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!

Some Halloween Fun!

I almost feel like I am late to the party regarding Halloween when I walk through the big box stores and see all their costumes, decorations and CANDY!  Halloween isn't typically a big card-sending event, but there may be some little ghost or goblin you would like to create a special treat for!  Stampin'Up! has lots of options with our Halloween products for cards, scrapbooking, table and party decor and oodles of treat bag/box options. Our Holiday Catalog is loaded-- check it out!

I decided to see what I could do with some of the stamps and paper. I chose the Cookie Cutter Halloween set because I already had the Cookie Cutter Christmas set and punch. Here's my card:

The Halloween paper is fun to play with as well. While there are lots of Halloween related art on one side of the paper, the other side can be used for anything. This gray brick pattern is wonderful!

Here's another card I did, using the Halloween art as is:

I'm not that crazy about Halloween personally, but I do know some people who are and it's their favorite holiday!  I'm glad Stampin'Up! is a company that is versatile and wide-ranging in its design process so all of us are happy! My favorite part of Halloween is the candy, speaking of which, we are wondering if we will have alot of trick-or-treaters in our new neighborhood. Our last one was pretty minimal at best most years.  Think I'll ask around the neighborhood before I stock up on too much candy as you know who will eat it all if I over-buy!
Happy Stampin'!
