Adventures in laminating!

I've been wanting a laminator for quite some time now. I started researching and found the Purple Cows Hot/Cold laminator 9" for $28 at asks I think Amazon had it for the same price. They also have a 13" size, and I debated on that or the smaller and ended up with the smaller size. The machine came with 50 sheets and was super easy to set up and use, right out of the box!

The girls made book marks, I laminated a to do list (which I had seen someone on Instagram do) I also made new dividers for my Filofax (not pictured)

For the price and ease, I don't know why I didn't pick one of these up earlier!

I also have to say, I found these Ultra Fine Tip dry erase markers and they ate pretty awesome!

Do you have a laminator? What do you laminate around your house?

Thanks for dropping by today. I'll be back later in the week with a post about a redo of a fall decoration. Have a great Monday!


  1. Okay. Now I need to add this to my ever growing list of things I want. lol. I laminate stuff at work all the time and I've fallen in love. LOL! There are so many uses for it. I love the to-do list idea.

  2. I don't have one but I have always thought it would be a fun/handy thing to have on hand!

  3. Holy cow, I am adding that to my cart at Amazon!
    I miss having access to a laminator from my teaching days.
    And there have been so many times I wish I still had one!

  4. My xyron has a laminating cartridge.
    I have used it to laminate flowers or leaves after I have flatten and dried them. Then adhered them in my cottage journal.
    Love what you have done with your laminator, cute book mark :)
    Keep sharing what you are laminating….I should use mine more :)

  5. Fun! My laminating consists of covering things with clear contact paper. Ha!

  6. Ah! I have that laminator! I love it! I like to use it for school, but I never thought of it for lists and things. That is awesome!

    I also "temporarily laminate" things by putting them in a thick 8.5x11 plastic page protector. You can write/erase with markers on them, and you can replace the insides when you need to. That comes in very handy for school!
