Lindsay's Legacy Hop


Today, we are hopping in memory of our dear friend and fellow cardmaker, Lindsey Martin-Penny, who sadly passed away last year from a rare and aggressive form of ovarian cancer. 

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and Lindsey’s husband Burke thought it would be a great time to sell off her many craft supplies, with all of the proceeds going towards Lindsey’s Legacy Fund for Clear Cell Ovarian Cancer Research in cooperation with The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

The purpose of this hop will be to honour Lindsey, celebrate her life and all that she loved, as well as help spread the word to raise funds for clear cell ovarian cancer research.  You can help in one of several ways!

  1. Purchase a Flat Rate Mailer stuffed with loads of fabulous craft supplies.  These can only be mailed within Canada and there will be no tax receipts provided with the purchase of these boxes.  A box of craft supplies would make a great gift for yourself, a crafty friend or a child/classroom!  For details about the boxes and how you can go about purchasing one, please email with the message "Craft Box" or visit Lindsey’s original blog, Bashful Blogging.  Every craft box purchase in September will be entered into a draw and one lucky winner will win a $100 gift certificate to Scrap ‘n Stamp

  2. During the month of September, shop at Scrap ‘n Stamp using the code LINDSEY10 at checkout.  You will get 10% off your purchase (sale items excluded) and Scrap ‘n’ Stamp will donate 10% of their proceeds to Lindsey’s Legacy Fund.

  3. Any donations over $15 made directly to Lindsey’s Legacy Fund will receive a digital tax receipt.

  4. Repost this hop on your social media and encourage others to share!

Lindsey’s Legacy Hop begins at Emily Leiphart’s blog.  If you get lost along the way, please return to Emily’s blog where she will have the entire hop list.

How to hop:

💙 Like and leave a comment at each stop

💙 Learn a little bit about Lindsey’s connection to that person

💙 Share this post and help us save lives

The next stop on the hop is Ardyth Percy-Robb.  Please be sure to leave a comment at each of the stops where you can learn more about Lindsey’s life, loves and her legacy.

Thanks so much for hopping with us!

I met Lindsey while being on the design team for 25 Days of Christmas Tags (thank you so much Tracey) and we connected instantly because of our love of Disney and Minnie & Mickey Mouse. I loved sending her cards and bags using all things Disney. We had also planned to meet in person on a trip that was planned for September 2020 to Canada but then COVID hit and that never happened. We were both disappointed but still kept in touch via online chat. Lindsey had a kind heart , a fabulous sense of humor, and was so incredibly talented, it was an honor to know her!

I made a card in her honor using these 2 sweet mice and will send it to her family at Christmas. I used these sweet dies from Social Paper Plan and the background paper is from Papertrey Ink.

Thank you so much for taking the time to hop with us!

I pulled out this fabulous stamp from Penny Black Stamps called London and the strip die is from SugarPea Designs. Such a fun card to make and I can’t wait to pop it in the mail to a special friend. Thank you Joyce for letting me use your supplies!
