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!

How About a Blog Hop?!!


Welcome to the “Blogging Friends Blog Hop!” This is my first time as a blog hop participant and I'm super excited! Who are the ‘Blogging Friends’? We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada who had never met before. Well, actually, we still haven’t met yet (in person). . . But, through our common bond of Stampin’ Up! and a shared love of papercrafting we have created a fun new blog hop. Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created!
Each month we’ll have a different theme; this month it’s LOVE! I have had alot of fun playing with the "Bloomin' Love" bundle from the 2016 Occasions catalog. Here are a couple of my creations:




The first one is a very traditional Valentine, especially reminding me of the red foil heart boxes filled with chocolate I received as a kid from my parents. The second Valentine is more muted in color palette but has some bling with the pearls and Blushing Bride glimmer paper. All of the products used to make these Valentines are available from the Stampin'Up Store Online! Check out the link to the right of this blog post. And now, start hopping!

In case you’ve never ‘done’ a blog hop before, it’s really easy! At the bottom of this post, you’ll see another image similar to the one above, and when you click on it, you’ll be taken directly to the next blog in the hop. Keep clicking on that image at the bottom of each blog post, and you’ll hop through all of the participating blogs, back to where you started – and you’ll see all of the amazing projects created for your inspiration! If you’d prefer to hop about at your leisure, you can click on the individual links for each blog. Happy Hopping!

Watch for this blog hop at the beginning of every month!
