Sale-a-Bration Has Come and “Almost” Gone!

It’s hard t believe Sale-a-Bration has come and is almost over! We only have a few short days left. It’s one of the biggest promotions of the Stampin’ Up! year and customers as well as demonstrators look forward to it. For those that are new, it’s the time of year that exclusive products come out that you can earn for FREE. And who doesn’t love FREE!!! Especially when it comes to craft supplies.

2017 Sale-a-bration Catalog www.stampwithanita.com2017 SAB 2nd Release www.stampwithantia.com These seriously are some of my favorite SAB products we have ever had. Time is running out to snag your favorite ones. For every $50 you purchase in awesome SU! product you get to choose a SAB item for FREE! It’s that simple. These items are limited and once Sale-a-bration is over these products are gone forever. Click on images to see all the awesomeness.

Balloon Adventures www.stampwithanita.comAlso, did you know there was a second release of Sale-a-bration products? One of my favorites from the second release is the sparkly Glimmer Papers which I used on this happy birthday card. Sadly the glimmer papers are already gone. It seems it was favorite of everyone! I also used the Lift Me Up DSP that adds the perfect amount of fun and color. But, I have to say… my very favorite has been the Hey Chicks Stamp Set. What a fun set it has been to create with. Every time I look at this set I giggle and can see one of my girls.

Backyard Chickens www.stampwithanita.com
Meet 3 of of sweet girls… Callie, Huevo and Nacho. We celebrate their 5th birthday this month. I just love them! You can check out THIS POST to read more about our girls and grab my favorite recipe for Quiche. YUM!!!

Summer Sunshine Wishes!

I’m sharing some “Sunshine” with you today!  You will find details below for my upcoming Sunshine Wishes class and a yummy recipe full of sunshine at the bottom of this post!  I’m starting however, with some insight on waiting… for sunshine.


It’s been a challenging Summer for me to work on any projects that require using my hands.  I’ve been dealing with a “trigger thumb” since early Spring.  And of course it’s on my dominate right hand that I need everyday.  I thought I was just overworking it and tried to give it some rest.  It’s amazing how much we use our thumb.  I can’t even begin to tell you how many things I have dropped… and broken in the last few months.  Continue reading

ONLY days left to get your FREE with three!


You’ve only got a few more days to stock up on your favorite new Designer Series Paper
and get a great savings at the same time.

I know most of you are as frugal as I am so I want you to know that now is the time to order.  I waited for July to order DSP just for THIS SALE!

During the entire month of July, when you purchase three Designer Series Paper packs,
you’ll get one free. That’s like getting $10.95 off your purchase!

And as you know, our DSP is gorgeous!
But as beautiful as our catalog is… it just can’t show our pretty our DSP really is.

Remember… time is running out!  You must order by Thursday.
The easiest and fastest way is to order directly from my online store and it will ship directly to you.  Or if you prefer you can call, text or email me with your order.

  • There is no limit to the number of free Designer Series Paper packs you can receive. For each three purchased, you will receive one free.
  • To get your free DSP, enter it in your order separately from the three packs you’re paying for. For example, if you want four packs of the same type of paper, put in the three you’re paying for and enter the fourth as a separate item.

Blessings and Happy Stamping!

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Card Closure

It’s been a busy time filled with kid’s activities and sharing in their awesome accomplishments. I will take time to share more on that with you in another post, but wanted you know that even though I’ve been away from posting my thoughts have been with you all.  I don’t know about you but this long Winter has really taken a toll on me and my energy level.  But today on this first day of Spring I wanted to share a beautiful Spring card that has a special closure that features the new Scalloped Tag Punch.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure 4 www.stampwithanita.comI just love the colors on this card and how it beckons Spring to come.  I know I am so ready for warmer weather…. my aching joints are crying out for it to come soon!  This card was inspired by a make & take Addy Jester designed for us at a team meeting.  I added my own little flare by using the Chalk Talk Framelits Die.  So let me share with you how to make this card…

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Card Closure

• Petal Parade Stamp Set – wood (#133599), clear (#133602) SAB Product
• Perfect Pennants Stamp Set – wood (#133227), clear (#133230)
• Pool Party Classic Ink  (#126982)
• Basic Black Classic Ink  (#126980)
• 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″  Sahara Sand Cardstock  (#121043)
• 2 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ Pool Party Cardstock  (#122924)
• Crisp Cantalope Cardstock  (#131298)
• Chalk Talk Framelits Dies  (#129983)
• Stampin’ Trimmer  (#126889)
• Scalloped Tag Topper Punch  (#133324)
• Scallops Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  (#132971)
• Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper  (#133521)  SAB Product
• Crisp Cantalope Twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack (#133522)  SAB Product

