Paper pumpkin wreath fun and more…






Hi there stamping friends, did you get your April paper pumpkin kit? How adorable is this wreath kit and stamp set? So many awesome alternative ideas are out there on our Facebook group and on Pinterest. You should totally check them out. 

Stampin’ Up! gave us a little sneak peek of the May Paper Pumpkin Kit while we were at OnStage Live. The Many Manly Occasions kit will include 8 laser-cut cards and envelopes with sentiments for birthday, Father’s Day, and many more! Be sure to subscribe by May 10 so that you don’t miss out on this kit.

You can either sign up for a subscription where you are billed monthly for your kit or you can purchase a prepaid subscription in my online store. To see more information and to sign up for the monthly subscription, click here. To see the options for prepaid subscriptions in my online store, click here: Lynn’s Online Store.


Would you like something to take your paper pumpkin kits out and about with you (they are great travel buddies to take on vacation, or to the office to work on during your lunch hour, you name it !)?How about this adorable tote? I am going to reward all my paper pumpkin subscribers who have been with me at least three months with this bag. I will be contacting you in the near future to arrange delivery. I can order these bags on May 3. Any new subscribers who join with me will also get this bag in the future when they’ve stayed with me at least three months. I have a couple other surprises up my sleeve for rewards this year, stay tuned! 😃

I also love that Stampin’ Up! gives us a great video every month to show how to put the kit together (as intended), of course you know you can do anything you want with it -it’s your kit!

Some Lynnzcrafters team fun!


On Tuesday I had my team over to my house for our monthly get together. We celebrated birthdays with some yummy cupcakes from Villa Italia. 

I passed around all my purchases from Onstage product premier pre-order. 

I passed out some prizes, and rewards for attending and for their performance in the month of March for top sales and recruiting. 


The amazing Tamra Davis from TA-Da Creations made these awesome bone folders for my team with my little owl logo and name. She brought them to Utah and gave them to me last week. Everyone loved them!


There were awesome swaps as well!


I unfortunately don’t remember who made what card… Sorry ladies!


The theme was masculine cards, something we never have enough of right?


So five people swapped this month, love them all!


We made a botanical blossoms framed art piece, here are the ladies working on their squares. 


Here is Elizabeth with her piece. 


Tiffany and Joan created theirs with some slightly different pieces… I always love it when people individualize to make it their own!


This is Kim and her framed art. 


And last but not least is Brigid with her framed art.

I missed getting a picture of Laurie before she left – hers was awesome too!


This Birthday card was from Laurie. 


And Tiffany made me this one. 


This pretty birthday card was from Brigid. 


This birthday card was from Elizabeth. 


Birthday card and tag were made by Kim!

Well what do you think of my fun team? We have a get together on the third Tuesday of every month at my house in Glenville. Would love to have you join our team contact me for more details if you’re interested in giving us a try! 

Thanks for stopping by to read the blog have a great night!

Stampin Friends April Blog Hop

marchbloghopa

 

Hi there Stampin Friends! This month’s blog hop is all about Animals! Animal lovers rejoice! Do you have a furry family member? You are just going to love all the amazing animal inspired projects this month!  We have three guest bloggers this month, be sure to check out their work (and remember to leave them a comment for the “Mystery Giveaway”). The guest hoppers this month are:

  1. Robyn Rasset,
  2. Kristal Bell, and
  3. Melanie Coverston

 

Welcome ladies, can’t wait to see your creations for the blog hop!

aprilbloghop1

 

I had picked this cute stamp set, “Hey Girl” out for the blog hop before I went to OnStage convention last week. Turns out it is retiring, along with lots of products I used today.

aprilbloghop2

 

I used my blender pens to color in the girl, dog, butterflies, and flowers. I used sponge dauber to add soft sky and then an aqua painter to add old olive for the grass. I fussy cut the dress by stamping on the Birthday Bouquet DSP.

For the treat project, I wanted something that would hold a little gift, this mini treat box is perfect for a pair of earrings, bracelet or necklace. Notice the scallop circle punch? That is retiring also… so if you don’t have it yet- grab it fast! Punches are so versatile, I like to have them all (for punch art projects too!).

As an OnStage participant, Stampin’ Up! has challenged us to hold one more event each month from May through October… I am committing to this and have been looking at my calendar and would love your opinions, what kinds of events do you think I should be sure to include in the next six months? I’m toying with some options (Kids Classes, Mommy and Me, Technique Tuesdays, or Memory Keeping Made Simple)… do any of those interest you? I’d love to read your comments… thanks!

It’s been a busy week since I’ve been back from Utah. Tomorrow is my birthday, and I took the day off from work for some fun outings and will finalize my #6monthstampingoals

 

Every month each of the bloggers in this group sends one lucky winner an item from their crafting supply inventory, that means 14 prizes, all you have to do is hop around and leave a comment with a hashtag #SFAprHop on each blog. Be sure to hop around and comment by Sunday April 24th. The lucky winner will be announced on Wednesday April 27th. Good Luck!

