July was the ‘Go Live’ date for the new Mini Catalog and the next round of Sale A Bration for 2022. For each $50 or $100 purchase you receive a free item from the Sale A Bration brochure and, as of today August 2, there are items added from the other catalogs!
Sale A Bration runs from July 1 – August 31, 2022! Let’s look at the new items first:
And this is the full brochure, click on the image to view a pdf with each page:
I do, Sal. Let’s look at the mini catalog that has that set on page 46, click on the image to view:
The products in Sale A Bration are available only until they sell out. Currently the Tree Lot Dies and the Pool Party & Soft Sea Foam Cards and Envelopes are unavailable. We’ve lost two products but gained 10 products so that is good!
Sale A Bration is a great time to:
- Receive a Level 1 item for each $50 purchased
- Receive a Level 2 item for each $100 purchased
- Receive Stampin’ Rewards dollars if your order is $150 or greater.
Host A Party
- Gather your friends for a fun event of stamping and shopping
- Receive the free ‘Perfect Pomegranate’ stamp set if your party orders total $300
- Spend $99 for $125 of products with free shipping
- Receive about $50 of business supplies, catalogs, order forms, etc. at no additional cost
- Receive the ‘Making Plans Collection’ which includes a Planner that runs from July 2022 to December 2023, a making plans notebook trio of 3 creative journals, and the Making Plans Stamp Set shown on page 19 in the Sale A Bration brochure above.
Good point, Sal! One more benefit of being a demonstrator is the ability to preorder from upcoming catalogs or promotions. Would you like a sneak peak of the September promotion which demonstrators can preorder right now?
Click HERE or on the Join tab at the top of the blog and you will be guided through each step to join. Give me a call at 303-815-0838 or email me if you have questions. There are no ‘selling’ requirements and you may drop at anytime without penalty. You remain a demonstrator as long as you purchase or sell $300 each quarter. Your first quarter does not have that requirement; in fact, any purchases made during the first quarter you join will apply to the following quarter.
Understandable, Sal! Let’s do a scenario.
Let’s say you join during August. August is part of the third quarter -July, Aug, Sept. You join and receive the gorgeous planner and $125 of products for only $99 in your Starter Kit. The Starter Kit won’t earn you Sale A Bration rewards or Stampin’ Rewards so let’s just say you need a few more tools and you want one of those rewards or the bundles only demonstrators can purchase in August. You place a $150 demonstrator order in August. You would be able to pick out 2 or 3 Sale A Bration items and you would have 10% of your order in Stampin’ Rewards free dollars. But the best part is your order of $150 (and any additional orders you place in September, still third quarter) count towards the $300 requirement you must meet in the fourth quarter- Oct, Nov, Dec.
Yes, and what a wonderful time to join with all the specials and Christmas card making coming up! Speaking of Christmas cards, check out the latest kit offering by Stampin’ Up! available tomorrow, August 3:
Here is our CEO, Sara, to show you this kit:
What fun! With this kit you could do all three of the things I listed for Sale A Bration – Join, Shop, Host! Have your friends order a kit from you and gather together to make Christmas cards. It’s really not too early!
Thank you for spending time with me today! I appreciate your support of my little business.

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,
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
