More Awesome Sales!

sale nov26

Hi there stamping friends!

Did you wake up to snow where you are? I’m not a fan of winter, or snow, mainly because I have been in several car accidents, always in the winter weather (and always hit by someone else who’s car is out of control). Yes, it is pretty to look at and I do like having a white Christmas, but that’s it. I’m always a little anxious if I have to drive in it. Here’s hoping you all have a safe drive today whereever you’re going.

I wanted to bring you these awesome deals, honestly I can hardly believe how many products Stampin’ Up! has rolled out in the weekly deals and in the Holiday Sale!! Many of you are getting those deals, and I thank you for shopping my online store! Can’t wait to pick a winner of the hostess dollars!!

Ho, Ho, Ho!

To get a little jump start on all the “Black Friday” shopping and wonderful deals for you to consider, Stampin’ Up! is pulling out all the stops for their Holiday Online Shopping Sale! This is a sale to beat all sales!!! But instead of one or two days of sales, we have things marked down (while supplies last) for 13 days- you can get incredible discounts-up to 50 percent-on some of your favorite products! This is the perfect time to stock up on some of your favorite items or if you are a new stamper- it’s a great time to give Stampin’ Up! a try.

And make sure you don’t miss out on our 24-hour-only doorbusters happening on the first day of the sale-30 percent off the Stampin’ Trimmer, Simply Scored Diagonal Plate, and Many Marvelous Markers! The 24-hour sales period on these three products ends at 11:50 PM (MT), November 20.

Here’s some fine print (details about the sale):

  • This sale is the same as the annual Online Extravaganza sale of years past–just with a simpler name.
  • Discounts range between 20 and 50 percent-awesome!
  • Discounted products are available on all order types (customer, demonstrator, workshop, and online).
  • Hostesses who have earned a 50%-off item may not apply that discount to an already-discounted product.
  • There’s no minimum purchase required to participate in this promotion. Sale on!
  • For product bundles, you need to use the bundle item numbers provided. If you use individual item numbers, you won’t get the discount-bummer.
  • You can buy additional products from any of our current catalogs on the same order.

Also- if you are wondering about shipping times from Stampin’ Up! for any of your online orders, here’s what they posted on their website today about shipping estimates:

We recommend that you submit your holiday orders by the following dates to receive them by December 24:

  • My Digital Studio print products: December 6 for regular shipping, December 14 for Second-Day Air, and December 15 for Next-Day Air
  • Traditional products: December 17 by 11:50 PM (MT)

Delivery times vary depending on where you live; if your personal experience indicates that it takes longer for packages to reach you, you should allow a little extra time for shipping during the holidays. As you know, we cannot control delivery times. Holiday mail volumes are high, and our delivery services encourage customers to ship as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

**Don’t forget I offer beautiful gift certificates- if you would like to give (or receive) one- contact me- I can work with your family or loved ones to make this an extra special gift.

For any of you who do take advantage of these amazing specials, I encourage you to shop from my online store at:

http://Lynnstreifert.stampinup.net

and use the Hostess Code: XFM343XF

My name will pop up as the hostess, but on December 2nd, I will pull one customer’s name out of a hat, and that person will win all the hostess benefits. that’s right- YOU could earn free Stampin’ Up! products, in addition to these amazing sales, you could win free things too! All you have to do is order from my online store between 11/20-12/2 (the length of the Holiday Sale). then on 12/3 I will pull a winning name using Random Number Generator and will contact the winner with the amount of their hostess winnings. I just wanted to do a little something extra as my thanks for those who participate in my online store.

Questions??? just shoot me an email at LStreifert@nycap.rr.com or give me a call. Or reply here to this post.

Happy shopping, and Saving!! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Stamping Frenzy…

Hi there friends!

Im sorry I haven’t posted much lately on my blog…. (I have been popping things on my Facebook Lynnzcrafters page if you’re worried about missing anything, be sure to “like” that page). Well the reason why is my calendar is bursting at the seams with the Book-a-thon results, lots of card and tag parties, and a big vendor fair I participated in yesterday.

image

This is me with my booth all set up. We were in the Atrium (where I go stamping with seniors every month). It warmed my heart that so many of my family and friends came out to shop! There were actually 20 vendors there, a wide selection of goods. A shout out to my wonderful sister Sue and niece Claire who brought me lunch (I don’t even think to pack a lunch), and watched my booth so I could use the ladies room.

image

These mini coffee cups were a huge hit! I put a Starbucks brand K-cup (for the Keurig machine) or people could swap out the coffee for Hershey kisses.

image

More goodies, I put individually wrapped mints inside the reindeer tins.

image

I made 40 of these mini magnets, stamped on our whisper white paper, punched out with 1″ circle punch, then used crystal effects to adhere to the flat bottom glass rocks. Hot glued the magnet on the back.

image

These post-it notes holders were very popular. I stayed away from decorating them with Christmas papers so people could keep them out year round.

image

All my Christmas gift card holders sold quickly. This one was everyone’s favorite.

image

Wanted to show you how I wrapped up hostess gifts for Sheila, who had her fun tag party Friday night!

What do you think? Would love to hear from you! Please leave a comment. Also, looking for your input, I am doing an event at Glendaal Elementary School in a few weeks- Holiday Bazaar, where the kids can shop for gifts for their families… Is there anything you think I should offer? Thanks for your input!

Have a wonderful Sunday! I’m off to a workshop up north today, my friend Elizabeth booked a party for today.

Thanks for visiting my blog, I really appreciate you!

Happy Book-a-thon Day, More Weekly Deals!

Good morning everyone!