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 1  www.stampwithanita.com    Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 2 www.stampwithanita.com
Start with a 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of cardstock.  You will be punching on both 5 1/2″ ends.  Insert cardstock into the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch all the way and center from top to bottom.  Before you punch look from the back so you can see that the card stock is pushed flush all the way into the edge of the punch.  You will do the same on the opposite side.  See photo and tip below to get both sides matched up.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 3 www.stampwithanita.comTIP: To easily match up both sides so they are aligned insert the opposite side of the cardstock and when looking from the back pull the side of the cardstock that you already punched back over to where you are punching now and you can visually align both sides up to match.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 4 www.stampwithanita.com    Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 6 www.stampwithanita.com
Now with both sides punched you will score the right side of your card.  Use the Stampin’ Trimmer and score down along where the punch cut into the cardstock.  On my Stampin’ Trimmer the cardstock lined up at the 7/8″ mark as shown above.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 5 www.stampwithanita.comOnce you have the first side scored you will then cut away the extra pieces as shown above.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 7 www.stampwithanita.comYou will then do the same thing to the other side that you punched… but on this side you will only need to cut the pieces away and NOT score.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 8 www.stampwithanita.comOnce both sides are complete you will slide the piece of cardstock back into your Trimmer and the side that a has the cut and score you will score again at the 4 1/4″ mark. This will become the back/inside of your card and will make more sense as you go along.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 9 www.stampwithanita.comWhen you are finished this is what you should have. You can discard the cut out pieces.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 10 www.stampwithanita.com    Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 11 www.stampwithanita.comFold your card on score lines and finish as desired.  For my card I attach a 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) on inside right edge as shown. I used the lovely Sweet Sorbet DSP (#133521) that you can earn for FREE right now during Sale-A-Bration.  On the outside flap I embossed a 2 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Pool Party Cardstock with the NEW Scallops Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  (#132971) found in the Occasions Catalog.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure Supplies www.stampwithanita.com

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure 2 www.stampwithanita.com
To finish my card off I tied the Scallop Tag Punched ends together with a piece of Crisp Cantalope Twine found in the SAB Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack shown below.

Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack www.stampwithanita.comLook at all this yummy goodness you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration. The twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack (#133522) was the perfect touch for my card. The Pack comes with three spools (10 yards each) of beautiful twine and a sheet of adhesive-backed die cut images printed on cork.

Just Sayin’

If you know me at all you know this is something you’ll find me saying… Just Sayin’

It also happens to be the name of one of my favorite new word sets!  I know I say that all the time… I just have a lot of favorites!  Sometimes I don’t even know they are my favorite until I see a finished card or project or I get to play with it myself.  The one thing I have found is that you just can’t have too many word sets.  Right?  Look at all these fun little messages…

Just Sayin'

Just Sayin’ available in Wood Mount (133200) or Clear Mount (133203) or click image to see bundles

What’s great about this one is it also has coordinating framelits.  Woo-hoo!

Just Sayin' Framelits

Word Bubbles Framelits Dies (132968) available alone or click image to see bundle

So let me show you a fun card using the “Just Sayin’ Bundle”.  We made it at our team meeting last night.  I love getting together with other demonstrators.  We share business ideas, celebrate one another and always share projects with one another.  This card was one of the Make & Takes we made.  I didn’t design it, but of course did add my own twist to it.

LoveYa! www.stampwithanita.com
Cute isn’t it?  I love the colors used on this card.  Do you ever find yourself in a rut when it comes to using the same colors all the time?  I have found one of the easiest ways to come up with a new color scheme for a project is to use the colors from one of our Designer Series Papers (DSP).  All the work has already been done for you and you may just find that you will use and even fall in love with colors you never knew you would have otherwise.


Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper (132993)

Here we used the Retro Fresh DSP and pulled the colors Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, So Saffron, Tangerine Tango from it for our card stock as well as the Tangerine Tango Ink.

LoveYa!1 www.stampwithanita.com
Don’t you love how the stamped image coordinates perfectly with the framelit.  You can purchase the stamp set and the framelits separately or save 15% by purchasing them as a bundle.  Who wouldn’t want to save money?  I love bundles!!!

LoveYa!2 www.stampwithanita.com
Hearts are not just for Valentines.  This card is just full of love with all the “HEARTS”.  Six hearts are included in the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies (#125599) used here.  Also used was the Full Heart Punch (119883) to punch out the Retro Fresh DSP heart and the Small Heart Punch (117193) was used to add the sprinklings of little hearts. <3 <3 <3

LoveYa!3 www.stampwithanita.com
Other details on this fun card is the use of texture with the Adorning Accents Textured Folders (125601) which happens to be one of our WEEKLY DEALS for THIS week only.  Another fun way that we added detail and texture to our card is the Retro Fresh Washi Tape (133001).

LoveYa! www.stampwithanita.com
So there you go…  Head over to my on-line store and grab one of our new bundles and some DSP and start creating some fun projects to share!

And don’t forget… if you purchase $50 you can choose a Sale-A-ration Product for FREE till the end of March!
