easter framed art

spring framed art

I have a couple openings in my two classes this Sunday March 23rd:
From 1-3 pm is my Easter Framed Art Class which will include the 6 squares shown in the Easter Framed photo above.
Also, you will make 1 Easter Card and 1 Easter Treat Holder (these are not pictured)
This class is $15 or it will be discounted as follows: class only $5 if you place a $25 order with me that day, or
Even better- the class is free with a $50 order with me that day (you would also earn a free Sale-a-bration item too!)

Then from 4-6 pm is the Spring Framed Class which will include 9 squares and a Spring Card (not pictured)
This class is also $15 or it will be discounted as follows: class only $5 if you place a $25 order with me that day, or
Even better- the class is free with a $50 order with me that day (you would also earn a free Sale-a-bration item too!)

*Now here’s the great part- if you sign up for both classes, discount of $25 class fee or only $20 class fee for both with a $25 order
Or if you place a $50 order, get both classes for only $10 and if you place a $100 order, both classes are free and you get 2 Sale-a-bration items
If you place a $100 order with me that day, not only do you get both classes free, and 2 Sale-a-bration items, but you’ll also get a $10 gift card from me as my thanks!

Space is limited to 8 people per event.

I will have snacks and beverages.
If you are signing up for both classes, of course you can “stay” in between and have some snacks, or get started early on the next project.

Please respond by 5 pm Thursday 3/20 if you are interested so I can plan/prep accordingly.

If you are interested in placing an order, head over to my online store at: http://LynnStreifert.Stampinup.net

when you are shopping, type in this hostess code: GPQC3CWG

This hostess code will link you to me, my name will pop up as the hostess. Every month, if there are enough qualifying orders from customers ($150 or more in orders), then I pull a winner of hostess benefits and/or other prizes. Sometimes the orders are smaller and I may choose to select a winner of a gift certificate with me, off any of my classes or events.

Since this is the last month of Sale-a-bration, it is a good time to put in at least a $50 order, as you can pick a free item from Sale-a-bration. (I have a link to the sale-a-bration flyer over on the side bar of this blog).

Now is the perfect time to plan your spring cards, home decor, Easter projects and don’t forget Mother’s Day is around the corner. These items would work perfectly in any of your papercrafting!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and please let me know if you ever have any questions! I’m here to help you!

Have a wonderful Day, and thanks for stopping by to read my blog!

Circles Galore- Big Shot Dies 25% off and New Sweetie Pie Stamps!

Hi there friends,

Wow, do we have some amazing new deals for you this week! Now is the time to order some great tools for your Big Shot! These items are marked down 25% and are all very popular and trendy right now.

weekly deal

AND  how exciting is this new release of an adorable stamp set called Sweetie Pie:

sweetie pie

The artist of this set of stamps is an employee at Stampin’ Up! Her name is Cindy Bowden and she fashioned this new line after her love of Japanese  anime (especially Hayao Miyazaki’s work). Perhaps that love of cuteness (Asian-style) shows. In Japan they call it “kawaii.”   Kawaii (???? [kaw?ai?i], “lovable”, “cute”, or “adorable”) is the quality of cuteness in the context of Japanese culture. (Wikipedia)

I don’t know about you, but this amazing duo is going on my next order. You will have fun coloring the stamped images with Stampin’ Write Markers. Mix and match the images and sentiments. You will especially love playing with the frames! And remember: Classic Stampin’ Pads work best with photopolymer. 😉

And here is some more inspiration, from the creator/artist herself:

Retro Fresh Designer Journaling Tags

Well hello there friends! I sure have missed blogging and sharing Stampin’ Up! with all of you wonderful readers! Last weekend was a fun Girl Scout weekend- we took our troop to the Boston Museum of Science for an overnight trip. What an awesome program and great time we all had. I have been going non-stop ever since with functions/meetings every night… there just aren’t enough hours in the day.

