I’m a little late in getting this announcement out to you due to some computer issues, but I’ve gotten those resolved and can’t wait to share the news about the new Occasions Catalog and the beginning of Sale-A-Bration (SAB)!  Let’s start with a project first, shall we?


This is a card I created for a swap I participated in recently.  Don’t you think this little chick is adorable?! He is one of three images with coordinating sentiments in the new Honeycomb Happiness stamp set you can earn through SAB. It is intended to be paired with the new Honeycomb Embellishments in the Occasions Catalog, but the images are super cute by themselves as well!


I stamped this little guy in StazOn and colored him using my Aqua Painter and Crushed Curry. Then, to really make him dazzle I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush – this stuff is awesome! It is very similar to the shimmer paint/spritz we used to carry, but you can be much more precise with this product. Love it!!

Here are all the items used to create this project:

I’m sure this made you even more excited about what you’re about to see in these two new catalogs. I hope to share the swaps I receive in return within the next couple of weeks for even more inspiration.  Be sure to check back often!

The New Occasions Catalog is here!


I’ve been so excited for you to get your hands on the new products in the new Occasions Catalog, and now you finally can! The catalog is now available and you can see the entire new product online.

The Sale-A-Bration has begun!


Sale-A-Bration (SAB) is the BEST time of year to earn FREE products!  It comes once a year and is always exciting for customers, hostesses, and demonstrators.  There are 3 amazing ways to benefit from SAB:

Here’s the deal: for every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping), you get a FREE Sale-A-Bration product. That means it’s the perfect time to purchase those products you’ve had your eye on while earning more products for free. 

Need another excuse to get together with friends? Just host a qualifying party with at least $250 in sales during Sale-A-Bration and you’ll earn $25 more Stampin’ Rewards! You can even apply your Stampin’ Rewards toward a Starter Kit and become a demonstrator yourself!

It’s the best time of year to join Stampin’ Up! During Sale-A-Bration, you can become a demonstrator for just $99 and choose $30 more of FREE products for your Starter Kit. Plus, the kit ships for free!

Be sure to note the Sale-A-Bration product choices on pages 16 – 19 are ONLY available through Feb. 15, 2016.

Every month my customers have an opportunity to earn Bonus Blessings.  Here’s how you can participate and what you need to know:

  • When you place a qualifying order and use the monthly Hostess Code, you’ll automatically be added to my Bonus Blessings list.
  • Bonus Blessings are mailed around 2 weeks after the end of the month.
  • Check back monthly for details on the Bonus Blessings gift and qualifying order amount (as it may change each month).
  • Smaller orders may qualify when you place multiple orders throughout the month, using the hostess code, if the combined totals equal or exceed the qualifying order amount.
  • If your order is $150 or more, please omit the hostess code so you can select your Stampin’ Rewards! You will still qualify for my Bonus Blessings program.
  • Limit: one gift per customer per month

Thank you for stopping in!  Before I go, I’ll share one more view of today’s project.  I’ll see you again here at the end of the week with our Fabulous Friday project.
