A Sweet Read!

Deliver a sweet treat with this yummy and quick candy-stick and bookmark.  Inspire reading adventures as you send them on their way with this snack!  These are great for parties, birthdays, gift bag or gift accents, sport teams, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, rewards and more!
Create this sweet-treat with:
1"x8" Cellophane Bags (#124134)
Whisper White Baker's Twine (#124262)
Candy of choice (M&Ms, Skittles, Jelly Beans, Candy Corn, etc.)
If you enjoy this card and want to have some fun crafting with me, CLICK HERE and RSVP ASAP for my Upcoming Classes!!  Most classes are FREE with a qualified purchase!!
The secret to stuffing the Cellophane tube is to pre-open it and using a new Pencil or Chopstick, to push down the first and to keep the candy in place along the way.  I make the first candy 'flat' so that it's a proper base for the candy to lay as I want.
Using a tiny whole punch, I wrapped the top of the candy stuffed cellophane bag with the Whisper White Baker's Twine and tied on this bookmark.  It's a fun way to inspire some reading and a few smiles along the way.

On a PERSONAL NOTE... I'm an avid reader.  I have THOUSANDS of Books on my Kindle, hundreds of actual books on my shelves, boxes of books I just can't let go of... books are a magical place.  Please, inspire adventures, give the gift of reading. It's a lasting gift that will surely be cherished (I ALWAYS write a personal note inside the book when I gift one... it's amazing how I can reflect on the books my grandparents or parents have given me.. especially as they are now in Heaven.)  My many adventures, broad vocabulary and safe escapes come in the form of books and I pray to be an author some day.
 
I would love to encourage you to look at an amazing Author!  My big sister is an award winning youth author!!  She is an amazing sister, wife and mom. With her newest book coming out in July, 2014,  I'd love to share her with you.  Consider her books for yourself or to share.  You can pre-order, 'Skies Like These' Tess Hilmo will wrap you in her magical worlds!  CLICK HERE to see her books available on Amazon!  It makes a great gift for young and old... add a personalized Bookmark and give the gift of adventures!!

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
