Stampin' Up! Introduces Birthday Photopolymer Stamp Set!

Remember when I posted about our new completely clear stamping option called Photopolymer back on March 2nd?  If you don't then click Here to read that post.

Well another stamp set has been introduced and I wanted to share it with you!  It's a birthday stamp set that includes 7 clear stamps.  So here you go:

Here's why you are going to LOVE photopolymer stamp sets:

  • Top-quality photopolymer that gives a perfectly stamped image every time.
  • They’re entirely transparent for perfect placement!
  • Can you say sticky? (Don’t worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They’re age tested. They won’t yellow or cloud up over time.
Take a look at the photopolymer stamps in action by watching the video below.

I am VERY excited for these stamp sets and what Stampin' Up! will come up with next!  Order yours at then click Shop Now under the Products tab.

Stampin' Up! Color Refresh 2013

Q: What are the new core colors, and what are the In Colors that are returning as core colors?
A: The one new color is called Smoky Slate. The nine returning In Colors as core colors are Bermuda Bay, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Island Indigo, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Soft Sky, and Wisteria Wonder.

Check out these colors displayed in their new collections!
Q: Why are colors being discontinued?
A: We retired colors based on sales history and focus group feedback. We also looked at our overall color offering and determined what colors were not working with others. We sent out surveys, looked at trends, and determined what colors are out of date, etc.
Q: Why have some of the carryover colors changed collections?
A: With the changes, we found that a few colors fit better in a different collection. We also organised our colors to be more complementary within each collection.
Q: When will the new color kit be available, and will it be available to customers, too?
A: The new color kit will be available starting May 31. The kit will be available through the catalog year. All other new color products will be available with the new catalog on May 31.
Q: What about my new recruits? If they sign up between now and the end of May, will they still receive old colors?
A: Remember that the Starter Kit is mostly customizable, so you'll want to make sure your new recruits only add colors that will carry over into the next catalog. Beginning April 24, new recruits can choose anything on preorder-including new color items.    
Q: Will colors be retired in My Digital Studio?
A: We do not retire colors or products from My Digital Studio. All retiring colors will stay in your color palette.
Q: Will the new colors be available in My Digital Studio?
A: Yes. A download will be available on June 1 to add the new colors free of charge. Watch for additional downloads for accessories in new core colors after that time. 
Check out the following video to see the new color collections with samples of cards.

Stampin' Up! Q & A

New This Á That Product Line by Stampin' Up!

Q: The new This and That journals look cool. In what ways are people using them?

This and That Product Line by Stampin' Up!

A: Our latest This and That product line is based on a growing trend of smash books. They go back to the roots of scrapbooking when people created memory books filled with photos and mementos. Today’s scrapbooks can truly be a work of art to be cherished as a family heirloom, but some scrapbookers prefer to go back to a simpler and faster way of capturing what is happening in their lives. So, are you still wondering what it’s all about?
  • Do you remember doodling in your school notebook? It’s like that!

  • Have you ever created an Imagery Board for your wall or collages of magazine pictures that you like or places you want to go? It’s like that!

  • Have you ever had a journal you kept in the past and stopped because you just wanted to add a journal entry when you felt inspired instead of chronologically? It’s like that!

  • Have you ever collected ideas and inspiration from several different sources for a school project, a home renovation, a wedding, a party, or maybe a garden? It’s like that!

  • Ever wanted to have a place to add your favorite quotes when you hear them? It’s like that!

  • Need a place to collect all your love notes, recipes, or funny quotes from your kids? Yeah, it’s like that too!

I could go on and on because, as with most crafting products, the only limitation for using This and That journals is your imagination! But, I will leave you with this last idea - basically, it’s Pinterest on paper.
