Dressed so Sweet

How do YOU Celebrate??
These sweet dresses were celebrating the upcoming wedding of one of my stamping friend's brother.

Theme parties are fun and easier to achieve that one would expect.  Our amazing lines of Papers, Tools, Accessories, Stamps... they make crafting fun while making you look awesome!!
Prepping for the Stampin' Up! 25th Anniversary Convention (over 6,000 stampers attended this event!) I knew I had to recreate this fun item for my 3D swap!
Below are detailed instructions on how to accomplish this fun look, leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
Our Brights Designer Series Color Collection Paper (#130134) provide me with options in every color from this color family.
 
Our stunning Dress Up Framelits (#130101) and the amazing Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#1134349) with the aide of my Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658)... these babies pop out with stellar ease.
This also has NO WASTE!!
I love when I can use up my paper and not waste a scrap.  Cut an 8-1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock into 1/4's.  These 'card front' sized pieces then are scored.
Our Stampin' Trimmer (#126889) has a great cutting and scoring tract. 
Now... depending on the size of your lollipop or treat, you wil be able to change the dimensions.
For a smaller treat/pop core it on one side, scoring across the 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece at the 2-1/4 mark.  I then flip it around and do the other side at the same dimension.

Larger treat/pop?  Score it at 2-1/8" then flip it around and do the same to the other side.

CUT IT (on the same board) at 2-1/8" and you now have TWO, cut, scored and ready to go. 
Decide on the treat size and go for it!
 
A little secret... shhhh...
~ Adding the Pop at the end is easiest
~ Punching the sides as they meet up, but I also added our Glue Dots (#103683) before tying it together.
~ Baker's Twine in Whisper White (#124262) for a neutral, clean and crisp look.
~ A Pretty Bow ties this all up.
She is dolled up and ready for some fun!
Double Sided Designer Series Paper, wonderful patterns, our adhesive backed Pearl Basic Jewels and Rhinestone Basic Jewels provide a variety of accents that really accent the fine lines of this gift.

I love that, life fashion, a great way to dress up any outfit/look is with accessories, and she's all dolled up for the party!  (Like any outfit, dressing up an event, is all about how you style it!)
From Wedding Bells, to a Birthday Party, so much can be celebrated with this cute, sweet dress!

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
