New Clearance Rack Items

Wowza! Just peeked at the clearance rack… Lots of discontinued items from the 2013 Holiday Catalog are being cleared out!

image

Also some great Weekly deals!!imageRemember that everything is “while supplies last”…I’m not sure what’s going on, but things have been flying off the shelves lately.

Hope you get what you want! For the next two weeks I will have this Hostess Code available: FYEDDKD6  

If there are at least $150 in online orders linked with this hostess code, then I will put all the names in a hat and will pull one lucky winner (I will record the process and will post the video) to win the hostess credits. This will enable everyone who “NEEDS” these clearance rack items and Weekly Deals to get them- it will ship to your house- and you might even earn more rewards! Fingers Crossed!

Thanks for stopping by my blog twice today, wish I had thought to check the site this morning- must have been all that new catalog excitement!

And don’t forget- all my Paper Pumpkin Subscribers this past quarter are invited to a free night of stamping at my house on Thursday night May 1st… hope to see you here!

Happy Shopping.

Stampin’ Up! Catalog Launch Party!

Good morning Stamping Friends!! I’m a tired girl this morning- we had a very fun first time EVER event last night (and boy do I hope Stampin’ Up! does this again!) They booked 40 movie theaters across the country for 7,600 demonstrators to attend a #‎CatalogPremiere party. The live broadcast was in Los Angeles, and I attended the viewing at Crossgates Mall in Albany, NY. I was thrilled that 4 of my downline were able to attend with me…. (but we missed you Kim, Judy and Kristen).

It wouldn’t be a SU event without some gifts. These are the notebook covers and new pens I ordered from Vista Print. The pens say “Lynnzcrafters” on one side and “Thank you for being on my team” on the other side. With owls of course.

su-catalog9

Do you see the new product in this picture?

su-catalog7

We had a very nice dinner at Pizzeria Uno before the catalog launch party.

su-catalog5

Some stamping sisters Val and Peggi were right next to us!

su-catalog4

My upline Dania had a nametag contest- here was a photo of me wearing my nametag.

su-catalog8

Amye was pretty excited (and made the cutest name tag- in my honest opinion)

su-catalog3

It was so great to see and hear Shelli Gardner, the CEO and co-founder of Stampin’ Up! (she had a serious accident last summer and is a walking miracle) isn’t she elegant?

su-catalog10

And here it is… the brand new 2014-15 Stampin’ Up! Catalog!!! Isn’t is adorable?? I love the three generations of hands on the cover! I can’t show you any of the inside of the catalog yet, but will be ordering my new catalogs on Thursday…. and have planned my catalog launch party for my customers and friends on May 15th. Let me know if you want to attend- leave a comment on this post.

So happy for Jamie- she won the first prize patrol! YIPPEE! This set is so versatile can’t wait to make some new projects with this!

su-catalog1

Here we were outside the movie theatre with our free stamp set, catalog, and Stampin’ Connection Magazine.

Whew, it was a fun night, a good time was had by all! Whew, this girl is pretty excited about all the new items and some returning favorites. I’m not allowed to spill the beans or show you individual items, but I CAN say that all of my friends who loved the canvas banner kit/refills in the Holiday 2013 catalog will be as excited as I am that they CARRIED over and are in this catalog- YIPPPEEE!! I am thrilled!! There are hundreds of new items, stamps, In-Colors (I can’t remember if we can talk about the new names yet), more to come!

Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by my blog today! Happy Stamping!

Free Shipping Ends at Midnight

free shippingme

I just wanted to remind you that FREE SHIPPING ends tonight at midnight!
I’m so thrilled with how many people have taken advantage of grabbing some retiring stamps/accessories and didn’t have to pay shipping this week!
Way to go- that is a 10% savings right there!

I’m going to have some math to do I see- because I promised anyone placing a $50 or more order that they would receive 5% off… well some of you placed online orders- so I’ll be emailing you this weekend to let you know what you can get with your earnings.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend- you won’t hear much from me as my list of things to do is a mile long…. top on the list is grading 34 research papers by Wednesday… wish me luck!

Happy Earth Day!

 

Hi There Stamping Friends!

Happy Earth Day!

earthday

I have to admit something to you… I used to be “kind of upset” to share my birthday with Earth Day (isn’t that so immature??) It’s only been the last twenty years that I’ve been able to embrace and enjoy Earth Day being on MY birthday… just being honest here. My sister and my BFF used to do some Earth Day parties when we lived in Mont Pleasant for the neighborhood kids… I had a flash back to that this morning as I sat in my prayer chair and gave thanks to God for such a blessed life. I honestly teared up this morning thinking of how fortunate I am and it was overwhelming to get so many phone calls, texts, emails, e-cards, Facebook messages and the mailman has been bringing me such great mail!

