Sale-A-Bration is ending soon and I really really don't want you to miss out on getting FREE stuff. I mean, are there a whole lot more things better than FREE? Don't let time run out on you!
Is the conversation you are having with yourself something like this…
There are a couple Sale-A-Bration things I really want but there really isn't anything I need right now. I kinda bought what I want already.
If so, I can totally relate. Here is what I did yesterday.
I looked at what I use all the freakin' time. If you have ever watched one of my YouTube videos, you know I have a relationship with glue dots and dimensions that might border on insane or unhealthy. I use them on almost everything I create.
I also use them around my house – dimensionals are fab behind pictures on the wall that really want to hang crooked.
So I go through that list, and don't worry – I am sharing my list below.
Adhesive – how much adhesive do you go through in a year? Inventory your stash and see what you have, estimate how much you use, multiply it up and make one bulk order and grab what I am sure will be a stash of FREEBIES! We have SNAIL (11 refills get you a FREE item) , Fast Fuse (8 refills = FREE item), the Fine Tip Glue Pen, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Mini Glue Dots (get 10, get a FREE item), Tear & Tape (8 of these will get you something FREE), Stampin' Dimensionals (lucky 13 packs gets you a FREE goodie) and Foam Adhesive Strips (great for shaker cards!). Mix it up, never worry about running out for a long time, always have exactly what you need and get some FREE items for being so prepared!
Envelopes – Yes you can get envelopes “cheaper” at the office supply places. And that's what they are – “cheaper”. Have you ever compared the envelopes from Stampin' Up! and the ones from, say, Staples? There's no comparison! If you want to get something comparable in weight at Staples – and no, they aren't quite as nice – you pay DOUBLE (29 cents at Staples vs. 16 cents from Stampin' Up!).
If you put anything with more than one layer in it and any embellishments on the front – jewels, pearls, bows (and who doesn't do that, right?) – it just tears right through. Now, is that worth it? NO WAY! Eight packages of Stampin' Up!'s Medium envelopes will get you a FREE item and you will have almost enough envies to send a card a day!
Card stock: There are some colors I cannot live without – like if I don't have an extra package of each of these colors, I start to freak out. I use these colors almost every time I create. These are my faves:
Whisper White very vanilla smoky slate crumb cake basic black real red daffodil delight melon mambo
Ink Refills – Unlike your gas tank in your car you don't know when your ink pad is running dry until it's running dry! I stamp a LOT and sometimes I am happily groovin' along and all of a sudden my ink pad needs some love! And not just that, but there are so many fun techniques you can do with ink refills and there's nothing worse than being all inspired and ready and excited and not have what you need to actually play. Stampin' Up! ink refills are an amazing deal at just $3.25 for all of the core colors including the In Colors. Sixteen refills gets you a FREEBIE and since we have 50 colors, rounding out your inventory will be easy. Click here to see them all.
Basic Cardstock – We all have our go-to colors. Take a look at your projects, figure out what you go through at lightning speed and make a list. There is nothing that is more “PHEW!” inducing than thinking you are out of something and seeing you have some back up ready to go. I go through a TON of Whisper White so I try to keep several packages in stock. And if you haven't tried out the Whisper White Thick Cardstock add a package now! It's PERFECT for card bases and I have been using it lately for my die cut pieces because it adds just enough heft to cut outs to make them crisp and sharp and sturdy. Six packages of Whisper White gets you a FREE goodie and just 7 packages of colored cardstock get you to a FREE item. Click here to see ALL Stampin' Up! cardstock in all its glory.
Project Life – If you are an avid Project Life scrapbooker OR if you haven't tried it out yet, now is a GREAT time to load up on Project Life basics like Pocket Pages, albums or even the awesome coordinating Card Collections and Accessory Packs. All the 12 X 12 Project Life by Stampin' Up! Pocket Page packs are just $7.00 so you can mix and match to your heart's content – just 8 packs gets you a FREE item! And the two exclusive Project Life Framelits Dies sets are $25.00 each – get both and you can pick something FREE! And here's a little secret – the Card Collections and Accessory Packs are AWESOME for making cards! All the Card Collections are $16 and Accessory Packs are $10 – $18 so you can pick a few that you like, take something for FREE and you will have cards for
days weeks months!
Of course another way you can get to FREE goodies is to treat yourself by taking a good look at your wish list and perhaps making the decision that now is the time to indulge. Honestly, when you really look at it, you could consider that you are getting a discount of $10 – $20 per freebie on your wish list items if you consider the value of the FREE item(s) you would get.
Take your inventories, make your list, head on over to my online store and get your FREE stuff NOW before they are sold out. With Sale-A-Bration ending soon, everyone is doing this right now so don't miss out!
