Summer Fun with the Creative Circle Design Team!

 

 

Well Hello Friends! Thank you for joining us for our July edition of the Creative Circle Design Team! We wanted to share some Stampin’ Up! Summer Fun for you! I am so excited to see what these talented ladies have come up with this month, how about you? We are a small international group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, and we just love to showcase our newest products and hope to inspire you all!

 

This first card is a special birthday card I made for a friend, now that the daisy punch is back in stock, I wanted to start showing off so you would want to order it for yourself! This is a sweet and simple card making three different colored daisy flowers and using one piece of the new wood crate on the card front.

Next up- a yummy summer drink card! Do you love frappacino’s and other frothy drinks from Starbucks? Me too! I created this card for my recent team get together, the girls loved making this card.

 

Next up is a card I created featuring our new embossing paste! I wanted my team to have a chance to use this awesome new product, we used our silicone mat to add re-inker (Lemon-Lime Twist) and some dazzling delights (aka glitter) for added sparkle. This was card #2 for our team get together. *On a side note- the container appears to be larger- that is on purpose as Stampin’ Up! wanted us to have plenty of room to scoop this stuff out… it also settles somewhat…. also- most  important of all- this stuff dries SUPER FAST, so work quickly and wash off the mask and tools immediately afterwards (or it will harden).

Last, but not least is a card I created to showcase the new “At Home with You” bundle for our team get together. I created this card with a bright basket of summer flowers next to the front door- and can you tell the door opens?

 

It is really a fun new bundle, perfect for any holiday, new home owner, real estate agent, wedding, anniversary, and more!! Are you ready to go visit the talented Kate? She has something very special to share with us today!

 

 

Here’s the Complete Line-up: 

Thanks so very much for taking the time to visit my blog today! I love to read your comments, feel free to scroll down to the bottom where it says “Leave a response” and you can let me know which card you enjoyed the most? thanks!

CCDT New Catalog Favorites!

 

Hello and welcome to our June Creative Circle Design Team Blog Hop!

This month I want to share with you some swap cards I created and mailed out last month to other demonstrators for an “organized swap”. Now that everyone has received their swaps, we are able to show off what we made. Plus I want to share my favorite swap card I received.

 

First up is this beautiful card- featuring new In Colors, stamps, and card stock! Don’t you just love the font from this set? Me too!  I cased this card from my favorite swap card that I received from Jenn. Love the new Lemon-Lime Twist, it’s my favorite new In-Color!

 

This is a card I came up with to feature at my June clubs, I wanted to showcase the daisy delight bundle, but with the punch on backorder I decided to just use the little flowers that are in the stamp set- aren’t they sweet? And the new Tranquil Tide ink and ribbon just make this card pop, don’t you think? The base is Soft Saffron, as I thought the DSP was more muted.

.

 

Living in Upstate NY, I have a true fondness for anything Adirondack, and these new dies to create an Adirondack chair are no exception. This is a card I created for one of the swaps I participated in last month. I made this card in all 5 In Colors using the new Designer Series Paper stack, what do you think? This is Fresh Fig paired with Lemon-Lime Twist. I love this combo, don’t you?

.

 

This is a card I created for a swap, I’m very happy with how this one came out. It is a simple “Z-Fold” card, and features the new Birthday Memories Suite. I fell in love with this bundle, and suite, when I attended OnStage in April. I was lucky to be able to pre-order this and feature it for this swap. It was simple to cut the word “birthday” to fit on two lines. I think this little girl looks so vintage, like the Campbell Soup girl… this card features new Designer Series Paper, dies, and ribbon. *This is one of the Ribbons that I am offering in my 2017 Ribbon Shares- I have a few spots left- let me know if you’re interested. I’m posting the info at the bottom of this post.

.

here is another view for you to see the Z-fold…

Here is another image from the Birthday Memories suite- this card I actually made as a Make-and-Take at OnStage, just love this little fox!

 

 

Last, but not least, is my favorite new Hostess Stamp Set- called Tranquil Tulips. This is a two-step stamp set that is just gorgeous. I also featured on of our new Textured Impressions Embossing Folder- Starburst- to give the bottom layer some texture and interest. What do you think?

