Sale-a-Bration is the BEST time to get your Starter Kit

Want a super great deal?  Purchase a Starter Kit during Sale-a-Bration (January 3- March 31)!

There are two options for the Starter Kit:

  1.   For $99 (with FREE shipping) you get to choose $175 worth of products.  Stampin' Up! will also give you a free Paper Pumpkin kit and other supplies, bringing the value of your kit to over $200.  Fantastic Deal!
  2.   For $129 (with FREE shipping) you get to choose $175 worth of products PLUS you'll get the Craft & Carry Tote!  And you also get the other free products, bringing the value of your kit to over $250!  Now, that's a really great deal!

I love my tote and it holds a huge amount!  After Sale-a-Bration, this tote will be unavailable.

Here are some FAQ's about the SAB Starter kit:

  • You do not get SAB free items with the purchase of the kit.  Join early and then place another order to get rewards PLUS get 20% off your order and all future orders.
  • There is no further obligation after purchasing your kit.  You don't have to hold parties, have classes, do videos or anything else--UNLESS you want to do so!
  • Curious about the minimums needed to remain a Stampin' Up! demonstrator?  It's $300 a quarter (but with your discount, you'd only have to order $240 over that time) and joining during SAB, you'll have until the end of June to meet that minimum!  (The new annual catalog will be available to order in May for demonstrators)
  • Want to earn extra money and make this a business?  You can do that!  Sale-a-Bration is a great time to start your Stampin' Up! business
  • Wondering about what kind of support you'll get?  My upline, Jessica Taylor, (one of the top demonstrators in the world) and I provide all kinds of training and support.  There are videos, FB lives, emails, a demonstrator only FB group, FB groups for Jessica's downline and my downline, and phone support.  You'll be joining a great group who also help provide support.  This is a wonderful way to meet new people and join the Stampin' Up! family.  Stampin' Up! also is a huge resource.
  • With each order placed (whether by you, your friends, your family, or other customers) you earn flex points.  Flex points can be used to purchase free products and purchase the yearly incentive trip.  The trip for 2020 is Maui!  An all-expense paid trip (including airfare) for two.  You also receive 20% on all orders placed with you.

I am so hoping to earn that trip to Maui! 

I can't wait to see what this year holds for me and my team.  I would absolutely love to have you join my team and explore all that Stampin' Up! has to offer!

Sale-a-Bration is Coming Soon!

Sale-a-Bration arrives January 3.  Do you know how you can get FREE products from the Sale-a-Bration (SAB) brochure?

With every $50 in product that you order you can choose FREE products from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  So if you placed a $100 order (before taxes and shipping), you'd receive either 2 free Level 1 SAB items or 1 Level 2 item.  A $150 order would net you 3 free items PLUS host benefits of $15.  If you order $250, you'd receive 5 items PLUS host rewards of $25 and during SAB, you receive an additional $25--so you'd get 5 free SAB items PLUS an additional $50 to spend any way you please!  How great is this?  Can't place an order that large by yourself?  Gather some friends and put your orders together to reach that threshold!  I can make it easy for you with your very own host code!

Pre-paid Paper Pumpkin subscriptions are another great way to reach SAB rewards (I do this myself to get more free product!

  • A 3-month prepaid subscription costs $57 and you will get 1 FREE SAB item!
  • A 6-month prepaid subscription costs $108 (you save $1 on each kit) and you'll get 2 FREE SAB items!
  • The best deal is on a 12-month prepaid subscription at $209 (you basically are paying for 11 and getting the 12th kit free) plus you'll receive 4 SAB items.  Add a few small items to that order and you'll reach that $250 threshold to receive the 5 items and $50 in Stampin' Rewards!  Need ideas on what will go well with that order?  How about some different sized clear blocks, a Stampin' Shammy, additional cardstock, the Take Your Pick tool, paper snips, a Stampin' Trimmer?  You just need to add $41 to that order to get to the special SAB rewards!

