Sale-a-Bration Questions Answered

sab1Hi there stamping friends!

How are you? Are you surviving our vicious winter? I could do without all the snow, who’s with me? I was pretty relieved that the college canceled classes for tonight (I’m sure my students were too), so I decided to catch up on some questions I have been receiving from several people about Sale-a-Bration.

First of all, Sale-a-Bration (or SAB for short) is a wonderful time of year where Stampin’ Up! pulls out all the stops and rewards customers, hostesses, demonstrators and new recruits.

SAB-tablet

How do I earn something free? For every $50 you spend during Sale A Bration gets you  your choice of anything from the Rewards brochure! Let me know if you did not receive yours. Here is a link to it online: http://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/NA/20131119_SAB_EN/20131119_SAB_en_US.pdf

sab_dots-folder

What are the bundles in the front of the SAB flyer? What if I already have that ink pad? Many people have been confused by all the bundles in the Sale-a-Bration brochure. The bundles are SUGGESTIONS only. You do NOT have to purchase a bundle in order to earn a SAB freebie. They are there to help people who might have trouble pulling together a $50 order to get the rewards. (Sometimes new stampers say they are overwhelmed by the size of our catalog, so Stampin’ Up! decided to try these new bundles, with just one code for all the items pictured). 

What if I decide to host a party?  First of all, great idea! Whether you want to have some friends over to stamp cards or make some little treat holders or 3D items, or even if you want to try making one of our kits, a home party is a fun time! If you are a hostess between now and March 31st  you will get an extra $30 in free hostess merchandise when your party hit $300 or more, plus a free BONUS thank you gift from me at your party! I have several dates left on my Sale A Bration calendar, but act quickly if you have a date in mind–otherwise we can set up a “book party” and you can collect orders from friends and family members–and items can ship straight to them! I will set up a hostess code for you  and then you just pass out some catalogs to friends/neighbors/coworkers/family or have them shop from my online store. The hostess code I give you will link all sales to your “party” and you can earn free products with a minimum of $150 in product orders.

I have been thinking of joining Stampin’ Up! it looks fun and I like the events you offer, is this a good time to join?  YES it is a great time to sign up and get the Starter Kit during Sale-a-Bration as you get an extra $25 worth free added to the kit, for a total of $150 worth of anything YOU PICK to go in your kit! There is tax but no shipping, so it’s like having a massive coupon, and a great way to build your supplies and get started. SAB is the best time of year to join Stampin’ Up!

I absolutely ADORE all of my downline… Jamie, Tina, Kim, Wendy, Judy, Amye… and although I’ve lost a few (for understandable reasons) we’re still friends and they’re still stampers… I thought I would let you know some of the fun we’ve had as a Lynnzcrafters teams: a weekend get-away crafting weekend, monthly team stamping get togethers (I supply the projects and we have yummy snacks), I share my products- that’s right I loan things out to my downline so they don’t have to buy it all, I offer training, orientation and will meet 1-1 with new recruits, answer your questions quickly and you also are welcome to my two upline’s monthly get togethers as well. Does this sound like FUN to you?? I would LOVE to welcome you to my team- and during SAB you get to pick out even MORE stuff for your kit! Only $99 to join and you get $150 worth of new products. Come stamp with me! My next team get together at my house is February 21st, let me know if you’d like to come try us out!

Let’s get the party started! Email me if you have questions, need a catalog, or want to place an order–or shop online from the comfort of your own home anytime day or night, my email is LStreifert@nycap.rr.com and I look forward to hearing from you. What would YOU like to try this SAB 2014? Order, Host, or Join?? I hope so!

See all the SAB products I used on these two cards? The banner blast stamp set and banner punch with the new  Decorative Dots Texture Embossing Folder are just a few of my favorites in this years SAB offerings.

Well, what do you think? Did I answer all your questions? I hope so. Let me know if you think of any other ones! Stay safe out there!

Thanks for taking the time to read by blog tonight, stay warm!

You Need To Try Pinterest… and the Weekly Deals!

Good Morning Friends!

Wow, I was surprised to learn so many people have not tried Pinterest yet. It is the best electronic bulletin board website out there!

It is free, easy, portable (you can add a Pinterest app to your tablet or phone) and it consolidates all your “likes” into categories that you create called “Boards”.

I keep adding new boards when I see what other people are pinning. It is quicker to go look something up on my pinterest board then to search for a bookmarked website or find a picture I printed from my computer. It is so easy!

