New Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Choices

Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration 2017

Time is sure flying by since Sale-a-Bration started in January soon after Christmas. Seems like only yesterday, doesn’t it?! And even though we knew it was a long promotion, Sale-A-Bration is so much fun getting free products that it is hard to believe that it is going to end March 31, in just ten more days!

In case you are new and hearing about Sale-A-Bration for the first time, Sale-A-Bration is the biggest promotion from Stampin’ Up!  With every $50 purchase, you get to choose a FREE Sale-A-Bration product from the special brochures. There is the original SAB Brochure, the second release with three more products, and today — a few more items to choose from! See below!

SAB 2017 New Releases Flyer

Here are several products from the Stampin’ Up! Catalog and the Occasions Catalog offered now as additional Sale-A-Bration choices for the last days of Sale-A-Bration! If you have already placed orders and chosen Sale-a-Bration items, you might like a few new choices! The bad news is that a couple of Sale-A-Bration choices have sold out and are no longer available:

  • The Card Tin (143833)
  •  6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack (143831)

Also, the Ribbon Metallic 3/8″ Combo Pack is low on inventory. It is one of my favorites!I

You must use the given numbers for the products in the flyer above, not the regular catalog numbers, in order to receive these as free Sale-A-Bration items.

Besides free products, there are other benefits during Sale-A-Bration you may want to consider! Get some orders together with friends or place your own large order and  get extra Hostess Rewards.

SAB Hostess Rewards

As you can see, with an order of $250 or more, you will receive an EXTRA $25 in Stampin’ Rewards. This can be just your own order or you can go in with friends.

SAB Join

I hope you will contact me if you have any questions about perhaps joining Stampin’ Up! and starting your own business. It can be a rewarding opportunity, both personally and professionally, whether you choose to work hard and build a highly successful full-time business or whether you just order for yourself and possibly a few customers. If you love Stampin’ Up!, you will love being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator! Read more HERE for some basic information about joining Stampin’ Up!. I’m happy to answer the additional questions or concerns you will have. During Sale-A-Bration, through March 31, you will get to choose two free stamp sets in addition to the contents of your Starter Kit.

Now it’s time to get your Stampin’ Up! order together and choose your FREE Sale-A-Bration products with EVERY $50 increment of your order! Don’t delay, because more of your choices could become unavailable. But now you have some nice additional products to choose from!

A Couple New Occasions Catalog Products…Coming!

Stampin' Up! Occasions Preorder Items

As Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators, we get to preorder from upcoming catalogs, one of the many perks of being a Demonstrator. I only ordered a very few things in my Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog Preorder and received it last night. I will wait until January 4th (most likely!) when the Occasions Catalog goes live and when Sale-A-Bration begins to order MORE!Beautiful You Stamp Set

From samples I have seen online that other Demonstrators have made, I would guess that this stamp set, Beautiful You, is already very popular. I love the sketched images and the greetings. The images will be great for coloring in in kind of a watercolored look or even left plain.

I ordered the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper.  It is so soft and beautiful!  Lots of the “bokeh” look (the kind of blurry circles background), plus other really pretty patterns. It’s difficult to tell what the paper REALLY looks like until you see it in person, but I took some closer shots to give you a better idea.

Falling in Love Designer Series Paper 1

Falling in Love Designer Series Paper 2

Falling in Love Designer Series Paper 2closeupFalling in Love Designer Series Paper 1closeup

This photo above is a close up so you can see the page with the beautiful lace pattern!  Love it!!

Falling in Love Designer Series Paper 3

Watercolor Pencils Open

I haven’t had a chance to play with these Watercolor Pencils yet, but if you are newer to Stampin’ Up! you might not know that years ago (when I started!) we had watercolor pencils, but they were not in official Stampin’ Up! colors.  These are! I think most people liked the watercolor pencils, I know I did.  Very easy to color with in different techniques using a little water one way or another to blend the color. Really fun!  You should put these on your first order! Especially with the adult coloring craze right now, these will fit right in!

Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack Sample

Even during our preorder, we were allowed to choose a free Sale-A-Bration item and I chose the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack. You get two rolls of this beautiful ribbon, one with silver threads and one with gold.  They are both soft and pliable. You will love using them!

