The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I got back last night from visiting my son, family, and friends in Massachusetts. We had a wonderful time but it’s always so hard to say good-bye!  My daughter flew back to Georgia this afternoon and I went back to school.  (At least my sweet little ones always bring a smile to my face!) January always seemed like a let down after the holidays until I started Stampin’ Up! Now I look forward to it because SALE-A-BRATION time is here!!

2019 Sale-A-Bration Brochure cover
Sale-A-Bration truly is the most wonderful time of the Stampin’ Up! year. It’s the biggest Stampin’ Up! sale event of the year where customers and demonstrators can earn FREE, exclusive products with every qualifying order. 2019 Sale-A-Bration starts tomorrow and runs January 3 through March 31!
There are three ways you can take advantage of Sale-A-Bration: Shop, Host and Join.
Earn FREE stamping products for every $50 purchase of product from any Stampin’ Up! catalog.  It’s the perfect time to purchase the items on your wish list while earning more products for free.  Purchase products from the Annual Catalog, the new Occasions Catalog and/or my Online Store and get FREE products from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.
Here’s how it works:
*For every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping), you get a FREE Level 1 Sale-A-Bration product.
*For every $100 you spend (before tax and shipping), you can either get two FREE Level 1 Sale-A-Bration products OR you can get one FREE Level 2 Sale-A-Bration product. (Click on the Sale-A-Bration Brochure link above to view the Level 1 & Level 2 product choices.)

Get together with friends and host a qualifying party (at least $250 in sales) during Sale-A-Bration and you’ll earn an extra $25 in Stampin’ Rewards.
Don’t want to host a party?  You can  still get in on the extra $25 Stampin’ Rewards by placing a $250 order.  Doing so will also let you choose at least FIVE Level 1 Sale-A-Bration products (or a combination of Level 1 and Level 2 products) for free with that $250 order!  You can even apply your Stampin’ Rewards dollars toward the Starter Kit and become a demonstrator yourself!   Contact me today if you’re interested!!

W is for Wishes for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #40

Stampin Up Birthday Wishes For you card idea using Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. It’s Thursday so that means it’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I used elements from this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge to create my card. I love how fun and easy it is make a card or project when you pick 3 in a row and create!  You should give it a try! It’s such a fun challenge! I made a diagonal this week using twine, metallic, and rhinestones. Here’s this week’s challenge board.


Oh how I love the Birthday Wishes for You Stamp Set! It is featured on page 3 in the Occasions catalog…right as you open up the book.

Stampin Up Birthday Wishes For You Stamp Set - For inspiration and ordering visit - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I knew immediately this would become a well used stamp set in my craft room.  I make a lot of birthday cards and love how this stamp set makes it quick & easy to create.  I also love that I can color it with my Stampin’ Blends and make it color coordinate with whatever Designer Series Paper I use.  This set is priced so reasonable at just $12 (clear mount). I stamped it using my Stamparatus and made multiples ready to color and assemble as needed.

If you didn’t get in on the preorder for the Stamparatus, you will be able to order it in June when the new Annual Catalog debuts.  Trust me, you are going to want this and you’ll thank me that I told you to put it on the top of your wish list!! I love that if you don’t get a perfectly clear image the first time you can just reink and stamp again right on top because it gives perfect alignment each and every time! It is also great for 2, 3, or 4- step stamping and saves time and money with fewer mistakes.

Today is my sister’s birthday! Our birthdays are just 2 days apart and we love to celebrate together when we can.  (Living over 400 miles apart doesn’t make that an easy task!) We talk on the phone every day! She loves the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper so I knew that I wanted to use it for her birthday card. We both love the silver foil and handpainted designs! I cut a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece to cover the front of my Whisper White card base.  The sentiment is stamped on a piece of 2 1/2 x  4 1/4 Whisper White and layered on a piece of 2 7/8 x 4 1/4 Old Olive.  I wrapped some Silver Baker’s Twine around the layered piece, tied a bow, and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A few rhinestones added to the center of the flowers and some matching DSP on the envelope and my card was complete.

Stampin Up! announced that due to low inventory Stampin’ Blends will be made unorderable beginning Friday, March 23, noon (MT).  If you started your collection and want to add colors you need to do it today. The Blends will be available again but not until the end of May/beginning of June.  I love coloring with my Blends!  It is so much fun and easy to get the look and feel of an artist!
