National S'Mores Day, Aug 10th

August 10th is National S'mores day and Natl Lazy Day! What a combo! Lol.

I could not resist celebrating today... So we skipped house work (lol) and book work... We have the fixin's for the S'mores for dessert tonight (broiling it in our broiler not facing the heat of our fire pit).

I couldn't resist making a fun n festive card to honor this National day...

Taking out lil Dots Folder I ran our Crumb Cake paper thru the folder n Big Shot. I did it do that the indents tithe dots were on the outside of the paper. I then scored it with our Simply Scored board in the middle of each line... It does come out just like graham crackers!!

I cut down Chocolate Chip paper to be a 1/2 inch smaller, around. I then did the same to the Very Vanilla. I used a sponge and our Chocolate Chip ink o make the toast marks.

With our scalloped oval punch I created teeth marks and the sponge really highlights the bite marks. Too using the sponge around the edge of the Vanilla really adds to the toasted feel. I then printed this cute sentiment on Vanilla cardstock and took more bite marks out of it.

If you look at the picture with two s'mores it is the adhesive that makes the layers pop more and I stuck with the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive I even left chocolate finger prints inside (ink) because you knowwww you can't help but get messy eating some S'mores!

Wishing you S'more smiles!!

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
