Peony Garden Paper!!!

Posted on

You all know I love flowers!! I really love Peonies too! They were used in our wedding flowers actually! When Stampin’ Up released the Peony Garden Paper, I got super excited. I would love to see more shades of pink but I know everything can’t be pink! 🙂

This paper has Basic Gray, Gray Granite, Petal Pink and Whisper White! While I wish it was all shades of pink, I am excited to use the grays with bright colored flowers as the focal point! I can’t wait to start playing with this paper! There are also lots of basic background images that will be good for any occasion or gender!

This paper has some amazing ombre looks that can be used to show that off or cut into smaller pieces for just one shade of color. That’s pretty cool. I have already played with this paper and the Hippo Happiness Stamp Set that has a unicorn in it. It’s perfect for that! I am loving the prints that are perfect for both masculine and feminine because then I can create the same card but get a totally different look! Next, I plan to use it with some birthday balloons!!! What occasion would you use this paper for?? Let me know in the comments below!

Memories & More!!!

Posted on

You all know I love flowers but you have to check out these fun Memories & More Cards & Envelopes as well as the Card Collection for the Flowers For Every Season! These are just stunning! You can create cards or scrapbook with these amazing products!!

Memories & More, www.LaurasStampPad.com

While I started out as a scrapbooker, I do much more card making now! When the Memories & More Card Collections came out a few years ago, I sort of passed them up because I don’t scrapbook much anymore. I thought they were fabulous and cute for quick and simple scrapbooking though. THEN it all changed when Stampin’ Up started creating card & envelope packs to coordinate and that brought out a whole new ball game. These cards make amazing, quick, and simple cards that are fabulous! You could also use these cards as a little tag to write a note on when dropping off something to a friend. There are endless possibilities. I will be posting samples that I created next week. Today, you get to see what these products are!

Cutting For Cards!!!

Posted on

Today, I’m sharing another one of Laura’s Quick Tips! This one is all about cutting for cards! I feel like I needed to share this forever ago since it’s the first step in card making! So here we go….

Cutting For Cards, www.LaurasStampPad.com

A few things that I use for cutting for my cards are the Stampin’ Up Stampin’ Trimmer and a ruler! I use the Stampin’ Trimmer to get that nice smooth straight cut. A regular medium sized card is just a piece of cardstock cut in half either way. You can cut at 4-1/4″ along the 8-1/2″ side or cut at 5-1/2″ along the 11″ side. This will create a 4-1/4″ x 11 card base to fold in half or a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ card base cut in half. The majority of my card layers are done in 1/4″ increments. So I would layer on a piece of cardstock or designer paper on the front measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ which is a 1/4″ in from the card base. Eighth of an inch is just too crazy to do all of the time in my opinion!

Tip for the April Paper Pumpkin Kit!!!

Posted on

I think this is a record for me creating my Paper Pumpkin Kit in the same week it arrived! Woot Woot! Thanks to my “Daily Dose of Stampin’ Therapy” Facebook lives where I enjoy stamping and chatting with all of you! Click here to go join in the fun!! Here is the April Paper Pumpkin Kit!

April Paper Pumpkin, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This one is the tricky card that had me stumped for a while. Finally I….or should I say with Brad’s help….figured it out!!! It is a Z fold card and originally I thought it should fold where the white and green print meet. I was wrong! The green/white panel is the card base “inside”. Then you fold that middle score line over to create a card. It will be too long and go beyond the card back. Next, fold on the far left score line back towards the front to create the Z fold! I hope that all makes sense. If not, just watch the video below! 🙂

Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The greeting on that back panel is AMAZING! I really had a hard time covering it up because I love it so much. It says, “Life’s greatest blessings begin and end with family. It is in families that we learn to love, teach what is most important, and grow together in love and laughter. Grateful for you, happy to be yours! <3

Paper Pumpkin Monthly Card Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is the second card that is super fun with the tree! I love those leaves/flower petals! I did find that there are not enough pearls for every yellow dot on each card. BUT I found a fun solution for running out. I was able to take the Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Blends Marker and color some of my Pearls for the same look! PERFECT!!!

Be sure to sign up for the May Paper Pumpkin Kit to join in the fun and have a great project to do for an afternoon or evening or morning or whenever! These kits come with everything in them so anyone can do it!

Get Them Now!!!

Posted on

Stampin’ Up’s NEW catalog is coming out in June! That means we need to make room for new stuff by retiring some of the current products!!! These items that are retiring are while supplies last so get them now!!

Get Them Now, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The 2018-2020 In Colors will be retiring in June. These supplies are while supplies last so they could be gone sooner! Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick are the color names! My favorite is Lovely Lipstick and I’ll be sad to see it go. I just love shades of PINK! If you have the ink pad, be sure to grab an Ink Refill so you can enjoy the color for even longer!!! Grab some coordinating cardstock, ribbon, and other fun embellishments too!

Another tip is that Stampin’ Up retires all of the designer paper in the catalog. There has been a time or 2 where they keep one pack again for another year but otherwise all of them go. Grab your favorites now before they are gone. You can also check out my One Sheet Wonders for great ways to use the paper!
