A Gift for Our teacher

We were excited to hear that our Carina is getting the same Pre K teacher that our son, Sal, had at Christian Preschool of Thousand Oaks! Mrs Curtis has a son who plays in the same Flag Football league and seeing her over the years has been a blast! She has seen me through 2 Pregnancies, a major car accident where two of my girls and I were TBoned. We just love Mrs. Curtis and our preschool!

Carina wanted to make a present and this is the fun lil gift that we made for her. It was fun and easy to do with my quality time and my Preschooler! We decorated this pad of paper with the DSP from Twitterpated in Riding hood red color scheme.

I stamped our two apples from the Perfectly Preserved stamp set on Shimmer Paper in Riding Hood Red ink and stems in Old Olive. With our snips I cut out the apples and then restamped the apples alternating design per page.

I Hot Glued this DSP on the top of the pad. I used the hot glue to adhere the subtle sparkled apples to the top of the pad. Iiii love this sweet lil pad and can't wait for the intro class tomorrow morning! One thing teachers sooo send home are notes! I hope this is just her style! Whoo Hoo! Mrs Curtis and preschool!

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