I am participating in a Bookathon today with Stampin’ Up! and in order to earn the prize, I need at least 3 parties scheduled before Dec 31st. Who can I count on to help me out here? We could make ornaments, or tags or Christmas cards, gift card holders, gift packaging, banners, framed art, stocking stuffers, etc.

1459263_674040065959611_1628115534_nThis cute candy bar wrapper is one idea of something we can make or I can give as my thank you for your booking! So many choices!!
I would charge a small fee to cover supplies or it’s FREE with an order that night (contact me for those details). We can even have it at my house in my craft room, so you wouldn’t need to clean and prep your home – also a good option for those with limited table space!

Stampin’ Up! has some really cool kits and products available that aren’t even pictured in the catalogs right now. I have to report my bookings today so please let me know ASAP if you are interested! thanks!!

Christmas Stamp a Stack- Deadline is Almost Here!

image

Hi there Stampers,
There is a lot of work that goes into our Stamp Camps that we offer at the Clifton Park Elks Lodge in Ballston Lake. We purchase stamp sets and supplies and prepare our samples weeks in advance (these cards we made in early August)…. We set our price to include a room rental fee, door prizes and Grand Raffle Basket, plus the card stock, ribbons, embellishments, envelopes, and supplies (like grid paper).

It can be tempting to wait until the last minute to register for our events, but what you should know is we do have a minimum number of stampers we need at each stamp camp. Would you please help me out by passing on our stamp camp info to others who love to stamp? We welcome children ages 8 and older, if they are interested in crafting and can follow directions. (We have enjoyed many mature young ladies who have done most of the stamping/card making, with just a little help needed).

How much would you spend for a night out with friends? We priced stamp camps this fall at $25 each (there is a discount of $10 if you register for all three stamp camps at once by September 15th).

You will not be disappointed! In addition to making 2 each of these 4 one-of-a-kind, precious Christmas cards shown at the top of this post, but you will also receive from me a very special thank you gift for attending this event:

image

(Colors may vary)

Do you like? If so, then please register today! Would love to stamp with you! We ask for registrations by September 15th.

Here is a sneak peek of one of the gifts you will make at our October 29th Stamp Camp:

image

Can you see the adorable ornament peeking out of the custom stamped window box? You will love making this- perfect gift for a teacher, co-worker, neighbor, family member, or hey- keep it for yourself!

We did finish the planning for our October 29th Camp, and made up the samples this weekend, are you ready to hear the line up? 2 stunning Pop-n-cut Gift Card (or money or gift certificate) Holders, an Ornament in Gift Box, A Hot Beverage themed muslin bag (we’ll give you some candy to put inside, but the bag will hold other gifts as well) with matching gift card holder (note: we picked some blues and neutral colors), and 10 Christmas Tags and a cute little Envelope Pouch to keep them all in.

I will be working on the October flyers to send out next week.
Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks for stopping by! Hope to stamp with you soon!

Lynn

Mini Stampin’ Up! Convention in Clifton Park, NY!

whirlwind stampers

Today was a wonderful day! I had the pleasure of helping my upline  (the very talented and generous Dania Welch) put on a “mini” Stampin’ Up! convention for our downline. Together with Deb Kolberg, (my “sideline”) we prepared these wonderful make and take projects shown here today. Together we had a dozen of our downline for a day of stamping, laughing, swapping, learning, inspiring and eating. We had a “Thanksgiving Inspired” theme, featuring items from our new Holiday Catalog that Stampin’ Up! is launching on August 1st. (let me know if you would like a catalog, it is chock full of wonderful wrapping, decorating, scrapbooking, card making and holiday projects!!)

This was the project that I designed and prepared (and YES, I’m planning to do a class where YOU can make this too!)

IMG_3217

I wish I had taken a photo of everyone with their frames, each one was different and unique, there were 12 different frames and I was amazed at how wonderful they came out.

This is the Thanksgiving Tablescape Kit that will surely help everyone with their decorating this year, Dania had each of us make a place setting, candle and she gave us a food label for our dishes:

IMG_3326

Included in this kit are all the supplies to make 10 place settings, food tents, candle wrappers, and even the chalk marker!

IMG_3299

IMG_3303

This is how the candle looked grouped together with some other fall decor items:

IMG_3327

This was a card everyone made that Dania prepped for us:

IMG_3298

This was an amazing candle votive and box (to hold the votive), perfect for gift giving, or decorating your home/office. This was created by Deb:

box and candle

Dania also got us lanyard’s with her team name: Whirlwind Stampers
IMG_3292

Dania cooked up some turkeys, and we each brought some side dishes. I am doing a 12 week weight loss challenge and wanted to be sure there was some veggies, so I made this Turkey veggie platter:
IMG_3291

And what would a demo get together be without swaps? Last month we did a mini squares swap and decided to do it again for today. Everyone signed up for a “Bright” color in advance, and we picked the designer paper called “Modern Medley” which is a basic black and very vanilla base. I need to get another shadowbox to put my swaps in (can you guess which one is mine??)

IMG_3328

We also made a full color chart, learned about My Digital Studio, and brainstormed ideas and thoughts of where we’d like to grow our own stamping businesses. It was a great day and I know everyone enjoyed the time together. When I got home, after unpacking everything I realized that I could watch the Stampin’ Up! Closing Ceremonies in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was “livestreaming” over You Tube. I was touched and inspired all over again. What a GREAT day! My favorite quote came from the funny and talented Bonnie Thurber, from the Stampin’ Up! Home Office: “Friends help friends make scrapbooking easy!!” and on that note, I decided I’m going to blog about scrapbooking tomorrow! Stay tuned!

Hope you know how much I appreciate each one of you readers, thank you for stopping by my blog. I hope you’ll leave a comment about something you’re thankful for, or let me know which project I showed here is YOUR favorite.
