Flying Butterflies!

I sooo love butterflies! When I married my hubby and we started our new family we started off with the release of butterflies when we kissed! It was lovely! What a way to start off our married life and family, new life, new beginnings!

I now use butterflies in much of my style, decorating and crafting! So, though I doooo love my coffee I can't live on it, lol. I do love the idea of the "sippy" cup and measuring my water (I would get so dehydrated when pregnant and needed to monitor/measure that I took in enough water).

Often, too, with kids and clumsy crafting times (distracted moms and all) I would get upset when water would spill on my projects!! (Once, my hubby accidentally spilled a cup of his water on a wedding invite order damaging over 95 of the 200 hand stamped, embossed and blinged invites!! Never again, I say!!) So I love these insulated cups from Starbucks! The are double insulated and created so that you can write your desired cold drink order on the inside.

I couldn't resist and now my kids, myself and many a friend has received these cups! It's easy, fun and great for tea, lemonade and water! With 24 oz I can get my needed water in, too!

So using our great double sided Designer Series Paper, our lovely Beautiful Wings Embosslits, our mini glue dots (they are clear and great adhesives!), and the bling is totally me with our Rhinestone jewels it just POPS! Being on the inside of the insulation, too, it stays dry, pretty and sparkly! The great thing, too, is our DSP is DOUBLE SIDED with different patterns that coordinate!! Awesome! This busy mom loves when I don't have to think too hard!

I thennnn had to fight my girls an son for my fun cup! Lol. I then nabbed the 16oz cups and made them personalized with their name, our Glitter paper and the Alphabet dies for our Big Shot! Easy, pretty, personalized (causing less fights!), and fun to drink from!! (Dehydration is a real problem for kids these days!)

I hope YOU have some fun, make it personal and shine! Don't forget to drink your water ( and look good doing so!) helping the environment is just an added bonus!!

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
