I know, I know...the new catalog has been out for a couple of weeks but my Vegas Trip has me just a tad behind. With that being said, I'm trying to get a "schedule" down and get back into creating again. I miss having classes and seeing all my friends, lol!
You can get the catalog through me - just send me an email. OR you can view it online HERE. But wait - if that doesn't work for you then you may want to download it through the Google Catalogs app for your iPad or Android Tablet. How cool is that?! You can always have it with you - inspiration at your fingertips!!
Remember you can shop with me anytime through my website: made4ubymichelle.stampinup.net

While surfing Pinterest the other day (Am I the only one addicted to that site?!?!), I found some cards that I just had to CASE...now I don't know what is the proper protocol on giving credit. This first card was inspired by a card by Michelle in Canada.
I used Summer Silhouettes and Curly Cute Stamp Sets. Then a whole punch of punches...oh yeah, I'm addicted to those as well, lol! You can see Michelle's original card HERE.
This next card is one of my FAVORITES and it was very easy to do. PLUS it used up my scraps which is a double plus! I plan on using the layout a LOT...so very cute! This was inspired by Julie Davison.
I like the green but then had to try it in orange...
HERE. Now my thank you stash is good for awhile! Thanks for stopping by!

I'm sure you've heard about Stampin' Up's new monthly kit called Paper Pumpkin. I've always wanted to receive a kit each month so was so excited with Stampin' Up came out with this. I finally had a chance to put my kit together.
This first card is exactly how the instructions told me to put it together. Nice and easy! Plus it's awesome to have 4 cards done right away!
Next, I searched Pinterest to see what others came up with.
This idea came from Krystals Cards. I changed a few things but most of it was the same. One of the things the instructions have are the colors being used. So it was a breeze to add to the kit by getting into my ink pads, papers and punches.
Once I did that card my confidence started to grow. So I did another search on Pinterest, this time for a card sketch. I found one that got me thinking and I came up with this card:
Again, nice and easy and lovin' that I have cards ready to go! Well after that I knew I was ready to try anything, lol! So I did another search for a card sketch and came up with this one:
I do have a few pieces left over so I will be able to add them to another card or page. All in all I think the kit is more than worth the $19.95 I paid! Plus all 4 of these cards were made in under 1.5 hours - a RECORD for me!

Tonight was a monthly Stamp Club night and let me tell you those ladies had me laughing so hard tonight. Feels good to do some creating and laughing - it's great for the soul!
First I should ask - have you heard of a stamp club? This is where so many people decide to join a monthly club. Depending on how many people determines how much they spend each month and how many months the club goes for. It's a way to get a few supplies each month. And for being in the club you get to be the hostess one month (which means FREE stuff!). I also have two projects that we do and share techniques with you each month as well as other thank yous and little goodies :D
I was excited about club this month because of all the cool things that I learned and saw at Regionals in St. Louis. First up is a butterfly card using watercolor paper, markers, mister and water. It's one of those cards you look at and just smile - I mean with all that color you can't help it!
Next card is a fun fold card and Bonnie actually demonstrated this one. She used one of my favorite stamps...LOVE how there is a coordinating die to go along with it!
I used the Tea For Two DSP (from the Spring Catalog) as the main focal point. It's awesome how the card showcases both sides of the paper.
If you and your friends would like more information about my Stamp Clubs let me know. The more the merrier, I say! Plus I could always use more friends and great laughs!

Well Easter is right around the corner and I always enjoy giving out little treats to my Preschoolers and to Abby's class. Last year I did Peeps On A Stick (found on Pinterest) and they were a huge hit. So I decided to do them again!
This year I used the stamp set SPRING SAMPLER as well as a few markers - Wild Wasabi, Rose Red, Marina Mist & Chocolate Chip. It went rather quickly even though I had 50+ tags to make!
Here is one set - I did 40 of the Peeps On A Stick and then about 15 M&M treat tubes. Forgot to take a picture of those though! I think they'll bring a smile to the little ones faces!

Your life is: Awesome. Quirky. Exciting. Perfectly messy. And happening really fast. So Stampin' Up is happy to introduce their newest product line that lets you capture it all on-the-go. This and That will debut in the 2013 - 2014 annual catalog, but between March 23 - April 30 you can get an awesome bundle kit now! Of course, if you don't want the bundle (and why not? I mean you are saving 15% and it's so cool!) you can purchase the items individually.
I've already ordered my bundle and am *not so* patiently waiting for it to arrive. I'm really excited by this as I love to "keep" items - ticket stubs, interesting gift cards, business cards plus I like to journal - especially when it comes to the crazy and funny things that our family says and does. I'm thinking this will be able to go with me and I can easily add to it.
I did learn about this at the Regional Event this last weekend and one thing that I'm so stoked by is the binding. It's like a flimsy binder that has give. I know I'm probably not explaining it right but it won't get ruin going in and out of the many bags that I carry. Oh and the rotary stamp - so so cool. Everyone should at least get this...it will be PERFECT for all you scrapbookers!!
You can see more information about the This & That products HERE
Once mine arrives I'll be sure to share some up close and personal images :D Thanks for stopping by!
