Circle the Date for this Celebration!

Find a Reason to Celebrate!
Sing a Song!!  Throw a Party, send out some exclusive tickets to the event and make it more festive!  Get the party moving and shaking... and start with this card!
 
Here is a moving card that is sure to be the ticket to celebrate that special someone in your life!
With a Crumb Cake card stock base (#120953) the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper (#126926) for the center Lolly/Rosette and the Mosaic Print.  This elegant combination is classic and lends towards a vintage feel.
 
Using the (NEW and AWESOME) Circle Card Thinlits Die (#133480), Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439) and Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658) this moving, cut and scored card comes to life... hello - how amazing is that?!?!!
Our Simply Scored Scoring Tool allows me to create these sweet Lollies/Rosettes quickly.  I scored this 1" strip at 1/4" increments for an easy folded musical Rosette.

Hot Glue the ends together and then to the front of the circle.  Adding our Antique Brads (#117273) for a vintage, elegant metal accent.  It covers the hole and looks perfect on this project.
So this interactive card is fun for all ages.  Sending it out is sure to bring some 'Wows!' as they can't stop opening and closing this card.
That's the Ticket stamp set (#128075) is a fun set that coordinates with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch (#126883).  Here stamping with Basic Black ink (#126980) and Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966) for a rich and elegant sentiment.  I miss the days of a ticket to enter an event - being a busy mom makes me miss things like movie tickets and such.... lol.
Punching this sweet little heart with the Small Heart Punch (#117193) in Cherry Cobbler card stock (#119685) for the perfect accent to this ticket.  The small, sweet pearl from our adhesive backed Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247 - 150 asst. adhesive backed pearls for only $4.95! WOW).

The Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons and Pearls Hot Glued to the top give a fun way to grasp the card while adding to the luxury of the card.
Taking the Seam Binding Ribbon in Crumb Cake (#122332) and pulling a string from the center creates this ruffled ribbon look.  Adhere to the card with Hot Glue and it will remain in place.  Here it tops the embossed Modern Mosaic pattern (thanks to the Modern Mosaic embossing folder #129984).  Subtle pattern on pattern is a great touch!
Closed it's a lovely card, just the ticket to some musical celebrations!  It's interactive and cool - easily created with just a quick swipe in the Big Shot!  I love when award winning tools make meee look awesome!!  What would YOU Do with a moving card?  Who would you send it to??
 
Seeeeee a Fun and quick Demonstration of how AWESOME and Easy the moving card is!

Celebrate Life, Love, Birthdays, Unions, Births... this card may just be the ticket!!  Modified, easily, to create the perfect feel you are trying to achieve!!  Can't you just hear the music?  Come and Celebrate!!  (Your Invited!)

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
