Labor Day Special

Today is Labor day and it is our annual attendance to our friends, the Wheelock family's, Pool Party, BBQ Potluck party! With nearly 20 families, the amazing lagoon, rock slide and more... It's a blast! (What an honor to be invited year after year!)

I contributed my favorite Sweet n Sassy Beans, yummmm! I also created this cute Rice Krispy Cupcakes boats. I stamped these toppers (my kids said the cupcakes became boats lol).


Labor Day

Started in New York City in 1882, Labor Day was made a national holiday in 1894 as a means to reconcile with disgruntled laborers in the aftermath of the Pullman Strike. Since then, Labor Day has become a gift for all you hardworking men and women, so take advantage of the time off to float in the pool, lounge in the hammock, and eat your weight in potato salad, because tomorrow it's back to the grind!
 
Here is a Topper I made using Toothpicks and our new Butterfly stamp and Punch... With Melon Mambo bright pink - it really Pops!  I topped it off with a lil pearl at the top of each butterfly.  We created two toppers to appeal to the guys and girls in our group... with Bright colors topping the bright lil goodies... see the MDS2 Recipe Attached, too... Yumm and Super Easy!
My kids and theirs.... My girls and I... FUN was had by ALL!!  Sun was a highlight, food, laughter, connections and more!  Labor day was a labor of love with this gang!

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
