Glitter & Glam Girls- Halloween!

 

Welcome!

Our fabulous group is sharing Halloween projects with you for our blog hop this month. We hope you find some inspiration here!

I wanted to make a cute little candy holder- and our new mini curvy keepsakes dies are the perfect product- it holds one Lindt Lindor chocolate truffle, or one Ferraro Rocher fine hazelnut chocolate.

You cut one piece of pumpkin pie cardstock in half (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″) so yes- you get two pumpkins out of one sheet of cardstock!

Notice that one of my pumpkins is just texturized with the Stylish Scroll texture folder (the whole thing fits in the folder at an angle).  For the other pumpkin, I decided to stamp the pumpkin face from the Harvest Hellos stamp set (I used our memento black ink pad).

Then it was easy peasy to cut the leaves in granny apple green cardstock and the little labels came with the mini curvy keepsakes die set. Genius.

Wouldn’t these make a great gift for co-workers? Some nursing home residents? Just a sweet little treat to let someone know you are thinking of them?

I hope you have fun making these, they really are super quick to put together.

 

Thank you so much for visiting me today, are you ready to go check out all the other wonderful demonstrators showing off their spectacular Halloween projects?

Glitter & Glam Girls Blog Hop- Happy Fall!

 

Happy August!

Are you getting ready for Back to School? Or are you starting to notice the leaves are falling?

Well, this month our awesome group is featuring ideas to get you jump started for fall and back to school projects! We hope you enjoy our creations!

 

I decided to overnight express my Holiday Catalog goodies– for a few reasons honestly, one was to have this harvest hello bundle for this blog hop, as well as to have products for my Way to Go Day, which was yesterday, and also to have holiday catalogs in the house, I met with a group of ladies this weekend and wanted them to have the catalog as they are thinking of purchasing the starter kit and joining my team. So that was a lot of good reasons I thought to spend the extra money, it is the first time I have done this, well worth it. (because we live on the East Coast if I had not expedited this order and done overnight shipping, I likely would not have my order until around August 12).

You are going to want to add this bundle to your collection- it is good for many Occasions!

I paired the new clings stamp set Harvest Hellos and the Apple builder punch with the new curly real red ribbon. My card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ crumb cake scored at 4 1/4 inches. Then I used my corrugated texture folder on a piece of soft suede that measured 4″ x 5 1/4″ (this texture folder is currently unavailable -I will let you know when it is converted to the new style. We have three folders right now that are going through reconfiguration: corrugated, layered leaves, and tufted)

The small tag that I mounted my apples on measures 2 3/4 x 3 3/4″ and I sliced off the two tap corners to make a tag. I punched a hole and tied the ribbon right through, how cute is that?

I have a tip for you, first punch out on a piece of scrap paper the Apple punch, see how the stem and leaf are above the Apple?

Then align the 3 stamps to the backside of what you punched…

Set your clear block over top and now you can ink and stamp in one step, and punch all three parts out to color and assemble, so easy right?

Well I would like to thank you for stopping by this morning, please click the link below and go check out my friends blogs… I can’t wait to see what fun fall back to school projects they have! Have a fabulous week.

Feel free to leave me a comment in the response box below, I would love to hear from you! I treasure every comment.

Blossoms

Picture this: a tiny seedling on the verge of breaking through the soil. Can you see it? Now water it with affection and good vibes. What do you have after a little bit of time and a whole lot of love? A blossom—bold and beautiful and blooming!

Now imagine that in a stamp set. With the Bloom & Grow Bundle, you can see the entire story of the blossom: from tiny seedlings to beautiful bouquets. Then sprinkle in some encouraging sentiments, and you’ve got a card for everyone you love!

If you’re just beginning on your stamping journey, you can use these gorgeous stamps to create a patterned look for a simple but beautiful project as was done in the You Are Simply Wonderful sample, or if you want to step it up a notch, try tinkering with the dies and a blender pen, as was done in the Thanks sample. For all of you avid stampers, roll up your sleeves and add this bundle and some ribbon to a treat bag to make the cute bag you can see in the samples. There are so many options! Get this awesome bundle and make some cards or projects to send to your friends and everyone around you. Just like the little seedling— you can bloom and grow with just a few beautiful stamps, and a whole lot of love.

Here are some more samples using the Bloom & Grow bundle.

And here are close ups of these products:

Wouldn’t you love to add this to your collection? You will love playing with this set for sure!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Greece Trip Highlights

Good morning friends, with the projections here in upstate New York to be a very hot day I wanted to send off this summary of my trip to you, hopefully you can enjoy the pictures while sipping on some cool beverages and staying cool.

We had smooth travels to Rome, Italy although none of us slept on the overnight trip so we were a little fatigued to hit the roads and start exploring. The Trivoli fountain was absolutely amazing, I was able to find lactose free sherbet while everyone else enjoyed their gelato and I did take a chance and take a pill to enjoy the delicious homemade pizza.

Don’t you love to enjoy foods when you travel? I could do a whole blog post just on the fabulous treats and entrées we enjoyed on this trip.

We were in awe of the beauty and majesty of the Jewel of the Seas, our ship for the next seven days cruising the Greek Isles on one of Royal Caribbean’s finest ships.

