Oh Happy Day!!!

cattyMany of us Stampin’ Up! Fans have been eagerly awaiting this day- June 2nd- the day the new catalog launches and the old 2014-15 Annual Catalog and 2015 Occasions Catalog are all available at the same time! This is the LAST day to get retiring items, but you can mix your order with new as well.

My favorite set in the new catalog is The Sprinkles of Life in fact- in my ten years of using Stampin’ Up! products, I can say it is truly my ALL time favorite Ronald McDonald House Charities® stamp set.  Ronald McDonald House Charities® keeps families together while children are receiving medical treatment far from home. When you purchase the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set, Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to the RMHC. To date Stampin’ Up! has donated over $1,000,000. to the RHMC. If you are wondering where to find it in the new catalog- it is on the inside back cover- the very last item in the catalog.

This set has a awesome coordinating, Tree Builder Punch, to cut down on fussy cutting. There is so much you can do with this stamp set and punch.

I have been having a lot of fun playing with this stamp set for the past few weeks, we were able to pre-order this last month. I am doing a Make and Take tomorrow night at a demonstrator get-together at my upline’s house, and I made my swaps and 3 other samples to showcase the versatility of this stamp and punch! Let me know what you think:

This first card is going to be our Make-and-Take.

Swaps- I wanted chocolate cupcakes, but they just didn’t look “done” to me… so I started playing.

Crystal Effects to the rescue- what do you think of this wet frosting look?

And the little cherry on top is actually from the cupcake builder punch.

This is a card I made to showcase the clouds and raindrops (case from Pinterest)

Tuesday Updates

Hi there Stamping Friends!

Have you missed me? Sorry I haven’t been blogging that much, since my diabetes crisis last month I am taking time to exercise and eat healthy everyday… boy does that take much more time than I thought. I was attempting to walk in the woods near me, but too buggy/muddy and I didn’t want to ruin my new sneakers. I joined Planet Fitness and enjoy going there, but sometimes I just want to think and not be surrounded by all that noise. This is a new favorite walking spot- outdoor track at a local high school, love it!

Thanks for all your good wishes- this new life style, combined with Plexus nutritional products, have really helped me more than I thought possible. (let me know if you want to know more about Plexus).

Onto some timely news about Stampin’ Up!:

We are in our final week of the 2014-15 Annual Catalog and final week of the 2015 Occasions Catalog… time sure does fly, doesn’t it? Some people have said they are confused about the dates of the catalogs… Stampin’ Up! is trying something new this year. For one day only- next Tuesday June 2nd- you can order from ALL THREE CATALOGS! This is a big deal in case you are trying to get your last chance retiring items, or want to save some pennies (slight price increase in the new catalog), or you have a big order and want to earn under the old hostess rewards (as of June 3rd, the new rewards take effect). So this is a busy transition day, and the first chance you will have to order from the new 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.

(The Large Kraft Grid Journals are awesome and if you buy them now, you can use them for party favors, or holiday gifts! they are NOT carrying over to the new catalog, so get them while they last!)

 

Also- I want to remind you of the half off deal for new Paper Pumpkin subscribers! That’s right, subscribe by June 10th (midnight Mountain time) and you will only pay $10 for June and July’s awesome craft kits in the mail! I seriously LOVE Paper Pumpkin kits- absolutely everything you need for a fun creative outlet is included (well, except scissors, you have a pair of those, right?) These kits are a hit with children, people who have limited space, seniors, and those just starting with card making/papercrafting. Oh, and people who are TOO BUSY to craft, these kits are perfect- open, stamp, assemble and you have a card or project all ready to go! (Less time than driving to the Hallmark Store for sure!) Plus- you can use the stamps over and over- they come with a clear block and you can decorate other cards or envelopes or make your own stationary! The possibilities are endless!

The May Kit is so awesome- 6 fun birthday cards and 6 gift bags!! I hope this will be available as a refill kit!

