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!

@birthdayboy, #stilllookinggood

The card I have for you today is a bit of an oxymoron... It doesn't completely make sense, but I still love it!  It's a vintage look and design but uses hashtags, which couldn't be any more non-vintage!  I'm always on the lookout for how to combine my wonderful Stampin'Up! products with the random accumulation of other stuff in my room and this is one of those times!  Here's the card:

I combined alot of elements:  embossing with a folder and my Big Shot, a little piece of thin cardboard, some burlap, a metal sprocket of some kind and some hashtags using the Word Window punch.  Have you ever just stared at a pile of stuff and wondered "what can I do with this?"  That is a legit creative process in my mind and I use it often!  Truth be told, it's also how I cook alot of the time... what can I do with this stuff so I don't have to go to the grocery store ;)  !!

I still have a few spots in my classes this week!  I have some fun classes planned and we'll try some sponging, some envelope making, some heat embossing on vellum and more!  The classes are Friday at 9 a.m. and Saturday at 10 a.m. They are the same class so you can attend whichever is more convenient.  Please RSVP!

Back to the pile o' stuff,