I thought I would share the homemade cards I have received so far… I plan to continue celebrating my 50th birthday for the rest of the month!

Please don’t get me wrong- I LOVE all my cards- the store bought ones are touching and special to me to- it’s the thought that counts, right! I just thought that since you are reading my blog about stamping/papercrafting- that you would enjoy seeing the handmade cards, am I right?

I took today off from my “real job” so I could sleep in, have a leisurely morning, and later I’m going out to lunch and get pedicures with my loved ones… then later tonight my family is having my birthday dinner. I can’t wait- my brother (who’s a chef), his wife (is an amazing cook too!) and my sister (the best cake baker ever!!) are going to spoil me. The best part is being surrounded by my family, we are so close- not just physically close, but our emotional ties go deep… and I am so blessed to have my family.

I went on our Stampin’ Up! website this morning and was so happy to see a new announcement about Paper Pumpkin! This is the BEST news I could imagine, Paper Pumpkin keeps getting better and better!

Paper Pumpkin Prepaid FAQs
Q: What is a prepaid subscription?

A: Prepaid subscriptions provide an opportunity to purchase several months of Paper Pumpkin all at once. These orders can be placed on a customer, workshop, demonstrator, or online order. Plus they will qualify for hostess benefits.

Q: How many prepaid months can I purchase at once?
A: You can select a subscription for one, three, six, or 12 months.

Q: Is there a discount for ordering a higher number of months at once?
A: Yes, there is a savings. When you order a six-month subscription, you save $1 per month, and when you order a 12-month subscription, you save $2 per month.

Q: Can I order more than one prepaid subscription at once?
A: Each Paper Pumpkin account can only use one redemption code at a time. For example, if someone buys two six-month prepaid subscriptions, they’ll enter the first code and then, after six months, enter the second code.

Q: How are prepaid subscriptions redeemed?
A: When the order is paid for and closed, you will receive an e-mail with a redemption code and instructions on how to redeem. The e-mail will guide you to http://www.mypaperpumpkin.com where you will enter your code. The system will recognize the number of months you’ve paid for.

Q: Can a current subscriber order a prepaid subscription?
A: Of course! After you order and enter the code, the prepaid months will be used up before any future shipments are charged. When the prepaid months are over, the subscription will continue and be charged monthly to the credit card on file. Keep in mind that if a current subscriber is already attached to a demonstrator, the existing subscription will remain with the original demonstrator.

Q: Can a prepaid subscription be ordered with a hostess code?
A: Yes! You can go online and enter any of the prepaid subscription item numbers so the hostess can get credit!

Q: Can I buy a prepaid subscription with hostess benefits?
A: Yes. A prepaid subscription can be added to either the free or half-priced hostess items.

Q: Can a prepaid subscription be ordered as a gift?
A: Yes. Although this isn’t officially a gift subscription program, you can buy a prepaid subscription and give it as a gift. You’d just purchase the prepaid subscription and when you receive the redemption code, share it with the recipient of your choice who can redeem the subscription at http://www.mypaperpumpkin.com. One thing to keep in mind is that the redemption codes will not work across borders. (So, someone in Canada could not gift a subscription to someone is the US and vice versa.)

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s a great time to take advantage of these prepaid subscriptions that can be bought as gifts. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!

Item Paper Pumpkin Prepaid Subscription Price (Shipping Included)
137858 1 month $19.95
137859 3 months $59.85
137860 6 months $113.70 — save $1 per month
137861 12 months $215.40 — save $2 per month

Hi there Stamping Friends!! I hope you had a glorious weekend, I know I sure did…we had a wonderful Easter brunch and egg hunt for the kids, and such fun taking pictures!

Hi there Friends!! Wasn’t yesterday just a glorious day?? Beautiful weather, and we had an AWESOME turn-out at the Relay for Life Fundraiser Event in Saratoga! Thanks to all my friends and customers who came and shopped- it was so great to see so many of you! Weren’t the other vendors great too?? Such awesome people and all for a great cause!

These little chocolate filled purses were a big hit!

10261823_10151997491981781_1159821768_n

I was so thrilled that my little mini coffee cups (aka Bunny cups) were such a big hit- I sold out of these guys again, and really enjoyed everyone’s delight in these little sweets.

10276445_10151997491976781_1009923165_n

I had a nice spot in the middle of the room, surrounded by new friends!

10154880_10151997491991781_664536269_n

What do you think of my set up? I will share I felt a little crowded and am on the look-out for shelving or something to help me organize when I do more of these events… if you know of anything that might work for me, please let me know- okay? thanks!
