Lovely Dress from Scraps

Incentives in my home can range from a sweet treat to crafting time with Momma!  Even my son enjoys crafting (Shrink A Dinks, etc).  Thissss is a card my 5 year old created this evening as a reward for her taking a nap and doing a great job with the dishes!
(andddd this was from scraps.. by HER design - WOW!)
In preparation for my upcoming class.. this scrap wasn't what I'd envisioned... my daughter took our Big Shot (#113439) and Dress Up Framelits (#130101) to punch out this dress from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (#130132) in our NEW Smoky Slate color!!
She wanted to lay this over a Real Red (#102482) card stock that we mimicked the pattern on the Smoky Slate Designer Series Paper with our Fancy Fan embossing folder (#127751).
Heat Embossing Silver (#109131) embossing powder with our quiet Heat Tool (#129053) this New and Beautiful Lovely Romance stamp set (#130264) really accented the richness to this stamp set.  Isn't that flower and sentiment just lovely??
 Accenting this card with Pops of RED jewels.. my Carina loved taking the Red Sharpie to our adhesive backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels collection.. the connecting jewels make an ideal belt and one dash in the flower ties it all together!  (It's FUN and Easy for a 5 year old - to an 85 year old to do!!) 
Here is my little Carina... she had such fun pulling this together!  Iiii enjoyed our time together (with so many little ones running about - capturing random one-on-one time is a rare and precious jewel to cherish). 
 
Don't toss out your scraps when an idea doesn't pull together.. consider what else you can do with it!
I doooo love the project I did come create for my class... Click HERE to see my Fun Classes and to RSVP!!  Live Out of Myyyy Area??  Look back, soon, as I will be offering a Special Class for 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
