As I look back at 2013, I am so overwhelmed and thankful for all of you wonderful friends, family and customers. You have helped me in numerous ways and I have continued to build my Stampin’ Up! business (which was one of my New Year’s Resolutions). Now, as I look forward to 2014, I have set a couple goals (aka Resolutions) such as “Making better choices” and “Building my Stampin’ Up! business even more”- the sky is the limit and I think these two resolutions will certainly keep me busy. Do you set any resolutions? If they are crafty-related, and if I can help you, please let me know…. I would be happy to help you with any of your crafting resolutions!

Happy New Year- be safe out there! thanks for stopping by to visit my blog, I appreciate your time!

January Classes

Hi There Stamping Friends!

Did you know that we launch a brand new “mini” catalog on January 3rd, 2014?? It is our Annual Occasions Catalog and it is jam packed full of ideas, new stamps, ribbon, papers, dies, texture folders, and trinkets galore! I pre-ordered some “must haves” and am planning my classes and events for January.

In order to plan classes that are productive (meaning 8 people register for each one), I would like your input…. what would you like to see me offer? Card classes, stamp camp, stamp-a-stack, home decor, Valentine’s class, kids craft day, or something else?

Are you interested in joining one of my monthly clubs? Clubs meet once a month at my home, I currently offer a Saturday morning (9-11 am) or Monday evening (6:30-8:30 pm) option. I have planned the dates to be the 2nd Saturday of the month, and then to keep the Monday club in the same “weekend”, it’s the Monday following the 2nd Saturday (usually the 2nd Monday, but in June it’s actually the 3rd Monday).

For club, there is no class fee but you commit to order at least $25 per month and the free hostess benefits are rotated among the club members. The month you are hostess, you bring treats. It’s really fun, simple, I clean my house and have room for up to 8 people in each club. Right now I have a couple spots in each one. I also am willing to add another club and consider another location. Amsterdam, Galway, Hudson Falls, Albany, and Ballston Spa are just a few towns where I know I have some stamping customers who have expressed interest in clubs in the past, but haven’t joined yet- maybe you’d want to start a club in your home or a location nearby (fire house, Elks club?) someplace we’d be welcome once a month?? Contact me if you’re interested.

Here are just a few cards I’ve recently created to showcase some of the new upcoming products:

card3 card card2

Please leave a comment and let me know what you’d like to see me offer first in January… or if there’s something I haven’t thought of yet. I’m always looking for new ideas.

Looking forward to stamping with you in 2014.

Fondly,

Lynn

MDS to the Rescue- quick TAGS!

Hi there Crafty Friends-

This post comes to you straight  from our Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio blog created by the uber talented Heather Summers,  from the My Digital Studio Design Team:

MDS has got to be the best holiday saver around (and time saver)! I LOVE how easy it is to create adorable projects and to then hit print for the number of items you need! This year create all your tags using the Color Me Christmas download. I love this stamp brush set and have been having a great time using the freeform tool to color in the images!  Create and print these tags at home from your printer. You will be SO thrilled with them and love that by just adding a little bit of linen thread you still have an adorable, hybrid creation!

I was so super thrilled that my 2014 Annual Family Calendars arrived on Friday via UPS. I loved how they came out. I went with the 8 1/2 x 11″  format, which is a perfect size. I couldn’t wait until Christmas and when I had my family over last night for my brother and sister’s birthday dinner, I surprised them with the calendars. Happy to say everyone loved them, and commented how much they missed them last year. *Well for those of you who don’t know- 2012 was a tough year for me medically speaking, I had several surgeries, one at Thanksgiving time, which put me very behind for the holidays. I just never caught up and once it was the end of January I just decided to skip the homemade annual calendars. Well, never again!

Don’t forget today at midnight is the deadline to get any of these weekly deals:

weekly-deals-dec-17

I’ll post some pictures of what I came up with another time. Just wanted to get these quick tag ideas to you- and let you know I’m going to be busy these next few days, and wanted to wish you a Very Merry Christmas!

Thanks so much for all your support, for your lovely comments, and for taking the time to read my blog.

Fondly,
Lynn

Holiday Carry-Over List is Here….

Hi there stamping friends! How are you doing? Did you get your Christmas and Holiday cards done in time? I think I just made it. Have been skimping on sleep again the past few days, I vow every year to start cards earlier but I never seem to do it. I think I’m going to do a dozen cards a month starting in January- what do you think of that idea? Who’s with me??

Speaking of holiday cards, you might not realize that we are down to just the last few days of our current Holiday 2013 mini catalog. It expires on January 2, 2014. I’m thrilled to say that Stampin’ Up! has created this “Carry-Over” PDF file for you to print and save. (I like to keep mine right in with my current specials/promotions ring).  I’m so thrilled to see the Joyful Christmas top the list. It is by far one of my most favorite stamp sets in the whole catalog. I might actually make it for some winter birthdays as well, since the poinsettia is a winter flower, not just a Christmas icon, what do you think?

Holiday Carry Over List

So what is not carrying over? everything not on this list, and items that didn’t make it in the Occasions 2014 Catalog that launches on January 3rd, 2014. (We do know that the burlap ribbon and silver ribbon trim, along with the metallic gold and silver ink pads are carrying over). So, if you loved some other set, (like the adorable “Snow Day” where you can build your own snowman)- now is a great time to order it- think of it as a gift to yourself! Or contact me after Christmas and let me know if you need anything before it’s gone. Here are my three favorite cards I made with the Snow Day stamp set. Recognize the third one? It was featured at my Columbus Day Stamp a Stack event.

I’m equally sad that Calm Christmas is not on this carry over list-I just love that dove and “Peace on Earth” sentiment, I used that a lot in my workshops and card events this fall, here are just a few of my favorites.

Well, I better get back to work- I’m grading final exams- I can’t believe grades are due by Monday 12/23… and I had a big group of 30 students this semester. I can’t believe how quick this semester went!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a great night.
