Family Photo Card

The Great things in life often come back to my family...
This year I've decided to reach out Digitally to my family and friends... I created this card and will print it for some of my non-digital family but to those that are far away (we have family in Italy, Australia, Germany, Mongolia, Japan, China...to the East Coast) I wanted to reach then with a collection of some of my favorite images - my family!
 
My Digital Studio makes creating a lovely card fun and easy!  I love that you can pick any paper, pre-set layout or easily create your own (like I did here), frame the pictures, add stamps, sentiments, text, etc.  Making it into a Jpeg to share on Facebook, email and printing and sending out is ideal! 
 
Go Green!
Send out Digital Cards this year to those who'd appreciate it! 
(Print it for those who want one on their fridge!)
Printing is easier than ever - you can order it right from MDS's Program and Stampin' Up! will ship it right to you... or (if you are a procrastinator, like me) order it for same day printing from your favorite photo processing center. 
(I recommend printing it in a mat print and not glossy, it looks better - in my opinion.)
 
I did a Dramatic and Non-Traditional family collage with a Black and Grey Brocade Paper and Bashful Blue mat on the photos.  This also picks up the blue in our family photo this year.  The dash of Real Red comes from the Color Coach recommendation of Real Red with Bashful Blue!
 

 
From my family to yours... may your Holiday Season be filled with love, laughter, and fun!
Blessings,
Jamie AR Albanese and my amazing family

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
