My 2019-2020 New Catalog Pre-Order Arrived!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! We are taking a break for a hot minute from Technique Tuesday to show off some of the 2019-2020 New Catalog Products!!!

My 2019-2020 New Catalog Pre-Order Arrived, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I did a complete unboxing and reveal of my pre-order so you could see all of the fabulous products. The 2019-2020 In Colors are super fabulous too! Let me know which one you like the best!

Rococo Rose is just fun to say!!! This is a pale pink/purple which is great for floral looks and a feminine style card! I think it will coordinate really well with many other colors too!

Terracotta Tile is a coral/burnt orange color. This color again will be great for flowers. Maybe I just think any color is great for flowers!?!?! This will also make a great neutral background color.

Pretty Peacock is a beautiful deep blue/green. Sometimes I think it looks like a forest green and other times I see more blue.

Seaside Spray is this fabulous light blue color with a hint of gray. This will be a fabulous background blue, masculine card blue, and work for florals too! 🙂

Purple Posy is the perfect light purple to coordinate with Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape. I can’t wait to use these colors together!

Storage By Stampin’ Up!

Posted on

Hello Stampers! If you have followed me for even a week, you know I love storage, organization, and I’m a bit of an OCD freak when it comes to placement of stuff. So of course I was super excited about the Storage By Stampin’ Up! Hello, it’s perfect. But I got it and now here is my honest review!!!

Storage By Stampin' Up, www.LaurasStampPad.com

First thing I love about these things are that they can be stacked in any increments. This means that it fits anywhere. I hate when I find a cool storage piece but it is just a hair too big for my shelf or it fits the shelf but there is 3 inches of wasted space at the top. My craft room is “full” so I don’t want to waste space anywhere. I’m sure some of you can relate. I am able to have 11 trays for the Stampin’ Blends Markers on my shelf and it fits perfectly and all of my markers fit. It’s perfect and I love that.

The plastic is much thicker and sturdier than I anticipated. I was afraid they would be a little flimsy or easily crack/break. That doesn’t seem to be the case as they are thick and seem really strong.

One fear that I would have is that if it were to fall off my table or something, I’m betting the trays would pop apart and you would like trays and markers all over. This isn’t a deal breaker because lets be honest, I hope they never fall and of course if they did it would be a mess. Since the trays just lock/sit in place, they could pop a part if they fell over. Again, not a deal breaker but it is something that crossed my mind.


Over all I love the ease of putting them together. I love the organization and ability to customize your space to fit anywhere. I also love the options for the toppers. The solid topper is on my blends since it fits perfectly on my shelf but the little trays are perfect for ink refills on the ink pad trays or just on your desk. It’s just awesome to be able to purchase something with options to fit your space and style and not be stuck with 1 thing! Click the links below to get your Storage By Stampin’ Up!

What Are Cling Stamps???

Posted on

Okay so I’m super behind on posting this because Cling Stamps came out in January. I didn’t want to leave you all hanging and you might still be wondering. What Are Cling Stamps??? Today I’m going to tell you!

What are cling stamps, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Cling Stamps came out in the Occasions Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochure! You may have not even noticed because they look very similar to the Clear Mount Stamps. They have the red rubber and the sticker on the back. The big difference is that sticker. It is SUPER sticky and it won’t fall off your clear block anymore. Many stampers had issues where the Clear Mount Stamps would fall off the block and it was frustrating. Stampin’ Up heard us and fixed it!

Assembling the Cling Stamps is the same as it was with the Clear Mount Stamps. Simply peel off the back of the foam stamp. Then peel off the back of the sticker and place it down. Since it is SUPER sticky, be sure that once you stick it down, just go for it. There is no picking it back off. If the sticker is a bit off just trim it. It’s okay!

Another big tip is to be careful when pulling the stamp off of the block. Since it is stuck on there really well, you will want to ease it off or use your Take You Pick Tool. This tool makes breaking that suction deal and taking it off super easy! If you just pull, it could tear at the foam.

All Kinds of Butterflies!!!

Posted on

Do you love butterflies??? I find them to be so beautiful, fun to watch, a sign of hope, and Spring!!! Today, I’m going to show you all kinds of butterflies that you can create with the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch!

All Kinds of Butterflies, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The Butterfly Gala Stamp Set has 4 styles of butterflies that are each intricate and stunning. They look amazing stamped in 1 color on white or colored cardstock. You can also color them in with Watercolor Pencils, Blends, or other watercolor tools. Another option is to stamp the solid butterfly stamp to fill in the butterfly with color. This can be done in the same color but stamped off once for a lighter shade or it can be in a different color. I love how the butterfly images are a big one and little one combined. This way they go into the punch perfectly and you can make multiples really fast! I love it!!!

Reveal of the Incredible Like You Project Kit!!!

Posted on

Project Kits are awesome because all the supplies are pre-cut and prepared for you to just relax and create! The Incredible Like You Project Kit is even more fabulous because it has bright colors and fabulous designs. The moment I saw it, I knew I had to have it. You all know I love bright colors!!!

Incredible Like You Project Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

They are so beautiful and really simple to assemble. I love the greetings in the coordinating Incredible Like You Stamp Set! Perfect for any type of card/occasion!

A few tips I wanted to share as I put this kit together. First off, I’m not a fan of Multi-purpose Liquid Glue. I tend to use to much and make a big mess. I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen instead. Also, you do not need to add adhesive to every spot of the die-cut pieces. I did the corners on the left two cards (adding Snail to the center of the blue floral one). For the oranges/lemons card, I did the corners and then a few random dots here and there. Click here to get your kit!!

Stamp all of your greetings at once and then start your assembly. This will make it all go much faster. The last tip is to have fun with it. Feel free to use other favorite greetings of yours or different colors. Enjoy it!!!

Reveal of the Precious Parcel Sale-A-Bration Card Kit!!!

Posted on

Happy 2019!!!!!! That means that Sale-A-Bration is coming!!!! On Thursday, the Occasions Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration begin!!!! Today, I wanted to share with you the Precious Parcel Sale-A-Bration Card Kit. This kit is one of the items that you can pick as your Sale-A-Bration item with a $50 order!

Precious Parcel Card Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I think this card kit is super cute. It is very easy to assemble because there is no stamping or adhesive required. It comes with everything you need. This also makes it the perfect kit for beginners or to gift to a beginner. I may not be a beginner but I love it too because I can create it quickly to have cards on hand. I love the pocket style and think it is perfect for Spring because you could add a little packet of seeds in there. You could also do a tea bag or gift card. It’s just so fabulous!

Pocket Parcel Cards, www.LaurasStampPad.com

These cards are super easy to assemble but I have a few pointers. The instructions just have a photo so here you go. Be sure to put the twine through the holes and tie it into a bow before dealing the pocket closed. This makes it so much easier to get the twine in. Also, the pocket is popped out a bit so the card slides in and out easily. When you go to fold on the score lines, take note of that second score line that makes it like a super skinny little box. This will also help line up the little notch on the fold that pops out towards the top. It still works just fine if you don’t make that little popped up box though……I did it! 🙂 Always here you all to make the mistakes and share them with you. lol
