Update on Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Products

Stampin’ Up! has informed us of the current status of several products in the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs so I wanted to share this with you if you have been thinking about placing an order.

The Butterfly Duet Punch (#148523) and the Cake Builder Punch (#148525) are not orderable at this time. New shipments of these two punches are not expected until sometime in mid-March or early April. Because of this, the Butterfly Gala Bundle (#150599) and the Piece of Cake Bundle (#150579) are also not orderable at this time, however, it does not affect availability of the Butterfly Gala and Piece of Cake stamp sets, which you can still order. The good news is that both of these punches will be available in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!

Butterfly Gala Punch

Cake Builder Punch

Several items in the Sale-A-Bration catalog are going like hotcakes! The redemption of the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (149623) way exceeded inventory projections and is not orderable at this time. Inventory coming into the warehouse will be used to fill back orders. Another shipment is expected in March and will be orderable again at that time, while supplies last.

Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack

Redemption of the Foil Sheets and Precious Parcel Card Kit Sale-A-Bration items is going very strong and while inventory is not yet depleted, they might not be available through the end of the SAB promotion period. I just finished putting together the pretty cards from the Precious Parcel kit and they were quick and easy to put together – and no stamping!

Gingham Gala Meets Daisy Delight

Hello! Today I’m featuring another treat box made with the Window Box Thinlits. It has been so dark and dreary for the last few weeks so I wanted to make something bright and cheerful to remind me of spring. What better than the Gingham Gala Designer Series Papers in Daffodil Delight, paired with the Daisy Delight stamp set and coordinating Daisy Punch! I haven’t shown these products some love in a long time so it was fun working with them again.

Here is how I made the box.

  • Die cut two Window Box pieces from Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala paper and put box together using either Tear and Tape or Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Stamp two of the daisy images in Daffodil Delight ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Daisy Punch. Adhere the daisies together in the center with a Glue Dot. Using a bone folder, gently curl the petals up.
  • Stamp greeting in Lemon Lime Twist ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut using the oval tag die from the Window Box Thinlits set. I used a greeting from the Eastern Beauty stamp set. Cut a piece of Old Olive Linen Thread and tie through the hole in the tag. Adhere to box. Stampin’ Up’s Linen Thread is one of my favorite threads because it is so versatile. The Old Olive thread is new in the Occasions Catalog and you are going to love it too!
  • Adhere daisies to top of box using a Stampin’ Dimensional in the center. Punch small Daffodil Delight circle with the 1/2″ Circle Punch and adhere to center of daisies. Adhere a Gold Faceted Gem to the circle.
  • Die cut two leaves from Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. I used one of the leaf thinlits from the Beautiful Layers Thinlits set however you can use any leaf thinlit or punch that would fit nicely on the top of the box. Arrange leaves on top of box and adhere.

Stampin’ Up! OnStage Day Three

Saturday was the third and final day of OnStage and it was another fun-filled one! There were more product demonstrations, business training and demonstrator recognition sessions in the morning.  The highlight of the morning was Janet Wakeland demonstrating the new stamp set she got to design with Stampin’ Up! concept artists in recognition of hitting $1 million in sales earlier this year.  Stampin’ Up! has a tradition of inviting million dollar earners to visit the corporate office in Salt Lake city and while there they get to design a stamp set.  Janet’s set, which is in the new catalog, is named Artfully Aware.  She shared the images below with us.

During the three lunch events we got to take our picture with these props as a backdrop.  The lines were very long the first two days so I finally got around to doing it on Saturday.

These were the table decorations in the rooms where we had our lunches and did our Product SpotLight crafting. The plastic boxes stored all of the stamps and supplies we used on each of the two days that we did our make-and-takes.

The highlight of the afternoon was seeing Shelly Gardner, Co-Founder and Board Chair, and her daughter Sara Douglas, President, stamping together, as they have done for the last few years.  They work so well together and are also quite funny, so it is always a joy to watch them!

