Don’t forget to click the Next Button below to check out Carolina’s  amazing creations. PLUS, keep reading for a chance to win a bunch of new crafty presents!

This month we are excited to have three Awesome Guest Hoppers that you should definitely check out:

1. Cindy Waldroff
2. Barbara Welch
3. Angela Carter

 

Ready to get started with my projects? The theme this month is “Black and White and Whatever You Like”…  there are so many awesome color schemes that coordinate nicely with black and white. I knew I wanted to use our brand new Sale-a-bration recent release of Pedal Pusher, and the last time I was on a bike was when I went to California in September on the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip and we rented beach cruisers to ride along the boardwalk. One of the bicycles was this dreamy mint macaron color, so that’s what I decided to go with for my “whatever I like” color.  Once I started this idea, I started noticing this color trio everywhere!

So this was my inspiration for my card creation for the blog hop!

Luckily, as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I was able to pre-order the three new releases earlier this month, and had time to play with them all- and I just had to incorporate all three into this blog hop.

I knew I wanted a pop of color, and our gorgeous washi tape did the trick!

I knew I wanted it to be a birthday card, so the mini balloon punch and “It’s my party” enamel dots helped spruce it up.

Then decided at the last minute to add some mini pearls too… what do you think?

Now to create a coordinating gift card holder…

The new Metallics Glitter tape is a breeze to tear and use- no scissors needed! I love the shimmer and sparkle it adds to the mini treat bag holder.

 

febbloghop5

 

At first I planned to turn the bag on it’s side, but I didn’t really care for this orientation, so I turned it:

Much better, don’t you think?

Now for the inside- had to use the brand new set “Party Pants”… don’t you love that sentiment “put your party pants on”??? I love it!

A Few of My Favorite Things….

Hi there Stamping Friends! I hope you are doing well! I wanted to thank all who came out to our BOGO sale on Monday night and also a huge shout of thanks to my amazing team- I couldn’t do it without you! There were a lot of happy ladies who went home with some amazing deals and got in on the first day of ordering from the new 2015 Holiday Catalog! It was wonderful to see how excited they were! We sure missed my dear friend Jamie, my first recruit and special friend, please pray for healing for her. We hope she is on the mend!

Speaking of the new Holiday catalog, I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite things… whenever I get ready to share my favorite things, I have a flashback to my favorite musical-

And like Maria in the movie, when I think of my favorite things, then I don’t feel so sad… and boy does this new Holiday Catalog by Stampin’ Up! bring a lot of joy!

So without further ado, here are my top 5 new 2015 Holiday Catalog Favorite things… (Later this week I will share my next favorite five…)

3. Happy Scenes Stamp set bundled with Hearth and Home Thinlits dies… so cute!
4. Wonderland Stamp set (I’ve used it for two three swaps and my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack on Monday… lots more ideas with this set).

 

5. Fine-tip Glue pen is amazing!! this is a must have for all you crafters- it is perfect to glue sequins, thinlits (words, small pieces, etc).

Retirement….

RetiredList

 

As we get closer to the end of the Stampin’ Up! year, we’re getting ready to retire stamps and accessories from the 2014-2015 annual catalog. Don’t worry, though! You will have the opportunity to order retiring products at discounted prices (up to 50 percent off retail) before they’re gone. I highly recommend that you start evaluating your current inventory and get ready to place your orders on April 21 if you want to be sure to get what you really want.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you love the 2013-2015 In-Colors (Crisp Cantaloup, Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush and Pistachio Pudding) they are retiring and always sell out within hours of the retirement list going live… so if you need reinkers, paper, matching ribbon or designer series paper- I would recommend you order it BEFORE 4/21.  I have an order going this weekend, so let me know if you need these things before they are gone.

 

dsp 2013-2015InColors markers

 

I will then have another order going in the evening of 4/21 (after work), and of course I have orders going in each week, so if you want to save on shipping, let me know- I can combine orders, or give you the best hostess code to use. *but please know that all the sale prices are “while supplies last” and I can’t guarantee that your item will still be available if you wait for me. Best bet is to order from my online store with the hostess code below.

Thanks for stopping by- hope you got the last two blog posts with the flyers for upcoming events. you are going to LOVE the 5 cards we have planned for you on April 25th- you won’t want to miss our Spring Fling! It’s going to be an awesome afternoon of fun!

For order April 15-21st please use hostess code: PFQKPJYR

Have a great day!

Creative Inkling Blog Hop- Spring Has Sprung!

creative hop

 

Hello Everyone! Happy Spring! Can you believe it is finally here? What a long winter. Here in upstate NY we saw more snow than we’ve seen in decades. It’s still here actually, lots of snowbanks and lawn is still covered, but the end is in sight. I’m thrilled to be back again with our monthly Creative Inking Blog Hop! What fun last month, right? (although I feel bad if anyone rushed to get blendabilities markers- by now I’m sure you’ve heard the sad news that these alcohol markers are now discontinued.  If you have questions about your blendabilities, get in touch with your demonstrator so she can help you if they are defective or unopened.)

