Stampin Friends Spring Has Sprung

Hi there Stampin Friends! So glad we are featuring spring projects- winter has been trying to linger here in Upstate NY, so I’m hoping this will do the trick!

First of all, congratulations to Siretta Oltmanns, our winner of the Stamparatus!

I had the pleasure of going to New York City for work for couple of days and oh my goodness look at these Cherry Blossoms! 🌸 this really put me in for spring!

The first card I wanted to share with you is featuring a brand new bundle of products that will be available to you on May 1. I love when Stampin’ Up! has an early release and this suite of products is called Share What You Love Suite! This designer series paper is gorgeous – every piece has beautiful spring flowers, yummy pastels, and it is so interchangeable with all of our products. The stamp set is called “love what you do” and do you recognize this beautiful new base card? It is our mint macaron coming back from retirement!

It was so fun going to Onstage last week and I truly loved having a couple months of playing with new products… normally I wouldn’t tease you with something that you have to wait for but this is literally just a few days away and you can get these products yourself as of May 1st!

Next stop I want to show you this little treat box I made. Do you recognize it? I split open the silver mini gable boxes and reversed it, but before I glued it back together I stamped it up with the new stamp set that I had the honor of presenting in the Product Purchase Premiere presentation called Rooted in Nature from the new Suite called Nature’s Poem that will be available starting June 1, with the launch of the new 2018–19 Annual Catalog. (Of course demonstrators will be able to pre-order this in May so if you’re eager to get your hands on it, you should consider signing up to join my team) 😉 what do you think of blackberry bliss coming back to our lineup? I hope you are as thrilled as I am I just love this color!

Here I am standing next to my display board with most of the projects I presented, I am standing with Susan who had the pleasure of presenting The Delightfully Detailed Bundle.

And look at these beautiful cards, these were all made by demonstrators from our Creating Success with Ronda Wade group who were also at the Hartford Connecticut. Can you pick out my card?

Well what do you think? Are you excited for what’s coming up? Now is the time to stock up on any of your retiring colors as we are going through a big color revamp.

Also, Stampin’ Up! just filled up the clearance rack page in our online store, there are hundreds of new products for you to choose from to 60% off!

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of my projects today, and don’t forget to click and follow all the other demonstrators in this blog!

thanks for visiting!

OnStage Fun!

Hi friends! Wowza, what an AMAZING weekend at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event in Hartford, CT! As you can see, 5 of my Lynnzcrafters team came to this event, and we had a blast! Stampin’ Up! is very generous with all the gifts and new products they give us! I’m feeling so thankful and blessed to have been given the opportunity to do a presentation and reveal a gorgeous new Suite of products that will be released in the new catalog on June 1st!

I would like to share my creations that I presented on Saturday for you to see, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this new product line, I treasure all your comments!

Introducing in the 2018–2019 annual catalog is a brand new product suite called Nature’s Poem:

This adorable little project is our carrying over pizza boxes. These are 4 of our sweet little 3″ x 3″ note cards and 4 matching envelopes fit nicely inside. I am planning to do this project at my June bingo event.

This card features one of the color palettes from the designer series paper, I love how vibrant the cajon craze is with gold foil paper. This reminds me of autumn in New York.

These two cards were made using the baby wipe technique, I added tranquil tide and mint macaron ink on the baby wipe and then colored in the trunk with soft suede.

This card was actually the project that everyone made who attended Onstage. This nature’s hemp twine is just fabulous to untangle as well as leave alone, the possibilities are endless.

Aren’t you glad to see blackberry bliss back in our lineup of colors? It was a huge secret to keep that there was going to be a color revamp, but I am so thrilled with the choices Stampin’ Up! made to exit 13 of our old colors and shake things up a bit with these gorgeous new and returning favorites! What do you think?

Can you notice the embossing on the leaves up above? The dies that come in this bundle include framelits that cut all of the leaves and trees as well as thinlits that emboss three sets of leaves. So fun and easy to make lots of paper leaves and no more fussy cutting! This bundle coordinates with lovely as a tree, it is staying around in this catalog.

I know this photo was not very clear but I have to share it with you as I cannot share the video recording that my friend made for me. I loved being up on that stage and introducing these gorgeous new products to hundreds of demonstrators who came to Hartford Connecticut. 💗

These two photos represent the wonderful Stampin’ Up! staff who assisted me both in preparing for this presentation and help me the day before and day of with rehearsals. I am so very thankful to Andrea Withers who prepared me for this role, as well as Jessica, Spencer, and Justin! Thanks for all your help guys!

Here is a picture of me and Susan by our display board, Susan’s projects are on the top and she presented a beautiful new detailed bundle. We also got to sit together Friday night at centerstage dinner and the 80s themed party. So much fun!

I wanted to share some information about the changes coming with our color revamp. As you know Stampin’ Up! stays on top of all of the trends and Pantone color choices every year. They carefully watch fashion, home Decore all the various artist mediums. It has been five years since they have shaking things up a bit and even longer since they had this large of a change in our color line up. I am absolutely thrilled with these new colors and only a teensy weensy bit sad to say goodbye to some of our outgoing colors. Please know that everything is now on the rretirement list which posted today it is only available while supplies last.

I hope you enjoyed my post about my onstage experience. I hope to apply and be selected again some day for future Stampin’ Up! event, it was so much fun to get products early and have a chance to play with them and create. Would love to hear from you please leave me a response below! I will do a random draw on Thursday and one lucky winner will receive a set of handmade cards using this bundle from me!

