Occasions Catalog Paper Share

UPDATE: Paper Share is still available

What's a Paper Share? 

I'm so glad that you asked! A paper share is where you get a little of all of the paper included in that paper share. 

For example right now I am doing an Occasions Catalog with FREE Sale-a-bration Paper Share. 

I have included all of the 
Designer Series Paper (DSP)
that is in the 2017 Occasions Catalog and I have also added for FREE the paper that is in the
 Sale-a-bration Catalog. 

That is 7 packs of DSP as well as the 2 packs of DSP in the Sale-a-bration Catalog = 9 packs of DSP!!!!

Here is what you get......

from the Occasions Catalog
Sending Love - 16 - 6"x6" sheets
Cupcakes & Carousels - 24 - 6"x6" sheets
Falling in Love - 12 - 6"x6" sheets
Succulent Garden - 12 - 6"x6" sheets
Party Animal - 12 - 6"x6" sheets
Urban Underground - 12 - 6"x6" sheets
Tasty Treats - 12 - 6"x6" sheets

and from the Sale-a-bration Catalog for FREE
Carried Away - 12 - 6"x6" sheets
Inside the Lines - 16 - 6"x6" sheets

that = 128 - 6"x6" sheets for $23 + 5 shipping 
= $28
(This is only available within the U.S. I am not able to sell outside of the country. Sorry for that)

Email me at to Preorder this Paper share. 
Once you order, I order the paper. It comes to me, I cut it up and send back to you.

Tasty Trucks even when it's chilly outside ;)

Sale-a-bration is underway! For some reason, I think because the colors are so bright and springy in the new Occasions Catalog, I feel like it should be spring.....but alas it is not. Not yet anyway. 

My long haired chihuahua "Nilla" loves being wrapped up in a blanket on these chilly days. What comes with these chilly days??? Well often a cold or the flu. In between my husband getting sick and now me being sick, we did get away for a weekend, just the 2 of us. :) We went to the beach and saw our favorite glass blowing gallery and we gambled a little....I won a little ;)

The night before we left, I started to get sick, and when we left, I slept most of the way home while my hubby drove. 
Back to my craft room and I so badly wanted to craft a little. Show you a little something from the Sale-a-bration catalog. A fun, definitely a summery type of set. 
"Tasty Trucks" and it is only available as a Sale-a-bration item. That means you need to just spend $50 (before tax & shipping) on anything with Stampin' Up! and you can choose an item out of the Sale-a-bration Catalog for FREE!!! 

This set has ice cream cones, cupcakes, tacos, pancakes, hotdogs, as well as some banners and sentiments. Super fun little set. 

You can shop at my site HERE and click Shop Now.
I have additional freebies going on as well. :) And you don't wanna miss out on that!

January Newsletter & Additional freebies

For those who don't get it ahead of time, here is my January Newsletter just in time for the Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration. You don't want to miss out on my freebies. Make sure you request my newsletter by clicking HERE. Also keep in mind that during Sale-a-bration if you are one of my customers, you will also have access to another set of incentives or freebies :) 

January 2017 newsletter
Occasions Catalog & Sale-a-Bration Kick Off

I don't even know where to start.....where do I start??? I'm I tell you about the Sale-a-bration personal freebies...the amazing classes I've set up...the Paper Pumpkin prepaid special...additional giveaways this month I'm offering...the extras for joining Stampin' Up during this time of year???? You see my dilemma...right???

Sounds like a good place to start. Everyone likes Freebies!
First of all....Sale-a-Bration. If you have never ordered from Stampin' Up! during
Sale-a-bration, then let me inform you. For every $50 (before tax and shipping) you spend FROM ANY can be the regular catalog or the Occasions get to choose an item out of the Sale-a-bration Catalog for FREE. You cannot buy the items in the Sale-a-bration Catalog, you can only EARN them from other purchases. So, if you spend $50, you get to pick 1 item from the Sale-a-bration Catalog, if you spend $100, you get to pick 2 items and so on. personal freebies. These are things that I offer to my customers from me, they are not from Stampin' Up! Directly, so they must be ordered from
For January 2017.... I have cut the month in half...or close.
The catch must use the Hostess Code if the order is under $150 before tax & shipping. IF it is over $150 before tax & shipping, DO NOT use the hostess code, and you will earn your own Stampin' Rewards (freebies) and I will still give you all the items you would have earned from me.

Between January 4-16 use Hostess Code XAM7GESZ at
$50 and under you will get a pack of Stampin' Dimensionals
$51 - $100 the above item and the Sending Love Ribbon Pack
$101-149 the above items and the Sending Love Designer Series Pack
$150 and above (no hostess code)....all the above items and you will earn your own Stampin' Rewards

Between January 17-31 use Hostess Code HPBQTMNZ at
$50 and under you will get the Emerald Envy Taffeta Ribbon
$51 - $100 the above item and the Peekaboo Peach Ombre Stamp Pad
$101-149 the above items and the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit
$150 and above (no hostess code)....all the above items and you will earn your own Stampin' Rewards

I do have additional freebies that are offered to my customers only. If you received the “Thank you for being one of my customers”newsletters, then you know the additional freebies you will get in addition to the above items. I will have new Customer Freebies in February for any of my new and current customers.

New for 2017 --- Referral Bonus for January – If one of your friends or family orders from me at then you will get to pick an ink pad of your choice for their first purchase.

I do have some great classes coming out, you can see them at my blog at or by seeing them on my facebook page
The classes have their own freebies with them, and DO NOT qualify for the freebies with the hostess codes above.
1st Class will be “Beautiful You”.... and it is Beautiful if I do say so myself. Check out my blog or facebook page for details.

PAPER PUMPKIN has a special for $55 for a 3 month prepaid subscription and that is over $50, so you do get a Sale-a-bration item with that. Contact me for details if that is something you are interested in.

Additional Giveaways – For each 2 week period in January noted previously....for anyone one who makes a purchase, you will entered into a Giveaway for any FREE stamp set $30 or less. I will give away 1 stamp set for each 2 week period.

And last but certainly not least....Do you want to be on my team with me????? I am part of an AMAZING larger team that has it's own Private Facebook Page with assistance from many demonstrators. Some do this as a business, and many do this as a hobby demonstrator, meaning you just buy the product from yourself at the discount. That's what I did. I figured with the amount I was spending, I might as well get the discount. It has turned into much more than that, but it doesn't have to be. Stampin' Up! Does have a minimum to keep in good standing, and that is $300 every 3 months. Let me know if you are interested!! During Sale-a-bration you get.....

I'm sure there is a ton more that I want to say....but you don't want to read a novel. So I'll end with....keep your eyes out for more videos and surprise giveaways throughout the month....I always have something good going on!
