Hi there stampers! Have you enjoyed this beautiful Saturday? I know I did! I had my Saturday morning club ladies over for our monthly get together. Above is the photo of the 4 projects I prepared for them: A petite purse filled with hugs and kisses, with a tea time charm; An elegant tea-cup card perfect for an amazing lady (yes- we embossed with the beautiful pool party embossing powder!), and a small box with a see-thru lid and 4 darling note cards (all stamped differently with the new “Best of Flowers” set that launched last month) with mini note envelopes and some tea bags!  A perfect ensemble for that very special lady, or hey, keep it for yourself as an office decoration!

Notice anything different about this card? One of my new stamping friends, Patty, stepped her card up a notch with the pearls and rhinestone. It really makes the card pop, doesn’t it?

It just so happened that I had planned these club projects out over a week ago, before I knew about the “Color REfresh” going on. I knew I wanted to have some “WOW” projects for my club members and I thought I would showcase the outgoing “In-colors”…. well imagine my surprise when we ended up having a color change up to the line up, knowing that now is huge and I’m thrilled Stampin’ Up has so graciously let us in on the plans this early! I told my club members to stock up on their favorite inks, reinkers, markers, card stock, etc. on all the out going colors, as there’s no guaruntee that they’ll make it to the clearance rack!

So here is what is GOING away in our current colors (10)  and In-colors (1):

Lucky Limeade, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard, River Rock.

Here’s a look at what our newly configured color families will look like as of May 31, 2013 (when the new catalog goes “LIVE”, a day earlier than we were planning!):

Spring Fling is Finalized!

spring fling final 4
4 cards you will make at Spring Fling

Hey there stampers! Well, we did it! My friend and downline Jamie came over tonight and  we plugged away to finalize the cards we will be making at the Spring Fling on Thursday March 21st! It is a Card Making event being held at the Glenville Hills Fire Department (NOT the West Glenville FD that I mentioned in a previous post- my bad- so sorry! glad to catch my error before I made flyers and sent out emails!) Anyway, we plan on having room for 25 stampers, it is on a first RSVP basis. You can RSVP through me, or you Lynnzcrafter’s team member (Jamie, Kim, Tina, Elizabeth, Marilyn, Wendy or Judy). It is a $15 class fee which covers paper supplies, your envelopes, snacks, bottled water, and DOOR PRIZES! However, if you place a $25 order (before tax/shipping/handling) or more- then you will not pay for the class fee! it will be free!! Who doesn’t like FREE?? However, if you RSVP we do need to hold you to your spot- we’re taking you at your word and your RSVP may prevent someone else from attending if we fill up. SO, if you have a sick child or some horrible situation pops up, that prevents you from attending, you will receive your kit as a “To-GO” kit and you will work out a pick-up time and still be responsible for either ordering or just paying the $15 class fee. If there is “Winter Weather” that causes the Scotia-Glenville School District to cancel their after school or evening activities, then we will postpone the Spring Fling Event- we don’t want anyone taking unnecessary risks on the roads. We will let you know the rescheduled date as soon as possible, in the event of bad weather. This card making event is similar to the ones we’ve done since last summer at the Elks Club. When you arrive, you will check in and receive your packet of pre-cut and pre-scored card stock with all the corresponding layers and pieces you will need to go stamp/punch/cut/emboss. All the supplies will be set up at tables and you will rotate around the room, working at the 4 stations, at your own pace, until you are done. My team and I will be there to help you, should you need it, at any stage of the assembly. Door prizes will consist of a variety of items including: stamps, papers, ribbons, embellishments, hand-made items (by myself and my team). We ask that you RSVP no later than Noon on Saturday March 16th, as we have a great deal of preparing to do in advance of this event. We all work full time jobs and Stampin’ Up is something we do in our “Spare time”… (although I’m sure I’m not the only one who WISHES it was their full time job- am I right ladies???) I sincerely hope that if you’ve never stamped before, or never attended a Stampin’ Up event before, you’ll consider our Lynnzcrafter’s SPring Fling! Thank you for taking the time to read this blog, and feel free to leave me a comment or ask a questions.Until tomorrow, Happy Stamping!!~Lynn Streifert

Introducing Photopolymer by Stampin’ Up!


