Patterned Pool Party

I have dyslexia.  My brother, one of my sisters, quite a few of my cousins, my grandfather (we suspect) all have dyslexia.  It's a learning disability, one that I've been blessed to have coping mechanisms learned and am planning to some day be an author. 
 
When my daughter had struggles in school this past year, I knew right away what it was.  I have faith that she, too, will overcome this struggle.  Her school, teacher, tutor in addition to our help will have her succeed!
 
This card embodies my desire for her..
I hope it brightens YOUR day and
encourages YOU to Aim High!!
This Sneak Peak card is with all new Stampin' Up! Products from our upcoming catalog. 
 
With Island Indigo, a former In-Color, now part of our Regals Color Collection, card stock (#122923) base this card is rich and elegant. 
 
Add our New Pool Party, another former In-Color and new member of our Subtles Collection, here the Core'dination Cardstock (Subtles Core'dination card stock collection #129954)  and our Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series paper (#130141).... this card comes to LIFE!
Running this 4" x 4" Pool Party Core'dination card stock through the Big Shot (#113439) and the New Modern Mosaic (#129984) embossing folder.
Rubbing the top of this patterned paper in a circular manner with our new Stampin' Sanding System (#129367).  This block is easy on the hand and has replacement sanding sheets - very low cost ($1.95 for refills!! #129368).  When you rough up the Core-dination card stocks the inner 'core' is revealed.  A monochromatic lighter version of the exterior color!
 
Our Dust Buddy (#129366) wipe your project and surface clean of any shredded papers!
The NEW Mosaic punch (#131267) coordinates PERFECTLY with the NEW Mosaic Madness stamp set (#130246).  It ties into the patterned Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper, too!  Stamping the Mosaic Madness stamps with Island Indigo ink (#126986) on Whisper White card stock (#100730) then punching them out - layering them over the textured pattern allows for a sharp look.
Stamping this Feel Goods (#131916) stamp sentiment with Island Indigo on this pretty paper then rubbing the stamped piece into the ink pad adds as small layer that sets it apart in a subtle way.
Sweeten this card with these luster and elegance with our adhesive backed Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247).  The sheet comes with 150 pearls in 3 sizes for only $4.95 - WOW!  The varying sizes allows for perfect accentuation with perfect coordination!!

My big baby girl can and will overcome this challenge.. being stronger for it!  (My cousins overcame it and one is even a published author!!)
 
I hope that when life hands you some lemons you make it better with a sweet lemonade (or frozen lemonade pop or even a margarita, lol).
 
How do YOU Cheer others on??
A card is sure to brighten someone's day while living on to continue to do so (my shelves and refrigerator  has quite a few!).
 
I hope this Sneak Peak cheers your day!!

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
