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!

Go See Do

I'm back to my travel theme!  I love to travel, even though most of it is with a camper and not very far from home. In fact, I've never really traveled on a train or an ocean liner, but it looks like fun to me!  That's why I've come back to a favorite stamp set in the annual catalog, "Traveler" . It's a more vintage, nostalgic style which I also love. For my card class, I let each person pick a piece of a map which I had cut up. Depending on whether they picked alot of ocean or more land, they chose either the train or ocean liner for their stamped image.   Here's the card:

Maps are great for backgrounds and I also worked with it to get my color scheme. This was a fun card and there was alot of joy around the table when people found a part of the US that meant something special to them.  Got any maps hanging around your house?