Here is the Retirement List from the Occasions Catalog, please note, all items are “while supplies last”.

Blends Update

Stampin’ Up! Has shared some news about our Blends:

We let you know some of the challenges we’re experiencing in maintaining an adequate supply of Stampin’ Blends. Extremely long lead times with our supplier, combined with an unexpected increase in demand, has caused many of our current 27-color offerings to go on backorder. In fact, you’re probably already aware of the increasing backorders and low-inventory alerts for many of our Stampin’ Blends.

At this time, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to make our entire Stampin’ Blends product line unorderable until approximately the end of May. This is not a decision we came to lightly; but with backorders only likely to get worse in the coming weeks, it is in the best interest of the company—and by association, Stampin’ Up! demonstrators—to temporarily make them unavailable.

Stampin’ Blends will be made unorderable beginning Friday, March 23, noon (MT). (that means they will be turned in the ordering system)

Be assured that this decision has not been made due to any financial challenges on the part of Stampin’ Up! This is purely due to the rise in demand and the complications we face with our supplier for this particular product line.

We will keep you posted on the availability of Stampin’ Blends as we learn more.

I wanted you want to see this news… I have to say that I absolutely love these alcohol markers, I use mine all the time, and I am thrilled that they have been so popular… I am hoping they only add to this line so that we have more color options in the future.!

Creative Inking Ready for Spring!

 

Hi friends!

Happy first day of spring! I had the pure joy of spending the day Sunday with a wonderful group of demonstrators, we had a “shoe box swap ”

This adorable little pouch of candy was our favor, don’t you just love that little bunny? This technique is known as the “diaper fold”.

I loved making this card, this was designed by Regina. This stamp set is called “You’re Inspiring” and it was a breeze to color in with our alcohol markers (called blends).

This cute little card is one I’m going to feature at a private Easter party I’m having tomorrow night. I love it when my customers call me up and say “hey I want to have a party can we make all Easter goodies?” Really looking forward to crafting with some new ladies.

I hope these colorful projects help you feel like you are getting ready for spring!

Lynnzcrafters Team Get Together Fun!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m not sure how this happened, but I never hit publish on this post!! I totally want to show off the amazing team get together Lisa Mackey hosted for us back in August. I’m so sorry I don’t know how this post got put in my archive folder instead of draft…. something weird must have happened. Belated thanks to Lisa for her amazing hospitality, even though it was months ago, I wanted to show you what this very special lady pulled off for us… can you believe the food, flowers, gifts (she had homemade cookies in those little pizza boxes), and the Make-and-take projects. I am truly blessed to have such a generous, talented and fun member on my Lynnzcrafter Team!  We get together once a month and always have a fun time!

I’ve missed you!

Hi everyone! I have REALLY MISSED you! When I looked back at my last post it was on February first, good grief! I’m sorry I’ve been away for sooooo long!  I have to admit, February was challenging…I ended up getting the flu and had to reschedule many of my monthly stamping clubs due to illness and due to all the snow storms! I also changed jobs last week and wanted to be sure I was fresh and well rested, so I haven’t been staying up late to create projects or do all my normal monthly blog hops. AND, as if all that’s not enough, last week two close family members had surgery! Please keep my sister Sue and sister-in-law Kathy in your prayers. They are home recovering, but it will be a long road to healing.

So, one of the things I had to reschedule was my monthly team get together. We met the other night and I wanted to share with you the awesome swaps from this talented group, as well as my Make-and-Take projects. Enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions, I would LOVE to hear from you! I treasure every one of your comments!

Without further ado, here are the wonderful cards, and the name of who created them- aren’t they talented??!! Love these ladies!

Tiffany’s card features the adorable stamp set called “Message in a Bottle”:

Joan’s card features stunning Petal Palette bundle and gorgeous gold foil sheets:

Amye’s card also features the pretty Petal Palette bundle, and she colored with her blends (our alcohol markers):

Kara’s card was made using the manly Truly Tailored bundle and True Gentleman designer series paper:

Kathy’s card was made with the very versatile Hanging Garden stamp set and colored with our blends also:

Laurie’s card features one of our fabulous Sale-a-Bration offerings, Lots of Lavender stamp set and coloring with our awesome blends markers:

Sheila’s card features the adorable Party Panda stamp set and the Bubbles & Fizz designer series paper (both of these items are Sale-a-bration offerings- either one is free with a $50 purchase), love that fussy cutting:

Last but not least, my swap card that I made features our brand new stamp set we launched 2 weeks ago for the last stretch of Sale-a-bration called  Blossoming Basket, which is actually part of a bundle that includes the beautiful Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (together these two items are free with a $100 purchase), I water-colored using our aquapainters and reinkers (I diluted them a little bit), what do you think of the Peek-a-boo Peach and Daffodil Delight color combo?? Makes me long for spring!

This is a cute little gift Kara brought me, she made this amazing box (I think she called it the never-ending-box) the lid does not come off, but you pull it up, and it opens so you can remove what is inside- she put some Hershey’s kisses in there for me, how thoughtful?? It was such a surprise and I just adore this little handmade gift, thanks Kara! (I’m totally intimidated about these kind of projects, but she said it wasn’t “too hard”… maybe I’ll try it sometime).

Well, that’s it for today, I have some other cards and projects I will share with you over the next few days… I’m also going to try to get back to the 4 monthly blog hops that I’m involved in… I miss hopping with those talented people. It’s always so inspiring.
