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.

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!

2018 Holiday Mini Catalog Haul, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Oh my goodness, you all have got to see these fabulous products. There are flowers and bling and die cuts and so much more!!! Here are a few of my favorites that I can’t wait to play with first:

~All is Bright Designer Paper – it has amazing photographic Christmas images that are just stunning and only need a greeting to make an amazing card!

~Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes – I LOVE enamel shapes and the different images and dots are perfect for lots of different styles of cards!

~Suite Season Washi Tape – There is gold, silver, and copper foil in these rolls. Bling Bling!

~Peaceful Noel Stamp Set and coordinating Sprig Punch (Bundle & Save 10%) – I love the greenery pieces and even more the punch. Punching is so much quicker than running a die through the Big Shot so adding lots of sprigs to a card will be much faster. Also, I see reindeer antlers as well as a sprig!

~Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper – FLOWERS!!!! Also, this paper is printed on shimmery white paper! Woot Woot!!!

~Tin Tile Embossing Folder – The detail and look of this folder is just stunning!!!

~Chicken Wire Elements – Silvery shine and detailed look already ready for your project. Love it!

Fixing Your Broken Punch!!!

Posted on

It’s okay! It’s not really broken! Today, I’m showing you how we are fixing your broken punch!!! Have you ever had that little plastic release button in the back pop out??? No worries, that doesn’t mean your punch is forever broken!

Fixing Your Broken Punch, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Have you ever had this happen?? That little plastic piece in the back of your punch pops out. This happens when it is slid into the locked position and you go to punch something. It gets pushed out when that happens. Keeping it in the unlocked position while using it is best. I feel like I have some punches that always pop out and others that never had. Who knows…but I do know how to fix it and I’m sharing that with you!

All you need to do it gently pop that plastic piece back into the slot in the back. It will need pressure to get it back in and it will sort of snap back in. Be sure to put it in with the notch closer to the outside edge of the punch. If you pop it in the other way, it won’t slide closed/locked because it will hit that notch. No worries, just pop it back out and flip it around!

Let me know in the comments below if you have had a punch do this!!!

Check out the Video Tutorial below or click here to see this all in action because it makes more sense seeing it than reading about it, I’m sure! 🙂 I hope you found this super useful.

Tip for Your StazOn Black Ink!!!

Posted on

Today, I’m sharing a tip for your StazOn Black Ink. First one is don’t throw away that little clear lid!

Tip for Your StazOn Black Ink, www.LaurasStampPad.com

StazOn Ink smells AMAZING. Does anyone else love the smell of it like me? Let me know in the comments below….surely I’m not alone here. Right? I love it! It also works fabulous for watercoloring because it’s a permanent ink. StazOn for watercoloring and Memento for Stampin’ Blends!

My Tip: Don’t throw away that little clear lid on the inside of the ink pad. That is needed to keep a nice seal on the ink so it doesn’t dry out easily. Since it can get in the way or you might lose it, simply add a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to the lid. That little clear lid with attach and stay perfectly.

Stazon Lid Tip, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Now the ink pad is ready to use after just removing the black lid. It all comes off together and saves inky fingers. I love when something so simple really makes life easier!

StazOn Ink also has it’s own cleaner since it is a strong ink. I’ll be honest and say that I don’t use StazOn Cleaner very often. I clean my stamps with the Simply Shammy or Stampin’ Scrub and let them stain. Sometimes, when I’m done with the project, I’ll go back and use the cleaner. This is all personal preference. I know it’s best to get that ink off but it’s also a pain and I just like stamping more. It is odd because I’m such a freak about organizing and cleaning in other aspects but this I let slide. It’s okay though!

Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Paper!!!

Posted on

Who loves Black and White with a POP of color??? I sure do and the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Paper is amazing! It has that black and white and the color pops are PINK….Eeeeee…..and Green and Gold! Bling Bling!

Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Look how pretty it is!!! One side of each of the sheets has gold foil on it! This makes it hard to decide which side to use for sure! Thank goodness there are 2 sheets of every pattern so then I can use 1 sheet for one side and the other sheet for the other side! These patterns are great for Birthdays and Anniversaries. I think the black and gold would be perfect for like a 25th or 50th wedding anniversary. The numbers would be perfect for a little one’s birthday. The gold, black, and silver dots would be perfect for Graduation or New Years. There are just endless possibilities!

The Delightfully Detailed Designer Paper is so fun and absolutely stunning! There are just so many amazing features to it!

Delightfully Detailed Designer Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

 

Look at these fine details….that you don’t have to cut out or pop out the pieces in between yourself. It’s all done for you and the detail is amazing. There are 8 sheets in the pack – 4 each of the 2 designs shown above. The one on the left is a full 12″ x 12″ sheet of that floral detail. This is fun to cut into pieces or use as a full sheet for a background or scrapbook page. The sheet on the right has borders as well as pieces that can be cut for card fronts. Although you could always cut them into pieces for even more projects too! Another fabulous feature about this designer paper is that one side is vanilla and the other is white. I love that versatility built right in. Of course, you can always color the paper with a Sponge Dauber, Sponge Brayer, Spritz, etc. There are lots of possibilities with this stuff. Click the photo below to get some so you can start adding fine beautiful details to your projects!

NEW Colors of Stampin’ Blends!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! I am so excited that the NEW Colors of Stampin’ Blends are now available!!! There are tons of colors to pick from now and it’s just heavenly!

NEW Colors of Stampin' Blends, www.laurasstamppad.com

I really love the Stampin’ Blends. They make me feel like an artist which I totally am not. Shading, shadows, and blending make me have a blank look on my face thinking I have no clue. With the Stampin’ Blends and Stampin Up’s amazing stamp designs, it’s so easy. I usually follow the lines of the image with the dark marker and then color in circles all over with the light marker. AMAZING! It’s that simple! Now of course, if you know all about shadows and shading, go for it! You are a rockstar! Either way these markers are perfect for everyone!

Now with even more colors…..like PINK….you can color and enjoy so much more! I’m most excited about Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick as well as Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green! You all know I love pink so I’m excited about those but also for a brighter/darker pink since before it was just a super light one. More shades of greens are fun for flower bouquets too! You can purchase the Stampin’ Blends individually (light and dark) or in a Combo Pack.

Let me know what color you are most excited about! Click here to start shopping Stampin’ Blends!

Happy Blendin’
