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!

Bohemian Rhapsody

Hey there! It's bright and early this morning, the sun is shining, it's finally June and it's a great day to spend some time on doing what you like to do. At least that is what I told myself when I got up!

I said yesterday I would be back with more details about the card and I am. First, thanks to those of you who stopped by to my Open House, grabbed a catalog and ordered some fun stuff to add to your creative adventures.  Hopefully we won't have to wait tooooo long before that box arrives!

The new paper in the catalog is so pretty, fresh and inspiring. I love to use Designer Series Paper to inspire me, especially with color themes. I preordered "Bohemian DSP" and played with it for a little while. the colors are very vivid, bold and rich, a little out of my box but still fun. Here are some cards I made with it, including the one from yesterday.

And here's a peak at the paper.. so gorgeous!

Big patterns are sometimes harder to use on a small scale project like a card, but as you can see, if you combine it with more solid papers or feature it by itself, it works. Fortunately, if you are not able to use the big pattern, the reverse side of these papers is more monochromatic and smaller print.  I'm sure I'll be diving back into this paper soon!

The new catalog is on line for your viewing pleasure!  You can go to the store and browse through the products, organized via category. You can also contact me for a catalog if you prefer the paper version.  

I'm also excited about the kits that Stampin'Up! has now including several card kits, a 3-D birthday cake, a wall art/photo piece, a perpetual calendar and more. I'll be hosting some kit classes in the upcoming months and these are perfect for those of you who aren't that in to cards but still like to DIY when you can. So many possibilities!

Yay for new catalogs!
