I’m sorry that I haven’t posted in a while, the past 3 weeks have been difficult as my sweet mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer that has spread to her stomach. During her week long hospital stay, in addition to biopsies, she had a chemo power port put in and today started her weekly chemo treatments. My family and I are so thankful for the wonderful doctors, nurses, friends and family who have been so positive and helpful. I needed to cancel several card classes, swaps, blog hops and team get togethers these past 3 weeks so I could spend time with my family. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I know it will be a long and challenging road, but with our faith, family and each other, we will travel this path together. I have had no real desire (up until today) to even go in my craft room. But after talking to my mom about how chemo went today, she was full of funny stories and no side effects (yet). So tonight I made some cards, planned my club for this weekend, and decided to write a blog post.
I went online to the Stampin’ Up! website today to catch up on some updates and wanted to pass on some news to you:
For the first time ever, first-time subscribers can buy one month at the regular price of $19.95 and get the second month FREE! It’s a Paper Pumpkin BOGO deal that you don’t want to miss! Sign up at here and use BOGO for the promo code. Offer runs until October 10, 2016.
Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription service by Stampin’ Up! that delivers all the stamps, ink, and paper you need to create a papercrafting project. Everything is cut and ready to go so you can skip to the fun!
If you subscribe with the promo code between now and September 10, you will pay full price for the September kit and get the October kit free.
If you subscribe between September 11 and October 10, your first kit will be the October kit and you will get the November kit free.
The fine print:
- After the first two months, the subscription will continue for $19.95 + tax per month (shipping included) unless cancelled or suspended. Ends October 10, 2016.
- This offer is open to first-time subscribers only (This is tracked by the email account you sign up with, if you have a different email from one you used previously, then this deal could work for you.)
- Not valid on prepaid subscriptions.
- Ends October 10, 2016 (the last day to subscribe and get the October kit).
- Offer invalid if subscription is suspended or cancelled during the first two months. In other words, subscribers cannot cancel or suspend their subscription during their first two months—if they do, the offer is void. You can’t put your subscription on hold or cancel until after the first two full months.
- After you enter your shipping address and credit card info, be sure to type in my name Lynn Streifert as your demonstrator, so I will get credit for your order.
The stamp sets that come in each month’s kit are so versatile and come in handy for lots of other card making and paper crafts!!
Stampin’ Up! also has some overstock items, here are the sale items good through September 14th. I’m sorry I didn’t post about the deals last week (there were some metallic embellishments). These are some great deals:

No need for you to apologize! Your mother needs your support now. Prayers will be said for her. God Bless.
Lynn, I’m so sorry to hear this! Please know my thoughts are with you & your Mom.
Thank you so much Bobbi!
Lynn, So sorry to hear about your mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at a time when your mother needs everyone’s support. Also, take time for yourself when you can and do what you like to do most. Ron
Thank you so much Ron!
I don’t know you or your family but pray that all goes well. Sounds like your mom is in good spirits and that is the best thing that can happen. A positive attitude and prayer and those who love her giving support is what she needs most. I’ve been through this several times, not easy but we all get through
