More Awesome Sales!

sale nov26

Hi there stamping friends!

Did you wake up to snow where you are? I’m not a fan of winter, or snow, mainly because I have been in several car accidents, always in the winter weather (and always hit by someone else who’s car is out of control). Yes, it is pretty to look at and I do like having a white Christmas, but that’s it. I’m always a little anxious if I have to drive in it. Here’s hoping you all have a safe drive today whereever you’re going.

I wanted to bring you these awesome deals, honestly I can hardly believe how many products Stampin’ Up! has rolled out in the weekly deals and in the Holiday Sale!! Many of you are getting those deals, and I thank you for shopping my online store! Can’t wait to pick a winner of the hostess dollars!!

Oh What Fun, banners and more!

Hi There Stamping Friends!

Have you noticed that my blog posts are not coming as often as they once were?? I’m sorry about that- here’s a nice long post so you can catch up on some creations and projects I’ve been working on.

First of all, so proud of our Girl Scout troop #2637, on Veteran’s Day the girls made over 50 Thanksgiving cards for the annual Equinox Thanksgiving Meals delivery program. They did such an awesome job, and I was thrilled that they wanted to continue in that generous spirit and last night they came over to my house again and we made over 100 Christmas cards for the “Holidays for Heroes” program sponsored by the Red Cross. The girls quickly decided they’d have more time to create cards if they didn’t have to slow down to write on the inside of each card, so they dictated to me a little saying that we all agreed on, and I printed on the computer.

There was plenty of giggling, stamping, punching and getting to know our 2 newest members of our troop. The girls learned more about what “deployment” means, and we talked about one of the rules for card making “no glitter”… when I asked the girls if they knew why that was a rule one of them raised their hand and said “so the enemy doesn’t find them and kill them”. Of course she was right, but I didn’t think a 3rd grader would know all that.  Anyway- they surprised and impressed me, and were so grateful and kind and sweet, my heart just melted watching them having such a good time. Here’s a couple pictures of the girls in action:

gs cards6

I just adore that she signed this one… girls who care indeed!! ❤

gs cards5

This one is so special, one girl wrote “thank you” inside each star…

gs cards3

And here they are, all 114 cards in all… notice anything special? One girl took great pride in organizing the completed cards into color families- I was impressed… might have to hire her to help me clean and organize my craft room.

gs cards

There is so much more I could say about last night, it was one of those nights that you’re just so blessed and thankful to have such wonderful children in your life. If you’re reading this Patty- thank you for asking me to help you this year with the troop, I am loving every minute of being your co-leader and looking forward to making more memories and doing important service project with our girls.

Today has been a super fun kind of day, I had 2 events today- my Christmas Banner class was this morning and each person signed up for either “JOY” in silver/blue or “MERRY” in red/green.

joy banner3

How many people does it take to make one rosette???? 3 apparently. Too funny, and some nice tips and tricks to get these together.

amy banner

I didn’t get to take a picture of each person’s banner because I had to run downstairs and pull apart the pork shoulder I had been cooking in my crock-pot. I invited these ladies, and my team for lunch as I knew I wouldn’t have much time between banner class this morning and my team get together this afternoon.

Thanks to Jamie’s wonderful recipe (same one we made on our girls weekend get away up to Lake Luzerne last month) we enjoyed a delicious meal together:

healthy lunch

Then we moved into more stamping fun, and created some beautiful framed art…I came up with the red (actually Cherry Cobbler) version as an alternate as some don’t decorate their home in blue/silver:

What one do you like better? Either of these creations could be mounted inside either 8×8, 8×10 or 12×12 shadow box frame. I did one in each size to show the options, and I helped a couple who brought their frames with them today.  This is a preview of the framed art class that I am doing Tuesday night… it was supposed to be our final class at the Elks for the Christmas series we put together, but we didn’t get enough people to sign up in time to use that big room. Luckily, I have 8 people coming on Tuesday, and they will get to choose which one they want to make. To make my life even easier, Amye wanted to make both framed art pieces, so I am going to offer it to my club ladies for our December club projects. What a way to wrap up my clubs for 2013, right? Hope they all decide to re-up for our next term January-June. I’m working on the calendar for that this weekend too.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by to read my blog. Don’t forget that we have MANY awesome deals going on prior to Black Friday, did you print the flyer with all the sales? Here it is again, if you need it:

Ho, Ho, Ho!

To get a little jump start on all the “Black Friday” shopping and wonderful deals for you to consider, Stampin’ Up! is pulling out all the stops for their Holiday Online Shopping Sale! This is a sale to beat all sales!!! But instead of one or two days of sales, we have things marked down (while supplies last) for 13 days- you can get incredible discounts-up to 50 percent-on some of your favorite products! This is the perfect time to stock up on some of your favorite items or if you are a new stamper- it’s a great time to give Stampin’ Up! a try.

And make sure you don’t miss out on our 24-hour-only doorbusters happening on the first day of the sale-30 percent off the Stampin’ Trimmer, Simply Scored Diagonal Plate, and Many Marvelous Markers! The 24-hour sales period on these three products ends at 11:50 PM (MT), November 20.

