Fall Fun Bingo Night! 🍁

Well we had just a spectacular time last night at our fall fun bingo night! I rented my church hall so we could fit lots of friends who wanted to attend. I am so blessed to have the support and interest from all these wonderful ladies, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the delicious snacks you brought, yummy beverages, the delicious treats! Also for my helpers I could not do it without you!! I had my friend Laurie helped me with all the big shot work ahead of time, kudos to Nancy, Addie, MaryBeth, and Laurie for helping me set up the room. And deep thanks for Brigid and Sue who stayed to help with cleanup and put the room back together. I am so deeply grateful. ❤️

Because we had 25 ladies register in advance I needed to have five make and take projects as I had five people at each table. That is one more project than we normally do. But no one complained

This beautiful card is a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) of my friend and fellow demonstrator Michelle I. She did this water coloring using our pencils with the new stamp set pleasant pheasants. {I was sad to have to tell the ladies that the chicken wire elements is turned off right now …they were so popular we sold out of them in just a couple weeks of this catalog being active.}

Now this sweet card I received as a swap in the mail from another demonstrator named Keri B and I did not have the stamps that she used on the original card so I substituted our burlap background stamp and just changed it up a bit.

I saw this card come through my Instagram feed earlier this month and decided to CASE (I knew it would be a perfect bingo card and one of the ladies to have a chance to use our alcohol markers called blends). the original creator was Alisa T. Can you see how beautiful the texture is from our new tin tile textured impression embossing folder? It looks just like the old fashion tin ceilings they used to have.

The fourth and final card was one I came up with recently when I had time to play in my craft room … I used a new set called peaceful place and it’s in the annual catalog. I decided to use it to showcase the beautiful fall foliage. To get the effect of the wet riverbed are used are fine tip glue pen and just spread some lightly on after the card was water colored and assembled.

Last but not least, take a look at this adorable little take out treat holder- it uses just a half of a sheet of card stock and I absolutely love our new toil and trouble DSP paired with the new spooky sweet bundle, aren’t those bats adorable?

And now are you ready to see who all the winners were last night?

I actually didn’t get a picture of two people last night, congratulations Marie who won the gift certificate and congratulations to Patty who won the final raffle of the night (which was a draw from all the tickets given out for attending, bringing a snack, dressing in fall clothing, and ordering from me last night.)

Well actually some people are little camera shy and didn’t want their photo taken, I understand.

I feel so blessed that 10 out of these 25 ladies are Stampin’ Up! demonstrator’s and came out to support me and I couldn’t be more thankful! Thank you everyone for your interest in stamping bingo nights, the next one is Friday night October 19! Let me know if you’re interested in attending and I will get you all the details.

Fall Fun Cards in Corinth!

I was so honored and excited to be invited to have a fun fall card making night at my friend Wendy’s massage studio up in Corinth. (Amethyst Springs). I invited some ladies that I knew who lived up that way and Wendy posted it on her Facebook page and we found some crafty ladies who came that we met for the first time. Wendy made a yummy dinner of meatballs and veggie lasagna, bruschetta and salad and then she had cookies and cheesecake for dessert. We made four cards and everyone enjoyed the evening so much they asked me to come back and do Christmas cards, so we will be getting together again on Thursday night November 29, let me know if you’d like to be invited to this Christmas card get together.

Here are the four cards we made last night:

This card is a CASE of one of the beautiful cards my downline Lisa made for me last month. I modified it as we were using the sunflowers in another card. The secret to making these adorable little fences was a dryer sheet under the card stock. It worked like a charm.

This was a card I created and used for my card swap by mail with 21 other demonstrators that I participated in last month.

This card was modified slightly from a card I received from Sandy C. in a card swap by mail with 21 other demonstrators that I participated in last month.

Wendy gave me this adorable burlap adorned photo holder that worked out perfectly to hold my sample card. Specially came in handy since I forgot my giant close pins that I normally use to keep cards up high so everyone can see them.

What do you think? I always love to hear from you and see what you think of the cards, is there anything you would do differently?

Way To Go Day!

Hi friends, I am slowly catching up on all the blog posts that I wanted to write. I recently had my quarterly rewards day for the top four on my team. This one was a Christmas themed event and I feature all new products from the 2018 holiday catalog. I had picked them up some souvenirs when I was in Alaska, cute little Christmas ornaments. I always like to give them some little gifts as a thank you for all their hard work from the previous quarter.

