New Items Added for Sale-A-Bration

Since Blendabilities are no longer available as a Sale-A-Bration redemption item, we anticipate that the demand on other Sale-A-Bration items will be higher than forecasted. For that reason, all Sale-A-Bration items (with the exception of stamps) will be available "while supplies last." To help alleviate any inconvenience this may cause, we've made more items available to redeem for free during these last few weeks of Sale-A-Bration

Important Note:  You MUST use the numbers on the flyer

My Digital Studio (MDS) to be Discontinued

This is something I have seen coming for a while, but today we got the official word that My Digital Studio is being discontinued as of May 31, 2015. This includes the software, digital downloads, and print services. If you have an online account through a demonstrator, you will have through May 31st to access your digital downloads. I would strongly suggest making a backup of your downloads since you won't be able to reinstall them from your account after that date. Honestly, I back mine up by copying the Component and Designer Templates Uninstallers folders from inside the My Digital Studio folder in the Program Files (x86) on my hard drive to an external location. Then if something happens, I reinstall the software and just copy those back in (it's much easier than reinstalling it all). At this point, I will probably make a point of backing up the entire MDS folder instead, as I am assuming I will not be able to download the various updates to the hard copy I have. I would strongly suggest that you do the same.

As sad as I am about this, it is a business decision on Stampin' Up!'s part that reflects the fact that this program did not make enough money to support itself. Since Stampin' Up! is a business that needs to remain solvent and to make money, I support their decision, even though I am sad about it. They have instead chosen to go in a different direction (Project Life) for scrapbooking. I'm working on using that more, though I have to say I like MDS better since it offers for versatility, but that's just me.

Blendabilities Update

 I am VERY Sad to share this news with you - The Blendabilities Product Line has been Discontinued.  I know.. I think we all need a moment to take that in.
  • The Blendabilities markers have been experiencing defect issues, namely that many of the markers arrived dry to the customers.
  • In a nutshell, the manufacturer is unable to correct the problem and provide Stampin' Up! with a solution. Therefore the product line has been discontinued.
  • The good news is that Stampin' Up! is committed to ONLY selling the BEST products available, so rather than ship a defective product and continue to send replacements, they have made this decision.
  • The Memento Black Ink pad and refill will still be available (and that's great news because it's a fabulous black pad!)
  • What should you do?
            1.  If you currently have a pack of Blendabilities on backorder that you purchased, do nothing, you will receive a refund from Stampin' Up! within the next month.
            2.  If you have selected a free pack of Blendabilities from hostess rewards or from a Sale a Bration choice  and they are on backorder or defective, please complete the survey (CLICK HERE) - have your original order number handy - and you will be able to select a replacement Sale a Bration or hostess item. 
            3. If you feel you have a defective package of Blendabilities, please contact Stampin' Up! Demo Support at 1 800 STAMPUP.
            4. If you need ideas for coloring your images, we still have our great Stampin' Write Markers here, our Blender Pens here, and our AquaPainters sold here to use with your Stampin' Up! ink pads.  

Note: due to the unavailability of the Blendabilities as part of the advertised Sale a Bration offering, some of the other 14 Sale a Bration products MAY run out.. stamp sets will be available through 3/31/15, but the other items MAY risk selling out.
