Glitter Gone Baddddd

Oatmeal and Glitter when mixed...

Boo Boo faces from daddy's punishing the glitter palooza...
Sal's now sparkly couch... sigh - boys do not like to sparkle..


Sparkly tears..



Coughing as the glitter is in her nose, ears, eyes, hair, tush and more... and daddy did punish her..

OK So I dropped my son off at Kindergarten while the hubby watched the girls... I returned to see two crying lil girls sitting on a 'break' and one angry daddy. Trying to not giggle too much I told my girlfriend (whom I was on the phone w/) that I had to run. This is what I've discovered:
~ Glitter from Stampin' Up! is very, very, very sparkly.
~ It sticks with OUT glue very very very well.
~ Getting it out of the carpets, my son's play couch takes more than your normal vacuuming.
~ Bathing the girls took 5 head washings and it STILL is in their hair.
~ You may need to shower them as the water that has collected the run off glitter is filled again with glitter - reapplying said glitter.
~ That YOU will soon become covered in glitter after bathing and cleaning up said glitter.
~ Your kids will have glitter in the oddest places... tushies that were covered in diapers to ears.
~ Try to love them and NOT laugh at the situation - because the action was 'very naughty'...
~ LOCK UP your glitter!! Sigh...
I hope you'll see two of my very best creations covered in glitter (it's hard to capture in a picture) and know that I'm one sparkly but blessed mother.
Toodle... looooo ~ J

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
