Gettin' Organized

The LNStampers group recently had a discussion on how they organize their Stampin' areas n supplies. It inspired me to go hunting.... For the way that fit me, our home and my style!

Our family room houses a bulk of my Stampin' goodies, with two 6' dark cherry wood bookshelves that house my wall of Paper, my stamps, stamp pads, etc. I'd struggled to find some system that would hold all of my accessories.

As you can see the plastic containers are not ideal. They are weak, mismatched and just ugly! Sooooo I went on-line. Now, THAT is a frustrating medium to hunt in!!!

I located Martha Stewarts storage solutions but they really didn't work for myyy needs (and sooo over priced!). I did find these dark cherry cabinets for crafting at homedecorations.com an the price was less than half, the sizes FIT (!!!) where I currently had plastic containers, they were reassembled and Real, Solid Wood!!

So they came in Monday evening and it was like Christmas!! I opened the boxes and the only assembly was screwing in the wheels on the bottom!

I started to organize my storage, putting supplies, accessories and tools away.... And it looks smashing! Sooooo sharp!! It matches the furniture with the wall of Stampin' and my dark cherry desk!

I just bubbled over with glee!!!!! Here is a peak at how it looks now!! Get happy with me!! Lol

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
