What is the Stamperatus?

Hello Everyone,

This week my grandchildren are back to school as Spring Break is officially over. With the boys home I was able to start work on my garden in which we will plant strawberries, tomatoes, and onions to name a few items.

This week I wanted to demonstrate how to stamp using the Stamperatus. This is a good tool for anyone to have in their crafting arsenal. This tool provides individuals with the ability to get the perfect ink coverage on a stamp, due to the fact that you can reline up the stamp to match an already stamped image. The Stamperatus also provides two plates which gives you the ability to have four surfaces to put stamps on. This will help with layering stamps.


$49.00 plus tax and shipping

The stamperatus comes with a base for stamping, two stamping plates, a foam mate, and two magnets. The magnets are very strong and can break if they are to close together. A tip for anyone with or thinking about getting the stamperatus is by covering the magnets with duck tape. I even left a little lip on mine so that I can easily reposition them.

The Craft and Carry Tote costs $29 plus tax and shipping

The Craft and Carry Tote perfectly carries your stamperatus and all of its accessories.

The stamperatus accessories pack allows an individual two more plates for an additional four surfaces to hold stamps, an extra foam pad and customized grid sheets that make stamping a breeze.

The Never-Ending Card

Hello everyone,

How is your week going? Mine is going well, my family and I were able to get Christmas decorations up and I have to say I love how the tree came out. My grandsons took over decorating the tree this year. They loved putting the ornaments on the tree and asking questions about where they came from. The baby has been really good about not pulling the tree over, although she does have her own Little Tykes Tree. With the tree, she can put up or take down her own ornaments.


It is the year-end closeout and many things are selling out so you do not want to wait to purchase anything.

The Stamparatus bag is also available for purchase and it holds ALL of the Stamparatus, its accessories, and so much more. Plus I just love the navy and turquoise together. To learn more about the Stamparatus accessories check out this video below.


Another bag that is currently available is the Craft & Carry Tote! This a shallow tote bag and holds SO much product.

The tote bag can also hold a Stampin’ Trimmer! I absolutely love mine for transporting my product. This bag is only available for demonstrators and those who are signing up in January through March or while supplies last. So if you are interested, contact me at [email protected] and we can talk about how you can get yours.

Weekly Project

An easy project that easily wows is the Never-ending card which is so easy to make.

For this week we made a 6″ x 6″ card in which we used a strip of 6″ x 12″ piece of paper to get four strips of 3″ x 6″ strips score each strip at 1 1/2″ vertical and on both horizontal ends. If you are planning on mailing this card you can use the envelope punch board to make your envelope. To learn more about the punch board and how to make envelopes check out the video below.

To learn how to make the Never-Ending card check out this prerecorded Facebook Live video! We show you how to score and fold so that you make your own Never-Ending card.

The Craft and Carry Stamparatus Bag is now available for purchase! This bag holds EVERYTHING and I mean everything! The bag holds the stamparatus as well as all of the accessories plus extras.

Because the stamparatus can hold a lot of the stamparatus accessories here is a video detailing the accessories.

This fun treat box is the perfect little gift for year round gift giving because you can easily change out the colors to match seasons and festivities. Here is a prerecorded facebook live in which we make a festive Christmas gift/treat box!
