My Review of the Take Your Pick Tool!!!

Posted on

Today, I’m sharing with you my review of the Take Your Pick Tool!!! I finally took it out of the box to use and now I’m in love!!!

My Review of the Take Your Pick Tool, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This little tool is just $10 (US) and has so many little gadgets and uses. The left side is the putty and a refill. This is used for picking up little things like sequins or beads or die cuts. Once the putty isn’t tacky anymore, just advance out a little more. There are also refills for this to buy too but the 2 that come with it should last you awhile.

The other end (right side) has a little pancake flipper tool which is great for picking up a rhinestone or pearl and setting it on your project. It’s slim wide base allows it to get under and pick up the adhesive under it as well. If you rotate the pancake flipper to the unlock position, it comes out and the other end is a poker tool. This is great for starting a hole or making a marker spot to cut or position in that area. Laying in front of the tool is another piece that can be locked into that end. It has a stylus on both ends – big and small. These are great for scoring cardstock or outlining an image.

Recently I was die cutting a lot of these adorable little labels from the Stitched Labels Framelits. You have to be very delicate popping it out because otherwise the little loops will rip or sometimes there are indention marks from pressing on it. I slid the little pancake flipper around the framelit and eased it out perfectly. It was easy and I didn’t ruin/rip any of them. I was sold for sure after that!

Template For The Stamparatus!!!

Posted on

After posting the wreath card on Tuesday using the Stamping In The Round Technique, I had lots of people request a template tutorial! I’m always happy to help you all out so here it is – a template for the Stamparatus!!!

Template For The Stamparatus, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This template I created on Stampin’ Up Grid Paper but you can also use just a piece of printer paper like the one below. First up, I found the center from both sides and created that cross line in purple. Next, I took a scrap piece of paper in a square and placed it in the center. You can start with whatever size of square you would like. This square is the size of cardstock you will be stamping on for your project. The one above is a 3″ square down to a 2-1/4″ square. Trace the square centered and then rotate it into a diamond and trace again.

Square Template, www.LaurasStampPad.com

After you create the first square centered and in a diamond, trim off a 1/4″ from the top and one of the sides. Line up the square template in the center and trace along the edges. Keep going until you have the smallest square you need.

That is how I created the template. I’m thinking I will laminate this so that it is protected from ink or ripping and I can use it over and over again. Check out the wreath card that I created using this template here! Also, stay tuned as I have another fabulous sample coming soon!

Tin Tile Embossing Folder!!!

Posted on

Oh my goodness, my favorite product by far in the Holiday Mini Catalog is the Tin Tile Embossing Folder. It is just stunning on a project and looks amazing with foils!

Tin Tile Embossing Folder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The intricate details in the folder are just amazing! I love all the texture and the elegant look! To me, this folder was meant to be for foil papers!!! It’s just stunning! As you can see I used different foils in the photo above. I even used this new Galvanized Metallic Paper!!! It’s like the perfect brushed silver look.

Copper & Champagne, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Then I had some fun adding some black ink with a Sponge Dauber for a more rustic look. I really like the look on some of the foils and not so much on others.

Galvanized Metallic, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The Galvanized Metallic looks super cool since it has that rustic look and a less shine and glitz.

Silver & Gold, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I kinda love this technique a bit! Of course some of them are darker and others are lighter. I simply rubbed some black on very quickly. I could always go back and add more or keep it light and dark for a more rustic look! Which one is your favorite?? Let me know in the comments below!

Check back tomorrow to see a sample using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder!!! Don’t have this folder in your collection yet, click the photo below to get it!!

Happy September!!!!

Posted on

It’s Tuesday and it’s September! Is anyone else like mind blown about all of this?? It feels like Monday. I don’t want to give in that it’s September and summer is ending but I guess I will embrace it. Happy September!!!

Happy September, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here I’m going to ease into the Holiday Mini Catalog and season with the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper. This paper has that rustic, cozy feel in my opinion. Those plaids make me think of a warm flannel blanket and I love to snuggling with a blanket on any day. I love the white woodgrain looks because I’m not a fan of brown even if it is woodgrain. 🙂 Anyone else with me on that one? Do you like a white wash or white trim verses a wood trim? Let me know in the comments below!

The start patterns in this pack are fabulous too because I feel like those are versatile for any style of card throughout the year. The stripes are that way too! To me a good pack of paper has lots of versatile looks – ones for a specific occasion as well as basics. This one totally does.

Tomorrow, the Holiday Mini Catalog officially comes out and we can all start ordering these amazing goodies. I have been posting the Designer Series Paper Packs from the catalog on my YouTube Channel. This way you can see the full sheets and how amazing they truly are. Today, I’m sharing the Festive Farmhouse pack.

Holiday Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper Reveals!!!

Posted on

Hello, stampers!!! Today is the start of my Holiday Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper Reveals!!! I will be posting videos showing off the different paper packs from the Holiday Mini Catalog on my YouTube Channel. This is a great way for me to show off the full piece of paper so you can see just how fabulous each of these sheets are. The little swatch in the catalog sometimes just doesn’t show it all!

Holiday Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper Reveals, www.LaurasStampPad.com

 

I’m starting off the series with this Halloween themed paper. Some of you may know, I’m not a big Halloween fan. I know….gasp! It seems you are either a HUGE fan or you aren’t a fan at all. I’m the second one. Since I am not a big fan but still like to make treats for my nieces and nephews, I got just this pack of Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper and then I’ll use some greetings from a set that I have like Itty Bitty Greetings or a Paper Pumpkin Set.

I really like this paper because there are only a few sheets that are super Halloween-y. The frogs I think would make a super cute kid card. Pumpkins are great for Fall cards. Those stars on the far left look very fun for a wizard or starry night card. Polka dots and stripes are perfect for any occasion. When the paper is super versatile like this, I am more drawn to buying it because then I know I can use it for multiple card styles.

The Holiday Mini Catalog is available to order from starting on September 5th so get those wish lists started! Also, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel as I will be posting more of the Designer Series Paper Packs on there over the next week or so.

September Hostess Promotion, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I like this pack of Dashing Along Designer Paper because it’s only Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green. That makes coordination and supplies easy to pick out and use. Also, I think the patterns are great for Christmas but also other occasions. There are 4 sheets each of the 3 double sided designs which is great for making multiples cards of the same design.

The first piece on the left is very elegant and perfect for Anniversary or Weddings cards. The diagonal stripes in the middle would be great for man cards. The stars on the far right are perfect for birthdays!

My dates in September are filling fast. I only have week days available but I can also do catalog parties or online parties. Let me know if you are interested in having a party so you can earn this fabulous paper! You can also earn it with a single order of $250 as well.
