happy extravaganza!

‘Tis the season for shopping!

Happy Extravanganza, everyone!  I just returned from a wonderful vacation, and it seems that while I was gone, all sorts of incredible things were happening in the Stampin’ Up! world!  No time to share new cards – I’ve just got to get the exciting news out to everyone!

First, TODAY ONLY, Stampin’ Up! is having a big sale on some wonderful stamp sets!  There are some really awesome stamps on sale.  I’ve already placed my order… but must confess that I already have quite a few of these, because they’re awesome stamps!  There are going to be deals running all week long, but this particular list is just available today, November 20th.  The list includes Garden Girl, and Good Vibes – two sets that were just meant to be colored with the new Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  (Want to know how I spent my vacation?  Practicing with my new Blends!  I love these things!)  There’s a little bit of everything in this sale, though:  you’ve got hearts and flowers, ice cream and chocolate, giant numbers and beautiful sentiments.  So much to love!

Finally, perfect placement!

The big news, though, is a new toy that is going to be the end-all, be-all, MUST HAVE product next year – the Stamparatus!  Seriously, I am beyond thrilled with how cool this thing looks!  You’ll have to be patient – the first “window” to reserve one sold out in minutes!  Yes, it’s that cool!  The next reserve window will open on December 5th, at 2:00pm Mountain Time.  I expect that this one will sell out in minutes as well, but I’ll be doing my best to be on that list.  Note that this is just a “reservation”, to be able to order the product early next year.  I know, I know… crazy system, but Stampin’ Up! is trying to make sure that they don’t have any backorders.  It feels like the longest wait ever, but we just have to realize that something this cool took time to perfect.  (Yes, I’m talking to myself here, LOL.)  Here’s a video showing 5 things you must know about this new wonder:


That’s it for today – got to get this posted before it’s old news!  Happy stamping, and happy shopping!
