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!

Celebration Time!

Hi stampin' friends!
I have something fun and new to show you today!  I'm working my way through the new annual catalog and trying out some of the products that have been on my wish list. This particular stamp set and thinlit combo caught my eye because I always need birthday cards! It's called "Celebration Time".

There are a lot of cut out options for the framelits and the stamps nicely coordinate to use or not use!  You can make cakes, tags, packages, etc. by mixing up the different pieces. Here's a closer look at the set so you can see the variety.

Just staring at this for a few minutes, I think I could come up with 10 different ideas in a matter of minutes. You can die cut only, stamp only or combine the two for so many different images and possibilities.Of course, there is also the option of using this for any occasion to celebrate, not just a birthday!  I can see wedding cards with the fabulous cake images and even graduation, or a retirement party, etc. We love to celebrate and this bundle will inspire you!

On my two cards above, I also used some new products including the wooden plank embossing folder and some Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. Don't be afraid to combine products from different suites when you are creating! That's a big part of the process, figuring out what goes together. Sometimes it isn't quite what you had in mind and other times you have a very happy surprise of creative genius. It's always fun to experiment.

Please contact me if you are interested in this set, receiving a catalog, talking about papercrafting in general or signing up as a demonstrator with Stampin'Up!  I always have time to answer a question or provide some help and inspiration. With the Internet, we are all connected in a way that makes the distances between us shrink and somehow, some way, it feels like we are right next door chatting about a shared interest!

Hope you have a great day today!
