Thank you everyone for participating in the November Giveaway challenges - I have posted many opportunities to be entered to win this great Christmas Merry Patterns stamp set - and so many of you had your names in ... lots of times!

And I am happy to announce the winner is...
Danielle MacIntosh!!!

The December giveaway is a bit different this month and you will find out in the mail - so stay tuned!
The hint is - everyone is a winner!


The results are in! The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes, which provided Stampin’ Up! with some very important information: There is a lot of LOVE for this new stamping tool! They couldn’t be more thrilled; in fact, the response was so amazing that they’ve decided to make some important adjustments to the reservation process.

As was previously announced, the second reservation window will remain open from December 5–30; however, during this reservation period we will take as many orders as we receive (yay!) and not close the window until December 30. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!

Please note the following changes:
Beginning March 19, they will ship Stamparatuses 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 (as was previously announced).

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 for you and your customers to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

The reservation window will open at 2:00 PM (MT) on December 5.

Check out the video below for tips on how to reserve yours - and if you have any questions please feel free to email me.
