Final Days to Sale-a-Brate

You aren’t imagining things: Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration is a little shorter this year…but don’t worry: There will be 2nd Sale-a-Bration in July and August, with all NEW (limited time) products to earn! That means you only have 3 days left to snag the wonderful freebies from the current event, because it ends February 28th. I’ll share a few of the SAB products I’ve been crafting with:

Darling Donkeys has been neck-and-neck with Berry Blessings for most popular Sale-a-Bration stamp set! Do you have this one yet? I layered him on an embossed piece of vellum for a fabulous birthday card.

When you find a card pattern that will work with all of your Designer Series Paper, make a big STACK of them! That’s what I did with the Flower & Field DSP and used this card for swapping at our recent StampFest events. It’s an inexpensive card, since the paper was free!

Finally, this was ONE of the cards I demonstrated in my Lunchtime Live Crafting on my FB page this past Monday showcasing The Touch of Ink stamp set and the Oh, So Ombre paper …with plain and patterned paper that will pair well with any stamp, it’s a great choice to expand your choices for projects with Bermuda Bay, Rococo Rose, Granny Apple Green or Blackberry Bliss (shown). Be sure to watch the video to see the other projects I demonstrated!

Now RUN (don’t walk) to get your order in before February 28th so you can choose a free Sale-a-Bration reward (like one of these) with each $50 you add to your cart before they are gone forever!

Hey, Chick~ The Return!


Hey Chick Release


Remember way back during Sale-A-Bration 2017 when the Hey Chick Stamp Set was a Sale-a- Bration reward?  We were blown away by how much everyone loved it! We decided to bring those same chicks back: Both the original birds and in their new Hey, Birthday Chick stamp set…and added dies for ALL OF THEM!

You’ll find excuses to use these feathered-friends in your crafting all the time, even while “cooped” up during the winter. Mix and match both sets for maximum eggs-citment!

Valentines, Kawaii-Style

The SpendLOVE family sends cards in February (for obvious reasons) and this year Cody and I stamped, cut, embossed and mailed 192 of these adorable greeting cards (with a little help from my mom):

Our son taught us that in Japan, the “culture of cuteness” is called Kawaii: When something (a human or object) is adorable in a charming, shy or childlike way. I think these frozen treats fit the Kawaii description, don’t you?

It’s a labor of love to send these cards (which include a photo of our family and a short newsletter) and as we address the envelopes, we remember our family and friends with gratitude.

New at SU! Darling Donkeys for Sale-a-Bration

We are more than halfway through the first Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration of 2021 (yes, there will be TWO this year) and the New at SU! group of international demonstrators want to make sure you can use the products you choose FREE (with your qualifying order) in simple, sensational and innovative ways! As you hop through our February event, tell us what you are inspired to try in your stamping studio.

The Darling Donkeys stamp set is one product you could choose free with a $50 purchase through February, and I imagined a vibrant In-Color card would be perfect to celebrate a birthday:

Starting with strips of the In-Color 2020-2022 colors on a piece of white card stock, I cut out the letters using the Playful Alphabet dies and then glued it to a card base. Then I looked at the letters I had cut out and thought perhaps I should make a second card with them:

That little donkey is just ready to cut loose and celebrate, isn’t he! He’s colored with Stampin’ Blends and I was tickled I could create a Twofer card (two-for-one).

Which do you like best?

The supplies I used are listed below, and kick up YOUR heels as you head over to Tricia’s site to see what she’s creating with the Approaching Perfection Sale-a-Bration stamp set.

Hey, Birthday Chick: 3-for-Free!

Remember the Hey, Chick stamp set from Sale-a-Bration a few years back? They were the “must-have” set of the year and those same chicks are BACK (and ready to PARTY!) in the January-June mini catalog. It’s fitting that my February 2021 3-for-Free class features the new Hey, Birthday Chick! bundle:

In addition to their new stamp set, the original set is available AGAIN – ICYMI – and there are coordinating dies to keep them farm-fresh. “CHICK” out what all the cluck is about HERE!

Starting off with a simple card, I created this one on my Facebook page last Monday:

There is also an edited version of the how-to video on YouTube:

When you order the Hey, Birthday Chick bundle from my Stampin’ Store in February, you’ll receive a tutorial for 3 projects via email with the paper goods to make those projects coming to you in the mail.

