Travertine Tile Coasters

Natural and so pretty - everyone will want a set!!
Almost too pretty to put a glass on.... but it's not going to bleed or fade... cool!!
Using ONE stamp set for the set makes for a cohesive looking gift... so pretty!
Lovely as a Tree is lovely to me...
With Shimmer Paint... so pretty!!
Stampin with Stazon Ink our Lovely as a Tree set... I added a lil Shimmer Paint in Champagne.. WOW!!
Friends 24-7 stamp set is perfect for this project!! A lil Shimmer paint and it's stunning!

I did this craft for our MOPS group and used this Gold paint for the edges for that craft... it's darker than the shimmer on the Right... but both are pretty!

Medallion a~naturale... it's so pretty just stamped as it is...
More Medallion stampin - up close... a perfect gift for anyone on your list!!

I snagged these 4x4 Traverntine tiles from Home Depot and my retired brown StazOn ink... and went to work on this week's craft for our MOPS group. WOW - the results were great and ANYONE could do it!! These were a HIT with everyone at MOPS - even the 'non' crafty types!

I was torn between those w/ the Shimmer paint and the natural stone with just ink.. the hubby voted for the natural. I hope YOU like it and are inspired to bless those you love with something pretty this holiday season, house warming, wedding gifts and more... Too - I did 4 in way less than 10 minutes!! Covered the bottom w/ felt and it's stunning!

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
