BOGO Sale and Raffle

Hi there friends,

Just a reminder that the next Lynnzcrafters team Stampin’ Up! garage sale and BOGO Sale is this Saturday, January 28 from 9 AM to noon at the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church located at 816 Route 50, across from Gil’s garage. 

In addition to selling our retired Stampin’ Up! stamps, inks, papers, punches, big shot dies, texture folders, there will also be a fundraiser going on at the same time. A very generous friend is helping me have a fundraiser for my sister-in-law Kathy who has been battling Crohn’s disease for over 20 years, and has been out of work since September 10.  I had done a go fund me page in the fall, and so many generous friends and family helped out. But the medical bills are mounting, and absolutely no verdict yet from Social Security disability income. So we have five raffle baskets, the raffle tickets are $10 for an arm length. Raffle tickets will be on sale now through February 3. The drawing for the five winners will be held at my next bingo event on 2/3 I will even videotape it and post the winners on my Facebook page. 

Here is a video clip with all of the prizes, ( I added a few paper pumpkin kits to bundle #3). 

Bundle #1 is a brand-new big shot machine, including magnetic platform, and 2 texture impressions embossing folders (fluttering and confetti). 


Bundle #2 includes 2 brand new Tin of cards designer kits, a Tin of cards photopolymer stamp set and acrylic D block. 


Bundle #3 includes 4 paper pumpkin kits: hello sunshine makes 9 cards, blissful bouquet makes 9 cards, love you a lot makes 8 cards/tags, and thankfulness makes 4 cards/boxes, a  Stampin’ Up! pop up scrap/trash bin, snail, acrylic D size block. 
Bundle #4: The wood mount stamps set flowering fields, clear mount stamp set birthday blooms, and Clear-mount stamp set “You Plus Me”, scalloped tag topper punch, acrylic E size block, three ink pads: cherry cobbler, mint macaron, calypso coral, and two rolls of ribbon. 
Bundle #5: Baby Bear stamp set, Christmas taggable’s stamp set, Momento ink pad, watercolor winter craft kit, presents and pinecones washi tape, real red stitched edge ribbon, mica flakes trio, metallic thread combo pack real read an emerald envy, and Candy Cane Lane designer series paper.

I am humbled by my friends generosity, and so very thankful for her. I hope to see you all at our sale on Saturday, but if you are not able to attend, and would like to purchase raffle tickets,  please contact me – I am happy to help enter you in the raffles! 

Thanks so much and enjoy your day!

Creative Inking Blog Hop-Let’s Sale-a-Brate!

ccbh-image

Welcome to the 2017 Kick-Off of the Creative Inking Design Team! We are thrilled to have you visit our blogs today! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the USA… Today’s blog hop features products from the new 2017 Sale-a-Bration Catalog by Stampin’ Up! and since this is the magical time of year where Stampin’ Up! rewards customers (and hostesses and demonstrators), it’s a great time to Sale-a-brate and celebrate!

 

 

As soon as I saw the cute little trucks in the 2017 Saleabration catalog I knew that there would be a lot of fantastic uses, ice cream truck, taco truck, cupcake truck, the list goes on and on. This is the card I came up with for my Valentines card class I had the other night. This was my first choice stamp set out of the new Saleabration catalog I could not wait to get my hands on this cutie, it is free with your $50 minimum order.

.

I want to share with you a couple of treat holders I also came up with for my Valentine’s Day class. The little test tube is from the September paper pumpkin kit and I filled them with red and white candies called sixlits. The little chocolate holder was made with our tag topper punch (start with a piece of whisper white card stock that is 5 1/2″ long by 2″ wide, punch both ends, then fold in 1/2 and voila!)  This size holds one Ghirardelli chocolate candy and came together very easily with some washi tape, I stamped the image in melon mambo ink and punched it out with our sweetheart punch. (If you want to hold more than one Ghirardelli’s or different sized candy, you can play around with the length and score the bottom to make different size treat holders.)

 

 

These were all the cards my stampers made at class and they just loved them!

 

Well, that’s my offering for today, thank you so much for visiting my blog! I would love to hear from you, and would love to know what your favorite new product from the Sale-a-bration catalog is for 2017?? (scroll to the bottom to leave me a response- I read every one!)