Stampin’ Up! spoiled all of the achievers beyond our wildest dreams with fabulous pillow gifts every evening. They also threw us a set sail party on the first night with all of this delicious food. It was so fun to kick off the trip and have snacks and visit with everyone, and I was thrilled to visit with Shelli Gardner, that was so special!

It sure was a bit windy up on top deck, but we had to take in the sights as we cruised away from Italy on Monday morning they had a session for us and kicked off the Holiday catalog and Jordan received this lovely backpack and I received some new holiday goodies we learned that the next incentive trip will be to the Eastern Caribbean in May 2021. The earning for this will begin in September, and I am so excited as this will be on the biggest cruise ship called Symphony of the Seas we tried to round up the demonstrators from the Northeast region for a photo, here are some of my friends and I after the general session. I enjoyed having a quick chat with Sara Douglas, the CEO of Stampin’ Up!, she is such a sweetheart Broadway show tunes, music in every nook and cranny of the ship it is so fantastic to cruise, this is the screenshot of the TV screen as we cruised from Italy to Greece.

We arrived on the ship on Sunday, July 7, and cruised all day on Monday, July 8. We enjoyed time by the pool, we played bingo, we enjoyed good food, and it was formal night in the dining room for our sitdown dinner. Our family was blessed with the most fantastic head waiter and assistant waiter on the ship, they catered to our every need we had and were so fun.

Our first stop was in Santorini, and oh my goodness the views were gorgeous the water was so blue, this is a caldera, which meant that the ship had to anchor a distance away and we took small boats, called tender, in to the port. It was so much fun and a little nerve-racking to take a bus up the winding Hills to get to the top of the town.

Our first stop was at Santos winery where we tasted different wines and enjoyed some Greek snacks of olives, crackers, cheeses.

Then our tour bus took us to Oia, where we had a chance to walk the streets, have some gelato, do some shopping, we were inside the most beautiful church I have ever seen. And then our final stop on this tour was to Fiera, for some more sightseeing, and shopping. It was so beautiful.

Our second excursion day, July 10, was my niece Jordan’s birthday and we went to the island of Mykonos. Again we had to take a small boat to get to shore to get on our restored pirate ship that took us to the gorgeous Aegean Sea, where we jumped off the boat into the water to swim. After a little while we hopped back on and sailed to Paradise Beach where we anchored for a while and swam in the Mediterranean Sea. I cannot describe how gorgeous the water was! At the end of the day our boat took us into the village and we had a chance to walk and shop and have some food. I enjoyed the best Gyro and baklava I have ever had in my life! I know Jordan enjoyed a magical birthday!

On July 11 our third day of excursions, we anchored in Athens and we took a guided tour to the Acropolis and Parthenon and learned so much about the ancient Greeks. It was so awesome to visit this incredible spot.

I think Claire was really in her element, she soaks up all this rich history and even elected to go to a museum with Sue instead of shopping like the rest of us.

Our fourth excursion was to the island of Katakolon. We took a tour bus about an hour inland to Olympia, which was an incredible experience. This was the least crowded of all of our excursions, and our tour guide gave us quite a narrated tour of the birthplace of the Olympic Games. we got to walk the grounds of The Temple of Zeus and Hera and learned about ancient cultures, as well as kalamata olives and the olive branch.

You may have been following me on Facebook or Instagram while I was away, so some of these pictures may be familiar. But I know not everyone is on social media so I wanted to share this trip of a lifetime and thank all of you who helped me achieve this incredible vacation. My family and I had the time of our lives and we will treasure this experience.

My next blog post will be photos of all the pillow gifts, prizes, swaps, and sample boards featuring products from the next holiday catalog. Demonstrators will have a chance to receive the catalog in August and order a month early before it launches to the public on September 4. We have a wonderful special going on right now I would love to have you join my team, contact me if you need more info.

Have a great day and thanks for reading! Have you been to Rome or Greece? I would love to hear from you, I treasure your comments.

Thanks,

Lynn

Glitter & Glam Girls July Blog Hop- Anything Goes!

 

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to our July Edition of the Glitter & Glam Girls Blog Hop! This month our theme is “Anything Goes” well, that is actually harder than it sounds- I like structure… and I spent a long time debating- do I make a card or 3D item, show off new products or my favorite?? Decisions, Decisions! Well, I hope you like what I came up with for you, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think (just scroll to the very bottom of this post and type your response in the box). Thanks! And don’t forget to go visit all the other fabulous friends, we are all Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and have really been having fun with this new blog hop! Grab your favorite morning beverage and enjoy!

 

I have been having so much fun with a brand new product in our catalog called Pigment Sprinkles (it is item number 149663, page 179 in the catalog). It is similar to the Brusho we had in our last catalog, except these are six Stampin’ Up! colors! Can you tell what colors I used on this card?

(if you guessed Gorgeous Grape, Bermuda Bay, and Granny Apple Green, then you are right!) 😉

Last night on my Lynnzcrafters business Facebook page I actually did a demonstration using the new pigment sprinkles and I showcased four different cards I made. (But I didn’t show them this card as I wanted to save it for you readers on the Blog Hop.

Here is a close-up of our brand new shimmer white embossing powder, can you see the shine and glitter in the embossing powder? The stamp set and die bundle I used is called Friend Like You bundle, it is on page 124 of the new catalog item number 151084.
