My Story

Hi, my name is Michelle Ide and I live in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire with my husband and our niece. My husband works for FedEx, I run a small daycare out of our home and we are licensed Foster Care Parents.

I've never considered myself to be a very crafty person but that changed when I inked up my first stamp.   I have been a SU! addict since that first workshop and in July 2005 I signed on to be a Demonstrator. Being a SU! Demo is so rewarding, not only do I get to be creative but I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers and friends.

For me, helping someone create that perfect project for a special occasion is the best feeling in the entire world. After all, creating cards, scrapbook pages, and gift items is about more than just stamps and ink—it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.

I hope to inspire you with my projects, all of which have been created with Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive rubber stamps and accessories.   Come visit me at or e-mail me at

I look forward to hearing from you!
