Amazing Team Lynnzcrafters Event!

Have you ever had a vision and wondered how it would “ever” work? Well, let me tell you- don’t second guess yourself, step out of your comfort zone, and Go For It!

A few weeks ago Stampin’ Up!’s Northeast Demonstrator Development Manager (DDM), Jessica Werner, posted on our Facebook group that she was looking to attend some stamping events in the Northeast part of the US. I immediately thought of inviting her to my next team meeting, but it was so close to Easter that she had to decline. Then, I spoke to her about another idea I had when we were together at OnStage last month, and she loved the idea of coming to join me at my May team meeting!! I decided I wanted to focus on a “New Catalog Launch” with displays, Make and takes, stamping projects, food, fun, and fellowship to help those who were unable to go to OnStage and help them prepare to launch the new catalog to their customers.

One thing I quickly realized, was there was no way I could pull this off on my own! Now, I have some incredibly talented and generous ladies on my team, but I wasn’t sure how to go about asking for their help… I shouldn’t have worried at all, for they truly stepped up in a HUGE way! You’ll see photos of their displays, Make and Takes, and an adorable door prize, which they all generously volunteered to help me with! Am I the luckiest girl in the world, or what? I mean, seriously- I didn’t have to twist anyone’s arm, beg or cry- they just offered! Bless you all, from the bottom of my heart! Lisa, Amye, Tiffany, Kathy, Laurie, MaryBeth and Susan- your displays, Make and Takes, and daisy treat pouch were all a huge hit and I’m so very thankful for your generosity and talents! You supported me in my vision, and I will forever be grateful for your time, efforts and skills! You inspired everyone in the room with your beautiful creations!

 

Amye Speirs (who also designed and organized the cute team shirts we’re wearing!)

 

I didn’t even tell them I’d be calling them up to the stage, just a small token of my appreciation in those cute bird bags. Thank you!!

Lisa Mackey, explaining her inspiration for the Come Sail Away display she created.

 

So speaking of the stage, it was all set up for the preschool graduation ceremony the next morning, and it was perfect for our use as well- a great vantage point up there!

Kathy Sims, my dear friend who created the Bird Ballad display, and was my right arm all night.

Tiffany Williams-Hart, who designed an amazing stamping project and prepared so everyone could make a beautiful card.

 

Laurie Kownack, broken foot and all, volunteered at the last minute to help me with one more display using the Magnolia Suite.

 

MaryBeth Pellerin who made the beautiful In Color Display.

 

Susan Williams Germain volunteered to make everyone an adorable daisy punched caramel chocolate treat! thanks Sue!

 

 

Team Lynnzcrafters with Jessica Werner

20 of my downline members attended this event, thank you ladies for attending and added thanks for those who helped bring snacks, beverages, ice, set up, registration, clean up, and Prize Patrol!

I’m so grateful for each of you!

 

 

These stamping friends are local and get together monthly as the Upstate Stampers Group. I had planned to have 30 stampers at this event, because that is how many I have on my team, but when spots opened up, I reached out to be sure we filled the room for Jessica’s long trip to visit us from Rhode Island.  I’m so thrilled that you were all able to attend! Thanks friends for coming to this event, and to those who brought treats, thank you!

 

Wendy volunteered to run the registration table, I charged $5 per person to cover the cost of the Prize Patrol items.

 

The room set up- food and beverages were at the back of the room. Everyone was mingling and snacking before we started.

 

These next few pictures show how the tables were set up- I followed my set up as I do for bingo- putting 6 people at each of 5 long tables. I asked 1 person to take the lead at each table to help rotate the stamping supplies in a clockwise rotation, cleaning off the stamps and help everyone complete the project at the their table. (It worked out well that everyone who prepared a Make and Take did all the big shot work in advance).

 It just filled my heart to overflowing to have all these special ladies all together for this wonderful event.

Now, for this last section- I wanted to show you the amazing displays that my friends came up with, I know you are going to love all this inspiration!

Last but not least I had made a dozen cards to feature the Everything is Rosy special for May. I wanted to display these cards for my demo friends.

Well I think that is all for now, I will do another post with pictures of the five Make & Takes and swaps. I think I’ll save that for this weekend and will be back to share more.

I receive so much positive feedback about this event that I am thinking of doing another demonstrator only event to kick off either the Holiday catalog or the next Occasions catalog. I’m not really sure but I will keep you posted.

Thank you so much for reading this blog and just a reminder there are only a few days left to get the Everything is Rosy Product Medley.

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!

FMS 160- With Sympathy

I don’t know about you, but I often find it difficult to make sympathy cards when I need them… so I decided to make some extras up while I was making one that I needed this week. I was trying a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, I always love their clean and simple look. Here’s their blog, if you want to see their awesome samples:

 

Freshly Made Sketches

 

This week’s sketch is a very simple one, but so many possibilities:

 

FMS Final 160-001

 

Here is my interpretation of their sketch using the awesome Color Me Autumn DSP, For All Things stamp set, Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, Blackberry Bliss and Sahara Sand ink pads, word window punch, modern label punch,  2 1/2″ circle punch, big shot, banner framelits, perfect polka dots TIEF, and Fancy Fan TIEF.

Have a great day!

Mojo Monday 368 – Thank You Card

Hi Friends,

I finally had some time to work on some custom card orders. A friend is a real estate agent and she orders all her cards from me, aren’t I lucky?!!

Well I wanted this batch to be different from the last ones I made, so I went to the recent Mojo Monday sketch for inspiration.

Here is the link to the sketch:
