I know I keep a teasing you with new product from the Occasions Catalog and the Sale-a-Bration Flier.  You should be getting good at spotting the new products.

From the Occasions Catalog on this card, I used the Spiral Flower Originals Die.  I will be featuring this die at my "Blooming the Winter Blues Away" class that I will be holding in January.  Registration deadline is fast approaching check out the details here, as you won't want to miss this class.

You will also want to check back on Jan. 3rd, when the Occasions Catalog goes live, as I will be featuring the Spiral Flower Originals Die in my video series "What's Up With Stampin' Up!" as I spotlight new product from the Occasions Catalog.

Or better yet, subscribe to my YouTube Channel and you will not miss any of my upcoming videos as I showcase Occasion Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Flier.

I also used the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder that you will get free during Sale-a-Bration, January 28- March 31, 2014 with a $50 purchase.  You do know that you get free Sale-a-Bration Product with book shows and with Online Orders?  I just love free, so wanted to make sure you knew that.  And if you purchase Online not only do you get the FREE Sale-a-Bration Items you qualify for my Loyalty Program.  More Free!

Now can you spot the Sneak Peek items, first the ones from the Occasions Catalog?  They are the New Scalloped Tag Topper and the Fringe Scissors. 

If you are on my mailing list, you should have received your Occasions Catalog in the mail this past week, if you did not let me know.  If you are not on my mailing list, and do not have a Stampin' Demonstrator, let me know and I will get you a copy.

Do you spot the Sneak Peak for the Sale-a-Bration Sale that will start on January 28, 2014 and run through March 31st?  It is the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.  I have always loved the Perfect Polka Dots Folder from Stampin' Up!, but this folder is over the top.  And you can't purchase but you can get it free.  Got to love free!

Join Me For Another Round of Stamps-in-the-Mail

Occasions Catalog_Blessed EasterNever leave your home!

What is “Stamps-in-the-Mail”?

    This is a Stamp Club I am holding for my out of town and busy stampers!  In “Stamps in the Mail” you will receive the latest and greatest Stampin’ Up! products each month, as well as materials to create 3 totally cute cards with your new products delivered right to your door! 

You will keep everything that you receive—stamps, ink pads & accessories.  Directions and photos will be e-mailed each month.  Stamps in the Mail will run for 3 months, Jan., Feb., & March. 

All three months of this round of Stamps-in-the-Mail are during Sale-a-Bration, our biggest sale of the year.  This means each month if you add an additional $15 worth of product with Stamps-in-the-Mail, before shipping & tax, you will get a FREE Sale-a-Bration item of your choice.   

You must commit to all 3 months.  Each month I will notify you of what products you will receive the next month.  If you choose, you can substitute an item (of like value, or you can pay the difference if over) plus if you choose to add the $15 additional product, you will receive a Sale-a-Bration item.  

I need to know before the 28th of the month.  Your “Stamps in the Mail” packet should arrive around the 15 of each month.    Each month you will receive new product.  The cost each month is $50 (includes about $40 in product, including shipping & tax, you keep each month).

“STAMPS IN THE MAIL CLUB” will begin on January 28th; you must sign up by that time using the registration form below.  Your club dues of $50 will be charged on the credit card of your choice around the 28 of each month, or you can send a check for full payment.

Any items you add to your monthly products will be in addition to club dues.  This round of “Stamps-in-the-Mail” will feature the “Blessed Easter” #133212 Stamp found on pg. 20 from the NEW Occasions Catalog.   

You will also receive in the first month, #102954 Aqua Painters, #131266 Pear Pizzazz & Daffodil Delight Markers.  All projects for the month of January will be using your new products. 

The only things I am assuming you will have are a black ink pad, a clear block to mount your stamps that is at least 3/4” x 3” for second month, a die-cutting machine, and adhesives. 

If you wish to have your stamp set the second month be a wood-mounted set, you will need to add $9.00 to your order for the second month, which will go towards a free Sale-a-Bration Set if you want.   

Don’t have the Occasions Catalog or Sale-a-Bration Flier, let me know and I will drop them in the mail to you right away, or you can view on-line at click on shop now Occasions Catalog (after Jan 3) or Sale-a-Bration (after Jan. 28th)

Blog Candy Winner

 And the last Blog Candy Winner is

My 2014 resolution is to keep my craft room from looking like someone came through with a giant fan after I make a card. Also I need to make more cards instead of spending my whole day just looking at blogs and Pinterest even though that is so much fun to do.

Thanks to all of you for your comments on my blog candy.

Here is wishing you a very Merry Christmas.  Wanted to share this beautiful video as we celebrate this very special day.  God Bless.


Last Minute Christmas Idea

Winter Frost_Notebook.Are you still looking for last minute Christmas Ideas or Stocking Stuffers?   This creative fold video may help you with that.  There is a video at the end of this post.

Don't forget to register for the blog candy, drawing will be Dec. 24, 2013.

How quick and easy to make an adorable note pad cover for some one special.  I used a 3" x 5" Note Pad that I found at the Dollar Store.  If you find a different size Note Pad you can adjust these measurements.

I used a piece of Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, remember this paper will be retiring on January 2, 2014., that measured 6" x 9 1/4".

I scored long ways at 6 3/8". 3 3/8", & 3".  Then I flip 90 degrees and scored at 5 /8" and at 1".  I cut the 1" score line done to the 3" score line.  This creates the flap over the top of the note pad.

Sure hope this video helps you with some last minute gifts.  This will be my last video until January 3, 2014.  When I can start showing you the amazing new products in the Occasions Catalog.

You should be getting your catalog in the mail, if you have ordered from me within the last year.  If you have not ordered from me and do not have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, please send me an e-mail at and I will get you one.
