A picture is worth...

I'm kind of a Pinterest addict.  Never will I be alone or board at any function (or while my kids are watching TV or hubby reality TV - lol).  I can search recipes (even for our many allergies!!), enjoy some funny ecards and grab some fun inspiration for my paper crafting passion!!  From fashion to architecture... a card or project can be inspired no matter where you go!!  With the 2012-14 In Color line of colors, their rich jewel tones, going away - I couldn't resist using them to tie into this pretty picture of a colorful garden in the front of a modern lined home.
 
Create this card, inspired by this pretty picture with:
Whisper White card stock (#100730)
*Rasberry Ripple card stock (#126842)
*Summer Starfruit card stock (#126839)
*Gumball Green card stock (#126840)
*Gumball Green ink (#126861 - grab a reinker if you grab this ink pad, once the color is gone, it's GONE!)
*Delightful Dozen stamp set (#128547w/#122652c)
*Itty Bitty Punch Pack (#118309)
Glue Dots (#103683)
 
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!!
 

I LOVE that this *Delightful Dozen stamp set has this fun Birthday sentiments stamp!!  The lines even mimic the lines of the modern architecture to the house!!
 
Building the image of this flower garden is fun with the Last Chance List of this *Itty Bitty Punch Pack (three cute little punches - one small price!).  Here the flow is so natural and fun - anyone receiving this is sure to be delighted!!
Surrounding this stamped birthday greeting is easy when you stamp it first and then build the flowers around it.
Applying the flowers to this Whisper White card stock is easy and quick with the aide of the Glue Dots!  I also made sure that some of the flowers 'fell off' of the page for a natural flow.  Simply cut those that did away with our Paper Snips (#103579).

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
