Current Updates and What’s New at Stampin’ Up!

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  We are already halfway through the week.  How is everyone doing?  I’m working a lot of extra hours for the next 2 weeks.  The paychecks are nice, but I like my time.  Unfortunately I don’t have a card ready for you today.  Last night we spent part of the evening looking for my dog.  She goes outside with out being tied and stays in the yard.  My daughter was watering my gardens for me while I was cooking and I asked her where she was.  That started the search.  She was no where in the yard or house to be found.  I woke my son up from his little nap and grabbed my husband  and the 4 of us, along with the neighbors were out looking for her.  My son found her a block behind us.  I guess she wanted to go for a walk and we weren’t taking her because of the heat.  I worry about her since she is getting older now and the pavement is too hot for her little paw pads.  My son came walking down our street and she was walking like a perfect little puppy right next to him, until she saw me and she came running.  She’s safe at home and didn’t leave my room all night.  I promise to have a card for you tomorrow.  So onto what’s new and going on with Stampin’ Up!

Stampin’ Up! Online Store Changes Coming August 4!

Stampin’ Up! is updating the look and function of the online store!  Yay!!  The store will be updated beginning on August 4 with a new look and feel to help you better navigate it while you shop!

Some of the new features are:

  1. The store is designed to work seamlessly on desktops, tablets, and mobile phones.
  2. New and improved store navigation provides an updated shopping experience.
  3. The site utilizes new, larger imagery to better showcase the products and allow up-close details to be seen.
  4. New sorting options and filters provide a more intuitive shopping experience, allowing you to more easily find what you are looking for. The store’s organization and terminology are also more intuitive too.
  5. The site will utilize inventory status information to show you what items will be retiring soon, have low inventory, or are backordered so you can make informed purchasing decisions.
  6. You can mark your favorite items for later reference, and you can create and share personalized wish lists!
  7. A new Quick Shop feature makes it easy to add items to your cart. And there will also be a simplified the checkout process.

A few things to know:

  1. Your account information and passwords will still work with the new site.
  2. While old bookmarks and links will forward you to the new store, your browser will see it as a “new” site. If you rely on your browser to remember their login information (registered email address and password), the first time that you log in, it will not associate the new site with that saved information.
  3. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can click the “Forgot Password” link on the new online store’s sign-in page and follow the steps to reset your password. The password reset email will come from Adding this email address to the contacts list in your email program and/or searching for your email program’s spam settings can help you ensure that you receive the email.
  4. Should you run into any problems, there is a link in the password reset window to a page with additional information.
  5. If you have trouble accessing your account, Stampin’ Up! can also help you reset your password.  Just call them at 1-800-STAMPUP and they’ll be happy to help!  Unfortunately, I’m not able to assist with password changes as it’s a security issue for you. But Stampin’ Up! can definitely help you!

Hopefully this will be a seamless transition for you on August 4!  I’m looking forward to seeing the new site design too!