Now on to good news, Easter is around the corner and I love making cute Easter cards for my nieces and nephews. In fact, I picked this theme for the swap theme for my monthly downline get together which was this week as well. I love when I can create one card and use it for multiple events.

Here is the finished card- 2 versions actually one with button and one without, which one do you prefer?

IMG_1239

Do you know how I got those fun tie-dye colors?

IMG_1243

Yup, you are right- our reinkers and markers!  Let me tell you I have been having so much fun making colorful Easter eggs with this baby wipe technique. You take a new (wet) baby wipe, fold it up in half, add reinkers to the area you need (estimate your stamp size or mark it off somehow- you want more ink than stamp- you are making your own custom ink pad!) Make sure you pick colors that blend well together because they will bleed.

We used it in club this month too for our cute Easter Basket and treats- here’s a photo of that so you can see another project using baby wipe technique:

IMG_1185

When we made this Easter tag, I only used 4 colors (reinkers): Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, and Tempting Turquoise… but I felt it needed more, so for this Easter card, I added to it:

 

 

 

IMG_1242

 

Can you tell what the new 5th color is?

IMG_1241

 

It’s Pistachio Pudding! Don’t you love how it blends with these brights?? Well, I need to remind you that Pistachio Pudding is one of the 2013-15 In Colors, which means it is retiring from the In-Color collection in just a few weeks. If you love them, stock up on your reinkers, paper and embellishments before we run out.

IMG_1238

 

To make the three chicks on the top row, I stamped the whole stamp in Daffodil Delight ink pad, then used a q-tip to wipe off the flower, bunny ears, and egg… then added color with our markers and be sure to give a “huff” of your breath before you stamp- the moisture will help get good coverage from using the marker as an ink pad. Hope you give this fun technique a try!!

So there are all my swaps for my team get-together. Our Lynnzcrafters team is really growing- we had four new ladies join up this month alone. I feel so blessed with the love and friendships that have been created through stamping! I’ll be forever grateful for that first catalog I discovered in 2004… little did I know that four years later I would be a demo myself. I have no regrets- other than I wish I had signed up earlier! I have met the most talented, generous, supportive people at both Stampin’ Up! and throughout all the groups I’m in. I have wonderful support from my upline and sidelines (like brothers and sisters). I could go on and on, but suffice to say- I think YOU should take advantage of our awesome $99 starter kit deal (pick $125 in products, pick either 1 free kit from Spring Occasions Catalog OR 2 free Saleabration choices), free shipping and all the perks that go along with joining Stampin’ Up! If you want to learn more, leave me a comment- I’d love to have you join my team! We are really growing.

AND- don’t forget- tomorrow (Saturday March 21st) is our HUGE BOGO SALE- my Lynnzcrafters Team and I are holding this at my church- the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church at 816 Route 50 (Saratoga Road), Burnt Hills NY 12027 from 10 am to 2 pm.

At our Stampin’ Up!

I’m home!!!!!!!!!!!  Did you miss me??? I’m sure your inbox was sad I wasn’t posting every day- mental note- next year I’m taking my own laptop to convention! That’s right- you heard me, I’m planning a trip next summer back to Salt Lake City! Once you’ve experienced the fantastic city, the warm people, the generosity of Stampin’ Up! Company and Staff, you’ll know what I mean! I can’t believe I waited this long to go!! (Don’t get me wrong my two Leadership Trips were fantastic too! and I’m planning to join them in January since the Manager’s Reception is at DISNEY!!) Yup- spending my vacation time for Stampin’ Up! seems to be the right thing for me- at least next year!

So, I wasn’t sure what you’d want to see first. I took over 1,000 photos between my iphone and my Canon Rebel… some of them didn’t come out great, but luckily most of them did! Let me start today’s blog with a post about my wonderful teammates who made my first convention so memorable! The photo at the top of this post was taken by Amye as we left Salt Lake City yesterday- isn’t this amazing?!?! So beautiful there!

 

IMG_9853

 

Jamie and Amye are two of my downline who were able to make it on this trip with me….Jamie- I love the little “L” photo holder, and Amye I adore the little notebook, thanks for being great travel buddies, roomies and wonderful downline! Thanks for putting up with some of my complaining and grumpiness… going to work on being in better shape for next year!

 

And here’s hoping next summer we can have even more of the Lynnzcrafters team join us! Mark your calendars ladies- convention 2015 is going to be July 22-25, 2015!  You can sign up to join my team anytime- but if you want to join us in Salt Lake City next summer, then you’ll need to be sure you are an “active” demonstrator in April 2015 so you can register to go- if you want to join us- or have questions- let me know!!

 

IMG_0990

Hats off to Val and Barb who not only gifted us with some amazing treats (see below), but they accompanied us to dinner, and showed us the town, so glad we could be spontaneous and venture out together! Thank you ladies!!

