Stamping Bingo!

Hi friends, we had such an awesome bingo party the other day and the theme was 80s! Look at these cool props, I had the winners take a picture with their prize and their favorite prop. And here are the lineup of all the prizes, everything is from the brand new catalog plus some stamping essentials. I love to mix it up and have a variety of bundles for these wonderful prizes,

My niece Claire came over to help me do all the big shot pieces, stuff the envelopes, make the goody bags, and assemble these cute neon bracelets for everyone.

I love some of the outfits people wore, they always get an extra raffle ticket for the final drawing if they stick to the theme in their outfit and or snack. It is always one of the highlights of my week when I know I’m going to have bingo.

I was pretty tickled pink that I was able to wear my 80s outfit that I purchased for our Stampin Up Center stage event in April. Neon leg warmers, fishnet stockings, earrings, bracelets, a little cross between the material girl/Madonna and flash dance.

I love having a theme for my monthly bingo event the next one is Fall Fest!

My monthly stamping bingo is a very popular event and I typically don’t even have a chance to advertise as it fills up from the group of women who attend, they almost always fill up for the next month. But luckily in order to accommodate everyone who would like to play bingo, I rented my church hall for the next one which is Friday night September 21. This registration is open until Tuesday, September 11. I had quite a few people who said they were interested on our Facebook group I’ll be contacting them to see if they are attending or not. So I still have seats contact me if you’d like more info!

Stamping bingo is a super fun night out! Hope you can join us!

I totally don’t know what happened to this blog post I thought I had scheduled it to go off but it never posted. I am going to chalk this up to technological error.

Thanks so much for reading this blog!

Team Swaps!

Hi everyone, I wanted to show off all the wonderful swaps from our team get together on Thursday night. What a talented group of ladies, don’t you agree?

For my card I used the new dandelion wishes stamp set.

Here’s a tip if you want to re-create this card.

I used the rectangle framelit from the barn door set to create a window opening to brayer on the color.

I used some washi tape to adhere it down on my grid paper.

I used black embossing powder and versamark ink to create the dandelions and the greeting. I used our new balmy blue ink pad for the brayer and card stock.

This lovely swap card was made by the amazing Lisa Mackey!

It’s no surprise that Kara Pagerie used the new bunny bundle, how cute and colorful? Love it.

How fun and vintage is this version of dandelion wishes? Made by the wonderful Laurie Kownack.

Love Kathy Sim’s sweet card using Lilypad Lake bundle!

Isn’t this Daisy Delight card featuring the new rich razzleberry velvet trim stunning? Kudos goes to Tiffany Williams-Hart for this beauty.

And this lovely card was one of our Make & Takes by our fabulous hostess Amye Speirs.

And I brought the new Notes of Kindness Kit, such a fun and easy kit. You can make 5 each of 4 designs.

Today is the last day to enter my Comment Contest. Scroll below to leave me a reply. Be sure to include #Lynnzcrafters to be entered to win. One lucky person will be selected tomorrow-July 1st.

Thanks for stopping by! Stay cool in this heat!

Bingo Fun and Give-Away!

Hi everyone, how are you? I was teased last night at my monthly bingo night that I never post the pictures of this fun event. So I wanted to create a post for you to show you the projects that we made, and the prizes that were given away. Stampin’ bingo is a super fun event!

There is a lot of time, preparation, and set up that goes into my monthly bingo event. In order to fit 14 ladies comfortably I put one table in my living room and the rest fit at my dining room table. I sit in the archway between the two rooms as I call out the bingo.

My customers really enjoy this fun night out, and typically fill up the next month’s Bingo as I give them first dibs on the seats for the next month.

Here are the prizes that I purchased with their $20 registration fee that is paid in advance:

There are seven bundles valued between $30 – $40 sometimes one is even a little bit above that. We play six games of bingo and the winner of each round picks one of the prizes. Then the seventh bundle is for the raffle tickets, they earn a raffle ticket for attending, bringing a snack/beverage to share, placing an order with me that night, booking their own party/class, and if there is a bingo tie, the person who did not win the bingo/off as well as anyone who wins another game of bingo then they receive extra raffle tickets. Last night we had three games were there were ties so we had to have a playoff/bingo off. And we also had two duplicate winners. Hope that makes sense.

Here are the make and take projects that we did last night. I was so excited to show them these adorable little copper tea tins in the whole teatime suite.

The three little note cards also included the extra DSP, so everyone got six swatches of this beautiful paper. It may be hard to see but I also use the copper stickers and the colorful paper stickers from the memories and more collection. I also included three organic green tea bags. This is a perfect little gift or inspiration piece for your craft room.

One of the cards I featured was a slight case from one of our make and takes at Onstage. I wanted to feature the stained glass Vellum and the new blends. Unfortunately the new colors are not available yet but I was lucky to get pineapple punch and lovely lipstick Onstage. I took pictures of the ladies’ cards when they were finished, as everyone used different color schemes and there were two different square patterns in the pack … and as you can see no two cards are alike. Great job everyone!

Here are the winners of the six games of bingo. And the last bundle was drawn at the end of the night and this artistic expressions bundle is going out to Susan B. (Nancy said she is going to be in touch with you about getting this to you so you will have your prize.)

