Cornucopia of sweetness

I couldn't resist creating these sweet little treats! My kids classrooms and the school office staff were given these little goodies to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday!

Super easy and fun to do w/the kids. Soak Sugar Cones (for ice-cream) in Hot Water for 25 seconds. Then microwave these we cones for 25 seconds. They are HOT and Steaming when they come out.

Using a clean and new pencil, roll these hot lil cones and hold for a minute on a wax sheet lined cookie sheet. These take a loooong time to dry back out. I used the oven for 15 minutes at 200*. It was super soft still and allowed me to reshape anything I didn't like. This took another 30 min+ to cool down.

I filled these sweet little cornucopias with candy corn and caramel candy corn. I looked for the pumpkins I had, I think my kids ate them! Lol

Using our Autumn Accents Bigz Die and Big Shot with Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper. These sweet leaves popped out easy peasy and I used Stampin' Dimensional adhesive to adhere two to the plastic wrapped cornucopias. Wrapping them makes it easy to give out and keep whole! They are fragile and giving them out to 1st and 3rd graders, they need special care.

I like the look, the leaves, the sweetness while the EASE in creating them, a dream! (With 55+ leaving my home today, ease is a MUST!). Expect, too, for some breakage. I lost about a 1/4 of them in the process. HOT water is a must! Lol

I'm making these for our Thanksgiving table decorations! I hope YOUR Thanksgiving is sweet and bountiful!

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