Have a favorite kit? Ask me how to get a refill- I’m happy to help you!)

bogo sale

Last but not least- I want to remind you of our HUGE BOGO SALE- We are up to 7 members of my team selling our retired Stampin’ Up! and other Craft Supplies to YOU! The way our BOGO works may be different from others- here’s how we do it: Come to the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church (816 Route 50, Burnt Hills, NY 12027 across from Gil’s Garage) on Saturday June 6th from 9:30 am to 1 pm. You will shop around the room from all of our tables full of retired goodies. Go to the check out table, we will give you the total of “FREE” NEW catalog products you get to pick out- you will go to the catalog table and will get to pick out anything you want equal to what you just picked out of the retirement sale- that’s truly a Buy One Get One Free deal that’s too good to pass up!! Then we add tax and shipping to the total of new products you picked out, and you pay us- cash customers will get to pick out from a free box (while supplies last), we also accept local checks, and credit cards. You can have your items shipped directly to you for an extra $6.95 (or 10%, depending on your total). You take home the retired goodies, and we will order and deliver the new items once they come in (around June 16-19th depending on UPS shipping time from Utah). We are so excited and hope you are too!!

Creative Inkling Blog Hop- Favorite Retiring Stamp Set

creative hop

 

Hi There Stamping Friends,

Our blog hop theme this month is “Favorite Retiring Stamp Set”… well, I couldn’t pick just one to show you here today, in fact since I planned our stamp camp last Saturday around this very topic, I thought I would share all 5 of our cards. We called it “Last Chance Stamp Camp” and had a wonderful turnout of stamping friends!

Here are the cards that we made:

First up was a card I designed to use for my own Father’s Day card this year:

retired5

This card features the retiring stamp set “Walk in the Wild” and I paired it with the retiring modern label punch as well. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

 

Next card we featured was a card appropriate for a graduation or we had an alternative card for a simple congratulations:

retired9

 

 

retired7

The “Way to Go” stamp is in the set called Bravo, and it is not retiring (the Bravo set is carrying over to the next catalog). The class of 2015 is retiring, last chance to get it is June 2nd!

 

retired4

 

Sadly, Petal Potpourri is also retiring, June 2nd will be your last chance to get this gorgeous set! It has a coordinating punch called “Flower Medallion Punch” (the punch is returning in the new catalog because it coordinates with one of the flowers in the stamp set “Crazy for You” which is also carrying over.) The beautiful Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper has been one of my favorites, and I’m using it for my Stamp-and-Sip event on May 29th (I have only 2 spots left).

 

This card is the one I used to advertise the event, and I think everyone said it was one of their favorites:

 

retired6

 

This was a card I was inspired by Pinterest, but I couldn’t find the original creator… The set “By the Seashore” is retiring and I realized I had never used this set in a class at all. I also used Wetlands (the gulls) and Sassy Salutations (these two sets are continuing into the next catalog). No one complained about fussy cutting all the seashells out. fun, fun!

Last but not least, I also realized I had never featured in a class a stamp set that was part of a bundle called “Adventure Awaits” that was paired with the awesome mini stack of designer series paper called Adventure Bound. The stamps spoke to me, and I had to have them, and originally planned to use them for Father’s Day cards. This card was a case (Copy and Share Everything) by Mary Fish. I had two unopened packs of the Maritime designer series paper. ** Bonus- this DSP is on sale until Monday 5/25 in our “Weekly Deals”… get it for 25% off retail price! Awesome-sauce!!

 

 

 

 

retired3

So this was the full line up, I also had my downline make these cards at our team get together last week. I find it helps if they’ve made the cards, and then they can pick the card table they want to run at Stamp Camp…. and I’m so blessed that four of my downline were able to come and help run a table at the stamp camp, (shout out to Judy, Sharon, Audrey and Laurie)! Many thanks ladies!!

 

retired1

 

So if you’re interested in purchasing any of these retired items, they retire on June 2nd, but I wouldn’t wait to the last day… if I were you 😉

Also, don’t forget to mark your calendars for our next BOGO sale- Saturday June 6th in Burnt Hills, NY, hope you can make it!

Last Chance Stamp Camp! (and our next BOGO)

Hi there Stamping Friends!

Just a quick post to let you know we are furiously planning two more big events for you- and please help us spread the word to all your friends and family, the more the merrier!

First up: Saturday May 16th from 9:30 am to Noon (we have the room until 1 pm, but plan to be there by 11 am at the latest so you have time to make your five cards) at the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church we are having a Last Chance Stamp Camp! This event will feature 5 cards with stamp sets that are retiring (all new cards of course- never a repeat with us!) Here’s our plan for the 5 cards:

  • Congratulations (appropriate for Graduation or just “Good job” to someone)
  • Father’s Day (or appropriate for a male birthday/thinking of you/thank you)
  • 3 All Occasion Cards that you can customize with any sentiments/greetings you’d like!

cards last chance

The early bird deadline for $10 registration was supposed to be today, but I’m feeling generous and will extend that to Monday May 4th, then if you register between May 5-9th, and if there is still space available- then registration fee is $15 per person. (Registration means signing up and paying).

