Another of my swaps... Going lacy

Did I mention that I LOVE our Color Coach?? I may start out with a color and then find the coordinating colors for the card (or outfit lol)

Here I started with Crumb Cake ink and Paper and the Color Coach showed Chocolate Chip as the monochromatic color balance for it.

With our new Delicate Doily Sizzlits, the Big Shot and the Delicate Designs Folder helped to create this lovely card. I punched out the doilies in both both Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake. I ran the Chocolate Chip paper thru the folder to create the lacy edge. I thought the larger doily was too plain do I stamped, with Crumb Cake, the Gossamer Lace lil stamp. Sooo cute and it really tied it all together.

The crochet lace ribbon we sell sealed the deal. I alternated the doilies and created this card. I stamped the sentiment and punched it out with our Decorative Label punch. I stamped the Gossamer lace over the Garden Green sentiment from the Perfectly Penned greeting set.

I hope you feel all lacy. I love this new line of lace and doilies, don't you??

During convention people asked if Arabella helped stamp my cards. Lol. My 6yr old,Genevieve, and hubby pushed the lil chads out of the punched doilies with our stylus. My 4 yr old, Carina, ran about picking up the 45 cards worth of chads that ended up on the floor and not in my trash bibs. Lol. My 14 month old helped turn the handle on the Big Shot. My 8 yr old son, Sal, skateboarded outside telling me that this card was too girly. Lol. They all help, in their own way.

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
