You Made my Day -Don’t let Sale-a-bration pass you by

March 31st is coming up quickly and with it the end of our Sale-a-bration promotion!  Don’t let it pass you by! 

Here is a little pocket card I made a few weeks ago. 


I used Early Espresso card stock to create the pocket card. On the front a piece of designer paper and a tag made with sale-a-bration products. On the inside a piece of whisper white card stock stamped with hearts and doodled with a marker. 


Write your message on the card and slip it in the the pocket card. 

Be sure to order before time runs out. One free item for each $50 in product that you order.   


Think Spring with a cute Berry Basket

I’m guessing many people are ready for spring.  I know I am so let’s think spring for a while.

I combined two new products from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog with the Gold Soiree Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog to create a cut spring feeling Berry Basket.

butterfly-berry-basketThe new Berry Basket Die is so cute and easy to put together.  You need to cut the card stock twice – I used Crumb Cake for this basket and the scalloped strip for the edge.  The plain strip I used for the handle.  The scalloped edge makes it easy to line the sides up evenly when you staple everything together.

For my basket I decided to add a liner using the Gold Soiree Designer Series Specialty paper.  I cut two pieces of the main portion of the basket.  Each one was glued to the inside of the Crumb Cake basket pieces.  If you don’t want to see staples on the inside of the basket then don’t adhere the designer paper to the inside edges until after you staple the scalloped band around the edges.

butterfly-berry-basket3To decorate my berry basket I added die cut butterflies!  I love the new Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  I cut two for the basket – the large butterfly is Gold Foil card stock and the medium butterfly is Calypso Coral card stock.  When I cut mine I always use a piece of wax paper between my card stock and the die to help it release.  The butterflies are stapled on to the handle.  I used a Calypso Coral button from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack – it’s free during Sale-A-Bration.

butterfly-berry-basket2My Stamper’s Club Members got to make this basket at our February meeting and then my team members got to make it at my February PAWS team meeting.  Everyone had different prints from the Gold Soiree Designer Paper for their liners.  I hope this cute project makes you thing of spring!

Tiny Treat Boxes

One of the new products that I really liked from the Holiday Catalog were the Tiny Treat Boxes.  They are big enough to put a fun treat in but not so big that you have to put too much in it for it to look full.  And I was so excited to see that they were still available in the new Occasions Catalog!

I used them last month to make little treats for my downline, sidelines and friends that came to the Stampin’ Up! Catalog Kickoff event.  I filled them with a little treat and decorated them with a piece of Designer Paper, ribbon and a cute tag.  I forgot to take a picture before the event so this one was taken inside the restaurant where we met for dinner – it wasn’t the best lighting.

kickoff-treatThe kickoff event was a lot of fun.  They showed a live streaming of the Stampin’ Up! staff at the movie theater so that everyone all over the country could see the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration catalogs at the same time.  They even had prize patrol!  And then an all attendee give away!  I didn’t win a prize patrol but several of my friends did.  Actually most of the people that rode in my car were winners – Becky, Beth, Linda and Ginny won – and so did Jan.

catalog-kickoffI’m hoping that SU does this same type of event for the new annual catalog when it comes out later this year.  It’s a demonstrator only event – and if you want to be part of it then be sure to join my team.  Joining right now during Sale-A-Bration will get you additional rewards – the starter kit is $99 – which includes $125 worth of product plus during Sale-A-Bration you get to choose between two FREE product options:

You Brighten My Day House

If you follow my business Facebook Page you may have seen a photo I posted a couple of weeks ago that looked like this.

sab-godiva-swap-partsThese are the parts for a swap card that I was working on.  I’m in a group that swaps with every new catalog.  We each design a card and make as many as are in the swap.  Then we mail them all to the coordinator and she sorts them for us and mails everyone back a set that includes all the different cards.  It’s fun to see all the different ideas that everyone comes up with and gives me a bunch of samples to put out at my classes.  So are you ready to see my card creation from the parts above?

sab-godiva-swapI thought it was a sweet little card for someone moving into a new house or even just some newlyweds.  I love that the little house stamp fits inside the arrow of the What’s Up punch!  And you can add the little row of hearts to the house if you want – it is a separate stamp in the set.  I used Blendabilities Markers to color the house.  Did you know you can choose the Blendabilities Markers for FREE during Sale-A-Bration.  And this stamp set is also a free choice and so is the Designer Paper that I used.  Below is a full list of all the supplies.
