Paper Pumpkin, Stampin Up

Spoiler Alert- for this month’s Paper Pumpkin!

Hi there friends- Are You Crafty? Do you wish you had the supplies to make a quick project? How about a 30 minute creative escape?? Well, I just love my monthly Paper Pumpkin craft kit that comes directly to me each month, no work, just assemble and done! Tonight, I just got a peek at June’s Paper Pumpkin kit! Oooo, you’re gonna love it! Not cards! Not a scrapbook project! It is a totally awesome Fourth of July decorating kit, or fun projects for you or the kids at your holiday celebration, your Sunday School class, day care providers. Why? Because there are 24 of them in the kit! And EVERYTHING you need to make it.

Go RIGHT NOW to and order the june kit. Be sure to type in my name, Lynn Streifert, Glenville New York as your demonstrator. OR if you don’t want to deal with creating an account and ordering online- call me up to 10 pm tonight (my phone number is 518-399-4321) and we can do a 3, 6, or 12 month prepaid subscription (you’d be totally helping me earn free stamps too, so uber thanks for that!). Did I mention how cute PINWHEELS are for picnic and festive decorations?


On the video we watched tonight, they showed how you could easily turn the pinwheels into a festive patriotic banner (think dress up the office cubicle at work, or on your mantle with your 4th of July décor), also they used the included stamps to make cards and gifts because the kit this month also comes with 24 cello bags- wowza- maybe you need more of 24?? Well, if you want to go in and increase your quantity in your paper pumpkin account, to get more of these cuties, you only have until midnight tonight.

That’s not all, as a special thank you- all my friends/family who subscribe and receive Paper Pumpkin from  me are going to receive an awesome clear case with a paper pumpkin insert, so you can organize your stamps and ink spots (unless you want to keep them in your orange boxes, then you can use this case for something else!) I can’t wait to give you this reward! AND I have a lot of great ideas for a summer paper pumpkin party- I am going to work on scheduling it soon- I’m not going to wait until September as I have so many new subscribers, and I want to thank you all!



Be sure to let me know if you have any questions- and I hope I didn’t spoil the surprise for anyone- I can’t wait for mine to arrive, it is so stinkin’ cute!!

thanks for visiting!



Paper Pumpkin, Stampin Up, Stampin' Up Specials

March Paper Pumpkin Kit

Hi Friends! Happy Friday! Sometimes I don’t blog because I haven’t made anything new to share. This week I needed a card to congratulate a friend who got a new job, so I whipped up a cute one from my Paper Pumpkin kit:



This card is 100% CASED from Shelli Gardner, our wonderful CEO of Stampin’ Up! In fact, here is what she said on her blog:

I know that our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits arrive with pretty much everything you need to create a project—they even come with the project idea. The whole idea, of course, is that you can quickly and easily create a fun project, without the stress of creating the project and gathering the supplies. But what if you like coming up with new ideas yourself?

Personally, I’m a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) girl—I love creating projects that other people design, but sometimes I’ll change up a color palette or add a layer or switch out an accessory. And even though Paper Pumpkin is truly creativity made simply and easy, there’s still room for a little added pizzazz. I thought I’d make my point by sharing these four cards, all made with the March Paper Pumpkin kit—and nothing else! All we did is add a few foil accents made with the foil that comes inside the kit! Can’t get much easier than that. . .

•Kit prices do not include shipping; standard shipping rates apply.

•To order these kits, Paper Pumpkin subscribers must call Demonstrator Support during normal business hours (M-F, 7 AM [MT] – 7 PM [MT]) at 1-800-STAMP UP (1-800-782-6787).

Stampin’ Up decided to extend the free marker give away until the end of Sale-a-bration (March 31st) since this promotion is going so well. If you sign up today, then you’ll be eligible to get these refills and past kits that are being offered while supplies last.


It’s so easy to sign up:

And here are some questions/answers that might help you understand:

Q: Why are you selling past Paper Pumpkin Kits and refill kits now?
A: We have received multiple requests throughout the past year to offer past kits and refills for a variety of reasons; happily, we’re finally at a point where we can make it happen!

Q: Why have you limited this offer to only active subscribers?
A: We listened to our current Paper Pumpkin subscribers who have requested time and time again the option of purchasing past kits and refill kits-this is a special perk just for Paper Pumpkin subscribers!

Q: How did you select which past kits and refill kits to sell?
A: There were a few things taken into consideration when determining which kits and refill kits would be offered, including inventory availability and variety.

Q: Why do subscribers have to contact Demonstrator Support to order past kits and refill kits?
A: Since this offering is only available to Paper Pumpkin subscribers and we do not currently link our Paper Pumpkin ordering to OEX or Online Ordering, Demonstrator Support has to help facilitate this process.

Q: Will demonstrators still receive their 20 percent discount?
A: Yes. Sales for these items will be treated like any other product we sell.

Q: How will we know when a specific kit has sold out?
A: If a kit or refill kit sells out, we will update this web page to reflect that.

Are there any refills or past kits YOU want to get? If you’re a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber, then just call SU and order yours today.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and have a wonderful day.

Paper Pumpkin

My Paper Pumpkin… what is it? why should you try it?

paper pumpkin

Hi There Stamping Friends!
Have you been wondering what all the hub is about My Paper Pumpkin? You heard me mention it once before, but I haven’t been spending much time talking about it, until tonight-let me fill you in. If you can think of someone who would like this monthly subscription kit, please read on as I have some very exciting rewards for you if you refer a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber to me!

I came home from work tonight and listened to a webinar that Stampin’ Up! put on three different times today for demonstrators. I just love how SU offers things multiple times, so for those of us who work full time, we can always catch it at night when we’re home…. anyway, I listened to the webinar and loved some of the analogies they used when explaining what Paper Pumpkin is all about.


First, it is a magical surprise that arrives in your mailbox every month. If you’d like the convenience of not having to order a lot of Stampim’ Up! products as you’re getting started with stamping, then this is for you. Just think about cardstock, stamps, ink, paper trimmer, punches, dies, ribbon, buttons, embellishments. It all adds up, right? Do you get overwhelmed and wonder what you should order? Do you like to make a handmade card now and then? would you like to make things quickly? My Paper Pumpkin is designed for you busy people, think about how awesome it would feel to make your cards in 30 minutes or less. It’s also a space saving way to get started, the neat little boxes can stack up easily to store your remaining products (stamps, ink, block) or consolidate and keep everything in one box. (Just like those prepackaged fruit and veggie snacks in the grocery store for busy people- this is just like that!)


So what do you get in your monthly kit? When you first sign up, you will receive this “Welcome Kit”. It contains a clear “D” size block, an ink spot, stamps, card stock, and the embellishments you need to complete the projects … the only thing you will need will be some adhesive- and here’s the good part- if you sign up for My Paper Pumpkin by May 25th (yes- that’s this Saturday) then I will give you a free adhesive (either snail adhesive roll or bottle of Tom Bow All Purpose Glue). This is a photo (above) of the welcome kit! How adorable, right??!?!

Here’s a photo of what was in the April kit. How stinking cute is this? I just love saying “Seriously”… how perfect to add this stamp to other cards.

And here’s a photo of the kit we received this month, May. It’s a “Brag Book”, how adorable is that?

Kits will never be repeated, will never have holidays (because everyone doesn’t celebrate the same holidays), and cost is only $19.95 per month- which includes shipping/handling, tax will be added at check out.

Are you ready to sign up, and get that free adhesive from me? GO to
Click “Join” and fill in your mailing information, and be sure to type in my name, Lynn Streifert, when it asks for your demonstrator’s name. I will receive an email notification when you sign up, and then I’ll know to contact you and ask you what kind of adhesive you’d like for free!

For everyone who signs up by June 10th and stays subscribed for at least 3 months, will receive a package of cardstock and envelopes (12 pieces each) for your continued stamping pleasure with your new kit contents!

Now, you might be wondering what reward awaits you for referring a new Paper Pumpkin Subscriber to me- I’m going to give you a free adhesive too if they sign up by Saturday May 25th too! That’s right, when you help a friend or family member sign up on and select me as their demonstrator, and you email me and tell me their name and date they signed up, I will give you a free adhesive too (snail refill, Tombow Glue, Glue Stick or Dimensionals) as my special thank you!

If you have any questions, email me at and I’ll get right back to you!
I know how busy you are, so thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I appreciate that you came to visit me and read my blog.

Don’t forget to sign up by Saturday May 25th for your free adhesive!

Happy Stamping and Crafting!
Lynn Streifert

Don’t forget there’s only 1 week left to order from the current catalog and Spring Catalog- wow, how did it get to be almost the end of May??? Go to my online store at to see what’s still left on the Retirement Lists!!

Good morning stampers,
I just wanted to quickly remind you that today is the last day to sign up for the April shipment of My Paper Pumpkin, Stampin’ Ups new mail order subscription program. Every month you need to sign up by the 10th of the month (or if you’re already a subscriber, you can edit your quantities, shipment address, etc), in order to receive your package around the 15th of that month!
The first kit includes a clear “D” size block, along with the stamps, ink, card stock, embellishments, and envelopes to make you cards. This is the perfect solution for those crafters who want to slowly build up their supplies, or those who live in small spaces, or those who are looking for something new, or hey, those that just love stamping and want to support me!

Go to and be sure you select me, Lynn Streifert as your demonstrator! I have a rewards program and will be sending you a free gift after 3 months of subscribing… And remember you can go on “hold” for a month if you want to skip that months shipment.
I hope you’ll become part of my Pumpkin Patch!
