Stampin’ Up! Fruit Basket Bundle Sneak Peek

I am taking a short break from Christmas card making to share some projects made with the Fruit Basket Bundle from the 2018 Occasions Catalog today.  The first project was a made during On Stage in November and was created by my up-line, Amy Koenders.  It was so much fun watching Amy demonstrate these adorable tags, and then we got to make them ourselves.

The Fruit Basket Bundle includes 25 Photopolymer stamps and 4 small individual fruit punches.  Take a look:

I love how the stamp is just a little larger than the actual punch, which makes it much easier to punch out your pear, melon, pineapple or strawberry.  I decided to use one of my tags on a card front.  What do you think?

There is an added surprise, see the card base and envelope?  They are part of a set of 16 preprinted card bases and envelopes you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration, and they coordinate with the Tutti Frutti Suite.  There are 4 each of Lemon Lime Twist, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party.  Fun, fun, fun!  Ordering begins on January 3rd for the Fruit Basket Bundle, unless you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, and you can order it now.  Isn’t that a great incentive to join?  I’d love to have you join my team and share in all of the excitement of early ordering.  (That is just one of the perks)  Contact me for more information, and make sure you check out my Join My Team Page.

Important Update on the Stamparatus!


The results are in! The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes, which provided us with some very important information: You LOVE this new stamping tool! We couldn’t be more thrilled; in fact, your response was so amazing that we’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 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, we 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).
  • In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows:
    • One reservation per customer.
    • 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 to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

Please note what has not changed:

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

We can’t wait for you to get your hands on your very own Stamparatus and look forward to seeing the projects you’ll make with this incredible stamping tool.
