Lynnzcrafters Team + Bingo Night! 

Last night I had the pleasure of having my team over for our monthly get together. I changed things up a little bit this time and I had the girls pre-register two weeks ahead of time and I ran my monthly team meeting as a bingo night. My bingo nights are so popular I wanted to see how it would work having my downline come to a different night then my customers usually come. I think everybody was pretty happy here are a few pictures of the prize winners and swaps.

This was my swap, only I accidentally left it on my desk at work because I was finishing them up on my lunch break so I’ve got a pop these in the mail to everyone.

Here is the side view of Amye’s swap, isn’t this adorable, it’s a spinoff of my little jar of love treat holder from club. 

Here is the front, didn’t she do great? 

This is Laurie’s gorgeous card- love the succulents!

Here’s Tiffany’s swap, love this color combo for spring! 


Last, but certainly not least, is Lisa’s awesome swap, I try to angle the camera so you could see all the shimmer …. she used wink of Stella on all the flowers and it really just pops, absolutely stunning!

I forgot to take a picture of Sheila, who was the first raffle winner of the Stampin’ Up! shopping spree, I sell extra bingo boards for five dollars each, and Sheila was the winner of a $45 shopping spree. (last month at bingo the winner earned a $95 shopping spree!) 


Kim was the first winner of the general raffle, (everyone gets a raffle ticket for attending bingo night, for bringing a snack, for swapping, and for my normal bingo nights my customers get tickets for ordering from me.) 


Amye won the first game of bingo! I spy some glimmer paper! 


Laurie won game two! Yes that box is one of the now sold out gold striped card tin! 


Lisa won game 3! She loves those succulents! 


Brigid won game 4! More glitter Paper!


And Tiffany won game 5! She picked out ” Nailed It!” … (since there were only eight ladies here for bingo last night, we played five games and did it 4 cards. On Monday night when I have my make up for my bingo night when I was sick, my customers will be playing six games of bingo and they will be the same for cards, come back and visit me next Tuesday and I will be showing you all the cards that we made! 

I forgot to also take a picture of Elizabeth, she did not win at bingo, nor did she win a raffle so she got to pick a stamp set out of my prize basket.

Hopefully my team saw the other side of bingo, how to run it as an event that will help them with their sales, fingers crossed that it was all worth it! I really love to pamper my team and show them how much I appreciate all of them. I wish everyone could attend every month but I get it and understand somewhere far away and some have other commitments and health issues. I felt that it was important to do a training with them on how to do their own bingo night and I have already heard that some of them are planning to host their own, good luck ladies!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by tonight I hope you have a great weekend!

Creative Inking March Blog Hop

Hi there friends!

Welcome to our March Blog Hop where our gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper (DSP) is the STAR! That’s right, all of us bloggers are show-casing amazing projects with our stellar DSP! I have to say, about this time every year I begin to think about the In Colors that are retiring (Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon, Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe and Cucumber Crush) and I think “what will I do without these colors” and I often go buy up all the reinkers, and Designer Series Paper with these colors as we know they will retire as of May (and we usually run out sooner than that). So, word to the wise, if you don’t have these colors, and you want them, get them soon!


 Well my favorite retiring InColor is mint macaron so I had to showcase my favorite DSP,  Succulent Garden (item 142778,  page 21 of the Occasions Catalog).  This card also uses two of the fabulous Saleabration items- Avant Garden stamp set and metallic ribbon combo pack. The colors I used to stamp: Sweet Sugarplum, Old Olive, and Tip Top Taupe. 

This second card also features another gorgeous pack of Designer Series Paper called Falling in Love DSP. (Item #142788 page 51 in the Occasions Catalog). I also used the So Detailed Thinlits Dies (item #142751 Occasions Catalog cut out of Very Vanilla cardstock). For this card, I used a whole punch to create 2 holes to tie the metallic ribbon which eliminated the need for glue under the detailed cut out piece. I used basic grey archival to stamp the greeting from So in Love stamp set (item #143112 page 52 Occasions Catalog- hey this is bundled with the thinlits for a 10% savings. It’s called the So in Love bundle, item #144739 clear mount is what I used). 

I hope you like these two cards, let me know what you think. They are cards for my next Bingo event. Sadly, I have been very sick and have had to reschedule my events of the past few days.

Stampin Friends Easter Blog Hop

16105586_10154776821071101_7119539629866751638_n

 

Hi there Stampin Friends!! Welcome to the March Stampin Friends Blog Hop! This month our theme is “Easter”, I can’t wait to see what everyone has prepared for this month, this is a really talented group of stampers, don’t you agree? Also, I’d like to welcome our two guest hoppers this month Mandy Reedyk and Sue Vine! Can’t wait to see your creations ladies! Also, new this month, we are trying a new format for our hop. You will find a list of names all the way at the bottom of this post, and you just need to click a name and it will take you to that person’s post. Fingers crossed that I “did” the link correctly! Funny story, we created these blog posts several weeks ago to be ready for this new format, and my intro said “Hello friends, what a beautiful spring week we’ve had”… well the laugh is on me, we’ve just survived Winter Storm Stella- or the Snow Apocalypse of  2017. I live in Upstate New York and we clocked in with 22” here in Glenville! I feel very blessed to have had 2 snow days the past two days! (oh the joys of working for a school again! I missed snow days so much the last 11 years). And I’m also thankful for a garage to park my car and my dear dad who plowed me out (twice) and a wonderful neighbor who snow-blowed my driveway!! The poor road crews have been working non-stop to clear our roads and highways. Kudos guys!

 

First up is my trio of Easter projects that I created just for you!


This cute egg carton Easter treat holder was designed by a fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Peggi F., at our local Upstate Stampers get-together. She did such a great job with this design! I love the “polka dots” created with our reinkers, a little rubbing alcohol, and dabbed on with a q-tip! So sweet- thanks Peggi!!

.


 

This card I created especially for an Easter Card swap with Tami White. I made 8 of the same cards and mailed them off to her, and received 7 different ones back. (I’ll share those in a different post). Since I only needed to make 8, I decided to do a “more difficult” technique- so this is the side-step pop-up fancy fold card. I used mint macaron as the base and the in color’s DSP for the backgrounds. This new stamp set is called Easter Message (page 19 of the Occasions Catalog). I used our awesome watercolor pencils to color all the images.


I used our basic grey archival ink pad to stamp and watercolor on our watercolor paper and colored with aqua painters. The trick for me, is to color with a dull pencil, (not a sharp point). Also, I think the gold foil really works as the matte, it makes it pop, don’t you?


This card was a runner up for my Easter swap, but in the end it was far too complicated to make 8 of them. This pop and twist card is all the rage out there, but does take some time to cut and score all the elements. I used the Easter Message stamp set again, love it so much.


Here is the open view of the card, what do you think?


Funny story about this little Easter treat… I needed to come up with a shower favor and the theme was blue flowers in blue mason jars. So first I created the favor and then I realized it would easily convert to an Easter treat holder for my March club get-together, so I went shopping again for more of these little Lindt chocolate lambs (sorry if you live in Glenville, NY and you need some, I bought them all- and I wiped our Target and CVS.)


The little green base is a 2 3/4″ square (I used pear pizzazz here) and it is scored at the 2″ mark on all four sides. You cut four of the score lines to create tabs, so you can complete the little box. I stapled mine to hold it closed. Then glue on the jars and eggs, and embellish!

 

Well, that is it for today, I read all your comments, and I treasure each one. Would love to hear from you. If you have any questions about the supplies I used, let me know. They are all current Stampin’ Up! products found in the 2017 Occasions Catalog, Saleabration (glimmer paper) and Annual Catalog. I hope you have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by. Now just click on a name and hop around to see the other 10 crafters blog hop posts for today!

CCDT March Madness Blog Hop!

img_4251

Hi there crafty friends and welcome to our March Blog Hop with the Creative Circle Design Team!! Thank you for hopping by today! We are a small, but mighty group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who love to share our creations with all of you! These ladies always amaze me, and I have learned so much from each and every member of this team.

This month our theme is “March Madness” (I know for many people that has a basketball analogy, but I’m no sports fan, sorry)… so I’m opting to share with you five cards I recently did at my stamp a Stack class.

This fun birthday card shows off the Party Animal Designer Series Paper, the base is in emerald envy card stock. The stamp set I used is Badges and Banners, which coordinates beautifully with the Best Badge and Duet Banner punches.  Other colors used are: Pacific Point and Crushed Curry.

This card was so easy to color with our new watercolor pencils and a blender pen on our Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper (this is a free Saleabration item), and a cooper foil dragonfly. (Sadly I have been needing a lot of sympathy cards lately.)

 

I received a beautiful swap with this set Big on Birthdays and decided to change up the colors. I used calypso coral and wild wasabi markers to color in the flowers and as the cardstock colors for the card base and layer. I used the petal burst textured impressions embossing folder for the base.

 

This is one of my favorite cards I designed just for this class (and shout out to my team who was over my house for my first ever “Open Studio Day” last month- they gave me wonderful input, and I love how this came out- thanks ladies!).  I just adore the the “Beautiful You” stamp set, stamped with stazon ink on our watercolor paper and used our new water-coloring pencils and an aqua painter. Do you see that shimmer on the umbrella? That is the clear Wink of Stella pen- just a great finishing touch, I think.

This last card is similar to the card I made recently for my dad’s birthday. This used the new “Nailed it” stamp set, matching dies to cut out the tools, and features the new hexagon textured impression embossing folder.


This is one of my most popular classes- I do this on the 4th Monday of every month. It is a 10 card class (2 each of 5 designs) with envelopes. The ladies always love making a whole stack of cards.

We Create Blog Hop- March Step it Up!

img_9579

Hello everyone, and welcome to our March Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who love to show you a simple project and then a “stepped up” version- it’s wonderful to get so many ideas and inspiration from this talented group!


First up is this sweet birthday card I made at a gathering of Stampin’ Up! demonstrator’s recently and this card was designed by the talented Jacqueline L. I love the watercolor wash on our watercolor paper that was with blushing bride ink. The three little succulents are die-cut from our new Oh So Succulent dies and the colors used are: blushing bride, pear pizzazz, and sweet sugarplum. The happy birthday greeting is from “rose wonder”. (also Gorgeous Grunge was used to add the little dots).

 


When I got home from the gathering I knew that this would be a perfect card to use for our blog hop- to show a “stepped up” version and show off our new glimmer paper. (this was a new addition to our Saleabration items that we launched on February 21). And this card I made especially for a dear friend’s birthday. I know she treasures hand-made cards. I did use the sweet sugarplum ribbon and stepped up the “happy birthday” greeting with the layering ovals dies.

 

What do you think? Do you like the dazzling dragonfly?

In case you missed it, here are the three new offerings for Saleabration:
