New Card Kit Launched Today (and news…)

Hi there stamping friends, I have a lot of news to share! look what announcement Stampin’ Up! made this afternoon:
We’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response to the new Envelope Punch Board–so much so that that you have nearly sold through our supply weeks sooner than we anticipated! We have already taken steps to restock our inventory, but the new supply will not arrive in the Distribution Center until mid-October. We anticipate that the Envelope Punch Boards will be placed on backorder in the next few days.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we are working to ensure that we can fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. We will keep you posted as we learn the exact dates of availability.

Supply running low

I have an online order available in my online store until Saturday morning at 9 am….but I can’t guarantee that they’ll still be available. Use Hostess Code 4PQQCQEG

The other HUGE announcement is that we are launching a brand new kit called Everyday Occasions Cardmaking kit. This kit is chock full of card stock, stamps, ink, clear block, twine, buttons, envelopes, and more! Everything you need to make at least 20 cards!
Here’s the flyer:

Everyday Occasions Card Making Kit

Do you ever run out of time or ideas, but still want a hand-made card? Or you just don’t want to spend $5 on a card at the Hallmark store?? This kit is for you! It comes in a great storage box and you will be able to make cards as you need them!

Lastly, I wanted to share some “enhancements” my friends made on their Halloween Framed Art tonight, they used our wonderful Dazzling Details to add some bling to the hat buckle, candelabra, and spider web… Wish I had thought of it… That’s what I love about stamping get together s like tis, I learn from my stamping friends too!

5 year Anniversary!!

Hi Friends-

Today is my 5 year anniversary with Stampin’ Up! They mailed me a lovely 5 year pin, an awesome congratulatory letter and today I got the cutest e-card made in My Digital Studio from my Business Coach ReNee. I’ll tell you, this acknowledgment of my 5 year mark was a very nice surprise, as I thought it would be recognized when I went to either Leadership Conference or Convention next year. But they remembered, and it made my day, and I just wanted to share how happy it made me. I have never regretted my decision to sign up with Stampin’ Up! I only wish I had done it oh, 2 years sooner! I have made lifelong friends that I would have never met otherwise. Stamping has made it so much easier to stay in touch with my dearest (note I didn’t say “oldest”) friends who I used to teach with…. and stamping has bonded me with so many individuals. Luckily my skills have improved and with all the new tools, tips and tricks I receive from Stampin’ Up! I can pass these on to you- my loyal friends and customers. So, in honor of my anniversary today, I’m going to draw one winner using random number organizer (I will list comments by number) and will draw one winner Friday morning- all of you who leave me a comment to this post within the next 48 hours will be entered to win!!  Winner will receive one free stamping class with me or 5 handmade fall themed cards- winner’s choice.

Tonight we have a fun event at the Elks, I hope I remember to take pictures this time. stay tuned, I’ll post later this week.

Hot off the press- a brand new photopolymer set just in time for Halloween, how cute is this??

Stampingwith Seniors and more news…

Happy Saturday morning to you!!
Well I have a busy weekend planned, how about you?
Last night we kicked off the new season with our Brownie Troop, did I tell you my sister and I are co-Assistant leaders? We feel confident under the leadership of the awesome Patty that we will have a great year. Mark your calendars for Saturday October 19th for a multi-family Garage Sale (all the families in the troop and I will be donating items to see to raise much needed funds)… More details to come. Oh and the girls are going to make those cute bracelets that are all the rage right now, in the color pink, for Breast Cancer Awareness month. I’ll post pictures when they make them.

This morning I have a bunch of ladies coming over to make this fall frame:

New Stamps! Map it Out & Greetings From

mapitout_greetingsfrom-2blog

Today Stampin’ Up! announced the addition of 2 new photopolymer sets: Map It Out & Greetings From. They’re great by themselves, but when used together they can help you create customized maps for so many things: save-the-dates, moving postcards, travel keepsake containers, and just-saying-hello cards, to name a few.

mapitout_greetingsfrom-1blog

Most of the images fit perfectly on the smallest clear blocks, and are easy to layer and line up. But be careful not to lose any of the little pieces—they are sneaky! They also coordinate nicely with our circle punches letting you create easy tags or embellishments for scrapbook pages.

mapitout_greetingsfrom-3blog

The greetings from the Greetings From Stamp Set fit perfectly around the state abbreviation icons from the Map It Out set. Add a dashed line, an “x” to mark the spot—and other fun details—and you’ve got a perfect postcard to send to friends and family to let them know you’ve moved.

mapitout_greetingsfrom-4blog

I personally think these stamps would be great to help teach US geography in school or home-schooling environments. Also- great for treasure maps, birthday party invites, and road trip bingo boards. The possibilities are endless with these!

I just added these to my own wish list, can think of lots of uses for these babies.
happy stamping!

TGIF… Lynnzcrafters Team Stamping

Wow, this was quite a week, wasn’t it?  i love my weekends, so much more time for stamping and creating… I prepared a couple fun cards for my team get together tonight, here they are, what do you think?

image

I wanted to feature new products, so we are using the new circle and label thin lists to be able to make these cute “swing” cards, it’s so easy! The little leaf file folder card I learned how to make while watching a you tube video from another demonstrator named Patty Bennett. Wouldn’t this be a great card for a secretary or co-worker? It was so easy with our new envelope punch board and stamping trimmer.

Spoiler alert, the little Halloween card featured here is also a card my club girls will make too (in addition to the fall banner I showed you he other day).

Did you see my post yesterday about the clearance rack new additions? Well, I saw online that some items are already sold out, so if you had your eye on something get it quick, and don’t forget to use my hostess code to get the lower price and to be entered to win my monthly on,one drawing.

Well, thanks for reading. Have a great Friday!
