Our Friday Friend Lynn

The SASI Blog has been bustling lately with lots of darling projects from the Baker's Dozen. We plan to have at least 3 posts a week and sometimes more to share with you. Be sure to subscribe (see the sidebar) so you don't miss a thing! It's time for Our Friday Friend and I couldn't be happier to introduce you to Lynn Mercurio. I bet most of you are familiar with Lynn since she is on the Cupcake Crew (Taylor's Friday Sketch Samplers) plus she's the Monday challenge hostess over on SCS with the Technique Lover's Challenge. Lynn has such a fun style and we just couldn't resist the cupcake tree she created for last week's TECC.

This week Lynn created another card using Branching Out and Branching Our Coordinates - this time featuring a cherry tree and a swinging owl! Too cute! :) We had a little get-to-know-you chat with Lynn and here's what we found out....

--What city/state do you live in?

I live in Maryland Heights, Missouri which is in St. Louis County

--How did you become addicted to paper crafts? How long have you been stamping?

A co-worker introduced me to creative stamping in 2004 and from that time I've been totally addicted. I haven't stopped learning, creating and BUYING!

--How would you describe your style? What are you favorite projects to create?

I would call my style "chameleon" because my style changes depending on the occasion and the stamp set I'm using. I go from elegant to whimsical. My very favorite project to create is one where I have a specific purpose and person in mind. Having focus really helps me in the creative process.

--Do you have a favorite SASI image?

Can I say that my favorite is the set that I've purchased last? :) I love all of Taylor's stamps so to pick just one out of the bunch would feel just wrong. lol

--What is your favorite sweet treat? (feel free to share the recipe if you have one!)

My favorite sweet treat is a combination of two snack foods; popcorn and peanut M & Ms. Mix them together and you have the best combination of sweet and salty. This is an especially excellent snack while at the movies, but I have been known to mix up a batch for home movie night!

You'll want to visit Lynn at her blog Stamperosity as well as take a peek at her SCS gallery. Lots to see!

Thanks Lynn for being Our Friday Friend!

And how about you - would you like to be Our Friday Friend?

No contest to enter for this. Each week we will scour the Taylored Expressions Company Gallery at SCS for recent uploads (within the past 10 days) in search of a SASI Stamper to be featured on this blog. To be considered all you have to do is:

**Create something (card, 3D item, scrapbook page, anything) using one or more images from any SASI or Whimsical Wishes stamp set. Your creation should showcase SASI or WW, but does not have to be exclusive to SASI.

**Upload your creation to SCS being sure to use the keyword SASI or tayloredexpressions (no space) so it will appear in the Taylored Expressions Company Gallery (which is driven by a keyword search) and complete the recipe section of the upload.

**In the description field of your upload please mention Stamp a Sweet Impression stamps are from

Super simple - pretty much just have fun stamping and upload what you make so we can see it! If you are chosen, we will send you an e-mail or PM asking if you'd like to be featured and requesting permission to post one or more of your creations here as Our Friday Friend. You will have the choice of creating something new or just allowing us to post a pic already in your gallery. We will include a link to your SCS Member Gallery and to your blog if you have one (note: a blog is not required to qualify for this feature.)
