S is for Suites

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I am showcasing the Seven Suites featured in the Occasions catalog. Whether you’re a hardcore crafter or just starting out, you’ll love Stampin’ Up!’s product suites! Products in each suite coordinate perfectly, taking the stress out of combining colors, designs, and accents. That is what makes it fun and easy to create! Look at all the different projects you can create with these suites! Click on each of the images below to see the products offered in each suite.

R is for Ribbon

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. I love Ribbon and I like to add it to my cards and projects! I love the way Stampin’ Up! color coordinates everything! I’m a “everything has to match” type of person (with clothes as well as cards) and I love the special touch ribbon adds to a project. I shared previously my love for the organza ribbon.  You can view that post HERE. Today I am going to share some ribbon projects using the other new ribbons found in the Occasions catalog and share a cool tip for the Shimmer Ribbon found in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

In addition to the new Whisper White 1/4″ Organza ribbon which I shared previously, there are 3 more new ribbons in the Occasions catalog: Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon, and Night of Navy 3/8″ Corduroy Ribbon.

Here are some of the projects I’ve shared using these ribbons.  You can click on the image to see the original post.

Here’s a few more ideas to add a touch of ribbon from the Stampin’ Up! Design Team.

In addition to the beautiful new ribbons  in the Occasions catalog, you can earn the gorgeous shimmery ribbon from the Shimmer Ribbon Pack in the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  It’s FREE with a $50 purchase!  The Shimmer Ribbon Pack has 3 different rolls of ribbon: 1/4″ Basic Gray, 1/8″ Bermuda Bay, and 3/8″ Calypso Coral.

Something so cool that you can do with the Shimmer Ribbon is curl it! I found this tip in the Sale-A-Bration brochure on page 9:  To curl the shimmer ribbon, wrap it around a wood dowel and wet it; dry it with a Heat Tool, let it cool, and voila – curl!

What’s your favorite ribbon? Leave a comment below.

Q is for Questions and Quick Tips

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. The catalog and brochures offer ideas, quick tips, and techniques! Today I decided to have a little fun and send you on a scavenger hunt through the catalog and brochures to find answers to some questions. (*I will post a link to the Sale-A-Bration brochures below. You can access the catalog from the menu bar on my blog.  If you are reading this in your email, click on the title to go to my blog.)

I always loved scavenger hunts and remember fun times racing around the neighborhood with brown paper bags seeing who could be first to find the items on the list. Well, you don’t need to run around! You can grab a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) and enjoy browsing the catalog.  Look for answers to the questions below, copy and paste the questions with your answers, and email them to me (j.stark@myactv.net).  I will pick a random winner to receive a Sale-A-Bration surprise!

Let’s see how well you do with these 10 questions…

  1.  What is “a little cheesy” in the Occasions catalog?
  2. Finish this sentiment from a stamp set featured in the Occasions catalog: “Life is beautiful ___ __ __”
  3. What new product allows you to create unique backgrounds with coloring techniques?
  4. I hope you didn’t miss this quick tip in the catalog…What should you do when stamping on vellum to prevent smearing?
  5. What color watercolor pencils are exclusive to the Lots of Happy kit (and are not available in our set of watercolor pencils)?
  6. Which stamp set answers this question: What happens if someone forgets your birthday?
  7. What new item can you use to “frame your art”?
  8. What new item can you use to make an interactive card?
  9. Here’s another quick tip answered in the catalog…How should you store Stampin’ Blends (and other Stampin’ Up! markers)?
  10. What products can you get for FREE with a $100 purchase?

Have fun! You have until Sunday, March 18th (midnight) to complete the Scavenger Hunt.  Email me with “Scavenger Hunt” in the subject.  Answers and winner will be announced on Monday, 19th.

**Last chance to get my “Just Stampin’ Card kit and 3D Project Buffet” to go this month. You will get 3 card kits and a 3D project kit. For more details and ordering information click HERE.

Have a wonderful day!
