Tuesday Updates

Hi there Stamping Friends!

Have you missed me? Sorry I haven’t been blogging that much, since my diabetes crisis last month I am taking time to exercise and eat healthy everyday… boy does that take much more time than I thought. I was attempting to walk in the woods near me, but too buggy/muddy and I didn’t want to ruin my new sneakers. I joined Planet Fitness and enjoy going there, but sometimes I just want to think and not be surrounded by all that noise. This is a new favorite walking spot- outdoor track at a local high school, love it!



Thanks for all your good wishes- this new life style, combined with Plexus nutritional products, have really helped me more than I thought possible. (let me know if you want to know more about Plexus).

Onto some timely news about Stampin’ Up!:

We are in our final week of the 2014-15 Annual Catalog and final week of the 2015 Occasions Catalog… time sure does fly, doesn’t it? Some people have said they are confused about the dates of the catalogs… Stampin’ Up! is trying something new this year. For one day only- next Tuesday June 2nd- you can order from ALL THREE CATALOGS! This is a big deal in case you are trying to get your last chance retiring items, or want to save some pennies (slight price increase in the new catalog), or you have a big order and want to earn under the old hostess rewards (as of June 3rd, the new rewards take effect). So this is a busy transition day, and the first chance you will have to order from the new 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.

11301450_10152792841346781_1519462132_n                     11272220_10152792841376781_489898723_n                     11304276_10152792841391781_1748782428_n


It’s not too late to get the retiring stamps and some accessories are still available, and marked down! Click here for the most up to date options:


Today also launches the new “Weekly Deals”- I seriously love how Stampin’ Up! picks out some things I “need” for 25% off! Here are the new deals- I have an order going in this week, let me know if you need any of these too:



(The Large Kraft Grid Journals are awesome and if you buy them now, you can use them for party favors, or holiday gifts! they are NOT carrying over to the new catalog, so get them while they last!)


Also- I want to remind you of the half off deal for new Paper Pumpkin subscribers! That’s right, subscribe by June 10th (midnight Mountain time) and you will only pay $10 for June and July’s awesome craft kits in the mail! I seriously LOVE Paper Pumpkin kits- absolutely everything you need for a fun creative outlet is included (well, except scissors, you have a pair of those, right?) These kits are a hit with children, people who have limited space, seniors, and those just starting with card making/papercrafting. Oh, and people who are TOO BUSY to craft, these kits are perfect- open, stamp, assemble and you have a card or project all ready to go! (Less time than driving to the Hallmark Store for sure!) Plus- you can use the stamps over and over- they come with a clear block and you can decorate other cards or envelopes or make your own stationary! The possibilities are endless!



Ready to give it a try?? Did I tell you that we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee?? We are that sure that you will LOVE these kits!  Just click this link and you will be able to sign up to receive Paper Pumpkin with me as your demonstrator:


The May Kit is so awesome- 6 fun birthday cards and 6 gift bags!! I hope this will be available as a refill kit! (we have lots of our past kits still available for purchase and many have refill kits- no stamps or ink, but excellent if you want to duplicate the cards/projects with the ink/stamps you already have! Have a favorite kit? Ask me how to get a refill- I’m happy to help you!)

bogo sale

Last but not least- I want to remind you of our HUGE BOGO SALE- We are up to 7 members of my team selling our retired Stampin’ Up! and other Craft Supplies to YOU! The way our BOGO works may be different from others- here’s how we do it: Come to the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church (816 Route 50, Burnt Hills, NY 12027 across from Gil’s Garage) on Saturday June 6th from 9:30 am to 1 pm. You will shop around the room from all of our tables full of retired goodies. Go to the check out table, we will give you the total of “FREE” NEW catalog products you get to pick out- you will go to the catalog table and will get to pick out anything you want equal to what you just picked out of the retirement sale- that’s truly a Buy One Get One Free deal that’s too good to pass up!! Then we add tax and shipping to the total of new products you picked out, and you pay us- cash customers will get to pick out from a free box (while supplies last), we also accept local checks, and credit cards. You can have your items shipped directly to you for an extra $6.95 (or 10%, depending on your total). You take home the retired goodies, and we will order and deliver the new items once they come in (around June 16-19th depending on UPS shipping time from Utah). We are so excited and hope you are too!!




