October Club Projects…

Good morning friends, how are you? I have missed blogging, it has been a very busy week and I was knocked down a couple days with a virus, all I could accomplish was resting on the couch and watched some shows on my DVR…. Cedar Cove, Parenthood, and Big Bang, all caught up. Good thing I was so productive last weekend getting ready for club and my 6th Annual Columbus Day Stamp-a-Stack. Want to see some projects?  Let me know which one is your favorite, I love to hear from YOU!

First up is a card that I cased (copy and share everything) – the minute I saw this punch art turkey, I knew I had to case it. Thanks to Aly S. for the inspiration! Love this card, and the sentiment from “Mingle all the way” fits perfectly, right?? If you’re not in my club, and would like one of these cards, I am taking orders, and can mail them to you (or deliver if local) in plenty of time for Thanksgiving. Also, can do custom Halloween cards too, it’s not too late. $3.50 if mailing or $3 each for local customers. Let me know what you think. thanks.

Next up is a stamp set I have used a few times, but I can’t get enough of the cardinal, so I changed this one up, featured these framelits before I knew they were a “weekly deal”- would you like to save money? Our weekly deals are 25% off original price and good for 7 days only, they launch every Tuesday morning and expire every Monday night at midnight MT.

Card #3 for club members this month is this card, I really wanted to feature the new stars, can you believe I hadn’t made a card with them yet??

Last but not least, yes 4 projects this month, is this cute santa box, case from Pinterest (by Lynn Starzl)- I love all the inspiration from Pinterest, don’t you?

So that’s it for today, whew, that was a lot of typing… I will post my 7 cards from my 6th Annual Columbus Day Stamp a Stack later this week, need to go finish getting ready.

Hope you all are enjoying this beautiful weekend! Thank you so very much for stopping by my blog today! Would love to hear from you!!

Whirlwind Stampers M&T projects

Happy Monday! I hope you had an awesome weekend! I know I did! I wanted to show you what we made the other day at my upline’s house for our monthly get together. When you join Stampin’ Up! there are lots of opportunities to get together and stamp with others, and I’m so fortunate to have such a great upline, who inspires me more than she probably realizes… love our Whirlwind get-togethers!

This first M&T was by Debbie Kolberg, isn’t this a cute little treat bag? She even bundled up some yummy jelly beans for us, how fun!

IMG_0514

 

 



The second M&T was a great gift card holder! Dania came up with this one for us, and I loved using some new products from the soon to be released Holiday Catalog!

Please note, the “Merry Everything” stamp and the Note Tag punch are not available until August 28th, when the 2014 Holiday Catalog goes live. PLEASE let me know if you’d like a catalog- I’m happy to get one to you!

So did you do any crafting over the weekend? I worked on some cards and projects for my new Stamp and Sip events that Dania and I are going to be trying out. Wish us luck! I’m still looking for hostesses for our launch party in September. We booked the Elks and are each hoping to find five friends to reserve a whole table for $30 (they can decide whether they want to “treat” their friends, or have everyone chip in.) the tables hold up to six people each. We are having a chocolate fondue station and have lots of fun projects planned. What a fun way to have some quality time with your girlfriends! Let me know if you’d like to give Stamp and Sip a try!

 

Here is a sneak peek of one of the projects we’re going to make at the launch party:
IMG_0523

 

 

Well, that’s all for this morning. I hope you have an awesome day! Please ask your friends if they want to get together and make some fun projects- no crafting experience necessary!

Come back tomorrow to see our swaps from Whirlwind Stampers get together!

Thanks,
Lynn

August Club Cards

Good morning friends! Can you tell I’ve been burning the midnight oil? I have been stamping every night this week (and all weekend last weekend) and I have so many ideas, projects and exciting new cards to share with you- I’m practically bursting at the seams! Today you will see the 3 cards my friends will be making at my August Clubs (Saturday morning and Monday night once a month). What do you think?? I love to read your comments, they really make my day to hear from you! thanks and happy stamping!

I already shared the card “recipe” the other day (all the Stampin’ Up! products used to make a card) for the sunflower card. Do you like when I show you all the products? I can do it for the other two club cards, if you’re interested, please leave a comment and I will do so. thanks!

 

IMG_0412

 

I adore the new Photopolymer set “Dear Heart” (the boy version of the “Sweetie Pie” set that sold out a few months ago- what do you think?

IMG_0393

 

This card is a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) from Pinterest by a stamper named Heidi- thanks so much for the inspiration! I always let my stampers change the greetings, if they want, this card would be perfect for someone going off to college, or a birthday, get well, thinking of you, and many more occasions!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have an awesome day!

Fun Fold Card Swap

Spoiler alert for any of my Whirlwind Stamping stamping demonstrators who are swapping this month… but I was so excited with how my card came out, I decided to blog about it today!

