Free Designer Series Paper From Me

First Million Dollar Linda Bauwin

Last week I was truly blessed with all the Online Orders and Stamp of the Month Kits Sold helping me inch closer and closer to that Million Sales Goal.  There are no words to say thanks to all that placed their orders with me last week.

This week's exclusive Million Dollar Sales Promotion from me is an an assortment of 12 sheets of 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper with any Online Purchase of $50 or more.  And don't forget you will be earning Sale-a-Bration Items and Linda Loyalty Points.  You MUST use Hostess Code DY7YWFM9.  Reminder if you have a $150 order or more do not use the hostess code, I will send you the Designer Series Paper. 

I know many of you are working towards my huge special for a $250 book workshops. Check out here as you will be earning an additional $50 in Product, plus regular hostess benefits.  As you can see, my goal is a win win for you, when you help me out.

Now time to share some more great projects done my members of my Stamp Family during our TEAM Challenge of Product.  They used Designer Series Paper in some fun ways.

A Nice Cuppa Linda Bauwin

This card was done by Jeanne Travaglianti from Brecksville, Ohio.  Look how she used the Cup & Kettle Framelits Dies and her Designer Series Paper.  Love this look.

Grateful Bunch Bundle Linda Bauwin

Lisa Brown from Northfield, Ohio look how the Designers Series adds so much to this card.

Botanicals For Your Stamp Set Linda Bauwin

Last month I offered a product challenge to the members of my Stamp Family.  Those wishing to take part were challenged to create a card using product that I sent them.  They were to create a card and return it to me.  They didn't know what product I would send them.  They got several sheets of paper from the It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack, some Baker's Twine from the combo pack, and It's My Party Enamel Dots, all product form the Occasions Catalog.

My club members judge the winners each time I do this challenge.  Let me tell you the competition has become pretty tough.  I am so grateful they judge and not me.

The card above was created by Mary Rodgers from Rochester, New York.   She used the Sale-a-Bration Set Botanicals For You which is very stunning.  Check out how she used the My Party Enamel Dots inside the flowers and she untwisted the Baker's Twine and just used the black threads.  Very Clever.

It's My Party Designer Series Paper Linda Bauwin

Michele Casto from Twinsburg showed off all the product she received in her pack.  Love the different stripes made out of the It's My Party Designer Series Paper.  My video's lately have been showcasing different ways to show off our designer series paper, and this is another great way.

Don't forget today is the last day to earn this week's Exclusive Special from me, in my countdown to become the First Million Dollar Linda with Stampin' Up!   So grateful to all that have placed orders to help me out so far.

You will want to check back on Monday for my Special for Next Week.  Like I shared earlier, every week will have a different special for your orders placed online, when using that week's Hostess Code.  But I continue to hear I don't place orders Online.  No problem!!!  The same offer is good if you call me with your order.  So don't miss out on this month of specials.

Sunburst Design Paper Technique

Designer Paper Starburst Linda Bauwin

Today's video is another one in my series for those designer series paper hoarders.   You know who you are.  The ones that buy the beautiful Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper, but then don't want to use it because it has two sides and you don't know which side to use.

When I did my first video to show you how to show off both sides, it warmed my heart to know there are others out there that feel the same way I do about our Designer Series Paper.

Well by using Stampin' Up!'s Sunburst Thinlits Die you can show off both sides of the paper.   So no more hoarding.  

 As many of you know, I am inching my way to be the first Million Dollar Linda with Stampin' Up!   This meanings selling my first million dollars in personal sales.  This humbles me so much, as it is because of my wonderful customers, like you, that I have done this over the last 19.  

I still have a ways to go.    I am asking for your help.  Any size order is greatly appreciate and I am offering specials.  You can check them out here.  I can not thank you enough for any encouragement you can give me.  Doesn't matter if it's an order or just encouraging words.  They are all very important to me.

Saying Good-bye Stampin' Up!'s In Colors

Check out my Stamp of the Month Kits Linda Bauwin - CARD-iologist Helping you create cards from theheart:

Do you love these colors?  Well I love the Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Lost Lagoon.   Do you know they soon will be history?  

Each year when the annual catalog comes out (June 1) these 5 In Colors will be retiring.  That means ink pads, card stock packs, ink refills, and all the In Color Accessories will only be available while supplies last.  This means that when they hit the retired list the first of May they are usually gone that same day.

Why am I telling you this NOW?  So you can add those ink refills, card stock etc. while you can earn free product during Sale-a-Bration and my quest to Hit My Million Dollars in Personal Sales.  Which means even more Free Items.

Countdown to be the First Million Dollar Linda with Stampin' Up! continues.  I appreciate all the well wishes and those taking advantage of my specials, as I inch closer to my sales goal.  Don't know how you can earn $100 in FREE Stampin' Up! Product of your Choice?  You need to check out.

