I did it!

 

Hi there friends!

I’m beyond excited, extremely overwhelmed, deeply grateful and feeling blessed to announce that yesterday’s sales at our BOGO sale helped me earn enough flex points for the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Alaska! I crunched the numbers a million times, and waited overnight just to be sure my math was correct. And there it was this morning, 160,308 flex points! YIPPEE!!

I cannot thank YOU enough- every reader, customer, team member, upline, sideline, downline, friend and family member, and most especially thanks to the incredible business coach, Ronda Wade (Creating Success with Ronda Wade), and Stampin’ Up! I could never have accomplished this without all of YOU!

I did a “reveal” tonight to my dear brother, who is going to be my “plus one” guest on this trip. Last year when I found out about the trip, and right around the time my dear mother was diagnosed with cancer, we had a discussion and she (in her oh so sweet and subtle way) encouraged me to take my brother Scott on this trip. So here’s a little fun video (yes- he is very HAPPY)… sorry it goes sideways (my sister-in-law shot the video on her phone).

The trip is next July, and I’m so excited I couldn’t wait any longer to tell you! It’s official!

Many thanks for every card you’ve bought, class you’ve taken, item you’ve purchased, Bingo night, Stamp-a-Stack, Monthly Stamping club, and also for my 18 wonderful team members who have joined the Lynnzcrafters team, I am forever grateful!

We’ll be planning a celebration bash at some point, more to come!

Have a wonderful night!

Love,

Lynn

Stampin Friends September Blog Hop!

 

Welcome to our September Blog Hop of the Stampin Friends group! I’m excited to be back with this talented group of ladies! And super huge thanks to our organizer, Elizabeth Thatcher, as we are bringing back prizes! For this month, the prize is this awesome Stampin’ Up! Hello Life Project Kit (retired). All you need to do to be entered to win this awesome prize is leave a comment on each of the blogs in this hop (click the names at the bottom of each post to go to the next person). You must add the phrase #SFbloghop2017 with your comment (tell us what you love about the project(s) and you’ll be entered to win!

Since I’m an owl fan, and I love Halloween, I wanted to show you my special project I did with my top 4 team members at our last “Way To Go!” Day (I reward the top four team members with a special meal, projects and goodies each quarter). Unfortunately two of them weren’t able to make it that night. They missed a yummy dinner of filet minion with the works!

This was a fun frame I found earlier this summer at The Christmas Tree Store. I knew I would be able to use them so I bought 6 of them.

 

Here is a close up of the cute cat and pumpkins insert. I used our awesome new embossing paste for the background. ( just added lemon-lime twist reinker for some color)

And of course I had to feature the cute owl stamp with this set!

 

Then for a coordinating card I wanted to keep using the cool new spooky cat punch, this was a card I featured at Bingo last night and I cased from a wonderful demo name Angela (we were in a swap together).

 

Here’s the list of other hoppers- remember to go visit each one and leave a comment in order to be entered to win our give-away!

Creative Inking Holiday Catalog Must Haves Blog Hop!

 

Hello and Welcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop for September! This month we are featuring all our Favorite Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog Must Haves! This was super hard for me, as I’m in love with most of the catalog! (and some things I haven’t had time to play with yet!)

I wanted to show you what my projects were for my monthly Bingo Night. I’m tickled pink that I have had such a great response to Bingo Nights, and I know I’m not the only one who looks forward to this fun night out! We make 4 projects, play 6 rounds of Bingo, have yummy snacks and all the prizes are New Holiday Catalog products! We all have fun, and I always have a waiting list! (I either need to get a bigger house, or start renting a space to have it so I can open it up to more people, I hate to leave anyone out).

These cards featured mostly Holiday products, let me know what you think!

Hurricane Relief

Help Stampin Up Support the Red Cross in Hurricane Relief Efforts

 

I love this company and all it stands for, I know many of you have been directly affected by Harvey and many others are about to be affected by Irma.  Stampin’ Up! is matching donations made to the Red Cross through this link, doubling our efforts to make a difference. I have made a donation to the Red Cross to help aid, you can too.

