Christmas Gift Tags!!!

Posted on

Is it all about the gift or the gift packaging?!?! For my regular presents, I don’t tend to add a decorated tag. In fact, I usually write the name in the fold on the end and have no tag. BUT I love to create fun Christmas Gift Tags for neighbor gifts and teacher gifts!

Christmas Gift Tags Kit,

The Stampin’ Up! Christmas Gifting Kit is super cute and simple. It makes 3 each of these 3 tags and there are tons of supplies leftover. These tags have a little pocket on the backside. I’ll be honest, I’m not sure what that pocket is for. Is it for money? A Gift Card? Seems a little small for a gift card. Thoughts?!?!

Christmas Gifting Kit Stampin' Up,

My favorite thing about these tags is the whole peek-a-boo look with the die cut tree, star, and deer and then the printed pocket tag in the bag peeking through. I love it! BONUS: Those die cut images can then be used for additional tags.

Alternative Christmas Gifting Kit Options,

Look what I created with the leftover pieces and some Basic White Cardstock. I used the Very Best Trio Punch for some added detail and a slot for the ribbon! How amazing is that?!?! So the Christmas Gifting Kit creates 9 tags but I easily created an additional 9! Woot Woot!

Hello Dear Friend!!!

Posted on

I love All Inclusive Kits because they are perfect for gifting to someone or for a beginner stamper to get their feet wet!! They come with everything you need to make the cards except scissors. The Hello Dear Friend Card Kit is my current favorite because of the flowers and the AMAZING GREETINGS!

Hello Dear Friend Stampin' Up All Inclusive Card Kit,

I love the greetings so much for #happymail cards or even thank you notes. My favorite actual card from the bunch is the mini purple thank you card! There is just something about the flower bunch in front of what looks like a window that I love!!!

Easy Mini Thank You Card,

Don’t you think it looks like a church window or something??? I just love it and it’s super simple. TIP: Be sure to stamp the greeting up high so that it fits. As you can see in my sample, the Y cuts off a bit at the bottom!

#happymail Card,

This card is my 2nd favorite because that greeting makes me smile!!! TIP: Add adhesive to the middle and lower left corner of the vellum so it will be covered up with the flowers and greeting! The purple flower was adhered on the card flat but the pink and yellow one are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

Hello Dear Friend Mini Card,

This card is quick and simple. The perfect size for a little note to drop with an item on someone’s porch, desk, or even hand it to them! Just a little something to brighten your day! Who wouldn’t love that?!?!?

Flowers & Diamonds Greeting Card,

I created this card with the vellum diamond both up and down. Honestly, I couldn’t really tell the difference like it should be one way or the other. It looks amazing both ways and the flower and greeting sort of take away from the fact that it’s a diamond shape!

Which one is your favorite?? Let me know in the comment below! If you would like to see me create all of these cards, check out this video! I’ll be honest evenings and this pregnancy made my stamping a bit of a hot mess but not every stamping session is perfect! LOL

Christmas Gift Idea!!!

Posted on

I think I have found the fabulous Christmas Gift idea for this year. It is the Purple Posies Card Kit!!! This card kit has 16 total cards in it and the box is super cute and fabulous! Create these cards and give it as a gift to anyone this holiday season!!!

Christmas Gift Idea 2020,

Aren’t these cards beautiful?!?!?! And look at that fabulous gold foil and decorated box!!! I love it all and think I will enjoy crafting these kits and giving them as gifts!

Get Well Purple Posies Card Kit,

This is my favorite card. That ribbon wiggled back and forth under the greeting is super cool and it was easy to do!

Homemade Card Kit,

This is my second favorite card because I love the detail on that greeting banner. It’s so detailed and really makes it pop! I think I could have passed on the ribbon behind the greeting but I followed the directions as is!

Greeting Card Craft Kit,

This card is just stunning with all of the flowers and that fabulous gold foil bling! I found that putting the purple twine bow below the greeting made it pop more without getting in the way!

Give the Gift of Cards,

Just because I’m posting these cards last doesn’t mean I don’t like them. I love them all. I did 2 of these cards with the twine behind the greeting and 2 without. I’m honestly not sure which one I prefer. Mixing it up is always fun though! What do you think?

If you are looking for great Christmas Gift Ideas, take a look at card kits! You can gift them all created or gift all inclusive kits so the recipient can enjoy crafting too. Better yet, give the gift with a certificate of time with you to create it together. Spending time together, talking, laughing, and making memories is the best gift of all… my opinion!