So there is a sneak peek of some new things that are coming!  Sale-A-Bration (beginning January 4th) is always a fun time because who doesn’t like to get FREE stamping things with our orders!

If you already have a Demonstrator you are working with, I’m sure you can ask her (or him!) for the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure.  If you do not have a Demonstrator you are working with and are interested in Stampin’ Up! products, I would love to be YOUR Demonstrator! I have a few extra catalogs handy for new customers, so just email me at with your contact information and I can send them out to you.  Let me know if you also want the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

My regular customers should be getting your catalogs in the mail that I ordered for you from Stampin’ Up! probably pretty soon.  Watch your mailbox and don’t lose them in the Christmas hustle and bustle!

And if you would like to be in on all the fun of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, check out some information HERE at this link. Then contact me with any questions or concerns or excitement! you have and I can tell you how to get signed up!  Great Christmas present for yourself!!

In the meantime, check out the Stampin’ Up! Year End Closeout Sale going on!

You’ve been hearing about it for awhile but now we are coming down to the wire!  One week from today, May 31st, will be the last day to order retiring products from this current Stampin’ Up! catalog! Can you believe how fast this month has flown by??

The Occasions Catalog is also ending on May 31st.  A lot of the products are carrying over into the new catalog, but not all, so be sure you have everything you want out of this catalog!

Click either of the images above to view the catalogs!

Here is the Retiring Products list!  Remember, items are only available while supplies last including stamps, now that we are past May 22. If you can’t find it in the online store then maybe it isn’t available. Be sure you search by item number if you can’t find it by name or category.

Stampin’ Up! Retiring Products 2016

Shop Stampin’ Up! Retiring Products in the Online Store

Online Ordering will be down from midnight until 3:00 AM (MT) on June 1st while Stampin’ Up! transitions the system to the 2016-17 annual catalog. During this time, no orders can be placed in Online Ordering.  You can order products from the new catalog starting at 3:00 AM (MT) on June 1st. (In case you can’t sleep and want to be putting in your order in the middle of the night or very early morning!!!)  You can imagine, with all the excitement over a new catalog there can be glitches in the computer system, slow load times due to heavy traffic, and any other kinds of hiccups. Just come back and try again. Do not try to put in your new order the night before – actually you wouldn’t even be able to enter the new product numbers – but any time there is a special, if you enter items before the special, when the offer or catalog goes live, you just have to do it over again for the computer to register the new items.

Let me know in the meantime if you have any questions or need any assistance.

JUNE SPECIAL:  For the month of June, hosts can get $35 in Extra Stampin’ Rewards when you host a stamping event with $350 or more in sales. This can be your own gigantic order or get some stamping friends together! Let me know if you have a group of friends you want to tie together in a workshop order and I can give you a Hostess Code so that each can order but you can get credit as the Hostess.  That’s more money you can use for products in the new annual catalog, and you know there are PLENTY of new products you’ll want to bring home. Remember, Stampin’ Rewards can be used on a Starter Kit, so this is a great time for potential recruits to start their business for less.

JUNE SPECIAL FOR NEW RECRUITS: Just announced today, new recruits to Stampin’ Up! in June, if you would like to start your own stamping business, will be able to choose TWO FREE STAMP SETS in your Starter Kit (excluding Bundles and Kits). Depending on what stamp sets you choose, this could have a value as high as $104! The Starter Kit is what you purchase to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator!  You can sign up Online HERE (offer begins June 1) and have your Demonstrator number in minutes! From that moment on, you are entitled to the Demonstrator discount and perks and can start making plans for starting your business in whatever manner you choose. If you prefer, you can fill out the forms and mail them in. (That’s how we used to do it!) The Starter Kit is $99 but you choose $125 worth of product to go in it! In addition, you get $50 in business supplies to help you get started! This FREE STAMPS offer is good June 1 -30.

To find out about joining Stampin’ Up!, just click HERE.

Just to tell you what is possible with Stampin’ Up! if you choose to do the work, the Demonstrators who earned it are on the Stampin’ Up! cruise to the Mediterranean this week! It takes work but is not impossible! Even if you just join for the discount, you may discover that you want to accomplish more!

One more week for the Stampin’ Up! Retiring Products list so be sure to check it out!

