Hello Stamping Friends,
Hostess code for January is GZ9YM4QN. (If you are opening this in your mobile device be sure and click on the header a second time so all the videos work.)
Happy New Year!! I took a long break after our annual Stampers Christmas Party but it is time to get back to work!
Okay, so I had a vacation, Sal! But I am back!
Most importantly the new JJ Mini Catalog went live January 4th with the Sale A Bration brochure. With each $50 or $100 order from the Mini catalog and/or the Annual catalog, shoppers earn a free Sale A Bration Gift. JJ stands for January to June. The catalog went live January 4th and ends June 30th 2022.

SAL, Shout A Loud for 2022
Hello Stamping Friends,
Current hostess code: WRQKTXMA for use if you are a club member or your order is under $150-(that’s where hostess dollars start.)
To launch the new Mini Catalog and the Sale A Bration brochure I held a Caravan party followed by a luncheon. Thank you to those who were able to participate.
Caravan is a fun card and dice game that is quick to learn and participants change tables so everyone gets to see each other. There was a prize for the lowest score, the most caravans and the highest score. The prizes were from the new mini catalog; someone took home a stack of Designer Series Paper, someone won the Merry Melody Embossing folder and last place took home the Wonderful Snowflakes embellishments. Such fun!!
I’m sure they wouldn’t mind, Sal, but I didn’t take a single picture – not even of the winners holding their prizes. It was my intent but somehow the intent didn’t pan out! Check out these prizes, though…..
We didn’t have club or the normal zoom and mystery card event in July since we were traveling to Glacier National Park in Montana for an extended vacation.
Surely you have a picture or two of that!??
Dozens!! Here are two of my favorites.
It is an amazing place! We saw a few mountain sheep and two bears. We drove the ‘Going to the Sun’ road twice, the first time it was cloudy but we went again and it was a beautiful sunny day. We took two boat tours – Mary’s Lake and Flathead Lake, a lake outside the park. I wish we had had time to enjoy Apgar village on the west side, it looked very quaint and interesting (with an artisan shop) but we were too tired to stop. There were waterfalls everywhere and the Mary’s Lake boat tour stopped at a little cove and we walked up to a beautiful one:
The first time we drove the Going To The Sun road we went out of the park on the east side and then drove the road that went around the bottom of the park and back to the West entrance where we were camping. That road has beautiful scenery as well and that is where we saw a bear cross the road. Add that road to your travels if you are ever there.
Enough about parties and vacationing! Let’s look at today’s excitement – the new mini catalog goes live and the second round of Sale A Bration starts today! Click on the catalog images to view the catalogs by pdf – contact me to get a hard copy if you need one.
Aren’t you – like – really late in introducing the Mini Catalog. It says it started in July.
It was supposed to start in July but shipping delays caused such a problem that the home office thought it would be best to launch the catalog one month later. There are still three items that are delayed and can’t be ordered.
- 156326: GINGERBREAD & PEPPERMINT MEMORIES & MORE CARD PACK
- 156327: GINGERBREAD & PEPPERMINT MEMORIES & MORE CARDS & ENVELOPES
- 156275: GINGERBREAD & PEPPERMINT SUITE COLLECTION (ENGLISH)
- 156719: PAIN D’ÉPICES ET BONBON SUITE COLLECTION (FRENCH)
- 156458: BLACKBERRY BEAUTY 12″ X 12″ (30.5 X 30.5 CM) SPECIALTY DESIGNER SERIES PAPER
- 156278: BLACKBERRY BEAUTY SUITE COLLECTION (ENGLISH)
- 156725: AUTOUR DES MÛRES SUITE COLLECTION (FRENCH)
I will keep you posted on when those are available.
In the meantime, grab a cuppa something and sit back to enjoy these videos showcasing the suites in the new mini and a close up view of the Sale A Bration offerings!
What about the new people who don’t even know what Sale A Bration is?!
You are so right, Sal! I jumped right in without explaining our favorite time of the Stampin’ Up! year –Sale A Bration! In the past Sale A Bration was held for three months from January to March but this year Stampin’ Up! changed the program to be two months, twice a year- the first in January and February and now the second round in August and September. During Sale A Bration (SAB) you earn free level 1 products with each $50 purchase, and free level 2 products with each $100 purchase. If you host a party with $300 in sales you earn a free stamp set and if you join during Sale A Bration you get the standard $125 of products for $99 (with free shipping) and you get to choose a bundle of products free! I will leave the french sets in the images for those of you who might want to send a card to your french speaking friends!
During this round of Sale-A-Bration, some products will only be available while supplies last. This means that once they’re gone, they’re gone for good! The Sale-A-Bration products with limited supply include:
- 156629 Be Dazzling 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Specialty Paper
- 156600 Sheep Dies
- 156618 Summer Shadows Dies
All other Sale-A-Bration products will be available throughout the promotion. High demand can send these products into backorder and delay shipping, but the supply will not run out; all orders placed will be honored except for those three products.
I would love to have you on my team of Carin’ Crafters! Contact me or click HERE for details.
Our next club event is August 10th at 9:30, 1:30 and 6:30. The 9:30 is full but I have openings at 1:30 and 6:30. The morning and afternoon classes meet together at 11:30 with a potluck. Join us as a guest for $5 or a $25 order; however I need RSVPs by noon tomorrow. If this sounds like fun contact me to join or gather some of your friends for a get together at your house and they may want to start a club.
I think I have covered everything! Let’s grab those catalogs and a shopping list!

