Hi there stampin' friends,
It's Thursday and occasionally I like to feature "Throw Back Thursday", a tradition that I believe started on Facebook. It gives you a chance to post an old photo or memory that you think of fondly and share it with others. I think in this "in between" period between the old and new catalog, it's fun to look back at some old favorite stamps! I sell cards locally in the Gallatin Valley and am always looking for a new idea in my old stash! Here are a few I came up with recently!
When we moved a year ago, I really cleaned out my supply of old 12 x 12 paper, some of which I had been hanging on to for nearly 20 years. I let some papercrafting friends go through it first, then the rest went to my daughter's school where she is a first grade teacher. If you have anything useful for an elementary school teacher, you can put it in the teacher's lounge and it will be gone by noon! I also kept plenty of the paper and have fun going through some of those wonderful papers to make cards. I love the freedom of not sticking to a particular catalog's lineup of products but using whatever suits my fancy.
Don't forget about your stash o' stuff! It's lurking back in the cupboard, closet or drawer and would love to see the light of day!
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!
