Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die- I love it!!

Hi there stamping friends- did you get shoveled out? I don’t know about you, but I was glad the meteorologists were off with their predictions! Back to stamping news, boy I can’t say enough about these new adorable thinlits dies for your Big Shot machine!

(Don’t have a big shot yet?? Now is a great time to give Stampin’ Up! starter kit a try- get your big shot and grab some dies or folders- contact me and I can help you figure out how to get the MOST product you possibly can!)

 

Here is our cute little mini treat bag we featured at our Stamping Event last Saturday- we used the new Sale-a-bration Paper for a fun festive look:

I am always inspired, and slightly in awe, of the Artisan Design Team at Stampin’ Up! this year they have an international group of demonstrators and some of them recently shared their mini treat bag creations, so I thought I’d share with you, what do you think? I think you need this die- it is a must have for all your upcoming holidays and parties!

bag barbara meyer

This set was created by the very talented German demonstrator Barbara Meyer, I might not be able to read her blog, but I sure can admire (and CASE) her projects. Love it!

 

bag mercedes weber

The uber talented Mercedes Weber created these fun bags, I even love how she photographs her work, stunning! I must try the vellum for these bags, genius!

bag cindy schuster

Look at how Cindy Schuster turned the mini-treat bag into a gift card holder- wowza, if you didn’t want it before, I bet you want it now, am I right? Just make an insert to fit inside this bag and glue dot (or make tabs) to hold your gift card! Super smart Cindy!!

 

bag sarah sagert

Last but certainly not least is this cute trio from the amazing Sarah Sagert. Love her work, and boy- aren’t these cute for Valentine’s treats?? I can’t tell if she used a thin butcher type paper (like the paper SU used to put in our orders for packing) or if it is our crumb cake card stock, maybe I’ll go to her blog and ask her.

so what do you think? Need it? Hope so, let me know, I have an order going in on Friday 1/30 after work. Or link up to the order from my online website by using the hostess code below, order will ship directly to you.

Irresistibly Yours!

Hi there stamping friends! I hope you’re having a great week so far! I had a chance to play some more with my favorite new paper- Irresistibly Yours!! This paper is so awesome- check it out:

 

This paper is only available through March 30, 2015 as a FREE selection – when you buy $50 in Stampin’ Up! items (either through me or my online store), you can select this as your choice! Don’t have your own Sale-a-bration catalog yet? Contact me and I’m happy to mail you one!

 

 card SASjan

This photo showcases the Irresistibly Yours paper (see the three cards that I sponged?)… these are the cards for the Stamp-a-Stack event that was scheduled for last night- but due to the weather predictions, I decided to be safe and postponed it to next week. My stampers will be making 10 cards- they will get to decide what stamps, colors, or sentiments they want to use for their cards.

Since today’s Tuesday, I thought I would share the newest weekly deals (good until Monday February 2nd at midnight). I have to say, I love that Stampin’ Up! is offering the texture boutique as a weekly deal, I have been thinking of getting it for all the events and classes that I have, this is a no brainer now, it’s on sale, plus my discount, makes this a must have now.

Some of my stamping friends are heading to Orlando, Florida for the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference, wishing everyone a safe trip and looking forward to all your posts and pictures, have fun!

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by to read the blog today, stay warm and safe, wherever you are! (leave a comment and let me know if you got all the snow they were predicting). 🙂

Paper Pumpkin Sale!

paper pumpkin SAB

For the first time ever, we’re lowering the price of our 3 month prepaid subscription. During Sale-A-Bration (from NOW until March 31, 2015) you can save money and instantly qualify for a FREE product!

Why did we choose to discount the 3 month subscription? Because all good things come in threes! Here are three things we know you’ll love.

  1. Save $5.00 on your subscription.
  2. The price point instantly qualifies for a FREE Sale-A-Bration product.
  3. Skip to the fun for three months with all the stamps, ink, and paper ready to go for amazing papercrafting projects.

Why Purchase Paper Pumpkin during Sale-A-Bration?

If you:

  • are somewhat overwhelmed with all the choices in the catalog, a 3 month Paper Pumpkin Subscription is a fun and easy way to get started with papercrafting.
  • want to earn a Sale-A-Bration product, remember that for every $50 in products purchased from a demonstrator (that’s me) will earn you 1 free SAB item from the exclusive catalog.
  • already subscribe to Paper Pumpkin, you could purchase a subscription as a gift for their friend, spouse, child, or parent so so you have a crafting buddy every month.
  • are worried about the surprise factor of a subscription, check out some of my past projects,  here on  my blog… Stampin’ Up! offers a nice variety of projects perfect to make and keep or give away to that special someone.
  • have never tried Paper Pumpkin now is the perfect time-you can get a discount, grab a free product (SAB), and get three months of papercrafting bliss!
  • were a past subscriber, this offer is good for you too!

