Dodgers Inspired Birthday

Celebrate a fun birthday with a toast to the awesome baseball season our Los Angeles Dodgers had this year!  When little Jag turned 2, I just couldn't resist grabbing this mini Dodgers outfit and creating a card that matches!
 
What do you think?!?  Leave me a comment and let me know.  Share this (and me) with your family and friends... Pin, Email, Facebook, Tweet, Google+ this and Follow Me on this avenues (YouTube, Instagram and LinkedIn, too!).
Jag is the first born to a sports loving dad.  When his dad went pro in basketball, I couldn't resist a nod to Jag's 1st birthday with a Basketball card
 
This year, we have all been vying tickets to and celebrating the Dodger's winning game streak this year!  This ensemble inspired a fun card that plays on the LA Dodgers logo to Celebrate Jag!
Dodger Blue was attained using our Pacific Point card stock (#111350).
Create a fun baseball with the help of our Big Shot Die Cutting Machine* and our Circles Collection Framelits* (#130911).  The Big Shot Magnetic Platform* holds the framelits right where you want it for precision placement and cutting!
 
Using the Big Shot and creating 3D stitching (much like a baseball has) using our Needlepoint Border embossing folder (#129383) to create this fun textured accent.  Highlighting the raised stitches with our Real Red Stampin' Write Marker (#100052) - easy peasy!
My little helper, lol. 

Using the Whisper White card stock here, as well, (#100730) and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine* I created these fun letters.  Our Typeset Alphabet Bigz* (#127553) die cuts these letters - allowing for easy personalization of any project!
Fun look, Texture, the Baseball raised for dimension - using our Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive (#104430).  The raised texture and fun letter play on the logo... any sports fan would love to receive this card!
OK Cheer with me... we scored Box Seats this past Saturday.. what fun!!  With their famous Dodger Dogs, Garlic fries, my hubby, son and his pal.. we cheered on the home team with zeal!
The stadium was sold out, the roar of the crowd was contagious... it was a hoot, even if they lost - lol...
I'm so glad you joined the game today - ok, so maybe just me and my blog, lol.  I try to post daily and hope to see you back often - bring your friends along to play!  Come Play (in person or virtually) in my classes!!
 
* Join the Fun! 
 
Cheer Jag on with us!  Every Sports loving fan will enjoy a card that gives props to their favorite team and sport!!  Giving a Personalized card and gift is a great way to show you care.  What team and sport would you celebrate?!?!

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
