Circles Galore- Big Shot Dies 25% off and New Sweetie Pie Stamps!

Hi there friends,

Wow, do we have some amazing new deals for you this week! Now is the time to order some great tools for your Big Shot! These items are marked down 25% and are all very popular and trendy right now.

weekly deal

AND  how exciting is this new release of an adorable stamp set called Sweetie Pie:

sweetie pie

The artist of this set of stamps is an employee at Stampin’ Up! Her name is Cindy Bowden and she fashioned this new line after her love of Japanese  anime (especially Hayao Miyazaki’s work). Perhaps that love of cuteness (Asian-style) shows. In Japan they call it “kawaii.”   Kawaii (???? [kaw?ai?i], “lovable”, “cute”, or “adorable”) is the quality of cuteness in the context of Japanese culture. (Wikipedia)

I don’t know about you, but this amazing duo is going on my next order. You will have fun coloring the stamped images with Stampin’ Write Markers. Mix and match the images and sentiments. You will especially love playing with the frames! And remember: Classic Stampin’ Pads work best with photopolymer. 😉

If you are interested in placing an order, head over to my online store at: http://LynnStreifert.Stampinup.net

when you are shopping, type in this hostess code: GPQC3CWG

This hostess code will link you to me, my name will pop up as the hostess. Every month, if there are enough qualifying orders from customers ($150 or more in orders), then I pull a winner of hostess benefits and/or other prizes. Sometimes the orders are smaller and I may choose to select a winner of a gift certificate with me, off any of my classes or events.

Since this is the last month of Sale-a-bration, it is a good time to put in at least a $50 order, as you can pick a free item from Sale-a-bration. (I have a link to the sale-a-bration flyer over on the side bar of this blog).

Now is the perfect time to plan your spring cards, home decor, Easter projects and don’t forget Mother’s Day is around the corner. These items would work perfectly in any of your papercrafting!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for shopping with me, I love being your demonstrator and I appreciate your support!

Have a wonderful day,

~Lynn Streifert

Dress Framelits Class….


Hi there stamping friends!
I hope you had an awesome Monday! I did! Lots of fun and productivity here… So glad I took a vacation day for my birthday, so I could play, shop, and have yummy meals out… I also finished preparing for my Say Yes to the Dress Class, which is tomorrow night! I have a small group of stampers, which will make the evening very fun, I think.
What do you think of the line-up?


Well, this girl needs to get to bed, hope you leave me a comment, thanks!
Until tomorrow, happy stamping!

Last year at Leadership (2012 San Antonio) I was so excited to see Shelli and Sara come out on stage with their handmade skirts using our SU fabric!

And this is the bag we were given at Leadership, made out of the summer smooches fabric. I love my bag and use it for all my stamping events. So what do you think? Have you fallen in love with our fabric yet??

Dress Cards, Spring Catalog

Stampin’ Up Spring Catalog 2013 and a Dress Card!

Spring Catalog 2013

spring catalog 2013

Hi there stampers,

I have been having a very hard time loading the Stampin’ Up Catalogs up here on my blog’s sidebar (the widgets are NOT working for me)…. I decided to run my own blog and have (as you know) been blogging for 10 days now. Each and every day I watch as many blogging videos as I can to try to teach myself all the new blogging vocabulary and I hate to admit defeat, but I am close! I have emailed many other demonstrators and web designers for support and I await their guidance. (If any of you are bloggers, or widget experts, please let me know if you can help me, thanks!)

In the meantime, I do know how to load links, so here it is, a link to the Stampin’ Up Spring Catalog which is good until May 31, 2013. I have been having a lot of fun planning my clubs, classes, and workshops around this refreshing new offering of stamps, papers, tools, dies, and embellishments.

I think the item that surprises me the most, is the All Dressed Up Bundle, at the back of the catalog! At first glance, I thought it was more girly than I am, and I wasn’t sure if my customers would be enthusiastic about it either. Then I went to Leadership in January and saw the hundreds of possibilities and I changed my mind!! And I was reminded how much I loved playing with paper dolls (and Colorforms) as a little girl. I’ll bet you’ll fall in love with these products too! Let me know if you’d like to book a workshop and make dress cards! (When you are the hostess, you get to pick whatever cards you want to make at your party!)

Also, I am having a “Say Yes to the Dress” class on Friday March 22nd. That is my last class I’ve planned for the month of March. This is due to how early Easter and Spring Break are this year. I am finishing up my April calendar, so let me know if there’s a class you’d like to attend or a party you’d like to have at your house.

Here is a card I made this morning for a birthday, the front is a little plain and simple, which makes the inside a bit of a surprise, what do you think?

Hope you enjoy these cards, leave a comment if you have any questions! Until tomorrow, happy stamping!

PS: there is room in our Spring Fling event on March 21st! RSVP today to save your spot! (Check yesterday’s blog for all the details) thanks!
