They’re Here! The New 2017 Occasions and SAB Catalogs!

Hello friends! Today is a very exciting day! Our new 2017 Occasions (aka “Spring”) Catalog and the 2017 Sale-a-Bration Catalog have launched today!! It is the most “wonderful” time of the year as Stampin’ Up! begins their generous rewards program to customers, hostesses, and demonstrators! My side bar has the new catalogs, or if you see a product below that you like, feel free to click it, and it will take you directly to my online store.

*Sorry if you were trying to get to my online store earlier today, Stampin’ Up! had an unexpected server issue that took hours to fix, it didn’t have anything to do with volume either, those poor IT folks, I can’t image how stressed out they must feel, hope they can feel cyber hugs from NY.

I’ve decided to also apply to become a “display stamper” for the next OnStage which I will be attending in Toronto, Canada (it’s the closest location from where I live in Upstate New York). So this blog post is created with the projects required for the application, and they are all New 2017 products, so I thought you would enjoy this post.

The first requirement is 3 Standard size greeting cards, I decided to showcase the awesome new Valentine’s products:

Can you see the wink of stella shining on that little wooden heart?

This time I first colored the wooden heart with real red marker, then added a touch of Wink of Stella for some more shimmer.

Now on to the scrapbook pages, I have been a huge fan of Project Life, the simple and easy memory keeping system by Becky Higgins… and am soooo thrilled that she partnered with Stampin’ Up! with some exclusive items just for us (not found in any store!). I can’t count how many albums I have made over the years, but I can say this is the best way to get photos in albums the quickest! (If you made a New Year’s Resolution to document your travels, family memories, special occasions and holidays- or hey, if you just want an album of your pets- that’s fine too!) I’m here to help you… In fact- stay tuned, I have some new classes coming up next month that will help you get your photos in albums too!

Now here’s what it looks like inside the albums:

Last, but not least, the application for OnStage asks for two 3-D items:

This easel stand 2017 calendar was fun to make! Don’t you just love the colors in this gorgeous new Designer series paper? it is called “Carried Away” and it coordinates beautifully with the Lift me Up Bundle in the new Occasions Catalog, but this paper is a FREE Sale-a-bration item with your $50 purchase- I love it!

And lastly, my second 3D project is an 8×10″ Love themed framed art piece, what do you think of my color palette? I love Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White together, do you?

Thank you sooo much for stopping by my blog tonight! If you’re on Facebook, don’t forget my New Catalog Launch Party at 8 pm Central Time- hope to see you over there, here’s a link:

Did you see my super deal I’m offering this weekend? I decided to offer FREE SHIPPING on all Stampin’ Up! Orders placed with me through tonight at 8 pm. That’s right, I’m putting in my order tonight at 9 pm,  so if you want to take advantage of a great deal, let me know- you can order Paper Pumpkin Subscriptions, Kits, Clearance Rack items, or anything from either catalog! I am just $45 away from my goal, and hitting that “Sweet Spot”, can YOU help me out??

free shhipping

And, if we hit $300 (that is $145 away  from what orders I have right now), then I’m giving away the free exclusive Hostess Set called Good Greetings, you can see it here: Good Greetings Free Hostess Set to one of the people who placed an order this weekend, only those customers will go into the drawing. Drawing will be at 9 pm tonight. Do YOU want to Win this set???


I wanted to show you some swaps I received recently, this was organized by a fellow demonstrator out in the Midwest, and wowza, it sure is awesome to get 24 cards made from some very talented demonstrators!






This beautiful card was made by Connie Fouts, isn’t this just precious? Simple but stunning!





This card was made by Carolyn DelGrosso, and I just love her use of the Flower Patch and Bravo new photopolymer sets together- they really are fun stamp sets and I know I’ll be casing this card for sure!


I also want to share with you a card I made yesterday for my niece Jordan, she heads off to college today. I had a family dinner last night and we really enjoyed eating yummy Mexican food and hanging out.



Here are the supplies I used for this card:



My nephew even got into the Project Life by Stampin’ Up! cards that I had on my coffee table (I haven’t finished Jordan’s album yet- but I hope to finish it this week and will get it up to her). Ethan is 7 years old and loves making “bubble letters” it sure is fun to watch him create. Then he found the washi tape, and I asked him to make me a card, what to you think? pretty cute, huh?





I didn’t even cringe when he used a ton of washi tape to decorate the card he made for me, I’ll treasure it!!

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!

Project Life is Awesome!

IMG_0729Hi Friends!

I wanted to first thank everyone who came out Friday night for my First Project Life Open House night!

It was a great success- thanks to all of YOU!

There was wine, yummy snacks, and everyone got to touch and play with ALL the Project Life card sets!

Everyone made a page to take home and I’m so excited to have been able to show how quick and simple this new way of scrapbooking really is!


This was my “teaser” photo I posted on my Lynnzcrafters Facebook page to remind people to come over!



This was the wine bar, and I had Mojito mix too, but no one wanted any (wonder how long that stuff will keep?)




Friends who came over enjoyed playing and looking and seeing the whole line of Project Life by Stampin’ Up!




See Amy in the corner there? She won the Door Prize!! (I’m going to drop it off to you Amy, no worries!)



*Just please note the first two items aren’t available until 8.28 (Seasonal Snapshot).

Then, the next morning I took my niece to Karizma Hair Salon so she could get a cut and color before heading off to college next week, and I remembered that they had this little bistro table outside, so I sat and continued working on her album while she was inside. It was great “multi-tasking” if you ask me, I got all 126 photos from her graduation party all “corner rounded” and organized and matched with the cards people wrote on at her party. I just need to add a few more finishing touches, will be taking more photos when it is all done for sure.




notice my contraband?? sorry, I meant to “hide” that from the photo, but I forgot… so here it is, for all the world to see…




I just adore the tag line for Project Life: “cultivate a good life and record it”. Love Becky Higgins!




Delicious Dunkin coffee was a perfect beverage for this nice cool morning.







Because some of my friends and customers want to order the new Seasonal Snapshot Card Collection (adorable cards that kick off the fall/winter season and holidays) and it is not available until Thursday August 28th when the new Holiday Catalog Launches, I am keeping this order open until Thursday. Feel free to click any of the photos below and it will take you directly to my online store. Anyone who orders any of the Project Life collection will receive an exclusive invite to another Project Life Make-and-Take night that will be scheduled as my thank you! (Stay tuned!)

Remember to use the August Hostess Code if you do online shopping with me: YA7CNZND

Please let me know if you need any help getting started with YOUR new memory keeping, scrapbooking, Project Life!

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by to read the blog today. (Be sure to check back tomorrow to see what my friends will be making at my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack).
