Sale-A-Brating the Occasions Catalog

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE Sale-A-Bration and our 2017 Occasions Catalog!


If you’d like to see what’s inside these amazing catalogs, click on the catalog image.


Is the biggest promotion of the year and it’s a great time to BUY and BE a Stampin’ Up! Hostess.  Here is how it works:

  • For every $50 in merchandise you buy from January 4- March 31, 2017, you will earn a free Sale-A-Bration Product.  With a brochure full, I am sure you have chosen your favorites.  And unlike any year I’ve experienced, the product coordinates back to to product in the Occasions 2017 catalog.

For example, the Lift Me Up Bundle on page 10 of the Occasions catalog works perfectly with the Carried Away Designer Series Paper (143608) on page 7 of the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. And with the bundle pricing, you will earn the paper for FREE!

The Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper follows the trend of adult coloring books, with 4 sheets of each design you won’t mind cutting and piecing to create one of kind cards, scrapbook pages and 3D projects. Pair with our new Watercolor Pencils (141709) Occasions Catalog pg 24 and a pack of Blender Pens (102845 in AC pg. 180) or Aqua Painters (103954 in AC pg. 180) , and you’ve got the perfect dose of color therapy! Ahhhh….


  • As a Hostess, when your total party sales reach $250, you earn $25 more in hostess rewards.  So that means you earn $50 in hostess rewards at a $250 party.
    • What if you place an individual order for $250, do you get the same Sampin’ Rewards as if you were hosting a party?  YES!! + 5 choices of Sale-A-Bration products.  BUT.… have you considered this:
    • When you purchase a Standard Starter Kit for $99, you will choose up to $125 worth of product and during Sale-A-Bration, you will have a choice of TWO FREE STAMP SETS that’s an added value of up to $104. You then can place your own orders, and get up to a 25% discount on future orders and earn Sale-A-Bration product (until March 31, 2017) and hostess rewards on your own personal orders.  No risk guarantee.  You will also join my community of SUthern INKspressions Demonstrators.

  • As a Hostess, when your total party sales reach $450, you earn $25 more in Stampin’ Rewards, which means you earn $88 in Stampin’ Rewards + a choice of 1 item at 50% off*. *Stampin’ Rewards cannot be used towards a 50% item.

Enjoy the catalogs and place your order in my online store today!

Thank you…

Leadership Gallery

Build A Cupcake Punch Stampin' Up!

Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference in Nashville was all that it was suppose to be.  A creative outlet for all the demonstrators in attendance. ALWAYS a “WOW”, and ALWAYS INSPIRING!

 There was a gallery of “framed” accessories that now I wish I had taken more photos of, but this was one of my favorites.  Would you have thought you can make a work of art out of wire and a Build a Cupcake Punch (121807 Occasions Mini Catalog), and Cardstock? The concept artists even covered the mat with the new First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper (121878 Occasions Mini Catalog).  This Designer Series Paper is a fun new weight, 24 sheets total; 4 ea. of 6 double sided designs and will remind you of a page right out of your reference books.  It is the perfect weight to use as paper-mache, wrap small gifts (12 x 12 paper) or as a layering tool for cards or scrapbook pages.

Look at this!  Using the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die (121812 Occasions Mini Catalog) and your Big Shot, and Whisper White Cardstock you can make a beautiful piece of art. I look forward to sharing with you many card designs using this Fun Flowers Bigz Die, but wanted to share with you an alternate use.

Stampin' Up! Beveled Windowpanes

This display highlighted the new Beveled Windowpanes (121881 Occasions Mini Catalog).  I will be featuring these at the February stamping events. The Clearly for You Stamp Set (121911 wood, or 121976 clear mount) is a perfect pair with the Beveled Windowpanes.  Many of the images are sized for all three of the windowpanes.  This was one of the many items we received at Leadership Conference.  I look forward to sharing some of my creations with you in the coming month.  Note the art to the left in the picture above, but one I wish I had taken a full shot of, the trinket heart!  Another fun new accessory in the Occasions Mini Catalog..the trinket keys (121892) and crowns (121891) and Simply Adorned Baubles (variety of types).

I hope you enjoyed your gallery tour from Leadership Conference!  I would love to share the opportunity to experience this conference in San Antonio next January or even Convention in Salt Lake City in July with you.  Visit the Join my team section for more details and contact me with any questions you may have.

Surprise…Stamping Ideas at a glance

Saturday, September 4th, 2010

Are you ready to put your cameras away, and let me do the work for you?!  For all of you who love to bring your camera to The Stamp House, I hope this will be an extra resource for you to use and invite your friends to use.  The blog will also allow me to share photos from events I attend as a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator.

This is a fun display from the Sweet Shoppe from the Stampin’ Up! Convention 2010.  This display was loaded with incredible ideas, and one of the main reasons why I’d love you to join me as a demonstrator at Convention 2011.  No pictures can describe the WOW! you get from the incredible creativity of the Stampin’ Up! concept artists!!  Click here for more information and check out this extra special craft tote if you sign up between now and October 18.

The display used the fun colors inspired by the new Celebrations Designer Series Paper (117164) and coordinating Quick Accents (118708).  The Surprise banner was  made with the Party Banner die cut letters (118718) and to make the party complete you can always add the Party Hats (118716). Remember you can shop 24/7 on my online store.
