Stamping with Seniors… simple Stampin’ Up!

atrium cards

Hi there stamping friends! I hope you had a great weekend!

What do you think of these simple cards? I am doing an event at a local senior citizen residence next weekend, to see if seniors like to stamp! My BFF’s grandmother recently moved in there, and I saw their activities line up and thought, “hum, I bet they’d like Arts-and-Crafts”! So, I’m going to give it a whirl.

I’m planning to bring all kinds of rubber stamps, ink pads and our note cards/envelopes. I’m going to let them each make 2 cards this first time. I’ll find out what they like, and see if they would like to step it up next time… I just need to be careful of the level of fine motor involvment, or be sure to have helpers with me.

Don’t forget free shipping ends tomorrow night! If you were thinking of getting something (I know you want those dress framelits, right??)- just think you are saving 10% if you order by midnight tomorrow. If you order by 6 pm and use Hostess code Z4AVCU7C in my online store, you will be entered to win a free Spring Array Bundle (punch and clear mount stamp set- a $28 value!)

Well, my dear sweet sister informed me I write too much… so I’m going to try to shorten these blog posts a bit. Let me know if you like reading my (lengthy) posts or not 🙂

Until tomorrow, happy stamping!

WOW, I have never ever dreamed Stampin’ Up would bring us a 3 Day Shipping free weekend!! The sale starts at 12:01 am (Mountain Time) on April 6, 2013 and ends at 11:59 pm (Mountain Time) on April 8th, 2013. Now, on top of the major announcement Stampin’ Up made yesterday about the color “refreshing”, I’ll say this is perfect timing to stock up on all those colors that are leaving us: Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard,  River Rock. (did you hear me sniffing?? I’m going to be so sad to say good-bye to Baja Breeze- I use that color year round! ) So… get your ink pads, reinkers, card stock, ribbon, DSP, anything with your favorite colors. Go here to my online store: http://LynnStreifert.Stampinup.net

When Stampin’ Up takes something away, they give us something GREAT, and I’m THRILLED about Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Pool Party, Blushing Bride, and Island Indigo (all In-Colors returing). Crushed Curry is coming back to (that one doesn’t thrill me as much as the others), and I can’t wait to see the brand new Smoky Slate, a light grey shade. Grey is so “On Trend” right now!

Look how pretty these new/returing colors look together- the Terrific Trendy Ten… that’s what I’m calling them!

I couldn’t let a day go by without showing you some things I’ve been working on. Tonight I was so blessed to have my dear friend Jamie (and she’s also my first recruit), came over to help me do some preparing for an upcoming event, on Saturday April 20th I’ll be selling some hand-made items. I have decided to use my profits for my ongoing efforts to support the American Cancer Society. As a cancer survivor, it is very important to me to give back to this wonderful organization. They were very helpful to my family and I last year, as I navigated through a very scary time. I did my first fundraiser for them last December and wanted to continue to raise money for them. This is my next attempt. I’ll keep you posted on all my efforts.

Here are some of the 12×12 fabric covered photo/bulletin boards I made tonight, which one is your favorite?

Well, I made 7 of these tonight, plus some cards, and Jamie helped me make some cards- but I’d better save something to show you this weekend. {smile}

Don’t forget to check back here in the morning for the hostess code, if you want to be entered to win the free bundle I’m raffling off to online customers.

Until tomorrow, happy stamping!
