Reservations Now Open for the Stamparatus!

TODAY begins the the 2nd and final reservation window for the Stamparatus until it becomes a regular item in the June 2018 annual catalog!

Reserve one HERE!

SU is requiring a credit card to reserve but it will not be charged until it ships.

(note: To reserve one for yourself, you will need to create a Stampin’ Up account with a login if you haven’t created one before. There will be a page to choose your demonstrator. If you want me as your demo, look for Linda Heller in NC. I will come up for Hendersonville, NC.)

If you are uncomfortable doing that online, just email me Linda@stampingschool.com and I’ll help you manually with the reservation.

Click HERE to see a PDF of what the screens will look like when you reserve your spot.

 The reservation window will remain open from December 5–30 with no inventory limits!  They will not close the window until December 30, whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!The reservation window will open at 2:00 PM (MT) on December 5.

 Beginning March 19, we will ship your Stamparatus in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19.

 One reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.

Because we are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, we will not offer a third window.

 This is the last chance to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog in June 2018

Here is a an introduction video by the home office so you can see how it works and all the features/benefits. The cost of the tool will be $49 (US) and as you can see from the video, it really helps with perfect alignment or if you are stamping multiples!

I’m one just 2 demonstrators in US to test one out early! I was asked to do a presentation with it for our ON Stage conference so I’ve been playing with it for a month now! It’s amazing what it can do and I think they will give me the ok to do some videos with it starting Dec 12th. (On Stage Fuzzy pic but it’s the only one that I know someone took!) I’ll be posting my projects when SU gives me the OK to post.

Flying Home Sneak Peek

This cute stamp set will be coming out January 3rd in the Stampin’ Up Occasions catalog.  I love birds and it was easy to color using the new Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.

I could have blended more but I made about 25 of them and was going pretty quickly!

Love the inside, too:)

Sale a Bration is coming in January, too! 

Along with the upcoming Occasions catalog, Stampin’ Up’s annual gift-with-purchase begins January 3rd – March 31st!  Order $50 from any catalog and you choose from several Level 1 items.  There is also a special Level 2 freebie with a $100 order. It’s a big, two case stamp set that is sure to be popular!

If you have ordered from me in the last 6 months, you will automatically get these from me around mid-December.  If you haven’t ordered lately or are new to me, I’d love to add you to my customer mailing list!  Email me at linda@stampingschool.com with your name and mailing address.

So what’s a Stamparatus? I think you are going to want one…

Introducing the Stamparatus: A New Way to Stamp!

It’s pretty cool and Stampin’ Up introduced everyone to the Stamparatus last week at OnStage Live in Salt Lake City, Utah. There was lots of cheering when Sara announced the introduction of this amazing tool to the Stampin’ Up! product line.  It’s not available quite yet but we can reserve one beginning Nov 16th for shipping around Feb 1st.

Here is a an introduction video by the home office so you can see how it works and all the features/benefits:

The cost of the tool will be $49 (US) and as you can see from the video, it really helps with perfect alignment or if you are stamping multiples!

There will be 3 reservation periods for those that want it early.  If you don’t want to reserve it now, it will be in the Annual Catalog coming out in June 2018!

November 16–30, 2017 – Shipping Approx. February 1, 2018 SOLD OUT

December 5–30, 2017 – Shipping Approx. March 19, 2018

January 15–30, 2018 -Shipping Approx. April 15, 2018

To be ready to reserve one for yourself, you will need to create a Stampin’ Up account with a login if you haven’t created one before.  There will be a page to choose your demonstrator. If you want me as your demo, look for Linda Heller in NC.  I will come up for Hendersonville, NC.   (FYI, there are 2 linda hellers, isn’t that something?!)

To set up a SU account yourself online click here: https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/MyAccount.aspx

If you are uncomfortable doing that online, just email me Linda@stampingschool.com  and I’ll help you manually with the reservation.

On the 16th, I’ll post again with a link to reserve one if you want it!   SU is requiring a credit card to reserve but it will not be charged until it ships. (see Q&A below)

Click HERE to see a PDF of what the screens will look like when you reserve your spot.  I know this is VERY different than our usual product releases but SU is trying to avoid back orders for a soon to be popular tool!

I’m one just a few demonstrators to test one out early!  I was asked to do a presentation with it for our ON Stage conference so I’ve been playing with it for a month now!  It’s amazing what it can do and I think they will give me the ok to do some videos with it starting Dec 12th.  (On Stage Fuzzy pic but it’s the only one that I know someone took!)  I’ll be posting my projects as soon as I can of course!

Here’s a little Q&A that might be helpful:

How do I reserve my Stamparatus during one of the reserve periods?

A: Normally you order Stampin’ Up! products through the online store; in this case, you will click the RESERVE link on the Stamparatus page which will take you to the reservation page.

Q What if I do not have a Stampin’ Up! customer account?

 A: To reserve a Stamparatus, you must have a customer account. To create one, click Create Account on the online store.  OR just let me know you want one and with what credit card you want to hold it on.  It will not take the money or hold the money from your account.  It’s like a hotel reservation.  You won’t be charged til it ships.

 Q: Why does it take so long for the Stamparatus to ship? 

A:We will place an order with the manufacturer based on how many reservations are made during any given reservation window. Shipping dates depend on how long it takes the order to arrive in our warehouse after the tools have been manufactured.

 Q: Am I billed at the time I reserve my Stamparatus?

A: No. However, a credit card is required to reserve the product.

Q: When will I be charged for the Stamparatus?

A: When inventory arrives in the warehouse, we will add your reservation to a shopping cart. We will then send you an email notifying you that your Stamparatus order is ready. Once you finalize payment and close your order, the system will charge your credit card.

 Q: Will I be able to add other products to my Stamparatus reservation?

A: No. However, once your reservation is transferred to your shopping cart, you will then be able to add

other items to your order. Important note: Please do not delete the Stamparatus from your order. We will not be able to add it back and you will lose your reservation.

Q:Will I be able to update my address and credit card information when I open my shopping bag to complete my order?

A:Yes.

 Q:What if I change my mind and want to cancel my reservation?

A:You can cancel your reservation at any time. To cancel, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers PDF.

Q:Will the tool be available in the 2018–2019 annual catalog?

A:Yes. Once the annual catalog ordering period begins, you will be able to order the Stamparatus as you would any other product. Reservations will no longer be required, and there will be no limit on the number of tools you can order.

 Q: Once the Stamparatus has been added to my shopping cart, how long will it stay there?

A:Indefinitely. As with all products, it will be subject to temporary interruptions in availability depending on demand.

Q:When I close my order, can I take advantage of current Stampin’ Up! promotions?

A:Yes.

 Q:Can I participate in all three reservation periods?

A:Yes.

 Q:How many stamp placement tools can I reserve per reservation window?

A:For customers, there is a limit of 1 per reservation window.

 Ok that’s the BIG announcement today – more tomorrow!

Linda