One very important thing to know about prepaid subscriptions--Stampin' Up! will email you an activation code.  You will need to go to and enter your code after setting up your account (they will ask for a credit card but your card won't be charged since you purchased a prepaid subscription).  Activate your subscription before the 10th of the month and you'll receive that month's kit as your first kit.

New subscribers to Paper Pumpkin get a free clear block in their very first kit.  Thereafter your kits will include everything you need to complete the kit--at least one ink spot, exclusive stamps, die cuts, embellishments, glue dots or dimensionals!  These kits are a great way to create easy products that are already designed for you.  You can, of course, make them any way that you choose.  I get two kits each month so usually make one kit as designed and make alternative projects with the second.  Most kits are card kits but there are some other projects.  Stampin' Up! is now giving us hints so if you think you won't want that month's kit, you can always put your subscription on hold for that month (Don't forget to go back before the 10th of the next month and start it back up).

While there is the new Occasions catalog that starts also on January 3, don't forget that any product you order qualifies (clearance rack, annual catalog, Occasions) for Sale-a-Bration rewards.

Sale-a-Bration ends on March 31 so don't let these FREE products pass you by!

Signs of Santa Gift Card Holder/Money Holder

I needed some gift card holders and some money holders for my family because I give all the adults cash so they can get just what they want.  As soon as I saw the Santa's Signs stamp set and the matching Designer Series Paper, I knew they would be perfect for gift card holders.

To make the money holder:


  • Whisper White Thick, 6-1/4" x 9-3/8", scored at 3-1/2" and 7"
  • Poppy Parade, 6" x 3-1/4"
  • Whisper White scraps for the sentiment
  • Poppy Parade Scrap for the scalloped oval

I stamped the sentiment on the front in Poppy Parade and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Dies (Oval) and backed it with the poppy parade scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Dies.  I cut a slice off the top of the inside piece to create a pocket and then used Tear & Tape to hold the long side together.   I stamped the inside sentiment from Signs of Santa and the "Happiest Christmas Wishes" comes from the Dashing Deer stamp set. 

And the Gift Card Holder:


  • Poppy Parade, 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2 and 9
  • Whisper White, 4" x 5-1/4"
  • Scraps of Whisper White for the sentiments
  • Scrap of Poppy Parade for the scalloped circle

For the front, I first cut the Designer Series paper 3-1/4" x 4" and adhered to the front piece. I stamped the sentiment in Poppy Parade on whisper white and punched out with the 1-1/2" Circle Punch.  I backed that with the Poppy Parade Scalloped Circle and put on the card with dimensionals.  

For the inside,  I cut a piece of the DSP to fit the pocket front (4" x 2-1/4") and adhered it.  Using the 1" circle punch, punch out half of a circle to make it easier to get the gift card out. I used Tear & Tape on each side to create the pocket.  The sentiment for this part of the card comes from the retired BYOP set--this set is ideal for gift cards and was designed for that purpose.  I stamped them on whisper white and die cut them with the new Rectangle Stitched Dies (#148551) from the Occasions catalog.  The "Ho Ho Ho" comes from the Labels to Love Stamp Set and was stamped on the far right side of the inside.  I left plenty of space to write a note and it will be hidden from view when the card is closed.

These money/gift card holders are really easy to make and you can use whatever pretty paper or stamp set you have for whatever occasion!

Craft & Carry Bag for the Stamparatus

Now available for purchase is this cute Craft & Carry Bag for your Stamparatus.  


The Stamparatus is really the best stamping tool out there!  I know because I have several of the others (purchased before Stampin' Up! brought out the Stamparatus) and they simply don't compare.  Being able to use both sides of the stamping plates and being able to move them to different settings to stamp makes this tool really versatile.  I really love how I can set mine up with several stamps and not have to change them when I am making multiples of a card.  And if I don't ink up my stamp enough and don't get a clear image, I can ink it up again and stamp over and over until I am satisfied with my image.  No more halo images!

Don't have a Stamparatus yet?  Now's a great time to ask Santa for one!  You can get one bundled with the bag.  And don't forget to add the accessories!