 

IMG_0021

The little floral notebook was made by Amye, the Inspire. Create. Share. box of goodies was made by Val and the pouch “Convention Survival Kit” was made by Barb. Notice some of our free stamps and my little Halloween treat bag?? The burlap bags are a sneak peek for the September Paper Pumpkin Kits! (sorry if I spoiled the surprise for anyone- but I know many of you have commented how you would like to know in advance what is coming).  There’s another sneak peek in there- see it?? It’s a new stamp set that will be in the Holiday Catalog that goes live to customers on August 28th, (demonstrators can “pre-order” on August 1st and for those of us who went to convention, we could buy select items in the Convention Store! I had one of my checked luggage chuck full of my purchases!

IMG_0968

 

This was Amye waiting in the “S” line, right after Barb and Val found us and gave us our gifts! We were pretty overwhelmed with the size of the place and to see how many demonstrators were all there to check in at the same time we were… after we got our goodies, we went to check out the Paper Pumpkin Fun Night Out Party!

 

IMG_0969

We were amazed at all the goodies we were given when we arrived!

 

IMG_0970

 

Thanks for being such good sports as I snapped photos all week long!

 

 

IMG_0971

The Paper Pumpkin Night Out was so fun! In addition to getting to make one of the September goodie bags, for all of us who were subscribers we received a free snail with a Paper Pumpkin logo on it, and we enjoyed some yummy desserts and had lots of samples of past kits made up in amazing ways!! At one point I got up – probably to get another brownie 🙂 , when I came back to the table, Amye said my name and a quote were up on the big screen! I was so tickled pink! It was a survey I had filled out last month in the Paper Pumpkin Boot Camp weekly surveys!

IMG_0979

 

And shout out to my Paper Pumpkin Subscribers who signed up before June 30th to help me earn another free stamp set! I wish I had time to call all my customers to personally ask you questions… suffice to say I have to rely on technology (Facebook, email, blog post, newsletters, Twitter and Instagram) most of the time, one of the classes I attended at convention talked about scheduling telephone time- I am going to do it!

IMG_0973

 

The room was packed with thousands of demonstrators, treats and samples!!

IMG_0059

These are some of Amye’s swaps- she made 100 and swapped all but 3 (I believe- if I remember correctly).

Operation Jordan’s Graduation Party- a Great Success!

Many of you know that my niece Jordan is like a daughter to me. From the time she was born we had a special bond. My first niece, and with my brother and sister-in-law in the restaurant business, I was blessed to be able to have her on the weekends when they worked, along with her other Aunts too, and my parents during the work week, this kid never went to daycare. Well, she just graduated from high school last month and we just had her big Graduation party yesterday. They say it takes a village to raise a child, it was so true for this kid- and for her party!

Here she is:

Here are just a few highlights (with the crafty element) that I thought you’d appreciate: My sister Sue created these yummy chocolate brownies and chocolate cupcakes with a graduation cap topper! How cute are these???

Here are some of the decorations I made for the party and we had a Project Life station where guests could jot Jordan a “Note or a Quote” and then we had a Photo Booth – I saved room in the back of her album for a graduation section and we’ll insert all the notes from people with their photos.

Well I took over 100 photos, I don’t think you want to see all of them, plus I have to get ready for work! I was so tired last night that I took a shower and went right to bed!

Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog today! More tomorrow about my July Club projects!

Happy Monday!

Are you like me and have tons of photos and boxes of photos all over the house? And, I bet you have hundreds, if not thousands, of photos on your phone, camera or sitting on your computer, am I right? Well, if so, and if you’d like to do something about it- I am a total fan of our newest addition- Project Life! You might have noticed these items in retail stores, but Becky Higgins has partnered with Stampin’ Up! for some exclusive items and I have been using them to create my niece’s Graduation gift (it’s not a secret- don’t worry). I have plans to make many more of these fun albums and would love to have you over or plan a “Crop” where we can all work on our albums together, doesn’t that sound like fun?? Let me know when you want to try it!
Blendabilities Bundle Deal Lynn’s Blendy Buddies Bundle Deal!  (I’ll be honest, this one was not in the SU updates, but it was a newsletter I sent out to my customers yesterday, and I wanted you to be able to see my current offer- in case you’re like me and couldn’t begin to pick a few colors out to start with. I have to say that I have used these markers repeatedly and I don’t have a favorite color yet… they color so beautifully.) Stop back on Friday for a sneak peek of my July Club cards- the ladies will be coloring their little hearts out and they will be making 3 cards with blendabilities!)

Well- now you know how I feel- overwhelmed, right?? Sorry about that, but I really wanted you all to have this information. And I hope to stamp with you soon!

I’m so very thankful that you’ve visited me today and I am here to help you with all these tough decisions! Some of them are rather time sensitive (the Dear Heart will likely sell out as quickly as Sweetie Pie stamp set did).

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, I hope you are not sweltering too much and I hope you get some crafty time soon!

Lynn
