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!

Hoo's having a birthday?

Hi friends!
I thought I would take a break from showing you new stuff today. I realized that can be exciting to see but also terribly frustrating as you have to wait to be get your hands on hand of it!  January 4th will be here all to soon, I fear!

I am always in need of birthday cards and I wanted to show you what you can do with Christmas product to make it non-holiday and therefore, more versatile!  Here's my card:

I used all Christmas product in this design, other than the sentiment and card stock.  The owl is from the "Cozy Critters" hostess set in the Holiday catalog; the background paper is from the "Warmth and Cheer" paper stack (as well as the washi tape!) and the stocking cap you have seen many times on my blog, also from the Holiday Catalog "Jolly Friends" bundle. I purposely picked a color scheme that would make this card appropriate for a guy or gal. As you can imagine, it wasn't very complicated to make and a breeze to assemble!  Have you thought about how to use your Christmas products in non-Christmas ways?  Try it, you might like it!

Regarding my blog, my traffic has exploded the last couple of months. I want to thank you for stopping by and seeing what I'm up to. I would love to hear from you!  You can leave comments below, shop in my online store or even join my team of Big Sky Stampers!  We have a great time and are already comprised of people spread far and wide!  The links to shop or join are to the right and I would love to get to know you!
Happy Stampin'!