Bunny Treat Bag

Bunny Treat Bag Linda Bauwin

On Saturday I showcased this adorable Bunny Treat Bag on the Creative Inking Blog Hop.   The cute little bunny was showcased on my Easter Parade of Punches Video I did on Friday.  Today during my Creative Fold Video I am going to show you how easy it is to make this Bunny Treat Bag.

I started with a piece of Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper that measured 4" x 5 7/8".  Along the 5 7/8" side of the paper I scored at 2", 2 3/8", 2 3/4", 4 5/8" 5" and 5 3/8".  Along the 4" I scored at the 1/2".  I then cut out the score lines along the 1/2" score line to form the bottom.

In the video, I show you how to line up your Ornate Tag Topper Punch to punch and cut out the top of the treat bag.  That is all there is to this little bag.  So adorable.  I used Silver 1/8" Ribbon to tie the bag together.  I need to get some thin pink ribbon, like the 1/4" Cotton Ribbon, as I think it would look much better for my next bag.

So thrilled with all the supportive responses so far on my Countdown to be the First Million Dollar Linda with Stampin' Up!  I appreciate all the well wishes and those taking advantage of my specials, as I inch closer to my sales goal.  Don't know how you can earn $100 in FREE Stampin' Up! Product of your Choice?  You need to check out.

Countdown to the First Million Dollar Linda

First Million Dollar Linda Bauwin
I have some exciting news to share with you!!!  When I started my stamping journey almost 19 years ago I could have never dreamed of selling ONE MILLION DOLLARS in personal sales with Stampin’ Up!

Jay and I had the hardware store at that time and I truly had no business signing up, but being the amazing husband as he was, Jay said, “sure, give it a try”.  Thanks to YOU my amazing customers, I have been inching closer and closer to reaching that MILLION DOLLARS in personal sales.

The thought of earning this goal without Jay by my side, as he was always my biggest cheerleader, has been bitter sweet.  We dreamed about our trip out to Salt Lake City to celebrate me being the “FIRST MILLION DOLLAR LINDA”, with Stampin’ Up!.  Well I put that all out of my mind of going out to do that, because I knew it would be too hard.

Well the Lord is good!  I realized I am going out to Salt Lake City to meet up with my peers, other demonstrators, for an unveiling of the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog the first of April.  If I reach my MILLION DOLLARS in sales by then, I would then get to celebrate with all of them and would make this event easier.

So here is where you come in, you have been so supportive of me I hate to ask, but I need to step up my game the next 5 weeks, in order to make my goal in time to be able to celebrate with my friends.   I will be offering many specials to try and achieve this goal.   So if you can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

I am looking forward in God’s timing to be the “FIRST MILLION DOLLAR LINDA” with Stampin’ Up!   I am extremely grateful for all of you, who have made this possible. 

So my biggest special will be for my face-to-face and internet customers.  Do a $250 book workshop for me by March 25th.   I will give you an additional $50 in FREE Hostess Rewards of your choice.  That means for you to find 5 stampers who want a FREE Sale-a-Bration Item, and you will have a total of $100 in Hostess Rewards.

Second purchase any amount in my Online Stamp and receive a FREE GIFT when you the Hostess Code for that week.  This week will be my 4 Club Cards.  This week’s Hostess Code is GWQVDZYZ

Kid's Birthday Occasions Club Cards Linda Bauwin

You will want to stay tune, as the specials will be different each week.  But the biggest special will be the additional $50 in Hostess Rewards for any $250 order.  You can earn this more than once.

Creative Inking Easter Bunny Hop

Blog hop

Today is the Creative Inking Blog Hop.  The theme is Easter Bunny Hop.  Since I don't have a lot of bunny or Easter Stamps, I decided to focus on Punch Art.  Yesterday on my blog, I did a video showing you how to create the adorable punch out bunnies and chick that I use on my projects today. So if you missed the video, you may want to go check it out.

Easter Bunny Card

Isn't this the cutest bunny done with the Bow and Owl Builder, Sweetheart, and Oval punches.  This little bunny face could be used on a baby card also.  The Birthday Bouquet Designer Paper and the Pool Party Glitter Ribbon makes for a fun spring card.

Bunny Treat Bag Linda Bauwin

The second little bunny uses the Tree Builder, Petite Petal, 3/4" and 1" Circle Punches.  I used this bunny on a little treat bag I made with the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper.   This bag will be featured in my Creative Fold Video Series next Tuesday.  So if you want to learn how to do this bag, you will want to check out that video on Tuesday by subscribing to my YouTube Channel or my blog.

Easter Chick Card Linda Bauwin

Check out this cute chick done with the 1 3/8" Circle, 7/8 Scallop, and Bird Builder Punch.   Hope you have enjoyed all the punch art now it's time to hop to forward to Sue Lehrer post or hop back to Dena Rekow.