 

I would love to hear from you- what card do you like the most? Also- don’t forget tomorrow night, June 2nd is my New Catalog Launch Party and Open House! I have In-Color Bookmarks, a sweet little notecard, a new catalog Survival Kit, snacks, lots of goodies to look at, displays, sign-ups and prizes! Let me know if you plan to attend, I would hate it if I didn’t have enough prepped for you! thanks!!

 Also- Here is my new Customer Rewards Loyalty Program, new for this Catalog Season June 1, 2017-May 31, 2018:

Ribbon Shares are Here!

With the launch of the new 2017-18 Catalog, I have been working on a new Ribbon Share deal for you. It was a little more difficult this year as we have over 50 new ribbons in the new catalog and they are absolutely gorgeous! It was a hard decision to make, but I am finally ready to promote my 2017 Ribbon Shares!

Here are the details of my 2017 Ribbon Share: 

  • $50 per person for each ribbon share, plus shipping (or you can pick up at my house in Glenville, NY).
  • You will receive 2 yards each (consecutive cuts) from 10 new ribbon types, with 34 colors/styles for a grand total of 68 yards of new Ribbon!
  • Payment is due in Full by June 3rd, and will work in groups of 5 people per share (all the ribbons I have selected are in 10 yard rolls, so I need 5 people to make up a “share”). If I don’t have enough to complete a share, I will go in the order that I received payment to fulfill the request.
  • I will order all the ribbons on June 3rd and they should arrive by June 13th if nothing goes on back-order. I will need a few days to cut/wrap and prepare the ribbons for you. My goal is to have it ready by June 17th (so I can bring them with me to the BOGO sale, if all goes well).

Here’s what you will be getting 2 yards each of the following ribbons/colors:

  1. 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in 5 colors: Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, and Tranquil Tide
  2. 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding in 4 colors: Berry Burst, Emerald Envy, Night of Navy, and Peekaboo Peach
  3. 1/4″ Stiched Edge Ribbon in 4 colors: Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, and Rich Razzleberry
  4. 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon in 3 colors: Crumb cake, Soft Sky, and Whisper White
  5. 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon in 3 colors: Calypso Coral, Island Indigo and Lemon-Lime Twist
  6. 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon in 4 colors: Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, and Powder Pink
  7. 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon in 3 colors: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive
  8. 3/8″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in 5 colors: Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum
  9. Mini Sequin Trim in Basic Black
  10. 3/8″ Metallic-Edged Ribbon in Gold and Silver

*I am using hostess benefits to throw in the Basic Black Mini Sequin Trim and the Silver and Gold Metallic-Edged Ribbon as additional ribbons for you.

**If you were to purchase all of these 34 rolls of ribbon yourself, it would be over $300 to purchase these with tax and shipping.

So here’s how to get your Ribbon Share:
  1. Email me that you want to buy a share at Lstreifert@nycap.rr.com
  2. Arrange payment: I accept cash, check and credit card or I can invoice you through PayPal.
  3. I will confirm receipt of payment and will let you know the status of the Ribbon Shares. I need to sell shares in groups of 5.

 

Last but not least- During the month of June, for parties totaling over $350 hosts receive an ADDITIONAL $35!! This is on top of the regular Stampin’ Rewards hosts receive. New catalog AND more free product – that is a win-win. Parties can be online, Facebook, or in-home. Contact me to schedule one today!

Please note that the new 2017-18 Annual Catalog is Live NOW! But Online Ordering will not be available until Noon Mountain Time (that is 2 pm Eastern Time for my local peeps).

Creative Circle Design Team Rock-a-Bye!

Hello and welcome to our May edition of our monthly Creative Circle Design Team’s blog hop! Every month I literally get so excited to see what these amazing ladies have to offer us all. They are all experts with their Silhouette Cameo (electric die-cutter machines) and I am still a novice. I had high hopes for using the machine more, and when I went to use it for this hop, to make an adorable baby cradle from the file our wonderful leader Liz Holloway sent us, I started having computer problems. Luckily I can still blog from my phone and tablet, I will have to get the computer in to the shop for a quick check-up and repair, wish me luck!

