Golden Thoughts Fly to You

My Heart is often folded inside of the cards I send out.
Creating cards for my dear friends is like sending a bit of me....
So HERE is a Folded Card that has lots of love in it!!
Don't You love when a neat little package has tons of dimension and surprises?? 
THIS Card is SURE to Surprise YOU!! 
Here a 4" x 4" Black Card Stock is centered with a 3"x3" Modern Medley (#126926) piece of Flying Birds Designer Series Paper.
Band this Card... It's not required but by Banding the card (this means wrapping a piece of ribbon or card stock to mimic a belt) you create Control!  Here this striped strip mimics the Label Love stamp set's (#130622) 'Just For You' Sentiment. 
Mixing Patterns is so trendy and shhhh - so easy!  When you have coordinating colors and patterns (like in our Designer Series Paper Collections) you can (you can look good and so easily)!
Creating a Folded Card is a great way to Spin on any Greeting!!  HERE a FUN and Cool Folded Card is just a couple of minutes away!
 
I Will Post a Video (Tomorrow) on how to create this card... until then, it's a 4" x 12" card scored with our Stampin' Trimmer (#126889) at the 4" and 8" points.  Score the outer lines at a matching diagonal.  (See the Video).  This light weight cutter has scoring and cutting blades in one track - so it's easy to create great projects and quickly!!
 
Adding a 3"x3" square of Very Vanilla card stock (#101650) and this card now has a compact but blank surface to write on!
OK Ohhhhh with me...
When we were recently told that GOLD Was the "IN" metal.. I giggled - I'm a Gold Girl but there is soooo much you can do with ALL of the Metals!!
 
In Honor of Bonnie's Suggestion that Gold was all the rage - lol - I used our Black Embossing Powder (#109133) and Heat Tool (#129053) on the new and delicious Gold Foil Sheets (Holiday Catalog #132622). 
WOWZAZ!!  Shimmer and Shine... with the vintage look of the Label Love stamp set (#130622).
When you fold it this tight package comes together for a rich look.  It's NOT as complicated as it looks (like most people, eh?) and with just a little love, you can get love back in return!
 
I LOVE that this folded card is small but makes a big impact.  Easy, Trendy, Cool... it opens up to fly right into your heart.

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
