A Graduation and Sale-A-Bration Celebration

Happy New Year Everyone!!

We have a major celebration happening in our family this Friday.  My husband’s son is graduating from the Police Academy.  Jonathan has wanted to be on the police force for a long time and has worked hard since graduating from college with a degree in Criminology.  He was accepted into the police academy last spring and will be a full member of the force.  It was a grueling 6 months for him, with physical and mental training required and where many recruits don’t make it through.  We are very proud of him.

This is the card I made for him to celebrate his accomplishment.  The Night of Navy featured in the Truly Gentleman DSP made the perfect base for a police graduation card.

I used the new Tailored Tag Punch and pieces of the DSP to create the background.  You can see the inspiration for this card on page 44 of the Occasions catalog.  I switched up the sentiment and added cut out Celebrate from the Sale-a-Bration brochure.  I cut out three and glued them together to give some depth.

See the product list at the bottom of this post.  The Punch and the stamp set are offered as a bundle, saving you 10% over purchasing them separately.  If you were to order the stamp/punch bundle + the DSP + either the True Gentleman Buttons or the Night of Navy 3/8″ Curduroy Ribbon you would qualify for a free Sale-a-bration item.  See more below!!




For every $50 you spend Jan 3 – Mar 31, you’ll receive a free Sale-A-Bration product. For anyone who has enjoyed Sale-A-Bration in the past, we have an exciting new announcement for this year: We now have a new reward level, giving you more flexibility and options for your free items. There are stamp sets, paper, kits, Memories and more card pack, cards and envelops,  even dies this year. So many choices.

Let’s break it down:
  • If you spend $50, you get one free level 1 product.
  • If you spend $100, you get one free level 2 product, OR, you can choose two level 1 items.
  • If you spend $150, you have the option to choose three level 1 items or one level 1 item and one level 2 item.

This new option allows you to create a personalized Sale-A-Bration experience!


If you host a party between Jan 3 – Mar 31, with your friends or just place your own order, and it is over $250 in products, you will automatically earn the standard 10% PLUS an additional $25 in free money to spend on even more stuff. AND you or your party guests get all those free items for each $50. So that means another 5 free items from the SAB brochure.
