Stampin Up, Share What You Love, Card and Gift ideas designed by Demo Lynn Tague at #BeyondBeachesandBlessings

With retiring products disappearing quickly and the new 2018-2019 30th Anniversary Annual Catalog launch just under two months away, now is this time to think about sharing what you love! I LOVE sharing homemade cards and paper-crafted gifts with others as I know it brings JOY to their life at that moment. Think about the many ways you can share what you love with others. Did you know that sharing what you love with others makes a difference in the lives of others?

Beginning May 1, you have the opportunity to purchase new products from the new 30th Anniversary Annual Catalog from the beautiful Share What You Love Suite through an early release special May 1 through May 31. You can purchase products which are available in bundles, one bundle includes an exclusive “Statement of My Heart” stamp set that is not available in the new Annual Catalog. Check out this video for all the details on this suite of products and to see these beautiful new products coming your way early. You’ll even get a sneak peek at the five bright and bold new 2018-2010 InColors!  You don’t want to miss this video!

Wondering What’s Retiring

This past weekend, I took advantage of the opportunity to attend one of many Local OnStage events along with over 8,000 other demonstrators around the world. Those attending each event were able to view and receive the upcoming new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog which launches on June 1. I attended the OnStage event in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, taking time to enjoy some of the great activities Milwaukee has to offer while there like Lakefront Brewery and Tour, Miller Park where we watched the Brewers take on the Cubs (sorry Cubby fans), Milwaukee Brat House, and Mader’s German Restaurant which celebrates 116 years of serving its customers this year.

With the introduction of a new catalog comes the retiring of many of the existing Occasions and Annual Catalog products, as well as the retirement of the 2016-2018 InColors.  Stampin’ Up! announced a Color Revamp with the new Annual Catalog, so 13 existing colors (in ink, paper, markers) will also be retiring in addition to the 5 retiring InColors.  Below are the Last Chance lists of retiring products through May 31. However, many of these products will sell out much sooner as all retiring products are available only while supplies last. So, don’t delay, order your favorite retiring products today!

Click HERE to view and print the list of the retiring Occasions catalog products.

New Stamp Positioning Tool

Stampin Up, Stamparatus, Card and Gift ideas designed by Demo Lynn Tague at #BeyondBeachesandBlessings

It’s BIG NEWS when something breaks the mold and changes everything! Stampin’ Up’s new Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool) will change the way you and I stamp, and before long, we will wonder how we crafted without it!

Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it! I personally observed demonstrations of this new tool during OnStage Live in Salt Lake City, and you can trust me when I say, it is the most amazing stamp positioning tool available.

  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and re-stamp—no need to start over with a new sheet of paper
  • 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 – Hinge Step stamping technique – this is simply amazing!

Want more product details? Take a look at this list of product details and check out the photos at the bottom of this post. 

  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s clear mount red rubber and photopolymer stamps
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
  • Rulers and grid-lines for quick measuring
  • 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper
  • 2 reversible plates providing you with a total of 4 surfaces to work with
  • 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
  • Magnet storage areas
  • Retail Price–$49.00 USD

Check out this video from Stampin’ Up to learn the 5 amazing things you need to know about Stamparatus!

YOU have to get one, so how do YOU get in line? With the launch of this fantastic tool, Stampin’ Up is trying something different: testing a new product reservation system. It acts like a true preorder – you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Customers and Demonstrators alike can place reservations and receive their product at the same time. So, you and I can experience our new Stamparatus tools together at the same time. This process will allow us to get the product to YOU as quickly as possible while avoiding back-orders and efficiently managing inventory.

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:

  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • 1 tool per customer per reservation window.
  • You may participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility.
  • When you close your order, be sure to verify your credit card and shipping information is correct.

When are the reservation windows? As I mentioned earlier, there will be three windows, they are as follows.

  • November 16 – 30, 2017, with shipment available approximately February 1, 2018
  • December 5 – 30, 2017, with shipment available approximately March 19, 2018
  • January 15 – 30, 2018, with shipment available approximately April 15, 2018

Why order from me? Once you’ve placed your reservation, I’ll help you track when your Stamparatus will arrive and I’ll send you a special handmade card with instructions on how to replicate the card using your brand new Stamparatus. This special “thank you” gift from me will arrive just in time for the delivery of your new Stamparatus. You won’t want to miss out on this wonderful opportunity.

So, don’t delay, reserve your personal Stamparatus beginning with the first reservation window which opens on Thursday, November 16, at 3 PM (Central Time). And, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Are YOU ready to reserve your Stamparatus?

  1. Click here beginning November 16 to reserve your Stamparatus
  2. If you do not have an online account with me you will need to do that first. Here’s the information you need…
  • Lynn Tague
  • Demo ID 2167254
  • West Des Moines, IA 50265

May you always have a seashell in your pocket and sand between your toes.
