How to Laminate Using the Your Story Machine

I hope you enjoy this video about laminating with the Your Story.  I just love this little machine!

Here’s a video about how to use the Crop a Dile & the Crop a Dile Big Bite.

Here’s a post where I used the Create a Bow Sizzix die.

Here are links to some of the items I used or mentioned in this video:

Sizzix Create-A-Bow, Sizzix Big Shot, Laminating Pouches 100/box, Tim Holtz Scissors,Fiskars Trimmer(This is the trimmer I showed you), CARL 12210 Bidex Trimmer. This is the trimmer I use for precision cutting large amounts of paper at once.

I hope you have a Great Weekend!!!

  1. Joy,
    Great video as usual. I love my YourStory and my big bite. I use it for laminating all the time.
    Thanks for the all the links as well.

  2. Hi Joy! That was a great video. I have ideas running through my head now. The rings I thought maybe I would try and use those to hang up my Cricut booklets up by the ring binding and then hand them up on something easily assessible. I love the laminate machine. I just recently bought the small one that doesnt have the laminate on it. Now I wished I would have waited and bought the big one.

    Thanks for showing us how it works.

  3. can you use “any” laminating pouches. I have a “standard” laminator, and I have to use a “sleeve”, putting the pouch with whatever I’m laminating inside it so that the pouch doesn’t melt. I’ve read the instructions to the YourStory and see in your video that a sleeve is not used. I was concerned that the laminating pouch would melt inside the machine…but you’ve quelled my fears.

    I went to the Amazon.com site you posted above and see there are other sites offering laminating pouches. I like to “comparison shop”..,but don’t want to buy any pouches that might not be compatible with the YourStory machine.

    Thanks for the video.

  4. great idea…I embossed tags using my embossing folders and laminated those with my yourstory and put those on rings so its easier to see what styles I have.

  5. Great video. I love how easy the laminating was. Is this the your story you can get from Hsn.? I might have to check into this. Thanks for sharing

  6. This is a great way to organise your instructions and laminating keeps them clean and stops them from getting ripped so thanks for sharing.

  7. loved this video. I got a Your Story for Christmas and this is a wonderful idea. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Thanks, Joy, for this video. Your video was very helpful. I just recently bought the Your Story and haven’t taken it out of the box yet.

  9. Thanks for showing the Your Story and how it laminates. I thought it just did covers.
