My Digitial Studio News and more news !

Wow! If you've been on my blog for more than thirty seconds today, I bet you're really excited about all the fun things going on in the papercrafting world right now. Lots of exciting new products and techniques, tons of great specials, fun events coming our way-there's plenty to distract us from the sad news that a couple of our product lines are going away.
Blendabilities Markers

Unfortunately, an issue with manufacturing these markers has caused a failure rate of 30-40% totally unacceptable, of course... and Stampin' Up was unable to find a workable solution to continue their relationship with that manufacturer. So, in order to maintain the high quality standards you have come to expect through Stampin' Up's 27-year history, the product line has been discontinued, effective immediately. No further Blendabilities will be shipped as merchandise or as Sale A Bration rewards.

I know, I'm sad too! I loved colouring with these fun new tools and it's a bummer that I won't be able to get them in more colours. But you can continue to use the Blendies you already own.
There are lots of alternatives to the Blendabilites, so look at some of my previous posts, and keep an eye out for new posts, with new ideas !

 My Digital Studio
Due to the continuously-evolving nature of scrapbooking as a modern art form, and an upsurge in the technological capability to preserve memories in less traditional ways, Stampin' Up is retiring the My Digital Studio software and product line. New options and partnerships are being explored that will continue to combine the colour coordination and stamp images we know and love from Stampin' Up with the ease and convenience of the digital age.
While you can continue to use the software and downloads as long as you like (I use mine for all kinds of projects) the product line will be discontinued on May 31st, 2015, so purchase what you want/need before then. will be taken down, and you should save and back up all your downloads as they will no longer be cached on the Stampin' Up site after May 31st. I will try to send regular reminders to get those downloads permanently transferred to a safe spot before the deadline.

Of course, every time product lines depart, new ones take their place! I'm excited to see what new "hellos" are just around the corner for Stampin' Up. Bottom line - I'm proud to represent a company that refuses to put junk on the market, and is willing to make tough decisions like this one, even when the easy thing to do would be to ignore it. Pulling the plug on a promising software that quite a few people loved dearly was also a difficult choice, not easily made. It's just another reinforcement in five years of realizing that Stampin' Up is a quality company to work for. If you'd like more information on becoming a demonstrator yourself, I'd be so honoured to walk you through it and answer your questions. Let's chat!
