Scrapbook Night.. Fun Fundraiser for EARTHS.. Part Deux..

My Fun Give Away... I do love Valentines... and I hope to see some of these ladies at my upcoming events!!
Make and Take... our Principle, Jennifer Boone, wanted to do a Christmas Scrap Catch Up Night.. I created this fun Make and Take spread.. each person was able to make a 2 page spread of 12x12 scrapbooks.. using our Cherry Cobbler 12x12 paper - the Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper from our Idea book, our Old Olive stripped ribbon, Old Olive and Crumb Cake paper... I used, from our Clearance Rack, the mini binder clips in Chocolate Chip, Old Olive or Whisper White as an additional accessory... the Delightful Decorations Stamp set w/ matching Ornament Punch was a bonus... for those who don't celebrate Christmas they could use these pages for another purpose... or add them w/ Stampin' Dimensional and a gel pen line (simulating an ornament hook)... all had fun making this!!

The Results.. my 'sample' had the Ornaments floating w/ Stampin' Dimensional weren't attached... this paper is stunning and neutral w/ the polka dots.. the biggest challenge?? Finding which four sides of the Designer Series Paper they wanted on their pages!!
Fit this like a Puzzle.. the Designer Series Paper, Crumb Cake and Old Olive papers were cut to the size of 4" x 6" - so photos would need to be trimmed but who doesn't trim their photos.. and it fit like a smooth puzzle.. love it!!

Adonna, on the Right, who helped plan this event and Leah (who helped w/ set up and more..)where having such fun.. laughter abounded, music and food... we can't wait for the next event!!

Our Principle (look at that Red Hair!!), Bev Simmons (my daughter's preschool teacher and co-chair on our school's Foundation committee) were with the other ladies laughing the night away.. it was supposed to end at 10pm but we didn't get out of there until after 11:30 - the fun was non stop!!

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
