TGIF… Lynnzcrafters Team Stamping

Wow, this was quite a week, wasn’t it?  i love my weekends, so much more time for stamping and creating… I prepared a couple fun cards for my team get together tonight, here they are, what do you think?

image

I wanted to feature new products, so we are using the new circle and label thin lists to be able to make these cute “swing” cards, it’s so easy! The little leaf file folder card I learned how to make while watching a you tube video from another demonstrator named Patty Bennett. Wouldn’t this be a great card for a secretary or co-worker? It was so easy with our new envelope punch board and stamping trimmer.

Spoiler alert, the little Halloween card featured here is also a card my club girls will make too (in addition to the fall banner I showed you he other day).

Did you see my post yesterday about the clearance rack new additions? Well, I saw online that some items are already sold out, so if you had your eye on something get it quick, and don’t forget to use my hostess code to get the lower price and to be entered to win my monthly on,one drawing.

Well, thanks for reading. Have a great Friday!

Christmas Stamp a Stack- Deadline is Almost Here!

image

Hi there Stampers,
There is a lot of work that goes into our Stamp Camps that we offer at the Clifton Park Elks Lodge in Ballston Lake. We purchase stamp sets and supplies and prepare our samples weeks in advance (these cards we made in early August)…. We set our price to include a room rental fee, door prizes and Grand Raffle Basket, plus the card stock, ribbons, embellishments, envelopes, and supplies (like grid paper).

It can be tempting to wait until the last minute to register for our events, but what you should know is we do have a minimum number of stampers we need at each stamp camp. Would you please help me out by passing on our stamp camp info to others who love to stamp? We welcome children ages 8 and older, if they are interested in crafting and can follow directions. (We have enjoyed many mature young ladies who have done most of the stamping/card making, with just a little help needed).

How much would you spend for a night out with friends? We priced stamp camps this fall at $25 each (there is a discount of $10 if you register for all three stamp camps at once by September 15th).

You will not be disappointed! In addition to making 2 each of these 4 one-of-a-kind, precious Christmas cards shown at the top of this post, but you will also receive from me a very special thank you gift for attending this event:

(Colors may vary)

Do you like? If so, then please register today! Would love to stamp with you! We ask for registrations by September 15th.

Here is a sneak peek of one of the gifts you will make at our October 29th Stamp Camp:

image

Can you see the adorable ornament peeking out of the custom stamped window box? You will love making this- perfect gift for a teacher, co-worker, neighbor, family member, or hey- keep it for yourself!

We did finish the planning for our October 29th Camp, and made up the samples this weekend, are you ready to hear the line up? 2 stunning Pop-n-cut Gift Card (or money or gift certificate) Holders, an Ornament in Gift Box, A Hot Beverage themed muslin bag (we’ll give you some candy to put inside, but the bag will hold other gifts as well) with matching gift card holder (note: we picked some blues and neutral colors), and 10 Christmas Tags and a cute little Envelope Pouch to keep them all in.

I will be working on the October flyers to send out next week.
Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks for stopping by! Hope to stamp with you soon!

Lynn

Washi Wednesday- Halloween Style

Hi there friends,

this is going to be a super quick post- I haven’t been feeling that well (allergies are kicking me down) the past couple days. Hoping allergy meds kick in soon!

I didn’t want to wait to share my Washi Tape Halloween projects with you!

This is a quick and simple card that you can make in under 5 minutes!

Can you spot the Washi tape? I used it to hang the “trick or treat” insert on my Halloween “BOO” banner. Can you see the embossed black hats?

IMG_4251

 

Here is the full view of the Halloween banner again, I know I posted it the other day- but wanted to show it again.

I have spots left in this class- it is Monday September 30th at 6:30 pm.  Banner and Halloween cards/treat holders class fee is $20 (or discounts if you order that night with me).

Hope you can join me!

Happy Wednesday!

September Classes are Planned!

Hi there friends,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend, I really enjoyed mine! Did you see the movie “The Butler”? wow, it was amazing, I highly recommend it! Forrest Whitaker should win an academy award, in my honest opinion, for that role! I love historical movies, even if they are embellished a little bit. What’s your favorite movie?

