Final Days of Sale-A-Bration

My how time flies – Sale-A-Bration ends March 31st!  I have a suggestion for you today.



Many of the coordinating 2016-2018 In Color products (ink, card stock, ribbon, designer series paper) will retire as of June first (when the 2018-2019 annual catalog begins) and will be on the Retiring Products List in April (date to be determined).   In the past, retiring In Color products have sold out very quickly (and forever) once they hit the retiring product list (April).  


Why not get the benefit of stocking up on your favorite colors AND earning free gifts, too?  During Sale-A-Bration, each order of $50 (before tax/shipping) earns you a free Sale-A-Bration item!  AND you’ll be assured of having those colors for your future stamping.


IMPORTANT TO NOTE:  Stampin’ Up! has the option to keep or bring back any of these colors and products if they do an update of the core color collections.  However, purchasing them now, while they are in stock, is the only SURE THING!

Click HERE to view all of the 2016-18 In Color Products.

Also, all designer series papers that contain In Colors will definitely retire.
Of course, you’ll also earn my Free Monthly Gift Bundle in addition to your free Sale-A-Bration gifts. The Free Monthly Gift Bundle comes directly from me and is not a Stampin’ Up! promotion.

To place a qualifying Stampin’ Up! order to take advantage of this month’s free gift, click HERE to go to my Online Store and add the Host Code GFNYPJTZ to your Shopping Cart. You’ll find the place to enter it in the lower left-hand corner of the Shopping Cart (not at checkout, just the Shopping Cart).


It’s as easy as that!  I’ll receive notification of your purchase and will then send you an email confirming that your Free Gift Bundle will be mailed to you at no cost!

Love & Affection with Playful Palette – FINAL day to order retiring products

Love and Affection 1



This is a terrific card layout to show off Stampin’ Up!’s pretty new designer paper.  This packet is called Playful Palette and contains 3 of the 5 new 2016-18 In Colors.  Featured here is Peekaboo Peach.  I love how this pretty color pairs with Old Olive and Basic Black.

  • I’ve also used the brand new stamp set called Love & Affection to stamp the flower and sentiment.  I’ve stamped the flower in Basic Black Ink on Watercolor Paper and used an Aqua Painter and Peekaboo Peach stamp pad to color in the image.  Then I added the leaves stamped in Old Olive.
  • The center of the flower is a medium Perfect White Accent colored in with a black Sharpie.  Just be sure to color it in off the card and let it dry before moving it to the card front.
  • I created the circles by punching the Watercolor Paper with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and then the Basic Black Cardstock is cut with the Circle Framelits.  This way, I could get just a very thin border of black.

Here’s a tip when you need a punched or die-cut piece of cardstock and you’re using that color as a background, too.  Don’t waste a separate piece of cardstock – just die cut out of the center of the layering piece.  No one will ever know!  Here’s what I mean:

punching into cardstock

Have you ever done this?  Works like a charm!


You could really have some fun by repeating this card layout with lots of different patterns of designer paper.  Change up the sentiment, too, to what you currently need.


Here are the measurements so that you can create this same card – either using the same products or choose something different!

Old Olive card base:  4-1/4″ x 11″

Basic Black and DSP layers both:  3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″

Sentiment banner:  3/4″ x 3-1/4″

In Color Club 2016 – join now!

May is such an exciting month – it’s time to introduce the 2016-18 In Color Club!  The products I look most forward to in the new Annual Catalog are the release of the new In Colors.  Everything looks fresh with the addition of one of these ultra-current shades.  And to help you get all of the new In Color products, I’m offering them in a club format.  The club runs from June – October 2016 and there’s also an EXPRESS option again this year to get everything all in one shipment.


All In Color Club members will receive two free welcome gifts – an In Color Bookmark and a set of die cut and punched pieces to use on your craft projects.


Here’s a look at your free gifts.  Use your In Color bookmark to keep your place in your new catalog or keep it handy as a color reference in your creative space!  Your 25-piece die cut and punched cardstock pieces will introduce you to the new Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and give you lots of great accents for your own projects.

In Color Club Gifts Collage

Every month, you will receive the following (multiply the list by 5 for what you’ll have by the end of 5 months!)

    • A hand-stamped card and coordinating envelope featuring your In Color of the Month
    • 12 Sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock
    • 1 stamp pad
    • 1 ink refill
    • 2 yards 3/8 Ruched Ribbon
    • 40 Enamel Shapes (10 hearts, 15 stars, 10 mini circles and 5 small circles)
    • 1 Stampin’ Write Marker
    • (2) 6?x12? sheets of In Color Paper Slab DSP
    • (2) 6?x12? sheets of In Color Envelope Paper

Because of the items that demonstrators can pre-order, the Enamel Shapes, the In Color DSP and In Color Envelope Paper are not pictured but will be a part of your monthly club packet.


This club makes it possible for you to have the coordination on a budget. Plus, it’s a fun surprise to see which color you’ll get each month!