I forgot to take pictures of the food table, but once again these ladies did an amazing job of bringing some yummy snacks, a sign up in advance so that we don’t have duplicates. We had a veggie tray, fresh fruit, hummus and pita, cookies, delicious veggie pizza, amazing lemon blueberry cake, nuts, chips and salsa, chips and dip, popcorn, cheese and crackers, beer and wine. It was a smorgasbord.

I am so very thankful that these ladies love my monthly bingo event, thank you so much for your support!

Don’t forget that I am doing a comment contest, for everyone who leave me a comment on one of my blog post this month will be entered in a drawing to win this great little bundle of goodies. The gold ribbon and the metallic doilies are now retired. But the mini notecards are a new size in our catalog that you will enjoy. Just leave me a comment and be sure to include the hashtag #lynnzcrafters

Thank you so much for reading this post today I hope you have a wonderful day!

WCBH6 Masculine Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone and welcome to our June edition of the We Create Blog Hop, a monthly blog hop featuring all Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who love to share their handmade creations with all of you! If you just came from Jeanna’s site- thanks for popping by! Isn’t her work amazing??!!

Our theme this month is Masculine- and I’m sure you will find we have a wide variety of cards and projects just perfect for the guys in your life. My stamp set that I choose for our hop is a brand new one, we received it as a free gift for attending OnStage back in April and I just love playing with it. It’s called Animal Outings.  I decided to pair this month’s theme with a new fancy fold card I recently learned how to make, called “The Impossible Card” (because to the naked eye, it’s impossible to figure out how the center piece of card stock was created).

Today is the day our new 2018–19 Annual Catalog goes live, click the picture above and it will take you to the online version. (ordering online will be available at noon Mountain time, that is 2 PM here on the East Coast)

Ready to learn how to make this impossible card? Start with a piece of card stock that is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (here I used crumb cake):

Do you see on the photo above how it looks like a goal post?

you can make a small pencil mark 1/2″ from each end, and scored down 2 1/8″.

then from the 2 3/4″ mark on bottom length, score up to the 2 1/8″ mark. I think the photo helps more than anything.

then cut your three vertical lines (the goal post base and 2 ends) as shown above.

As you can see, when you cut on the score lines, the center panel will pop up. see photo above.

So here’s how it becomes an “impossible card”, just flip one of the side panels backwards! Tada! See that? Not so hard at all, really it’s a simple card that you can make look amazing with whatever stamps or embellishments you want to add.

Next is to cut some decorative designer series paper panels to spruce up the card. I went with something that was from the Share What You Love suite- this is the back of the blue floral paper.

I decided to trace my opening, and then trim down an 1/8″ so it becomes a perfect top layer on my two side panels.

The black strip is a stabilizer for the card, it is 1″ x 5 1/2″ long.

I decided to use the blends to color my giraffe and leaves and frog- this card would be so cute for a variety of occasions. the corner sentiment was from a stamp set I won during Prize Patrol at OnStage in April. Was happy to use it here.

Punched out some leaves in garden green to make it look like the jungle and added another piece in very vanilla over the top so I could stamp a name or personalized greeting.

This piece measure 3/4″ x 5 1/4″

Assemble and voila! What do you think of my Impossible Card?? I would love to hear your comments, scroll down below to see what my June Comment Contest Giveaway will be!

We Create Feminine Blog Hop WCBH5

Share What You Love

One of the best things about going to OnStage last month was getting to play with new product and also getting to order this gorgeous new suite of products that I am featuring today. (There are three bundles that go on sale today, May 1 and the bundle prices will last until May 31. Scroll all the way to the end of this post to see your options.)

This was a card we made as one of our 4 Make-and-Takes at OnStage, aren’t you thrilled about Mint Macaron?? Me too! Do you see that amazing shine on our new pearlized doilies? These are simply stunning!! One side is white so you could sponge it or color it and the other has a sweet shimmery pearl finish! I love these so much! I know you will too! and you are also going to love the new share what you love artisan pearls- they are dreamy in five different colors. You can hardly see but there’s also a strip of our new quarter inch rich razzleberry velvet ribbon, just put a little glue on this and stick it down and it just adds a nice touch. And let me talk about this designer series paper, you are not going to believe this but you get four sheets each of 6 double sided designs for a total of 24 pieces of 12″ x 12″ DSP, 4 of the designs have a pearlized finish and is just gorgeous.

Next up-This card features one of our brand new In Colors- Grapefruit Grove! I paired it with two returning colors so saffron and old olive. And look at the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder! (at bingo the other night we used this texture folder on the envelopes and it is gorgeous!) Okay, yes I’m addicted to the pearlized doilies and the artisan pearls I had to use them again.

Last but not least is this sweet little card I came up with for our bingo night last week. You absolutely cannot go wrong with the oval from the stitched framelits and how amazing does that rich razzleberry look as the border punched out with the decorative ribbon border punch? I know right! And more of this stunning DSP specialty paper, you have to add this to your first order if you don’t get the bundle it will make so many nice cards, scrapbook pages, gift bags, you name it!

Here’s an awesome video by Stampin’ Up! to introduce this whole suite:
