LetterPress at Stampin’ Up

Last May, I was in Green Bay, Wisconsin at Creations Galore.  One of the items I had never seen before was a LetterPress System by Epic 6.  Nichole, from Creations Galore showed me how easy it is to use and she demonstrated it in one of my videos.  You can see it demonstrated near the end of this video.

As usual, I’m the last one to get on the “Band Wagon” or to be “In The Know” on something that has been going on for quite a while.  Bad Demonstrator 😦

The last day to order from the Holiday Mini is January 3, 2011.  Phone in orders end at 6:50 p.m. MT (Mountain Standard Time) and Order Entry Express or Online Ordering ends at 11:50 p.m. MT (Mountain Standard Time).

Lots of Love LetterPress Plate

In the Holiday Mini Catalog (which ends January 3, 2011) this “Lots Of Love LetterPress Plate” is available at my Stampin’ Up! Website for $7.95.  (It is available in the Occasions Mini that will be out January 4, 2011 – shhhhh)

Works with a Big Shot, the standard cutting plates, and Stampin’ Up!’s Craft Inks.  This plate measures 8″ x 5-7/8″ x 1/4″.

I have recently ordered this plate and I will be playing with it soon as it arrives.  I’ll make sure to do a video on using the LetterPress Plate and the Big Shot.

Joyful Season LetterPress Plate

Joyful Season LetterPress Plate is in the Holiday Mini also and sells for $5.95.  This plate measures 8″ x 3″ x 1/4″ and is used with the Big Shot and the standard cutting plates.  Stampin’ Up! Craft Inks are used with the LetterPress Plates instead of the Classic Inks.

You can also use VersaMark and heat emboss the images if you don’t have Craft Ink.

There are two more LetterPress Plates available in the Holiday Mini until January 3, 2011 and they are –

Northern Trim LetterPress Plate

Northern Trim and Trick Or Treat.

The Northern Trim measures 8″ x 3″ x 1/4″ and sells for $5.95, the Trick Or Treat measures 8″ x 5-7/8″ x 1/4″ and sells for $7.95.

Trick Or Treat LetterPress Plate

I can see using the Northern Trim LetterPress Plate all year long.  It is sized just right for those of you that do 8″ x 8″ scrapbook layouts.  This Plate would work great as a border on one of your layouts, since it is only 3″ wide and 8″ long.

There is an additional LetterPress Plate coming in the Occasions Mini due out January 4, 2011.  Heart Pressed that will sell for $7.95 AND the Lots of Love LetterPress Plate will also be available in the Occasions Mini coming up.

I have some information to pass on to you about Punches, a Stamp Set, and the Stampin’ Scrub that are having Quality issues and are not available at this time.

The Ornament Punch.  I received a comment from one of my friends about the Ornament Punch not being sold any longer.  The information I have on the Ornament Punch is this.  There currently is a shipment in the Stampin’ Up! Warehouse.  Workers are having to go through each one of the punches to make sure they work.  Once they  have finished the testing and making sure they do work they will be available for sale once again.  Until then they have been taken out of the ordering system.

2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.  This punch is undergoing testing with Stampin’ Up!’ and their vendor.  There are some modifications that need to be made to this punch.  Once the testing has been finished and the modifications approved then it will go into production.  As soon as they are available for purchase, I will let you know.

Stampin’ Scrub.  There is a problem with the quality of this product from the vendor.  The Stampin’ Scrub has been taken completely out of the ordering system until the problem is solved and has been approved by the people at Stampin’ Up! that it meets their quality standards.  I will let you know when the Stampin’ Scrub will once again be available for purchase.

Occasions Mini Catalog will be available beginning January 4, 2011.  I will put it up here in my Blog on January 1, 2011 so you can get a sneak peek at it before it goes public.  Watch for it, there are a lot of fun new things in this Mini.

Pense’es Sympas Stamp Set.  In the Occasions Mini, available January 4, 2011, there is a “Thanks For Caring” stamp set.  The French version is Pense’es Sympas.  The French Version has been found to have an error in the set.  This stamp set has been pulled from the Occasions Mini ordering (although it is still listed).  The time involved in getting the stamp corrected, inspected, and approved before letting it out for sale is too long of a time period for this Promotion.  Pense’es Sympas will not be available for ordering.

Mark your calendars for Message In A Fold Club Workshops in January.  I’m working on the Newsletter now, and it will be available by January 3, 2011.  All three of the projects for January will be featured in the Newsletter.  Click on this link to request my Newsletter on January 3, 2011.  More than likely I will have it ready before then.
