Card Making at the Senior Center & Blog Candy Give Away!


Good morning stamping friends! I hope you have had a great week! Do you have fun plans for the weekend? Tomorrow we will be traveling to Syracuse to celebrate Mother’s Day with my family- looking forward to it, we have a lovely brunch at a restaurant called Justin’s Tuscan Grill and then hopefully if the weather cooperates we will head to a local park to visit and hang out together! I don’t want to show you my Mother’s Day cards/projects yet- so be sure to come back on Monday to see my creations.

Today I want to share with you four cards that I did last week at my monthly card class at a local senior center. Shout out to my friend and downline Brigid, she volunteers to come each month and help me with this class. Thanks so much Brigid!

This sweet card is one of two projects you can make from your March 2016 paper pumpkin kit! This kit made four cards of this size, and four gift card holders simply adorable!

 

Because I love my paper pumpkin kit so much, and I’d love to put one in your hands, because I have this prepaid gift card, I am issuing a blog candy challenge, leave me a comment about why you want a kit (what you would use it for, who you might create with, any comment about these fun kits). Be sure to leave a comment on this thread here on my blog, scroll down to the bottom and you will see a spot where you can leave a comment. Be sure to leave a comment by Tuesday, May 10 at 5 PM. I will draw one winner using a random number generator, and I will contact the winner between 8 and 9 PM to redeem this kit I will need your contact info.

This card showcases the free stamp set Stampin’ Up! gifted to us in our April 2016 paper pumpkin kit. The stamp set is called “All About Everything” and it is just gorgeous. I came up with this flower pot design to showcase a flat and simple card. What do you think? Those outgoing in colors just really pop, I used Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, blackberry bliss, and hello honey. Did you stock up on these colors before they retire?

This simple card showcases three products that are carrying over to the next catalog, so glad the kit called water color wishes is carrying over, also happy about the botanical blooms set, and timeless textures from the Occasions catalog!!

This fun card is perfect for that special guy, unfortunately this stamp set called “going global” is retiring, if you want this set, you must order it by May 31!!

Here are a couple variations of this card with other sentiments.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!! I hope you have a wonderful day, don’t forget to leave me a comment if you want to be entered to win one free paper pumpkin kit! (This contest is open to everyone, my downline, customers, other demonstrators, and friends!)

MainAd_retired2016_OLO_Apr1816_USCAI’m still a little jet lagged from my trip home from Salt Lake City- didn’t crawl into bed until 3 am…. haven’t been up that late in a LONG time!

Stampin’ Up! just released their retirement list for the 2015-16 Annual Catalog and 2016 Occasions Catalog. In addition to a long list of retiring stamp sets, there are also tools, brads, ribbons, buttons, scissors, big shot dies, In-Color 2014-16 products and much more, that are going away forever!

I’m having some computer problems as I type this… and the Stampin’ Up! website is very bogged down with thousands of demos trying to get on right now. I hope you can open this is the retirement list as a PDF:

Retiring Past Paper Pumpkin Kits

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads out there. My dad is away this weekend, so we will be celebrating one night this week when he is home from camp. I decided to catch up on some work in the craft room, including blogging and sending some emails. I thought you would be interested to learn that Stampin’ Up! has announced that there will be some of our past kits that will be retiring on June 27th- so if you want them, get them before they’re gone!

 

http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=112102

Hurry and order before June 27th, after that they are “retired” and no longer available. As an added incentive, for any online orders between now and June 30th (including these Paper Pumpkin specials, OR anything you just want to order), I have a FREE gift for you- that I will pop in the mail (or local peeps I will give you) as my thanks! I am very close to reaching my sales goal for the month of June, and I need a little help to push me over, (about $500 away from a sweet spot too). So,  I will give you either a clear “D” size paper pumpkin block or one sheet of dimensions with each $25 order from my online store. You must use Hostess Code: XFNCQJF2
Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful afternoon.

Cottage Greetings Card Class

I’m not sure about you, but I’m worried summer is going to fly by pretty fast… so I am giving you advance notice of another card class I am offering in my home.

It was a no-brainer to look to another awesome new kit in the 2015-16 Annual Catalog called Cottage Greetings Card Kit and it has a beautiful coordinating stamp set (sold separately). This kit makes 15 cards (5 each of 3 designs with envelopes and liners!), and I decided to offer this as a class, this will be my July Stamp-and- Sip on Friday July 31st from 6:30-8:30 pm. Since I will be at convention, I need you to register for this class by July 20th (I am going to order the kits about 7 pm that night, and they’ll be waiting for me when I get back.) Also, you will receive a $5 coupon to use off any order you place with me that night! Hurry, space is limited!

Check out this video! Enjoy!

 

cottage greetings

If you want to have a stack of cards to keep on hand that are pretty and not hard to put together, this is the kit for you!
Hope you can make it to the Stamp-and-Sip, or if you want to do it with friends, host a private class and I’ll bring the stamps, ink and the kits! (Earn free products by having a qualified home party).
Well, that’s it for now, have a great day! thanks for visiting my blog!

Tin of Cards

newcatalogHi there Stamping Friends!

Lots of you are asking about the awesome Tin of Cards Kit, (which is featured on the cover of our new 2015-16 Annual Catalog) and many have asked if I will do a class, and I would be HAPPY to offer this as a Class. Just purchase the kit from me ($35 includes the kit+shipping+tax) by July 1st. (contact me to arrange payment). Then sign up for which Tin of Cards Class you would like to take:

  • Wednesday July 8th 6:30-8:30 pm
  • Tuesday July 14th 6:30-8:30 pm

Yes, I am offering this class twice- I have the stamp set, the inks, and tools needed to complete this project in one night- you will make all 16 cards and your dividers to organize your tin.

Each class is limited to just 8 stampers, so register to reserve your spot today! (I need at least 3 people to hold class, so be sure to invite your friends- this would be a great event to bring a new stamper with you, they would have a blast and everything is already cut and scored, so it’s just stamping and assembling!
Can’t make the class, but want a visual? Here is an awesome video that Stampin’ Up! made for us:

Wishing YOU a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Hi there stamping friends! It sure has been challenging to keep up with the blog this month, my apologies friends! I’m also going to be one of those shoppers out today finishing up my shopping- luckily some local purchases are needed- but I’m usually done by now. I didn’t get as many handmade gifts made for my family, and our 2015 calendar that I make in our MDS program is not done yet either. But the accomplishments and time spent with my family and friends this month as we make memories, that is more than worth it. Some highlights for me this month- on top of some awesome Christmas music at my church, which is always a highlight, I took my mother to see a Christmas program at a local church- Our Hope Will Come- and it was fabulous. Our Girl Scout community went caroling to a local senior living facility. Also had a fun day trip to NYC on Saturday with my niece and nephews.

nyc

I really want to thank all of you for your encouragement, comments, and support. A Huge THANKS to all my wonderful customers! Many of you have asked how I am doing on earning the cruise, well, I’m not quite 1/2 way there… I do have until June 30th, 2015 and I am still working on earning it. (I had thought of giving up at one point, but some of my wonderful Lynnzcrafters team members encouraged me to keep trying, so I’m back at it).
