Everything you will need (except scissors) is included for just $19.95 (plus tax).

Here is the custom link that will take you directly to my website and here’s how to order:

Stamp Out Breast Cancer!

  
To show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Paper Pumpkin boxes are going PINK for the month of October! And, Stampin’ Up! will make a donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The best part — Paper Pumpkin subscribers will determine the amount of the donation!
For those of you who don’t know, paper pumpkin is the name of our adorable monthly arts and crafts kit that comes in the mail with everything you need to complete the cards or projects.

  
Stampin’ Up! will donate:  

  • ​$1 for every active Paper Pumpkin subscriber.
  • Plus, an additional $1 for every new subscriber who signs up by October 10. 
  •  That means $2 for every NEW subscriber!

Wondering how to get started?

  • Subscribe by clicking here: www.paperpumpkin.com and be sure to type in my name as your demonstrator (Lynn Streifert). You will earn rewards points from me for every month you are active (good towards adhesives, classes, etc). (These reward points are in lieu of the monthly paper pumpkin party I used to offer all my subscribers as attendance was dwindling and I wanted to reward those who stayed active with paper pumpkin even if I couldn’t offer an event). 
  • Or I can help you order a monthly subscription on one of my orders- if you’re new to Paper Pumpkin you can receive a 1, 3, 6 or 12 month subscriptions. 
  • Your first kit will arrive in a limited-edition pink box that you’ll want to hold onto forever-and Stampin’ Up! will donate $2 because you’re new!
  • Stay active if you’re a current subscriber so Stampin’ Up! can donate $1 for you. Only those who receive the October shipment will be counted for the donation.
  • Help spread the word! Let’s all rally for new Paper Pumpkin subscribers to raise as much for this cause as possible.

More About the Breast Cancer Research Foundation 

BCRF is a world-class organization, dedicated to ending breast cancer and Stampin’ Up! is excited to be teaming up with them to make this happen. Their mission is to advance the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer. To learn about more ways to help, please visit www.bcrfcure.org

Additional Details: 

  • New subscribers are those who signed up between September 11 and October 10, 2015 and have not been a Paper Pumpkin subscriber at any time in the past. (Stampin’ Up! tracks you by your email address) 
  • All funds will be donated in US dollars.
  • Mini spoiler alert! The October project inside the pink box is just as awesome as always, but according to Stampin’ Up!, it is NOT a pink project.
  • Funds will be donated based on number of subscribers instead of boxes shipped. But, if you want more than one pink box, you can always increase your subscription quantity by logging into your account at PaperPumpkin.com before October 10.

What a worthy cause and I’m so proud to be a part of the Stampin’ Up! family! Do you want to join me in helping to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer? I hope to hear from you!! 

*And don’t forget I’m excepting registrations for my team and I are offering a card making event called Fall Fest on Saturday, October 3 (at the burnt Hills United Methodist Church from 2 to 5 PM ) I will be posting photos tomorrow and a registration form hope you can make it!

Have a wonderful day!

Retiring Past Paper Pumpkin Kits

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads out there. My dad is away this weekend, so we will be celebrating one night this week when he is home from camp. I decided to catch up on some work in the craft room, including blogging and sending some emails. I thought you would be interested to learn that Stampin’ Up! has announced that there will be some of our past kits that will be retiring on June 27th- so if you want them, get them before they’re gone!

 

http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=112102

Hurry and order before June 27th, after that they are “retired” and no longer available. As an added incentive, for any online orders between now and June 30th (including these Paper Pumpkin specials, OR anything you just want to order), I have a FREE gift for you- that I will pop in the mail (or local peeps I will give you) as my thanks! I am very close to reaching my sales goal for the month of June, and I need a little help to push me over, (about $500 away from a sweet spot too). So,  I will give you either a clear “D” size paper pumpkin block or one sheet of dimensions with each $25 order from my online store. You must use Hostess Code: XFNCQJF2
Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful afternoon.

Whirlwind Fun…Monthly Team Get Together!

Hi Stamping Friends!

Without a doubt, one of the best perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is getting together with other demos for stamping fun! This month (Thursday night to be exact) was our Whirlwind Stampers get together led by my awesome upline Dania Welch! I help her organize the sign ups for M&T’s, attending, and swapping. I really look forward to seeing this group of talented demos every month- it is “stamping therapy time”- one thing we all agree on, is getting together with people with similar interests is a fun de-stressor from real life.

Anyway- this month’s projects were just out of this world- look at these amazing cards:

11050946_10152630500086781_352567663_nFirst card was created by one of my uber talented downline- Amye! Don’t you just adore these colors together? And I was looking to extend one of my stems- I discovered another wonderful feature of photopolymer stamps- I could bend the bottom half that I didn’t need around to the back of the block so it didn’t get in my way- so awesome to have stamps so flexible you can change their shape!! If you haven’t received your Lotus Blossom stamp set yet- this is the LAST month of Sale-a-bration so you can still earn this baby for FREE- just place a $50 order and you can select this as your free SAB item.

 

11056990_10152630500236781_479094256_n

Next up was this awesome card and box project brought to us by the amazing Anne K! She used her Paper Pumpkin this month and changed up the card design just a bit…don’t you just love this SPRING accordion card?? Love the colors and hope this helps us really bring spring forward soon!

