Welcome to our New Website!

65

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our new website! As you look around and get a feel for the new site, you may see some things that feel different than our old site. Some of it will feel new, fresh and exciting, some it will feel awkward and a little hard to understand. That’s normal. New is hard but I promise, in this case, it will be better.

Photos and Galleries

We are still working out some of the bugs. Our gallery is an issue and we are still trying to decide if we should keep it or invite you to share with us via another site like Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook since almost all of you are in one of those three places anyway.

Monthly Challenges

Our Challenge page is a challenge right now because we aren’t sure where to send you to share your card. We could use the gallery we have here for that but there isn’t a place to comment and interact like there is on the other three social media sites I mentioned above.

Shopping

When shopping, you may not see certain items in the categories you’re used to. They are actually there but some of the categories didn’t make it over so you have to search for the item by name. That will be fixed and it’s being worked on as we speak.

Forum

I have added a way to add your profile picture to the Welcome forum. If you have ideas for new Main Topics, please let me know. If you want a place to ask for cards for friends and family, we can set that up. We can bring over some of the old Topics from the old StampTV site if you guys enjoyed using them. Let me know in the comments what you think you’d like to see.

International

We are working on some of the details of International shipping and we should have many other countries turned on soon. If you need something quickly, you can send an email to info@ginakdesigns.com and we can try to help get an order to you using a different method while we figure this out.

Finally, thank you for your patience. It’s taken almost a year to get this done! And it’s still not done-done but it’s really coming along.

And I’ll give you a little sneak peek about something that is coming soon!

These are two of five brand new Amalgam Ink colors coming to Gina K. Designs. Four of them are perfect for different types of no-line coloring. The one of the left is called Warm Glow and the one on the right is called Whisper. There is one that is even lighter than these too! I can’t wait to show you all of them! They will debut at Creativation and then they will be available at Gina K. Designs and other fine retailers.

    Gina, I beg you to keep a Gallery on here, at least for us old-timers! Some of us prefer this setting as opposed to the huge atmosphere of FB or Instagram.

    Good luck with all if this! You are in my prayers as you try to work out the bugs. So far, I think it looks sparkly & inviting.

      Yes, we will leave it for now but I want it to be functional. So we will keep trying to make it work. πŸ™‚

    I think a space to comment on the latest tool, gadget or technique would be fun.

    Everything looks great. I was in IT for many years and know that not everything we want is as easy to do as it would seem. We just have to keep plugging away until we get it as close as possible. Best wishes!

    So awesome to see all your work and designs blossom into an even bigger and better web site and business. You and your tribe are such a great inspiration to those of us coming late in our lives to this craft. Thank you, God bless you this Christmas and in the new year.

    Love the clean, beautiful look of the new site! I’m sure this has been a huge undertaking and there will be some bumps to smooth out as it is launched, but it will eventually feel like home and work really well. Looking forward to exploring it more fully soon.

    Gina…

    Congratulations on your new site. I like the easy access format, not too hard to find what you are looking for. Just a quick note…Not all of us who visit your website are into Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. I love visiting your site because I don’t have to use these forums to see and get lovely ideas for cards. Merry Christmas and may the New Year bring you bigger and better things.

    Hi Gina from Australia.
    Really enjoying the new website, for me it is easy to use and is clean and simple to get around in. A couple of things though: I have tried to add my billing and shipping address to the new website but don’t see any tab for Australia in the drop down box. Hopefully this will be soon up and running.
    Also, I too would rather the gallery site be kept as I find it much easier to scroll through the photos in the gallery than on Facebook and Pinterest. I am not a subscriber to Instagram.
    Thanks Gina and team for all the great work you are doing in the creative stamping world. It is busy out there but I find I am not deviating to any other stamping sites – from day one quite some years ago, I have loved your products and projects. My bucket list one day is to come and visit your store in person. Thank you Gina and team.

      Just go to the sign in link up at the top right hand corner and set up your account there. πŸ™‚

    Everything looks great! I love that I can now create a wish list. I did enjoy searching for stamps by illustrator; will this be added? Congrats on this big project!

    I love the look of your new site, but my email is no longer valid. Did our account history come over? Do we have to re-register?

  26. mvantas

    Thursday, December 27, 2018

    I love the new site so far, but as mentioned above, not all of us are using social media, lots of controversy over those who police those sites, so would love to have the galleries etc. here on this site, where we know we are safe!

  27. Amy Wazwaz

    Thursday, December 27, 2018

    Oh no. Just when I thought I had all the colors of ink. Please do a set of new mini ink cubes for 2019 like you did last year so those if us who have all the inks already can easily buy the new inks. The paper packs would be perfect in new colors lime last year also. I amSure you have already thought if that with your brilliant self, but just in case.

  28. Catherine

    Thursday, December 27, 2018

    Gina, Congratulations on the result of all your hard work but I think we should have been notified that we had to create a new account before we went through the frustration I did this afternoon to try to place an order. I don’t know if I can keep up with what is happening (so sad) because I am not into all this sophisticated technology and miss the inspiration I always got from watching your videos. I hope I can still find ordering as easy as it was before? HAPPY NEW YEAR

    1. Gina Krupsky

      Thursday, December 27, 2018

      Ordering should be much easier now. I did a post about this on the home page of the old StampTV website and left it up for several weeks. I also sent it out in an email prior to the launch. So sorry you missed it. Again, ordering is now easier and it’s easy to get notifications when things go back in stock with the click of a button. You can also create wish lists. The site is much more user-friendly and very organized so you should have no problem navigating to what you are looking for.

