Spring Cottage, So Worth the Wait

I'm a country girl at heart...
I grew up in two places - but primarily in a farming community.  We had a killer Aggie (agriculture) dept at our school - Goooo Saints!!
 
When I saw this stamp set I knew it'd be mine!  I like builder sets and this window has me excited... sadly it's going to be GONE this week as it's RETIRING*!!
 
See THIS and ALL of our Retiring* items (*)...
CLICK HERE and see the $avings, too!
Here our Pretty In Pink* card stock (#100459) as the base is embossed with our Elegant Bouquet* embossing folder (#115964) and our Big Shot (#113439).  This floral textured background ties in with our Twitterpated* Designer Series Paper (#125406). 
This stamp set really covers all seasons and can open the window to cheer to anyone!
An embossing folder like this, though retiring, is sure to live a long and bright life!
Our Stampin' Write Markers make life easy and FUN!  Here the Pretty In Pink*, Riding Hood Red*, Baja Breeze* are all Retiring* but are full of life!
We used the same markers to color the embossed flowers... it ties into the patterned flowers on the Twitterpated* paper.
Stamping the Spring Window, bird and butterfly on Whisper White card stock (#100730) with Early Espresso ink (#126974) then coloring it in... cutting out our with our Paper Snips (#103579) gives you a real 'open window' feel!
Popping it up with our Stampin' Dimensional adhesive (#104430) for additional dimension.
Colored, embossed flowers adds a fun twist on this card.
Word Play* stamp set (#120308) is a fun and soon to retire stamp set that covers sooo very much!
The Decorative Label punch (#120907) fits a ton while being elegant and classic.
My friends and family back East sooo know what it's like to wait on Spring... it's sooo worth the wait to them - lol. 
A twist on this using this Window... on our Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper (#126917)....
A sweet 3" x 3" with this window..
just like a wood cottage...

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
