Supporting Our Soldiers!

My Girlfriend. Kym, asked me to aide her in making a card for her nephew who was graduating Bootcamp and preparing for his assignment... she wanted Camo and this is what we came up with:
With River Rock Paper we made a Tri Folded Card - folding the first third at 2.25" and the last third at the same measurement - creating a base of a 5.5" card. With Always Artichoke we sponged on a camo look. Too - this cardstock we created the Front and Inner Tab of the card.
Gold Embossing was fun to do with this amazing stamp set 'Courage' from our Idea Book and her daughter loved the 'Magic' of seeing brown powder turn into gold! The Gold almost blended too much so sponging the Artichoke on and rubbing Off the gold and bam - it really POPPED!
The Inner Saying 'Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities, because it is the quality that guarantees all others.' ~ Winston Churchill really hits it mark on this card! I love Tri Folded cards as the sentiment is hidden behind the image/picture on the front... a lil 'surprise' and it leaves a ton of space for the family to write in! Gooo DJ, thanks for supporting our country!

I've made this card for my Cousin's Son who is serving his second tour and wanted to give Props to David Robison for serving to protect our country and way of life! Thanks David!

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
