Stampin' Up! is excited to announce that one of our most exciting new products, Stampin' Blendabilities Markers!
These exclusive alcohol-based marker sets, come in a 3-pack of light, medium and dark shades (of the same color ), and provide your projects a more saturated look with blended colors. We recommend using Stampin' Up! Whisper White Cardstock with your Stampin' Up! Blendabilities, but any one of our cardstocks would work just as well. And since traditional alcohol markers require a bit of training and aren't as accessible, we've developed videos to ensure that Blendabilities are easy-to-use for everyone! (COMING AFTER JUNE 1)
What Sets Them Apart:
Blendabilites are ALCOHOL MARKERS and this means the ink inside the marker is suspended in alcohol instead of water. The ink goes on so smoothly you won't end up with those streaky lines in your projects!
The intense vibrant color is colorfast so it won't fade, and they are not water soluable so they won't run or fade in water. But they are alcohol soluable so you will defininetly need the Momento Black Ink Pad to stamp your image before using the Blendabilities to color it in with.
I am going to continue to post more about these fabulous markers in future posts but I wanted to give you a heads up. They are available to order on June 1st from my Stampin Up Store Website.
My Favorite part about Blendabilities? They come in our EXCLUSIVE Stampin Up! Colors!

I am VERY excited about this!
A: You’ll see Card Collections, Accessory Packs, Albums, Photo Pocket Pages, tools, other accessories, and Stamps, of course!
A: Nope! We have worked with Stampin’ Up! to design all new products that are super fun and a perfect match to their existing color lines which will make coordination a breeze. Some of the Photo Pocket Page designs are the same and some are different than what we currently offer.
A: Stampin’ Up! has a worldwide demonstrator base who understand their products better than anyone. Many offer in-home workshops, online parties, and local events (depending on the demonstrator and the area). The personal expertise and service make purchasing through a demonstrator a wonderful and unique experience and can also form great friendships!
A: Visit the Stampin’ Up! website to learn more.
A: Once you’ve decided that this is a great opportunity for you, you can sign up through their website HERE.
A: Most Project Life by Stampin’ Up! products will be sold in Card Collections of 100 cards with 4×6, 4×4, and 3×4 card sizes included. Each card will be printed front + back as all of our current products, but you will not receive duplicates of any cards in the set. Oh – And we’re doing square (not rounded) corners on all of our cards with Stampin’ Up! Yes, there’s an awesome corner rounder punch included in the product line-up if that floats your boat. There will also be Accessory Packs available (sold separately) that will contain a variety of accessories to complement the Card Collection.
A: Products will be available for customers to order beginning May 1st (just 15 days from the time of this announcement)! Watch for product images and more information coming soon.
A: They sure will! Stay tuned for more information on when those will become available.
WOW! I am really excited!
We are so so so excited to let you know we’ve partnered with the amazing Becky Higgins to bring you the real deal—authentic Project Life products, now in exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors and designs. If you’ve somehow missed the Project Life craze and are wondering what it’s all about, we’ll fill you in: it’s a super simple, totally affordable way to get your photos into albums: you just slip your photos into Photo Pocket Pages and add designed cards. It’s a back-to-basics approach to documenting your life. In a nutshell, it’s all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.
You’ll be able to order a selection of Project Life products starting May 1! And with the launch of our new annual catalog on June 2, you’ll be able to buy from our complete line of Project Life products.
Can’t wait that long? Stampin’ Up! demonstrators will be able to order the limited selection starting April 21. So if you’re a demonstrator make sure to check the demonstrator website that day; if you’re not a demonstrator, sign up and you can order the products early too!
Here are the items you’ll be able to purchase on May 1:
I have had some questions by email and I thought I would share the answers here-
FAQ about becoming a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator
Commonly asked questions about becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator
How much do I have to sell to stay active as a demonstrator? You must sell $300 per quarter (Jan-Mar, April-June, July-Sept., & Oct – Dec) to stay current. However, the quarter you sign up in is waived. For example, if you sign up in January, you have until June 30th to fulfill the $300 in sales which is a minimum of 5 full months plus whatever would be left of January after you join. After that you have until the end of each subsequent quarter.
