My Favorite Things…

Good Morning!

With the launch of the Holiday Catalog the other day people have been asking me what my favorite items are from the Holiday Catalog, if you want to know too, then here you go…. Here’s my Top 12 new Holiday Catalog Favorites!

 


I hope you have enjoyed looking at my favorite items, now tell me- what is your favorite item out of the Holiday Catalog??

I posted a very quick post last night asking for your help to reach a goal for this month. You see, Stampin’ Up! has a Career Plan that rewards demonstrators based on their individual sales each month. And, as you know, I am trying to earn the Incentive Trip for 2016 now- I had to set monthly sales goals- which are far above what I normally do each month.

That’s why I need your help. I am about $200 away from my target (or sweet spot as I called it yesterday) as not only will I reach my goal, but I will also earn a higher commission. I can really use that as I need to buy new aprons for all my new downline, and I’m treating my team to a weekend get away in Lake Luzerne next month, so the extra commission will really help me out.

Because I’m hoping there are a few things you’d like to get out of the new Holiday Catalog- I decided to offer you a FREE SHIPPING weekend- if you contact me by 8 pm on Sunday August 31 to place your order, then you will not pay any shipping on your whole order.

ALSO, to sweeten the pot (just thought of this over my morning coffee) if I actually hit $300 over the weekend in orders, then I will use the new free exclusive Hostess Set “Good Greetings” as a prize- each person who places an order with me will be entered to win and one lucky winner will get this nice stamp set (that’s IF I hit $300 mark).

Do you  think I can do it?? I hope so, and thank you for even thinking about helping me! I hope it’s a win-win.
Have a wonderful Saturday and thanks so much for stopping by my blog today, I really appreciate your visit here today!

Welcome to our 5 new Lynnzcrafters!

WOWZA! I can hardly believe the good fortune that has occurred! This week while Stampin’ Up! offered their “Short and Sweet Deal” on the starter kit, my team and I were busy planting seeds (“Wouldn’t you like to save money?” or “wouldn’t you like to have some fun stamping sisters?” or my favorite “would you consider helping me out?”) I am beyond thrilled to announce that we have 5 new team mates aboard this week! Congratulations to Molly who has recruited two people, welcome Ashley and Debora! Wendy has also recruited and I’d like to officially welcome Joan! and I was fortunate to have two friends, almost within minutes of each other, both sign up- many thanks to Amy D and Sheila!!

I am going to sit down this weekend and type up a team newsletter and calendar of all our events that are planned for the rest of the year to help you out. Also looking at planning some more stamping get togethers and team meetings to help everyone learn the ropes.

I also want to thank my awesome team: Jamie, Amye, Judy, Wendy, Tiffany, and Molly for helping to put on another fun stamping night Wednesday in Rotterdam (I think we need to come up with a name for our little get togethers there- anyone have any ideas??) The projects were super fun and we had a great turnout for the last hurrah of summer!

here are some of the few photos I took, I wish it was more, the night got busy and I forgot to take more photos at the end.

as you can see, we enjoyed some treats at this one, as we surprised Judy with a little birthday celebration. The ladies enjoyed making 3 cards, 5 gift tags and a cute box to put them all in. There was so much excitement in the room, it was great to listen to friends chat and catch up, stamp and giggle together. I love that the most about stamping!

 

Well yesterday the 2014 Holiday Catalog officially launched, and boy are you in for a treat! We are going to be having lots of classes, events and stamping parties to get you all ready for this wonderful season. Here is the link to the new Holiday Catalog– I hope to have the link on my blog later today.

I was fortunate to earn this awesome new stamp set called Good Greetings back in June with a sales promotion Stampin’ Up! was offering to us at the time. well now it is available as a FREE gift with any $300 workshop, party or order closed by October 30th! That’s right, book your party with me and I’d love to help you earn this stamp set with $50 in free products as well!

Want to Earn Free Stamps?

Hello Friends! Did you notice anything new on my blog today? Over there, on the left side, see it?? It’s the New Stampin’ Up! Catalog link!! It really works, thanks to a wonderful webmaster, blogger, demonstrator named Amy Celona!! She makes these widgets for us demos to put up on our blogs. Thanks Amy!!

