I don’t know what I would do without my fabulous team- huge kudos to Amye for prepping and teaching some awesome techniques on two cards (the flower patch and birthday balloon); lots of thanks to Jamie for making a cute treat holder for each attendee (I didn’t take any pictures of that!) and many thanks to Amye, Jamie, Wendy and Sharon for coming to help for the afternoon, it made it so nice and relaxing for all the stampers. You guys are the best!! Ready to do it again on May 16th? (Mark your calendars- we’re doing a morning class more news to come soon!)

New Clearance Rack items and Retired List

header_retired2015_email_April2115_ENG-1

 

Hi Friends- did you have a chance to mark up your catalog yet? I haven’t finished either, but wow- there are dozens of great stamps that are retiring that are some favorites of mine. Although the retired list came out Tuesday and there was a mad rush and lots of computer/server issues, and many in-colors and accessories sold out, there are still lots of stamps and even more items added to the clearance rack!  So while we’re saying goodbye to retiring products from the 2014-2015 annual catalog, before we do, we’re giving everyone an opportunity to order their favorites with discounts up to 50 percent off retail. Retiring products will only be available until June 2, or while supplies last, so now’s a great time to get them before they’re gone!

*Note: Due to high demand for retiring stamps, we’ll keep producing retiring stamps until May 26 (not accessories-accessories are only while supplies last).

Here is the updated list (Stampin’ Up! updates the list every weekday at 4 pm): (the “x” in the last column means that item is sold out)

Some people look at this as a sad time, time to say good-bye to six pages of Stampin’ Up! products… but I look it as an opportunity to get GREAT deals on some must haves and this means the new catalog that launches on June 3rd is going to be chock full of awesome new stamps, inks, punches, dies, kits, embellishments, and papers. I can’t wait to see what the new In-Colors are for 2015-17….  any guesses on what colors will be introduced?? What colors do you want to see in our next in-color group?

Friends, at these prices, do not wait to get something that you really want… I have been extremely surprised at how quickly we sell out of things on this list, especially items listed for 50% off.

Creative Inkling Blog Hop- Happy Mother’s Day!

creative hop

Hi there Stamping Friends! Thanks for hopping this way on our Creative Inkling Blog Hop for April! Isn’t this a talented group of demonstrators? I am learning so many wonderful techniques from all of them.

This month the theme is Mother’s Day. This month in my club some ladies commented that it is a little hard for them as their mothers are deceased… I do plan alternate greetings for my customers so they can individualize their cards for what ever purpose they’d like. But this got me thinking about doing something other than Mother’s Day cards for this month’s hop. I did feature lovely floral cards and Mother’s Day cards in my clubs this month, here are some samples (in case you didn’t visit me this month): https://lynnzcrafters.com/2015/04/13/april-club-projects/

So I decided that what I wanted to show you is a Mother’s Tribute, using our lovely new Hello Life Project Kit (found on page 6 of the Spring Catalog). Here is the photo of what the collage frame looks like if you complete it exactly as is:

hello life kit3 hello life kit2 hello life kit

 

Well the great thing about this kit, is it is super easy to customize and you can use the frame for many different purposes. you could change it out seasonally, or give it as a gift. Not sure if you can tell, but I used the clothespins, the frame and the shaker frame for my tribute display, so I have almost all the supplies I can reuse and make another display for another time.

For this month’s blog hop, I decided to use it as for a Mother’s Day Tribute to my dear Mother. I’m blessed to have a wonderful Mother and we live about 4 miles from each other, love that we can see each other often and we attend church together, it is a great time for the two of us.

I have mounted this on my living room wall, it’s the first thing people will see when they enter my home. I used one of those awesome command hooks, I got the one for up to 5 pounds of weight.

Also- a reminder, It’s a great time to grab those labels framelits (they are a weekly deal for 25% off until 4/20 at midnight)…

If you would like to order this kit from my online store, here is a link and please use hostess code: SNGCRCUA

As a thank you for your order, I will email you the directions for how to make this Mother’s Day tribute as my free thank you!

(Please do NOT click the “no contact” button when you are filling in your information, or I won’t know who you are, and I won’t be able to send the tutorial to you. thanks).

Already have this kit, but you’d like my tutorial anyway? I’m giving it away free with all online orders of $25 or more from 4/20-4/30/15. Contact me if you have any questions.

I love to hear from you, so please leave a comment, I really enjoy reading them! thanks!

Retirement….

RetiredList

 

As we get closer to the end of the Stampin’ Up! year, we’re getting ready to retire stamps and accessories from the 2014-2015 annual catalog. Don’t worry, though! You will have the opportunity to order retiring products at discounted prices (up to 50 percent off retail) before they’re gone. I highly recommend that you start evaluating your current inventory and get ready to place your orders on April 21 if you want to be sure to get what you really want.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you love the 2013-2015 In-Colors (Crisp Cantaloup, Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush and Pistachio Pudding) they are retiring and always sell out within hours of the retirement list going live… so if you need reinkers, paper, matching ribbon or designer series paper- I would recommend you order it BEFORE 4/21.  I have an order going this weekend, so let me know if you need these things before they are gone.

 

dsp 2013-2015InColors markers

 

I will then have another order going in the evening of 4/21 (after work), and of course I have orders going in each week, so if you want to save on shipping, let me know- I can combine orders, or give you the best hostess code to use. *but please know that all the sale prices are “while supplies last” and I can’t guarantee that your item will still be available if you wait for me. Best bet is to order from my online store with the hostess code below.

Thanks for stopping by- hope you got the last two blog posts with the flyers for upcoming events. you are going to LOVE the 5 cards we have planned for you on April 25th- you won’t want to miss our Spring Fling! It’s going to be an awesome afternoon of fun!

For order April 15-21st please use hostess code: PFQKPJYR

Have a great day!

Sheltering Tree Frame Class

Hi there Stamping Friends,

I was pretty happy to finally make something on my long list of projects this past weekend. I had been wanting to make a four seasons framed art piece since January when I found this frame at the Christmas Tree Store in Colonie. It took me a few tries to get the color combos that I thought would look nice together. I decided to mat all four pieces on a 4″x6″ piece of basic black card stock. I think it really helps it pop. I did have a couple problems, first was I didn’t know how to get the frame apart to slide the finished pieces inside. I ended up trying to pry the back off and ended up breaking one glass panel. I’m off to a local glass shop to get a new piece made, right now scotch tape is holding lovely “Spring” season in place. Hope you can’t notice that in the photo.

treeclass

So I’m offering this as a class, on Saturday May 2nd, three options either 10 am, 2 pm or 6:30 pm. I decided to offer three time slots as I know how busy everyone is and thought it would make sense to offer it morning, afternoon and evening. Plus, weekends are precious and few and some weeknights are out for me. Hopefully this will work well. This class is in my home, and will be a small group (I limit classes in my home to just 8 people as that’s what fits comfortably in my craft room).

This is a $25 class which includes the stamp set Sheltering Tree.

Here’s a flyer with all the details: 4 Seasons class

Let me know if you have any questions… hope you can attend this fun class what a great Mother’s Day or birthday gift for someone special!

Prepayment and registration is due by April 22nd by 8 pm… that is my birthday and I’d love to be putting in a nice big order of stamps for this class! Hope you can make it!

Thanks so much, feel free to pass this info on to your friends and family who might like to come and make these four season inserts. (You provide the frame).

Have a wonderful day!
