Starting Monday – Stampin’ Up! Canada’s Online Extravaganza sale is BACK! November 20 – 26th – save 10-50% on selected Stampin’ Up! products! It starts off with a bang – selected stamp sets are on sale for 20% off on Monday ONLY, and ends with a flash – a flash sale (more info to follow) on November 27th.
Here’s the list of stamps on sale Monday – from 12AM to 1159PM Mountain Time:
You can download the full list of sales items here. A lot of the stamp sets on sale on Monday coordinate with other items on sale the full week – for example, Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlits which coordinates with the Bloomin’ Love set; plus Watercolour Pencils are on sale which are great for sets like Garden Girl.
Any Paper Pumpkin Items on the sale list are while supplies last. Your best bet to make sure you don’t miss out on anything is to place your order online at the YamStamps Online Stampin’ Up! Canada Store. If you have any questions or need assistance placing your order, please feel free to contact me. I will have an order or two going in this week, but if you’re going for a limited supply item (e.g. Paper Pumpkin kit or refill) just know that I can’t guarantee it will be available until the order is finalized.
Stampin’ Up! is introducing the Stamparatus – a new stamp positioner/tool! Demonstrators at last week’s On Stage event got their first look at this new tool in action – and there was a lot of “oohing and ahhing” happening in the crowd! See the animated gif above for a quick peek at how it works – or watch the video on the YamStamps Facebook page. You can get your Stamparatus by reserving one starting TODAY – Thursday 16 November, at 2pm Mountain Time (that’s 4 pm Eastern, 1 pm Pacific).
Stampin’ Up! is trying a reservation system for this launch. There will be a number of periods that you can reserve a Stamparatus. Each window has a set number of Stamparatii (that’s the plural, right?!), so once that number’s exhausted, you won’t be able to reserve one until the next reservation window.

How to reserve
1) Have an online account set up for the YamStamps Online Stampin’ Up! Canada Store – you can do this ahead of time so that you’ll be ready to go right off the mark! In the top left corner of the page, you’ll see a link to create your account if you don’t already have one.
2) When the time hits, visit the store, and there will be a link to the Stamparatus Reservation Page. Complete the page (you’ll need to enter your credit card payment information). Your credit card will NOT be charged until your Stamparatus is shipped, but you will need one to complete your reservation. If the supply is exhausted, you will not be able to reserve one, and will get a message indicating that there are no products available to reserve. Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen to you!!
3) When your Stamparatus is ready to ship, you will get an email, and you can go into your online store account where it will be in your shopping bag. At that time, you can add other items to your bag (you’ll qualify for a free Sale-a-Bration item if you get in on the first two reservation windows). You can also update your address & credit card information before you finalize your order. Once the Stamparatus is in your shopping bag, DO NOT DELETE IT – we are being told that if that should happen, Stampin’ Up! can’t add it back to your bag and you will lose your reservation 🙁
This is going to be a HOT item, so be ready to reserve! Limited to one per customer….but if you miss out on the first reservation window, there’s 2 more chances….and this tool WILL be available in the upcoming 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue, so don’t despair! Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Stampin’ Up!’s set This Little Piggy (available in wood mount or clear mount) is such a fun set. I used it to create some fun swap cards a while back. When Pigs Fly….we should celebrate! I love this sentiment in particular. The image itself is watercoloured, using the aquapainter and refills. Marina Mist is the sky, and Blushing Bride (if I recall correctly….) was used for the pig. I watercoloured on Shimmery White cardstock, and the clouds are cut from the same cardstock. It has a beautiful, subtle shimmery sparkle to it. To boost the shimmer a bit more, I used the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the wings.
I love that watercolouring doesn’t have to be all smooth and washed out if you don’t want it to be! I filmed a tutorial on how to get the variegated wash background, and I’ll be sharing it in the Online Watercolouring Class (yes, I know, it’s still in final stages of production…life keeps getting in the way! LOL). (I know, sometimes it feels like this online class will be live when pigs fly….if you want to be notified when the class is available for registration, click here to join the list)
The clouds are die cut using the Up & Away Thinlit dies. A cheater trick of mine is to put the sentiment on a die cut or punch out, so if you mess it up, you only have to redo one portion, not the entire card….or if you happen to mess up stamping on the card itself, a die cut or punch out can cover that up! Trust me, after decades of paper crafting, I know how to cover up mistakes….LOL. What’s that sentiment? A mistake is just an opportunity for an embellishment?! When pigs fly…I will design a card without making a “forced creative detour”….hahaha!
I’ll be pulling out the Wink of Stella Brush Pens next week for the Christmas Card Class. Nothing like a little shimmer and shine to make your Christmas cards more special! You can still register to come to class and make 4 different Christmas cards. You’ll get to use the Wink of Stella Brush to try it out…and if you like it, you can always order one for yourself! Don’t forget that if you place a $60 order you’ll receive a coupon code for $6 to spend in August! Plus….if you made a purchase at my Open House / Retired Product Sale in June, you’ll have received the email with a coupon amount to use exclusively with me this summer!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need to register for an upcoming class.
