Ways to Earn Big

First things first. There are several ways to earn big during Sale-a-Bration. You can earn exclusive products for shopping – and you can earn a BONUS for shopping big (orders over $250 earn an additional $25 of Stampin’ Rewards). I’d love for you to join my InKing Royalty team – there’s a great benefit for joining during Sale-a-Bration.

Here’s a run-down of all the benefits:

  • SHOP.  During Sale-a-Bration, you can earn exclusive items from the Sale-a-Bration brochure for purchases (before shipping and taxes) of Stampin’ Up! products you already love – that includes purchases from the Annual Catalog, the Occasions Catalog, the Clearance Rack or other Online items (like Prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscriptions). Stampin’ Up! is offering two levels of Sale-a-Bration items this year:100010 - $50 purchase itemsFor every $50 you spend, you can select one Level One item to add to your order.

Since Sale-a-Bration kicked off in January, several new options have been added to the lineup of exclusive items you can earn during Sale-a-Bration. You want all of them, but they are only offered while supplies last. As Sale-a-Bration wraps up, we often run out of some of the items. I hope you grab up your freebies before they are gone!

To see all of the items available during Sale-a-Bration, click here or on the image below:

All About Sale-a-Bration, Brian KingDouble up! Remember – if you want to select French stamp sets, you can always select those, too! You may also want multiples of the papers or dies, so get them now!


Every year, people are SHOCKED when the retiring In Colors sell out and become unavailable. There’s always a chance that some (or all) of the retiring colors become a part of Stampin’ Up!’s permanent collection, but their reign as In Colors ends May 31 (or when they are sold out). If you love Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo or Sweet Sugarplum, then stock up now while you can earn Sale-a-Bration benefits.

Inks, papers, ribbons, ink refills – you want it all! You can click on the image below to see all of the products that coordinate with the 2016-2018 In Colors:

2016-2018 In ColorsDo you have Designer Series Papers with these colors? Be sure you have enough cardstock and ink to coordinate the way you want them to coordinate. Why not earn exclusive Sale-a-Bration rewards at the same time?!


We don’t yet know which stamp sets, dies or punches will be retiring and unavailable in Stampin’ Up!’s 2018-2019 Annual Catalog – the retiring list won’t be available until April. Here’s what we DO know, though – bundled pricing on all bundles will go away. Even if the stamps and coordinating dies/punches continue into the new Annual Catalog, all bundles will go away.

To run your finger over all of the bundles to see which ones you still need in your collection, click on the picture below to see them in my online store:

Bundle & Save 101700The bundles are a great way to save 10% while you collect the products you love. I’d love to see all of these bundles carry forward, but I’m also excited to make room for the new products that will certainly “wow!” us! Why not stock up now and earn Sale-a-Bration rewards in the meantime?


Once you’ve filled your shopping cart with Retiring 2016-2018 In Colors and Retiring Bundles, take a look at your necessities – the consumables you use all the time. You will feel so sad to order adhesive, for example, in April when you (1) don’t earn Sale-a-Bration products and (2) don’t earn the bonus Stampin’ Rewards for big orders. I don’t want you to feel sad, so consider grabbing up some of these items before Sale-a-Bration is over:

  • Adhesives & adhesive refills
  • Cardstock in all colors
  • Ink refills in all colors
  • Stampin’ Trimmer cutting blades
  • Big Shot cutting plates
  • Blender Pens
  • Sponge Daubers, Stamping Sponges, Sponge Brayers
  • Grid Paper
  • Stamp Cases

You’ll eventually need these – why not grab them up while you can still earn freebies from Sale-a-Bration?

    Thank you for the reminder, Brian, about the InColors. It is always hard to see some of them go and sometimes all of them!

  3. Thanks for the heads up Brian. I’ll check my supplies and In Color paper.

  4. I ordered a pack of each incolor that’s retiring. I like the colors and hope they come back one day.