Well, that’s it for now- I’ve got my Stamp a Stack tonight, going to go wash the grapes! Thanks for reading my blog today, let me know if you have any questions!

Retired Stamp and Craft Supplies Sale, rubber stamping, Sale-a-bration, Stampin Up, Stamps on Sale

Save the Date March 21st- BOGO Sale!

bogo sale


Hi there Stamping Friends!

You won’t want to miss out on the best BOGO (Buy One Get One Free) sale of the year! That’s right- our retired stamp and craft supplies sale is coming soon!

My Lynnzcrafters Team and I are happy to be offering you this awesome opportunity during Sale-a-bration no less!

Saturday March 21st from 10 am to 2 pm at the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church located at 816 Route 50, Burnt Hills, NY

Free card making station to the first 50 customers.


Retired stamps, inks, dies, punches, paper, tools, embellishments and much more!



How does our BOGO work? We have marked our retired items at close to original retail value. Each one of us will have a table of our crafty stuff for sale. When you arrive, you will be given a sales tracking sheet. Go around the room and shop for all the items you like. At the check out table, we will give you your total, and you can go to a table and write up your “new” items  and you will get to order NEW catalog merchandise for FREE *tax/shipping/handling charges will apply.

For example, if you buy $55 worth of retired products from among all our tables, you will get to pick out $55 in NEW catalog purchases for Free!  If you buy $100 worth of retired items, you’ll get to pick out $100 from the new catalogs for free *(plus tax/shipping/handling charges).

We will try to combine orders so that you can earn a Sale-a-bration item as well- but there might be some restrictions depending on how the sale goes that day and how various customers choose to pay for their order. (for example two different credit card orders can’t be combined to earn one Sale-a-bration).

Believe me I was in agony over this concept, but my wonderful team rallied behind me and said- “Let’s Try It!”  and so we will.

Here’s a flyer for you to share with your friends and family- we appreciate your support so very much!  Please forward this flyer to them, thanks!

Awesome Whirlwind Team Last Night!

Happy Friday Friends!! Wanted to share with you the awesome Make & Takes from our Whirlwind Stampers Team last night! Many thanks to Dania, Ron and Jan for your hard work and pulling this together for us!!


I love this new hamburger box die!!!


And I love that Dania gave us the template to help with the construction of the box, thanks Dania!!


How cute? Thanks Jan and Ron! Do you recognize the little flower treat holder? My sister, niece and friend Amye made these as my 50th birthday party favors, love them!! And Jan, I love your interpretation of a new way to use the awesome stamp set “Work of Art”- demonstrators received this stamp set free when we attended the new catalog movie premiere party back in April, and boy am I loving all the awesome cards and projects you can make with this new set. The possibilities are endless!

Don’t forget the new catalog is here! You don’t want to know how long my wish list is… oh my goodness!
To help make room for all the new stamps, papers, dies and accessories I must have- I’m planning a Stampin’ Up! Retired Stamps aka Craft Supplies Rummage Sale- it will be Monday June 30th from 6-9 pm location to be announced! (Working on space- for me and my team to sell our used/retired products). Stay tuned, and mark your calendar!


thanks for stopping by my blog today! I really appreciate your visit! Wouldn’t you leave me a comment? I love to hear from you wonderful readers- and it helps my blog show up in google search if there is activity/comments. So thanks for helping me out! (I just posted a similar request on my Facebook Lynnzcrafters page that Facebook only circulates my posts if I pay $$ or if there is a lot of activity/likes) I’d rather spend my hard earned $$ on stamps then on facebook advertising, you know what I mean?

Have a great Friday!

Changes to My Digital Studio Print Options

Happy Friday to all my Crafty Friends! I saw an update on our Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator website and I wanted to share it with you, as I know several of you have tried, purchased, or are considering My Digital Studio. This is exciting to me to see that SU takes our feedback and is ALWAYS working on “ways to improve” and I just love that about them.