What happens if I don’t sell $300 in a quarter? If you do not sell $300 in a quarter, you will be automatically placed into “pending” status and SU gives you 30 days to catch up. Let’s say you end the quarter on June 30 having submitted $250 so you are short $50. You would simply have to submit that $50 in sales in July to stay active. Nothing complicated or punitive. You just catch up during that sort of “grace period.”
How long does Stampin’ Up! require me to stay as a demonstrator? Stampin’ Up! imposes no time limit (short or long) on your role as a demonstrator. You can buy the Starter Kit to get the huge discount off of the items and if you choose to not stick with it, SU imposes no penalty or fee. Becoming a member of my team is totally without any consequence to just give it a try.
How much of a discount do I get for merchandise for myself? SU! offers us a 20% discount on everything. If a retail item is $19.95, for example, you collect $19.95 (+ tax and shipping) from your customer but you pay SU! $15.96 (+ tax and shipping on the $19.95) for that item and you keep the difference as “Instant Income.”
A second way to earn is off volume. If your sales, in one month, reach $400 or more, you begin to earn a volume rebate AND you then qualify to earn a rebate off your own downline. The percentage of rebate at $400 in your own sales is 5% and goes up to 20% when your sales are $5,000 or more in one month. Additionally, you’d earn a rebate on your downline’s sales too (you earn off those who sign up under you.)
How do I pay for the orders I place personally for myself or a customer? You use the online ordering system to place orders for both yourself and for customers. Customers pay you personally by cash, check (written out to you), credit card, Pay Pal or…. and you pay SU with their money or your personal credit card or checking account. (You may use the Customer's credit card information in our ordering system and then SU directly deposits your income into the bank account you added when you signed up)
How else can a customer order? Customers may order directly from you on your Demonstrator Business Web Services website if you choose to get one. The system processes orders 24/7. You can be earning income in your sleep!
How much does the Starter Kit cost? The Starter Kit is $99 + tax (ships free) and you build it with up to $125 of any product of your choice (you cannot go over $125 by even a penny).
When does Stampin’ Up! have incentives to sign up? SU! advises us of all new promotions on an ongoing basis. They mix it up so we honestly never know what’s coming up too far in advance. My philosophy is that the kit is such a steal and zero risk so why wait? Join the demonstrator “club” now and start enjoying the perks and discounts!
When is the best time to sign up? Honestly, there is always something going on to inspire sales in new customers so any time is a good time to sign up. Note, though, that our biggest sale of the year begins in January so getting in on this now can be fun.
Can I be your downline even if we don’t live close to one another? Yes! You can live anywhere and be in my SU family!
Support from Stampin' Up!
We love our demonstrators and it shows through our demonstrator support materials. Workshop ideas and audio and video trainings on all kinds of topics are available at your fingertips on our demonstrator website. Plus, you'll receive our Bi- monthly magazine just for demonstrators, which is full of informative tips and beautiful samples. (NO COMPANY gives better support than Stampin Up- I was in a LOT of companies before I joined!)
Is there anything else I should know? The number one thing I emphasize is that aside from all the above, it is quite taboo to sell current items on eBay. If you were to do so, you’d risk being terminated immediately. SU is very strict about this! And, you cannot sell Stampin Up and directly competing companies products. ( Like Close to My Heart or Creative Memories) Stampin Up! Current products cannot be sold in a storefront (booth at a craft fair) etc...
Terms to know:
Demonstrator: the only people authorized to sell new Stampin’ Up! (we are NOT called “consultants”)
Upline: the person you sign up under (what I am to you)
Downline: Your relationship to the person you signed up under (what you are to me)
SU: Stampin’ Up!
DS: Demonstrator Support (by email or phone – very helpful!)
Check out the KIT information and Video HERE
I joined SU over 10 years ago (just for the discount) and 3 months after starting I was asked to teach friends and neighbors what I was learning from my uplines and so my career began! I am now a Manager and I can do as much or as little as I choose!
We have no sales quotas, other than our quarterly minimum of $300.00 (before shipping and tax) and frankly I spend about $100.00 per month for myself for personal projects. I prefer the QUALITY products that SU has compared to anything else on the market. I prefer to buy from myself to remain active in SU and I hold 2 monthly card classes and 2 monthly scrapbooking classes. We are NOT required to hold ANY classes at all! I do it because I love it ( I am a people person and I love sharing!)
