30 Cards... One Morning... TONS of FUN!!

Our Holiday Mini has this AMAZING background stamp... Until the END of the YEAR... I used our Color Coach and w/ our Crumb Cake Paper it reccomended RidingHood... I like it but it looked great w/ Cherry Cobler, too!!

This is the END result when you open my Tri Fold card... the Bravo Burgundy with the Heat Embossed Gold... it's amazingly rich and PERFECT for the Holidays!!
Embossing Gold on Gold paper is one of the most luxurious looks a card can have... This is the Middle of the Card...
THIS is HOW the Card Starts... this is the FIRST image you see when you open the envelope... This warm and welcoming stamp set is ideal - even for a California Girl!! (We do have our mountains.. lol) Again - Gold on Gold... stunning!

I LOVE our Cherry Cobler... taking our New Holiday Wheel in our Mini (Now thru the end of the Year!) I 'loaded' the ink in Cherry Cobbler.. ran it across Very Vanilla - tore the top and flicked in the C.Cobbler ink... with our stunning and traditional Holiday paper... I do so love the look of this card and I love that it's my hubby's favorite of the 6 designs we did for our 30 card morning!

Part Deux... 30 Cards.. ONE day... TONS of FUN!

Our Snowflake Impression plate is already a favorite of mine... I adore our tree stamp set (it can't ever go away - it's an amazing stamp set... in our Idea Book)... Here we stamped the sentiment and the tree on a Whisper White paper in Garden Green... then I ran it thru the Snowflake impression plate.. I moved UP the snowflakes so that it didn't overtake the words... I love the white dry embossed... the green tree (we ARE in California) and the sentiment is so perfect!!
I DO love Texture... OUR Big Shot gives you that and more!! Here w/ the embossing plate I did the dots to match the poka dotted ornaments... and with our White Gel Pen - I created the strings that tied them on!! This was a PUNCH card.... the new punch is perfect for sentiments!

HERE we did the Swirl impression plate to tie into the 'Joy' Swirled ornament... I love that the Stampin' Dimensionals make this card POP and they really hold punched items to the texture on the impression!!
Doesn't One love to get TWO cards in ONE?? With our Tag die... and our Pointsetta impression plate... this stamp set fit perfectly to create this look of two cards in ONE... I do love giving a lil extra to those I love.. and these aren't traditional holiday card colors but I do so love the look!

Bashful Blue card, Real Red and Whisper White paper... I stamped the sentiment in Bashful blue and the pointsettia was colored in w/ our Real Red Markers that Paint like a loaded paint brush... the simple white ribbon.. sigh... I do feel fancy with this card.. it was a favorite of my friend Donna's... The Stampin' Spot made it easy to ink and the Marker made making the pointsettia red.. easy peasy!! Stamp While the Tag is Closed... opening to that lil Tree on the inside... a FUN card to MAKE!!

One Stamp Set... Several Impression Plates... TONS of FUN!

I love how the Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Wild Wassabi (sounds like a yummy meal - lol) and Very Vanilla... create this FUN card... Each Stamp from this Hostess Set can have a different feel (literally w/ the texture plates) and look..
This reminds me of a fancy envelope w/ a delicate stamp... I love this simple but elegant card!

I adore our distressed impression plate, it really looks like wood... I love the lil 'hole' in this tree!

This is cute but could even be given to a man... again... I'm 'Impressed' (bad pun - eh) with the look and feel of this card!!
The Same Papers, The Same Inks, The Same Stamp Set... different look n feel w/ the impression plates making a big impression!!

I love this... will be adding more when we do new curtain treatments... simple and elegant...
We did a wall celebrating our family and this is where we started...


My family and friends were convinced this rub on was wrought iron!! My mom didn't believe me and kept feeling it.. I like how our family is like this image.. growing tall and strong..

My girls' room... I love this on their door... a simple and fun way to show their Fem. Power!! (Ask my daughters... they know they are NOW princesses and Mommy is the Queen.. lol)

My son... my lil angel (we have another one on the way - he'll be joining this room with his brother).... I love how it's a reminder to us how he'll be a superhero some day... he already is to me... he makes my heart fly daily!

Vinyl Rub-Ons Rub me the Right Way!!

I Love the look of this on my dinning nook... My cousin was wondering where the projector was.. he thought the image was so lovely that it was being projected on the wall.. what a fun look!
I LOVE this saying in my kitchen... often it's were life is falling apart about dinner time w/all of my lil ones... and our RubOns in Chalkboard... makes quite an impression.. parties and guests visiting... my cousin was surprised to see the menue... his wife loved their names up as a greeting when they came in.. and during Stampin' events or Parties.. people love to have a description of the foods prepared!!

These lil flourishes coming out of my crown molding... it's amazing how MEN and Women love it... my CPA hubby and like minded men love the lil touches... me too!!


It's what I do... I'm a family gal... I have an amazing family... and love showing them off!!

I love this reminder that it's not all about homework, carpooling, sports, dancing, etc... it's about a safe and loving place to be to dream and be safe!
Definately Decorative... I may not be an interior decorator... but I do so love these sayings... they do the decorating on their own!! Check out our line HERE:

Shimmer Paper, ReInkers, Embossing and BAM... a FUN and Stunning Card!

My Cousin's family came for a visit.. I snagged his wife and daughter and gave a lil lesson... this technique never gets old... it is so stunning... our Fifth Ave. Floral was a set Chloe picked out, Vanessa picked the card color and we had fun... who wouldn't love receiving this card....

Simply Adorned and STUNNING!!

I adore wearing my family on my chest... I'm stopped when ever I wear this necklace... People are amazed at the Stunning look, the COST Savings (people spend wayyy more money than we charge for a lesser product) and how it's double sided... I give my card (when on vacation to a trip to Target) and people can't get over what a great gift for others.. and themselves this is!!
My Five lil angels.. I simple take the 'sample' picture page w/ my print order and cut out the mini picture... I layered it on a black paper stamped w/ a silver print... Wearing those I love on my heart... it makes me feel comfort and peace.... they are always with me!

We released live butterflies at our wedding (near 10 years ago) and I love this lil representative of our new life together...


Graduation ala Brayer...

My Hubby's Cousin's daughter was heading off to UCLA.. hence the colors of this FUN brayered Card... a few Punches.. this card really POPS!
A simple Punched Square, a punched circle... the circle is popped up with a Stampin' Dimensional... then a black twine is tied after being untwisted... I love this POP on a stunning but simple card...

I simply Used Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Marina Mist.. stamped the Graduation stamp w/ Versa Mark on a glossy white paper.. I loaded my brayer w/ the colors (lightest to darkest) and then ran it across.. people are always amazed at how a brayer can really make a card pop!!


Our Family's Newest Addition... Lincoln


My beloved Niece had the most adorable, newest member of the Dodger's Team.. Keep an EYE out folks - give him 18 years and he'll be a Dodger (if his Momma has a say in the matter - lol). I sent her a lil pkg for the newest addition... and included this. Finding that I was trying to tie it to the Monkey Theme his parent's had for his room.. I used our Wood Background Stamp in Early Espresso on Bashful Blue.. I like the seperated look of his name.. such FUN!

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
