Everything You Need to Know About Occasions and Sale-a-Bration 2018

Occasions 2018 is right around the corner!  The catalog ordering period begins January 3rd, which is the day after the current Holiday Catalog retires.  While I am sad to see the Holiday Catalog go, I am super excited about all of the new products in the new catalog!  The new stamp sets, papers, accessories, and coloring tools are sure to inspire some beautiful creations!  There are seven gorgeous new suites, with each suite containing stamps, ink, papers, embellishments, and accessories all designed to perfectly coordinate.  Perfect coordination is one of the things I love most about Stampin’ Up!  They take all of the guesswork out of trying to figure out if colors, papers, and designs will look good together.  How many times have you stood in a craft store trying to match ink, paper, and accessories, not knowing for sure if they’ll actually match?  And then you get home and you realize they really don’t look that great when put together?  This used to happen to me ALL THE TIME!  When Stampin’ Up! puts products together, you KNOW they’ll look great! Not only do they handle all of the coordination for you, they also provide lots of colorful samples in their catalogs so you can actually SEE all of the products together.  That is something you definitely don’t get in a craft store!

Some of the occasions featured in the new catalog include Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day, as well as new items for everyday occasions like birthdays, congratulations, weddings, thank yous, and more!  There is definitely something for everyone in this catalog!  You are going to love it!  🙂

 

Along with the new Occasions Catalog comes the start of Sale-a-Bration!  Sale-a-Bration is Stampin’ Up’s biggest and best promotion of the year!  It runs from January 3rd-March 31st.  For every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping), you get to choose a FREE product from the Sale-a-Bration brochure!  There is no limit to have many free items you can earn, or how many orders you can earn them on during Sale-a-Bration…EVERY qualifying order between 1/3 and 3/31 will get you free products!   There is also a NEW prize level this year…a $100 level!  So if you have an order of $100 (before tax and shipping), you can either choose two $50 level items OR one $100 level item!  This is something totally new that Stampin’ Up! is trying this year, and it’s sure to be a hit!

Here’s a brief rundown of what the choices are for Sale-a-Bration this year:

$50 Choices

6 stamp sets

1 Designer Series Paper pack

1 card kit

1 ribbon pack

1 Memories and More card set

1 cards and matching envelopes set

$100 Choices

1 thinlits dies set

1 stamp set

Unfortunately, I can’t show you actual images of ANY of these items from the catalogs just yet, but stay tuned for some projects that use them very soon!

You can also earn extra Stampin’ Rewards during Sale-a-Bration!  Stampin’ Rewards = FREE STUFF!  Here’s how it works:

Stampin’ Rewards are earned on orders or workshops of $150 or more (before tax and shipping).  The percentage goes up the larger the total: at $150, you earn 10% in rewards, at $300 you earn 12%, at $450 you earn 14%, and at $600 or more you earn 16%.  (At $450 or more you also get to choose any item in the catalog for 1/2 off!)  However, during Sale-a-Bration, with a purchase or workshop of $250 or more (before tax and shipping), you ALSO earn an EXTRA $25 in rewards!  So normally an order of that size would earn 10%, or $25 in rewards.  During Sale-a-Bration you earn that, plus another $25, for a total of $50 in rewards!  You also get to choose FIVE $50 Sale-a-Bration items (or a combination of $100 items and $50 items depending on your choices!)  So you can see how Sale-a-Bration is a great time to place an order or host a workshop!  It’s really a GREAT value for your money!

 

And finally, Sale-a-Bration is also a GREAT time to join Stampin’ Up!  In addition to the regular $125 starter kit for only $99, you get to choose ANY two additional stamp sets for FREE!  This can be an added value of up to $101 depending on which sets you choose.  You also get business supplies worth $65 AND it all ships directly to you for FREE.  With the $12.50 you save on shipping, the total value of your starter kit during Sale-a-Bration could be as much as $302!  But you will pay only $99! That’s a great deal no matter how you look at it!  Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is SO much easier than you think, and it’s so much fun!  You get all of the great products you already love for 20% off  (which can increase to 25% later on), plus you get access to new catalogs and products a full month before anyone else!  You also get access to exclusive content, promotions, and events that are only available to demonstrators. And you can try it all for up to six months during Sale-a-Bration with no risk and no obligation other than your starter kit!  Why not give it a try?  Please contact me for more info!  Or click HERE to join!  I welcome hobby demonstrators, and would LOVE to welcome you to my team!  🙂

If you have actually made it this far, THANK YOU!  As you can see, I am really excited about Sale-a-Bration this year!  I hope you are too!  Please contact me with any questions you have, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
