3 Things You Should Look at Today

It’s important to take a step back every once in a while to take a closer look at what’s in front of us. Today I’m sharing a few things I don’t want you to miss out on. It’s my job to find these things and point them out. If you are already aware (you always pay such close attention), then yay! If these are new to you, then yay!


As you flipped through the adorable Sale-a-Bration brochure, there are some great samples to showcase the free products you can earn during Sale-a-Bration. There are two new-to-me surprises inside the brochure that I missed the first forty-five times I flipped through it.

Included in the pages of the Sale-a-Bration brochure are two Project Collections – one product number that gives you everything you need to make the projects show on the corresponding pages. One coordinates with the Darling Donkeys stamp set, and one coordinates with the Field & Flower Designer Series Paper. Here’s more about each:

The Suite Sampler stamp set is hidden at the back of Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2021 Mini Catalog. Unless it’s been pointed out to you, you might have missed it. Here’s a look at the Suite Sampler stamp set:

You can pick up this host set with only $12.50 of your Stampin’ Rewards. What fun!


On December 13, I shared the news that Whisper White would be retiring. We were a little shocked at first, but the shock quickly wore off as we were introduced to the new Basic White. If you’d like to read more about what happened, CLICK HERE to read that post.

At the times, we were all concerned for when we’d have a replacement for our beloved Whisper White. All is good now, and the company is all stocked up with Basic White products. Here are links to the new paper products in my online store:


I shared this video on December 13, but it’s worth another look-see. The informative video from Stampin’ Up! shows us how the new Basic White compares with old Whisper White:

In summary, here are three things you don’t want to pass by without a second look:

  • Sale-a-Bration Project Kits
  • Suite Sampler Host Stamp Set
  • Basic White Supplies
