National Root Beer Float Day

Ohhhh - Here It IS.... a reason to celebrate, to whip out some Root Beer, Vanilla Ice-Cream and create a vintage drink that is sure to sweeten your day!
Happy National Root Beer Float Day!!
Having fun creating this with my 7 year old daughter, it reminds me of my Daddy (as he looks down on us, I'm sure he is smiling).  He introduced me to Root Beer Floats as a child and I STILL Love them (and love any opportunity to share them with my hubby and kids!!).
 
So HAPPY National Root Beer Float Day!!  It is an actual holiday and what a great way to celebrate!
 
So Go For IT... Whip out a Root Beer Float and Create a Card to Celebrate this Holiday!!
Having Cut the Vellum Card Stock (#101856) Score it with our Simply Scored Scoring Tool/Board (#122334) and the Simply Scored Stylus (#125624).  This gives the look of a Frosted mug - much like the ones I grew up with and my dad used for this tasty treat!
Stamping Celebrate Today from the Perfectly Penned (#122892) stamp set for a vintage vibe... the Chocolate Chip ink (#126979) shows so well on this 'frosted mug' while the Chocolate Chip card stock (#102128) resembles a mug full of tasty root beer.
Creating a handle with our Ovals Collection Framelits (#129381), Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439)* and Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658)* create the perfect frosted mug handle!
*CLICK HERE to see HOW to get these or anything else you may desire in the Catalogs for FREE or even 1/2 Off!!
Add that "Ice-Cream" and FROTH it with our Very Vanilla card stock (#101650) and the Scallop Oval Punch (#119856). 
Hot Glue Gun to the RESCUE!!  Glue the Handle to the side and then cover with the one side hot glued down... this allows the frosted mug to curve and remind me of the condensation of the cold mug.
Like a Vintage Soda Pop Shop... this sweet card is vintage in theme and brings back such great memories (with out any of the calories!).
My baby girl created this with me in honor of this Sweet National Root Beer Float Day holiday!

How do YOU Celebrate life?  Make memories for your family?  This is a great excuse to do just that!
 HAPPY NATIONAL ROOT BEER FLOAT DAY!!
I hope that your day bubbles over with FUN!
 
Go for it.... go grab a 2 liter of Root Beer, some delicious French Vanilla Ice Cream and Mix It UP!
 
Create Sweet Memories, Remember Sweet Times (I miss those moments with my Dad, I'm sure he's looking down on me with a frosty mug in his hand.).
 What is your favorite memory?  Any Root-Beer-Floats in them?!?!  Leave me a Comment and let me know!!

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
