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!

Tradition and nostalgia

I suspect it is because of my extensive quilting background that I love color, pattern and design. Fabric is eye candy, lovely to behold and even better to touch. I have discovered that paper is the same way!  An even more pleasant surprise is when it evokes strong memories that bring warm fuzzies to my heart.  One of Stampin'Up!'s Christmas paper packs does just that. I do remember the 60's and 70's and was fortunate to be young enough to be fairly untouched by the chaos in our country at that time. All I remember is very traditional childhood, which I am grateful for.

I couldn't wait to dive into this paper and start creating!  I'm having a card class this week featuring 5 cards made from this paper, "Home for Christmas".  I'll be featuring the cards the rest of the week on my blog. There are still openings in the classes if you are interested, Thursday evening and Friday morning. Just give me a holler!

I did have to use scissors to cut out Rudolph, but other than that, this card was easy peasey!  If you look really closely, you will see a dot of red glitter glue on his nose. It's important to be accurate, don't you think?  Here's a quick look at this fabulous paper that is providing my inspiration:

We just got our first snowfall last night so winter is very close!
