Stampin Up CEO Steps Down Temporarily | 2/20/2015

February 18, 2015 -- The co-founder and CEO of Stampin' Up, Shelli Gardner, announced that she is leaving the company for a year to serve with her husband on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Gardner plans to return to work after the year-long mission is over.

"When we return, life will resume as usual. I intend to return to work because I love what I do and love the people I work with," Gardner recently wrote on her blog.

The Gardners' daughter, Sara Douglass, will run Stampin' Up during her mother's absence.

Middle School Students Create Art with Stampin Up | 4/12/2010

Karen Schindler and Karen Hinckley, demonstrators for Stampin’ Up, a home retailer, created a stamping club for the students at Center Middle School. They have been meeting with students for five years and they purchase the materials and stamps from Stampin Up for the students to use so there is no expense.

“We get together with the kids about every other week, roughly, and it’s been really nice,” said Schindler. “We just walk them through the steps and they make the cards.”

Hinckley, who runs a summer stamp camp, thought it might be a fun and easy crafting project for the students to work on during the school year since so many seemed to really enjoy it over the summer. Some students were influenced by parents who also stamp. The students say it gives them a way to be creative even though they are not great at drawing or other mediums.

“Anyone can stamp,” said Hinckley. “Even if you’re athletic or musical, it doesn’t matter. You can be yourself and be accepted and that’s nice for this age.”

In addition to the students stamping club, a second club consisting of teachers and former teachers meets at the school once a week. Schindler claims the club is almost exact to the student’s club, except the adults purchase their own materials and are a little more experienced.

Stampin Up Changes Electronic Communication Policy | 9/3/2009

Stampin Up recently emailed changes to the Stampin Up policy on using electronic communications:

Q: If I have a Stampin' Up! blog where I promote my Stampin' Up! business and a personal blog that I keep separate from my Stampin' Up! business, do the same guidelines apply to both blogs? A: Yes. As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, any presence you have in the electronic communications world (blog, web site, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) must meet the guidelines outlined in the new IDA. When you sign the new IDA, you agree to refrain from using any electronic communications to promote, market, or sell the products of any other companies (direct selling or retail) that offer similar products, including decorative stamps in any form, stamp art accessories, scrapbooking products, digital art solutions, and vinyl wall art. Keep in mind, again, that the restriction does not completely prohibit you from using competitive products and posting images on your personal web site. You could, for example, post a project you made for your child's birthday party using non-Stampin' Up! accessories, but you would need to refrain from providing specific sales information (price, retailer, etc.) that would be considered marketing of those products. When you post projects, whether they are on your Stampin' Up! blog or a personal blog, you are representing Stampin' Up! and your postings impact your business and Stampin' Up! as a whole.
