UPDATES: September 3, 2019: Weekly Updates

Flex Point Redemption Reminders

The last day to redeem flex points from the 2018–2019 Stampin’ Up! year is October 31, 2019. You can view and redeem your flex points under Ordering>My Flex Account. Please keep the following in mind as you are making plans and redeeming points:

  • Read the descriptions and place redemptions carefully. Since this rewards program is closely tied to earning the incentive trip, there cannot be any rollover of points. Consequently, all selections are final; there are no refunds or exchanges for Flex Account items.
  • All flex items are available while supplies last.
  • Flex items are not tied to a specific Stampin’ Up! year; items will come and go throughout the year. 
  • The local currency value for product credits will be based on the payout factor in effect during flex point redemption (not the payout factor in effect when placing the product order).

Policies Reminder: Angel Policy

We would like to remind demonstrators of the Angel Policy, found both in the Demonstrator Policies Document and at stampinup.com/angel-policy. Please remember when you (or your customers) create projects intended for resale, the project must include a copyright stamp (©Stampin’Up!) on the back. Angel Policy stamps can be found in the Make A Difference Stamp Set and the Crafting Forever Stamp Set in the 2019—2020 annual catalog (p. 158-159). You may also use retired Angel Policy stamps for this purpose. 

Please review the Angel Policy before you sell any projects or cards made with Stampin’ Up! products. Thank you for your support.

Incentive Trip Travel Allowances

Registration for the 2020 Maui Incentive Trip opens November 6. Travel allowances will be available for redemption in the Flex Account on September 18. As previously announced, we will offer two travel allowance amounts for Maui. There will be a 100 CSV travel allowance available for 25,000 flex points and a 250 CSV travel allowance available for 55,000 flex points. You can redeem up to four of each travel allowance. Remember, in order to redeem flex points for a travel allowance, you must first redeem flex points for the corresponding incentive trip. For more information about travel allowances, visit the Incentive Trips and the 2020 Incentive Trip pages. 

’Tis the Season for #simplestamping!

We’ve loved what you’ve been sharing, and we can’t wait to see more! We’re still sending surprises to thank participating demonstrators for posting their #simplestamping projects; have you shared yours yet? (Remember: We want as many people as possible to see your creation, so please share your card outside of the Demonstrator Planning Place to get as much exposure as possible.)

Here are the creative parameters for September’s #simplestamping challenge:

September #simplestamping Challenge

  • Theme: Christmas/New Year’s card.
  • Supplies: Stamps, ink, paper, and Designer Series Paper.

Remember to keep your project simple, share it using #simplestamping, and most of all—have fun!

Webinar Series “Social Media for Beginners”

We have sadly come to the end of our 6-part live mini-webinar-series “Social Media for Beginners”, and warmly thank everyone for their participation. We really enjoyed putting it together for you and are glad it was helpful.

The good news for all those who couldn’t make it to the live recordings: You haven’t missed out! We are posting all the recordings on Stampin’ University for you all to view and listen to at your leisure. 

  • Part 1: Introduction to Social Media
  • Part 2: Using a Blog as a Social Media Hub
  • Part 3: Facebook, The Basics
  • Part 4: YouTube, The Basics
  • Part 5: Pinterest, The Basics
  • Part 6: Instagram, The Basics

Recordings of the six English webinars, with English captioning, will be available for viewing on Thursday, September 5 at midnight under Stampin’ University>Webinar Collection>Social Media Training. They will be followed approximately a week later by simultaneously translated versions in both French and German, using voice-overs of the originals. Automated captioning will also be made available for the French and German versions. 

We are aiming to have all webinars available on Stampin’ University by mid-September. 

Happy viewing!

Ordering Downtime

Ordering will be unavailable on September 4, from midnight to 3:00 AM (MT) while we transition the system to the new catalog.

Purple Posy Ink in Production

We thank you for your continued patience while we solved quality issues with our Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 150084) and Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill (item 150091). We’re getting closer to making it available to order! Our quality-approved ink formula is with our manufacturer and they have started production on the pads and refills. We don’t yet have a date for when you’ll be able to order these items but as soon as we have more information, we’ll let you know.
