Friendship is the Jewels...

Friendships are what carry me....
my friends, they shine and are rare jewels in this dark world...
they light up my life and brighten my day!
 
On National Jewel day, I couldn't resist creating this card..
National Jewel Day
They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but that girl may have fallen for some clever marketing. With a whole world of colorful jewels, who says diamond is king? Certainly not the royal family. Fergie, the Duchess of York, received a ruby engagement ring from Prince Andrew, while Princess Diana donned a sapphire.
(I, too, have a Sapphire engagement ring - lol.)
I've always dreamed of a rainbow tennis bracelet... all varying colors of sapphires... they come in all colors except red - that's a ruby!

Using our Basic Jewels Rhinestones and Permanent Markers in a blue, orange and yellow... I created my own!
This is an easy and fun way to add color and shine to any project!  My kids love coloring these jewels in and it's a fun way to have them participate.
With the Distressed Dots background stamp and Island Indigo ink these dots POP on a Sahara Sand card stock.
The STUNNING and FREE
Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper
(Sale~A~Bration mini)
frames up this Feel Goods stamped greeting.
The FREE Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack has this wonderful collection of satin ribbons and buttons.
Tangerine Tango ink captures this sentiment and brightens the card.  Pool Party sponged on the edges of this Very Vanilla card stock.
The colored jewels, greeting and framed up paper...
any friend should feel the love of this card.
Take a walk with me down Sycamore Street, my friend...
Who will you celebrate?
Friends are the family we pick our selves...
whether for a season or a lifetime...

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
