We Celebrate On Fridays!!!

Posted on

We celebrate on Fridays because…..why not? We survived the week and made it to another weekend! For some that means relaxing and spending time stamping and for others that means enjoying the weather and spending time with family. What’s even better is when all of those things collide! Either way, we have a lot to celebrate!!!

August Laura's Loyal Stampers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

First, we have the August Laura’s Loyal Stampers Stickers!!! This is my reward program for all of my customers. I love giving back to those who love Stampin’ Up! as much as me. For every $40 order, you will receive a sticker and after 10 Stickers you get a $40 Gift Certificate. It doesn’t matter if it takes you 4 years or 4 months to earn this. I do all of the tracking for you! Just shop, earn, and enjoy!!!

Who else is loving those adorable little tags from the August Paper Pumpkin Kit??? I sure am! These have gone on lots of treats I’ve given out lately. I did a little Challenge for my Fabulous Friends Stamp Team and wrapped up their prizes!  Also, I used them for some of the prizes from the Virtual Girls Night Out Holiday Mini Catalog Party that I did on my Facebook Page earlier this week! It was so much fun and I hope everyone else enjoyed it as much as me.

2017-2019 In Color Bookmarks!!!

Posted on

I have had a lot of requests to do a video on my 2017-2019 In Color Bookmarks after showing them in the Up Close & Personal video that I did. I love hearing from you on what you would like to see so here you go!!!

2017-2019 In Color Bookmarks, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Aren’t these just beautiful? I made 50 of them for each Annual Catalog release and they go out with the first 50 catalogs. I love spoiling my stampers! 🙂

These are super easy to make especially when making them in bulk because assembly line it. First, I created my template in Word with all of the names of the 2017-2019 In Colors as well as a little Stampin’ Up logo and contact information. I was able to get 5 bookmarks per sheet. You can download that template here – In Color Bookmarks 2017! I left it in a Word Document so that you can change it up for your favorite colors or last years In Colors or even next years. Next I printed them out and cut them apart (2-1/4″ 7″). Then I stamped the flower from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in each color. I used the New 2017-2019 In Colors for my flowers! Again, I did this in an assembly line and stamped all of one color on each of them and then moved to the next color.

Now that the insert is all complete, I slide it into the Bookmark Sleeve. I picked these up on Amazon. You can check them out here! Sometimes they can be a little sticky when sliding it in the first time as the sleeves are static cling a bit. This is another reason I cut my bookmarks to be a bit smaller than the sleeve so they slide in well. Finally, I added some ribbon to the top loop. I used the Finely Woven Ribbon which comes in each of the In Colors. I used about 5-6″ of  ribbon, folded it in half and pushed that fold through the hole from front to back. Then I pulled the ends through that loop that was created and pull tight. This gives that nice little ribbon accent without tying a knot or using adhesive.

If you would like to see this all in action, check out the video tutorial below or click here! Be sure to give it a thumbs up if you liked it and subscribe if you are new. Also, let me know in the comments below if there is something you would like to do on the next Video – a product up close and personal, a technique, answer stamping questions, stamping tips, etc! I would love to hear from you!

Happy Stampin’