    Hello, I’m trying to follow the blog on your new Website through Feedly. It’s not recognizing the blog address: https://www.ginakdesigns.com/blog/

    I can follow a specific blog post, but get updates in Feedly every time someone comments on a post.

    Any suggestions you have so your blog is found by Feedly is appreciated.

      I will ask our web developer if they know how to do that.

    Congratulations on your new website. And, your retail store looks terrific.

    I have been a longtime customer and fan. Over the years I have learned so much from your videos. And, all your products have been top notch.

    I wanted to place an order during your current sale. But, I was unable to log in. So, I created a new account using the same username and I just made my purchases. Afterward, I realized that my old purchases did not transfer. Is there a way your IT staff can merge my two accounts? I’m sorry if I created more problems for you.

    Again congratulations!

    I tried to select notify me for the masking product that is out of stock but I keep receiving a message that says “You must be signed in ” I did sign into the other site but can’t find the option of signing into the new site.

    1. Gina Krupsky

      Saturday, December 29, 2018

      You will have to create and new account on the new site. So sorry for the inconvenience. That information was unable to be brought over.

    Saturday, December 29, 2018

    Still getting used to the new website but have one complaint. The font seems to be a lighter colour (more like a grey than black) and as I have vision problems I am finding it difficult to read, I don’t know if it’s just my old eyes or whether anyone else has noticed this.

    1. Gina Krupsky

      Sunday, December 30, 2018

      I haven’t heard anything from anyone regarding the text. I’m reading your comment and it looks black and white to me. Are you seeing a different color here?

  33. Judy Inukai

    Sunday, December 30, 2018

    I like the new site. I’m still feeling my way around, but it’s getting easier for me. I hope the gallery issue can be worked out. As several have mentioned, not everyone is into the social media scene. The old gallery style is just cozier and more personal. I really enjoyed reading the details that some posted on how they created their card or even just the products they used. I also liked the opportunity to leave comments on cards. Comments from others always mean a lot to me. Another thing I like was being able to send and receive friend requests. I know I will probably never meet these people in person, but I really feel a close connection to some of them that I’ve developed through Stamp TV. Thanks for all your hard work and all the inspiration you and the Design Team have provided me over the years. Happy New Year! I’m looking forward to seeing all the goodies (besides the new colors) that 2019 will bring.

    1. Gina Krupsky

      Sunday, December 30, 2018

      We hope to be able to work it out. Keep in mind that if we use Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest, you can leave comments, save and like and the creator can include a full how-to description as well. πŸ™‚

    My we please have a space where we can just chat? Like right now at the old stamptv kit forum we are chatting about our new year’s goals/ideas for 2019 in our craft rooms. Nothing too organized or formal – girls talking over a cup of coffee/wine/tea.

    1. Gina Krupsky

      Thursday, January 3, 2019

      Yes, I can create a forum for everyday chat.

    Really like the new web site. God has blessed you and your girls with talent galore and this is a blessing to us as well. Would like to see paper sizes for the cards and layering papers as well.
    Happy and Blessed New Year to you;

    Hi everyone!
    I can’t get into the site.
    Will not except my email address. Says it is not valid.
    Won’t let me reset my password because says my email is not valid.
    I am wondering, do we all still have access to our pages where we have posted all of our cards?

    Marianne

    1. Gina Krupsky

      Saturday, January 5, 2019

      You will have to set up a new account here. The old site wouldn’t allow us to transfer accounts over.

  41. Nancy Latham

    Very nice. So far I like what I see.
    I enjoy your videos too.

    Hello ~ I’m brand new to your company. I received a wreath builder turn about for Christmas from a dear friend. I just love it and had to search up your store to see what you have. I just registered for an account but I don’t see any place to sign up for a news letter. Is this option available? Off to do more looking and start building a wish list.

    1. Gina Krupsky

      Tuesday, January 8, 2019

      We are switching over to a new email provider and we will be exporting our accounts here to merge with our existing database. You should start to get newsletters soon! The first one will be at the end of January. πŸ™‚

    Saturday, January 12, 2019

    Congrats on new website Gina,family and Team!
    I’ve registered and await country updates to add billing and shipping address (Ireland). I’ve noticed the font is coming up as pale grey but subject title is black which is a little more difficult to read. It’s just teething problems and not a big issue, just giving some feedback, hope you don’t mind ;). Looking forward to the new amalgam inks – love Whisper and Creativation with anticipation!!!! Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us and wish you success, love and laughter in 2019.
    BTW can we have a gallery with hints and tips section like on oldsite to refer to when we need help with a technique. TIA

    1. Gina Krupsky

      Saturday, January 12, 2019

      We won’t be able to add that to the gallery but we can add a forum with Hints and Tips for people to share and they can link to photos.

    I have been a fan and member of your great site for many years Gina, and have gained so much from it, I have had problems trying to find my gallery, but now reading and looking at your new site I understand. but, what will happen to all the pics from everyones gallery?

    1. Gina Krupsky

      Sunday, January 13, 2019

      Hazel, you can still visit http://www.stamptv.ning.com and download all of your photos while the site is still up. We will be shutting down the site eventually so if you want to save your photos, head over to the old site and save what you want from there. πŸ™‚
