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!

It’s BOGO Time!!

Hi everyone!

I’m thrilled to announce that my team and I are planning our next Lynnzcrafters BOGO (Buy One Get One) free Sale of our Retired Stampin’ Up! products!

Mark your calendar- it is on Saturday June 17th from 9 am to Noon

Location: Inside the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church- 816 Route 50, Burnt Hills, NY 12027 (this is across from Gil’s Garage).

There will be 7 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators selling their retired Stampin’ Up! products: stamps, ink pads, ink refills, punches, sizzix dies, card stock, designer series paper, 12×12″ scrapbooking supplies, project life by Stampin’ Up!, ribbons, buttons, embellishments, tools and much more!!

Our BOGO sale is different from others, here’s how it works: 

  • You shop around the room (might want to bring a canvas tote/shopping bag) and pick out all the items you want to buy.
  • You go to the check out counter, where the fabulous Amye will calculate your total and give you a tracking sheet and order form.
  • You go to the catalog table and fill out the order form and pick out all new products from the 2017-18 Annual Catalog as you “free” items.
  • Go back to checkout and Amye will collect your payment and confirm your order (we will add tax and shipping on just the “new”).
  • Anyone living outside the immediate Burnt Hills or Glenville area will have their items shipped directly to them (this is a $6.95 shipping charge, but so worth it to get your orders quickly).
  • Free catalog to anyone who spends at least $25 at our sale that day.
  • Free gift (choice of items donated by the demonstrators in the sale- at the “gift table” such as cards, ribbons, 3D objects, etc) for paying in cash (this really helps us at the end of the day to divide up the orders)… but we of course accept checks and credit cards as well!
  • Free gift (choice from gift table) for orders over $50

On behalf of Amye, Tiffany, Laurie, Sharon, Brigid, Valerie and myself- we thank you for sharing our event, telling all your crafty friends, and your wanna-be crafty friends. Hey- bring the kids, since it’s almost summer break, they’ll need some Arts and Crafts goodies to keep them busy once school’s out.

Hope to see you on June 17th!


thanks so much and have a great day!

Stampin Friends May Blog Hop

 

Hello Stampin Friends!

Welcome to our May Blog Hop- our theme this month is Flowers or Sympathy cards… I’m sure you will receive lots of inspiration from all of the talented stampers!

If you came to me from Raquelle’s blog- welcome! Isn’t she fabulous? Love her creations! Also, I’d like to give a shout out to Lori Mueller, our guest hopper this month! (we are in another hop together on the 20th of each month, you will love Lori’s projects, she is very inspiring!)

 

This is a card I created to incorporate both elements from this month’s theme, flowers and sympathy. Sadly, I’ve need far too many sympathy cards in the past few weeks and I depleted my stock in my own card rack. So I made up a bunch of these.

This card features the new Daisy Delight punch, stamp set (yes- it’s a bundle!) and the gorgeous Designer Series Paper. I used the greeting from Heartfelt Sympathy and used the smallest flower punch from the Tree builder punch to make the little yellow flowers (daffodil delight card stock) and then the small white centers are from the small hole punch.

Here it is without a sentiment so you can see the gorgeous DSP.


I totally ran out of time to make a new 3D project… my apologies. I thought I would share the two 3D projects I featured for my last WTGD (Way to Go Day) for my top 4 ladies on my team. This is a new quarterly rewards program I have started for this Stampin’ Up! year, the first one was in January after the first quarter was over. The second one was in April and featured these projects featured here, and we will have two more this year. Here is the original Blog Hop: http://wp.me/p3eRQX-1Y9

What do you think?

Well thank you so much for visiting me today, are you ready to go half to the next stamper?

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:

We Create Blog Hop- June 2016

Hi there Stampin’ Friends!! How excited are you that it is June 1 and the launch of our brand-new 2016–17 Annual Catalog? You will love all the new In-Colors and products!

This past Memorial weekend I spent time up at my parents trailer in Cape Vincent, New York. I went up to help them open up and clean the trailer, and while they watched their baseball games at night I worked on a TV tray and created some cards for a swap I am participating in, I decided to use this design for the blog hop today as well as it features several new products.
First for my inspiration I found this lawn ornament at my local Lowe’s. I love my new flirty flamingo!

This is the old TV tray I worked from.

juneblog

This was my simple card,  I stamped pink pirouette ink with the watercolor wash stamp (so glad that carried over!) onto whisper white cardstock. The flamingo is stamped in melon mambo, and with a q-tip I removed the melon mambo from the legs and beak… then colored right on the rubber with basic black marker. Pop of Pink DSP and the “Hello” stamp are from the new kit called “Oh Happy Day!” (I just adore this new kit- it is so bright and colorful!) then fussy cut the palm leaf and pineapple.
And here is my stepped up version. I would love to know which one you like the most. I love to read your comments!

Whirlwind Stampers FUN!

Good morning stamping friends!

Have you missed me? I have been sooooo swamped at work, bringing reports home to read every night, and have little NO time for crafting since I returned from Salt Lake City. (insert sad face)… Luckily we had a team get together at my upline’s house last night, it felt so good to create again, we made three awesome cards and the demonstrators who signed up for Make and Takes also created some other cards with the same stamp set for our inspiration. Here was the line up:

First up is our fearless leader Dania, she made these two cards and the third one was our Make & Take. Love these dinos!! Dania used the new stamp set “No Bones About It”, which made all these cards a breeze since they are the clear (see through) stamps called Photopolymer!

IMG_5258 IMG_5259 IMG_5260 IMG_5269

 

I can think of a few kids who would love this card… how about you?

Next up is the amazing Anne K.  I love her style, don’t you? The first two cards were her alternate (inspiration) cards, she used the new “Made with Love” stamp set in the new Annual Catalog and the Mini-Treat Bag Thinlits, (the bottom/last card two views is what we made)… We all thought it was great how she used the Baby’s First Framelits to create a window for the center of the card… and when you pull out the insert, it is a Gift Card Holder!! How awesome, thanks Anne!!

IMG_5257 IMG_5256 IMG_5255 IMG_5254

 

 

Last, but certainly not least, is the line up from Judy B. She is one of my friends and downline, we were in awe of ALL she made with the new “Awesomely Artistic” stamp set- these are just stunning, and the photos don’t do them justice. The first 13 cards are her alternate inspiration cards and the last one is our Make & Take. Just beautiful, thanks Judy!

IMG_5240 IMG_5241 IMG_5244 IMG_5248 IMG_5252 IMG_5251 IMG_5250 IMG_5249 IMG_5247 IMG_5246 IMG_5245 IMG_5243 IMG_5242 IMG_5270

 

*This last one is what we made  last night, and the wings of the dragonfly were made by stamping the wings in versamark ink onto vellum cardstock, then iridescent ice was applied and heat set and then “fussy cut” (that means there is no die to cut those out).

Whew, what a line up! It was a great night! Thanks Dania, Anne and Judy!

Be sure to come back tomorrow and I will show you the 3-D Swaps that some of the ladies made last night for swapping!

Have a great Friday, and thanks so much for stopping by to read my blog today- leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you- I would love to know if there are any specific blog posts, tutorials, inspiration, techniques or cards you would like me to feature?? thanks! (Also don’t forget the 1/2 off Paper Pumpkin Deal ends soon! Sign up by Monday 8/10 to get this month’s AWESOME kit (I got to see it at convention!!)
