National Waffle Day

Whether it was Eggo waffles, Bisquick, Glutten Free or the kind your Grandma made... There are few goods as good as the Waffle!! Here is my "Toast" to it (ha, ha, ha). I don't know about you, but this is a favorite food of mine!!

With my friend Crystal Effects I created this 3D wet syrup look! Start with Crumb Cake paper and punch with our Postal Punch these lil waffle wholes. I sponged the edges of the card and these punched waffle squares/wholes. I did more on the lil punched squares so that it'd look like it was deep (Belgian waffle??).

Here I used our SNAIL adhesive and laid it out like this. I then drizzled the Crystal Effects to look like syrup. More for ones like my hubby n son who love tons of syrup, "filling in the squares" to resemble the filled in squares.

Crystal Effects will go on murky and milky looking. If you don't brush it but leave it wet n 3D, it will dry that way anywhere from 30 min to an hour. I like to leave it overnight. It will dry your wet mark to look like a shade or two darker than the color of the cardstock it is on. What a simple but sweet card!

I hope you enjoy this sweet day. Toast it with something yummy!!

National Waffle Day

Today marks the anniversary of the day Cornelius Swarthout patented the waffle iron, way back in 1869. Little did he know, the world would be forever changed. Well, maybe not the whole world, but breakfast would be forever changed.

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
