Friday’s Giveaway: Stamp Collection from Stampin’ Up! {closed}

Today we are giving away…

A Stamp Collection

from Linda Plett,

Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Where are your pictures from the holiday season last year?  Somewhere on your computer?  Stuffed in a box?  Stuck in your camera?

Today’s giveaway, a stamp collection from our local Stampin’ Up consultant Linda Plett, will help you preserve your memories with style.  I love the scrapbook page ideas on Linda’s website, but some of her other project ideas really caught my eye!

One goal I made for 2011 was to be better about keeping a journal.  I love this idea to buy a simple, inexpensive notebook and decorate it with stamps, paper, and embellishments.

Just a few pieces of paper, stamps, and ink will create this adorable “pillow box” to hold a special little gift.

I never would have come up with the idea to use stamps to create wall art.  Good thing Linda did!  This wall collage is especially fun because you can replace any of the small squares with photographs.  Linda held a special workshop to teach students how to make this project.

Linda offers a variety of classes and events.  Every month, she has “Scrap Night”; guests are invited to have “access to ALL of my inks, stamps and tools.  Space to work, of course.  My expert help!  Light yummy snacks.  Ideas galore on my walls, in my boxes and in my head”.  Check out Linda’s upcoming events.

Cute idea for a “No Candy” Valentine.

Stampin’ Up’s annual “Sale-a-bration” is going on now through March 31.  Spend $50 or host a qualifying workshop to earn a special reward.  Now is a great time to join Linda’s team as a Stampin’ Up consultant; get a free bonus bundle including up to $50 in products plus 15% off the starter kit.

Special Discount for CSG Readers:  Linda is offering a $5 discount on her classes.  Sign up for two classes at full price and receive the third class for half off.

Linda Plett, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, is giving away a rubber stamp collection.  Winner will be invited to Linda’s studio in Briargate to choose a collection from her available inventory.
