Man Birthday in a Jar!

I grew up loving the old pictures and movies that represented the Roaring 20's... Men in Pin-Striped Suits, well tailored, Women in Flapper dresses... (so much so that I found a flapper style dress at a thrift store and wore it exclusively for months when I was a young girl - lol.. every day after school....).
 
This Jar from our recent Joy in a Jar class reminds me of just that - a well groomed and tailored man.
Designing for a Man isn't always easy but this Birthday in a Jar came to life in Orfa's hand!!  What a wonderful job, and I'm sure you'll be bowled over by this masculine birthday in a jar!
 
Our Petite Pairs stamp set (#122497) is the fun sentiment for this jar.  Our Modern Medley (#126926) Designer Series Paper is a wonderful collection of sharp and vintage Basic Black and Very Vanilla.
Open this up for a wonderful birthday surprise!!
A battery operated tea light birthday cake and a Banner Birthday Wish!
EVERYONE should have a birthday cake on their big day... sadly some people don't.  This everlasting, calorie free, burn free bake is sure to brighten the day! (A sweet super hero, maybe?)
Our Silver Glimmer paper (#124005)add sparkle to a special day.  The Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies (#127553) and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and super hero tool (lol) #113439 allow us to spell out any celebration!!
Whisper White Baker's Twine (#124262) wrap up and hold together your wishes!
 
Midnight Muse stitched satin ribbon (#126847) give a sharp, tailored look.  1-3/4" Scallop Circle punch (#119854) and the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch (#118874) create a great birthday centerpiece to this RePurposed jar... open up some love and fun!

Who would you gift this birthday wish, a party in a jar, to??  My hubby isn't a tailored kind of guy but he'd love something like this, who wouldn't??

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
