Las Vegas.. let us shine some light..

During times of tragedy, sadness, loss... we have to find ways to find the light.  To lead others to the light.  To offer a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold as we try to come to terms with darkness.

The world is more intimate than many realize. The Las Vegas attack has had a world wide impact, affecting many families in our area greatly.

This Saturday is World Card Making Day. We will be creating 4 handmade cards to keep. We will also be making duplicates, sending 4 handmade cards to the hospitals in Las Vegas that hosts the survivors and families. It's something small, something we can do to send some love and light during to this dark situation.
Please Join Us.. you can create along side of us This Saturday as we #MakeACardSendACard and you can also deliver handmade cards (Thinking of You, Thank You cards requested) for me to include in my shipment to a Stampin' UP! Demonstrator friend in the Las Vegas Area.
 A handmade card is a hug folded in small art.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
