If you see a project and wonder what was used to create it, just click on the link above and scroll to the page the project is on. The catalog and this link are in the ‘Catalogs’ tab so you don’t have to find this post each time you have a question.

SAL, Sharing A Lot, Sharing A Love,
Hello Stamping Friends,
May 4th marked the debut of our new Annual Catalog! It will run through May 2 of 2022.
Click on the catalog image here in this blog post for a pdf of the catalog. The pdf is also posted in the ‘Catalog’ tab on the blog so you can view the pdf anytime anywhere with a mobile device or computer.
In celebration I held the annual catalog launch with lots of goodies for the attendees.
They each received a catalog enjoyment kit – commonly called catalog survival kit, but that sounds like it is painful so I called it a catalog enjoyment kit!
Obviously, Sal, that’s why I love blogging!
(If you use this file in another year I suggest changing the green heading colors. I was trying to get Soft Succulent on Evening Evergreen but it was a bit hard to read.)
I found the perfect pouch at Walmart for the catalog and the ‘enjoyment’ kit and taped the above instructions on the outside. The pouch is the perfect size for the catalogs and it is plastic so it will protect the contents.
I couldn’t find the right size of clear envelope for the goodies so I used a page protector, cutting off the binder holes and wrapping the excess around the back. The wish list is a supply item available to demonstrators that is a pack of three wish lists. I used one page from each of the lists. I also added a set of catalog tabs from the supply items available to demonstrators.
There are lots of perks to being a demonstrator. Come talk to me!
I cut a piece of cardstock and used glue dots to attach all the goodies. The pen is from a pack of clear pens (Pentel RSVP brand); a small piece of the new hostess Pattern Party Designer Series Paper with hearts was rolled up and inserted in the pen. I even found emoji bandaids for a cute little smile! They do make individually wrapped lifesavers I found out, and of course Ghirardelli chocolates are a must as they are a tradition at my events.
Well, Sal, the joy of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators is that we CASE things – ‘copy and share everything’, and I have copied many many ideas from other demonstrators so it is only right that I provide ideas for my downline and other demonstrators that might be interested in casing what I have done. Some of my customers might even become demonstrators building a business and need ideas like this.
There are times I think that I am just using my blog as a digital scrapbook for myself and then I realize I haven’t left comments on the blogs that I follow, so perhaps there are those who do use the ideas even though, like me, they never leave comments.
I had a raffle bag, a crossword puzzle scavenger hunt, a make and take card with the new In Colors and the traditional bookmark using the new In Colors and an In Color swatch sheet.
The raffle bag included magnets, a shopping bag, a notebook and the bag was a Stampin’ Up! lunch bag. These are all supplies available to demonstrators. The punch is the new ‘Elegant Tag’ punch!
To enter they could complete the crossword puzzle, place an order and receive one ticket for each $10 of merchandise purchased, or purchase a ticket directly for $2.50.
I will draw on Tuesday the 25th at our Zoom meeting!
Take a look at the new In Colors they are so lovely! I loved them all this year and had to have all the inks and the ribbons and the markers and the blends and the paper – oh my! I usually just choose one or two to highlight at the launch but not this year!
This is the bookmark we made using the In Color DSP for little samples on the front. For the back we colored one of the sheets of the black and white Pattern Party Designer Series Paper available to hostesses. We colored the top with blends and the bottom with markers so they could see the difference and get familiar with the colors. (and fall in love with them!)
We did a make ‘n take using the Color and Contour bundle in the new catalog. They chose their color.
In the Catalog section of the demonstrator web site is a test to see which color you are. I am Fresh Freesia according to the test. What do you think? Another fun demonstrator perk!
Recipe for Make ‘n Take
- Base: Thick Basic White, 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, Scored at 4 1/4
- In Color Layer: Fresh Freesia, 5 1/2 X 4 1/4, die cut with largest Scalloped Contour die
- Top Layer: Basic White, 3 1/2 X 4 3/4, die cut with 2nd largest Scalloped Contour die
- Ribbon: 8″ of Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon
- Embellish with three matching In Color Jewels
Stamp the flower from the Color and Contour stamp set in Evening Evergreen then do the second stamp in the Fresh Freesia. We call this two step stamping – no coloring! The ‘Thank You’ greeting is from the Pansy Patch stamp set in the new catalog. Wait until you see what we can do with that pansy set and the ….
You are right! That is for the next post.
Two important announcements from the home office:’
If you hold a qualifying party between now and June 14, you can earn more hostess dollars!
And if you join my team of Carin’ Crafters by May 31 you get $30 more product in your starter kit for the same $99.
Text or call me at 303-815-0838 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to show you all the benefits of being a demonstrator. There is a tab at the top of the blog to link you to Stampin’ Up! with all the instructions to join.
If you don’t have a demonstrator I would be honored to ‘bring a pinch of creativity to spice up your crafting world’!
SAL, Smile A Lot
Click on little Sal in the computer to shop the online store. The hostess code is NS2RB2WK if your order is under $150 or it is your club order. Thank you for spending time with me today. I love to see comments and read every one!
Hello Stamping Friends,
The hostess code for March is : A3BVB4QZ. Use this code if your order is under $150. Over $150 and you will receive the hostess rewards yourself. The code lets us combine all the small orders so we don’t leave hostess dollars on the table.
Good question, Sal. We have lots of options for tomorrow’s free shipping. I have linked them up here:
-The Jan – June Mini catalog has oodles of awesome products available until June 30
-The Annual Catalog is valid through May 3. Though we don’t know yet what stamp sets are retiring, we do know all the In Colors for 2019-2021 are retiring and all their matching products- ink, reinkers, cardstock, and embellishments so you may want to get these retiring products tomorrow with free shipping. These colors retire:
- Rococo Rose
- Terracotta Tile
- Pretty Peacock
- Seaside Spray
- Purple Posy
Stampin’ Up! usually retires all the designer series paper (DSP) at the end of each catalog.
-The Beginner Brochure is valid through May 3.
-The Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick specials are valid through June 30.
-The Butterfly Bouquet special is available through May 3, after which the stamps and dies will be available in the new Annual Catalog but the Butterfly Bijou designer series paper (DSP) and the Natural Touch Specialty DSP will be gone forever. The dies cut out beautiful butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou DSP.
Right-O! Stay tuned for the next post!
- And there is also the Clearance Rack with a few items still available.
Check them all out and order with free shipping starting at one minute after midnight tonight. I am going to have my order ready and waiting so I can just hit the submit button.

