Soiree Success!

soiree

What an incredible Stamping Soiree we had yesterday in Burnt Hills! I feel so incredibly blessed with such an amazing team (huge kudos and thanks to Jamie, Amye, Wendy and Joan) and a fantastic turn out of our wonderful stamping friends! We tried our first “bring a friend” event and I think it went very well! We will be trying this again in the future for sure! We also arranged everyone to sit at the same table and my team and I rotated around the room getting to stamp with everyone. We did have a few “traffic jams” if you will, but that was because we had some newbies, and some of the cards had more steps than others. But we had a chance to “debrief” and we think we know how to help smooth out the kinks. I’m so glad to read the texts, emails, and facebook messages that everyone had fun and loved our projects. I’m sorry I don’t have a photo of Jamie’s cute tiny treat box, it sure was adorable!

Here’s a glimpse at our fun Saturday morning Stamping Soiree:

It was so busy I only had time to take one quick picture of each table, missed some folks who were up cutting at the  big shot. I would love to get more action shots and group shots- hopefully next time.

Well, that’s all for tonight. Hope you enjoyed looking at our fun Soiree photos. Again, thank you to all who came out to stamp with us yesterday. Personally, I am keeping the orders open until Tuesday, if you would like to place an order, let me know!

Happy Stamping, stay warm. Tomorrow I’ll be back to tell you all about our huge retired stamp sale- save the date March 21st!

thanks,

Look What We Made…

I hope you all had a very nice Veteran’s Day, did you thank a vet?

I was so happy to be able to organize another Christmas Card Stamp Camp for my team and customers. I was a little surprised with how many people didn’t have that day off from work, so although some of my team and customers couldn’t attend, those that did had a great time.

Here’s the line of up cards that we made and some other fun photos to show you:

camp1

 

This was a super cute and fun card, knowing some children were coming, I thought a Santa card was appropriate! This card was inspired by Ronda W,  my business coach, I saw this in one of her emails and knew I wanted to case it.

camp2

I thought that the Paper Pumpkin kit from last November would be an awesome addition, and would show off the high quality card stock and projects. The “NOEL” card was made as is (there are directions in each kit with photos and all the steps broken down for you). I just cut the card base in half to get double the cards, came up with the banner framelit option using “Mingle All the Way” stamp set with the Smoky Slate ink pad. Everyone loved the star garland, and according to Wendy, who made them last year herself, they are not that difficult. I am planning to make some this year.

camp3

 

My third card for Stamp Camp yesterday was a more involved card, coloring with blendabilities with our new Photopolymer stamp set called Gentle Peace. Each card came out unique and stampers used many variations of color to make their cards, so pretty.

 

Jamie came up with this awesome card design and stampers made one in each color. Love the snowflake embellishments!

Last but certainly not least was this awesome sparkly iridescent card by Wendy:

We enjoyed some yummy cookies while we stamped the afternoon away. It was so great to see everyone, and I thank all those who came and stamped with us.

I posted some other photos on my facebook page, if you want to check them out, and if you would “like” my page, I would appreciate it very much. When I hit 500 likes I am doing a facebook giveaway of a “Good Greetings” hostess stamp set from October.

I had to throw this last picture in there- since we were so close to Jumping Jacks, Amye, Jamie and I decided to grab dinner after stamp camp… Jamie ordered the same burger as Amye and I- only she didn’t know a Jackburger is a double burger- too funny!

Shout out to Amye, Jamie, Judy for all their help with set up and helping all the stampers! ANother shout out to Sheila and Nicole for helping us with clean up at the end. Special thanks to all who attended- I didn’t get pictures of you all, bummer- I was trying to get every stamper in action- but I missed several of you.

The room was nice and cool, spacious and very conducive to our Stamp Camp- we might be back again. THe cards we made/collected will be sent to the Wounded Warriors by June 20th- if you couldn’t make it to Stamp Camp, and you want to donate some hand-made cards- please let me know and I’ll be happy to collect them from you to include in our package.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I appreciate your time!
I sent out an email this morning about my new Ribbon Share- I’ll blog about the details tomorrow, so come back to visit! thanks!

Stamp Camp June 8th- Cards for Wounded Warriors

stampcampdeb

 

Lynnzcrafters Stamp Camp

Cards for a Cause

 

Sunday June 8th, 2014   from 1-4pm

@ Beukendaal Lodge- newly renovated banquet room

 (down 1 flight of stairs, but there is an accessible chair if you cannot climb stairs)

22 Schonowee Ave. Scotia, NY  12302

(just down from Jumping Jacks)

 

This is not your ordinary Stamp Camp! Open to stampers of all ages, no experience necessary!

Stamp Camp fee is $25 per person due to Lynn Streifert by May 31, 2014 (address/registration below).

 

This is a new catalog launch party, all cards feature Stampin’ Up!’s beautiful new In-Colors, all new stamp sets and big shot dies/folders/framelits! You will make 8 cards during stamp camp. You can choose to leave as many as you want (or bring your own cards you made at home) for the Wounded Warriors Project. (We hope that every participant donates at least one card). Please note no glitter or sparkly objects can be used as it poses a danger to the soldiers.  You will need to bring your stamping supplies (scissors, adhesives, etc)

Please feel free to share this information with any stamping friends you know who might enjoy this type of event. We hope to repeat “Cards for a Cause” on a monthly basis, if there is interest- and benefiting a variety of worthy causes that are near and dear to the Lynnzcrafters team. (we have talked about cards for Ronald McDonald House, and Operation Give2TheTroops as well as many for local charities and the American Cancer Society).

 

*Stamp Camp Registration would make an awesome Mother’s Day gift! If you’d like to “gift” a special lady with this class, contact me for a gift certificate!

 

We should have photos available on the cards we are going to feature, but we are all eagerly awaiting the arrival of our new stamps and supplies (they come from Utah you know).

 

If you would like to pay by credit card, I have the square reader and can process your payment over the phone, call me if you’d like to register over the phone and pay by credit card.