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,
A new year is here and a new mini catalog with Sale-A-Bration rewards!! Whoopee! For every $50 or $100 that you order, you will receive a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Sale-A-Bration lasts only two months this year. We will have another two months of a different Sale-A-Bration in July and August!
I almost forgot. Who remembers ‘Hey Chick’ from a couple years ago? Well, you can’t order the new ‘Hey Birthday Chick’ on page 52 of the new mini until February 1 because they are bringing back ‘Hey Chick’ and dies for both sets! Unless of course you are a demonstrator and then you can preorder it right now. Join my team of ‘Carin Crafters’ and enjoy this perk -and if you join now you will also get an assortment of five 6X6 stacks of Designer Series Paper in the four color families and the latest In Colors.
This month’s hostess code is: UEEZKD2D. Use this code if your order is under $150. At $150 you will earn the hostess rewards yourself.
On the second Tuesday, January 12th, at 9:30 AM, you can tune in to my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/stampalosopher/videos and I will be creating this month’s club cards. One card uses the Dandy Garden products and the other uses the Sand and Sea Products. You won’t want to miss this live stream.
On Tuesday, January 19, at 9:30 AM, I will highlight January’s Paper Pumpkin kit. (You still have five days to subscribe or purchase a subscription).
On the last Tuesday of the month, January 26, 9:30 AM, I will host a Zoom meeting where you can share cards you’ve made, or cards received in swaps, as well as participate in a Mystery Card challenge. RSVP on the calendar with your email and you can join the fun!

January Paper Pumpkin:
January’s kit will have enough supplies for 8 cards with 8 coordinating envelopes.
For sure! And while supplies last you can get a Paper Pumpkin add on of miniature boxes;
Mini Stamp And Cut Machine Available for order:
Photopolymer Stamps Being Renumbered with New Packaging:
As our photopolymer stamp stock in the old packaging sells out, we will be replacing them with the new packaging and a different number. As the year progresses and you order a photopolymer set that pops up as “out of stock”, the online ordering system will redirect you to the new number. It is the same quality stamps just reconfigured packaging. (Paper Pumpkin and Kits will not be reconfigured since they do not have a case for stamps.)
Are you done yet?
New year, new events, new catalogs, new announcements………so much to share and probably shouldn’t share my thank you cards today.
Probably not, there is always tomorrow!
Thank you for spending time with me today. If you need a demonstrator, I would be honored to have you trust me with your crafting needs.