SAL, Shipping A Lot tomorrow for free
Hello Stamping Friends,
(Remember to click on the heading to go to the full blog–videos I post work better there!)
Isn’t it beautiful?!! The photography is fabulous and when you see some of the DSP – designer series paper – made from live photos you will be amazed!
Ordering began today at noon! A BIG thank you to those who have already jumped to the task of ordering before anything sells out. My task was to get catalogs into everyone’s hands. If you would like one please contact me. Text: 303-815-0838
We hope to see the new cutting machine by Christmas if all goes well!
My catalog launch this year is a Facebook Live Event happening twice:
- Tuesday morning, June 9th, 9:30 AM
- Saturday morning, June 13th, 9:30 AM
This is the link to my Facebook business page. If you would like a kit with the projects we will be doing give me a shout out! The kit is $5 and you will make a card, a bookmark and a color sheet with the new In Colors. There will be a catalog scavenger hunt with prizes!
That is so hard but I think it “might” be the Peony Garden Suite on page 82. Here’s a video:
Maybe it is just because I have been looking for a peony bush for my yard and they sell out so quick that I haven’t found one.
But then there is the Bird Bundle on page 120 and you know how I love birds!
Sarcasm doesn’t look good on you, Sal.
Let’s go away and let our stamping friends enjoy the catalog.

SAL, Sail At Launch Saturday
Hello Stamping Friends,
The new catalog is active! We are celebrating 30 years of loving what we do and sharing what we love as we help you enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments…making a difference in your life and in lives worldwide! (Karen’s paraphrase of our Statement of the Heart!)
Here in Castle Rock, CO I will be hosting a catalog launch on Friday, June 8 and Saturday, June 9, from 8 am to 3 pm. Join me as we look at new products, make a color chart with the new In Colors and make a bookmark for your catalog using the new Graceful Glass Designer Vellum.
In conjunction with the catalog launch, there will be a craft garage sale! A couple other stampers and myself are parting with some of our past products to make room for new. I love ribbon but my ribbon storage is overflowing so I am going to divide up the ribbons and package them for sale. I keep adding stamp sets to my ‘for sale’ items and then looking at them and putting them back on the shelf and then scolding myself and putting them back out for sale. Sigh……… it is like breaking up with a friend! lol
The hostess code through June 9th is UB6X963B. 20% of any sale made at home now or through closing of the sale on Saturday will entitle you to a voucher for use at my craft table. There will be past Paper Pumpkins for sale, DSP, and Big Shot items.
I had better get to work sorting and packaging! Have a wonderful day!
SAL (Shop A Lot, Smile A Little, and Share A Love)
Happy Fourth of July Stamping Friends!
May you have a wonderful day enjoying friends, food and fireworks and may we all remember that ‘freedom is not free’ and the many who have gone before and are serving now to preserve our freedom! Thank you to all those and thank you to a mighty God – may “One nation under God” be forever true!
July has some very special Stampin’ Up! promotions:
And here is the new catalog if you haven’t received a hard copy or want to look at the new products from your mobile device:
If you have ever considered joining Stampin’ Up! to always get a 20% discount on your hobby supplies or to have a business to completely support your love of stamping, or to restock your dwindling supplies, now is a great time to join.