MainAd_retired2016_OLO_Apr1816_USCAI’m still a little jet lagged from my trip home from Salt Lake City- didn’t crawl into bed until 3 am…. haven’t been up that late in a LONG time!

Stampin’ Up! just released their retirement list for the 2015-16 Annual Catalog and 2016 Occasions Catalog. In addition to a long list of retiring stamp sets, there are also tools, brads, ribbons, buttons, scissors, big shot dies, In-Color 2014-16 products and much more, that are going away forever!

These items are while supplies last, hope you will consider ordering from me, in my online store, just click “Shop Now” button here on my blog, then click the “Shop Now” tab at the top of the page and then click “Retiring Products”  or here is the link: http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/CategoryPage.aspx?categoryid=100700

 

I’m having some computer problems as I type this… and the Stampin’ Up! website is very bogged down with thousands of demos trying to get on right now. I hope you can open this is the retirement list as a PDF:

OnStage Fun!

You will not believe how many awesome new products that are coming out in the new Annual Catalog (it launches on June 1st). 

  
This was our bag that we all received this year, it is such a great size and notice the new In-Color swishes? Can you guess the new names for the five new In-Colors? They are fun names for 2016-18, and the colors remind me of rainbow sherbet. 
Beautiful table 

 Beautiful table decorations adorned each table.

  
Loads of motivational signs all around! 

  
Sneak peeks of ALL the new products, and our very own catalog! 

  
Plus give-aways and Prize Patrol… Coming home with lots of new products!

  Sara and Shelli stamping and laughing together again! 
  
The Heart of Stampin’ Up! Award was given to a very special lady- congrats Peggy! 

  
Hanging with some fabulous SU staff, they were so sweet and encouraging! Thanks Andrea, Bonnie and Holly!

  
Sat with a great group of ladies at lunch- awesome sharing of ideas!

  
So happy to have finally met up with this uber talented lady- Michelle Suit (a Disney Punch Art Queen!)

  

 

Beyond thrilled to meet up with some of the gals from another great blog hop- the We Create crew… So much talent here!

  

I was so thrilled to be able to walk across the stage, and have my name read by Sara, for my $100,000 career sales milestone (I achieved in December). Thanks to all my wonderful customers and downline!

  

So inspired by the wonderful training by some top demonstrators, including the infamous and über talented Patty Bennett. 

  

Leadership training was even more special by sitting with Lynn Starzl, a demo I have admired and followed for years!

  Beautiful weather greeted us when the convention was all over. 

 
  

There was some kind of science convention going on as we were leaving… What caption would you give this picture?

That’s all for tonight… Hopefully more tomorrow!

Hello! From Salt Lake City!

Hi there stamping friends! I’m here in Utah for a Stampin’ Up! Convention- new name OnStage!

Having such a blast and feeling better too! While I can’t tell you anything about the NEW ANNUAL CATALOG (yet)- suffice to say it is amazing!! (More on Monday 4/18 when we can share!)

Here are a few highlights I thought you’d like to see:


First up, my swap card I made for an organized swap I was in with the Creating Success with Ronda Wade group. I will share photos of those swaps this weekend.


Next up- my swap cards for another organized swap I was in with Lisa Pretto’s group following her Ink Big Power Hour training yesterday.


The entire town is decorated with amazing banners featuring new Stampin’ Up! colors.

 

Today we had a full day of training, playing in the Product Playground, went to break-out sessions, learned many new tips and tricks and got to play with amazing NEW products! I am so excited about the new offerings- can’t wait to plan my Annual New Catalog Ribbon Share, and new this year- I’m also going to offer a Designer Series Paper Share too!

  

We had a sneak peek of the May Paper Pumpkin kit- and got to make a card featured in next month’s kit. They are allowing us to share this card with you- order by May 10th to get the supplies to make 4 of these cards, and supplies to make 4 other cards.

  

I did the happy dance of joy when I won prize patrol! (Val won yesterday and we’re both tickled pink with our winnings!)

  
You know the monthly blog hop I’m in called “Creative Inking”?  Some of us just happened to run into each other today- so thrilled to take this picture together!

Susan, Diane, BJ, Susan and I are pictured here:

  
Also, a huge highlight of today was watching the super hilarious Glenda Travelstead do a presentation with new products… she is such a wonderful presenter!

  

Another fun session today was presented by my friend Amy Jordan, she is a demo from our area and presented on our new All-Inclusive Kit. Adorable!!

  
  
Finished the night with a YUMMY dinner (and a beer) at Red Rock, an all-time favorite restaurant here in Salt Lake. We had to share the brussel sprouts! 

  
Whew, that’s it for today, thanks for stopping by, hope to have a few minutes tomorrow to blog also!
