Today’s the Day!

Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

Stop the presses! Hold the phones! Take the day off! This is the best day of the year. (Ok, it may fall a little behind my birthday, but…)

It’s Sale-a-bration and Occasions Day!

Today is the first day of Stampin’ Up!® Sale-a-bration and the Occasions Catalog Sales Period. Oh, the fun of free products! I don’t think there’s one thing in the Sale-a-bration brochure that I don’t love. And, honestly, I have almost everything in the Occasions Catalog on my shopping list. And if it’s not on mine, it’s on Amelia’s! (Help me out! I need to sell a LOT this month, because she has several sets on her list that I wasn’t longing for. But she keeps asking where they are, because she’s sure I bought them. And she’s four, so I hate to crush her dreams this early in life.)

But seriously, this is a wonderful time of the year. First, I know that on the Chinese New Year on February 5, 2019, it will be the Year of the Pig. But at Stampin’ Up!® I think it’s the Year of the Butterfly. In the Occasions Catalog, we have the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and Butterfly Duet Punch. There’s also the lovely Beauty Abounds Stamp Set and Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies. (Both stamp sets can be bundled with the coordinating punch/die for a 10% savings.) Spending $50 during Sale-a-bration – from any catalog. or from the Clearance Rack, or Paper Pumpkin Prepaid Subscriptions, or any other way you can spend $50 – means you earn a free Sale-a-bration product. And there are more butterflies! There are wood Butterfly Elements (so cute – and they can be colored, stamped on, heat embossed, or left plain) and Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (DSP). So gorgeous! One side has beautiful colored patterns and the other side has black and white patterns.

But there’s more. Cupcakes. Candy. Whimsical designs. Realistic images. Dogs. Cats. Horses. Sentiments to stamp or die-cut. DistINKtive stamps. Kits. Sets you can color. Sets you don’t have to color. Stitched sets. And So. Much. More. If you don’t have an Occasions Catalog or Sale-a-bration brochure yet, please let me know and I’ll send you one. I’ll be mailing them out this week.

As always, there are three ways to benefit from Sale-a-bration.


Spend $50 (before shipping and tax) and choose a free product from the brochure. There’s no limit. For every $50 you spend, you can select a free product. And there are bigger rewards to earn when you spend $100. (And more exclusive free items will be coming February 15.)


Earn an extra $25 in free products when you host a qualifying party (only $250 in sales). And, of course, you can use those rewards toward a Stampin’ Up!® Starter Kit, if you’d like. Which brings me to the third benefit.


Join my team during Sale-a-bration, and you can get even more free product. There are two options this year. Option 1 – Get $175* worth of Stampin’ Up!® products for only $99. Or – Option 2 – Get $175* worth of Stampin’ Up!® products plus the exclusive Craft & Carry Tote (valued at $50 – which is what I had to pay) for only $129. Seriously, this tote is gorgeous. I’ve posted pictures before, but here is another. It’s super roomy and perfect for carrying your supplies “to and fro.”

Stampin' Up!, Sale-a-bration

Don’t you love it? I sure do! I use mine for every event – and when I’m traveling and want to take craft supplies with me.

*This is $50 more free product than usual

A Sale-a-bration Peek

Here’s a reward for sticking it out to the end of this post.

By the Bay, Stampin' Up!, Sale-a-bration

This is the free By the Bay set in the Sale-a-bration brochure. Any time we have a water or mountain related set, I have to order it. Mike has always loved the beach and I have always loved the mountains – although, as we get older, we’re both loving both these days! I’m thinking warm sand in the winter and lovely cool mountains in the summer? Or maybe the other way around.

This is a set you can earn free with a $50 order. It’s perfect if you want to stamp it in black and white, but you can also color it (or even color parts) for a lovely card. I stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White Cardstock and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

The other lovely product shown here is the set of Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies from the 2019 Stampin’ Up!® Occasions Catalog. Rectangles! Finally! No longer do you have to cut a square with a flap hanging out of the die, then cut another square to get a rectangle. And these rectangles have a stitched edge. Wait – did I say, “A stitched edge?” No – they have two. Look.

Not only do you get a stitched edge around the die cut, but there’s a stitched edge around the frame as well. How cool is that? I’m going to be using these a lot!

So – reminders. Let me know if you need a Sale-a-bration Brochure or Occasions Catalog and I’ll get them right out. When you place your online order, be sure to use the January host code FYEDHXVD. If your order is $50 or more and you use the code, not only will you be able to order free Sale-a-bration products, but I’ll send you a gift as well! And if you want to host a party or private class to load up on more free products, let me know so I can schedule your class or party. Finally, if you want to enjoy the benefits of being a demonstrator by joining my team, you can join here, or contact me for more information.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
