Beachy Birthday Wishes!

I doooo love sea shells. We have decorated our front bathroom with a nautical theme, even Stampin the wall with shells and craft ink!

Here is a beach card, very summery! I used our Simply Scored to score every 1/4" on a 1 1/2" piece of our First Edition Designer Series Paper. I stamped these sea shells with Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake paper. I like, too, how the sea shells have a newsprint in it and the DSP mimics this! It's great to be so coordinated with so little effort!

How does one make these "Lollies" stick?!?!!!! I've tried every adhesive and they have all popped up! At a Regional seminar that Stampin' Up! Put on last November in Las Vegas area theyyyyy used hot glue!! So, I love the way it worked so quickly and easily!!

I then stamped, with Chocolate Chip ink this round sand dollar on Crumb Cake paper and cut it out. I used the hot Glue gun, again!! I added a small adhesive backed pearl for the center.

Our Perfectly Paired stamp sentiments were ideal for this birthday card! I stamped the front of the envelope with the Crumb cake and the back flap the same but added the sand dollar in Chocolate Chip to the back.

John's aunt love the birthday card and it was a blast making it in class! I hope you feel the summer love! We did and the beach trip was a perfect hit of summer!

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
