If I were to list the many, many things I love about My Digital Studio... I'd go on for ages!!  I just LOVE the simple and yet impressive projects that I can do!  As a busy mom of 6 - with schools, sports, activities and more that I'm running about to do... even IIIII can do something as cute and amazing as THIS Invite to our kid's birthday party!!  I hope that you enjoy this fun lil invite... I'm running low on time and though I LOVE Stampin' Up!'s printing services.. I'm popping this over to Costco to print so that I can hand out THIS Week - like tomorrow!!

Too - MDS allows to create your projects as a .jpeg!  So, to expedite the invite hand out - I'm sending this via email to the parent's of the kids... who knows WHAT a child can do with an invitation.. so this will be a great follow up to the parents to RSVP!  I just LOVE MDS!!

Girly Girl Filled with LOVE!!
This is a brief, sneak of all the cards we did at my most recent class... I'll be breaking them down the days down and will pop in some how-to's to make these easy and fun techniques!

Fannnn tastic cards... I was inspired after watching a movie based in the South... love the vintage feel of our Designer Series Paper, our new Big Shot/Stampin' Up! Die...
During Sale A Bration these cards are FREE!!  Now, what you do with them is up to you!!

Our Materials are ideal in the Big Shot but too to make a stunning accent on this card... they match our Designer Series Papers... making a card easy and stunning!  The Antique Accents from our Accessories adds a lil something with the mini brad 'buttons' and the lil safety pin thru the heart... the Blush Smooch we have in our Occasions Mini, too... a lil sparkle and style and dash of color!

This is the other 1/2 of the Free Cards wtih our Sale A Bration... the Material and Crochet Ribbon, our Vintage Brads.. and sponging Cherry Cobbler across the die cut bottom really adds a lil something fabooo... doesn't it??
This, too, is another FREE Card from our Sale A Bration.. our new Doily Die in the Occasions Mini really adds to this simple but stunning card!!  The Stamp Sentiments is from our amazing Hostess dollars!
Our New Layering Embosslets really aide in creating a stunning and simple look... I tied the lil flowers from the Designer Series paper with three little punched Pretty In Pink flowers and I used the Rhinestone bling for the middle... made is simple but stunning!  I Stamped the sentiment in Basic Grey but then used the Red Riding Hood marker to highlight the bottom half of the words... stunning but so easy!!

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
