cards, Sale-A-Bration


I can’t believe how quickly the past few months have gone with Sale-A-Bration.  There has been so many great products that are going to be sadly missed.  What has been your favourite???  I have already mentioned a few of my favourites with ‘Lotus Blossom’ and ‘Big Day’.  Then we had some fantastic new additions. Sadly not much time to play with them but the papers were gorgeous.

Here are some projects to share with you courtesy of Stampin’ Up! I don’t know who the original creators are so I do apologise but these showcase some of the gorgeous products we have enjoyed during Sale-A-Bration.

So have you got your free Sale-A-Bration products yet?? You only have hours to go, so make sure you get them in to your Demonstrator.  I will be adding my last orders in a few hours time so be quick!! I can ship anywhere in Australia.

Tomorrow is another day with a great new special and we can look at the Occasions Catalogue which has been a little neglected lately.

Thanks for visiting,


cards, Classes, Techniques

Here are the cards we will make plus a sample for you to keep.


Look forward to seeing you.  🙂





I can show you this card now.  I made this last week for one of my customers who are going through a hard time at the moment.  I just wanted to let her know I was thinking of her.



The layout was inspired by a card on Pinterest.  I used the Free Sale-A-Bration set ‘Lotus Blossom’ that you have probably seen everywhere on the internet.  This is a 3 step stamp set. I have used Lost Lagoon for the first 2 stamps in the set and then Pool Party for the 3rd stamp. The stem and greeting are stamped in Baked Brown Sugar.The greeting is from the ‘Wetlands’ set.  I then cut the piece with one of the Oval Framelits. A sheet from the Moonlight paper stack was cut with the Hexagon Hive Framelit.  The card base is Lost Lagoon.  When it was assembled I thought it lacked something even after adding a White Baker’s Twine bow.  I flagged the end of a little of the Burlap ribbon and tucked it under the oval.  That just seemed to “pop” the card then.

I think she might have liked it.  🙂

Thanks for stopping by to visit me.

Occasion header

So many wonderful new products for many different events coming up in the next few months – Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day (OK they are great for male cards).  There are also great sets for Birthdays, Thinking of you, Sympathy.  You have to check it out!

One advantage of being a demonstrator, you can get hold of the products early and have a play.  I have had a great time already. I will be showing you some of these projects over the coming days and weeks.  I wanted to show you this one today.


I was inspired by another card I found on Pinterest using a different stamp set.  They were quick cards to make to send out randomly this week to some people. 🙂  This is using the very lovely stamp set ‘Lotus Blossom’ that is a Sale-A-Bration set –  which means you can get this for FREE!!! I think this is going to be a very popular choice.  The colours I have used here are Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder; and Calypso Coral and Crisp Canteloupe.

HOW do you get these for free might you ask??

SAB shop

Spend $90 on any Stampin’ Up! Catalogue products between now and 31st March and you can choose any product in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue as your free choice. There are so many options for so many different tastes.  (Psst! It will be hard to just choose one you know!!!).

OR, why not get extra freebies???

SAB Host

Host a party.  When your sales reach $400 you get an extra $40 to spend.

This is on top of the already great Hostess rewards. For example, normally for a $400 party you would get $60, during Sale-A-bration you can now choose $100. (What would you choose for $100 of free products???).  Now a party doesn’t have to be all your friends together in one place at a time, you can have a catalogue party.  Pass the catalogues around to your friends/family/neighbours and collect your orders.  When you reach $400 you still get the extra rewards – but hey! You miss out on me showing you some great projects. 😦
