We are inspired by the Spellbinders community’s response and eagerness to help support Ukraine.
We would like to recognize our Ukrainian Spellbinders team members Yana Smakula and Oles Bodnar. You may be familiar with Yana as she is an influencer and licensed designer for Spellbinders Paper Arts. Yana and Oles have shown incredible resilience since the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We admire their strength and passion as Yana and Oles continue to work remotely in Ukraine. Learn more and follow their journey on Yana’s blog.
The crafting community has come together to take a stand and support the people of Ukraine effected by the war, among them Spellbinders V.P. of Business Development Denzil works from Arizona to help gather donations to supply first aid, protective equipment, and rations to the people of Ukraine. He also keeps regular updates on Yana and Oles on his website: Free Ukraine 2022. You can visit the website for updates, to donate, view photos and even see the new wish list items.

You can help too. At Spellbinders Paper Arts, the Support Ukraine Collection was made to continue to build momentum for Ukraine. We have designed the Freedom Sunflowers Clear Stamp Set (STP-154) with two stamps reading “The road to freedom is bordered by sunflowers” in both English and Ukrainian. To support Ukraine’s freedom, you can make cards for the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the refugees of the invasion. The collection also includes the Hello Sunflower Clear Stamp Set (STP-017), Shapeabilities Create a Sunflower Die (S2-061), and the Sunflower and Ladybugs Dies (S4-1177). We are donating 100% of the sales from this collection to help the people of Ukraine.
Join us in showing solidarity for Ukraine’s fight for freedom. You can find the Support Ukraine Collection here on our website while supplies last.
