Best of Halloween- This month’s Stampin’ Up! Best of Set!

This absolutely adorable project comes from Stampin Up concept artist Christina N. Don’t you just LOVE it?? The haunted house image in the Best of Halloween is one of my all time favorite images!

“Every year at Halloween I love to give all of my nieces and nephews a treat, and it’s always wrapped up especially for them. Since the August “Best of” stamp set is “Best of Halloween,” it’s the perfect opportunity for me to get started early this year. I love that there are three main images, a border, and a greeting in the stamp set. Since the main images are about the same size, it was easy to come up with a design that worked for all of them. I used the new Decorative Window Gift Boxes since they are small and all of my nieces and nephews are still very little. I didn’t think they needed much more candy than these hold!”

If you want to gobble this adorable set up, head over to my online store at: http://LynnStreifert.stampinup.net

the order number for this Best of Halloween stamp set is #134381 and it is $14.95  (don’t forget to save all your little “25” stickers from all the “Best of” stamp sets- when you collect 6 stickers, you are eligible to pick a free stamp set ($14.95 or less) and Stampin’ Up! will ship it to you for free! If you’re like me, and you’re getting the “Best of” stamp set every month, then in December you’ll have 12 of the stickers collected and can pick out 2 free stamp sets ($14.95 or less each).

This stamp set is what I used to make my Halloween Framed Art piece that I blogged about the other day. You could easily make more framed art, little gift boxes, and don’t forget Halloween Cards too!!

Happy Stamping!

What a Weekend!

Hi there friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I know I sure did! I had 3 stamping events: Friday night Stamp Camp, Saturday morning club, and a private party at Patty’s house (yummy snacks, wine, and stamping fun)!

I got my 3 mile walk in today, it felt GLORIOUS! I do not lie, the weather was perfect walking weather! I had a friend over this afternoon to explain about Ambit Energy, and I was thrilled that she signed up as a consultant today!! Kudos Sue on making the decision to work on financial freedom! I do not regret my decision I made when I joined Ambit 3 years ago! I regret not telling more people about the wonderful a savings I enjoy each month! And my entire family and 14 other friends trusted me and selected Ambit Energy as their electricity supplier. If you’d like to learn more, check out my two websites:
To learn about saving money on your energy bill, and to see if we are in your state go to: http:\\Streifert.joinambit.comLynn’s Ambit website for customers
Or to find out how to earn money as an Ambit consultant, go to: http:\\streifert.whyambitworks.comLynn’s Ambit website for consultants
You’ll be glad you did, there are no costs associated with signing up as a customer, and in New York State, we do have a guaranteed savings plan. Thanks!

Now back to some stamping related news!
Here are the three projects we made at Patty’s party last night. All the ladies said they liked the water coloring technique and card the best.