So how do you order?  Either contact me, or go to my website and order directly by clicking “shop” button, then enter the item code #137859 in the top left “search the store” box, click enter. When you see the three month subscription pop up, click “add to bag” then you can either go check out or continue shopping.  It would be great if you would enter Hostess Code: PQ7ZS6YX, my name will show up as hostess and if there are enough orders during the month to earn hostess rewards, I usually give those items away amongst those who order (this occurs at $150 minimum order). But no worries, you will earn 1 free item from the Sale-a-bration catalog just for this 3 month subscription. You might want to pick out your free item and have the order number handy before you start shopping… sometimes leaving the shopping cart open too long without finalizing the order can cause some mild “hiccups” lets call them, causing you to lose what’s in your shopping cart.

http://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/docs/paper_pumkin_flyer/flyer_PaperPumpkin_demo_5.12.2014_US%20%281%29.pdf

Usually the monthly kits ship around the 15th of each month, and shipping times vary depending on where you live. Here in upstate NY, my PP usually arrives between the 18th and the 20th of the month.

If you refer a new customer to me, who has never ordered from me before, (whether it’s paper pumpkin or any other Stampin’ Up! products) you will get to pick out a free adhesive or ink pad as my thank you for your referral.

Want to see what we received this month? It is so stinkin’ cute!!

I decided to fill these with candy yummies for all the ladies coming to stamp with us on Saturday for our SAB Kickoff Stamping event this Saturday- they will love them I’m sure!

Also- if you’re on Pinterest- I have a whole board full of pins of people who have made alternative projects with their Paper Pumpkin kits, some of these are great ideas- really inspiring! Here’s a link to my board, feel free to pin any that you like!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!

January Club Projects

Hello Stamping Friends!

I hope you had a nice weekend! I know I sure did. I had two of my stamping clubs and a Project Life event plus some time with family, always a bonus.

I wanted to share with you the projects I came up with this month for my club members. With Valentine’s Day a month away, and the gorgeous new Occasions Catalog, and Sale-a-bration, it was very hard to decide! So here’s what I came up with- 3 cards and a tiny treat box with chocolate candy inside. Let me know what you think, please? I really treasure your comments.

10384663_10152531033171781_3772260784614355227_n

This is a card I absolutely fell in love with, the original creator of this card is Mandie K, a fellow demonstrator. The butterfly basics is a must have bundle, this set is so versatile and can be used for numerous different cards, scrapbooks, home décor, and framed art. Stay tuned, I will be making a lot of projects with this set.

10858395_10152531033051781_3395486111867341369_n

Next up is another favorite new stamp- a single stamp- and Blendabilities! This is also a card inspired by another fellow demonstrator in our local Inketts group, Val M. She posted this card and I realized in all my tulip cards, I had not yet tried one in cherry cobbler, this was my attempt at variegated petals… what do you think? I added the little hearts from our new confetti hearts border punch- I just love this punch- it is so fun to make confetti to glue or insert behind window sheets. so fun.

10917070_10152531032926781_2646469925671791735_n

 

This card is actually inspired by one of the cards that is inside the Sale-a-bration catalog (page 5) do you notice the new products used here? I love the new Bermuda bay sequin trim, paired here with our gold sequin trim, just pull off the threads and you can use 2-way glue pen to adhere to your card.

 

10915263_10152531033366781_2986285904812441077_n

 

Last, but not least, is this cute little treat holder! I was so happy to see the tiny treat boxes carry over from the holiday catalog! it was so fun to create a little belly band and did you know that our cotton ribbon can be curled? I was playing around trying to work out a kink in my ribbon, and noticed that it curled easily with my fingers, so then I got out the scissors and curled it just like curling ribbon. adorable. Blendabilities were used again, just love how easily they color images, The rock star here is the new bow punch. With just a 2″x 4 1/2″ piece of DSP (new Stacked with Love DSP) you can get two punches to create both halves of the bow. And hey- if you are using DSP with a pattern that has a one-way directionality to it… here’s a little tip for you: punch once to get your three pieces, then turn upside down to repeat the 2nd punch… when you assemble this bow, then each half will have paper going in the same direction.  you need to get this little bow punch, he is so adorable, it will be perfect for wedding or shower favors as well as cards and numerous other uses.

