Sale-A-Bration Amazing You Free Tutorial

Don’t you just smile from ear to ear when you finish making a card and think…Yes! I love it!  And when that happens can you part with the card?  Be honest! I know it’s not easy but because I’m trying to send more cards this year I’m going to send this card out to some lucky person that comments on my post today.  I’m thinking maybe I should start doing that every day.  What do you think…does that sound like a fun idea?

This was actually my first play with two amazing products in the Sale-A-Bration catalog and I created it for a tutorial co-op I belong to. You can get the Amazing You stamp set Free with a $50 purchase and the and the coordinating Celebrate You Thinlits Dies Free with a $100 purchase.  They work great together or choose your favorite.  Just remember if you want them both, when your order hits $150 you also get Stampin’ Rewards!  Now that’s a lot of free stuff!!

To see all the FREE Sale-A-Bration items you can choose from, including the newest ones that were just released yesterday click here.  But if you need copies of our catalogs on hand to fuel your creativity click here and I’ll make sure to drop them in the mail to you.


  • Stamping your own background paper is easy, fun and keeps you from having to search for the perfect coordinating paper.  Here I stamped the flower image randomly on the whisper white layer with Smokey Slate ink.
  • Black and white always looks great with a pop of color and here I used Bermuda Bay…my favorite color. The Stampin’ Blends give you such vibrant color.  I like to always start light and add layers of color until I like what I see.
  • It’s easy to give your flowers dimension. Stamp and color two flowers, cut the center from one and pop it up with dimensionals on the stamped flower.  More dimension is added on the card by popping up the die cut ‘you’.
  • And I almost forgot…check out the shimmer ribbon.  It’s one of three ribbons in a pack you can get FREE during Sale-A-Bration!

In Need of a Quick Valentine’s Card?

You’re a paper crafter!  You want to give a few handmade cards for Valentine’s Day but you just haven’t gotten around to making them yet!  Does that sound familiar?  Well today I want to share a quick and simple card you can whip up later today and give to a few special people tomorrow.

I used the Sure Do Love You stamp set from the Occasions catalog and the beautiful Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  And even though the paper is gorgeous with all the gold foil it’s still a card you can give to your hubby.

The great thing about this card is that not only is it a quick card to put together but you could use any heart dies or punches you may have on hand.  Pair the 3 hearts with a sweet sentiment of love and voila…you are ready to wish someone a happy Valentine’s Day.

You too can make a love card in minutes just using a couple of hearts and a sweet sentiment.

Take a look at the paper one more time!  If it’s not in your stash you’ll want to order it for sure.  You’ll find lots of uses for different occasions.  The only problem will be actually cutting it.  With the colorful design and awesome gold foil you will be tempted to save it forever! 🙂

New Petal Passion Suite by Stampin’ Up!

Petal Passion Suite gives the look of watercolor and the patterned paper is lovely

Hey!  Busy day at my house today.  Lots of bustling around as I prepare for my Happy Heart Stampers team Christmas party.  It’s tomorrow which only gives me about a day and a half and I still have to decorate the Christmas tree!  I did put together the little gifts I have for them.  I’ll have to show you those soon.  So today’s post…short and sweet!

I wanted to share one of the make and takes we got to make at the Stampin’ Up! convention (Onstage) in November.  I love everything about going to convention…all the new things I learn and being with a couple thousand of my closest friends.  My husband always reminds me that they aren’t ALL my friends but I tell him it feels like it because they all love to do what I love to do…play with pretty paper and ink and share!  And, this is only one of the projects we got to make using the new products that will be in the Occasions Catalog come January 3!

The Petal Passion Designer Series Paper is gorgeous in black and white but guess can add color!

  • I love birds and this cute little one looks as if you just brush stroked him on your paper, as does the sentiments in this beautiful stamp set.  And wait until you see the flowers!  They are gorgeous and give you the opportunity to do some coloring if you would like.
  • Next take a look at the paper.  It’s handpainted watercolor designs in shades of black and white…that you can add color to if you would like.  And yes…I like!!    You can customize all the pretty paper in this pack with your favorite coloring techniques.


  • The New 1/4″ Whisper White Organza Ribbon is so beautiful in person.  A delicate see through ribbon with the whisper white edges.  I know that I will be using lots of this ribbon in future projects.  So versatile in it’s style and how can you go wrong with white!
  • The embellishments that go with this set are lots of fun.  You will have both flowers like in my sample and then there are the leaves that were all gone by the time I sat down to the make and take table.  yes, they were super popular!

All of these products are new in the Occasions Catalog that will go live to customers on January 3, 2018.  But, if you would like to get your hands on the new products early guess what?  You can!  You can add new Occasion catalog products to your $99 Starter Kit!  Plus you get to choose $125 in products for the $99 and your Starter Kit order SHIPS FREE!  And…when you want to order more products you get to order them at a discount!!  If you want to know more about our AWESOME Starter Kit or have any questions at all please contact me.  My email and phone number are at the top of the page or you can text or Facebook message me.  More details and the link to sign up are HERE.

Don’t forget the Year End Sales Event!  There are some great deals plus you don’t want to miss out on any of the retiring products from the Holiday Catalog you meant to order and haven’t yet.  And…I wanted to also remind those of you thinking about the Starter Kit…you can add these items to the kit also.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
