Bundle Focus?

Bundle Focus is a part of the demonstrator website that features a different bundle every month.  It contains bundle information, samples & flyers to make demonstrating products easier and quicker!  Each catalog contains a number of BUNDLES that include a stamp set with either a set of dies or a punch and are discounted together by 10%.  This month the Bundle is 'LET'S SET SAIL' (#157906) on page 70 in the current Mini Catalog and on page 80 in the new Annual Catalog.  Tomorrow I will post a video to show you an easy way to use the sail boat punch and on Tuesday a Set Sail Project Sheet you will love!  Send me your samples ~ I would love for you to be my 'Guest Artist'!!

From Stampin' Up! this morning. So sorry.....



As you may know, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the relaunch of the Magnetic Cutting Plate for some time. After redesigning and rigorously testing the plate, we felt that we had a successful model for a relaunch of the product. Unfortunately, we’re now finding that with mass production, a defect in the manufacturing process is causing the plate layers to separate after use. This is not an issue we’ve experienced in the past and we are currently working with our manufacturer to determine its cause. 

After extensive additional testing (and fair amount of heartbreak), we’ve determined that the relaunched Magnetic Cutting Plate does not meet the standard of quality that we expect for our products. As a result, we have made the decision to turn this item off (effective immediately) for the foreseeable future. Additionally, we will be putting the development of our Mini Magnetic Cutting Plate on hold.

We stand by our offering of the highest quality products, so if you or your customers purchased the Magnetic Cutting Plate (item 161128), you will be issued a refund within 45 days, regardless of whether you’ve encountered issues with the product. If you ordered the Magnetic Cutting Plate but have not received it yet, you will still receive the product as well as a refund. Please do not contact Demonstrator Support for your refund, as it will be automatically issued to your original form of payment. If you paid for any orders on behalf of your customers, you are responsible for reimbursing those customers.

We share in your disappointment and frustration. Please do not try to repair or alter defective plates, as they may damage the machine. If you would like to improve the alignment of your open dies and stamps without a Magnetic Cutting Plate, you can use temporary adhesives such as washi tape, masking tape, or Post-it Notes to secure your die and paper together before running them through the machine. 

Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Butterfly Kisses Suite

IMG_8137The BUTTERFLY KISSES SUITE COLLECTION is on page 36 in the new Annual Catalog.  The suite includes the Best Butterflies Bundle (#159120), the 6" x 6" DSP (shown above) and Fun Flowers Resin Shapes.  The colorful DSP is great to use with the butterfly stamps and dies but you might be asking yourself what else can I use it for.  Here's a possibility ~

This stamp set, SUNNY SPLASH (on page 41) is a great use of the Butterfly Kisses designer series paper!  In fact, with Summer here, all the colors in the paper ~ Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Parakeet Party, Starry Sky and Fresh Freesia ~ just scream summer fun!  Enjoy the weekend!

Magnetic Plate

I have to admit that I was having a difficult time last week when I received the new MAGNETIC PLATE.  I did finally figure out what sandwich to use and I absolutely love having this plate ~ it is a great addition to the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  The plate is pictured on page 157 in the new annual catalog, it is item #5.  The order number is #161128 and it is $28.  Stampin' Up! posted a correction & I felt so much better!


The illustration accompanying the Magnetic Cutting Plate incorrectly includes plate 2. The correct sandwich should be plates 1, 5, and 3. If you’ve experienced difficulty running your sandwich through the machine, please adjust the sandwich accordingly and try again. We are currently working on updating the packaging for future orders; meanwhile, below is the correct diagram for the MAGNETIC PLATE.

Magnetic Plate information

To Die For...........

New catalog, new dies.  I don't have any of the dies that are featured in this Stampin' Up! video but you can find them in your new annual catalog beginning on page 169.  What I do have that arrived yesterday afternoon is the MAGNETIC CUTTING PLATE (#161128, $28.00) on page 157.  We used it this morning in my stamp club class and I think it is a great addition to the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  It eliminates the need for washi tape to hold the dies in place when they are being run through the machine to cut different shapes.  I'll be interested to see what you think!



Glimmer Tumblers

I ordered the new tumblers from Stampin' Up! and they arrived this afternoon so I thought I would show you what they look like 'in person'.  I think they are even prettier than I thought they might be.  They are sitting on one of my shelves in the studio so everyone can check them out.  I copied the information from the SU website about the Tahitian Tide tumbler below ~ the information on the other colors will be the same.  They are $17 and can be added to any order or purchased on my online store ~ above with the cat.  Click here for more information on Stampin' Up!'s Branded Merchandise....