10906451_10152531033671781_2808529315972485506_n

So here’s the whole group of projects together, I have one more club tonight, luckily I don’t think they mind me posting the projects before they arrive… at least I hope they’ll tell me if they mind. 😉

 

Well, that’s it for today, thanks for stopping by today. Oh, one more thing- I was invited to participate in a monthly Blog Hop with a group of very talented demonstrators from across the country. I have checked out their blogs and wowza. they are super talented. I am already working on some projects that of my own creation. The blog hop will be the 20th of each month, and there are 13 of us participating. (a blog hop just means we’re all linked together, so once you finish reading my blog, there will be a nice graphic image that says “next” and you click it and go read another Stampin’ Up! demonstrators blog, and continue “hopping” around to see all the projects. Whew, wish me luck!

Have a great day,

Do I have a New Blendabilities Deal for YOU!

6a00e54f9444b9883301a73de36672970d-800wi

 

Hi there stamping friends!

Did I confuse you in my blog post yesterday when I mentioned the Blendabilities Deal? I realized after I posted that blog that I had written my deal idea down in my handy dandy notebook, but I hadn’t told you about it yet! Ooops, sorry about that! I keep a little notebook and jot down ideas all the time- but this time I forgot to put the idea into action.

So here goes:

Option A:  With the roll-out of the new 2015 Occasions Catalog you surely noticed the 4 gorgeous new Blendabilities colors by now, right? Pink Pirouette, Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, and Wild Wasabi (page 32 of the Occasions Catalog) are $11.95 for a three pack assortment of light, medium and dark (dual tip alcohol markers made for blending and shading. Use with memento ink pad (Annual Catalog page 212). If you have already been a part of my past Blendabilities Deals, then this offer is for you! Order all 4 new colors and One Baker’s Twine (your choice of color)- this will add up to $50.75 earning you 1 free Sale-a-bration choice. My deal to you is FREE SHIPPING, so your total would be $55 (this amount includes tax). *do not use a hostess code for this offer, as I will not be able to issue you a shipping refund. I am taking the shipping charges out of my “instant income” on this order. 

 

Option B:  Missed the Blendabilities deal that I offered last summer? Well no worries, here is a deal for YOU!  The “I WANT IT ALL BUNDLE”- 12 Original Color families, plus the new 4 Occasions catalog color families (that’s all 16 of our color families), plus the 6 pack of Skin Tone Colors, Plus the Memento Ink Pad + refill, and Color Lifter Pen… this order would total $230 (before shipping/tax). Now pick out $20 of additional product (any stamps, paper, punches, dies,) until you reach $250 and guess what? Now you earn 5 Free Sale-a-bration items, AND get $65 in FREE HOSTESS REWARDS and my special deal for you is and Free Clear Storage Container (shoebox size) AND FREE SHIPPING (that means you save $25!!!) I will need to calculate your tax for you- so once you have your order figured out, contact me and I will tell you the total. *do not use a hostess code for this offer, as I will not be able to issue you a shipping refund. I am taking the shipping charges out of my “instant income” on this order.

buy5

 

Option C:  Perfect for those of you who already have some Blendabilities and/or the Memento Ink pad/refill…. This is a Buy 5 Get 1 Free Deal- This offer is good for the 3 pack color families that are $11.95 each. You would owe just $70 for this option, which is actually a $15 savings if you had purchased 6 packages of Blendabilities.  Oh, and guess what- YES you get to pick out 1 free Sale-a-bration item!!!    (note-do not use a hostess code for this offer, also- free shipping is not eligible on this offer, and it may not be combined with any other offer from me as I am using my discount to give you the free pack of Blendabilities).

January Jamborre!

Hi there stamping friends!

By now I hope you’ve looked over our new 2015 Occasions Catalog (aka the “Spring” catalog)… did you fall in love with our new stamps, dies, bundles, punches, blendabilities, papers, and accessories?? Did you see the beautiful butterflies dies??  I know, me too. So maybe you’re trying to figure out how you can earn as much as possible for FREE? I love to help my friends, family and customers earn as much free Stampin’ Up! product as possible! So here is an idea that might work for some of you.

