Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017

It’s that time of year again…. Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017 starts today! And it doesn’t end there – it’s also launch day for the new Spring Summer Catalogue.


If you are familiar with Stampin’ Up! (or indeed a fellow addict like me) then you will know that Sale-a-Bration rewards everyone and is the best promotion of the Stampin’ Up! year. And we have until 31st March to take advantage of it.


For every £45 you spend, you can choose a free item from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue. There are 12 items to choose from, and Stampin’ Up! have promised to add more items in the middle of February. If you order online you will be prompted to add your free items. Don’t forget to use my host code for an additional free gift from me. If your order is £150+ you get to spend the 10% Stampin’ Rewards you’ve earned, in addition to the 3 free Sale-a-Bration items.


There are also extra Stampin’ Rewards to be earned. Host a party with £200+ in sales (or place a £200+ order yourself) and you will earn an extra £20 on top of the usual Stampin’ Rewards. That means that for a £225 order, you would get £25 + £20 Stampin’ Rewards to spend, and you could choose 5 Sale-a-Bration items free!


The best offer of all however is that anyone buying the starter kit during Sale-a-Bration gets to choose an additional 2 stamp sets free. That means that you pay £99 but choose £130 worth of product from the Annual and NEW Spring Summer Catalogues, and then you get to choose another 2 stamp sets on top. You then get the 20% discount and all the Sale-a-Bration rewards with all your own orders. Becoming a demonstrator is one of the best decisions I have made – I have met so many friends and been able to take part in so many amazing events, and I would love to share that with you. If you have questions please get in touch to see if this is the right opportunity for you.

Stampin’ Up! are spoiling us again with another fantastic sale, just in time to get that last minute Christmas crafting done! Who am I kidding – I’ve hardly made a start to everything I need to get done…. there’s still time, right?

And not only are there amazing deals available for the next week, but there’s a 24 hour flash sale today – the special pricing is only available on limited stock, so when they are sold out the deal is gone.

New Stitched Shapes Framelits from Stampin’ Up!

Stitched Shape Framelits

Not only have Stampin’ Up! made a new product available ahead of when they were due to launch in next year’s annual catalogue (so that’s a whole 7 months early!) but they’ve also given us 25% off stamp sets which coordinate with these new dies.

I’ve wanted to create a stitched border effect on some of my die cut shapes on many occasions, and while it’s fine to take out a paper piercer, it is often painstaking work (not to mention if you manage to pierce yourself by mistake….). These new dies do the hard work for you and create a delicate stitched effect border within cut ovals, circles and squares in very useful sizes.

I’ve just added them to my next order – will you?


Celebrating World Card Making Day 2016

World card making day 2016 blog hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop for World Card Making Day 2016 using current Stampin’ Up!® products. You are currently with Catherine Carroll in the UK and there are so many other demonstrators sharing lovely projects for your inspiration today! There is a list at the end of the page which will help you to move along from blog to blog.

On my to make list for this week were my September thank you cards. I’ve also had Totally Trees on my desk for a while, so the two seemed meant to go together! It’s really feeling like Autumn here in the UK now (and it’s about time really), so I also reached for the Petals and Paisleys Specialty DSP as the colour combination is just perfect.

Mint Macaron Totally Trees

For quick and easy crafting, you can’t beat the note cards and envelopes. I was also really pleased to see the 3/8″ Ribbon Trio pack in the Petals and Paisleys suite. I have to admit that I would never have bought Delightful Dijon ribbon on its own, but having it along with Mint Macaron and Rich Razzleberry makes it really easy to coordinate with the DSP.

Totally Trees thank you cards

Of course I also wanted to include a little treat for my customers – something to keep them going when they start using their new goodies. I made a little diaper fold treat pouch from a 6″x6″ piece of DSP, which was just the right size for a Lotus caramelised biscuit packet.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and I hope you like my projects. Keep hopping through the list as there are more amazing ideas waiting for you. Dawn Olcheflske is your next stop (and I’m a teeny bit starstruck that I get to send you to her wonderful blog….)!
