What you need to know about Sale-a-bration 2018!



I hope you are having a great start to the new year. For me personally it’s going to be a special year; I’m getting married (yay!), My brother is turning 40 (hooray!), my grandmother is turning 90! (WOOOT!?! when did time go so fast?) and I’m turning 30 (yay-ish yay. and many of my friends are turning 30 as well. YAY!). Do you have a lot of special events or anniversaries coming up too?
And not to forget Stamping’ Up! is celebrating 30 years this year too! You can expect lots of good sales and exceptional products. Please sign up to my blog to stay touch for more news about this.

Enough about me. Let’s get what this post is really about; the amazing Sale-a-bration from Stampin’ Up! This years Sale-a-bration is slightly different. It is still going to run from 3rd January until 31st of March. This year the reward system has been slightly changed as the Sale-a-bration items this year are exceptionally awesome. I will upload the catalogue for Sale-a-bration and the 2018 spring catalogue tomorrow! please let me know if you would like a physical catalogue here.

This years reward system is different in that there are better rewards when you spend £90. As always you earn free Sale-a-bration rewards when spending over £45. Lets say you spend £90 then you can pick 2x £45 reward items or 1x £90 reward item from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue – instead of only 2x £45 reward items. The value of the reward items adds up to what you have spent for.

This year there is a huge variety of items to pick from e.g. cute Panda stamp set to designer series paper to word DIES. Yes, there are dies this year 😀

On that note the word dies are going to continue over in the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue (launches June 2018), so why not get them now for free?! There is also a coordinating stamp set in the Sale-a-bration catalogue and they coordinate fantastically. The coordinating stamp set is not going to be carried over in the new Annual Catalogue – so get it while you can. There could be another coordinating stamp set for the dies in the new Annual Catalogue – making these dies even more versatile! These dies are THE must have from this years Sale-a-bration catalogue but to be completely honest there are so many great items that it is difficult to pick just one!

Just like last year there will be another Sale-a-bration catalogue coming in February! Both Sale-a-bration catalogues will run until 31st March.

If you haven’t got a demonstrator then I would love you to pick me and shop through me by using my shop and host code (get free product this way!).

Happy New Year !

I hope you had a great and safe New Years Eve. I spent mine with friends and we had a very nice evening with drinks and games.

I would like my first post in the new year to be about the new 2018 Spring/Summer Catalogue from Stamping’ Up! before this years Sale-a-bration catalogue steals the picture. Both catalogues goes online on the 3rd January and you can get a free catalogue by post by filling in your details here. I will also be uploading PDF’s of the catalogues on my blog.

This years Spring Catalogue has lots of cute and contemporary stamp sets, dies, embossing folders, embellishments and paper for Valentines day, Mother’s day, Fathers day, Easter, kids and spring and summer. There are also new products like tiny fruit punches, already inked mini stampin’ spot, watercolour ink crystals called Brusho, more embossing paste and much much more! Also keep your eyes out for a stamp and die set designed by one of the top American Demonstrators, Brandy Cox from Brandy’s Cards. It’s a versatile and sweet stamp and die set called “Hold on to Hope”, which can be used for encouragement, Sympathy, baptism, christening, birthday cards and more!

Stay in touch and have a lovely first day in the New Year,

Stampin’ Up! 2017 and Stamparatus!


I hope you have fully enjoying Christmas with good food and family. 2018 is right on the doorstep and 2017 has been a busy year for me. I bet it has been busy for most. Me and my fiancé have renovated a three bedroom cottage and been planning our 2018 wedding!

2017 has been an amazing Stampin’ Up! year – my first as a demonstrator! I think the highlights of this year have been the surprise launch of the Stamping’ Blends, alcohol markers, and the announcement of the Stamparatus, a stamping tool similar to the Misti or Stamp platform from Tim Holz, but has more options!
I remember the 2017 Spring Catalogue being really great with the Up & Away stamp and die set which made it to the 2017-18 Annual Catalogue and the Special Reason stamp and die set which surprisingly didn’t make it. I still keep it in my collection as the dies are to.. die for.. – get it? He he he..

Then there was the Daisy delight stamp and punch set which sold out so fast after the launch of the Annual Catalogue that we had to wait over a month for it to get back in stock!
Even Stampin’ Up! had a few surprises; the launch of the Blends was so popular that the warehouse barely could keep up with the delivery times and the first Stamparatus booking window closed within 10 minutes after it had been opened! 2017 has indeed been a year full of surprises for everybody.

Stamparatus by stamping up

Stamparatus will be a part of the 2018 Annual Catalogue (launching 1st June 2018) but you are able to get hands on it before. The Stamparatus is available by reservation only at the moment (this closes 31st December). It will be shipping from the end of March. The reservation works this way: Stampin’ Up! will send you an email when the Stamparatus has arrived in the warehouse and it will then be automatically added to your stamping up shopping cart linked to your login details. It’s only then when checked out you will pay for the Stamparatus, not at the time of reservation.

On a personal note, I also had a great Stamping’ Up! year. I held my first stamping party and it was a huge success. I would also like to dedicate more time to posting inspiring projects on my blog in 2018 and I really recommend that you subscribe to my blog and so I will be able to keep you updated on projects, relevant news about new products and upcoming sales from Stampin’ Up!

Many thanks and have a Happy New Years Eve,
See you soon and don’t forget to subscribe now! 🙂

year end sales 2017


January is fast approaching. It will be here before you are able to say “I look forward to Christmas holidays to begin”. January means Stampin’ Up! is releasing new catalogs. I will be uploading catalog PDF’s on the 3rd of January but if you live in the UK, I would love to send you a Spring 2018 catalog along with the amazing Sale-a-bration catalog – it’s really good this year! I will be putting them in the post between Christmas and New Years together with a wishlist you can use and write down your favorite stamp sets on.

Please request your free catalog  here.

I order every month from Stampin’ Up! and if you live in or near Reading and would like to save postage then we can easily combine orders and you can pick it up from my house or I can bring it to you 🙂

Don’t forget that many stamp sets from the current Holiday catalog will retire on the 2nd of January. Check out the End of Year sales to get some of these stamp sets on special offer before they retire. Also check out other stamp sets here which will also be retiring.

Also if you need to get something before Christmas tomorrow, the 14th December is the last day to be guaranteed delivery in time for Christmas!

Happy shopping!
