It's a Compliment with Elements of Style

When you duplicate someone or something, it is saying that you admire or like it so much that you would emulate it!

Nancy, who recently had a Private Class for me, looooved this card from our Idea Book (pg 113) with the stamp set Elements of Style stamp set. She wanted this card for her class and I struggle with duplicating anyone or thing.... Did you know our Catalog is really an Idea Book?? An award winning Idea Book!!

I used Crumb Cake paper for the base, Naturals White for the Neutral and Not Quite Navy for the frame insert. The Color Coach paired up the Red Riding Hood and I used our Aqua Pen and the RRH stamp pad.

I hope that you enjoy this duplication. How I changed it up a bit. Our First Edition DSP and Crochet ribbon... Apothecary Accents Framelits and Designer Frames Folder. I added the Delicate Designs Folder for the bottom of the card. The Big Shot is a very cool tool to have on hand, don't you think??

What would you duplicate from the Idea Book?? How would you change it?? Have fun, pick something to duplicate!

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