*Due to the vigorous amount of time to cut, score, and bundle all the “parts” to make these cards, we need to adhere to the deadline. Thanks for understanding!!

 

Next up: Lynnzcrafters Team BOGO Sale/New Catalog Kick Off Party: Saturday June 6th from 9 am to 1 pm  at the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church  My team and I are happy to be bringing you another fun sale of our retired Stampin’ Up! products (and some other arts and crafts supplies too!)  It will be similar to the sale we did in March… but this time there is no card making station as we’ll have more items for sale so we need the room for sale items! Also, this time for every dollar you spend on our sale items, you will then get to spend on brand new products in the new 2015-16 Annual Catalog (plus shipping and handling). *local delivery or ship to your home for a minimum shipping fee.   Free catalog with minimum purchase that day!

 

Thanks for stopping by today, happy Friday!

I don’t know what I would do without my fabulous team- huge kudos to Amye for prepping and teaching some awesome techniques on two cards (the flower patch and birthday balloon); lots of thanks to Jamie for making a cute treat holder for each attendee (I didn’t take any pictures of that!) and many thanks to Amye, Jamie, Wendy and Sharon for coming to help for the afternoon, it made it so nice and relaxing for all the stampers. You guys are the best!! Ready to do it again on May 16th? (Mark your calendars- we’re doing a morning class more news to come soon!)

New Clearance Rack items and Retired List

header_retired2015_email_April2115_ENG-1

 

Hi Friends- did you have a chance to mark up your catalog yet? I haven’t finished either, but wow- there are dozens of great stamps that are retiring that are some favorites of mine. Although the retired list came out Tuesday and there was a mad rush and lots of computer/server issues, and many in-colors and accessories sold out, there are still lots of stamps and even more items added to the clearance rack!  So while we’re saying goodbye to retiring products from the 2014-2015 annual catalog, before we do, we’re giving everyone an opportunity to order their favorites with discounts up to 50 percent off retail. Retiring products will only be available until June 2, or while supplies last, so now’s a great time to get them before they’re gone!

*Note: Due to high demand for retiring stamps, we’ll keep producing retiring stamps until May 26 (not accessories-accessories are only while supplies last).

Here is the updated list (Stampin’ Up! updates the list every weekday at 4 pm): (the “x” in the last column means that item is sold out)

http://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/lastChance/2015_NA_RetiredList/US_retiredList_ENG.pdf

Head to my online store to see all the new Clearance Rack items, you can really save a lot with these awesome items!

So how do you order? Many ways-

  1. SHOP: http://LynnStreifert.stampinup.net   For those of you who want to jump right on this list and ensure your order goes through, go to my online store and shop, use hostess code SNGCRCUA and all those who shop my online store this month will be entered to win some of the free hostess rewards (I will contact you if you are the winner so you can select your prizes).
  2. CONTACT ME: Email, text, call or private Facebook Message me, and I will do my best to get your items ordered for you as soon as I have a couple orders to put in… (but remember I have a full time job so I’ll be unavailable most of the day today). (*friends, I need to be honest with you- in years past some things have sold out by the time I’ve arrived home at the end of my work day).

Everyone spending at least $50 will receive a FREE tutorial from me and a new hand-stamped (blank) card as my thanks (I will email the tutorial and will snail mail the card to you, so please do NOT click the “no contact” box, or I won’t know it’s your order). Spend $75 or more and get a free tutorial and 5 handmade cards from my “For Sale” bin of handmade demo cards. Spend $100 or more and receive the free tutorial, 5 free cards and pick either a $15 Gift certificate good towards classes or products as my thanks!

Due to high demand for retiring stamps, we’ll keep producing retiring stamps until May 26 (not accessories-accessories are only while supplies last). The lists of retiring products will be updated every business day by 4:00 PM (MT).

Thanks for stopping by today, so excited it’s a nice day for our Spring Fling- will post pictures later or tomorrow.

Have an awesome Saturday!