Stampin Friends Love Theme Blog Hop

16105586_10154776821071101_7119539629866751638_n

 

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop! Thank you so much for joining us today, I hope you enjoy our new format for 2017! This month’s theme is Love and Valentine’s Day. If you’re following along the hop, you’ve arrived from Steph’s blog.

15894722_10154773448991101_1666745528435465476_n

 

First up are my 3-D creations for this hop. I have scheduled a framed art class around the theme love and Valentine’s Day and class members will get to pick which frame they would like to make. I wanted to go with “outside of the box” ideas, what do you think of these projects? I know many people like everything even/level, I went with my squares tilted in the red and white version. The punch art owl (in the red/white framed piece) was inspired by Dawn Olchefske (I am so crazy about owls, my friends and downline always share them with me when they find them on the internet). The little mini lights are battery operated, perfect for my table.

Next up is my Valentine’s Day card that I offered my club members this month and since I also offered a Valentines class last night and none of my club members took that class I was able to use this card again. (I never really use the card if the same stampers are going to be in the class I want them to always have different cards, it can get hectic to keep track believe me). Do you notice the stitched framelits I used for the whisper white square? I am so thrilled these are back in stock and available for you to order they flew off the shelves on November 1 and I can’t remember how long it took to sell out, just a couple days, but they are back now and hopefully here to stay until they launch in the new catalog in June. (they are my favorite die at the moment!)


And this cute little card I came up with to also offer at my Valentine’s Day card class, it’s so fun to feature the new products and mix in some old favorites from the annual catalog, don’t you agree?

You can see the products I used for these projects all the way at the bottom of this post. (If you click any image in that list, it will take you directly to my online store).

Don’t forget to click the Next button to continue on the hop with Cindy’s blog. Our complete group of hoppers for this month is listed below, in case you want to hop around, hop back or you lose your way and need to “reboot”… and scroll to the bottom for my very special offer!

Card Rack Replenish Day!

Hi there stamping friends, how are you on this cold Saturday morning? I was burning the midnight oil to finish packaging over 90 new greeting cards to replenish the card rack at my friend Kimberly’s beauty salon, Bella Nani Salon and Spa in Ballston Spa, New York. Kimberly has supported my business for many years and I’m so thankful she allows me to have my card rack in her salon.  (I happen to have two extra card racks in case any of you would like to showcase my greeting cards, let me know.)

 New for 2017 I have stamped greetings on the inside of each card, except the blank cards of course. And I stamped the greeting on a piece of copy paper facing the back – so everyone can see what the greeting is as they are now all enclosed in a clear envelope. I’m thinking this will help the cards hold up well as customers look at them and handle them, and also will prevent that glitter creep from falling on other cards.

 I sell my cards for $3 each and they all have the Stampin’ Up! copyright logo on the back, (as per our angel policy these images are protected by copyright so if we sell them they must have a stamped copy right.) Every card purchased helps me replenish my supplies as I keep working towards earning the incentive trip to Alaska! I want to be on that boat in 2018!  



Let me know what you think of these cards and if you have any suggestions, custom orders, special occasions, or feedback I would love to hear from you! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

If you are thinking of ordering anything this month, please use Hostess Code: 2VHJHJP2 

I appreciate your support of my business very much! Have a great day!

Creative Circle Design Team- Love is in the Air!

img_4251Hello friends! Thank you for joining us today for another exciting blog hop with the Creative Circle Design Team! I am so thrilled to participate with this month’s talented group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!! Our amazing leader, Liz Holloway, created a file for us to use on our Silhouette Cameo machines- and you are going to be wowed for sure!

 I use the silhouette cameo machine and the file Liz sent and cut out all my hot air balloon pieces, and sat down to color them with our new Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils, they are dream to work with and I use the blender pen to soften my coloring to give it the water color look.

 I had trouble cutting chipboard so I opted to just cut the file on our new SAB paper.


This was a breeze to put together, I love how adorable it is perfect for a table decoration for a birthday, Valentine’s Day or special occasion.


I can’t wait to see what the other ladies have come up with! thank you so much for stopping by my blog today, click the “next button” to go see what Kate has created this month:
