Exciting, right?? I know. We are positively elated to share this announcement with you, and we hope this news causes many little happy dances across the world. Some of you know exactly what’s going on with the picture at the top of this blog post and some of you are not yet as familiar with Stampin’ Up! so I’ll explain a little about their company, what this new partnership is all about, and why it benefits so many people.
First of all, visit Stampin’ Up!’s About page to learn a little more about them. Their “Statement of the Heart” is To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments … in this we make a difference!
Our company motto is Cultivate a Good Life and Record It. Both of our companies value many of the same business principles, which makes this an even more beautiful thing. But what is this partnership? Why does it matter? What does it mean for you?
Stampin’ Up! is a direct sales company where demonstrators have in-home parties. Think Mary Kay, Tupperware, that sort of thing … but for paper crafters. Yes, obviously they’re big on stamps and all things paper-crafting with a little bit of scrapbooking. They’re big on Project Life®, too! There’s now a whole division of their product offering that will be Project Life by Stampin’ Up!
Stampin’ Up! demonstrators scattered across all 50 States and several countries across the world are hearing this news right now – same time as you. Many of them already know about Project Life so this is very exciting for them, as they’ll have a boost in their own business and they’ll get to experience how life-changing it can be to help their own customers get their photos into albums and get a grip on scrapbooking in a way that is less intimidating and time-consuming.
We have heard from many of you (on social media, via email, even in person when we’ve met you) who have shared your passion for Project Life and you’ve told us about your experiences in telling your friends about Project Life and how you’ve helped someone get started and how you’ve converted someone to this easier, faster, simpler way of scrapbooking. Now you have the opportunity to actually earn some money doing that very same thing! How great is that!?
It’s one thing to tell someone about Project Life and explain how easy it really is. It’s another thing to be able to sit down with someone and show them just how beautifully simple the scrapbooking process can be with Project Life. They immediately “get it.” They see with their own eyes what a no-brainer, solution-based system this is. And should they choose to get more creative – Project Life by Stampin’ Up! offers the coolest coordinating embellishments for everything we do. Today we’re announcing this new partnership. In the coming weeks we’ll be sharing more about the actual product so you can see the cool designs and get excited for what’s about to land at many of your front doors.
Here’s a little video message from me.
Q: What types of Project Life products will Stampin’ Up! offer?
A: You’ll see Card Collections, Accessory Packs, Albums, Photo Pocket Pages, tools, other accessories, and Stamps, of course!
Q: Are the card designs the same as what we can buy in the stores?
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.
Q: How do I buy these products?
Q: Why order through a demonstrator?
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!
Q: Where do I learn about becoming a demonstrator?
A: Visit the Stampin’ Up! website to learn more.
Q: How do I sign up to become a demonstrator so I can sell Project Life myself and make money doing it?
A: Once you’ve decided that this is a great opportunity for you, you can sign up through their website HERE.
Q: Are the products packaged the same as existing products (i.e. Core Kits, Mini Kits, etc.)?
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.
Q: When will the products be available?
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.
Q: Will the Project Life by Stampin’ Up! products be available in digital format?
A: They sure will! Stay tuned for more information on when those will become available.
