Happy BOO to You!

So long, summer! Hello, Fall!

Don't get me wrong...I love summer!  I was talking to Linz the other day and she said how sad she is that summer is coming to an end and I really stopped and thought about which season I love the most  I honestly can't choose.  Really though....hoodies, bonfires, football, pumpkins, colorful leaves...what's not to love?

I have to admit that since the Holiday Catalog went LIVE I have been all about the holidays.  Have I mentioned lately how much I love this catalog??  Oh yeah....I have.  Well, I have a fun project for you today that I hope will make you smile and feel a little "fall" vibe.  If you'd like to make some of your very own, I'll have the supplies listed for you at the end.

Don't forget to check out the "Birthday Bash Special" details below too!  You could win a $25 Stampin' Up! Gift Certificate from me!

Wishing you inky fingers and lots of fall fun,
Michelle
Here for the Boos!  A s'mores kit for two.

Fruit Stand Peaches

Oh, how I LOVE peaches!  This fun design is one we'll be creating at Tall Oaks Stamp Camp this Monday evening.  Would you like to join us?

You are positively peachy!

Hello, my friends!  We just returned from an incredible family adventure in California.  We went out there so that I could run in the Disneyland Half Marathon last weekend and then stayed and explored.  We arrived the day before Lindsay's birthday so we just HAD to celebrate it....Disney Style!
What memories we made....




This is definitely an exciting time of year with Stampin' Up!  The Holiday Catalog is in full swing and WOW....it's going gang busters.  There are several updates below so be sure to read to the end...

Stamped Blessings,
Michelle

Grateful For You


Hello, Friends!

Wow!  We just arrived home this evening from a wonderful week of family, fun and relaxation at the Outer Banks in North Carolina and I am SO ready to hit the ground running.  There's just a little over a week left before the Holiday Catalog goes LIVE and I have SO many ideas to share.  If you haven't already gotten a copy of the Holiday Catalog, please message me at shellsuit@verizon.net net with your address and I'll get one out to you jiffy quick.  It is FABULOUS!!

Until then, I want to share this sweet card with you and all of the instructions to create it too.  These sweet raccoons were created with the NEW "Fox Builder" Punch.  I have to tell you, this punch is going to be like the Owl Builder Punch for me.  There are SOOOOO many ideas and designs to create with it.  It's a definite "must have" if you ask me.  It can be found on page 188 of your regular Annual Catalog.  Item #141470
It coordinates perfectly with the "Foxy Friends" stamp set that you can find on page 57 - Item #141549

Flourishing Thanks


Happy Monday, Friends!

I can't believe that it's August already.  Whew!  This year is just flying by.  I've been busy working on new designs to share with you and I have to tell you that I'm just loving the new "Flourish Thinlits".  I've only just started experimenting with them and I can't seem to get enough of them!

These sweet "Thank You" cards are really quick and easy to put together.  They would be a lovely gift for a bride to be or maybe a mommy to be.  They can be made with any color of the rainbow and still make a statement.

Now, you may be wondering how I got the "spatter" on the background.  Well, I just took the cap off of the brush end of my Black Stampin' Write Marker and used a "flicking" motion with the brush against the edge of the cap, pointing it at the cardstock.  You can add as much or as little as you'd like.  I think it just adds a fun layer to the design.

Here are the parts and pieces that are included in the "Flourish Thinlits"...

What did I tell you??  The possibilities are endless!
Here is the list of supplies I used to create today's samples.  All supplies can be found at my Online Store ----> JUST CLICK HERE



I hope you'll give it a try and see what you can come up with.  As I said....SO many possibilities.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stampin'!
Michelle
