Teachers help us SOAR!!

Our School has the most amazing teachers!  I'm not biased... there are a long line of teachers that wait to get into our school.... and we have been blessed to serve at school and really get to know these ladies!!
 
This is the Thank You we created with the help of my kids and their classmates!!
Incorporating our ink and this Million-Dollar Moments hostess stamp set (retired - from the Spring Mini!!).  Let me know what you think, leave me a comment and joining in on the fun!
With our Stampin' Write Markers you can color part of the image to stamp only what you want... here I didn't color the umbrella.. so she can represent the teachers who helped us soar and the one heart vs. raining hearts.
I used my old Stampin' Spots - mini stamp pads that we no longer carry - but they were perfect for our little kids fingers and so easy to transport for this rainbow effect.
Inspired by the movie UP! our little fingerprints came together so well! 
Adding words to random strings - words of inspiration and schooling and science to tie into our school, a Science and Technology Magnet School.
Isn't this a fun spin on the Teacher Appreciation gift and so colorful, much like the kids in our classrooms!
I love the little duck and the whimsy she adds.  This may be one of my favorite stamps - I love silhouettes... and her sassy pose, boots... the duck is the icing on this calorie-free cake!  Retired Stamps may become some of your most favorite and become busier than ever!
Printing on this picture was scary - who wants to mess it up?!?!!  I LOVE the Results, don't you??  My daughter's 1st grade teacher had my son and encouraged his love of learning - his 3rd grade teacher really helped it to flourish this year!
That's my Sal, in the red angry-bird shirt and blue Dodgers hat... he's grown up with most of the kids - from Kindergarten to wrapping up 3rd Grade!!  They head into 4th Grade and new discoveries... Thank You Ms. Nazzaro, you have helped us to soar!
YEAH!!  School is OUT!  My Little Genevieve is in the middle, in front of our beloved Mrs. Nedwick - the black shirt and hands folded in front of her... she has become a friend and nourished two of my kids (with more to come through her class in the near future).  We had a fun year with many ups and downs, growths and new adventures!  A classroom full of colorful kids and much laughter. 
 
When you are blessed to have teachers that support you, your parenting, your children and give them a joy of learning... you are blessed beyond measure!
We have been year after year... thank those real hero's... Teachers!  (You Help Us SOAR!!)
Iiiii still remember some amazing teachers in my education/life - they left a huge impression on my life... let me know who left an impression on yours!

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