Stampin’ Up! is in the DSA (Direct Sales Association), and one of our options for selling our products is via a hostess at a home party. Well, I know that not everyone has a space big enough for friends and family to come over to stamp and play. Although I’ve offered my craft room to be used, some are just not comfortable with asking their friends and family to be “obligated” to buy something. Believe me, I understand that feeling (hi I’m Lynn and I’m addicted to home parties)…. lol  🙂

 

jj2015logo200

Well, I thought of a way to help you EARN the same hostess rewards, but not have to clean your house or invite anyone to your stamping party- are you ready? It’s my new January Jamborre! (pronounced JamBearEEEEE) …. What is the January Jamborre??? (it is not that cute nail wrap craze going around)… Well, for the first 10 people who contact me and say “I’m in for the January Jamborre!” will receive the opportunity to receive hostess rewards on their $100 minimum order. (this offer cannot be combined with the new Blendabilities deal as that is already a very good deal and includes hostess rewards built in to the price).  Normally hostess rewards do not begin until you have a minimum of $150 in orders… but when we combine 10 people who order $100 minimum in products, then the rewards are amazing!! And I can share them with everyone in the group (and no one has to bake brownies or clean the bathroom) 🙂

IMG_3189

What do you get for $100? Well- first you pick out your $100 in Stampin’ Up! products from any catalog (Annual Catalog or Occasions Catalog). Next, you get to pick  2 free Sale-a-bration choices! Then, you add either One Half Off item (first 4 people who request this will get it) OR $20 Hostess Rewards dollars to be used on anything- including exclusive hostess stamp sets found in the back of each catalog! And Last but not Least, each of you will receive a set of three handmade cards featuring all new Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration 2015 products as my added thanks!! (made by me!!) I will figure out tax/shipping and handling and give you the total for your order. For the first four people who opt in and want the half price item- it can be used on anything current- like the Big Shot machine, or our entire Marker Collection. (that would be about a $50 value).  *please do not use a hostess code for my January Jamborre offer, I will be manually typing these orders in myself, thanks.

If you don’t have your own catalog yet- no worries- I’ve added the links to our online catalog over on the left toolbar, just click and it should open right away for you. Of course I want to get these two new awesome catalogs in your hands- so let me know if you need them and I’ll get them right out to you!

ALSO- did you know that Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscriptions can count and can help you earn free SAB products?? During Sale-A-Bration, you can get a 3-month Paper Pumpkin Prepaid Subscription for just $54.85. Get a discount and instantly qualify for a Sale-A-Bration reward? (contact me for the paper pumpkin 3 month prepaid code, and you will receive an email to redeem this deal once it is paid and the party closes).

My January Jamborre is the perfect option for those of you who love Stampin’ Up!’s products, want to earn hostess rewards and SAB items, but {for whatever reason} can’t have a home party. (and this will certainly help me out on my quest for earning the cruise too, so thanks!!)

If orders exceed the $1000 party threshold we are aiming for, then I will contact you and adjust your hostess rewards up accordingly.

What is the time frame on this offer? Sign up with  me by January 15th, 2015 (or while spots remain available). Then submit your orders and payment to me by January 22nd. (checks must arrive by January 16th to be deposited and cleared for ordering on January 22nd). Your orders will come to me and I will arrange pick up/delivery with you that works out best for both of us. (Orders should arrive by February 1st). *** If people sign up early and/or pay by credit card, I might be able to move this timeline up a bit… it will definitely be here in time for you to make some adorable Valentines treats and cards!

*Now if you love this idea, but just can’t swing it in January- I may repeat this in February and/or March- if there is enough interest. Just contact me and let me know if you might be interested in this Jamborre another month.

If you know anyone who is looking for some new fresh stamping supplies, or may want to stock up on paper, envelopes and adhesives and might want to jump in on this deal- please pass on my info to them! If they order from me (and are a new customer to me who has never ordered before- then you will receive a $10 gift certificate to use on anything you want- product or classes!)

If you have any questions, let me know!

Need someplace to jot down your wish list? Here’s something you can print out and use to keep track- use one side for the Occasions Catalog and the other side for the Annual Catalog (inks, paper, adhesives, dies, supplies).

just click:  Wish List!   (it will open as a PDF one page sheet for you to print out).

Something that jumped out at me right away was this beautiful bouquet kit… what do you think? Would you like to take this as a class?

Thanks so much for stopping by today and reading my blog! I’m going to be copying/pasting this information into a newsletter later this week as well since I know all my customers don’t subscribe to this blog feed and visa versa. Don’t want to miss anyone!

Have a great day! Happy Hump Day!

Lynn