Anyone within the US boundaries (Includuding Puerto Rico and American Samoa) can join my team. I love that I can do with this business what works for me financially and my life and the company supports me in my decision! They have never and will NEVER (nor will I) put pressure on anyone to sell more, do more or be more.
Don't Delay, join my team today.

Enjoy learning about our framelits! The finished card is beautiful!
Framelits work best with out magnetic platform for the Big shot. All items can be found online HERE or in our current catalogs! I don't know what I would do without our framelits, I use them in nearly all my projects!

I have made my Mini Memories kit Album and I will be sharing 20 photos of it after this fun video!
This has been one of my MOST FAVORITE kits that Stampin Up! Has come out with in the 10 years I have been a demonstrator! It's not only cute, but it's EASY to put together and I love the color scheme!
Eventually I will be adding photos to this album and when I do I will add more embellishments and journaling to this book, but I wanted to get it made up as a sample for my upcoming Scrapbook Crop Vendor booth! I plan to put the photos from Paducah Quilt show in April in this album!
It was fun to create this mini album kit and I added a couple of the Watercolor Wonder Deisgner Notecards from the Occasions Mini and a couple of cardstock pages in colors that coordinated with the kit to create some fun different sized pages! I also added from my "stash" the lace and roses shown on the front cover plus the pearls, ribbon, and other items not in the kit. Use anything you have on hand that coordinates!
I will make a comment about the pages below each photo- I hope you like my book and it inspires you to create one of your own using this fun and beautiful EASY kit!
Remember- click on each photo to see it full size!
For the Front cover, I sponged Cantelope Ink over the PRE-embossed flowers to pop them out then I added the lace from my sewing stash to vintage it up a little and I used the ink and sponged the roses we sell and added them with sticky strip. I can't tell you HOW much I love this book kit! The pearls in the flowers are adhered with our mini glue dots
Here is a top view of the finished book. The colors of this kit are just so gorgeous!
For the inside left cover, I used Cantelope cardstock to cover the lace and make a place for journaling or a photo or both. The right page is made from kit elements and I added the tiniest pearls we sell in all the flower centers.
The next pages are made using more elements from the kit- except the note card in the center- it's from the Watercolor note cards in the new Occasions 2014 catalog! So fun to add different elements to a book!
This page is gold foil stripes and so ELEGANT! I didn't add any bling as I want to put the picture on the page first and then add afterwards.
This fun paper is golden pears- add a doily from the kit and a label and button and you have a fast gorgeous page!
I like adding a few tabs on "some" of the pages to help turn/flip through the book easier as well as to add texture and bling! I never add them to everypage it's just to "much"
The brown tulip paper is a paper bag, it's just fun to add it as a page and I used Cantelope Cardstock to create a page/tag to go inside of it for more photos and journaling- just use your favorite edge punch on it to add even more texture and bling!
One of my favorite elements in this kit are the ready to use doilies!
The white page on the right is an envelope, I added the gold clip heart on the lip of the envelope so that it opens easier and adds some bling. I will add photos, journaling and I plan to use our new Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape to adhere many of my photos into this book and to add more visual impact.
These were fun pages to create because I am in total LOVE with this flower paper! It's so ME! On the right page I created a Cantelope cardstock strip and ran it through my embossing folder then sponged ink on it to pop the design and just used snail to adhere it to the page.
This is the back of the book and it's fun because it's pre embossed and all I used a sponge dipped in Cantelope ink and sponged color on it to match the front.
The holes are prepunched in the papers and I inserted the gold rings from the kit. I have plenty of room in this album for more pages if I need them and to add all my photos and journaling without adding larger rings!
I hope you enjoyed this show and tell of my album and that you are inspired to create a book from this kit of your own or as a gift. I know several of my daughters would love this kit to make their own albums! What a great Mother's day gift or Grandmother's gift and don't forget one for your special friends!
you can find this fun Kit HERE
Can you tell by all the times I used the word FUN and fast that I REALLY enjoyed this project! lol