Here’s the scoop:

As announced in April, we are making some changes to our My Digital Studio product line. Here’s some more information about the upcoming changes to our print products.

In June, we are switching to a new print vendor. We are excited about this new relationship and their high quality product offering! Because of this transition, we need to make a few changes to our product mix-including discontinuing some items, changing prices and options on a few carryover items, and introducing several items. These changes will also require us to temporarily shut off ordering starting on May 31. (We anticipate that ordering will be down for two weeks.)

Discontinuing Items

On May 30, the following items will be discontinued. If you are working on any of these project types or want to order additional copies of previously completed projects, you have to place your orders before they are gone at 11:59 PM (MT) on May 30.

 Item  Size  Reasoning
 Linen Photobooks 11″ x 8-1/2″ Our new printer doesn’t currently offer linen photobooks, and we’ve had low order quantities in the past.
 Leather Photobooks 5″ x 5″
8″ x 8″
11″ x 8-1/2″
8-1/2″ x 11″
12″ x 12″
We’ve had low order quantities and would have incurred significant price increases to keep these.
 Hard Cover Photobooks 5″ x 5″ We would have incurred significant price increases to keep these. We will continue to offer a 5″ x 5″ Soft Cover Photobook at a competitive price.
 Board Books* 8″ x 8″ Our new printer doesn’t currently offer these, and we’ve had low order quantities in the past.
 Hard Cover Journals* 6-1/4″ x 8-1/4″ We would have incurred significant price increases to keep these. Instead, we decided to move to a Soft Cover Journal with two binding options.
 Tags* 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
2-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
We would have incurred significant price increases to keep these. We suggest using new Project Life cards (see below) for tags.


*As you know, we have a variety of digital downloads with these specific project type templates. We are working on a fix in the software so that your previous projects will convert to a new project offering. For example, a  6-1/4″ x 8-1/4″ Hard Cover Journal project would convert to the new Soft Cover Journal. We’re working on fixes for the other discontinued project types.



Changes to Carryover Print Products
We worked with our new vendor where possible in order to keep costs low. Unfortunately, we need to make some small price and option changes to several of our carryover items. Watch for more information with all the new prices soon.

 Item  Size  Reasoning
All Hard Cover Photobooks Black and white endsheet options only Our new printer does not offer the same variety of endsheet options. We examined ordering trends and found that the majority of the books ordered had black or white endsheets, so we’ve decided to continue forward with those two options.
White fly sheet, same as our Soft Cover Photobooks The vellum fly sheet would have caused an additional increase in the cost per book.
All Photobooks and Additional Pages Price increases There are increased manufacturing costs.
Individual Pages Price increases There are increased manufacturing costs.
Minimum order quantity  of 10 The majority of orders exceeded our previous minimum of five. Our prices would have increased even further if we kept the minimum at five, so we felt this was a good compromise.
Calendars Price increases There are increased manufacturing costs.
Cards Printed on heavier weight cardstock Our new printer offers higher quality cardstock at a comparable price.


New Print Products

We are excited to introduce the following items soon:

 Item  Size
Perfect Bound Soft Cover Journals 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, 80 double-sided lined pages
Spiral Bound Soft Cover Journals 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, 80 double-sided lined pages
Project Life Cards** 3″ x 4″ and 4″ x 3″
4″ x 4″
4″ x 6″ and 6″ x 4″


**Optional rounded corners for additional cost

Print Ordering Downtime

Watch for more information, prices, and pictures for these new items in the coming days and weeks. As you can imagine, this shift will require some work on the back end before we roll out the new products. We need to make changes in the software and get everything set up with our new printer which will require us to turn off print ordering. We anticipate that the changes will take us about two weeks, starting on May 31. Again, if you are working on any discontinuing project types or will need an order during the downtime, please place your orders before 11:59 PM (MT) on May 30.



Here is a link to my online store that has our Freebies:

Also- here were some specials I want to remind you about, always trying to SAVE YOU MONEY!!
