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!

To An Amazing Mother

Hi Stampers!
Well, we successfully watched and participated in the great celebration that is college graduation for our son!  What fun and what joy!  My weekend was full of smiles and laughs and even a couple tears as I thought back on his life and all he has accomplished. Whew!

I am back to another love... all things paper!  My decor and cards were a big hit and added so much festivity to the day. It was all fun to make and fun to use from the napkin holders to the posters to the banner, to the pictures on the table cards.  I ended up giving a lot of it away to the guests so they could have some mementos from the day.

I have a great Mother's Day card idea for you today.  I wanted to use the "That's the Tag" set again, as I had previously for a mother's day card. There are some love cut outs that can be used on the card itself or on a tag. I used both here:

I stuck with a simple color scheme of Watermelon Wonder (retiring May 31st) and Smoky Slate.  I used some silver foil paper and ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration freebie lineup to make my card sparkle a bit more. I particularly like the sentiment on this card because it can be used for any mom in your life... your daughter, your aunt, your friend, etc.  So many of us don't have our moms to send a card to any longer, but we still know some great ones!

Today is a fun day for me and my customers!  I'm hosting a New Catalog Open House  where you can stop by anytime from 4-7 p.m., grab a catalog, make a bookmark for your catalog featuring the new In-Colors and see some cards and product that I purchased during the preorder. If you are near Bozeman, I hope you can attend!  Contact me for more details!

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek!  I recently passed the 50,000 views point which just blows my mind!  I'm honored and very humbled that so many people are interested in my ideas and projects. Being a Stampin'Up! demonstrator has certainly opened up a brand new world of friends, creative endeavors and fun!  You should consider it!  There's more information at the top of this blog, on the right!

Finally, here's a picture featuring the culmination of all the fun and celebration on Saturday!  Montana State's tag line has been "Mountains and Minds" and we have both in abundance here. Congratulations Sam and Kristin!
