The following is a repost from Becky Higgins’ Blog


Sale-A-Bration is one of the biggest promotions that Stampin’ Up! offers each year and we’re thrilled to be a part of it in 2015!! It provides customers with a way to earn FREE product for every $50 they spend … who doesn’t love that? As part of this promotion, we have a new Project Life by Stampin’ Up! Mini Card Collection called This Day (as seen on page. 8 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure). It’s filled with bright colors and everyday designs so it will fit perfectly with your photos and stories.


One of the easiest ways to spend your $50 and earn this free card set is to purchase theLet’s Get Away bundle filled with some of the newest products in the Project Life by Stampin’ Up product line. Of course, you’re not limited to the bundled deal – any $50 purchase earns you free goodies!! Taking advantage of the Sale-A-Bration promotion is a great way to stock up on the products that you want/need while earning free “extras” that you can use yourself or give as gifts! You’ll get to choose one free product from the SAB brochure for every $50 that you spend (before tax and shipping).

A few members of our creative team had the chance to play with the This Day Mini Card Collection so we could share with you just how darling it looks in completed pages … Enjoy the inspiration!

Putting VIDEOS into your Project Life and MDS projects – WHAT???!!! MULTIMEDIA MEMORY KEEPING!

We all take a gazillion photos to document our life.  We ALSO take videos – but what do we do with them?  How can we keep them and how can we document them in our memory keeping Project Life pages to enjoy again and again?  The answer is simple – upload your videos to YouTube and then assign a QR code (Quick Response Code) to them – print them out and insert them into your pages!  The QR code is actually a jpeg file which means you can also insert it into your MDS (digital) projects just like you do a photo, so you can resize it to suit your needs.

Download a FREE QR Reader app onto your smartphone, Nook, tablet, iPod, iPad or other device and then SCAN the QR code on your page and you will be able to watch your videos for years to come!  HOW COOL IS THIS??

Here is a page I did – do you see my QR code in the bottom right pocket?

Fourth Try Cropped
If you have a QR Reader already on your smartphone or device, you could actually scan it right now off your computer screen and it should play my video that I took at the Manager’s Reception in Orlando!

Now you can document the first steps of a child, your child’s activities, fun times, a father/daughter dance at her wedding, the birth of a child in their baby book, your loved ones, and those special moments in life in your projects.  Are you ready to take your memory keeping to a higher level?

To make it easy for you, I have a tutorial with easy to follow instructions, available for only $5.00.  The steps are easy to follow and have all the links included for you to begin creating your own QR codes to incorporate your videos into your projects. Click on the Buy Now button below and I will e-mail the tutorial to you.  Thank you!  Get ready for some FUN in your projects!