11040764_10152630500281781_1489871826_n

 

I forgot to add pearls to my butterflies, will definitely add them as it is gorgeous with them! Isn’t this a great gift to give someone who needs a ‘pick me up’? Or just lovely home décor for your mantle. Paper Pumpkin refill kit for this month is on my next order, another perk of PP is that you can purchase any available past kits or refills that you want. Love it!

11051261_10152630500216781_1624739823_n

 

Last, but definitely not least- is this amazing masculine card by Dania! Can you tell the sentiment is embossed? It really pops, it was nice to get a closer look at this stamp set as I’ve been wondering if I should get it or not, you got it- going on my next order. The designer paper is a stack, and I’m getting that too- as it’s a bundle for 15% off retail.

1600173_10152630499931781_1862989748_n

 

We decided to go back to our small 2″ square samplers for our swaps this month. People have to sign up by a certain date (two demos in our group live far away so they mail their swaps so they can participate long distance). I plan to mount these over the weekend and get them in a frame- just beautiful work – I love every one of these swaps! Can you tell which one is mine? So fun to make them!

10951461_10152630500411781_1228963619_n

Just a reminder that our $5 off paper pumpkin 3 month subscription is almost over- if you want to get the March kit- purchase this pre-paid subscription by Tuesday March 10th at midnight (and make sure you follow the directions in the email you will receive to redeem the kit- you must sign in to your account and fill in your address by March 10th to get this month’s kit). **Please let me know if you’d like me to do this step for you- I’m happy to help you!  Or if you want to just go and sign up for monthly kit ($19.95 per month includes shipping; just add tax):

https://mypaperpumpkin.com?demoid=2043263

 

I sent out my March Monthly e-Newsletter with all my classes, events, team get togethers and news yesterday to my customers and downline. If you didn’t receive it, and you’d like to see what I’m offering, here is a link to my newsletter- I welcome anyone to attend my classes- whether you are a new stamper, experienced, a demo or former demo- all are welcome. I do adhere to sign up deadlines and pre-registration as I have so many supplies to order and don’t want to plan an event and then have cancelations… that’s no fun and a huge waste of time and materials for me. I hope you understand, I am trying my hardest to run a stamping business, as well as meet all my customer’s needs, not easy at all… but I try to always do my best for you.

March Newsletter and Events

Well that’s all for today- thanks so much for stopping by to read my blog! I hope you have some crafty fun planned this weekend! Would love to hear from you- I really treasure each comment and thank you for taking time out of your busy day for me!

Want the February Kit?

january pp

 

Hi Friends,

So you’ve noticed that I talk about Paper Pumpkin a lot, right? Well, these monthly arts and crafts kits that come right to your mailbox each month sure are worth talking about. See the photo at the top of the page? That was the kit for last month, an absolutely adorable Valentine’s set- it made 24 treat holders- notice those gold clips? Just precious! I used the stamp sets for three events in January and everyone just loved them! I’ve got more plans for these stamps this week as I finish my own Valentines.

january pp2

This photo represents the awesome work of the concept artist who came up with the stamp set in last month’s kit. So many alternative uses for the kit contents- the possibilities are endless. Love. It.

If you want the kit for this month, and I’ve heard it is very special indeed (friends who went to the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference last month shared that they got to see the next two months of kits and they are spectacular card kits!), then you need to hurry and sign up! Order by midnight Tuesday February 10th, 2015 and you’ll get this month’s kit!!

Here’s how you can sign up:

  • Either contact me, and I will get all your info and will order it for you! …. OR

 

  • Go to my website and order directly by clicking “shop” button, then enter the item code #137859 in the top left “search the store” box, click enter. When you see the three month subscription pop up, click “add to bag” then you can either go check out or continue shopping. (want more than three months? use the code in the chart below for the quantity you want to purchase).  It would be great if you would enter Hostess Code: PQ7ZS6YX, my name will show up as hostess, you will earn 1 free item from the Sale-a-bration catalog just for this 3 month subscription. Or earn 2 free Sale-a-bration selections with a 6 month pre-order, or earn 4 Free Sale-a-bration items for a one year prepaid subscription!!  You might want to pick out your free item(s) and have the order number(s) handy before you start shopping… (remember there is a link to the Sale-a-bration catalog up to the left of this blog page). Also, a helpful hint:  sometimes leaving the shopping cart open too long without finalizing the order can cause some mild “hiccups” lets call them, causing you to lose what’s in your shopping cart.

When I was doing a Google search to see if there were any other cute ideas out there- look what I found!! This awesome Valentine’s party scene is by a talented demonstrator named Tina Adams, wowza, I just love the branch in a jar- I’m going to be case-ing that for sure!

january pp4

These were some cards we made at our January Paper Pumpkin Party using the stamps from the kit last month! What do you think?

If you subscribed to Paper Pumpkin when it first came out, you may have been disappointed with the value of the kit. Stampin’ Up! listened to our feedback. The kits have a much better value now! More stamps in the sets and a greater quantity of supplies included. It’s seriously worth giving it another try.

If you sign up for the February 2015 kit, then you’ll get to come to my monthly Paper Pumpkin Party- it’s always the last Thursday of the month, just RSVP 5 days before so I’m sure to have enough prepped for our night of fun!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope you have a great day, and don’t forget to sign up by tomorrow!
