April Club Cards

How was your week? I hope you all enjoyed the spring weather, finally! I’m thrilled to finally be getting back outside and started walking again.

I had activities every night this week and finally sat down last night to plan and start preparations for my club this month- nothing like cutting it close, whew.

I did some case-ing (again), I was so inspired by some awesome cards by fellow demonstrators in our local Stampin’ Up! group.

This first card was one we made last Sunday at our team get-together. The creators were Cathy K and Mary Beth W. Didn’t they do an awesome job? I love the watercolor paper- it holds up so nicely when you use the aqua painters.

This second card was inspired by a card that the ever talented Jean Hall brought for our sharing table. I loved how she used the new woodgrain big background stamp, embossed it in early espresso, and turned it into the flower pot. So cut and easy. Know how to turn it into a flower pot? Use the biggest oval framelit to get that curved edge on the bottom, then slice off the sides at the angle you want. Pretty easy.

The third card for my April club ladies is one that I designed, I really wanted to use the Trefoil Cross (single stamp in the Annual Catalog). I pulled some Wisteria Wonder DSP from my retired stash, it really made the card complete. I love doilies, don’t you?

This card could be easily turned into confirmation, first holy communion, sympathy, wedding, thinking of you, or pastor appreciation card.

I have a busy weekend planned, how about you? Any stamping plans? Hey- I have a favor to ask you- could you let me know what handmade item you would be likely to purchase at a craft fair? I have limited time and so many ideas, but I want to narrow it down to what people might be most interested in.
Don’t forget next Saturday is the Relay for Life Fundraiser at the Saratoga Holiday Inn on corner of Rt 9 and Rt 50 in Saratoga Springs. Hope to see you there!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

easter framed art

spring framed art

I have a couple openings in my two classes this Sunday March 23rd:
From 1-3 pm is my Easter Framed Art Class which will include the 6 squares shown in the Easter Framed photo above.
Also, you will make 1 Easter Card and 1 Easter Treat Holder (these are not pictured)
This class is $15 or it will be discounted as follows: class only $5 if you place a $25 order with me that day, or
Even better- the class is free with a $50 order with me that day (you would also earn a free Sale-a-bration item too!)

Then from 4-6 pm is the Spring Framed Class which will include 9 squares and a Spring Card (not pictured)
This class is also $15 or it will be discounted as follows: class only $5 if you place a $25 order with me that day, or
Even better- the class is free with a $50 order with me that day (you would also earn a free Sale-a-bration item too!)

*Now here’s the great part- if you sign up for both classes, discount of $25 class fee or only $20 class fee for both with a $25 order
Or if you place a $50 order, get both classes for only $10 and if you place a $100 order, both classes are free and you get 2 Sale-a-bration items
If you place a $100 order with me that day, not only do you get both classes free, and 2 Sale-a-bration items, but you’ll also get a $10 gift card from me as my thanks!

Space is limited to 8 people per event.

I will have snacks and beverages.
If you are signing up for both classes, of course you can “stay” in between and have some snacks, or get started early on the next project.

Please respond by 5 pm Thursday 3/20 if you are interested so I can plan/prep accordingly.

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 please let me know if you ever have any questions! I’m here to help you!

Have a wonderful Day, and thanks for stopping by to read my blog!

2014 Occasions Catalog, Stampin Up

January Classes

Hi There Stamping Friends!

Did you know that we launch a brand new “mini” catalog on January 3rd, 2014?? It is our Annual Occasions Catalog and it is jam packed full of ideas, new stamps, ribbon, papers, dies, texture folders, and trinkets galore! I pre-ordered some “must haves” and am planning my classes and events for January.

In order to plan classes that are productive (meaning 8 people register for each one), I would like your input…. what would you like to see me offer? Card classes, stamp camp, stamp-a-stack, home decor, Valentine’s class, kids craft day, or something else?

Are you interested in joining one of my monthly clubs? Clubs meet once a month at my home, I currently offer a Saturday morning (9-11 am) or Monday evening (6:30-8:30 pm) option. I have planned the dates to be the 2nd Saturday of the month, and then to keep the Monday club in the same “weekend”, it’s the Monday following the 2nd Saturday (usually the 2nd Monday, but in June it’s actually the 3rd Monday).

For club, there is no class fee but you commit to order at least $25 per month and the free hostess benefits are rotated among the club members. The month you are hostess, you bring treats. It’s really fun, simple, I clean my house and have room for up to 8 people in each club. Right now I have a couple spots in each one. I also am willing to add another club and consider another location. Amsterdam, Galway, Hudson Falls, Albany, and Ballston Spa are just a few towns where I know I have some stamping customers who have expressed interest in clubs in the past, but haven’t joined yet- maybe you’d want to start a club in your home or a location nearby (fire house, Elks club?) someplace we’d be welcome once a month?? Contact me if you’re interested.

Here are just a few cards I’ve recently created to showcase some of the new upcoming products:

card3 card card2

Please leave a comment and let me know what you’d like to see me offer first in January… or if there’s something I haven’t thought of yet. I’m always looking for new ideas.

Looking forward to stamping with you in 2014.

Fondly,

Lynn