I wanted to share something with you that you might not have noticed in the new Occasions mini catalog, our awesome Retro Fresh Designer Journaling Tags, look at how versatile they are:

retro-fresh-2617

 

I won a pack of these journaling cards at our January Inketts meeting and loved these ideas from the wonderful concept artists at Stampin’ Up! Here are a few projects to give you some ideas for all that you can do with these awesome cards! Thanks Arika B. for your inspiration!

retro-fresh-2618

 

For this birthday card just cut out the happy birthday from the 3″ x 4″ card. For the card base you add a watercolor wash to the background and some splattering. This is so simple and quick to make and I love how it turned out. QUICK TIP: Did you know that the Shimmery White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock is perfect for watercoloring? Going on my next order, let me know if you want some too.

retro-fresh-2619

 

 

Look at this fun confetti pocket on this card using a Window Sheet and the Retro Fresh This and That Designer Washi Tape. I love that washi tape! (Still using mine from Diva Day).

For the confetti use our awesome Fringe Scissors to cut the cardstock horizontally and vertically. It is such a quick way to get a ton of confetti. I’m just sorry to say that the fringe scissors are on backorder until the end of the month. Drats.

retro-fresh-2620

 

 

 

For this congratulations gift bag, just cut the 3″ x 3″ card using the Circles Collection Framelits Dies and add some flags to the bottom using Crushed Curry Cardstock. Then run a stripe of washi tape along the top of the bag. Simple as that . . . so quick and easy!

 

 

retro fresh 9999

Retro Fresh Designer Journaling Tags  item # 133526  Price: $4.95

Printed tags in a variety of sizes allow you to quickly and easily scrapbook your memories. Also great for traditional scrapbooking or on cards. Acid free, lignin free.

  • 32 heavy-weight, printed, double-sided tags, 1 ea. of 32 designs
  • Die-cut

St. Patrick’s Day Fun!

The concept artists at Stampin’ Up! are a talented bunch, wish I had thought of all these fun kids crafts!! Thought that you might enjoy seeing Cindy B.’s creations from our Stampin’ Up! blog… these crafts are so easy, if you have our heart punches and a few other supplies. Let me know if you need any of these items!

st-patrick6EBE3430A40B05D3E0BEAA40

st-patrick's-day2

Make rainbows using the Big Shot and Circles Collection Framelits Dies. Create the pot using the Word Window and 3/4″ Circle Punches.

st-patrick's-day3

st-patrick's-day4

st-patrick's-day5

Don’t you love the new Banner Framelits Dies and the Mini Metallic Clothespins? The Happy St. Patrick’s Day sign was designed using MDS -my digital studio software, the download is called “Luck O’ the Irish”. It is then adhered to Champagne Glimmer Paper.

st-patrick's-day6

To make the leprechaun trap: adhere Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (Gumball Green chevron) to an empty oatmeal box. Cut a border using the Big Shot, Large Scallop Edgelits Dies, and Gold Foil Paper. Cut the top using the Big Shot, Circle Collection Framelits Dies, and Gold Foil Paper. Use Gold Foil Paper, Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Gold Baker’s Twine, the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, and MDS to make the sign. (Use a hot glue and straws to assemble the “wee” ladder.) And if you love those pom-poms—get them for free with the Heartfelt Banner Kit when you spend $50.00 through March 31. (because it’s Sale-A-Bration time!)

st-patrick's-day7

st-patrick's-day8

Make “leprechaun footprints” using Gumball Green ink and the Baby Prints Stamp Set.

st-patrick's-day9

Basic Rhinestone Jewels add a bit of bling to our four-leaf clovers. For even more sparkle and shine, we tied the package with Gold Sequin Trim

st-patrick's-day10

I think these crafts would be perfect for the classroom, the office, or your own home St. Patrick’s Day display. I am going to try to whip some of these up for my hutch. Will post pictures when I make them.

Thanks for stopping by my blog- hope you enjoyed this share today.

