It’s Sale-a-Bration! And that means free products! For every $50 increment you spend in February and March, you can select something from the special brochure. This card uses one of those selections. I used the Berry Blessing Bundle which I got free with an order over $100. I really love both the stamp set and the Designer Series Paper and they coordinate with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle found in the January-June Mini Catalog too!

The card layout is really easy. I will share a similar card next week using the Sweet Strawberry set.

Shopping strategies

I always try to aim for around $70 or $150, $300, or $450 orders. Here’s why

  • $70 because shipping is 10% or $6.95, whichever is greater. If I buy less than $69.50, I’m paying extra for shipping.
  • $150 because that gives me 10% free products through Stampin’ Rewards. This is my typical order.
  • $300 because Stampin’ Rewards goes up to 12%
  • $450 because Stampin’ Rewards goes up to 14% and you get 50% of an item.
  • During Sale-a-Bration, I also aim for any $50 increment.
  • If I get close to any of those target prices but don’t quite meet the minimum, I lose out. I like to make the most of my money!

I want you to get the most for your money too! For the Berry Blessings Bundle, you need a $100 order. The card stock, ink, envelopes, twine, and Stampin’ Dimensionals are just $56, so why not buy the dies and the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine?

That not only qualifies you for the bundle, you will get an additional Sale-a-Bration item and $15 in Shopper Rewards. You might use it for the Sweet Strawberry Stamp set. It’s $18, so you would just need to pay the extra $3 overage. Or you may want to select the Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755), Stampin’ Seal (152813), or any other products you’ve had your eye on.

  • Add $15.45 for shipping and your grand total would be 169.95. Full disclosure, taxes would be added.

Click the products below for the products I used to make this card. (You may have to add the Sale-a-Bration items in a different section of the order.

But here’s another idea.

I think every shopper who spends over $99 should consider joining my team. Stampin’ Up! team members get a starter kit for $99, free shipping, and then every order after that is 20% off for at least 3 months and as long as they stay active.

If you click Join my team, select these items as your starter kit. I did not put direct links because you’ll be entering your order in a different way.

Total $125 and would hit the Starter Kit target price perfectly

  • You would not get any Sale-a-Bration items with this purchase
  • You would get 5 packs of Designer Series Paper free. If you could buy those today, you would pay $57.50.
  • In total, you’d get $182.50 worth of product (plus catalogs and business supplies).
  • You would pay $99 and nothing for shipping.

Then, as a demonstrator (once you get your demonstrator ID) you could order the rest of the supplies and reach the $100 target price for the Berry Blessings and Berry Delight Designer Series Paper.

  • This order adds up to $100.25.
  • You would get the Berry Blessings and Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper for Sale-a-Bration.
  • As a demonstrator, you would get 20% off and pay $80.20. And you would keep saving 20% as long as you maintain active demonstrator status.
  • Adding $10 shipping for that second order, your grand total would be $189.20

Please note that while that’s $19.25 over the first option you get the 5 packs of Designer Series Paper, the Paper Trimmer, the Strawberry Builder Punch, Clear Blocks A, B, & C, and the Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The only thing you would miss out on is the additional Sale-a-Bration item.

Like I said, I want you to get the most for your money!
