Your Next Stamp: Celebrating 10 Years!

Hello everyone!! I’m incredibly excited to be here today. Your Next Stamp is celebrating 10 years. As a former design team member, I feel honored to celebrate with them.

I’ve always loved their stamp sets, dies, and gumdrops (those are my favorite). Their new September release is nothing short of amazing. You will not be disappointed. The new release products will be available on the YNS Store on September 12, 2019.

Let’s take a look at what I created:

Gift pouches are always fun to make and also fun to receive. It was fun creating these from start to end.

You can fill these with money, gift cards, small necklaces, rings, bracelets, etc. Perfect with no gift wrapping needed.

Here’s how to create these gift pouches:

Gather your supplies. You will need:

Fabulous Feathers Stamp Set
Dancing Dragonflies Stamp Set
Linen-Cotton Canvas Fabric
Cork Fabric
Pearl Snaps
Snaps Pliers
VersaCraft Black Ink
BERNINA sewing machine

Here’s how to create it:

Preparing fabric:

Cut two pieces of linen-cotton canvas fabric to 13.5 x 4, rounding the ends.

Cut one piece of cork to 3 x 4, round the corners.

Cut one piece of interfacing to 11 x 4.

Preparing for sewing:

Fold the straight edge of the cork fabric 1/4 to hide the raw edges.

Clip the cork to the top of one piece of the linen-cotton canvas fabric.


Edgestitch the fold down 1/8 in.

On the back of this exterior piece, line the fusible fleece to the stitched line and iron in place.

Align the exterior and interior pieces, right side together.

Stitch around the entire pouch using a 1/4″ seam allowance, leaving a 3″ gap for turning.

Turn the piece inside out, push out the corners, and press.

Take the straight edge of the pouch and fold it up to the original stitch line and press.

Edgestitch all the way around. Backstitch at the top of the pouch on both sides.

Add the pearl snap using the pliers.

Stamping on the pouch:

Use VersaCraft Ink to stamp onto fabric.

Decide on the place of the design and stamp.

Super simple and easy.

Let’s take a closer look:


Let’s not forget the back of each pouch:

Decorting the back is important too. You can carry the design around to the back or completely change things up. Let your imagination sore!

So what do you think? Stamping doesn’t always have to be on cardstock. Stamping on fabric is just as easy.

Wait, the fun doesn’t stop here!

We have PRIZES for you!

Thank you so much,

Take a look at the inside pages:

Traveler's notebook pages

I have to admit when I saw the new It’s for You Stamp Set, I knew I had to have it based on a trip I took last year with my daughter to Cuba.

We visited a street art museum, and one of the things that grabbed my daughter’s attention was the rotary phone. She was curious about it and wanted to know how it worked. I laughed and decided to tape her trying to use it.

Here’s how I create this page:

I wanted to keep my design clean and simple.

I used the Tall Alpha Die to decorate the cover of the notebook.

So I stamped the telephone and the sentiment on the right bottom corner of the page using the Mini MISTI and permanent black ink.

Round the edges of the photo.

Mount the photo on top of the cardstock and adhere it to the cover of the traveler’s notebook.
