Today, I'm going to say a final farewell to 2018 Sale-a-bration Freebies

and then at the end of this post I'll share what's next!

Be sure to scroll all the way down to see it all.

Coloring on Glossy Designer Paper


This is it.  Tomorrow is the final day to earn FREE Sale-a-Braton product.  What was your favorite Sale-a-bration goodies this year?  Was it the Springtime Foil Paper?   Or......

Lots of Lavender Stampin' Up!

was it the Lots of Lavender Stamp set which I think look like lovely lilacs?


Party Panda Stampin' Up!

Maybe it was the fun and playful Party Panda Stamp Set.

Beautiful Peacock Stampin' Up!


Or perhaps you preferred the lovely flowing Beautiful Peacock Stamp set with its fun random flowers.

Blooming Basket Stampin' Up!

Did you find it hard to resist the Blooming Basket Bundle?  Did you find it relaxing to color the Blooming Basket?  And Did it tickle you to emboss with the Basket Weave Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder?



Did you love those sneakers and that guitar from the Epic Celebration stamp Set?


Amazing You Stampin' Up!

Did you enjoy making cards with the Amazing You stamp set to send to all the amazing people in your life.  Did you fall in love with the Celebrate You Thinlits dies?   There's plenty more Sale-a-bration Products that I haven't mentioned.  What were your favorites?

Next week, I'm heading for Milwaukee, Wisconsin for Stampin' Up! OnStage!  I love being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!!! I can't wait to get my hands on the New Stampin' Up! Catalog!  You can see in the photo above that Sara Douglas, Stampin' Up! CEO, is giving us a little tease about the new catalog.  


Today and tomorrow, March 30 and March 31 are the final days of Sale-a-bration.  If you want to get in on these Freebies, this is your last chance to scoop them up.  


Sale-a-bration is a super fun time of year, but then there's April and you know what that means!   It means that the Stampin' Up! Retirement list will be revealed.   What's going?  What's Staying?  

image from www.stampinup.comOne thing that I know that's going for sure and for certain is the anything that includes the 2016-2018 In Colors.  I highly recommend stocking up now on inks, ink refills and card stock, because once the Retirement list is announced these things could be gone in the blink of an eye.




Have a fabulous weekend and Happy Easter,

True Gentleman Personalized Birthday Card

How to Make a Personalized Birthday Card

Hello Friends,

It's hard to believe that my baby boy just turned 28!  Of course, such a momentous occasion calls for a handmade card, because that's what I do!   Bryan is a Forester so I used the Seasonal Layers Dies along with the Large Numbers die to make a personalized Birthday Card just for him.


Bryan is my son with a ready smile.  I snapped this picture of him when we were in the midst of making Maple Syrup.  Happy Birthday, Bryan!

Personalized Birthday Card

I love this sentiment stamp from the Number of years stamp set.  It sums up how I feel about Bryan.  And the True Gentleman Designer Paper has such a masculine feel.  It's a sure fire win for cards for the guys.  If you find yourself having a hard time coming up with ideas for making masculine cards, try starting with a good masculine paper.
