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!

Lynn Streifert

 

Christmas Joy! Creative Inking Blog Hop!

creative hop

Welcome to another month of stamping inspiration from a talented group of ladies! I can’t wait to see what my fellow demonstrators have to offer us this month!  You know I always have a hard time picking just one project to share with you on the hop. So for our “Christmas Joy” theme, I decided to show you what my Make and Take project was for my team retreat this weekend in beautiful Lake Luzerne, NY (the Adirondacks of Upstate New York).

True story- yesterday there was a mini snow squall and we actually had snow on the ground… luckily it melted within an hour! I’m soooo not ready for the real stuff. But hopefully this cute guy will suffice- this would be enough snow for me!

IMG_7427

 

I was inspired by the snowman on the Stampin’ Up! blog last winter, never had a chance to make him! One of my downline requested we learn how to make him, so I figured it out and prepped it for everyone to make on our 4th Lynnzcrafters Team Crafty Girls Get-Away.

 

 

 

IMG_7432

 

Want to know how to make him yourself?

make 8 whisper white circles in the following three sizes: 1 3/4″, 2″, and 2 1/2″. You will trim off the bottom 1/4″ to make them all flat. Score in the middle and fold in half. Then glue backs together (like a honeycomb) and glue to make a completely closed “snowball”. The hat is made with designer series paper: the strip is 1 1/2″ x 5″ and the two circles are 1 1/4″ and 2″.

Although glue dots held him together okay, it wasn’t sturdy enough, so I inserted a barbarque skewer up through all three snowballs and about 3/4″ above the top ball- this is so the top hat can be secured to the top of the snowman.

The then nose and two arms are from the bird builder punch and his eyes are from the owl builder punch. Then just string your greeting from a piece of linen thread and tie onto his arms.

Well, some of my team had some other ideas- look what additions they came up with:

IMG_7639

Do you like the touch of holly and the red bird on his hat? Those are not Stampin’ Up! products, but a cute additional touch- thanks Judy!

IMG_7540

Sorry this one isn’t a good quality photo- but can you see how Tiffany used our red pom-pom trim as his scarf? And she put the word “peace” on instead of “Noel”. Isn’t Frosty just adorable? You can make it too- and what a fun project to do with the kids!

We also worked on some other Christmas projects on our retreat:

IMG_7644

This was Amye’s Make-and-Take for each one of us… isn’t this Clean And Simple technique so sweet?? This designer series paper is amazing! I’m sure it’s going to be a top seller from this Holiday Catalog!

 

IMG_7648

 

Now let’s talk about STAMPS! When I started planning for this blog post I knew that I had my Frosty the Snowman project and was hoping for more fun and inspiring cards and 3D items to show you. Look at this gorgeous card that Laurie prepared for our Make-and-Take! Don’t you just love the pine trees in this new set called Wonderland? We stamped in Smokey Slate, Tip-Top-Taupe and in Craft White, embossed in White and with Dazzling Details (glitter) on the white pines. Love this card so much!

We did so much stamping, crafting and creating all weekend long, it was hard to pack up and come home, our mojo was really flowing! I took pictures of each stamper with all her creations, but I don’t want to spoil any surprises (a lot of gifts were created this weekend). I’ll be sure to post when the coast is clear for sure.

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!

sale

 

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!

We hope you can join us on March 21st at the sale! thanks so much for stopping by my blog today, have an awesome day.

Awesome Christmas Party!

Hi Friends! How are you? I have missed you!

I have quite a few things to share with you today!

catty

The other night Stampin’ Up! sponsored a new Occasions Catalog (and Sale-a-bration) Catalog Kick off Party again! Many of my team members and I went to Crossgates mall for the viewing. A bunch of us met for dinner first at The Standard, a yummy Italian restaurant (very Frank Sinatra-ish interior):

catty2

While I wish every single one of my Lynnzcrafters team could have attended too, it is such a busy time of year. Glad that Tiffany, Amye, Jamie, Tina and Molly were able to attend.

catty4

We had two demos join us as their uplines were not there, we had fun with Anne and Audrey!

catty5

Interestingly, Jamie won prize patrol (again!) so happy for her, and it is such a beautiful new stamp set!!

