Independent Stampin'Up! Demonstrator!

Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

Hip Hip Hooray!

Welcome to 2016!  Alot has happened since I last posted. We had an extremely wonderful Christmas with our kids, family and friends. This was quickly followed by the passing of my mother on January 2nd. It was not unexpected, but still a shock in how fast her decline went from Christmas Day on. I am so grateful for the many, many glimpses of God's grace in how it all unfolded.

I am getting back into the swing of crafting because it is a happy place for me and has been for most of my life. Creating things feeds my soul and the friendships I've made with people who also like to craft have been life-giving in so many ways. I know there are hard days ahead but I also know there are great days as well.

The New Year happens to coincide with Stampin'Up!'s biggest promotion of the year, Sale-A-Bration! You'll be hearing alot about this as it lasts through March 31st. Briefly, for every $50 you spend on a purchase, any product, any catalog, you get to choose a free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  The new catalog and brochure are located on the right hand side of the blog and you can click there for easy access. I also have paper copies if you would like one, just contact me.

To start things off, here's a fun card using the Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies.  I will be showing you several ways to use these, but here is one.   I used the thinlit directly on the front of my black card and then glued a colorful Designer Series paper from the "It's My Party" stack behind it. I wanted the shape of the thinlit to stand out a little more so I used our white gel marker to make dashes around the word bubble shape. Here's the card:

This would be a very easy card to make multiples of and could be used for birthday, congratulations or any celebratory reason.  Be sure to check out the new catalog and SAB brochure and start your wish list today!

Happy New Year,
