Card Making Class Fun!!

Go ahead... Schedule Yourself some Fun while Learning something new!  See a snippet of a recent class... Thanks Georgia for snapping these!!
 
I love teaching.. looking back I realize that I am glad that I didn't join the ranks of those unspoken heroes and teach at schools (they work so hard and are undervalued - then again, I ammmm a mom so I feel a little of their pain - lol)...
 
I do get my 'teach' on (lol) with my love of card making and paper crafting, where I impart my knowledge of rubber-stamping and paper crafting while making new friends!!
So having a cold, I'd rested all day to have the energy for my new class at the CRPD!  Fighting a cold... it stinks... but having a little 'me' time is ideal for a pick-me-up!  We created 4 stunning cards that had us giggling as we learned new techniques!  This class is a series and will have four weeks packed with crafting fun and a few laughs..
I found it funny that as I started my class, a friend from my bible-study who'd known me from MOPS joined us!  We were found laughing as we created these fun cards!
Serious fun... lol.. I love how you learn something new about those around you as you craft!  You find those that want their projects 'just so' and others who are more chill... you'd be surprised at where many a person is on this spectrum!
I love sharing little secrets, tools and tips on how to create the best project that you can!  I love, too, how paper crafting mimics fashion...
So here is a snippet of what we created:
Stained Glass technique with this Poinsettia card and our Aqua Painters..
3D Ornament cards..
Luxurious Silver on Silver cards...
Tons of FUN!
Creating always brings me joy.. and doing so with friends is a real blessing!  Here Georgia joined the class after Tap dance - what a feat for a late night class!

Resolve to have fun, learn something new and schedule some 'you' time in!  You deserve it... come and play with me!

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