 

catty3

 

And here are the two new catalogs that will launch on January 6th, 2015… and this is an awesome new stamp set that we all went home with too!

 

 

dania xmas

Last night was our annual Christmas Party at my upline Dania’s house, look at this yummy Cranberry cocktail she made for us… it was delicious!

dania xmas2

Dania had this amazing project for our Make-and-Take! She ordered some galvanized metal flashing so we turned these frames into magnetic boards. How cute??

dania xmas3

Here’s Sheila, Tiffany and Judy with their boards.

dania xmas4

Not sure why Dania is hiding, but here she is with Anne, Karyn and Amye making their memo boards. So fun!

dania xmas5

A highlight of the party is our annual Christmas Grab Bag… there are a few rules: wrap a handmade gift valued around $10 in a plain brown bag. We draw numbers, and the person who has #1 opens the first gift, then person who has #2 can either steal the first gift, or open a new one. We have a “three steals and it is frozen” rule. Also “you can’t go home with your own gift rule”. This was an amazing year of awesome one-of-a-kind and spectacular gifts! They were all Steal-worthy!!

Here is the gift that I made:

plxmas2

It is a Project Life album, in the now sold-out Cherry Cobbler color. I heat embossed the snowflakes on the cover using whisper white embossing powder. I had an extra snowflake embellishment from my Many Merry Stars Kit, and I applied metallic silver ink to turn it silver. I used some other products to jazz it up, what do you think??

pl xmas

I also made a few inserts for one of the pages, just some quick and simple stamping on some 3″ x 4″ whisper white rectangles.

Be sure to come back and visit me tomorrow, to see the gift I came home with- it’s much more than one gift- it’s going to take about 20 photos to show you my gift, can’t wait to show you!

 

clearance

Circles Galore- Big Shot Dies 25% off and New Sweetie Pie Stamps!

Hi there friends,

Wow, do we have some amazing new deals for you this week! Now is the time to order some great tools for your Big Shot! These items are marked down 25% and are all very popular and trendy right now.

weekly deal

AND  how exciting is this new release of an adorable stamp set called Sweetie Pie:

sweetie pie

The artist of this set of stamps is an employee at Stampin’ Up! Her name is Cindy Bowden and she fashioned this new line after her love of Japanese  anime (especially Hayao Miyazaki’s work). Perhaps that love of cuteness (Asian-style) shows. In Japan they call it “kawaii.”   Kawaii (???? [kaw?ai?i], “lovable”, “cute”, or “adorable”) is the quality of cuteness in the context of Japanese culture. (Wikipedia)

I don’t know about you, but this amazing duo is going on my next order. You will have fun coloring the stamped images with Stampin’ Write Markers. Mix and match the images and sentiments. You will especially love playing with the frames! And remember: Classic Stampin’ Pads work best with photopolymer. 😉

sweetie pie 2

And here is some more inspiration, from the creator/artist herself:

sweetie-pies-4-sp3 sweetie-pies-2-sp1 sweetie-pies-3-sp2

If you are interested in placing an order, head over to my online store at: http://LynnStreifert.Stampinup.net

when you are shopping, type in this hostess code: GPQC3CWG

This hostess code will link you to me, my name will pop up as the hostess. Every month, if there are enough qualifying orders from customers ($150 or more in orders), then I pull a winner of hostess benefits and/or other prizes. Sometimes the orders are smaller and I may choose to select a winner of a gift certificate with me, off any of my classes or events.

Since this is the last month of Sale-a-bration, it is a good time to put in at least a $50 order, as you can pick a free item from Sale-a-bration. (I have a link to the sale-a-bration flyer over on the side bar of this blog).

Now is the perfect time to plan your spring cards, home decor, Easter projects and don’t forget Mother’s Day is around the corner. These items would work perfectly in any of your papercrafting!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for shopping with me, I love being your demonstrator and I appreciate your support!

Have a wonderful day,
Lynn