Here’s some fine print (details about the sale):

  • This sale is the same as the annual Online Extravaganza sale of years past–just with a simpler name.
  • Discounts range between 20 and 50 percent-awesome!
  • Discounted products are available on all order types (customer, demonstrator, workshop, and online).
  • Hostesses who have earned a 50%-off item may not apply that discount to an already-discounted product.
  • There’s no minimum purchase required to participate in this promotion. Sale on!
  • For product bundles, you need to use the bundle item numbers provided. If you use individual item numbers, you won’t get the discount-bummer.
  • You can buy additional products from any of our current catalogs on the same order.

Also- if you are wondering about shipping times from Stampin’ Up! for any of your online orders, here’s what they posted on their website today about shipping estimates:

We recommend that you submit your holiday orders by the following dates to receive them by December 24:

  • My Digital Studio print products: December 6 for regular shipping, December 14 for Second-Day Air, and December 15 for Next-Day Air
  • Traditional products: December 17 by 11:50 PM (MT)

Delivery times vary depending on where you live; if your personal experience indicates that it takes longer for packages to reach you, you should allow a little extra time for shipping during the holidays. As you know, we cannot control delivery times. Holiday mail volumes are high, and our delivery services encourage customers to ship as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

**Don’t forget I offer beautiful gift certificates- if you would like to give (or receive) one- contact me- I can work with your family or loved ones to make this an extra special gift.

For any of you who do take advantage of these amazing specials, I encourage you to shop from my online store at:

http://Lynnstreifert.stampinup.net

and use the Hostess Code: XFM343XF

My name will pop up as the hostess, but on December 2nd, I will pull one customer’s name out of a hat, and that person will win all the hostess benefits. that’s right- YOU could earn free Stampin’ Up! products, in addition to these amazing sales, you could win free things too! All you have to do is order from my online store between 11/20-12/2 (the length of the Holiday Sale). then on 12/3 I will pull a winning name using Random Number Generator and will contact the winner with the amount of their hostess winnings. I just wanted to do a little something extra as my thanks for those who participate in my online store.

Happy shopping, and Saving!! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Stamping Frenzy…

Hi there friends!

Im sorry I haven’t posted much lately on my blog…. (I have been popping things on my Facebook Lynnzcrafters page if you’re worried about missing anything, be sure to “like” that page). Well the reason why is my calendar is bursting at the seams with the Book-a-thon results, lots of card and tag parties, and a big vendor fair I participated in yesterday.

image

This is me with my booth all set up. We were in the Atrium (where I go stamping with seniors every month). It warmed my heart that so many of my family and friends came out to shop! There were actually 20 vendors there, a wide selection of goods. A shout out to my wonderful sister Sue and niece Claire who brought me lunch (I don’t even think to pack a lunch), and watched my booth so I could use the ladies room.

image

These mini coffee cups were a huge hit! I put a Starbucks brand K-cup (for the Keurig machine) or people could swap out the coffee for Hershey kisses.

image

More goodies, I put individually wrapped mints inside the reindeer tins.

image

I made 40 of these mini magnets, stamped on our whisper white paper, punched out with 1″ circle punch, then used crystal effects to adhere to the flat bottom glass rocks. Hot glued the magnet on the back.

image

These post-it notes holders were very popular. I stayed away from decorating them with Christmas papers so people could keep them out year round.

image

All my Christmas gift card holders sold quickly. This one was everyone’s favorite.

image

Wanted to show you how I wrapped up hostess gifts for Sheila, who had her fun tag party Friday night!

What do you think? Would love to hear from you! Please leave a comment. Also, looking for your input, I am doing an event at Glendaal Elementary School in a few weeks- Holiday Bazaar, where the kids can shop for gifts for their families… Is there anything you think I should offer? Thanks for your input!

Have a wonderful Sunday! I’m off to a workshop up north today, my friend Elizabeth booked a party for today.

Thanks for visiting my blog, I really appreciate you!

Stamping with Seniors- November

Today was my monthly stamping event at the Atrium, a Senior Citizen Retirement Apartment Complex. I was asked to offer Thanksgiving and Hanukkah items this month. Here’s what I came up with.

atrium nov9

atrium nov atrium nov2 atrium nov3 atrium nov4 atrium nov5 atrium nov6 atrium nov7 atrium nov8

Many sincere thanks to Amye, Judy, Sheila, Claire, Ashley, Nicole, and Sophie for volunteering their time today so that these seniors could have some stamping fun. I think the girls enjoyed going door to door to invite people to come stamp and then they went around at the end of our stamping time and delivered hand-made cards and decor to the residents. The girls got a lot out of it, and I heard them commenting “did you see her smile when we gave her that card??” sniff, sniff… this friends is what “pay it forward” means, to be giving of your time, talent and spirit is worth all the gold in the world. I hope we melted a few hearts today, well besides mine that is. So proud of my group of friends who are so generous with their time. Thank you a million!

Well, off to my first booking from book-a-thon at Jen’s house tonight. Will post pictures tomorrow.
Take care, thanks for visiting my blog!
