Lolly my Ornament, please

I like this clean and simple look. I'm more of a frilly girl but going clean is fun, too!

Here with a Gumball Green cardstock base is a simple but elegant looking card. Using our Be Of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper in 1" strips I scored with the Simply Scored board at every 1/4".

Lolly's will stay together with the help of a Hot Glue gun. I glued the edges and then the Lolly to the cardstock base. Then our Ornament stamp set and coordinating punch allows for a quick punch with 4 different options. I hot glued that down too the top of the Lolly.

The Cute and Curly Greetings stamp set stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink. I like how it fits the bottom of the card, is clear and large enough but still cute and curly. The Cherry Cobbler scalloped polka dot ribbon wraps it all up. I used a dash of hot glue to hold it in place.

Go Clean and Easy with Elegance this holiday season and have FUN!

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