Here’s how to get started:

Join Pinterest

Once you have a Pinterest account, here are some helpful hints on how to create boards, how to pin your favorites, how to follow people, and how to “send” a pin- yes- you can share things you find and like with your friends who are on pinterest too! This is a great way to plan a party, event, or holiday… makes list making so easy and any event can be planned beautifully with the help of Pinterest!

Pinterest Basics

Once you are on Pinterest, I hope you will consider following me! I have a board for my own creations, the new Occasions Catalog, Punch Art, Paper Pumpkin, Scrapbooking, and much more!

ALSO- here are this week’s deals, good until Monday January 27th:

weekly deal1.21.14 (2)

For more details on these sales, head to my online store. Good luck- and let me know if you have ANY questions, I’m happy to help you (if I can).

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by to read my blog.

Oh What Fun, banners and more!

Hi There Stamping Friends!

Have you noticed that my blog posts are not coming as often as they once were?? I’m sorry about that- here’s a nice long post so you can catch up on some creations and projects I’ve been working on.

First of all, so proud of our Girl Scout troop #2637, on Veteran’s Day the girls made over 50 Thanksgiving cards for the annual Equinox Thanksgiving Meals delivery program. They did such an awesome job, and I was thrilled that they wanted to continue in that generous spirit and last night they came over to my house again and we made over 100 Christmas cards for the “Holidays for Heroes” program sponsored by the Red Cross. The girls quickly decided they’d have more time to create cards if they didn’t have to slow down to write on the inside of each card, so they dictated to me a little saying that we all agreed on, and I printed on the computer.

There was plenty of giggling, stamping, punching and getting to know our 2 newest members of our troop. The girls learned more about what “deployment” means, and we talked about one of the rules for card making “no glitter”… when I asked the girls if they knew why that was a rule one of them raised their hand and said “so the enemy doesn’t find them and kill them”. Of course she was right, but I didn’t think a 3rd grader would know all that.  Anyway- they surprised and impressed me, and were so grateful and kind and sweet, my heart just melted watching them having such a good time. Here’s a couple pictures of the girls in action:

gs cards4

gs cards2

gs cards6

I just adore that she signed this one… girls who care indeed!! ❤

gs cards5

This one is so special, one girl wrote “thank you” inside each star…

gs cards3

And here they are, all 114 cards in all… notice anything special? One girl took great pride in organizing the completed cards into color families- I was impressed… might have to hire her to help me clean and organize my craft room.

gs cards

There is so much more I could say about last night, it was one of those nights that you’re just so blessed and thankful to have such wonderful children in your life. If you’re reading this Patty- thank you for asking me to help you this year with the troop, I am loving every minute of being your co-leader and looking forward to making more memories and doing important service project with our girls.

Today has been a super fun kind of day, I had 2 events today- my Christmas Banner class was this morning and each person signed up for either “JOY” in silver/blue or “MERRY” in red/green.

banner4

joy banner3

How many people does it take to make one rosette???? 3 apparently. Too funny, and some nice tips and tricks to get these together.

amy banner

I didn’t get to take a picture of each person’s banner because I had to run downstairs and pull apart the pork shoulder I had been cooking in my crock-pot. I invited these ladies, and my team for lunch as I knew I wouldn’t have much time between banner class this morning and my team get together this afternoon.

Thanks to Jamie’s wonderful recipe (same one we made on our girls weekend get away up to Lake Luzerne last month) we enjoyed a delicious meal together:

healthy lunch

Then we moved into more stamping fun, and created some beautiful framed art…I came up with the red (actually Cherry Cobbler) version as an alternate as some don’t decorate their home in blue/silver:

silver

 

 

christmas frame

 

What one do you like better? Either of these creations could be mounted inside either 8×8, 8×10 or 12×12 shadow box frame. I did one in each size to show the options, and I helped a couple who brought their frames with them today.  This is a preview of the framed art class that I am doing Tuesday night… it was supposed to be our final class at the Elks for the Christmas series we put together, but we didn’t get enough people to sign up in time to use that big room. Luckily, I have 8 people coming on Tuesday, and they will get to choose which one they want to make. To make my life even easier, Amye wanted to make both framed art pieces, so I am going to offer it to my club ladies for our December club projects. What a way to wrap up my clubs for 2013, right? Hope they all decide to re-up for our next term January-June. I’m working on the calendar for that this weekend too.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by to read my blog. Don’t forget that we have MANY awesome deals going on prior to Black Friday, did you print the flyer with all the sales? Here it is again, if you need it:
