It's Sale-a-bration Time!





There is no finer time to be a Stampin' Up! customer, hostess, new recruit or demonstrator! There's something for everybody during Sale-a-bration! From February 1 through March 17 customers can earn a FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set or set of Rub-ons for every $50 in purchases(before tax and shipping). Hostesses can earn a FREE set for every $300 in party sales. New recruits get 20 percent off the starter kit AND a FREE stamp set up to a $47.95 value!!! Demonstrators get to earn FREE catalog stamp sets based on their saled during Sale-a-bration. Everybody wins!!!

You can see the Sale-a-bration brochure here. You can also view it anytime by clicking on the link on the right hand side of my blog under Stampin' Up! links.

Here are some samples made with some of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets made by some of the talented demonstrators in my downline group, the Hopperstampers, and myself. The flower card is made with the Friendship Blooms Sale-a-bration stamp set. I made this one for a demonstrator swap group. I stamped the flowers on Cutie Pie designer paper and cute them out. I punched the largest flower from the boho blossom punch and adhered that to the middle. I then punched out a flower from the Cutie Pie designer paper and placed it inside the build a brad. That is stuck through the middle of the flowers.

The second card is a criss-cross card made by the newest member in my downline group, Kathy Volner. She used the So Many Scallops Sale-a-bration stamp set and Flowers For You designer paper. The jumbo pewter eyelet sets it all off to perfection!

The next card is made with the Merci Sale-a-bration stamp set. My downline, Paula Stocker, made this wonderful creation. The images are embossed and then punched out with circles and layered on scallop circle punches. Such pretty colors and I love the way she did the ribbon!

The final card is made with the Birthday Whimsey Sale-a-bration stamp set. This creation was made by Kelly Emerson. She's been in my downline group for nearly 5 years. The girls got some talent!!! Look at all of the fun details in her card. the Oval window through the front layer of the card and the linen thread acting as balloon strings and wrapped around the brad are my favorite touches.

We all got together a couple of weeks ago for a demonstrator meeting and shoebox swap. I hesitate to call it a meeting because that sounds so boring. It's really more like a party when we get together! It really is a rare and wonderful group of ladies I have in my downline. When we get together it's a fun ladies night or day out! I LOVE my downline group!!! Thank you ladies for bringing such creativity to your projects.

These are just a few Sale-a-bration samples to tantalize you. I will be posting more throughout Sale-a-bration. Contact me or your local demonstrator to place your order, book you party, or really the best deal of the them all- Sign up!!!
