I saw this tool in action this past weekend when I attended On Stage in Salt Lake City. Once I saw it, I knew I had to have one! And, I think you're going to want one too! (Keep scrolling to watch the Stampin' Up! video all about the Stamparatus.)

Here are the pieces included with the Stamparatus:

The back of the Stamparatus has a place to hold those strong magnets (be sure not to let them touch each other!).

The clear plates can be taken in and out easily.

It's here! The 2017 Holiday Catalog! What an amazing book of ideas and creative products all designed for the fall holidays - Autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Want to see inside what's inside the new Holiday Catalog?

While browsing through the Holiday Catalog, I came across these adorable card ideas from Stampin' Up! using the new Merry Cafe stamp set. There is just something about the coffee cup image I just love! This fall card just makes me feel like ordering a Pumpkin Spice latte. Yum!

 The Merry Cafe stamp set is like an accessory set designed to compliment the original Coffee Cafe stamp set from the Annual Catalog. The Coffee Cafe stamp set has a coordinating Framelit Dies set called Coffee Cups. If you'd like to quickly and easily cut out the coffee cup shapes from the set with your Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, then you're going to want to get the Coffee Cafe bundle (it saves 10% when you purchase the bundle).