Supplies you will also need to complete the 3-for-Free projects:

Open the container carefully and consider storing the leafing in a larger storage container with a lid. This makes the leafing easier to use and also easier to return excess leafing once done.

A BURST of Berries!

This card is EXPLODING with blackberries and it couldn’t be sweeter (unless they were real blackberries):

It was created with my FAVORITE Sale-a-Bration 2021 product: The Berry Blessing Bundle is a stamp set AND matching Designer Series Paper that you can choose FREE with a $100 order during January-February… PLUS it coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry bundle (my January set of the month).

When you open the card, the pops open! It’s very simple to make and I created a video tutorial (taken from a live video on my CJBL Facebook page today) so you can make your own:

Birthday Chick All Wired Up

I miss my chickens.

Consoling myself with stamped chickens is (only) slightly less messy and time consuming, but there aren’t any delicious eggs to look forward to. It’s all good though, because these hens from the Birthday Chick stamp set make me laugh as much as the live versions did!

This greeting card started with the TGIF Challenge on Friday to use our background stamps: The All Wired Up background had been on my mind since the chicks arrived!

By using the new Blending Brushes to add a little extra Granny Apple Green ink at the bottom of the background, it added on Ombre element that helps Chunky Clucky really pop off as the focal point!

You may be asking…where did the picket fence come from? Did you fussy cut Chunky Clucky? Well, my friends, I have good news for you: On February 2nd, customers will be able to order coordinating dies (and that’s not all, so stay tuned)!

New at SU!~ Treasures of Life

Welcome to our January 2021 NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who LOVE sharing Stampin’ Up! paper crafting ideas with you, and today that love takes center stage with all the 💚🧡 HEARTS ❤️💜

I chose the Treasures of Life stamp set to use for this card~ this image of the granddaughter with her grandfather reminds me so much of my husband’s tenderness with his grandchildren, and it makes me fall in love with him in ways deeper than I had ever imagined:

The card uses the Oh, So Ombre Designer Series Paper that you could choose FREE during Sale-a-Bration (January-February 2021) with a $50 order. Coloring in the image with the Stampin’ Blends was a lovely way to make the people come to life!

This fun fold card base is 4.25″ x 11″, scored at 1.5″ and 7″, and there is a tender message on the inside from the stamp set, as well.

As you hop along, leave us a comment to tell us what you like so we can continue to share what you love! You can order the supplies to create our projects from your demonstrator, or if you don’t have a demonstrator, choose one of us (in your country) and we’ll be happy to help you get started!

All the supplies for this project are listed below, and when you are ready, you can move to Nicole’s project…

Sweet Strawberry: 3 for Free

I have a thing for FRUIT (Creative JUICE, after all) and I love a coordinating punch, so it comes as no surprise that the FIRST thing on my list from the January-June Catalog was the SWEET STRAWBERRY bundle:

Stampin’ Up! made it SWEETER when they offered the Berry Blessings Bundle as a FREE choice during Sale-a-Bration for a $100 order…a coordinating stamp set to my beloved strawberries AND matching Designer Series Paper? YES THANK YOU!

Naturally, I’ve been playing with it night and day since I got it. I dream about berries! Yesterday, I made this card so I could see both sides of the Designer Series Paper and you can watch the tutorial to make your own version.

If you are as obsessed with these beautiful berries as I am, you’ll be happy to know that the Sweet Strawberry bundles is my 3 for Free kit in January 2021: When you order the bundle from my stampin’ store, I’ll send you the consumable supplies to create 3 projects with your new bundle ~OR~ you can come to my JAM-BERRY class in Utah County on January 23rd and stamp your projects in person with me for free!)

You will need a few items on hand to complete the projects. These items will not be included in the kit:

  • Ink Pads: Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Real Red, Garden Green, Granny Apple Green, Tuxedo Black Memento, Whisper White Craft ink -OR- Versamark pad.
  • Heat Tool
  • White Emboss Powder

If the Sweet Strawberry bundle is on your list for “later”, move it to the top so you can take advantage of the opportunity to get the Berry Blessings bundle during Sale-a-Bration AND my 3 for Free projects!