Stampin Rewards Extra Banner

What could be as exciting as getting the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog in June?  Maybe getting extra hostess rewards with your order?!! During the month of June, Stampin’ Up! will offer hosts with a $350 or more event (or your own order!) an EXTRA $35 in Stampin’ Rewards! Stampin’ Rewards can even be used on Starter Kits if you wish to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and start your own business.

If you would like to have some friends get together and have a stamping party or class, let me know and we can plan something. Or do what some of my customers do out-of-town, get some friends to stamp together for fun, and gather orders together along with your own. I can give you a Hostess Code to use if you want to tie several individual orders together and get credit toward your hostess total, whether or not you reach the $350. As long as you have an order total of $150, you qualify for 10% in Hostess Rewards.

Stampin' Rewards Extra June 2016

Coaster Board Magnets

Coaster Board Magnets

These little Coaster Board magnets are an idea that I found in our latest issue of Stampin’ Success, a magazine sent to us demonstrators every quarter. I’ve mentioned this magazine a lot in the past, one of my favorite perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator!  We used to get an issue every month, but unfortunately, times change, and now we get it once a quarter. But it is still a fun source of stamping ideas and business tips.

You might not even know what Coaster Board is or that Stampin’ Up! carries it! What in the world is Coaster Board??! Stampin’ Up! describes it as thinner than chipboard but sturdier than cardstock. It makes it the perfect material for any projects where you want something stronger than cardstock. You can stamp it, die cut it, and make 3D projects with it.

These magnets are cut 2 1/2″ x 2″. Of course you can make yours any size you want. I was going for small and cute! Decorate the front like a tiny card or adhere a photograph, attach embellishements or do some stamping on them! Then just attach a magnetic strip on the back (you can pick up all kinds of magnets for crafts at a craft store). This is a good way to use up some of your small scraps, leftover embellishments, etc. etc. Just have fun with it!

Coaster Board also works really well with the Berry Basket Die to make baskets that are stronger than cardstock. You can see the basket I made and the details HERE in this post.

Berry Easter Basket Wildflower Meadow

And if you would like to receive the magazine for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators, Stampin’ Success, plan to join the Stampin’ Up! family yourself, especially now during Sale-A-Bration! Purchase the Starter Kit for only $99 and during Sale-A-Bration, get an extra $30 in product! Than means you will get $155 in product for only $99! Run your business as big or little as you like. You also receive some Stampin’ Up! Catalogs and business supplies to get you started!Sale-A-Bration Starter Kit Special

For more information and to answer your questions, just email me at or click HERE on the website for more information.  Signing up is easy!  You can do it online in a matter of minutes and have your Demo number to start looking around the Stampin’ Up! website for Demonstrators while you wait for your Starter Kit to arrive!

Put some Coaster Board on your next Stampin’ Up! order and make some cute Coaster Board magnets and other projects with it!

Stampin’ Up! 2015 Convention Highlights

I’m back from ten days of vacation, but don’t quite have my feet back on the ground yet! After spending several days in St. Louis visiting family and a couple friends and eating some of our favorite foods, we went to beautiful Michigan for several days visiting very kind friends who invited us to experience summer there and stay at their lake house. This was our second visit because we loved it so much the first time! Besides the beautiful, relaxing views of their smaller lake, Lake Michigan was stunning, having colors of blues just like the ocean! The scenery was beautiful, lots of interesting wineries, cute small towns along the way, and water everywhere!

While I was away, though, Stampin’ Up! was holding their convention in Salt Lake City. Obviously I wasn’t there this year, but I have attended many previous years and always thought it was one of the most fun things I have ever experienced! What could be more fun than to be with thousands of people who enjoy the same craft you do and be inspired by the presentations on stage of new products, creative ideas, displays of phenomenal projects by Stampin’ Up! employees and Demonstrators!

While I catch up on life again and recent Stampin’ Up! news, I am posting this video of Stampin’  Up! Convention 2015 highlights! It opens with Demonstrators visiting the Home Office in Riverton, Utah. You can get a taste throughout the video of the culture of Stampin’ Up! and the fun of being a Demonstrator! And maybe you will decide to join the Stampin’ Up! family and be a Demonstrator, too!

