Let's Celebrate Sale-A-Bration

We still have the rest of this month and all of March to get in on the Sale-A-Bration promotion at Stampin' Up!!! I promised to post some of my cards using the Sale-A-Bration mini catalog products that are free with a $50 purchase from the Spring-Summer 2009 Stampin' Up Idea Book & Catalog. Here they are! I was inspired by Vivian Swain for the Congrats card and Barbara Welch for the Yummy card.
You can go to my Stampin' Up Demonstrator Business Website at and order on line to take advantage of this special promotion.
Enjoy and have a great day!!!

Hawaii, here we come!

Hawaii, here we come! Dave and I are really looking forward to our upcoming trip to Hawaii with the other Stampin' Up Demonstrators who earned the trip. This will be our first time in Hawaii.
February News: Sale-A-Bration, what a celebration!!!

Sale-A-Bration is the perfect time to use your gift certificate or Christmas money to get what you have been waiting for from the Stampin' Up Spring/Summer 2009 Idea Book and Catalog. You don't have to be a hostess to get free products. There's something for everyone. Please read on...

Sale-A-Bration Dates: February 1- March 31, 2009

Promotion Details: Our Sale-A-Bration promotion gives reason for everyone to celebrate!
Customers: Receive a free Sale-A-Bration product for every $50 purchase.

Hostesses: Receive a free Sale-A-Bration product with a $300 or more workshop, in addition to the normal hostess benefits.

Recruits: Choose any retail stamp set (a value up to $47.95) from the current catalog when signing up during the promotion. Plus, get 15% off the regular $199 price of the Starter Kit--that's $335 worth of products for only $169!

Future postings: I'll be posting samples of projects made with some of the free Sale-A-Bration products. I like the new addition of designer paper and ribbon to the usual stamp sets.

I'm really enjoying the new Sizzix dies I've purchased. The butterfly die is fantastic. You get 6 butterflies from the die and they can be layered, dry embossed and glittered. We used it tonight at my Scrapbooking Class. They were stunning on the "Garden" page.
Thanks for looking and come back soon!