I broke out my Christmas dishes for this occasion, forgot to take picture of the yummy dinner I made. my friend has her own small business making dipped berries, cake balls, and now she’s getting into dipped apples. This was a delicious little end to our meal. Thanks Tie for the great treats! You can find her on social media @Tieberrysweats ! The girls loved the light up shadowbox and each one put her on special twist on her project. This quarter the top four were Amye, Lisa, Kim, and Tiffany but Lisa was unable to make it so I made her projects for her I found these shadow boxes and the mini twinkling lights at AC Moore in Saratoga. The vellum worked out perfectly to hide the little village of houses … I was going for a look of Santas reindeer flying over the houses.

I would love to hear from you, what do you think of my dashing dear light up box? All supplies used are Stampin’ Up! let me know if you’d like to place an order or feel free to go to my online store.

Stamping Bingo!

Hi friends, we had such an awesome bingo party the other day and the theme was 80s! Look at these cool props, I had the winners take a picture with their prize and their favorite prop. And here are the lineup of all the prizes, everything is from the brand new catalog plus some stamping essentials. I love to mix it up and have a variety of bundles for these wonderful prizes,

My niece Claire came over to help me do all the big shot pieces, stuff the envelopes, make the goody bags, and assemble these cute neon bracelets for everyone.

I love some of the outfits people wore, they always get an extra raffle ticket for the final drawing if they stick to the theme in their outfit and or snack. It is always one of the highlights of my week when I know I’m going to have bingo.

I was pretty tickled pink that I was able to wear my 80s outfit that I purchased for our Stampin Up Center stage event in April. Neon leg warmers, fishnet stockings, earrings, bracelets, a little cross between the material girl/Madonna and flash dance.

I love having a theme for my monthly bingo event the next one is Fall Fest!

My monthly stamping bingo is a very popular event and I typically don’t even have a chance to advertise as it fills up from the group of women who attend, they almost always fill up for the next month. But luckily in order to accommodate everyone who would like to play bingo, I rented my church hall for the next one which is Friday night September 21. This registration is open until Tuesday, September 11. I had quite a few people who said they were interested on our Facebook group I’ll be contacting them to see if they are attending or not. So I still have seats contact me if you’d like more info!

Stamping bingo is a super fun night out! Hope you can join us!

I totally don’t know what happened to this blog post I thought I had scheduled it to go off but it never posted. I am going to chalk this up to technological error.

Thanks so much for reading this blog!

They Surprised Me!

So Thursday night I headed off to Lisa’s house, one of my downline who volunteered to host our monthly team meeting. Little did I know that she decided to turn this into a surprise party for me in reaching the Gold Level with Stampin’ Up! (Which happened last Friday).

To say I was surprised is an understatement, and I truly felt so much love from everyone there and I am so deeply grateful and blessed to have this group of women in my life. Whoever would have thought a few stamps, ink, and paper almost 10 years ago would turn into a marvelous community of women who I consider my family?? My team is my tribe, and I am so blessed.

I rounded the corner onto her street and saw gigantic balloons spelling out the word GOLD; there were streamers, balloons, flowers, lights and everybody there was in on it!! They really surprised me! I have been on cloud nine all weekend and truly feel blessed to be the leader of this fabulous group of women called Lynnzcrafters! ❤️

Amye brought these fabulous gold photo frames and I took pictures with anyone who wanted. Some people are camera shy and I respect that.

Lisa had arranged with everyone to bring side dishes, she had a delicious cake made by a fabulous local baker; and Kara grilled our meat to perfection.

Lisa also prepared the card projects for our stamping time together and she gifted me with all the cards! It was an absolutely perfect night to stamp outside and enjoy the beautiful weather and togetherness!

I also received some fabulous gifts and handmade cards from these delightful women. Look at how they spoiled me:

I have to say I never would have turned cold if Jessica had not promoted to silver last Friday which triggered Lisa’s promotion to Silver elite, without both of those actions I would never have achieved the goal title. So to say I am grateful and feel so blessed is an understatement.

Heartfelt congratulations to both of you ladies for your new titles!

I came home late that night and set everything up on my hutch in my dining room so I could continue to enjoy their generosity.

We sure missed everyone who couldn’t be there that night, and one of our newest team members arrived a little late and I didn’t get her in any photos. Can you believe that there are 28 of us +2 adoptees? That means there are 30 Lynnzcrafters now, and growing. I am going to have to rent the church hall for next months get together so we are all comfortable my house is too small to fit us all.

I hope you enjoyed looking at these photos, would you like to join us? I would love to welcome you to our Lynnzcrafters Stampin’ Up! family!!

Have a wonderful day!
