For You...

An Amazing Day.... my dear friend's daughter Haley, 18, came out of her brain tumor surgery and they believe they were able to get ALL of the tumor... WOW... Prayers are answered!

My daughter is Bff's with her little sister Jordyn.. and we had Jordyn (who's four and a half) over for a play date so that Mom and Haley had one less thing to worry about. Jordyn wanted to make a card for her big sister... we picked out papers and our amazing new stamp set, from our Occasions Mini, Build A Blossom and our Blossom Petals Punch... This is what we came up with:

The Vintage Flower Adornments has these cute vintage flowers reminiscent of treasures you'd find in grandma's jewelry box. I think that the Very Vanilla flower is the perfect center on this Night of Navy Stamped flower on the Baja Breeze paper... our new paper 'Springtime Vintage' adds to the vintage feel of this card... our AMAZING Crocheted ribbon just wraps it up! The 'for you' comes from 'Clearly for You' stamp set out of our Occasions Mini.. and BAM... a simple, elegant, feminine and vintage card.. easy and fun to do and give away!

I adhered the ribbon with a simple dash of our SNAIL adhesive and used our Dimensional adhesives to place the leaves of the flower and the center on top.. it's subtle but really Pops!


Now... our Designer Series Paper is TWO sided!! I adore that! This is the opposite side of the other card.. I then snagged the Vintage Brads and made this a Spinning flower card! I really like this - I changed it up by adding the Night of Navy on Very Vanilla.. I also added an additional petal on the flower for samples I made for my Inky Finger girls in the Antelope Valley.
I just love how with little Jordyn's help we had fun and created this stunning and easy card... it's hard to image that this, that looks so detailed, took a mere 10 minutes!! Great supplies, punches, papers and inks really finish it off... I do love what I do!!

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
