Pretty Butterflies

Do you ever want to feel like a princess?
I watch the Disney Princess and their ability to call wildlife to their side as their dear friends....
I may NOT be a Disney Princess....
My girls - all 5 - think they are Princesses,
from the oldest who's almost 25 to
my baby girl who's 22 months...
Now, to capture those butterflies and
have them land upon them...
Last week I'd created this jar with a pierced lid, inspired by a Pin from Pinterest... it's a fun way to 'clean up' the scent of one's less than clean smelling rooms... lol
 
Taking it UP a notch....
with the use of the Jumbo Sticky Rounds (Spring Mini)
Blossom Punch (Idea Book & Catalog),
Vellum Card stock and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits
(Idea Book & Catalog)
The use of a Glass Etching solution
(purchased at a local craft store)
the Jumbo Sticky Round was punched with the Blossom shape.  Apply the Solution as indicated by the packaging and then wash off after - my solution said 5 minutes but I did leave it on 10 - I wanted a darker more 'solid' image.
The punched and embossed image, thanks to the
Big Shot and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit
created a similar look and feel of the etched glass.
Applying them with the use of a Hot Glue Gun -
they stay 3D and highlight the natural look of the flower.

It's like a bunch of pretty butterflies came to visit our water closet!!  The Butterfly Pierced on the lid continue the feel of this pretty bottle.
We released live butterflies at our wedding...
it's the closest I've ever come to being a Disney Princess!

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
