For The Soldiers... Our Heros!

I find that many times I find myself focusing on my own life, it's challenges and struggles and I don't look past them... easily done as life is busy and stressful.  I was raised to look beyond myself and look to other's needs.  Having been blessed with this upbringing, when I'm blue I try to look to other's needs.  


OK Every One... Come and Support Our Soldiers... I'm setting up this FUN Filled Morning! I'd like to make over 500 Cards for our Soldiers! RSVP YOUR Spot and if you are bringing anyone else to this FREE Event on Saturday, July 7th! Click on my Site below, then the Calendar and Click on the RSVP to mark your spot(s)! Questions?? Call me at either number! Blessings! (I have 4 different troops who've contacted me asking for cards on top of my usual donation to For The Troops! FUN!)


My family is blessed to know a few of our amazing Americans serving abroad.  My cousin's son, David, is serving another tour in the Middle East, my friend's nephew, DJ, is, again, going to serve abroad, a high school friend's daughter, Amber, is on her way to serve.... Whew... they are one of the many that make it so we can live free... Thank You Service Men and Women for ALL you do... you are in our Prayers!


I am blessed to have a dear friend who is now a widow.  Her husband served two tours in Iraq.  Aaron left behind a legacy in his amazing wife, MaryAnn, and their two beautiful children.  Serve and Protect.  Aaron is missed... here is his grave site... and I dedicate all of my Soldier Card events to his honor.

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
