There is so much to be thankful today and every day! From the big things to the little things that we have, they are all very special and wonderful! This year, I thought I would share a few new things I’m thankful for.

~I’m super thankful for my amazing Doctor and all the nurses and staff throughout my pregnancy, 33 hours of labor, and C-section delivery.

~Of course, Brad and I are thankful to have a beautiful, healthy baby girl! She is our whole world and we love her more and more with each day!

~Even more this year, I am thankful for Stampin’ Up and this amazing opportunity. Being able to work from home and on my own schedule has been amazing over the past year. Having the ability to share with I love and love what I do is something I’m forever grateful for!

~I’m thankful for Stampin’ Up having their 30th Birthday Party in Orlando, Florida. I’m sure we would have not gone to Florida or Epcot with a 5 month old if it weren’t for Stampin’ Up luring us there! 🙂 Thank you for the amazing opportunity and chance to get out of the house and out of town!

~As always, I’m so thankful for all of you. My followers, my customers, and those who watch my videos…you all are so amazing and mean the world to me! Thank You!!!

I hope you have an amazing day today and stay safe if you are traveling! Check back tomorrow for Stampin’ Up’s Online Extravaganza!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Orlando Day 2 Recap!!!

Posted on

Today, I’m sharing the Orlando Day 2 Recap!!! There was a lot more stamping, seeing new products, and winning fabulous stuff on this day!!!

Orlando Day 2 Recap, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Oh my goodness was I blown away by some of these stamping projects. Shelli’s watercoloring and layering is so amazing and I can only hope to color like that. I did try to take notes on how she does it. I have lots of practice to do! 🙂 There are lots of great masculine sets coming soon and we all know I struggle with man cards. Flowers, flowers, and more flowers make my heart happy!!!

Fabulous Friends Team, www.LaurasStampPad.com

While there is a lot of stamping going on, there is also a lot of chatting, meeting new people, snapping photos, and so much more! The people make this even more fabulous! I tried taking pictures with those in my Fabulous Friends Team, LovenStampfuls Team, and ImPECKable Stampers Team. Of course, I got pictures with others too! Meeting new people from all over the world is just amazing. The green ears were for all of our team so we could find each other in the sea of 6000 people. The bottom right photo is me and the 6 other ladies in our team that earned the Greek Isles Trip and we got to walk across stage together. It was AMAZING!!!

Orlando Day 1 Recap!!!

Posted on

We made it home and it’s snowing…..so not cool!!! I am missing Orlando weather already. Here is our Orlando Day 1 Recap!!! We went to Epcot courtesy of Stampin’ Up and it was amazing!!!!

Orlando Day 1 Recap, www.LaurasStampPad.com

It was super magical and so easy! Parking was a breeze. There was a tram that took us right to the entrance and then it was like we had the whole world in front of us. I remember looking at Brad and saying why does it seem everyone knows where they are going and we are like oh my what do we do first. We headed around the world looking at everything and smashing pennies. We got a total of 19 smashed pennies so of course I had to buy a Disney Penny Passport. Rapunzel and Flynn chatted with us and we got their autograph! Claire did so well and enjoyed looking at everything and everyone. It was HOT like upper 80’s and real feel of mid 90’s! I was loving it!!!

Stampin’ Up released the NEW Occasions Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure to all of us. AMAZING!!! My favorite Sale-A-Bration item already is that amazing ribbon. There are 5 spools of the most beautiful spring colors. Butterflies and gingham are hot hot hot too! Check back tomorrow for more samples, ideas, and goodies. I have millions of photos to sort through and all kinds of things!

I’ve Earned Stampin’ Up’s Incentive Trip!!!

Posted on

Stampin’ Up’s year ended in September and I’m excited to say, “I’ve Earned Stampin’ Up’s Incentive Trip!!!

I've Earned Stampin' Up's Incentive Trip, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I couldn’t have done it without all of you! Thank you all so much for your love and support all year long! Thank you for being patient with me lately now that Claire is taking up more of my time. I’m still trying to find a good balance and hope to get there soon! You all mean the world to me whether you are reading this, ordering supplies, attending classes, reaching out to ask a question, or following me on Social Media! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

4 months, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here’s a little update on little Miss Claire who no longer thinks naps are necessary. Luckily she sleeps well at night but the no naps during the day is a struggle for all of us for sure. She is growing strong and healthy which is fabulous and took her 4 month shots very well. It sure breaks this Momma’s heart though. I feel like the older she gets the more she looks at us like why did you let that girl hurt me. Pretty sure I have cried every time she has gotten shots. Not looking forward to the 6 month appointment.

If you are crafting this weekend, let me know in the comments below what you are working on. If you need to order anything, click here to start shopping!

Have an amazing weekend! Happy Stampin’

It’s My Birthday Today!!!!

Posted on

Happy Birthday to ME!!!! It’s My Birthday Today!!! I love to celebrate all month long but today is officially the day!

