Grow and Reach for the Sky!

Who knew you could have FUN Reaching for the Sky... using Stampin' Up!'s products to stay inside and not use a stamp?!?!!
 
Thanking our PreSchool teachers... it was fun and easy with our awesome Stampin' Up! paper, stamp pads and Aqua Painter!

Teachers give us Roots, to help us Grow... so we can Reach for the SKY!!!!  HERE is our Class Gift to our two amazing Preschool teachers, Mrs. Curtis and Mrs. Willis at our beloved Christian Preschool of Thousand Oaks (we have been on this campus for the past 6 years - we skip a year and will be back the following!!).
Our Whisper White card stock (#100730) is the perfect, top-quality base for this finger-fun project!
 
Our cute kids are the perfect 'leaves' for our tree... their little fingers and our Lucky Limeade ink (retired) stamp pad make for a kid-friendly project.
After the 'leaves' are in place, take the Early Espresso ink (#126974) and our Aqua Painter (#103954) make for a wonderful 'Tree' to Give Roots and Raise those 'Leaves' to the Sky!
Adding a heart knot represents the amazing love our teachers pour into our kids!
 
The Aqua Painter keeps the water in the actual tip and allows for this graceful look - I'm not an artist in the sense that I paint... but this sure made me feel like it!
Printing a Thank You note for the teachers on our Whisper White card stock and mat it on the Early Espresso card stock (#119686).
 
Frame these little finger leaves of love...
what a perfect Teacher's Gift!

Aren't those finger prints just darling?!?!
Two Teachers, each will receive an
original work of art!
This seems far from 'enough' for the work and love our teachers pour into our kids... Mrs. Curtis has been our teacher for my son... she's actually held Carina when Carina was a Newborn! 
Now she has prepared her for
life and elementary school!!
Here is my (now) Kindergartner!  She has gone from infant to kindergartner on this campus and with the love and aide of the amazing teachers on this campus... thank you Christian Preschool and it's amazing staff!!
Thank You, Mrs. Willis... your love, excitement for life and God, and hugs kept this little angel excited to come to school!!
Thank You Mrs. Curtis... You held this baby girl when she was a baby to now, sending her off to elementary school!!  Thank YOU for everything.. our many kids to come through, seeing you at football games to hugs when we came to and fro on campus... you are a jewel in this cave we call life!!
 
Thank You is FUN to say when you make it into Art... Art that will capture those little fingers in this moment in life - they will grow and never been the same.... what a blessing it is to say Thank You!!

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