So forgive me, I’m going to share with you the projects I featured at my WTG (Way To Go) Day for my Top 4 downline (they accrue points on a quarterly basis for sales, recruiting, anniversary with SU, and for promotions). Unfortunately one of  girls was unable to be here this time, but she will still get her goodies! These are some “sneak peeks” at some new product coming out in our 2017-18 Annual Catalog that launches on June 1st.

Gerber daisies from our local garden center, Hewitt’s, aren’t they pretty? All four are different colors.

These little embroidered Owl totes are from 31 Bags, I saw they were on clearance rack a few weeks ago, so I ordered them for this special day.

Fresh fruit, two homemade (and a little lopsided) quiches, blueberry/peach tart, sparkling juices and other beverages rounded out our menu for breakfast.

Elizabeth, Amye and Sharon were in my top 4 as was Lisa, but she couldn’t attend, we missed you Lisa!

 

A few weeks ago I found these cloth covered jewelry trays at one of the big box craft stores and I just knew they’d come in handy for some special project. Well, once I went to OnStage in Toronto last month, and saw the gorgeous new papers that would launch in the new catalog- I had my idea- a daisy themed WTG Day! The colored pieces are 3″ squares in Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.

 

This box stands by itself, but is lighter than a frame. I plan to make other inserts through the seasons so I can rotate and keep this in my craft room. Don’t you just LOVE the new daisies?? And the new punches?? This piece features 4 new stamp sets! (I received them at OnStage as prizes!)

I was pleased with how these projects came out, I can’t wait to hear what you think!  Wondering if you would like to take a daisy making class?

The girls also made a new In-Color Stampin’ Tool- they punched, stamped and inked up this paper with the 5 new In Colors. Don’t you just love them together?? I don’t know how Stampin’ Up! manages to do it, but these colors are so on trend right now. Lemon Lime Twist is my favorite! What about you?

 

The supplies to make the vase of daisies was from my local Dollar General store (artificial flowers- just pluck the “heads” off and use the stems as your base) and a little candle holder worked perfectly.

We had a fabulous morning of stamping, laughing and crafting. So much fun!

 

Well, now I want to share a baby card, since that is our Theme after all… Rock a Bye Baby.

I used the stamp set “Little Cuties” which will retire this month, I think this is a versatile set- you can make a lot of projects with this one! I paired it with Cupcakes & Carousels DSP stack and colored my rocking horse with our awesome Watercolor Pencils! What do you think? 

Thanks for visiting today, be sure to check all of the talented designers and leave us a comment- we love to hear from you! Ready to go see what Kate has created this month? Me too! Click the icon:

CCDT- April Hop- Happy Easter!

 

 

Hi Everyone!

I’m tickled pink to tell you that I am all packed for my next Stampin’ Up! adventure- our OnStage local event- I’m heading off to Toronto, Canada (yes, that was the closest location by car for me) and some of my team are going with me as well! Be sure to swing back here over the weekend to see some photos of our trip!

This Easter will be different for me, the first one without my mom, and then on top of that my sister and her family are going away for “spring break”, so I wanted to give my niece and nephew some fun Easter treats before they leave on their trip.We are actually celebrating Easter a day early so we can be together as a family. I know everyone will enjoy these treats- love the M&M’s in pastel colors! Good thing I saved my Top Note die, (it retired a few years ago, but I saw this idea on Pinterest and couldn’t resist). Also, showcasing an outgoing In Color- I’m really going to miss Cucumber Crush, what a nice vivid spring green.

These two mini egg cartons I actually purchased from a friend and fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Karyn Morrison, didn’t she do an amazing job?! We were both vendors at a recent craft fair and I loved that we both had so many different items for sale. So I picked these up for my two nieces. (I hope they don’t see this post, lol) Jordan’s favorite color is pink and Claire’s favorite color is purple, so I picked out mini egg cartons in their favorite colors. Karen filled them with eos lip balm and Lindt chocolate). She was much smarter than me and ordered the egg cartons back in January when the Occasions catalog launched, whereas I thought I had more time to order them. Well, they were wildly popular and we quickly sold out of them, but the good news is- they are back, so if you want to order them- go for it! You can expedite shipping to have them here in time for Easter.