3-D Projects For My Team

image

Once a month I invite my active downline to my home for some dinner and night of stamping (well, we’ve evolved to having dinner because its just so much fun!) Jamie, Wendy, Tina, and Amye all brought some yummy food- chili, cornbread, fruit/veggies, chips and delicious bundt cake! (Wish I took a picture!)

Last night we did NOT stamp but instead played with products from the new Occasions Catalog to make some fun 3-D projects.

image

Here are the girls hard at work twirling their card stock to make little roses and a small nose gay for their little vase (really a grated cheese shaker from The Dollar Tree). I have to admit that I love making these little flowers. I watched You Tube videos by both Janet Wakeland and Patty Bennett for some tips and tricks. I used the coordination card stock that came in my big grab bag box back in November after Book-a-thon. The floral wire was also from the Dollar Tree Store.

image

Here is my little flower bouquet… I will be adding to it, because one of my team had an excellent idea- to add little stems (I quickly whipped off some gumball green stems on the big shot… But I didn’t take any photos of them completed, darn. I will post after I spruce mine up.

image

Another case from Janet was this little salt shaker as a mini vase… I used the Retro Fresh DSP here. Hard to believe the Spiral Flower die is only $17.95 it is a real bargain. A hot glue gun is a must for assembling these little beauties.

Amye had brainstormed an idea to use the mini coffee cups as egg holders for Easter. I found the cute punch art bunny on an old blog post by Mary Fish. Of course the new fringe scissors are the real star here, but sadly they are on back order right now, drats.

image

Here’s a side view:
image

Finally I gave the girls the MDS print out “Happy St Patrick’s Day” to put in their 8×10 frames. This is a new digital download for MDS called Luck O’ the Irish. This download is chuck full of great pieces for any St Patricks celebration!

image

Would you like to have fun with us next month? Just ask me how you can sign up, it’s easy (10 minutes), and we have a real special on our starter kit right now only $99 for over $150 in new products plus a case of catalogs and business supplies. It’s a great time to join! We would love to welcome you to the Lynnzcrafters group!

Spring Floral Wreath Class

wreath

Good morning Stamping Friends!

Hope you all had a nice weekend! Have you been watching any of the Olympics? I have to say I love to have it on while I’m up in my craft room prepping for all my classes and events. What’s your favorite Olympic sport? I have always been a big fan of the figure skating… it’s so elegant. The skiing and snowboarding events scare the pants off me, to be honest. I’m surprised more of the athletes aren’t injured. I’m loving the variety of commercials that show the athletes as children and as tributes to their parents, those really get to me.

Well I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for spring to arrive. I was talking to some of my fellow demonstrators recently and we realized that Stampin’ Up!’s kits in the new 2014 Occasions Catalog are really amazing. This wreath is really stunning, the picture doesn’t do it justice. I decided to offer a class and am taking registrations and RSVP’s now until February 22nd. I have planned this Spring Wreath class for Sunday March 9th from 1-3:30 pm. It is a $20 class fee payable in advance as I need to order all of these Burlap and Blossom kits. The class fee covers the cost of the wreath kit, shipping/handling and tax.

In addition to the wreath, you will also make a card with a burlap and floral mini wreath similar to this one made by my friend Marie (and fellow demo) *you can customize this card with a variety of greetings (I always let you pick what sentiment you need on your cards). I’ll have some snacks and beverages here. So what do you think? If Sunday afternoon is not good for you, but you want to make the wreath with my and some friends, we can set up another day/time. If I have a huge response to this date/time, I might look for another space. Right now I already have 4 signed up. Either comment here, call or email me to sign up for this class.

wreath marie2

You will need to bring with you to this class a few things to make your life easier: scissors, bone folder, silicone mat, green glue, glue dots, sticky strip (or score tape), and a hot glue gun (if you have it).

Well happy Monday everyone, I hope you have a great day!
