The BEST 2 Ways to Enjoy Sale-A-Bration & Savings!

There is nothing like new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog products and a Sale-A-Bration promotion to get your creative wheels turning.  I’m having a ball crafting with new dies, stamps, pretty paper and embellishments.  If you are passionate about paper, stamps and ink, it’s a fantastic time to purchase a starter kit, join Stampin’ Up! (risk-free with no further obligation) and enjoy those new products at a minimum of 20% off.

2 Choices for the Starter Kit

THE ULTIMATE STAMPIN’ UP! BUNDLE ($99 Starter Kit) IS EVEN BETTER!  These TWO 2019 Sale-A-Bration $99 Starter Kit offers are hard to resist!  The kits are the best bundles and value of Stampin’ Up! products you can get! 


DURING SALE-A-BRATION (Jan. 3 – March 31), there are two ways to purchase the Starter Kit and join Stampin’ Up!

Option A ($50 product  bonus):  Pay $99, receive your choice of $175 in Stampin’ Up! products (that’s $76 in FREE products) and it ships FREE for another 10% savings.

Option B ($50 product bonus & craft tote):  Pay $129, receive $175 in your choice of Stampin’ Up! products and it ships FREE for another 10% savings.  This kit includes a beautiful Craft & Carry Tote Bag valued at $50.  You save $20 on the tote as part of the kit and also get $76 in FREE products. 

You’ll love it for crafting on the go!  Get a close up look at the Craft & Carry Tote Bag here.

Save 20 - 25 %


  • Create your own kit!  Choose ANY Stampin’ Up! products (including bundles) to fill your kit.  Host sets and Sale-A-Bration gifts are excluded.
  • Happy shopping & SAVINGS!  Purchase the starter kit in January and receive a 20% discount (25% if you reach $1800 in rolling 12 month sales) on additional demonstrator purchases thru a minimum of July 31, 2019.  This window of time includes enjoying your discount on the 2019-2020 annual catalog pre-order products (May) and launch (June)!
  • Perfect timing!  You will have the same amount of time (through July 31, 2019) to reach your first $300 sales minimum and renew for the Stampin’ Up! July – September quarter.  Renew with $300 in sales and/or personal purchases for each additional quarter.
  • Test drive demonstrator discounts and benefits with no risk and no penalty to drop.
  • Be first!  View new catalogs and pre-order products a month (or more) before their release (and at a discount) – one of my favorite benefits. 
  • A good fit!  I welcome hobby stampers to my Stampin’ Pretty Pals!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas today from the Fish Family and our fur-baby family of rescues!  Yesterday, we took the dogs (Lucy & Freddie) to a local, dog-friendly restaurant for Yappy Hour.  They loved sitting on the patio and getting spoiled with treats on Christmas Eve.  Later today, we plan to “chill” and visit friends for a fancy holiday feast.  

Freddie (left) and Lucy (right) basking in the Tucson sunshine.  Lucy lives with my daughter in Tempe and is home for the holidays (happy dance).

60 degrees but dropping below freezing by Saturday!  It’s Freddie’s first and Lucy’s second Christmas with us.

Freddie explores the bougainvillea and cactus.

Boris likes to chill out away from the dogs.

Sasha thinks she is invisible.

Please enjoy the holidays with those you love, human or otherwise!

Hugs, Mary
