My Favorite Things – Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Sale-a-Bration Brochure

Last week I introduced you to Stampin’ Up!’s brand new 2019 Occasions Catalog and the accompanying 2019 Sale-a-Bration Brochure. So many incredible products in these two books. If you would like to take a look at all the Occasions suites or download either of the books, please click here.

Sale-a-Bration is an amazing, annual event during which we can earn all kinds of free product – either by shopping or joining. I’d love for you to get the most out of this year’s Sale-a-Bration event, so I have captured all of the ways you can earn free product here.

The 2019 Sale-a-Bration brochure is filled with lots of amazing products that you can earn with purchases of $50 or $100. Today I’m sharing my favorites from these options. Here’s a look at the 2019 Sale-a-Bration brochure:

I always love the launch of a new catalog – what’s not to love?! Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog and 2019 Sale-a-Bration Brochure are over-the-top awesome! There are so many great new products showcased in this new book! Stampin’ Up!’ Demonstrators have enjoyed the opportunity to play with these new items since November and December, and we’ve enjoyed sharing our new projects with you. Now we get to share these products with you – for real. What fun! Hopefully this list of my favorite things will help you to shuffle or whittle down your list – or it might inspire you to add some items you overlooked. 🙂 Either way, I’m happy to share my favorites from the book with you.

On Saturday I started sharing my list of favorites from the Occasions Catalog (you can review that list here). Today I’m sharing my favorite Sale-a-Bration products. In an effort to narrow down my list a bit, I’ve lumped my favorites into categories.  Some are themes, some are product lines and some are accessories.  Regardless, these are some of my favorite things in these books.


If you love butterflies (and I know you do), then there are three products in the Sale-a-Bration that are on the top of your list. Each item is a perfect complement to the products in the Occasions Catalogs’ Gingham Gala Suite. Here’s a look at this suite (you can click on this link to see all of the products in my online store:

Gingham Gala Suite, Stampin' Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog, 11026Let’s take a look at all three of the Sale-a-Bration products that coordinate with this suite.

Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

You can select the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper as your free gift with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration. Not only does each page of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper feature a colorful page of butterflies or butterfly-adjacent designs, but each page also features a side of black-and-white patterns. Oh, how I love that! Not only does this paper serve as a gorgeous backdrop for your Butterfly Gala Bundle, but many of these butterflies can be punched out with your Butterfly Duet punch. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this pack of papers:

Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, 2019 Sale-a-Bration 149622How gorgeous are these pages? I’m working on a project now that features one of these pages – excited to share it with you later this week.

Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack

The five colors of delicate 1/4″ organdy ribbon, a free option for a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration, are the same five colors that are featured in the Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper in the Occasions Catalog. How smart is that?! If you have the paper (and you should), then this pack of ribbons is a great win. Here’s a look at this sweet ribbon:Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack, Stampin' Up! 2019 Sale-a-Bration, 149623I shared a sneak peek project in December that featured this ribbon and the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. This card shows both the colorful side of the paper and the black-and-white side. You can click on this project to read that post:

There are some really great stamp sets in this year’s Sale-a-Bration brochure. It’s hard to pick favorites because they each have their own merits, but that’s what this post is all about. Here are my two favorite stamp sets:

Home to Roost

The Home to Roost stamp set is a free option with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration. It took me a bit to warm up to the rooster (unlike most of my blog readers who left comments yesterday, my next door neighbor doesn’t have a rooster) in the set, but once I figured out the colors I’d use for his feathers and body, I was sold. With just some Stampin’ Blends, he’s dapper and handsome. Here’s a look at the Home to Roost set:

Home to Roost, Stampin' Up! 149736The sentiments in the set are pretty incredible, too! Don’t look past those if you aren’t initially sold on the rooster. Here’s a look at a card I shared yesterday that features our feathered friend (you can click on the photo to read yesterday’s post about this card):

Part of My Story

I love a stamp set with great sentiments. The Part of My Story stamp set was created with input from Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators and features a wide variety of great sentiments. This set is a free option with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration. Just take a look at the fun sentiments in this set:

Part of My Story, Stampin' Up!, 2019 Sale-a-Bration 149719Don’t you love all of them? In such a short time, I’ve already used three of these sentiments on cards I’ve share on my blog – you can click on any of these photos to read the original posts:

Tea Time Framelits Dies

Coffee and tea sets are all the rage right now. If it has a coffee cup or a tea mug, it’s a must-have with most of my customers. All bets are off if it has a tea pot. One of the products you can select for free with a $100 order during Sale-a-Bration is the Tea Time Framelits Dies. Here’s a look at these dies:

Tea Time Framelits Dies, Stampin' Up! 2019 Sale-a-Bration 149697While the tea pot is quite lovely on it’s own, it works best with a stamp set. Well, do I have wonderful news to share! The Tea Time Framelits Dies (available in Sale-a-Bration) coordinate with the Tea Together stamp set in the Occasions Catalog. Here’s a look at the coordinating stamp set:

Tea Together, Stampin' Up! 148779This set and dies are a standout on the face of the Sale-a-Bration catalog. Can you spot them? Here’s a closer look at the three cards on the cover:2019 Sale-a-Bration coverNot only are the tea cups from this set, but the flower on that card is from the set. All of the flowers on the card on the left are also from the set.

I hope my list of favorites has helped you to confirmed your wish list – or helped you find something else you can’t live without. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today!