This was a unique year, with Shelli Gardner, Founder and CEO of Stampin’ Up!, not in attendance as she and her husband are serving a mission in Hawaii for a year. But her daughter Sara Douglass, from accounts I have seen, served admirably in her place. So that is who you see on stage rather than Shelli!

Today Is The Day! New Stampin’ Up! Catalog Goes Live!

New Stampin' Up! Catalog 2015-16

Today is the day we’ve been waiting for!  What can be more exciting than a new Stampin’ Up! Catalog?! It is live today, June 2nd. Please be patient if you are ordering today. I know from experience on such a big day there are often computer glitches and high traffic, but usually if you wait a bit, sometimes half a second, sometimes a couple hours, things will settle down and you can catch a break and get in. I know Stampin’ Up! wants the experience to go smoothly for everyone, but we can all understand the excitement of the first day of a new catalog!

New Stampin’ Up! 2015-16 Annual Catalog PDF

Stampin’ Up! Online Store

Today, June 2nd, is the ONLY day you can order from the outgoing Stampin’ Up! Catalog, the Occasions Catalog (also the last day for this catalog), and/or the NEW Catalog! Any carry-over products from the old catalog that are in the new catalog, if there is a price increase, will be the old price. Also, if you have a large order ($150 or more) or workshop with friends, and you order on June 2nd, you will receive the same Hostess benefits you are accustomed to. Beginning June 3rd, these change a bit.

  • If you can’t find a category for an outgoing product, just put it in the search box.  The categories are made for the new catalog – ie. Digital.

Here are some new catalog updates from Stampin’ Up!

  • We’ve identified a sizing error with two of our Designer Series Paper Stacks, and have opted to not offer the following two collections at catalog launch:
    138435: Neutrals Collection Designer Series Paper Stack
    138436: Regals Collection Designer Series Paper Stack
    We do not expect a long delay in getting these items up to our quality standards and will let you know as soon as they are made available for ordering.
  • The Watercolor Wishes Card Kit (item 140406; p. 80 and p. 155) will not be available for purchase until July 2015.
  • Page 110: Item #138946
    Under the Project Kit header at the top of the page, the Tin of Cards Stamp Set price is incorrectly listed as $16.00. The correct price is $17.00.
  • Page 142 Item #139003 Sahara Sand is incorrectly listed as one of the colors in the Bohemian Cardstock Pack. The correct color is Delightful Dijon.

My Digital Studio Banner 2015

And let’s not forget My Digital Studio!!!  I feel very sad that this is the end of MDS. I was at the Convention when they announced it and demonstrated it and ordered the software as soon as it was released. I think the original price was $80 so if you can buy it now for $13.97, you know you are REALLY getting a deal!  The software comes with a tremendous amount of content and you can choose any other downloads you would like, including some Project Life cards and stamp brushes (stamps). Today is the last day to make any purchases, of the software or any downloads you want, or order any printing you want done, but support has been extended until June 9th. If you want just a few downloads, you can use them with other design software on your computer – for example you could print a stamp greeting and use it on a card. I will have more information for what follows for MDS users a little later.


JOIN Stampin’ Up! June 2 – 30 and receive TWO FREE STAMP SETS of your choice with the purchase of the Starter Kit for $99 (choose $125 worth of merchandise for your kit!). You will love being a part of Stampin’ Up! and you can choose to build your business in the manner that works for you and your family.

It’s so much fun to wake up on Tuesday mornings and check and see what Stampin’ Up! has put on the Weekly Deal!  These are the products available at a discount for Tuesday, October 7 through Monday, October 13. Great items again!  Punches and framelits are always good! Stock up on Silver Glimmer Paper, especially with the holidays coming up, but it’s good for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, anything pretty! The Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon can be used on the Chevron side OR the plain side!  Two for the price of one! Pick up some of the This And That Epic Day Journals and decorate for Christmas gifts or any other gifts. Just add some Designer Series Paper here and there, maybe some embellishments, keeping it all generic unless you want to personalize it specifically for someone.  Who wouldn’t like a pretty journal to have? And you just saw me use the Geometrical Wood Stamp Set the other day to make a Halloween card in this post. It’s a fun stamp set to have.
