I can't believe that this is the last day of 2014! With it come changes...I have to admit blogging has not been one of my top priorities. It seems with all going on it falls to the bottom of the to-do list. I'm trying to figure out a schedule that I can stick with and achieve week after week. I think 3x a week is what I'm going to start with - so every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday I will update the blog. IF that is something I can achieve then I *might* see about adding more days. Honestly I do more posting on my Facebook page - so if you haven't joined my page, I'd recommend that! You can join here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Made4ubymichelle/557799584253510
We have a new set of weekly deals for you to take advantage of
I hope you are enjoying your holiday today! I'm spending some much needed time with family. We are hopefully laughing, playing games, eating lots of yummy food and getting ready to do some Black Friday shopping!
I wanted to take a moment and thank you for reading by blog and I wanted to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!!
Here's another little treat box that's perfect to give those special people in your life. This is made using the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Dies. I LOVE this die - you cut two, assemble and you have a cute treat container. This one is full of chocolate - how much chocolate you ask? Well how about 3 miniature candy bars, 3 Rolos and 3 Hershey Kisses!
There are so many cute things that you can do with the Fry Box from Stampin' Up! I just love how these elf boxes turned out! They make perfect favors for guests, neighbors and co-workers. The Fry Box die is so easy to use too - the die scores and cuts making it VERY easy to put together.
Another Wednesday which means it's time for another set of awesome weekly deals from Stampin' Up! These prices are good just for one week or while supplies last. You can get them at my site for 24/7 HERE.
Check back tomorrow for some Christmas ideas! Thanks for stopping by!
Well officially it's Fall but I'm pretty sure Winter is ready to be here! Man oh man has it gotten so cold...and we are supposed to accumulate snow on Saturday. EEK I'm not sure I'm ready for that!
This is the other card we made for Stamp Club last month using the Holiday Home Stamp Set. The background was made using the Alcohol Marker Marbling Technique. I picked the dark colors in several Blendablitites sets to use. It was a lot of fun.
We then added trees and leaves to it as well. Mossy Meadow, Crushed Curry, and Cajun Craze are the perfect Fall colors. Thanks for stopping by!
Each week Stampin' Up! releases a set of product at a discounted price. They are only good for one week or while supplies last. Contact me if you'd like to order or you can visit my site and order 24/7 HERE.
This week Stampin' Up! also released a new Photopolymer Stamp set - Banner Blessings.
Lots going on this week - This Friday if you are in Topeka I am having my Makin' Memories Girls Night Out at my house from 5pm till midnight. It's FREE to come you just need to bring a snack to share. Bring whatever you are working on - it can be sewing, scrapbooking, cardmaking, whatever! Just come and have some girl time and get something accomplished in the process :D
On Sunday I will be at the Holiday Bazaar in Lawrence from 10am till 5pm. I will have lots of Fall and Christmas goodies for sale. Hope to see you there!
The Holiday Catalog is FULL of wonderful stamp sets and matching dies! For Stamp Club this month we used the Holiday Home Stamp Set & Homemade Holiday Framelits Dies that match to create two cards.
This is one of my favorites as I'm a sucker for Winter scenes and Christmas. We used the 2" circle punch to create the opening and then placed our home on the front. The home is all decked out for the holiday. I used the bare trees on my card but most of the ladies put Evergreen trees (also included in the stamp set) on their card. The snowflakes are stamped using Craft Stampin' Ink pad.
On the inside of the card we lined up another house and the second part of the sentiment. It turned out so cute! The girls really liked it.
Have you started making your Christmas Cards yet? I don't just make one card - I make many cards and like 5 or so of each. That way I don't get bored and I have a nice variety to send to friends and family! Whatever you decide to do you might want to get started as there are only 47 more days till Christmas arrives :D
Thanks to everyone that stopped by my blog this weekend for Inking Everything's Team Blog Hop. We had creations on both our blog and our Facebook Page. These were the creations I made for my Facebook Page.
I LOVE the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die to make these wonderful Pumpkins. I stamped them using Gorgeous Grunge for some "texture". The leaves were cut using the Fun Fall Framelits Dies. Each pumpkin is filled with miniature candy bars and Rolos. It holds quite a lot :D
The tag was easy to make with the Merry Everything Bundle - Stamp Set & matching Note Tag Punch. LOVE how I can create tags so easy - and for many occasions too!
