Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek

I just couldn't wait any longer to show you this super cute Stampin' Up! Sale-A- Bration set called Hello Cupcake.  The Sale-A-bration brochure included this card in the brochure as a sample and I just had to make my own version with this fun stamp set.  You'll see all of these free selections for Sale-a-bration when you receive the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs, which will show up in your mail box towards the end of December if you're a customer of mine. If don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and you need the upcoming catalogs, just let me know.   

Hello Cupcake stamp set, a free selection from the Sale-A-Bration
brochure with a US$50 order beginning January 3, 2019

Sale-A-Bration is a special sale Stampin' Up! holds during Jan - Feb - March, where each $50 or $100 purchase earns you free selections from Sale-A-Bration merchandise from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure, shown below.  I'm in love with this cute cupcake set, and it was one of my first selections from when demonstrators could begin placing pre-order.      

I used a basecard of Gorgeous Grape, then another layer of Gorgeous Grape which I stamped with a sentiment from this stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  Then I added a layer of Highland Heather cardstock which I used for the base of my cupcake image.    

I stamped the base of the cupcake in Soft Suede, the first cupcake layer in Gorgeous Grape, then another cupcake layer in Grapefruit Grove, and the top layer is stamped in Coastal Cabana.  The heart is stamped in Lovely Lipstick.  Then I fussy cut each of these images, and layered them together. 

The sentiment is stamped on Vellum cardstock so that the cupcake beneith it would show through.  It is punched out with a 1-3/4" punch.  To hide the mini dimensionals used to pop up the sentiment, I added two Gorgeous Grape Glitter Enamel Dots.  Looks good enough to eat!

Organize your 2019 for Maximum Productivity

If you are still looking for a Christmas gift for yourself or a crafty friend, the Love Today Planner from the clearance rack will stretch your holiday dollars.    You Planner won't arrive by Christmas, but you'll have your Planner in time to begin your 2019, and you'll love that you can customize your planner with your stamps, stickers, die cuts, and photos, while planning to achieve your goals more easily than ever.   

Organize your time.  Spend it with purpose

Focus on the goals you care about.  List reminders for your greeting card needs each month, schedule your blog posts, Facebook videos, and stamping dates along with all of your ideas, goals, tasks, and every-day to-dos -- track everything in one place. 

Treat yourself or a loved one, your Mom, Coworkers, BFFs and siblings to this organization essential for 2019.  A perfect gift for yourself or someone on your list.  No dates are printed so your can start using the Love Today Planner anytime you want.  Pick up several and you can use them as gifts throughout the year!     

No dates printed.  Start using anytime.  Besure to pick up a refill

Decorate your notes pages or the 4 photo protector pages as a vision board.  Visualizaiton is one of the most powerful tools you can use to help you achieve your goals. Stamp or write your dates, then create healthy habits and track your daily and weekly to-dos, including your craft time, daily water intake, steps achieved, and hours slept.  Do life differently in 2019 with a planner that's going to help you stay organized.      

Make it your own.  Plan goals that matter.  Organize your time

While you're on the clearance page, pick up a refill for your Planner to extend the value of your initial purchase.  Again, because the pages aren't printed with dates, you'll be able to start using your refill at any time.  You'll love the flexibility to create the look you love with enough free space to make it your own.  Use your dies cuts to add snowflakes in January, hearts in February, bunnies in March, etc, then in April, stamp your pages with flowers and other fun images for your future months.  Spend your valuable time on what's meaningful to you

You'll want to know which Holiday Catalog items will carry over after January 2. Download a pdf copy of the Holiday carryover list here.  Pay particular attention to the bundles in the current Holiday catalog that you're thinking about purchasing for next year.  Buy them before January 2, because the bundle price -- a 10% savings -- goes away on January 2.  You'll still be able to purchase these carryover items after January 2, but you'll no longer get the 10% savings for purchasing them as a bundle.  

Stretch your holiday budget by purchasing discounted merchandise now, while supplies last.  A few surplus items from the annual catalog are also included in this sale.    

This is also a great time to pick up your retiring favorites from the Holiday catalog that will go away January 2.
