You are AMAZING!!

Have you ever sat back and watched as the student became the teacher?
This amazing group of girls, the Menendez family, have really blessed me!  They came to me, one day after church, and with no knowledge of stamping have take the Gettin' Crafty Stampin' bootcamp and now create AMAZING works of art!
 
Here Martha ROCKED this beautiful card... leave us a comment and let us know what you think!
Starting with the Smoky Slate Designer Series Paper from our Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (#130132).  This collection comes with 40 sheets of pretty patterned papers (WOW!).
 
Here she used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool/Board (#122334) to create these sweet Lolly/Rosettes. 
Our adhesive backed Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels really makes it POP!  Layered over the Basic Black inked (#126980) En Francais (#127790) background stamp.  The Black really POPS and is so classic on the new Smoky Slate card stock (#131202).
 
Tie in the Polka Dotted Paper with our Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439) and the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (#117335).  I just love the look of the embossed polka dots on the En Francais stamped background!
One of my new favorite stamp sets is the Lovely Romance set (#130267)!  So elegant, sharp, vintage but trendy and cool... ohhhh, I could use it daily!!
 
Prep and Powder the Black card stock (#126980) with the Embossing Buddy (#103083) to assure a sharp heat emboss.  Stamp this Amazing image with the Versa Mark pad (#102283) and heat set with our Heat Tool (#129053) and Silver embossing powder (#109131).  NOWwwww the Smoky Slate takes on a Silver hew!
 
Punch this sentiment out with our Chalk Talk (#129983) Framelits, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439) and the new Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130685).  Easy Peasy and Oh-So Sharp!!
OK so I didn't let on that this wonderful Martha is only 12!!  She's just amazing!  A sweet girl, the youngest in her family, she is spunky and oh-so fun!
Talented, oh so talented, too!  From her love of baking to her skills in stamping, I couldn't be more proud of this girl and this beautiful card!

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
