Daisy Girl Scouts

My Pride, My Joy, My Daughter and
My Girl Scout Daisy Troop.
I may not be a big 'joiner' and girly girl cheering kind of gal.  When I took on a troop, two years ago, I was amazed how these girls became such a point of pride, joy and love...
With a Pretty In Pink card stock base, our All Dressed Up Framelits Dies (Spring Mini), Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Marina Mist and Chocolate Chip card stocks... these dresses now resemble our school's uniforms (tan bottoms, white polo's) and their pretty vests!

My Daughter said it was cute but missing the large rainbow daisy.  Whipping out our Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and the little flower punched out of Whisper White card stock.  Our Stampin' Write Markers color in the petals that they earned.

EVERY Girl Scout, from new to older, can recite this saying from memory.  I like what it says.  Here framing it up in our Labels Collection Framelits and Big Shot creates the perfect layered look, easily!


The More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper (Spring Mini) in this lacy, doily, blue patterned paper is a perfect fit for this card.
Sniff, Sniff...
I'm sad to say, this will be my last year as a leader.  I created cards for each of the girls and wrote a personal note for them.  As I wrap up this year, two moms will be taking over next years as they bridge to Brownies.  I LOVE that I was able to be a part of their lives for the past two years. 
Breaking down this pretty Daisy Girl Scout card for you... Here using ALL three pieces of the Dressed Up framelits, a collection of bright Stampin' Write Markers and a little bit of work... this comes to life.
Cutting All three pieces and pulling them together is easy, if not for the many pieces - lol - for our 9 girls.
The effort?!  Well worth it, they are an amazing bunch of girls and parents.
Girl Scouts celebrated their 100 year Anniversary this past year.  100 years of impacting, encouraging and strengthening girls all while selling some amazing cookies (lol).
 
My troop had 12 girls at one point and I'm honored to have been a part of these girls lives.
What fun it's been, an adventure I will never forget.
(Luckily I'll get to see these girls on campus!)

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