Of course, no day would be complete without Prize Patrol!  We were all given this super case that opens up into a gigantic tote bag!


We also received this new stamp set, which has really nice sentiments and a wonderful mixed font.

Wow!  My suitcase weighed 4 pounds more coming home from everything that Stampin’ Up! gave us LOL!!  I had such a great time at OnStage and would urge those of you that have contemplated going, to give it a try next year!

Even though the convention ended on Saturday, I was able to sneak in one more swap!  I had a 6am flight on Sunday and arrived at the airport before the check-in counters were open.  A number of women that had attended convention began arriving and as we waited we chatted away and someone on the line asked if anyone had swaps left – and I did – so we swapped! What a nice way to end my time in Orlando!

Stampin’ Up! OnStage Day Two

Hello again from warm and sunny Orlando!  OnStage Day Two was so much fun and excitement was in the air all day long.  There were several OnStage project demonstrations throughout the day, showcasing lots of items from the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. I know you will just love them!  We learned that as of this catalog, wood-mounted stamps will no longer be available.  The rubber stamps will now be known as cling stamps because they are guaranteed to stick like crazy on the clear blocks!  Stampin’ Up! will continue to sell photopolymer stamps.  More information about this change will be available soon.


We got to make two cards during our Product SpotLight crafting time.  This card uses products from the All My Love suite.

This card features products from the Happiness Blooms suite. The images on the stamps and designer series papers remind me of Marimeko designs, bold and bright.

Of course more goodies were handed out during Prize Patrol! Everyone received a package of Gingham Gala designer series paper and a lovely line art stamp set, Humming Along.


Along the way I met up with my fabulous team leader, Janet Wakeland, who this past year ranked #7 in the top 100 Global Leaders!

I also got to meet Kylie and Bruno Bertucci.  I am a big fan of Kylie, Australia’s top demonstrator.  She and Bruno hosted a meet-up and swap in the afternoon and it was exciting to see them in person and get to chat with them a bit!  Kylie is known for  #loveitchopit and #randomactsof kindness.

More to come with a recap of day three.  I will also be posting some of the swaps I received once I get things organized.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Stampin’ Up! Onstage Day One

Hello from Orlando, where I am attending Stampin’ Up! OnStage and celebrating SU’s 30th anniversary along with six thousand demonstrators from around the world!

We all received this beautiful box filled with a 30th anniversary commemorative tote bag.

Also inside the box were lined notepads, a pack of pens and a new stamp set, Amazing Life.

The highlight of the morning was getting a copy of the new Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs! Here is the front cover.

In the morning session two projects were featured and during  the lunch break we got a chance to make them.  They showcase two new product suites.  The card uses products from the Needlepoint Nook suite and the box uses products from the Classic Garage suite, which will be great for creating masculine cards.


This is what I got from Prize Patrol today – a pretty case to hold stamping tools and a new stamp set, Beauty Abounds.

Check here tomorrow for a recap of day two.  Thanks for stopping by!



Accented Blooms

Today I’m sharing a card I made using the lovely new Accented Blooms stamp set pictured on page 19 in the new catalog.  I used Blueberry Bushel, one of the 2018-2020 In Colors.  It is a bright blue so I paired it with a Daffodil Delight mat for the stamped image.  I used Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to color the image.  For the hello greeting I stamped it with Blueberry  Bushel ink and punched it out with the Tailored Tag punch, which was carried over from the recently retired Occasions catalog and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


This image could also be watercolored with pencils or an aquapainter for a soft look or by stamping the image with one of our fabulous colors instead of using black ink, simply leaving it as a line image without coloring it in. Cut the cardstock sized to fit the image and add a piece of coordinating designer paper and some ribbon or other embellishments for a different look.  You can also choose to use different greetings that would fit the Tailored Tag punch, making this a very versatile stamp set.  Thanks for stopping by today!
