50th Wedding Anniversary

Celebrate!
Life, Love, Unions, Births, Graduations, Longevity, Growth, Promotions... oh, the list goes on and on...
One of Myyyyy favorite celebrations is Anniversaries.  I am blessed to come from a lineage of long-love filled-Christ loving marriages.  So celebrating a monumental moment like a 50th Wedding is something I can't wait to jump on!
This 5"x7" Very Vanilla card stock (#101650) base is embossed with Gold Embossing Powder (#109129), Versa Mark watermark pad (#102285) and my Heat Tool (#129053).  This stunning Everything Eleanor stamp set (#124162) is versatile with elements and nature!
When my friend Deliz called and asked for my assistance with a situation, I was curious what she needed.  She described the invitations that she ordered on-line, that they looked amazing with raised gold and elegance "on-line" but when she received them they were flat, dull, little elegance or class... especially for her parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary! 
 
We spent a little time and visited while building a card that she and her sister actually liked!  I love that I had time to do a custom order and help a friend in the process!
Embossing Gold Powder on our Brushed Gold card stock (#102935) is SUCH an elegant and rich look while being super easy to accomplish! 
Layering this 'Gilded edged' Gold Embossed 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punched Very Vanilla piece is an elegance base for the Brushed Gold card stock Numbers punched with my BigZ dies (#127553)and Big Shot (#113439).
Printing the Invitation on the back and embossing the envelopes is a great way to encourage others to join in on the Celebrations!
 
My favorite childhood memories are wrapped around our family reunion for our extended family from across the nation.  I was nine when my grandparents celebrated 50 years of love, overcoming challenges of a lost child, family passing away and growing anew... I STILL Cherish those memories of family, friends & laughter.
(My Grandmother passed away shortly before their 70th wedding anniversary - wow!!) I'm beyond blessed by this lineage!!

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
