Stampin'Blends-New Markers Coming Soon!!!

I know some of you may remember the Blendabilities from a few years ago. They were not great quality and when Stampin'UP! learned about the downfalls, they stopped selling them and in turn gave customers their money back. Stampin'UP! is assuring us that these markers have been put thru very stringent testing and that we will NOT have any problems with the new Stampin'Blends.
I love the fact that you can buy them individually and of course they coordinate beautifully with all of the other products. I will be having future technique classes on these markers and will have videos and How To's.