My nephew is going to get this one (I know I showed this in a previous blog post, we made this at a demo get together back in February designed by the uber talented Peggi Fleming). (I might change out the Easter basket to a blue or green one) although I did just place my own order on Tuesday so maybe I’ll make a new one just for Ethan. (I’ll let you know). 😉

I did put together my paper pumpkin kit from March and I plan to use these cuties for place settings at our table for Easter. Everyone will love some little Easter love. (good thing I had two kits for my use last month!)

And here are some Easter cards I am planning to feature at my upcoming Easter cards and treats class on April 11th. (I still have a little room, let me know if you’re interested). This one was made by one of my downline, Amye S., isn’t this adorable? I think my customers will love making these, it is filled with a little Lindt chocolate lamb.

 

I threw a few more pictures in here for you to see all of my Easter creations in one spot.

Well, that’s it for today, thanks so much for visiting me! Ready to go see what the amazing Kate has created for us?? I love this design team so much, everyone is SOOOO talented!

Here is the whole group:

CCDT March Madness Blog Hop!

img_4251

Hi there crafty friends and welcome to our March Blog Hop with the Creative Circle Design Team!! Thank you for hopping by today! We are a small, but mighty group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who love to share our creations with all of you! These ladies always amaze me, and I have learned so much from each and every member of this team.

This month our theme is “March Madness” (I know for many people that has a basketball analogy, but I’m no sports fan, sorry)… so I’m opting to share with you five cards I recently did at my stamp a Stack class.

This fun birthday card shows off the Party Animal Designer Series Paper, the base is in emerald envy card stock. The stamp set I used is Badges and Banners, which coordinates beautifully with the Best Badge and Duet Banner punches.  Other colors used are: Pacific Point and Crushed Curry.

This card was so easy to color with our new watercolor pencils and a blender pen on our Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper (this is a free Saleabration item), and a cooper foil dragonfly. (Sadly I have been needing a lot of sympathy cards lately.)

 

I received a beautiful swap with this set Big on Birthdays and decided to change up the colors. I used calypso coral and wild wasabi markers to color in the flowers and as the cardstock colors for the card base and layer. I used the petal burst textured impressions embossing folder for the base.

 

This is one of my favorite cards I designed just for this class (and shout out to my team who was over my house for my first ever “Open Studio Day” last month- they gave me wonderful input, and I love how this came out- thanks ladies!).  I just adore the the “Beautiful You” stamp set, stamped with stazon ink on our watercolor paper and used our new water-coloring pencils and an aqua painter. Do you see that shimmer on the umbrella? That is the clear Wink of Stella pen- just a great finishing touch, I think.

This last card is similar to the card I made recently for my dad’s birthday. This used the new “Nailed it” stamp set, matching dies to cut out the tools, and features the new hexagon textured impression embossing folder.


This is one of my most popular classes- I do this on the 4th Monday of every month. It is a 10 card class (2 each of 5 designs) with envelopes. The ladies always love making a whole stack of cards.

Creative Circle Design Team- Love is in the Air!

img_4251Hello friends! Thank you for joining us today for another exciting blog hop with the Creative Circle Design Team! I am so thrilled to participate with this month’s talented group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!! Our amazing leader, Liz Holloway, created a file for us to use on our Silhouette Cameo machines- and you are going to be wowed for sure!

 I use the silhouette cameo machine and the file Liz sent and cut out all my hot air balloon pieces, and sat down to color them with our new Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils, they are dream to work with and I use the blender pen to soften my coloring to give it the water color look.

 I had trouble cutting chipboard so I opted to just cut the file on our new SAB paper.


This was a breeze to put together, I love how adorable it is perfect for a table decoration for a birthday, Valentine’s Day or special occasion.


I can’t wait to see what the other ladies have come up with! thank you so much for stopping by my blog today, click the “next button” to go see what Kate has created this month:
