Swinging Fall Leaves

I just LOVE this stamp set!! I used my classes as of this week and did a Pastel Run as I was challenged by the LNStamper gang... I hope you like this!!

Simply stamped the Tree in Soft Suede. I stamped the leaves in versa mark and Popped Pastels in Mustard, Old Olive and Garden Green. I then placed it on Dusty Durango and stamped the birds, bird house, butterflies and boots in dusty Durango. I then punched the large brad in for the tire swing and used twine to finish off the rope.

I hope as Fall comes (it's hot here in So. California)... that we'll be able to remember our childhood and swing thru the trees. (hugs)

Recipe:
Paper: Dusty Durango, Very Vanilla
Inks: Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Versa Mark
Stamps: Branch Out and Holiday Best
Accessories: Twine and large brads

Challenge: How do you see Fall?

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
