Last Call

Sale-a-Bration ends tonight at MIDNIGHT!!! If you haven’t gotten your absolute favorite items by now, make sure you place your order by then in order to make sure you don’t miss out. Once the clock strikes midnight, the sales are done, the freebies are gone (at least the freebies for Sale-a-Bration) and they won’t be back until next year! I know I will miss the products that are available until then, and hope my favorites will be sticking around long after the sale is over. I’ll post the carry-overs later next week.

Happy Sale-a-brating!

Sale-a-Bration Videos

The creative team at Stampin’ UP! is so creative! The projects they come up with inspire me even in my least creative moments. Here are a couple of videos they put together using some of my favorite Sale-a Bration stamp sets. I hope they inspire you as much as they have inspired me!

Blooming Baskets stamp set is part of the second release. Click here to watch the video done by Shannon over at Stampin’ UP! This is a fun stamp set with lots of flowers and baskets. During Sale-a-Bration, you can get it bundled with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder to up the notch on any project you create using this set. The bundle is a level 2 set with any qualifying purchase of $100 or more.

Bubble Over is another fun stamp set you can get during Sale-a-Bration. I love this set because it is fun not only for adults but for kids as well! With the fun bottle shapes, straws, cute accessories, framelits, and matching paper, it’s easy to create beverage themed cards anyone is sure to love! Click here to check out what Andrea over at Stampin’ UP! has to say about the entire Bubble Over suite.

One of my absolute favorite stamp sets from Sale-a-bration is Heartfelt Blooms. It’s a new style of design, called distinktive, which is a photo realistic type of stamp. There are so many ways to use this stamp set, the list is almost endless. Brandi, from Stampin’ UP!’s home office, shows just a few ways to use this unique stamp. Click here to watch the video to catch the same excitement for Heartfelt Blooms that both Brandi and I have.

If any of these stamp sets sound amazing, or if any of the projects you saw in the videos sparked some new creative ideas, head on over to my store to get your Sale-a-Bration stamp sets before time runs out! Sale-a-Bration ends March 31st! Don’t miss your opportunity to get these stamp sets and supplies because once Sale-a-Bration is over, the stamp sets are gone as well!

Sale-a-Bration Stamps


With Sale-A-Bration coming to an end soon, there is still plenty of time to see projects, such as the card above, that are made with stamp sets that are featured in both the Occasions Catalog as well as in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog (where you get to pick your free stamp sets or free accessories with a minimum $50 order). The card above was created with the Bubble Over stamp set and the matching Bottles and Bubbles Framelits Dies, which are found in the Occasions Catalog. The papers are Tranquil Tide, Very Vanilla, Bubble and Fizz Designer Series Paper (free with a $50 purchase from the Sale-a Bration Catalog), and the Foil Frenzy Paper (from the All Occasions Catalog). I also used Memento Black ink pad, Mini Dimensionals, and the Metallic Enamel Shapes in gold to finish up the card.

My youngest son had a birthday recently so I made a cute gift box and card for him. For those projects, I used the Truly Tailored stamp set and matching True Gentleman Designer Series Paper, which are featured in the Occasions Catalog. I used other items that are found in the Truly Tailored suite as well, such as the True Gentleman Buttons, True Gentleman Cardstock pack, and the Tailored Tag Punch. These items are found on page 45 of the Occasions Catalog. Those items alone come to a total of $72 ($64 if you order the clear mount stamps instead of the wood mount stamps), which qualifies for 1 free $50 Sale-A-Bration item! But hurry because the Sale-A-Bration is only around until March 31st.

Here is the gift box and the card I made for my youngest son.


The gift box was the perfect size to hold a little bottle of his favorite (?) liquor, which at 28, his taste can vary from mom’s at times. Oh well, I guess that’s what happens when kids grow into adults!

Here’s the card, which “explodes” out of its box when it’s opened. It held the other gift, which was a leather key chain I made for him as well.

Both the gift box and the card used the same stamp set, Truly Tailored, and the rest of the items listed above from the Truly Tailored Suite. The remaining items I used to make both projects are Very Vanilla cardstock, Dimensionals, Tranquil Tide ink pad, Multipurpose glue, Big Shot, Linen thread, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Large Letter Framelits, and the Stampin’ Trimmer. I also used the Little Letters Framelits (which are retired) to do some of the lettering on the card.

Welcome to…

March! The month of crazy weather, and the end of Stampin’ UP’s Sale-a-Bration event. This past week has definitely brought some crazy weather to the entire country. Here, where I am, temperatures have gone from 40’s to high 60’s, then crashing back down into the 20’s and 30’s with over 15 inches of snow in one day! I’m hoping this yo-yo weather settles down soon! I want to get out and start enjoying the sunshine again, and I actually like winter LOL!

Sale-a-bration is winding down this month. If there is a set you absolutely adore, or some paper you just can’t live without, but have been pushing it off because “there’s still time because March 31st is so far off”…guess what, it’s quickly approaching! Now is the time to order so you don’t miss your desired SAB supplies…or freebies! Want to join Paper Pumpkin? Preorder your 3,6, or 12 month subscription and earn your SAB supplies for free while you still have time.

Here’s a cute little card made with the Party Pandas stamp set, which you could get free with a $50 purchase now until March 31, 2018.


The other supplies are Lemon Lime Twist, Whisper White, and Rich Razzleberry cardstocks, Light Pool Party, Light and Dark Rich Razzleberry, and Color Remover Alcohol Blends Markers, Basic Pearls, Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, 1/4″ Copper trim, 3/8″ Silver metallic edged ribbon (colored with the blender pens), Basket weave embossing folder, SNAIL adhesive, Mini Glue Dots, Daisy Punch, Dimensionals, and the 1/2″ Circle punch.

Purchasing the supplies for this card alone would get you the stamp set free, OR you could get another item for free, take your pick, but don’t wait too long because Sale-a-bration is ending soon!

Another choice you have is to add these items to your starter kit, since joining now during Sale-a-Bration is a great time to become a demonstrator (either as a business or for the discount). Your starter kit is only $99, but you get $125 worth of merchandise, PLUS 2 additional stamp sets for free!
