Submit a Project

October 19, 2012 We want your kit ideas for upcoming kits. No, this is not a typo. We are starting up a new kit program especially for you. YOU will be the inspiration for the kits and YOU will vote to decide which project will be sold.
This is a great way to get the entire stamping community together. Start creating! Send us your kit ideas and get ready to vote for your favorites .
The Not-So-Fine Print
  • This program is available to both customers and demonstrators.
  • While your projects should not include retired products, they may include products not created by Stampin' Up!, such as jars or frames.
  • Projects must fit into the specified category: Birthday.
  • Projects can be cards, scrapbook pages, home décor, holiday décor, birthday decorations, etc. If you can make it with Stampin' Up! product, you can submit it!
  • Submit your projects by e-mail. Send an image (less than 2 MB), supply list, and instructions for creating the project to In the subject line, include the name of your project.
  • Please keep in mind that all submissions become the property of Stampin' Up! once received. We reserve the right to change project elements, the name, or any feature to make the kit easy to reproduce.
  • What's in it for you? Glad you asked! Those who submit the winning kit will:
    • See it - your photo, name and project will be posted online.
    • Flaunt it - you'll receive "blog badge" for your personal blog or website.
    • Spend it - you wouldn't be a winner without a $100 Stampin' Up! shopping spree.