So, did you make out your wish list yet? With the launch of the new 2014-15 Annual Catalog yesterday, the online stores were really burning up the internet… I didn’t place my order yet- I need to finish planning my classes, workshops and clubs- so I decided to wait a day or two. The good news is, I decided to offer a special deal to anyone who books a June 2014 Stampin’ Up! Party with me… on top of all the regular hostess rewards for having a home party, I am going to gift each person at your party (and you too of course) with a coupon $5 off their $25 or more order at your party.

5-off-michaels-coupon

You might think I’m a little crazy for offering that deal- but here’s the scoop- Stampin’ Up! is having a contest this month and I want to win a new stamp set, so I’m off to work on my sales and My Paper Pumpkin PRE-PAID subscriptions. I’m hoping you can help me out.

A GIRLS’ NIGHT IN, WITH A FLOURISH

When you host a Stampin’ Up! party, I will help you arrange a night of creativity and laid-back enjoyment with your friends. The benefits go beyond girl time, too: I will bring supplies, tips, and ideas to share. This is a time to enjoy creating projects together. And not only will your friends love it, but as hostess, you’ll earn fun benefits also. You can provide some simple snacks and once we pick a date, we can get the party ball rolling!

You could have your very own theme party! Chicks and chocolate, Sip and Stamp, Flower Power, Patriotic Party, and much, much more!

All you need is table space for you and your guests to stamp- if you need extra table/chairs- I have folding tables and chairs I can bring with me. The possibilities are endless.

I have several dates available in June, so contact me at LStreifert@nycap.rr.com to book your party.

Is June too busy for you, but maybe July or August would be better? I have many available dates all summer long and would be happy to have a “special” offer for YOUR party.

Not able to have a home party- I understand! Just want to get your hands on some of our brand new products and want to save money too? Well, by using my monthly “Hostess Code” when you shop my online store- you are saving around $5 (depending on your order size) in shipping charges, as you don’t pay the $6.95 shipping/handling charge when you use a hostess code. For June, my Hostess code is: 44JY62GK but that’s not all! Every month, I combine the totals from all the online orders, and if there are $150 or more in product orders, then I put everyone’s name in a hat and draw a winner to receive all the hostess benefits! It could be you!

boltend-1Today is our last chance deadline to register for Stamp Camp on Sunday June 8th. This is going to be such a fun afternoon, if you’re interested get in touch with me by 8 pm tonight, June 3rd, so we can prepare all your card stock and goodies for you!

 

Thanks for stopping by- I hope to Stamp with YOU soon!
Lynn

Happy October! Lots of Specials!!

Hi there Stamping Friends!

I just checked the Stampin’ Up! website to see what the new “Best of” stamp set is, and wow, there were a couple great announcements. First let me show you this “Best of Christmas” how adorable is this set? So happy to see “Dasher” return, I miss that cute little reindeer.

But wait- that’s not ALL- are you sitting down??? there are 2 other amazing announcements that Stampin’ Up! is offering:

25 special

Join for $25 offer   (Please know this is not the same kit as the $99 starter kit special, but is intended to help you become a demonstrator should you wish to join my team- would you like to be a “Lynnzcrafter”??)

Finally, an offer to continue celebrating our 25th Anniversary year- Stampin’ Up! is pulling out all the stops- if you are a HOSTESS in October, you will earn an extra $25 in free product if your party is “qualifying”, that means if your party sales totals $250 or more! I can set up a HOSTESS code for your party so you can invite your friends and family to shop from my online store to help you earn the extra free product. I saved several dates on my October calendar, contact me today if you’d like to be one of my October hostesses!!

October Hostess Promotion

*I had already scheduled the previous post last night after my Halloween class, thought it would be nice for you to wake up to those images, but last night I forgot today would be the new “Best of” flyer… had no idea there would be other specials too. Although I’m surprised September whizzed by so fast, certainly glad to have such a line-up of great specials for October!
Hope to stamp with YOU soon!
