Sparkle Birthday Invites!

I ADORE how EASY My Digital Studio is!!
I have 6 kids and a busy CPA and CFO husband.... so planning a birthday party is usually by the skin of our teeth.. I am inclined to be a procrastinator and that just hinders the process.. lol
(especially during my hubby's busiest season at work and w/ taxes in our own company!).

But, with My Digital Studio (MDS) it's easier than ever to create a Birthday Invitation (and thank yous, decorations, etc) with a few swipes of my fingers and then I can order it for 1 hour pick up at a local photo processing center. 

My Genevieve is turning 7!  WOW!!  This is actually ON her Birthday and we've always combo'd her and her brother's birthdays (they are two years and two weeks apart) but last year we had over 50 kids and several adults at a pizza tour and party... it was a TON to tackle.  This year my frilly, sassy and girly girl wanted to do a girly party (not that I can blame her). 
 
With the Release of Stampin' Up!'s Glimmer Paper on MDS (can you imagine how EXCITED I am?!?! lol) I created this blinged out card!  Being that she has to select only a few friends, I can email their moms as well as we printed this at my local pharmacy (I can pick it up on my way to her school - how COOL!) to hand out with the follow up email (in case any girl loses the invite).

Bling and Stamps - Glimmer and Designer Series Paper, the Rhinestones, adding layers and text... it's a mom's dream!  I'll coordinate the party decorations and thank you's with the ease of MDS and the fact that it matches our current papers!

What would YOU Create with My Digital Studio?!?!  I can easily take all of our photos and scrapbook them after the party... how great is that?!?!
Thank you for coming by, taking a look and feel free to share and leave a comment, it is always appreciated!


 
OK LOOOOOOOK!  How CUTE are these?!?!  They came out so cute and QUICK!  I was able to pick them up and get to our school (on time - five minutes early even!) and my daughter was excited to hand them out to her friends!  (Her lil BFF's dad was there and I handed him her invite first - lol... we'd hate to not have the one girl she wants the most-est... lol.)

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
