April Club Cards

How was your week? I hope you all enjoyed the spring weather, finally! I’m thrilled to finally be getting back outside and started walking again.

I had activities every night this week and finally sat down last night to plan and start preparations for my club this month- nothing like cutting it close, whew.

I did some case-ing (again), I was so inspired by some awesome cards by fellow demonstrators in our local Stampin’ Up! group.

This first card was one we made last Sunday at our team get-together. The creators were Cathy K and Mary Beth W. Didn’t they do an awesome job? I love the watercolor paper- it holds up so nicely when you use the aqua painters.

This second card was inspired by a card that the ever talented Jean Hall brought for our sharing table. I loved how she used the new woodgrain big background stamp, embossed it in early espresso, and turned it into the flower pot. So cut and easy. Know how to turn it into a flower pot? Use the biggest oval framelit to get that curved edge on the bottom, then slice off the sides at the angle you want. Pretty easy.

The third card for my April club ladies is one that I designed, I really wanted to use the Trefoil Cross (single stamp in the Annual Catalog). I pulled some Wisteria Wonder DSP from my retired stash, it really made the card complete. I love doilies, don’t you?

This card could be easily turned into confirmation, first holy communion, sympathy, wedding, thinking of you, or pastor appreciation card.

I have a busy weekend planned, how about you? Any stamping plans? Hey- I have a favor to ask you- could you let me know what handmade item you would be likely to purchase at a craft fair? I have limited time and so many ideas, but I want to narrow it down to what people might be most interested in.
Don’t forget next Saturday is the Relay for Life Fundraiser at the Saratoga Holiday Inn on corner of Rt 9 and Rt 50 in Saratoga Springs. Hope to see you there!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Clearance Rack, Magnet Platform, Stampin Up

New Clearance Rack Items!

Hi There Stamping Friends-
Just wanted to give you 3 quick pieces of GOOD news!

1. There are MANY additions to the Clearance Rack Today! (brads, buttons, ink pads, card stock, designer series paper packs, punches, ribbon, Core’dinations- card stock with a different color core, tulle, buttons, paper stacks, STAMPS, fabric, clips, shimmer paint, big shot dies, big shot texture folders, and cookie pressed stamps- to name a few). Don’t wait if you want any of these items.

Sadly there are people out there who wait for the first day new items arrive and they try to gobble them up and resell them on ebay! EEEK! who would do that, right? (demos are not allowed to do that!)

I set up a new Hostess Code for September and it is: 4PQQCQEG

What is the hostess code? You will receive the “preferred” or lower price listed in my online store. Also, by using the hostess code, you will be entered to win my monthly drawings. I put all the online orderers name’s in a hat and pull out one winner each month! So far I have given away dozens of Stampin’ Up! products to the lucky shoppers!

Here is a link to my online store- new clearance rack. (please let me know if you have any trouble sometimes I don’t always link things the right way, reminds me- I need to sign up for that blogging 101 class…)

2. The second big announcement is that the Magnetic Platform is available!! Wow, it has been on back-order for so long that SU turned it off… it is item # 130658 and it is a handy addition to your big shot- and makes using framelits and thinlits a breeze! *remember the caution about keeping the magnetic platform away from your credit cards, cell phone and do not use if you have a pace maker.

I love my magnetic platform, and know that with a pair of new, clean, flat cutting pads, it makes cutting out items with my framelits and thinlits super easy! It is $39.95 and well worth it, no more post-it notes holding things in place, and able to put multiples on there at one time.

I will be holding a free Big Shot class in October for all those customers who ordered either the Big Shot OR the Magnetic Platform from me! Let me know if you’re interested- I need to squeeze that in to next month.

3. Last, but certainly not least- is probably the BEST news of ALL! Shelli is on the mend, here is a blog update from yesterday, that she wrote herself! I cannot even begin to imagine how much pain she is still in, but thank GOD she is healing and has such loving family and wonderful medical care. Here is the update:

So Shelli Blog

She has a long recovery ahead, but how amazing to read of her progress in one week.

 

Well, that’s it for now,  thanks so much and have a wonderful day… sure hope the hot, humid, stormy weather is behind us… I don’t like storms.

Thanks for visiting my blog, and PLEASE leave a comment- what clearance rack item are you eager to get your hands on? the Cloudy Day Texture Folder? The fabric that went away so quickly? leave a comment, who knows- you might WIN it! I’m putting in my order tonight myself!

Take care,

Lynn

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:

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

Big Shot Projects, Chalk Talk, Framelits, Magnet Platform, Stampin Up

Magnet Platform! Making die cutting so easy!!

miss u

I just love Brandi Barnard’s videos! She does such a great job! She is one of the talented staff at the Stampin’ Up!’s home office in Salt Lake City, Utah!

I do want to give you a couple words of caution about the new Magnet Platform:
The platform produces a magnetic field—like all magnetic fields, it may interfere with pacemakers, magnetic strips on credit cards, and cell phones if they are too close to the platform. Also, do not store or use the platform near a computer (laptop or iPad either!)

So hopefully you have a little corner in your craft space to store this handy item and it will make your big shotting so much easier! I love mine!!

framelit

All three of these projects were made quickly and easily using the magnet platform with their respective framelit (the new Chalk Talk Bundle was one of my first selections from the new Annual Catalog)!

The magnet platform is item #130658 and retails for $39.95
