Have you seen all of the great new stamps from Stampin' Up! lately? Here is your chance to win one of the sets from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!

Lisa McDowell, a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, has donated the brand new, unmounted set that you see pictured above.

Even if you don't win it here, it could be yours free when you buy product. See details here.

Also out on March 1st was the new Mini Catalog. There are lots of neat stamp sets - make sure you check it out.

Did I mention the stamps sets in the S-A-B and new Mini are all die-cut?! This makes assembly quick and easy!

Now for how you win...
All you have to do is check out Lisa's SU! site and leave a comment here with the following:
- Your favorite stamp set from any of the new catalogs.
- First Name and Last Initial
- Email Address

March 11th, Midnight CST
Specifics: All comments must include your first name and last initial. If your comment is not linked to a blog that has "contact me" info, you must also include your email address*. ie: "Anonymous" posts must have all three pieces of info to qualify.

Winner will be announced here on March 12th.

*I will not use the email address to SPAM you. If you feel more comfortable inserting spaces in the address, that is fine. I just don't want to have to track down a lot of anonymous winners. If you do not include your email address, or a link to a blog with contact info, your entry will be voided.
