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!

Congratulations! for any occasion...

Sometimes you just need a card that says "Bravo", or "Congrats" or "Way to Go"!  There are all kinds of reasons... new job, new house, promotion, reaching a hard-fought goal, staying on track or the obvious, graduation!  It's great fun to encourage those we love and the blessing to them is huge. We should do it more, shouldn't we?  I'm working on that and not necessarily waiting for a biggie occasion, but just congratulating others as a way to show them love and care.   Stampin'Up! has the perfect stamp set, "Bravo". You get alot of bang for your buck with this stamp set and can adapt it to any occasion or use.  Here's the card I made recently:

My goal was a quick and easy card with some fun colors. I used the Work Of Art stamp set for my watercolor background brush strokes and dots.  I added some washi tape because I have a ton and forget to use it and threw in a back paperclip just for added interest. This card took less than 10 minutes to make and I love the results. 

If you are thinking that card making, scrap booking and papercrafting in general looks complicated and difficult, you could be right, depending on what you are looking at. However, more and more, it's become easier, simpler and less cluttered with stuff. That's a good goal for a card and a great goal for life, right?!  Now's a great time to jump in so contact me if you are interested in starting a paper journey of your own. Hobbies feed the soul in a creative way and there is nothing like the satisfaction of making something awesome yourself, no matter what the medium from food to art to music!

Have a great weekend!