Click on either image above to go to the website to join or research further what it means to join and commissions you recieve!
This bookmark uses three of my many favorites in the catalog and the new Lemon Lime Twist ‘In Color’ paper. The greetings, front and back, are from “Crafting Forever” on page 181. The butterfly is from the ‘Move Me’ Thinlits and has a lovely matching stamp set (see page 170). I will be posting a card using that set in the near future. For those of you who sell cards, the “Crafting Forever’ stamp set has a separate copyright stamp for using on your cards. The branch is from a long time favorite I hope never retires – “Thoughts and Prayers”, page 100. Here are the details:
- Base= Basic Black 2 1/2″ X 6 1/4″
- Front= Lemon Lime Twist 2 1/4″ X 6″
- Butterfly= Basic Black 2 1/2″ X 2 1/2″ Cut with Big Shot and Move Me Thinlits -Two butterfly thinlits used together
- Circles for the top= Basic Black 3/4″, Lemon Lime Twist 1/2″; punched with the 3/16″ hole punch (Crop A Dile)
- Words= Crafting Forever Stamp Set
- Dots on background= You Move Me Stamp Set
- Flowering Branch= Thoughts and Prayers stamp set
- Ribbon= 6″ Ombre Lemon Lime Twist, 6″ Black Baker’s Twine
- Three Rhinestone Basic Jewels
And for a few Fourth of July cards I went back into history and found one I had made by creating two sizes of tubes with card stock and then cutting very thin slices of the tube and mounting them to create a fireworks kind of look:
Remember Paper Pumpkin’s cute pinwheels a few years ago? I mounted them on a decoration I found at the store to make a fun wall hanging:
So celebrate the Stars and Stripes that represent our great country!

Hello Stamping Friends,
This coming Saturday, June 18, from 10am to 2pm I will have an open house to introduce the new catalog and the new In Colors. We will make a new In Color color sheet:
It is a great organization tool if you store your paper by color family as I do. An 18″ Elfa drawer stores two sets side by side:
You can make a bookmark for your new catalog with the In Colors and the new Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies and there will be a quick make and take card using the new Floral Affection Embossing Folder. A fun day with no entrance fee!!
I am going to part with a few of my Stampin’ Up! stamp sets and Big Shot dies and will have them for sale at the open house. You are invited to set up a table of your own sales items if you would like.
Join the fun and pick up your catalog this Saturday! (Click to view it in PDF form)
SAL, (See A Lot, Save A Little)
It is here dear stamping friends! The new Occasions catalog and the Sale A Bration mini with free products to choose from for every $50 you order.
The Occasions Catalog is good through May 31, 2016 and includes several carryovers from the Holiday catalog! Yay!
These images have a PDF link so you can download on your mobile device and page through the catalogs wherever you are.
The Sale A Bration mini catalog shows all the free products you can earn during Sale A Bration- January 5-March 31, 2016 with 3 limited time products on page 16 and 19. Club starts January 16 at 10:00 here at my home on Eagle Ridge Way so sign up now or RSVP as a guest for $5 to cover the kits. Need catalogs? Call me at 303-815-0838 or email email@example.com.
For those of you who are Paper Pumpkin Partiers, you can purchase another block of Paper Pumpkin at a discounted price and earn one of the products from Sale A Bration! Save a few dollars and get a free product! Check out the video below of the December Paper Pumpkin.
One alternative idea I saw was to use each month for a birthday card front and circle the special date!
Weekly specials are still ongoing and the clearance rack has many items so check them out. Each $25 order is entered into a drawing. Use hostess code RFM9K44H if your order is under $150 and our club hostess for the month will get benefits. With $150 or more do not use the code since you will get hostess benefits.
Winner of the hostess product for the Year End Clearance and last Holiday Hurrah was Deana! She earned $22 of hostess product. Thank you all for your orders.
Winner of the December prize is Melissa! Each blog comment and each $25 order was an entry in the prize drawing. So thank you for following and may your new year be blessed!