Pajama Party!!!

Posted on

Good morning and happy Monday!!! Why are pajamas so comfy and fabulous?? I’m guessing because no one typically seems them so they are the most comfortable, soft, worn clothing ever. Or maybe it’s because they remind us of sleep and relaxing. Who knows but I am bringing that fabulous feeling to stamping. We are having a PAJAMA PARTY!!!

Pajama Party,

Next, Thursday, July 23rd at 8 p.m. CT, let’s all gather together on a Facebook Live and stamp in our cozy pjs!!! This is a little segment I like to call Laura’s Dose of Stampin’ Therapy!

During the Pajama Party next week, I will be creating the Simply Citrus All Inclusive Kit which has a total of 15 cards – 3 each of 5 designs! Since this kit is all inclusive, that means it comes with everything you need except scissors! Anyone can create it! There are directions in the kit but of course I will creating it Live so you can always ask questions then as well!

All Inclusive At Home Card Kit,

These cards are so bright and fresh looking! The greetings are perfect for any occasion. Many of them are generic which is what I have been using the most lately. Just a little note to drop in the mail to someone saying I am thinking of them or wanted to brighten their day! #Happymail

You might not be able to see them very well in these photos but there are little vellum flowers that add a fabulous texture and flare to each of these cards. If you wanted a more masculine look, you could always leave them off too!

I can’t wait to create the rest of this kit with all of you on my Facebook Live Pajama Party on July 23rd at 8 p.m. CT! If you would like to stamp along with me, click the link below to get your Simply Citrus All Inclusive Card Kit and we can all stamp together!

March 2020 Paper Pumpkin!!!

Posted on

The March 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit was AMAZING! I love the Spring look and the fun rain boots! It also came with an extra stamp set which is super fun too! Check out all 12 of the cards in this kit!

March 2020 Paper Pumpkin,

I just love all of these cards! The coordinating striped envelopes are super cute too! I’m not 100% sure which color goes with which card but that’s okay!

Cute Rain Boots,

This card is so fun because of all the colorful boots. My first card was that bottom left hand card. Notice that the green boots don’t line up with the girl’s boots. Oppps! I didn’t realize that they matched up and so I just placed the boots down. 🙂 No one will notice! This card has the clear raindrops on it that add just a little bit of texture and shine!


The bunny is adorable and makes this a fun Easter card! You can see that a I used the clear epoxy dots for this card. The photo doesn’t show it very well but there are like 3 above the flowers and 2 over by the bunny!

Waiting out the storm,

I’m not a huge fan of storms because….well…they are scary! Seeing these beautiful flowers and cute boots just proves to me that there is still beauty during the storm. There is hope that we will get through it and we will!

Paper Pumpkin is so much fun and I love getting something new each month that is a surprise! I love getting card kits that are perfect for the time of year we are in. Join in the fun with me and get Paper Pumpkin too! Click here to sign up for 1 month or as long as you want!

The Three Cheers to You All Inclusive Card Kit is PERFECT for right now! This is something that you can do anywhere. In bed, in front of the TV, at the kitchen table! Also, anyone can do it because it comes with everything to create the cards except scissors! Spend an afternoon of homeschooling craft class with the kids, enjoy it your self, or give it to your neighbor who is alone.

Three Cheers To You,

There are 4 card styles and 3 each of them for a total of 12 cards! It also comes in this adorable box which you can use to store them in or gift them in. You could also use it for a completely different gift as a gift box!

All Inclusive Card Kit,

This one is my favorite! I love the soft subtle colors because that makes it perfect for a baby boy or girl! Heck, it just says tiny miracles so that could be a new puppy, kitten, or even a small step in the right direction in life!

This one is my second favorite card! I just love color combination. That linen thread with the large bow behind the greeting is kind of cool. That’s how the instructions said to do it and I like it! Another fabulous way to add ribbon to cards!

My heart can't stop smiling,

I love this greeting so much! It is just the cutest greeting ever and works for so many occasions! The simple blue with that hint of foil is just perfect!

Three Cheers for You,

The final card in the Three Cheers For You Card Kit has that exact greeting! This was the first card I made like this and the rest of them I added more Linen Thread. I felt it needed more foofoo and texture and this one looked too simple! That’s the awesome thing about these kits is that there is plenty of supplies and you don’t have to follow the directions!
