School Starts

It's that Season... I'm whipping out Fall inspired decorations, Apples, Pumpkins will soon follow... I'm decorating with School Books, School Paper and Preparing for the new school year!  (What?!?!  Didn't you know School starting is a Celebrations Season?!?!!)
 
Last night, I worked our PTA School Open Evening where I am Head of the Spirit Wear Committee and LOVE creating new clothes that our Uniformed Students can wear on Fridays... another fun outlet for my creative spirit.. lol.  Thisss year I have an actual team and WOW did the new Spirit Wear Line come out Amazing!
 
In Prep for the New School Year and the three classes my four youngest will attend at two schools - lol - I've created this Banner... it helps me to feel connected to this new season in life.  My son will start 3rd Grade, one of our daughters 1st, our other daughter will be in PreK too!  It gladdens me to see how wonderful they are doing, how great they are and the loving hearts they have at this age.  It saddens me to realize that time is like trying to hold sand in my fingers during a storm, it blows away so quickly with little to hold onto.
 
I hope that this blog header, created with our easy to use and fun MDS2 inspires you to have FUN with this Holiday Season.  Yes, it's a holiday... we look back at the past school year and summer, the changes in our kids and ourselves... the summer of warm memories, beaches, kids fighting, pulling hair and complaining that they couldn't have ice cream all day long.. lol... So here, with 15 mintues, one Program and some meeee time to get creative... I created this Post Card and used it for my New Banner (for here and my FB business page). 
 
So I'm sending them back and though I'll miss them, I look forward to schedules, the kids being tuckered out by books, teachers and friends... sigh... time to clean my home, quality time with my baby girl (who is my last lil angel).  So raise your cup with me, whip out some Apples, sharpen some pencils, stock up on Composition Paper books.... Fall is right around the corner and School Is IN Session!!  Whoot!  Whoot! (said the mom with 6 kids - lol)
I created this slightly different version for the FB Pg... 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
