National Milk Day

WHO KNEW?!?!  Hallmark - that's who... lol
I LOVE Celebrating life's moments - the births, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and yes, the silly holidays (like National Milk Day!)...
so Celebrate National Milk Day with me and fortify those bones...
they say 'Milk Does a Body Good'!

I LOVE our Spring Mini! 
It's a lovely collection of holidays, lace and accessories - right up my alley! 
 
Grabbing my Bashful Blue cardstock, the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper, the Artisan Embellishments Kit, That's the Ticket stamp set and Ticket Duo Builder Punch, the Mini Milk Carton die and my Big Shot
I created this fun Milk Carton






 
Starting off with the Bashful Blue card stock is similar to the milk in our fridge... it coordinates perfectly with the Tea for Two DSP (Designer Series Paper) I simply ran it thru the Big Shot and the Mini Milk Carton Die.  Wrapping it around the Milk Carton - it's sweet, vintage, elegant and feminine. 
 
Stamping the Admit One and Valentines Day Tickets from That's the Ticket stamp set with Early Espresso ink on the Pretty in Pink cardstock.  I ADORE that our Punches Coordinate so perfectly with the stamps!  Who doesn't want a ticket to something so sweet??
 
 
This sweet treat fits perfectly into this sweet Carton... the sweet embellishments from the Artisan kit and the sweet paper from the Tea for Two DSP... I LOVE it!  The lovely lace ribbon, flower and it's soft blush on the tips...
 
History of today's celebration...

 
When you can't fill a gift with milk... go sweet, go chocolate, go with the kind of gift that a person will want to receive - lol.
Whoppers Malted Milk Balls...  much better than milk, eh?



What Whimsical and Sweet Holidays do YOU Celebrate?  Go Crazy, Celebrate LIFE!!

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
