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!

A Pocketful of....

Hey friends!
So far, summer is bringing out the best in me.... I'm creating, exercising, biking, seeing new countryside, visiting with friends, getting a few chores done, etc. I no longer have a rigid schedule any time of the year, but summer still seems laid back and with more time to be spontaneous and flexible. I'm having some time to try some ideas that ruminate in my mind and are finally making it to paper and ink.  I wanted to feature a different set of stamps and framelits today that didn't catch my eye at first, but now that I've spent a little time with them, I think I'm a fan!  Have a look:

This is from the "Pocketful of Sunshine" set!  Since it's a pocket, I decided to put something in it including a tag, a stamped image of cash and I will add a gift card when I use it.  I wanted to be traditional with my color scheme and make a blue jeans "pocket" so I used "Dapper Denim" for my pocket piece, which was a no brainer. I then used some craft White ink to stamp the stitching on the pocket and of course added just a touch of bling.  I wanted to make this a bit more gender neutral so paired the Dapper Denim with Lemon Lime Twist and used pieces of Designer Series Paper from the Eastern Palace Suite.  I used Garden Green ink for my "cash" to try to make it look a little more realistic.

Here's a look at the bundle so you can see all the different options for creating a project:

I have some more ideas for this set and summer time is the perfect time for sunglasses and sun images!  So, back to the stamp room and drawing board!

I hope you have a fun weekend ahead of you. Summer time is something to savor but it sure goes by fast, especially when it is so short in Montana!

Happy Stampin'!