Let’s get to talking about the benefits of photopolymer stamps. For those who are unfamiliar, let me point out a couple of things I personally find really cool.

First, they’re completely clear, making it oh-so-easy to stamp exactly where you want. They come unmounted, on an acetate sheet, and temporarily adhere to our clear blocks. Awesome!


Second, they are pliable. Want your arrow to shoot a certain way? No problem! Want your banner to have the perfect sag? Easy peasy! Being able to play with the shape gives you even more creative freedom.


So without further adieu, let me introduce you to the Designer Typeset Stamp Set. It’s based around a really great san serif font that will work well on just about any project. And then there are embellishments and shapes to take whatever you want to say to the next level. The possibilities are seriously endless.


This stamp set is item #132956 and is $13.95. We recommend clear block sizes A, B, G, F, and I (not included in the set).

I was sooooo excited to get home from work and have this arrive in my SU order! Now I can play with it myself!! I’ll be sure to post pictures when I have my own samples. *The photos at the top of this blog are from the SU website, made by one of the concept artists. Awesome, eh?

Stampin’ Up! may introduce more of the photopolymer stamps in the future, based on whether you all like these or not. So, let me know if you’re interested in ordering this set. You can shop in my online store 24/7 at

Until tomorrow, happy Stamping!!

Spring Fling… Thursday March 21st, 2013

easter blessings

Hello Stampers,
Well I must say that blogging every day is a real committment, I have a whole new appreciation for my uplines, sister demonstrators and all those other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who maintain their awesome blogs. My goal is to post at least once a day. Some days there are multiple things I want to say, but I don’t want to run out of things to blog about, so I’m only doing one a day for now.

On behalf of my Lynnzcrafter’s team, we would like to invite you to our first ever Spring Fling! It is a card making event on Thursday March 21st, 2013. It will run 6:30-9:30 pm (it is an “Open House” format, which means you should plan to arrive any time before 8 pm and you’ll have time to finish all 4 projects. Spring Fling will be at the West Glenville Fire House. The cost is $15 to make 4 cards, you will receive envelopes, email with photos and directions typed out for all cards we make, snacks and doorprizes! Also, if you place a $25 order or more, then you will not pay a class fee at all! That’s right- the class will be free! That’s just our way of saying thank you for joining us and for your business.

Because we need to order some of the supplies to be sure we have enough of everything, and to be sure we cut enough for everyone who is attending, we’d like RSVP’s by March 15th, 2013. Then, if room allows, we may be able to accommodate you if you respond by March 17th. The reason for this, is all of us Lynnzcrafter’s demonstrators work full time jobs. We are Stampin’ Up demonstrators on a part time basis, and usually have just the weekends to get together and do all our prep for events like this.

If we have to cancel the event due to winter weather (snow or ice), we’ll follow the Scotia-Glenville School District’s cancellation on the television…. and the event will be rescheduled. *The Sale-a-bration special will be over on Friday 3/22 sorry.

If for some reason you are unable to attend (you are sick, you have a sick child) then you will be responsible for your class fee and will receive it as a “To GO Kit”, this means you will receive all your supplies and can assemble your cards at home. Just like our in class option, if you put in a $25 or more order, you will receive your kit for free.

If you sign up to bring a friend, we’ll have a special thank you gift!
Any questions? Feel free to leave a comment here, or feel free to message me on facebook (Lynnzcrafters page) or email:

Hope you can join us, it will be a very fun night of stamping! If you have a child who is a responsible stamper, and you wish to pay the $15 fee for them to join us, we’d love to have them as well. Suggested ages are 8 and above, if the child is able to follow directions, work independently and respect the materials.

Each stamper will need to bring their “stamping supplies” or “go bag” (I was watching Criminal Minds and it reminded me of that when they have to grab their “go bags”…. isn’t Morgan a hunk? sorry, I digress) a Stamping “go bag” is your scissors, adhesives- snail, green bottle of glue, sticky strip, dimensionals- whatever you like to assemble your cards with and a bone folder. We will be putting glue sticks out on the table if you forget.
You might want to bring a camera, we will have a display area with other sample cards and items that you may photograph.

Well, that’s all for now. Please consider joining us for Spring Fling- we really would LOVE to stamp with you!!

Until tomorrow, happy stamping!
