Christmas in July


It is time to kick off six months of Christmas Card Club.  This is always a popular club because for the next 6 months we will be making four different Christmas Cards each month.  So in December you will have 24 Christmas Cards already made.

I do this club in my home at 908 Webster Rd., Jefferson, Ohio.  All clubs are full. But find 5 more stamping friends and I will open a club for you during these times, so you can get the Hostess Benefits.

You can still come and make these cards. All you need to RSVP a week before and bring your own adhesive.  Classes are held on Tuesday Open House Style from 1 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday or Saturdays from 10 a.m. until noon.  Cost is $8 or Free with a $25 Order.

Nov. 26 or 29                  Dec.13 or 17

If you live in the Warren Ohio area, I also offer this same club down there on Wednesday Nights once a month from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m.  This club is also ful, but we can open another club if there is enough interest.   Same thing you can come if you RSVP a week early, bring your own adhesive, pay $8 or place a $25 order.

Quick Tips For Three-Step Stamping

#bearhugs #christmasbears #lindabauwin

Are these bears the most adorable thing?  You just want to hug them.  Well they are from the Bear Hugs Stamp Set that was just released in the New Stampin' Up! Catalog, and they are a three-step stamping set.  

In today's video, I am going to teach you some fun easy tips to do when you are using a three-step stamping set.  Here is another great sample using this Bear Hugs Stamp Set.  This card was created by Leigh Amburgey of Mentor.

#bearhugs #lindabauwin

As I stated in the video, I am very excited to share a new program starting in July.  I hear over and over how you want to attend my classes or get the tutorials I offer online, but you live too far away or in another country and can't buy from me.

STAY TUNE, as I will be announcing a new program I am starting in July with my Christmas Card Club.  How would you like to receive PDF's for 24 different Christmas Cards?  That's right each month you will have the chance to receive free a PDF of four Christmas Cards with a purchase in my Online Store.   Or better yet the PDF and the card kit, so you are ready to sit down and stamp.  You would get all the card stock and die cutting done for you to make the four cards for that month.  You would just need stamps and adhesive.

That means by December you would have 24 different Christmas Cards done.  How cool would that be?  Don't live in the US and can't purchase in my Online Store to get these PDF's or card kits?  Well you asked for it!  Starting in July, you will be able to purchase the PDF's for my Exclusive Christmas Card Club Cards.


Gift of Love Stamp Set

#giftoflovestamp #hostessset #lindabauwin

I want to share another Mystery Hostess Card today with you.  It uses the beautiful Gift of Love Stamp Set.  It is my favorite type of stamp set, two-step stamping.  I used the new Peekaboo Peach Card Stock and Ink with the Pear Pizzazz Card Stock and Ink.

The Gift of Love Stamp Set is a set of nine photopolymer stamps for only $10.  What a deal.  But the only ones that can purchase this set are hostesses.  Don't want to have a home workshop?  No problem.  You can do a book show or purchase yourself just $150 and you would have enough hostess rewards to get free.

As you can see, I used the new Seaside Embossing Folder.  This folder goes so well with the new Swirly Bird Bundle.  The Lots of Labels Framelits makes for perfect layering with this card.   With a little Wink of Stella these flowers  just pops off the card.

The sizes of Card Stock I used for this card are:

  • 4 1/4" x 11" Heavy Whisper White Card Stock (I like to use this ehavier card stock when I am using multiple layers on the front of the card
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Pear Pizzaz Card Stock
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Peekaboo Peach Card Stock to cut out the label.
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White Card Stock to cut out the label


Touches of Texture

#timelesstextures #sustamps #lindabauwin

Thought I would share one of the cards that we did at my Mystery Hostess Event last weekend.  It is done with the Touches of Texture Stamp Set and the Thoughtful Banners Bundle.

The flower in the Touches of Texture Stamp Set is a two- step flower, but it has a lot of open area.  So we used the Wink of Stella to color it in.  Did you know that the Wink of Stella Clear can be used like a blending pen?

Touches of Texture also has some fun filler stamps to give you a great looking texture.  We used the Delightful Dijon Ink with these great texture stamps.

The Thoughtful Banners Bundle has some great banners and words, and it matches the Duet Banner Punch.  This set I am using a lot as an accent to many cards.

The sizes of Card Stock I used for this card are:

Hostess Code this month is UZRHANS7.  When you use this code you will receive a special surprise from me.

Double Flap Creative Fold Card

#creativefoldcard #cardswithcreativefolds #lindabauwin

Today's creative fold video features a Double Flap card that was shared with me by Heather Johnson of Kingsville, Ohio, during a product challenge I did with my TEAM.  It uses the must have Botanical Builder Famelits.

Check out the beautiful Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It has to sheets that have designs with copper foil.  And it has the beautiful In Colors in the paper too.

I started with a piece of 5 1/2" x 12" Whisper White Card Stock that was scored at the 4 1/4" and the 8 1/2".  This gives you an A2 size card.  The other sizes of Card Stock and Design Paper are"



Showing off the Pretties Creative Inking Blog Hop

Blog hop

It's time for another Creative Inking Blog Hop.  Hope you are joining me from Dena Rekow and you loved what she shared for her favorite pretty from the New Stampin' Up! Catalog.

I will have to say with this catalog it's hard for me to pick the prettiest item from the catalog, as there is just so many.  You know I love blue, so the Floral Boutique Suite just jumped right off the page at me the first time I looked at the catalog.

#bundle #floralboutiquesuite #lindabauwin

So I will have to say that is my prettiest item from the catalog.  That is why I picked it as my first Stamp of the Month Kit.  My Stamp of the Month Kits are not available for one month only, but while supplies last.  So you can still order this beautiful Stamp of the Month Kit which includes the Bundle that has the Floral Phrases Stamp Set and the Detailed Floral Thinlit Dies.

#stampkits, #stampofthemonth, #floralphraes #lindabauwin

But wait look what happens when you change the colors to the beautiful new pretty In Color Peekaboo Peach and the 3/8 Rouched Ribbon.  The pretty just continues.  What is your favorite pretty from the new catalog?

Now it's time to head to Sue Lehrer's Blog and she what her favorite Pretty is.

So Much More Than Just Stamps


There are no words for what happened yesterday.  You see there is magic that happens every time I have a large stamping event.  First I am truly blessed with the business that has come from stamping, but it is more than the business, the stamps or the ink.  It is hands down the relationship.

The ladies that came for my garage sale and then those that came to the Mystery Hostess Event afterwards blessed me so much with their friendship and presence.  Their hugs, smiles and encouragement were true medicine to my soul.  And I say thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Pulling an event like this together takes a lot of work, but when I hear the laughs and see those smiles on your faces, it's all worth it.


This year's garage sale was very difficult for me to do without Jay.  He was so much help in years past.  But I felt his presence and the support I received from these four amazing women; Jodie Daniels, Tracy Spangler, and Rosa Youschak was priceless.  I couldn't of done it without your fours.  So thank you.

The Day Is Finally Here

Jodie and I worked last night with the help of some dear friends to set up for today.    If you are looking for paper craft supplies at amazing discounts the Jefferson Community Center at 11 East Jefferson Street is where you need to be today.  There are many tables full of some grat deals.

Not only will you find tons of retired Stampin' Up! Product from me, but also from three other demonstrators and countless customers of mine.  This is a sale like no other.  Because others are bringing their items, I have no clue what will be there.  Come and plan on spending some time as you won't be able to see in a short time.

You need to stay for the afternoon, because starting at 1:00 p.m. you can make 4 make-n-takes and be part of a Mystery Hostess Event.  So bring your adhesive and plan to stamp the afternoon away with us.
