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.

People like to make fun of me for creating pages with no photos on them- well I was digging though said pages for a few fast layout ideas and found this basic page I had made and sold kits for. I added a few things to coordinate with the book and tah dah------- 2 page layout ready and in the book! Only 1 more 2 page and a single left to create!
The cloud and the owl/limb and letters were all created from 2 different Cricut Cartridges- same critter cartridge I mentioned in my first post and I cant remember the name of the font one- its downstairs and I am upstairs at my desktop computer. Sorry! The blue square is from a retired Stampin Up kit they sold. I think the brads add just the right touch to pull the colors of the owl and papers together. The BRANCH was put through our Woodgrain Embossing folder after I had brayered it with Chocolate Chip Ink. It's to die for! The owl but not the branch are adhered with dimensionals.
For those of you who so sweetly emailed me asking about my face, its MUCH better today, still the outer skin left to peel but, I am happy so far with the results. The first 3 days were killer and my skin is VERY tender!
Hope you have a fabulous and creative day! Thanks for stopping by!
Well, I am happy to report that I am just about finished with the babies scrapbook! Just in time to mail Monday for the Shower on March 2nd! woot!
here is my Mr Huggable 2 page layout
And here are a few close ups of the elements on the pages:
Layering the words and putting them on the page with dimensionals really make them stand out. I used black for the shadow to coordinate with the Zebra on the other page and I used the same animal print as the strip under it for the words. It really worked perfectly!
Oh my gosh, these Zebra turned out so stinkin cute!
They are cut at 4 inches in size
The clouds were cut on my Silhouette Cameo using a Lori Whitlock file in Very Vanilla Cardstock and sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake to match the printed paper behind it- just no extra glitter that way she can journal in them.
Antique brass brads add a cute touch when turned into a diamond shape and bring the brown from the background strip out.
Fun pages to create (glad to move on to the next 5 and get them done!)
I prefer making 2 page layouts but all books have a single page here and there so I created this. Again, I am keeping these pages with the focus on the photo and not the "stuff" but we have to add some cuteness too!
Stampin Up cardstock, papers, Inks and some adhesives are ACID FREE and perfect for your precious projects that you want to last forever!
Ink, Classic Stampin’ Pads and Refills
Have an Awesome and Creative Day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

I am having a blast creating these pages for the new grandbaby that is coming!
This pack of paper is so fun to work with! And I also used the 4.5 x 6.5 pad that coordinates. I used both pages from the 12x12 pad and cut one in half to make the 2 side pieces. Then I cut the animals out of the other page and added them over top with dimensionals to create this look~
The zebra strip light paper left over after cutting out each animal was used for the next 2 page project that you will see in an upcoming post. (it's not quite finished yet)
The Basic Gray 12x12 Stampin Up cardstock was stamped in Basic Gray ink and the splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge clear mount Stamp Set # 130517- wood mount is # 130514
The 4.5" x 6.5" pad papers are not put on with dimensionals, they are adhered directly to the cardstock with Acid Free Stampin Up! Snail Adhesive so that Mom can journal about her photos. I didn't give this layout a "title", because in the bottom left journal box it already has "Growing Up" printed on it. If she wants something else she can tell me later on and I will create it for her and send it!
I am so very glad I made a goal for scrapbooking this year because I absolutely LOVE it! THAT IS the REASON I became a Stampin Up! demonstrator to scrapbook and teach it. (well and the handy dandy discount on all products too!)
I hope you are inspired and are enjoying my pages and that you will get out your supplies and create~! There are more pages on the way so stay tuned~!
