Quilted Inspiration

I'm blessed with some AMAZING Stampin' Friends, Downline, Upline and Sister-line!  My sweet friend and downline Candace moved back to be near her mother and family in Arizona... but with the wonders of the Internet and Facebook as well as texting... we can keep in touch! 
The WONDERS of technology!
 
Inspired by an AMAZING work on a STUNNING Quilt that Candace made and posted on Facebook - I just KNEW the moment that I saw it - I wanted to create a card like it!  The LNSChallenge this week is to use our Sale~A~Bration products - all of which are FREEEEEEE 
(Yes - Free and Unlimited!!) 
HERE is my nod to Candace's creation and our challenge! What do YOU think?!?!

The Luxurious paper collection - FREE - in our Sale~A~Bration mini catalog 'Sycamore Street' Designer Series Paper is a SURE Must-Have! Here is One of the sheets from that kit run through the  New Floral Frames Framelits creating these perfect layers!  Simply flipping one side to another - allows for these different patterns to combine for a fun and trendy look!


You can see the stunning quilt my friend created here... WOW with me!  I wanted to send her a card to let her know that I'm thinking of her!  HERE using the Summer Starfruit card stock and the Vintage Verses greeting stamp set - FREE in the Sale~A~Bration mini along with the Curly Label punch I created this color coordinated and matching sentiment. 
 
Spice it up with the BLING of our matching Summer Starfruit Dahlia's, Brights Button Collection and Pearls Basic Jewel collection.... it adds just a little something, doesn't it?!?!
 
The brilliance of the color matching accessories makes it easier than ever to look amazing!
I may not sew quilts... yet (lol) but I am glad to find inspiration in many areas and friendships!

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
