My Digital Studio Update:
I actually have a few bits of GOOD news concerning My Digital Studio this morning. Stampin’ Up! made the following announcements on it’s Demonstrator website this morning:
While Stampin’ Up! previously announced that the MDS product line would be unavailable after Sunday, May 31, 2015, it is excited to let you know that all of its MDS items will be included in the upcoming Retired List promotion from April 21-June 2, 2015. Digital downloads, software, and print products will all be discounted by 30 percent and are guaranteed to be available through the end of the promotion (MDS software discs are available while supplies last). Click here to see a list of products, including promotional prices for each item.
Stampin’ Up! has extended the availability date for MyDigitalStudio.net, the digital download manager, and its MDS YouTube, Facebook, and Pinterest pages through midnight, June 9, 2015. Demonstrators and customers may call Demonstrator Support for assistance with MDS until Demonstrator Support closes at 7:00 PM (MT) on Tuesday, June 9.
The Let’s Get Away Digital Project Life Card Collection by Stampin’ Up! from the occasions catalog was posted on the ProjectLife.com website yesterday and is currently available for 20 percent off. For the foreseeable future, all Digital Project Life card collections will be made available through the ProjectLife.com store. (There are both Project Life by Stampin’ Up! and Project Life digital downloads at that site.) I’ve never tried to download something from this site, but I plan on buying the Let’s Get Away download, so I’ll let you know what I find out. I did notice that the download only includes the card collection, no stamp brushes. However, there are other Project Life by Stampin’ Up! stamp brushes on that site, so it looks promising for an ongoing resource for digital downloads!
While Stampin’ Up! will not sell MDS after June 2, 2015 or offer support for MDS after June 9, 2015, it is working on a solution for you to continue to be able to use your digital downloads and order print products. Stay tuned for updates.
Stampin’ Up! hopes you enjoy the Retired List promotion—and that the extended deadlines will be helpful to both demonstrators and customers as it phases out the MDS product line.
So, that’s a little encouraging! I’ll keep you updated as I learn more information.
New Weekly Deals:
There are some really awesome deals this week, including lots of items from the current Occasions catalog!
I’ve been a little preoccupied with Stamps In the Mail, dance competitions, and tax season, so I didn’t have time to design a card for today. But, I thought I’d share a really cute card that my dear friend Faith make for my daughter when she was sick with pneumonia a few weeks back. I thought this card was so clever, and it sure made my daughter smile. I especially love the googly eyes and the way she made the fence! The animals and sayings are from the From the Herd stamp set. The tree is from Sheltering Tree. I also love the way she added the leaves and flowers on the bottom. This is such a happy, cheerful card.
Thanks again Faith for your thoughtful card! Shannon loved it:)
New Annual Catalogs:
Can you believe it? The new 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog will be coming out in a couple months! (New products will be available to order from this catalog starting June 2, 2015.) I will be sending out FREE catalogs to all my customers who participate in my monthly Stamp Club, subscribe to Paper Pumpkin, and / or subscribe to Stamps In the Mail. Additionally, I will be sending out FREE catalogs to any customer who placed an order with me in the past year for $25 or more.
If none of those circumstances apply, but you would still like me to order you a new catalog, please leave me a comment below. Catalogs are $5.00 each. I need to have all orders in by April 30. The new catalogs will be mailed by Stampin’ Up! on approximately May 12th.
As an added bonus, if you place a $25 order with me after receiving the catalog, I will reimburse you for the price of the catalog.
Hope you have a great week!
