Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting

I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!

Halloween Home

I grew up in the kind of neighborhood and era where your parents turned you loose on Halloween to cover as much territory as you legs could handle and trusted you to be back before 10 p.m. or so with all the candy you could gather. Other than the one time a lady in a house offered me a banana, it was a great childhood adventure every year. Times have changed and I was never able to turn my kids loose, but we did do some trick-or-treating on a much smaller scale back in the day. I am somewhat ambivalent about Halloween now but every now and then, something strikes my memory and funny bone and I have to create with it. That is the case with the new stamp set "Holiday Home" (#137631 for bundle) which comes with framelits to cut out the houses. I was intrigued by the Christmas and fall images, but the first card I made was a Halloween one because I wanted to see if I could make ghosts appear to be coming out of the chimney!  Funny how our minds work, right?  Here it is:

There are a few problems with this card, such as we NEVER have green grass in October and bats don't usually fly and frolick under blue skis but sometimes you have to compromise for the sake of art ;)  Here's the stamp set and as you can see, there are tons of possibilities!
