcement of the Stamparatus, a stamping tool similar to the Misti or Stamp platform from Tim Holz, but has more options!
I remember the 2017 Spring Catalogue being really great with the Up & Away stamp and die set which made it to the 2017-18 Annual Catalogue and the Special Reason stamp and die set which surprisingly didn’t make it. I still keep it in my collection as the dies are to.. die for.. – get it? He he he..
Then there was the Daisy delight stamp and punch set which sold out so fast after the launch of the Annual Catalogue that we had to wait over a month for it to get back in stock!
Even Stampin’ Up! had a few surprises; the launch of the Blends was so popular that the warehouse barely could keep up with the delivery times and the first Stamparatus booking window closed within 10 minutes after it had been opened! 2017 has indeed been a year full of surprises for everybody.
Stamparatus will be a part of the 2018 Annual Catalogue (launching 1st June 2018) but you are able to get hands on it before. The Stamparatus is available by reservation only at the moment (this closes 31st December). It will be shipping from the end of March. The reservation works this way: Stampin’ Up! will send you an email when the Stamparatus has arrived in the warehouse and it will then be automatically added to your stamping up shopping cart linked to your login details. It’s only then when checked out you will pay for the Stamparatus, not at the time of reservation.
On a personal note, I also had a great Stamping’ Up! year. I held my first stamping party and it was a huge success. I would also like to dedicate more time to posting inspiring projects on my blog in 2018 and I really recommend that you subscribe to my blog and so I will be able to keep you updated on projects, relevant news about new products and upcoming sales from Stampin’ Up!
Many thanks and have a Happy New Years Eve,