It's My Birthday Today, www.LaurasStampPad.com

On my birthday, I like to share a little bit about me. Whether you have been following me for a few years now or this is the first post you are reading, thank you for following along and I hope you enjoy learning more about the person here at Laura’s Stamp Pad. You can check out some of my past birthday posts here and here! Enjoy a little bit more about me:

A lot happened in my 32nd year of life!!! It was just a little over a week after my 32nd birthday that we found out we were pregnant. As my belly grew, my love for the color pink never changed…..as is obvious in the photos above. I think I will always love the color pink!

Also, I love taking pictures and having my picture taken. Unfortunately, those two things don’t always go together. I tend to be behind the camera most of the time so there are more pictures of everyone else and not as many of me. This is probably why I wanted to take weekly bump photos and made my husband do them every Monday.

I am a bit of a freak and overthink everything which made me scared to death of pregnancy through most of my 20’s but I always wanted a baby of my own. I babysat since the moment I could stay home alone. In college, I went on a trip with a big family as the nanny. There are 8 nieces and nephews in my family and I couldn’t wait to have a child call me Mommy rather than always Auntie. I do take my duties as an Auntie very seriously though….love them all so much! My pregnancy went very smooth and was great….nothing to worry about! Another thing about me…..I have no patience usually! This made waiting 41 weeks and 3 days really hard!! But that’s not all, even after my water broke, I had to wait another 33 hours of laboring before Baby Girl arrived. 🙂

Being a Mom is hard but so amazing! I love it so much! It has made a big change in my daily life with trying to nurse, snuggle, stare at that adorable smile, and get all of my work done for my stamping business. I’m still working on getting it all done and find a nice routine!

Last year was amazing and life changing….here’s to a wonderful 33rd year!!!

BIRTHDAY SPECIAL: All orders placed today will earn a FREE GIFT from me as well as DOUBLE Laura’s Loyal Stampers Stickers!!! I have lots of goodies like ribbon, clear blocks, embossing powder, stamps, and more. I will randomly select a gift and send it out to everyone who orders today! Click here to start shopping!

Happy Stampin’ & Shoppin’

Alaskan Love!!!

Posted on

Happy Friday!!! Are you ready for a fabulous weekend?? I sure am! We have no plans so lots of relaxing, baby snuggles, and maybe check out this festival in the next town over. Today, I’m sharing some Alaskan Love!!!

Alaskan Love, www.LaurasStampPad.com

We were not able to go on the Stampin’ Up Alaskan Cruise because little Claire was too young. PS: In case you didn’t know, infants under 6 months (and some cruises it’s a year) can’t go along. We were super bumped to put it lightly as this was a trip we were so excited to go on. Stampin’ Up was amazing and I was able to get the pillow gifts from each night on the cruise even though we couldn’t go. Let me just say WOW and how loved I feel from such an amazing company. I’m so excited to wear, use, and show off all of my goodies. There was a lot of Holiday Mini Catalog product in there as well which I will be using in upcoming classes and events!

Also, wasn’t my husband the sweetest to take these photos of me. He actually asked if I would wait to open the box till he got home so he could take them. I’m wondering if it was that or if he was just as excited to see everything?!?!

That’s all I have for this fabulous Friday! Don’t forget about the $5 Bonus Bucks, Color Your Season Bundle, and as always Laura’s Loyal Stampers Stickers. Have an amazing weekend! I’ll see you back here on Monday! Happy Stampin’

Vacation Stamping School 2018!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday everyone!!! I hope you had an amazing weekend!!! Mine was full and fabulous! I attended Vacation Stamping School 2018 Friday evening and Saturday morning. This is a gathering of demonstrators in our group for all kinds of stamping fun. There were around 100 in attendance and so much excitement!!!

Vacation Stamping School 2018, www.LaurasStampPad.com

There were so many amazing samples, demonstrations, and ideas all over the room. The talent some of these ladies have is just incredible. It still boggles my mind that simple stamps, ink, and paper can be so much more!!! There is still so much to learn and I love it! I can’t wait to share all these ideas with all of you too!

Of course my favorite part of the whole event was the people. Seeing Shannon West was like Ahhhhhhhh! She is so fabulous! I remember meeting her and getting a photo with her back in January 2011 at Leadership in Nashville…..AND SHE REMEMBERED TOO!!! How amazing is that?!?!?!

Me & Shannon, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Throw Back….Monday! 🙂 Here we are in January 2011 and the center photo in the above collage is from this past weekend!! Shannon, you are amazing and inspire me and I feel like you are my Stampin’ Up celebrity! 🙂 Not that all of the other ladies at the event weren’t as well though! These ladies were from many different states, all gathering together and sharing stamping tips and chatting. We are one big family. A big shout out to Glenda Travelstead too for getting Claire to sleep on Friday night! Claire enjoyed your snuggles!

Now I’m off to the stamp room during nap time to play with my new product I won for Prize Patrol and to go through all the samples and ideas to start playing! Eeeeee!

I hope you all have a wonderful day! PS: If you would like to join this amazing family of fun and inspiration, join my team by clicking here!!! You won’t regret it!

Happy Stampin’
