Love Mom to the moon and back!

When I hear the term 'Love you to the moon and back' the old TV Show "The Honeymooners" pops into my head - lol.  I love this cute saying and how fun this cute Mother's Day card came out!  Join me as we send our mothers some love this Mother's Day - or any day of the year.  Join Me and the 32 4th graders and teachers who created these cute cards for those special ladies in our life!

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!!
 
OK so I am so very blessed to know these girls!  Having had the pleasure of getting to know the teachers, staff, parents and students of our school.  These sweethearts where in on their recess as they couldn't bypass the fun and excitement of using Simple Machines to apply a vast amount of pressure - resulting in a modified surface (also known as the Embossing using our Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine).  I love that what we take for granted as cool tools are actually doing some cool work!!
With a variety of great kids the options of using the embossing folder of their choice was a blast!  The kids reviewed what they believed their mothers would like  and what they thought cool - it is such fun to see these kids, most of whom I know pretty well, grow into loving, funny and kind young people. (sniff, sniff)
This Petals A Plenty embossing folder reminded me of twinkling stars or exploding fire works.
 
Here stamping the sentiment on this Watercolor Wonder Designer Paper with the Smoky Slate ink and then framing the punched 'moon' with these M's in Smoky Slate card stock from the Typeset Alphabet Bigz allows me to send my mom around the moon - lol.
The Color Coach #130118 pairs the Calypso Coral with the Smoky Slate.  I wouldn't have picked these colors but love that they work so well together while lending towards a feminine look.

No matter the background/embossed look you go for, this card is sure to send your mom's heart soaring!  These 4th graders made me smile as I enjoyed their exploration of our Big Shot, Punches and their 'Simple Machines' uses.  Seeing my passion for crafting, celebrating life and family come to bring these kids (and hopefully their moms) some joy blesses me so very much.  My YOUR Mom be blessed this Mother's Day and all year long!

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
