Welcome to the blog of Jane Hignite, Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

My Stampin’ Up! Anniversary

It’s hard to believe 14 years ago I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  As many demonstrators can relate, I “only signed up for the discount” was my feeling at the time.  I had no intention of doing parties or teaching others; I just wanted to get my crafting goodies cheap!

Well, here I am 14 years later, and my classes are busier than ever!  I love what I do, and I truly cherish the women I have welcomed into my home and crafting circle.

I started my anniversary celebrations earlier this month – I’m hosting an event in my home plus offering an item for 14% off each week.  I’ve offered some giveaways on my Facebook page already.  Here’s one for readers of my blog:





You will receive this Paper Pumpkin Kit – Party Pennants!  It includes 3 background stamps, 2 inkspots (Summer Starfruit and Pool Party), and all the items to make a cute little banner!  You can use the banner to decorate your hearth, a cake, or take parts of it and use it on cards or scrapbook pages!

Leave a comment on my blog and tell me what you will be celebrating in the coming months!  I’ll pick a random winner on Wednesday evening!

2013 Color Refresh

More exciting news posted on the demonstrator side of the website today – we're getting a Color Refresh!  Color is fundamental to who we are and what we offer.  It's important for us to stay current with color trends.  Stampin' Up! is updating its color lines for the upcoming catalog.  They did a big color renovation in 2010 and announced they would be introducing smaller color refreshes every three to five years to keep their colors on trend.  It's been three years already!  Stampin' Up! will be including 10 new colors (which are mostly returning IN COLORS) to the upcoming 2013-2014 annual catalog.  They are welcoming back some of your newer favorites, moving some colors around, and introducing one brand-new neutral color.  Here's the new combinations:


Be sure to get as much paper/ink/refills/accessories for the retiring colors as soon as possible – they are only available while supplies last!  This weekend's FREE SHIPPING special is a great excuse to place your retiring colors order!

My Christmas Wish List

 My Christmas Wish List


Is the season upon us?  Say it isn't so.

I am not ready; So busy…on the go!

Who will help keep me from going insane?

My Stampin' Up! Demonstrator,  Jane Hignite is her name .


You've asked me to list what I want under the tree.

It's stampin' stuff I desire for Santa to bring me.

So, the list is below, be sure to check it twice.

I'm sure you'll choose something that's especially nice!


And on Christmas morning I won't shed a tear

Over a misfitting dress or a pair of underwear.

For the things I want most are not at the mall,

And since I've been so good, couldn't I have it all?


Can't decide what to buy, too many choices for you?

A Stampin' Up! gift certificate would be wonderful too!

Thank you honey, thank you dear….

You know I love stamping all through the year!

For The Birds Word Window Latch Card

At my Technique Tuesday class this month, I taught my customers how to make a Word Window Punch latch card. 

For the Birds-word window latch card

For the Birds-word window latch


Here's how you do it:

  1. Cut your card stock at 4-1/4" along the short end.
  2. Fold card stock in half.
  3. Take the BOTTOM of the base card and find the center of the short side of the card stock.  Make a small pencil mark at this point about 1/4" above the edge of the card stock.
  4. Punch out a Word Window with the small pencil mark in the center.
  5. On the FRONT piece of the base card, punch out a PARTIAL Word Window on each side just at the edge (you'll use about 3/4 of the punch). 
  6. Decorate card to finish!

I used our fabulous Stitched Satin Ribbon – which you can get for FREE this month with a $40 order!