I did do quite a bit of stamping this weekend too. I earned a Diva Day yesterday with one of my wonderful uplines- Deb Valder- I will be posting those projects later in the week. I’m actually going to be incorporating many of the projects into some upcoming classes this fall. So stay tuned. I also went to a wonderful birthday party for one of my friends and downline- Judy Battiste. She had a whole Tex-Mex theme and the food was fabulous, plus it was great to see her and her family. Fun night!

Because September is just around the corner, I did finish up the flyers for our Christmas Stamp a Stack at the Clifton Park Elks on Tuesday September 24th. We have set the deadline to register as September 12th. To print the flyer- Click here: Christmas Stamp-a-Stack Flyer.

I also finished planning my September classes in my home. Click here for the flyer of all my September offerings: September 2013 Classes

New on the agenda is a Halloween Class- you will make this adorable “BOO” banner, some Halloween cards and a candy bar treat holder. Hope you can make it!

IMG_4253

I am in love with our new banner kits and am going to be planning all kinds of banner events this fall! What banner would you like to see me offer?? Would love to hear from you!

I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and thank you for coming to my blog to read this post! Happy crafting!

Mini Stampin’ Up! Convention in Clifton Park, NY!

whirlwind stampers

Today was a wonderful day! I had the pleasure of helping my upline  (the very talented and generous Dania Welch) put on a “mini” Stampin’ Up! convention for our downline. Together with Deb Kolberg, (my “sideline”) we prepared these wonderful make and take projects shown here today. Together we had a dozen of our downline for a day of stamping, laughing, swapping, learning, inspiring and eating. We had a “Thanksgiving Inspired” theme, featuring items from our new Holiday Catalog that Stampin’ Up! is launching on August 1st. (let me know if you would like a catalog, it is chock full of wonderful wrapping, decorating, scrapbooking, card making and holiday projects!!)

This was the project that I designed and prepared (and YES, I’m planning to do a class where YOU can make this too!)

IMG_3217

I wish I had taken a photo of everyone with their frames, each one was different and unique, there were 12 different frames and I was amazed at how wonderful they came out.

This is the Thanksgiving Tablescape Kit that will surely help everyone with their decorating this year, Dania had each of us make a place setting, candle and she gave us a food label for our dishes:

IMG_3326

Included in this kit are all the supplies to make 10 place settings, food tents, candle wrappers, and even the chalk marker!

IMG_3299

IMG_3303

This is how the candle looked grouped together with some other fall decor items:

IMG_3327

This was a card everyone made that Dania prepped for us:

IMG_3298

This was an amazing candle votive and box (to hold the votive), perfect for gift giving, or decorating your home/office. This was created by Deb:

box and candle

Dania also got us lanyard’s with her team name: Whirlwind Stampers
IMG_3292

Dania cooked up some turkeys, and we each brought some side dishes. I am doing a 12 week weight loss challenge and wanted to be sure there was some veggies, so I made this Turkey veggie platter:
IMG_3291

And what would a demo get together be without swaps? Last month we did a mini squares swap and decided to do it again for today. Everyone signed up for a “Bright” color in advance, and we picked the designer paper called “Modern Medley” which is a basic black and very vanilla base. I need to get another shadowbox to put my swaps in (can you guess which one is mine??)

IMG_3328

We also made a full color chart, learned about My Digital Studio, and brainstormed ideas and thoughts of where we’d like to grow our own stamping businesses. It was a great day and I know everyone enjoyed the time together. When I got home, after unpacking everything I realized that I could watch the Stampin’ Up! Closing Ceremonies in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was “livestreaming” over You Tube. I was touched and inspired all over again. What a GREAT day! My favorite quote came from the funny and talented Bonnie Thurber, from the Stampin’ Up! Home Office: “Friends help friends make scrapbooking easy!!” and on that note, I decided I’m going to blog about scrapbooking tomorrow! Stay tuned!

Hope you know how much I appreciate each one of you readers, thank you for stopping by my blog. I hope you’ll leave a comment about something you’re thankful for, or let me know which project I showed here is YOUR favorite.