From Stampin Up:
Along with many of you, we are watching with concern as stories unfold about the devastation left behind in Texas and Louisiana by Hurricane and Tropical Storm Harvey. Though no one knows how many lives have been affected, Harvey is said to be one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, and the damage caused by massive flooding will be felt for years to come.With you, we’re also trying to stay informed on the progress of Hurricane Irma; as we write this, Irma has not yet made landfall but is currently classified as a catastrophic Category 5 storm. It will almost certainly leave as much destruction in its wake as Hurricane Harvey and will affect the lives of tens of thousands of people.

As a Stampin’ Up! family, we invite you to help us give to those who are now (or will soon be) trying to rebuild their lives. From now until the end of October, Stampin’ Up! will match donations made to the American Red Cross, dollar-for-dollar, for up to $50,000. Please click here to donate.

The Stampin’ Up! community is already making a difference through ongoing hurricane relief efforts. Here are some ways people are raising money.

  • Demonstrators are donating a portion of their commissions.
  • Demonstrators are holding dedicated events, including retired product sales, where all proceeds are being donated to hurricane relief.
  • Customers are being invited to donate at events.
  • Demonstrators are selling unused cards or are mounting past swaps on card bases and selling them (in accordance with the Angel Policy) to raise hurricane relief funds.

If you’re a Stampin’ Up! customer and would like to help click here to donate to the American Red Cross.

Together, we can do incredible things! We hope you’ll join us . . . because we truly can make a difference.

Thank you, Please help spread the word.

Creative Circle Design Team 3D Piano

 

Hi Friends! Welcome to the next International Blog Hop of the Creative Circle Design Team. We are organized by the amazing Liz Holloway and this month she shared an amazing 3D Upright Piano Card Box pattern for our electronic e-cutter machines. I am just in awe of her ability to create these cut files for us. The piano was super fun to put together, and I can’t wait to see what everyone has come up with this month! If you arrived here to my page from Liz’s- thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to continue on the hop with the list at the bottom of this post.

 

This is my piano card with the hinged lid in the upright position- there are tiny magnets holding this in place. I pulled out my light up Christmas tree as I used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper for my front/side panels.

Here is a close up with some added trim to decorate the piano- I opened up the Boxwood Wreaths (2 of them) and applied the bow made from the new tinsel trim (mini tinsel trim combo pack comes with 2 rolls- one is red, the other is silver- love this stuff!)

This piano is actually a card holder! Look how cute it is with a holiday card tucked in there! This would make an awesome gift for a special piano teacher, music teacher, or special someone who loves music!

 

Thanks for stopping by my blog today- I do love to hear from you! If you scroll to the bottom you can click “Leave a response” and I will respond!
Have a great day!

UPDATE ON ALASKA:

I’m so very thankful for all who have been helping me with my quest, my mission, my GOAL of earning my first HUGE Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip- to Alaska! I am about $2000 away in my own sales, and when one of my wonderful downline promotes to Bronze Elite (she is about $300 away from her promotion- which will then give me 7,500 flex points towards this trip).  I am so very hopeful that both of these situations occur this month, before time runs out. If you would like to help- please let me know. Thanks!

We Create Blog Hop September!

Hi Friends!  Did you just hop on over from the amazing Jeanna’s blog?? I just adore her work! Happy September 1st! I do NOT know where the summer went, it just flew by, didn’t it? I’m hoping the weathermen are right that we are going to have a warm September and October! Did you know that TODAY is the first day of the new 2017 Holiday Catalog, and OMG- it is just fabulous! Here is a link to the catalog online (just click the photo of the catalog below) and/or if you need a catalog and don’t already have a demonstrator, then message me your address and I’ll be happy to mail you one!

 

This is a monthly blog hop of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who create one project and then “Step it up” to show you how some slight changes in product and placement can make a big difference! Sometimes I do this with my clubs and classes- it is a terrific way to showcase new embellishments and products!

 

 

My cards today are made with the new gorgeous bundle called “Snowflake Sentiments” (item #146053 for clear mount; or item #146052 for wood mount, found on page 35 of the Holiday Catalog). The sentiments are so sweet, on the inside I stamped the greeting: “Wishing you a season of joy, a season of cheer, but most of all- a wonderful year”. (I forgot to take a picture).  The dies are amazing, and love how the the little holes pop out of the snowflake outline die. So sweet.

 

 

For my second card, the “stepped up version” I used the silver foil paper to cut the intricate snowflakes out. I love how sparkly this card is, so fun to make!

 

What do you think? Are you eager to get creating some Holiday cards?
