Manly Celebrations

This family filled weekend started off with us celebrating my Father In Laws 78th birthday... I couldn't resist the urge to sparkle - even a masculine card!
 I created this easy and masculine Birthday card using our Crumb Cake cardstock as a base... I ran it thru our lattice impression plate.  I sponged some Chocolate Chip ink to age it and show the definition of the pattern... using my Color Coach I used the Chocolate Chip paper, the Garden Green and then stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and our new stamp set from the Occasions Mini and our Vintage Brads....
I couldn't resist... I pulled out the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch and after sponging the Chocolate Chip I spritzed it... the shimmer didn't detract from the masculine-ness of the card but did add a lil flare... I just LOVE this simple and guy inspired card... my father in law is a simple man who loves his family... this simple card really reflects his style. 

I used the Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere each layer and with the texture of the lattice impression....

Daisy Girl Scouts and me...

Today was a BIG day in my life, my daughter's life and the lives of our 11 lil Daisy Girls... I was roped into being a Daisy Leader for my Daughter Genevieve's group of friends at school.  I'm not big on ceremony - not in the least - and far from a fraternity type person... or so I thought...

We had our Daisy girls in their Investiture (new lingo for me) ceremony.  I created this fun and easy little certificate for our girls.  I ADORE our My Digital Studio.... with four sick kids at home today, in between ironing 11 little vests with various badges and pinning each one.... I was STILL able to create this impressive little Certificate... and it's so lovely... it makes me just smile.

I'm not prone to big emotions or tears but this day, this sweet group of girls, the ceremony, my baby... I teared up several times!!

So, my big girl, my forever baby, with a fever was made a Daisy today... and I'm forever so proud!!
Genevieve stayed home, with her sibs, with a fever but as the Leader of the her troop, and her very important ceremony - we went in for this and were so blessed because of it!

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
