One of the things I love the MOST about Stampin’ Up! is all the ideas, support and talent they have amongst their creative team. Look at these ideas for using the new Word Bubbles framelits! HOLY COW- I didn’t even think of using them as a stamp. I’ll be playing with my Word Bubble framelits to see what I can come up with- hope to post it Monday for the weekly “Manic Monday” challenge I have on my facebook page.

bundle wordsDon’t forget we offer a 15% discount if you purchase your stamps and framelits in a bundle. Here is the Clear Mount Bundle for this set:

What a BIG Day!

Hi there crafty friends!

First of all, I MUST wish my awesome niece Claire a very Happy 9th Birthday!

claire

I showed you the Card in a Box I made for her on Sunday, but wanted you to see the birthday girl herself! This photo was taken by my other niece Jordan, who did Claire’s hair for the father-daughter dance on Friday night. I have to give a shout out to my sister Sue, (who is much more artistic than I am)- Sue made this mask out of tulle, craft paint, gems, feathers and I think some hot glue. It was a week long process to create this one-of-a-kind special mask. (Although there was a contest for most original mask, alas they didn’t win- but I don’t think the judges asked any questions or looked too closely) What do you think of this mask?? Beautiful, right?

Well, onto other big Stampin’ Up News- grab the coffee there’s a lot to report. First of all, today is the first day of Sale-a-Bration!

Pop Up Cards… (Yes, I scheduled a class!)

Hello there stamping friends!

Did you have a nice weekend? I sure did, why do the weekends go so fast? On Friday night I had my Lynnzcrafters team over for a fun night with yummy snacks and stamping fun. It was Wendy’s birthday and I was itching to make one of the “Card in a box” kind of cards that have been popping up all over. I like to call them “Pop Up” cards, here’s what I came up with:

card in a box1

I have to admit when I saw other demonstrators versions of these cards online, I thought it would be super hard. I’m happy to say I watched 1 video and then came up with a template that was easier and faster to put together. I know that it can be challenging to worry about scoring in fractions, so I made this a simple 2-4-6-8 pattern for scoring. This was Wendy’s birthday card. I decided to teach my team how to make these cards, so they could make more of them. Here’s the card we made Friday night:

card in a box2

I also wanted to show them some other new stamps and products, so I also prepared these projects for them too:

card in a box3

Remember the little coffee cups? So cute decorated for Valentine’s Day and filled with Hershey’s kisses. The other two cards feature one of our new single wood mount stamps called “Vivid Vases” it is item#133818 for only $11.95 and is a fun stamp to use various coloring techniques. Here we did the card on the left with our markers and the card on the right we used reinkers and the aqua painters. So fun.

While I was on a roll with these Pop up cards, I decided to make one for my niece Claire, who will be turning 9 years old on Tuesday. We are having a family birthday dinner tonight to celebrate her birthday and her dad’s birthday which was last Monday. I added 9 balloons since she’ll be nine years old, what do you think of this card?

card ina box7

I like the fun bold colors from the Designer Series Paper Birthday Basics (item #130145 price $10.95)- here I used summer starfruit, crisp cantaloupe, bermuda bay, gumball green and raspberry ripple.

card in a box5

you just need to be a little careful putting it in the envelope (and be sure you have LOTS of glue dots on hand).

I had posted a photo of one of these cards on my Lynnzcrafters facebook page on Saturday morning and it was very well received. People asked “when’s the class?” So I looked over my schedule and decided to offer a “Pop Up” card class on Monday February 17th from 2-4 pm. This class will feature 2 of these Pop Up cards and 2 other types of pop up cards- one using the big shot. You will learn how to make 3 types of Pop Up cards altogether, but will have two of this type of “card in a box” featured here today. One of the pop up cards will feature balloons like I have shown here, the other will feature flowers that pop up, and you can customize it for any occasion- birthday, get well, thinking of you, or just use it for a decoration. This class fee will be $15 to include materials and snacks. If you purchase $50 or more (it is Sale-a-bration you know) then the class is FREE!

RSVP via email to me at LStreifert@nycap.rr.com to reserve your seat in this class. I only have room for 8 stampers.

Yesterday I spent the day at an Ambit Energy training. Did you know I am also an Ambit Energy Consultant? I have been for over 3 years, but I got a little complacent after finding my 15 customers that helped  me earn free energy every month. I decided I wanted to “step things up” this year and am going to be looking for new customers who want to save money on their monthly energy bills and also find people who would like to learn more about the Ambit business opportunity. Contact me if you would like more info. thanks!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today! I hope you have a blessed day!

Valentine’s Bash was a Blast!

I forgot to show you pictures from our fun Valentine’s Day Bash on Monday! (I’m sorry to admit, I’m getting more forgetful).

valentine1 valentine2 valentine3 valentine4

I had a full house here- for me that is 8 stampers in my craft room. But I forgot to take photos of the second table, they made the cards and treat holder first, and I didn’t get any action shots of them. Sorry Amy, Tatiana, Amy and Mary Beth! (Remind me next time, unless you’re camera shy).
