Eastern Cabana Goes International

My Recent Celebrando Creatividad Class was a BLAST!  This Bright and Bold Card is uber trendy.. while being Multi-Cultural!
With a Beautifully Baroque embossing folder... so much inspiration came to me... tying it in with our new Eastern Elegance (#130131) Designer Series Paper is natural... combining two beauties comes natural to me (I have many beauties here at home - have you seen my kids - lol?!?!).
The new Coastal Cabana card stock (#131297) makes an ideal bright In-Color statement!  Tying in the new and stunning Ruffle Stretch Trim ribbon in Coastal Cabana (#130024).  It wraps around the Word Window (#119857) punched Feliz Compleanos stamped (Espanol for Happy Birthday) Teeny Tiny Wishes (available in English, Spanish and French #127802) gives me over 70 options of what I will say (with 24 greetings in three languages - one can send love world wide!!).
My Big Shot (#113439) and the Labels Collection Framelits (#125598) gives me many size options and the design mimics the pattern of the beautiful baroque impressions and paper!
Wrapping this Ruffled Ribbon was super easy and makes a very cool accent!!  Whether stamping in English or Spanish.... bling is universal!!  Our adhesive backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels collection (119246) has 150 varying sizes of Sparkle to easily add to any project!
Emboss??  Deboss??  With two sides to the embossing folders and paper... you can chose which look is what you want!  Here the Debossed (on the left) and the Embossed (on the right) give thin, fine or puffy, thicker lines to this baroque design.
Side by Side... subtle differences are fun to note.  Whether you create a wrapped ruffle or just a ruffle skirt... you can celebrate so much and in more than one language!!
 
Do you know someone who speaks another language??  Who'd appreciate a card in their native language (or even their adopted language??)...  SHARE This and the Love of Crafting and Stamping with those who speak other languages!  I grew up as the minority.. surrounded by the Latin culture.. they are some of the most creative and colorful people!!

From Card Making, Gift Creating and Giving to Decorations... Crafting is for EVERYONE!

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
