Hung up on my accountant

I am blessed (and often aggravated) by being married to a CPA.... my beloved husband is all accountant, Italian and an accountant.  Now you may be giggling at my predicament.  I'm German and Scottish and a crafter... it's a match that adds to 5 beautiful girls, one strapping boy, one dog, one tortoise and a bearded dragon, 10 koi fish and a ton of crazy fun.

For this card that adds up to share some love you will need:
Summer Starfuit card stock (#126839)
Soho Subway Designer Series Paper (#130140)
Early Espresso ink (#126974)
Crisp Cantaloupe Stampin' Write Marker (#126856)
Hung Up Cute Clips (#129389)
Crazy, Mixed-Up Love stamp set (#131071)
Stampin' Trimmer (#126889)
Cut at 5-1/2" the Summer Starfruit card stock.  Then using the Stampin' Trimmer, just turn the paper and Score at 2-1/8" on each side.
 
Adhere the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper with the SNAIL Adhesive to the bottom panel.  The numbers and graph paper are ideal for the accountant who this card is made for.
With the Hung Up Cute Clips show what you are trying to say... this cute 'word bubble'.

Stamping this Crazy, Mixed Up Love 'hung up on you' sentiment in Early Espresso ink is an ideal way to tie it all together and yet represent his masculine side.  Accented with the Crisp Cantaloupe Stampin' Write Marker this cute heart says it all.

Layered over the back side of this graph paper, the graphic and masculine image will be ideal for my man.
Little Accents like this Hung Up Cute Clips hanger is a fun way to add whimsy.
This Tri-Fold card delivers a bigger punch and WOWs while only being a different way to fold.
This quick card is ideal as I had to complete it as he was working in the yard - lol... being sneaky is hard in a house filled with nosey people.
Tri-fold cards allow you to have a unique delivery and more room to write.  I do like standing above the crowd, my hubby thinks I do... (awwww).
So I'm far from perfect (shhh - don't tell my kids!!) but this is a pretty awesome family and thanks to the Lord God for bringing us together, my husband made it all possible.
 
I find that I don't say how much I appreciate those around me as often as I should... my poor hubby can often get the last bits of me.  What a good man to put up with that... lol.

 Show that you care!  Deliver a quick card (because sometimes that is all you have to create it) that is sure to WOW!  Personalize it with our amazing papers and cute accessories... hopefully they will know how much you care!
 
Thanks for coming by, I try to post daily.  Bring your friends and family along for the fun!  Share and Pin me and support my love of crafting and this wacky and fun family of mine.
 
Being married to an Italian CPA is a fun balance to this Scottish/German crafter.  The math is far from simple, sometimes it's like Algebra to me (and as a dyslexic that is really wacky).  The equation sums up to a home full of loud love, 6 beautiful children, Potatoes and Pasta, and more animals than this man could possibly want.... so I may not say 'Thank You' or 'I love you' as much as I should... but I try to show him just how special he is to us... thanks for sharing this moment.

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
