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!

Using up leftovers

Are you a leftover lover? My husband sure is... me, not so much!  There is some satisfaction in not letting things go to waste and there also is the joy of discovery in the "I forgot all about this" moment!  Whether it's food or craft supplies, you will have leftovers!

I've been making an effort to clean out my room a little bit and get into those neglected drawers and corners and boxes and see what's in there and whether or not I can create something wonderful with it!  Today's card is a product of leftovers!

The patterned Designer Series Paper is from last spring so it is still fresh and doesn't have that stale, old feel to it. My super old leftover is the gold doily. I cut this with a big shot Thinlit  and used envelope inserts from a card kit from Sale-A-Bration 2 years ago. I have no idea why they didn't get used then, but I save everything, figuring some day, I'll want it!  It's hard to see in the picture but the confetti paper behind the birthday sentiment has some gold foil speckles in it as well.

So, my tip for today is don't forget your leftovers! There may be some real treasures inside there !

Happy Stampin!
