Yeah! It's December! I've been making Christmas cards and samples since July so I'm kinda relieved December is finally here! I will be peppering my blog with more samples to inspire you! Here's one for today:
This is a rendition of the popular Z-fold card style. You take a regular card base (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") and score at 2-1/8" and 4-1/4". You take another piece that is 1-1/2" x 8-1/2" and score in the same places. You fold these opposite each other (see the picture above) and then decorate to your heart's content! I used some retired Christmas paper for my Z fold piece and the trees and then went back to my favorite Candy Cane Lane paper. I punched out the gingerbread men on Early Espresso paper and hand drew the faces, etc. Try this out sometime! It's a really fun card!
And in big news...... Just what we needed.... another sale! This one is bigger, better and blingier (I'm pretty sure that is a word !) Stampin'Up! decided to give us all another reason to buy some more Christmas paper, stamps and embellishments and even reached back into the inventory of surplus product from last spring! You should take a look at all the deals and see if there's something on your wish list that is there now.
Here's a link!
Year-End Close Out Sale!
As always, you can get online and submit an order (the above link works for that), or let me know if there's something you would like me to order for you.
My plan is to be really thoughtful and purposeful this year with Christmas shopping, meals, activities, baking, etc. I don't want to be run ragged!!!! I hope you are looking forward to this wonderful time of year as well!
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!
