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!

Top 5 Blog Posts From the 2016-2017 Catalog!!!

Posted on

I thought I would go through and see what the Top 5 Blog Posts are from the past year – 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!!!! I wonder if they are some of my favorites?!?! Do they include items that are retiring?!?!?!

Something Borrowed Card Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Something Borrowed One Sheet Wonder Set! Well I am not surprised to see this was #1!!!! I know that you all love this One Sheet Wonder so very much and look at this post a lot, everyday!

Top 5 Blog Posts, www.LaurasStampPad.com

December 2016 Paper Pumpkin – This one surprised me a bit because I posted 12 Paper Pumpkin Kits in the past year and this was the best. I think it was because I did an alternative to what the kit actually was intended for. I made cards rather than a mini album!

Flower OSW, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Flower Bouquet One Sheet Wonder – not surprised to see another One Sheet Wonder! Also, this paper was just stunning! I loved it so much because you all know how much I love flowers and all the color!

Work of Art Wreath, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Work of Art Holiday Cards! The Work of Art Stamp Set is so versatile and amazing! I’m excited this is one that you all love too! This set is not retiring which is super fabulous!

Fishy Shaker Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Fishy Shaker Card! This card is super cute and fun! Shaking all of the pieces around and seeing those little fish makes this card a major WOW!!!

The next few posts that were favorites included more of the One Sheet Wonders! I know how much you all love those. (SNEAK PEAK: I have another one coming next week!!!) 🙂

Let me know which of these is your favorite in the comments below! If your favorites wasn’t listed above, let me know which one it is! I can’t wait to share lots of samples with the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog! Until then, don’t forget that there are lots of retiring items in the current catalog. Some are even on super sale! Click here to start shopping!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday!

Fresh Florals, Color Theory, Stamps, & Bling!!!

Posted on

Fresh Florals, Color Theory, Stamps, & Bling are just a few of the amazing things I got in my Pre-Order for the New Catalog!!! Here is a few sneak peaks!!!

Fresh Florals, Color Theory, Stamps, & Bling, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Oh my goodness this is just a pile of heaven!!!! Here are a few of my favorites that I quickly picked out!

In-Colors Collection, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This designer series paper is just stunning! It has the same patterns as the current Floral Boutique and I LOVE IT! Note: there are distressed looks to the paper where some spots are lighter or splotchy and this is suppose to be like that! The Ribbons are perfect because they aren’t too wide and they are soft and flexible for tying knots and using on projects! Love love love!!!

Color Theory, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This  is another favorite of mine – The Color Theory Suite! I love these colors – Berry Burst, Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive. The cool designer paper, fabulous ribbon (which I realized is Bermuda  Bay and doesn’t coordinate like the others) and those glimmer enamel shapes. YUM! Glimmer Enamel Shapes…..like WOW!!!!

Stamps, www.LaurasStampPad.com

These are some of the stamp sets. Many of these come as a Bundle with coordinating Framelits or Punches! Now I need to find time to PLAY!!!

Bling & Baby Bows, www.LaurasStampPad.com

And then there are amazing accessories. Bling, Bows, and Punches are some of my absolute favorites! I’m super excited about that label punch since my favorite Decorative Label Punch is retiring. Now you have bows made already for you! How amazing is that?!?!?! I flipped over the second one so you could see that they already have adhesive on the back, just peel off the sticky. Love it!!!!

Can’t wait till June 1st? You can always join Stampin’ Up and get these products in your Starter Kit! You get to pick out $125 in any product you would like (retiring, current items, and sneak peak items) for just $99 and FREE SHIPPING! Click here for more information or reach out if you have any questions at all.

Ronald McDonald Box of Goodies!!!

Posted on

I have been donating to the Ronald McDonald House for a few years now. I just love to box up those goodies each time! You can see some of the past ones here, here, and here!

Ronald McDonald, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This month, I was able to send a box full of cards to the local Ronald McDonald House! The little house that sits in our kitchen filled up with tabs and I was able to send those, too! Every time the little house fills up, I send a batch! I can’t thank my fellow stampers for their support as well. Many of you sent me cards (homemade and store bought) to send and I couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you!!! As always, those of you who donate cards, tabs, or any other items will receive a $10 Gift Certificate from me. You can use it on your next stamp order or one of my classes!

Ronald McDonald Donation, www.LaurasStampPad.com

In case you aren’t aware of what the Ronald McDonald House is or does, I thought I would share. It is a house located near a hospital for those to live in while with a loved on in the hospital. Many time these people are in the hospital for an extended stay. It is hard to get a hotel or travel back and forth each day just so they can be with their loved ones. Ronald McDonald House offers a place for these people to sleep and eat and get rest!

I had the opportunity twice to go to the local Ronald McDonald House to provide a meal. I did a breakfast on a Saturday once and a Dinner on a weekday once. This was an amazing experience. I got to sit and chat with some of the families and I really felt like I was making a difference. If you would like more information on this or to donate, feel free to reach out to me here or let me know in the comments below!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! See you back here on Monday!
