What are you celebrating today? Is it a birthday? An anniversary? A new job? A new baby? An upcoming vacation? Or simply that it's Thursday and not Monday? Whatever the reason, do it with joy and spring in your step, just like this happy little fox from the Birthday Memories Suite. Reminiscent ofRichard Scarry's Busytown Books, or the animated characters from Disney, these happy, lighthearted woodland animals will bring a smile to anyone's face, no matter what the occasion.
And can you believe there is very little stamping on this card? The Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper and coordinating Birthday Friends Framelits make for quick work with this lively suite. All I had to do was run the paper through theBig Shot and stamp the sentiment on the banner. That's it! Seriously cute and amazingly quick..

***Michelle's tip: A little bit of ink goes a long way! You don't need to saturate your sponge. Simply tap it a few times in the ink pad, and use a gentle "flicking" or brushing motion against the edge of the paper, to give it a nice, defined outline.

You've probably guess by now, but I'm totally in *LOVE* with the Color Theory Suite by Stampin' Up! Not only is in featured in my first Fixer Upper Class Series , it's also my "go to" paper and stamp set right now. I really, could just design with this Color Theory Suite all night!
And if the designer series paper wasn't enough, Stampin' Up! has created this brand new Memories and More Card Packs. These are awesome for pocket photo organizing, but for me, they're an amazing addition to my card making, too. The coordinate perfectly with our new color suites.
I can't wait to play with thisColor Theory Suite throughout all the seasons of the year!

(Adorable...sweet...precious...cute as can be. That's what this little cutie from the Birthday Memories Suite is...just too cute for words! She was part of my Creating Success swap this month. Over 80 ladies created simply beautiful cards to share with demonstrators in the US, and around the world. I've been waiting for 3 weeks to share her with you.
The Birthday Memories Suite is one of my favorite suites in the whole new catalog. It's combines bright bold colors with figures reminiscent of days gone by - like the little girl show here. Some say she looks like the old Campbell's Soup girl. What do you think? (Did you notice the sentiment? It's from theCool Treats stamp set - it carried over to the new catalog!)
And I love the stamp set and framelits bundle that go with this suite The framelits actually cut out not only the stamped images, but also the images found on the designer series Birthday Memories paper. You can purchase them separately, or save 10% when you buy the Birthday Delivery bundle.

I love HGTV's show Fixer Upper..
...and when I saw the Color Theory, Wood Textures, and Textured Embossing Paste in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, that's the first thing that came to mind.
I'm so excited to introduce my 3-part Summer Fixer Upper Series. For three months this summer, we'll be exploring Color Theory, Wood Textures, and getting down-and-dirty "spackling" with Embossing Paste.
The June Class (Wednesday, June 28th) will feature the amazing Color Theory Suite, which showcase not only the amazing paint-chip inspired designer series paper, but also the Colorful Seasons Bundle (stamp set and thinlits). We'll be making 12 cards, all built around the Colorful Seasons of the year.
Here's a sneak peak of this colorful and beautiful suite.
There are three ways to get these classes:

Tomorrow, I have a class with 14 new stampers! This calls for some quick, simple, and fun cards. As you know, I'm all about the pretty paper! But, since so many designer series paper stacks have already retired, I was really at my wits end. Then, I realized that the Tasty Treats paper is still in stock! And I have two packs sitting on my shelf.
Actually, since I was saving this very special glossy coated cherry and strawberry paper for a special occasion, I had 2 1/2 sheets left! Just the right amount to make 16 adorable summertime cards. I think these ladies are just going to love this cheery card.
The Tasty Treats Paper will soon be completely sold out. Don't miss this last chance to get yours.