So our August Stamp and Share Get Together with Dania Welch’s downline is tonight, and I challenged myself to do a swap card that features ALL new Products, new stamp set, new Designer Series Paper AND was a “Fun or Fancy Fold”. So I thought I would break out my brand new “Amazing Birthday” stamp set that I received free at Convention last month. I also thought about how challenging masculine cards can be, and thought of the patriotic colors in the Maritime DSP…. well, this was NOT quick to make, it was a lot of stamping, punching, fussy cutting and yes, some mistakes were made…. but I’m pretty happy with how it came out- what do you think?

 

IMG_0357

 

Want to know how I made it? Well, it is a Screen Card (I sure hope this is a “Fancy” enough fun fold card, it sure was challenging to make it!)

Coastal Cabana base is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/4″ Scored at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″ then punched bottom “Legs” using Decorative label punch and made the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

Then Stamped each image from Amazing Birthday in Real Red, Coastal Cabana and Night of Navy ink pads, hand cut the “happy”, “today” and “amazing” words. Used the circle punches for the birthday cake and used the Little Labels punch pack for “make”. Used banner framelits to cut out the “Happy birthday to you” and the DSP behind it. Here’s the card recipe:

 

 

I love to hear from all of you- please leave me a comment and let me know YOUR favorite fun fold card!

If you need any of these items, just click the picture and it will take you right to my online store, so you can shop at your leisure!

Stamping With The Inketts

Yesterday was our monthly get together with the NY Inketts, one of the wonderful teams I am fortunate to be a part of, since I am in Deb Valder’s downline, I get to attend her monthly team meetings. She brought tons of new products for us to see and touch and had over 25 prizes from the all new preorder new catalog items, there were some very happy ladies yesterday! I won one raffle and picked a new ink pad… one of the new in colors, can’t wait to play with it!

The Make and Takes were just awesome- so much time, work, effort went into preparing these card packets so all we had to do was stamp and assemble. What a line up- I have been admiring the wedding cake card on Pinterest, so thanks to Marie and Arlea for prepping that card for us! The Owl card was prepared by Ann and Robin, the Tulips bouquet card was a M&T by Janet (I know she had a partner but I forgot who it was, sorry), and the gorgeous Daffodil Card was brought to us by Pam and Regina. Great job ladies, these “punch art” cards were just over the top awesome!

Here is the Owl Card done two different ways, what do you think? Do you need a graduation card this year? Or just know someone who LOVES Owls (besides me that is??)???

mayinketts2

Well, today’s post is short and sweet, hope you like these cards- and as always- I LOVE reading your comments, and it helps my blog show up on goggle search engine if I have comments, so you’re actually helping me out by leaving a comment.

Also- did you know that more items have been added to the Clearance Rack? Also the Retired List has been a surprising hit- at least with shoppers, some items are selling out. If there was something you needed, check out the retired list in my online store and hurry to order what you need or want.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog! Have a great day! (Are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo? have fun!)

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!

March Club Cards

Good Morning Friends!! How was your week? Mine was super hectic, burning the midnight oil so to speak to get my monthly club projects ready for the weekend. I have my Saturday morning club and Monday evening club. Both are going well and I’m always willing to start a new club if we can get 5-6 new stampers together. Contact me if you want to get a group going. It’s a lot of fun! (Right club ladies… chime in here in the comments below).

 march club 1

Since this is the last month that we’ll have Sale-a-bration opportunities to earn free products, I really wanted to make sure my stamping friends could try even more product out. My line up this month is featuring many punches, new Designer Series Paper, and of course new stamp sets. Please let me know if you would like any “ingredients” for any of these cards. Feel free to ask a question here on this blog page or email me for more info.

march club2

When I first saw the alligators popping up all over Pinterest, I knew I needed to make one. This one is a case (copy and share everything) card from a fellow demonstrator named Jennifer T. she is an Artisan award winner and does beautiful work. I modified it a little bit with the paper and supplies I had on hand.

march club3

This card was created out of a mistake, don’t you love it when you make a mistake and you like what you fixed better anyway?? This card features our Sale-a-bration DSP called Sweet Sorbet and is my absolute favorite thing from SAB this year. It is so pretty and fun to work with.

march club4

I needed a St. Patrick’s Day card and thought my club ladies would appreciate this soft watercolor wonder paper as a background. I had made a card with 4 leaf clover a few years ago and I just modified that one for this idea. It’s the full heart punch (make 6 of them) score in 1/2 and run all through the Decorative Dots Textured embossing folder, available only for Sale-a-bration!

march club5

This card is a bit more advanced but I knew I wanted to use another Sale-a-bration stamp from See You Later Alligator stamp set, and I thought “You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Grey” was a perfect sentiment to put on a Smoky Slate card. I went on pinterest and found Sandy H’s awesome card and had to case it. I can picture adding flowers to the vine, in front of the fence, and even adding a rainbow to spice this card up some more. But suffice to say, this is a lot of steps. But my club ladies are worth it.

Four cards this month, no 3 D items this time… next month will have Easter and of course other cards and projects featuring more new product from the Occasions Catalog.

Won’t you please leave me a comment, let me know which card is your favorite? And comment if you’d like more info about joining a monthly stamping club.

thanks and have a great weekend!

Lynn
