Happy New Year friends,

Sending you many happy thoughts today and a new card. I love starting a new year and especially since it’s also the time of year for Sale-A-bration (SAB).  Today’s post includes a couple of short videos showcasing some items from the Jan-June Mini catalog and the new Mini Stamp Cut & Emboss Machine.   If you’re new to Stampin’ Up! or my blog, SAB is when you get rewarded with free items when you make a minimum $50 order AND there is no limit.  This time of year the new Jan – June Mini Catalog & SAB catalogs are available along with the Annual Catalog.  You can see them all here on my blog, you just click on the cover of the catalog to see all the wonderful new products available today!  Based on the device you’re viewing the catalogs are either at the bottom or on the right side of your screen.

I’ve used the beautiful Flower & Field Designer Series Paper (DSP)# 155223.  It’s one of the free items with a $50 purchase (before sales tax & shipping).  It includes 12 sheets, 2 sheets of 6 double sided designs.  The sheets are 12″X12″, acid-free and lignin free and one of my favorite new stamp sets, Happy Thoughts stamp set from the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog (page 28.)  The Happy Thoughts stamp set has sentiments for both the outside of your card and the inside of the card.  I’ve used the Happy Birthday sentiment on today’s card and you can see the coordinating sentiment in the second photo.


FLOWER & FIELD DSP # 155223 and Happy Thoughts Stamp Set # 154507


Here’s the inside of the card:


Sentiment inside is from the Happy Thoughts stamp set # 154507

The inside reads, “Today is great because it’s all about you – the great person you are, the great things that you do.”  Don’t you just love that?

Here’s another card using the same products and same card measurements, it’s just in a vertical orientation.  Which do you prefer?  Horizontal or Vertical orientation?

Make sure you keep reading to find the card measurements for this easy fun fold card.  You’ll find them after the Shopping List and after the videos!

Shopping List



  • Just Jade cardstock – 7 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ and scored at 3 1/4″ plus a scrap piece to cut out the layer behind the sentiment
  • White cardstock – 5 1/4″ X 4″ for the inside of the card plus a scrap piece to stamp and die cut the sentiment layer for the front of the card
  • Flower & Field DSP – 5 1/4″ X 4″ and then cut 1″ off.
    • Adhere the floral piece to the front of the card and flip the 1″ piece and adhere to the inside of the card.
  • I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies for easy layering of the stamped Happy Birthday sentiment.  No measuring required since they nest beautifully!
  • TIP:  Make sure your stamped sentiment layer doesn’t extend the front of the card.  (See photos above.)

Lots of new and exciting information today!  I encourage you to watch the short videos I’ve included in today’s post and to look at the catalogs.
