Lynnzcrafters Team Get Together was Fun!

Good Morning Stamping Friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I wanted to show you some photos of my Lynnzcrafter’s Team get together on Friday night.

We enjoyed chatting about the latest Stampin’ Up! announcements, updates and catalog launch party coming up next month.

I prepared supplies for them to make squares for an Easter Framed Art 5×7″ piece and cute bunny treat container:

Here is Amye hard at work making her 2″ squares, they came out awesome!

Amye decided on Smoky Slate textured card stock for her background, it kind of blends in with the table, but how sweet is this??

team3

Wendy and Jamie also changed theirs up a little bit too, I LOVE it when stampers put their own spin on their projects, and make them uniquely their own.

team5

Here is Wendy’s version of the Easter sampler. I unfortunately didn’t get a photo of Jamie’s squares, sorry!

In case you missed my original framed art piece, two of which were swap squares (the bunny by Wendy and the chick in the egg by Dania).

This cute bunny treat holder (made with the adorable mini coffee cups that I bought a ton of last fall) is a case from another demonstrator, named Susan Campfield. Isn’t is so adorable? The ladies filled their cups with Hershey’s kisses. Yum!

I wanted to end with a little update about anyone interested in joining Stampin’ Up! We all received a clarifying email the other day regarding recruiting new demonstrators. Due to clarification on the recruiting policies, I wanted to state that I will not be adding any additional incentives above and beyond the $99 Starter Kit special. I love being a demonstrator and don’t want my enthusiasm for finding friends to join my team to be interpreted as breaking the Stampin’ Up! policies. My apologies for any confusion I may have caused.

If you were thinking of joining Stampin’ Up! we do have a lot of fun, you receive at least 20% off all your orders (or 20% commission on your sales), I host a monthly stamping get together at my house, we have other stamping get togethers with my uplines, we get a free catalog in advance from others, we have an exclusive website for demonstrators only (full of images and projects other demos share), opportunity to earn free products, and much much more. I give my downline a discount on any of my classes or events, should they chose to attend. I also loan out stamps, punches, dies and materials to my downline for their crafting classes and projects.

So if that sounds like fun to you, there’s just one more week left on our $99 starter kit special. That’s right, only $99 but you pick out $150 in products, and no shipping! You also receive catalogs, order forms and business supplies to help you get started.

I would love to welcome more friends to my team, let me know if you’re interested! Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, have a wonderful Sunday!!

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!

St. Patrick’s Day Fun!

The concept artists at Stampin’ Up! are a talented bunch, wish I had thought of all these fun kids crafts!! Thought that you might enjoy seeing Cindy B.’s creations from our Stampin’ Up! blog… these crafts are so easy, if you have our heart punches and a few other supplies. Let me know if you need any of these items!

st-patrick6EBE3430A40B05D3E0BEAA40

st-patrick's-day2

Make rainbows using the Big Shot and Circles Collection Framelits Dies. Create the pot using the Word Window and 3/4″ Circle Punches.

st-patrick's-day5

Don’t you love the new Banner Framelits Dies and the Mini Metallic Clothespins? The Happy St. Patrick’s Day sign was designed using MDS -my digital studio software, the download is called “Luck O’ the Irish”. It is then adhered to Champagne Glimmer Paper.

st-patrick's-day6

To make the leprechaun trap: adhere Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (Gumball Green chevron) to an empty oatmeal box. Cut a border using the Big Shot, Large Scallop Edgelits Dies, and Gold Foil Paper. Cut the top using the Big Shot, Circle Collection Framelits Dies, and Gold Foil Paper. Use Gold Foil Paper, Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Gold Baker’s Twine, the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, and MDS to make the sign. (Use a hot glue and straws to assemble the “wee” ladder.) And if you love those pom-poms—get them for free with the Heartfelt Banner Kit when you spend $50.00 through March 31. (because it’s Sale-A-Bration time!)

st-patrick's-day7

st-patrick's-day8

Make “leprechaun footprints” using Gumball Green ink and the Baby Prints Stamp Set.

st-patrick's-day9

Basic Rhinestone Jewels add a bit of bling to our four-leaf clovers. For even more sparkle and shine, we tied the package with Gold Sequin Trim

st-patrick's-day10

I think these crafts would be perfect for the classroom, the office, or your own home St. Patrick’s Day display. I am going to try to whip some of these up for my hutch. Will post pictures when I make them.

Thanks for stopping by my blog- hope you enjoyed this share today.

It’s HERE… The new 2014 Occasions Catalog!

occasion catty

Good Morning Stamping Friends!

How are you doing?? Did it snow alot where you live?? We have been slammed with over a foot of snow and below zero temperatures here, brrr I sure don’t like this bitter cold or all this snow. (I know, we live in the great Northeast… and it’s winter, but I am counting the days until spring).

Today is the first day of our new 2014 Occasions Catalog. Here is the link:

2014 Occasions Catalog

If you’d like to know what supplies were used for the cards and projects in this catalog, here is the 7 page PDF file of the “recipes” or supply lists for these projects:

Stampin’ Supplies for Occasions Catty

Here is a new card I cam up with that used 7 new products from this new catalog:

peachy

This card is going to serve two purposes. First of all, it will be one of four offerings for my newest round of clubs starting up next week. I have a few spots available in my clubs- Saturday mornings (the second Saturday of each month) starts 1/11/14 at 9 am and Monday evenings (the second Monday of each month- except for June) starts 1/13/14 at 6:30 pm. Contact me today if you’re interested. Club members receive all catalogs for free, all projects are free and they only need to commit to a monthly minimum purchase of $25. They rotate hostess benefits and when it is their month to be the hostess, they bring the treats. It’s super fun!

*Also I decided to use this card as my 2014 WOW swap by mail with other talented demonstrators all over the USA. I need to get to the post office to get mine in the mail to the organizer.

peachy2

This was a second runner up, but I realized I only ordered one package of this new DSP called “Retro Fresh” (which I just LOVE!) so I didn’t have enough paper to make this as my swap. I love the new Peachy Keen stamp set and matching framelits called “On Film” framelits. So fun, can’t wait to make more cards with this bundle.

peachy keen bundle

Peachy Keen Clear-Mount Bundle    item #135225   Price: $38.25

Wonderfully retro, this set coordinates with the On Film Framelits Dies and the Retro Fresh Suite. The On Film Framelits Dies makes cutting the Peachy Keen images quick and easy. Buy the Peach Keen clear-mount stamp set and On Film Framelits together at a 15% discount.

I’m so glad I was able to pre-order this awesome new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch:

scalloped tag punch

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch  item# 133324   Price: $22.95

Make a tag or topper any length you want! Makes creating bookmarks, tags, and bag toppers quick and easy.  Punched image width: 2″

I hope you have some time to play with your stamps this weekend, and please let me know if you’re interested in attending my clubs, classes or if you want to book a workshop and earn Stampin’ Up! products for free!
