Happy Shopping!

FAQ's about Online Ordering:

Q: When can I start ordering online?A: Beginning September 9, you can order online through your demonstrator's business web site.
Q: How does ordering online work? Do I just click on the products I want? Does it automatically calculate the shipping and tax for the customer?A: Yes, Stampin’ Up!’s Online Ordering is very similar to other online shopping sites. Simply add items to a shopping bag and click to check out. The shipping and tax will be automatically calculated.
Q: When I order merchandise online, do I get to see samples and ideas for using the products?A: The online store will be very similar to the catalog. Not only will you be able to buy products directly from your demonstrator online, you’ll also be able to view samples and ideas displayed in the catalog and other Stampin’ Up! materials.
Q: Do I get hostess benefits when ordering online?A: We know your relationship with your demonstrator is important, so when you place a qualifying order from your demonstrator’s web site, you will be eligible for Stampin’ Rewards (the online version of Hostess Benefits).
Q: Is there any difference (in price, minimum shipping, etc.) between placing an online order through my demonstrator's web site and placing it with her in person? A: When you order through your demonstrator’s web site, you’ll enjoy the same catalog and minimum shipping prices, and qualifying orders will still be eligible for Stampin’ Rewards (Hostess Benefits).
Q: If I forget where to find my demonstrator’s web site, can I look her up?A: Yes. You can find your demonstrator through the Demonstrator Locator.
Q: Does Online Ordering take the place of the traditional Stampin' Up! workshop? A: Absolutely not. Nothing can replace the enjoyment of learning and stamping with friends. While you now have the convenience of ordering from your demonstrator online, Online Ordering is not designed to replace workshops, but to supplement them by giving you access to your demonstrator and her great ideas any time, day or night.
Q: With Online Ordering, will the online catalog go away?A: The new Online Ordering system is much more dynamic than the old online catalogs and is designed to replace it.

Decor Elements

Fabulous News! Stampin' Up! has introduced a new line to our already popular products.

Special Offer: Place an order in July and receive a Gift Certificate to use with the upcoming Fall/Winter Idea Book & Catalog. Contact me for more information.

Our Décor Elements product line is self-adhesive vinyl art for walls, mirrors, windows, or other hard, smooth surfaces. It is an extension of our Definitely Decorative home décor line, which is another way to express your creativity--just on a larger canvas than a card or scrapbook page! Décor Elements takes that same idea and uses a different medium to accomplish the same mission, making your home a beautiful representation of your style. And it’s inexpensive compared to painting, framing art, or buying new furniture!

This natural extension of our products is also right on trend, and our artwork converts from stamp sets to vinyl art images with ease. You’ll love the unique experience of Stampin’ Up!’s Décor Elements vinyl art. Décor Elements images and techniques available also coordinate with our existing products. We brought you Two-Step Stampin’, so why not two-step and three-step vinyl art that will really catch your attention? For example, apply a vinyl frame to a wall or window, and then apply a letter inside it.

Vinyl art is a hot trend that will continue to become even more popular than it currently is, and this is only our initial offering. By starting with a carefully-chosen sampling of products, we’ll be able to expand and adapt to what’s popular and what customers like best. We’ll be able to evaluate and change the product offering quickly and efficiently.
Whether you want to spice up the walls of your home or frame a home décor piece for display, Décor Elements is easy to apply, easy to love, and easy to remove.

Introducing Edie B!

Hello Everyone!
I am so excited to introduce you to Edie B today. Edie is my 'newest' team member although it has felt she has been a part of it for such a long time.
Edie lives in Erie, PA with her hubby Jim and her dog , Roscoe.

What a talented stamper she is! It was because of Edie that I fell in love with the stamp set "Live your Dreams."

This is the amazing thing about seeing other people's creations. You often see a set you don't particularly like or think you would never buy, but then you see others creations and that is it, you simply HAVE to have it!

Check out Edie's Blog at for more fabulous creations.

Be sure to sign up for my upcoming class (June 3rd) where we will make a cute project using the set. (See Wednesday May 8th's post) If you can't make the class, no worries you can order a kit to go! Bring a friend to the class or have her order a kit to go and you will receive a Gift Certificate.

Welcome to my Blog

Hello Friends,

My name is Maxine (Max) Conrad and I live in Riverton, UT. I am married to Lance and we are the Parents of 4 wonderful children, Natalie, Kayleigh, JD & Olivia.

I moved to Utah in 2001 when I vowed I would never get into anything crafty. I was amazed at how so many people quilted and scrapbooked. I was NEVER going to do that. I was invited to a Stampin' Up! workshop by a friend. I found out another friend had received an invite and we planned to go together.We set up a plan. I asked Lance to call me on my cell at 8pm as an excuse to leave. I had never heard of Stampin' Up! and when I found out they sold stamps and scrapbooking items, I raised my eyebrows knowing I would never buy anything.
The Demonstrator had a wonderful variety of scrapbook pages around the room and I asked my friend "Do people really waste their money and time on all of this?" My phone rang promptly at 8pm and as it really is etiquette to place an order at a workshop/party, I chose the cheapest stamp set I could find.I don't remember the name of it, but there were 4 stamps in the set and they had cute sayings. "A cherry hello' is one I remember. We excused ourselves and left. What a relief to get out of there!It dawned on me after we left we didn't even stay to eat the great treats.....another thing Utah is known for.........My order arrived. I looked at the stamp set and saw a piece of rubber and 4 wood blocks. "What the heck am I supposed to do with this?" I asked myself. I put the set back into the plastic bag and placed it on a shelf in my closet for a year!

A year later, I was spring cleaning when I reached for the bag and found the stamp set. I showed it to my Aunt Ruthie who was so into crafting and making cute things and she was ecstatic. We started making cards right away.I was planning on contacting the Demonstrator to place an order for $130. I saw at the back of the catalog, I could buy a starter kit for $199 and then saw an add on kit for $50. I checked out many companies and realized that Stampin' Up! was the one that could offer me everything to match. From Cardstock, to marker pens, to buttons, brads and ribbon.
I called the Demonstrator, and told her I wanted to sign up. I was signing up for the kit and that was it.The kit arrived and I literally thought it was Christmas. I spent such a long time looking at everything. "I think I will be a hobbyist", I told myself. "I won't sell this, I will just buy it to use for myself."

4 years later, I am doing this a business. I have a team. (Stamp to the MAX) I have wonderful customers. I hold workshops and clubs, classes and stamp camps. I started an online group for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. I just promoted to Manager and have almost earned the incentive trip to Hawaii.The highlight for me is the many, many people I have met through this wonderful company. People I would NEVER have met had it not been for Stampin' Up! When people tell me they can't host a workshop or sign up to be a Demonstrator as they don't know anybody, I tell them the only friend I had when I moved to the US, was my husband. Surely they had more than ONE friend? :)

This is amazing to me since I vowed I would never do anything crafty. I simply signed up for the kit after bringing the stamp set out of the closet after one year and now actually work FOR Stampin' Up! as a Demonstrator Support Agent. I have had many jobs throughout my life, but never one with such wonderful co-workers, Supervisors and doing something that I love.I plan on posting many projects made by myself and other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.


Happy Stampin'
