Create this pretty necklace with:
*Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (#132994)

Clear block Cleaning Cloth (#121779)

If you enjoy this necklace 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!!
 
* All items listed with an (*) are on the Last Chance list and when they are gone, they are gone.  Grab YOUR Supplies this week as the Retired List and Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals that are going and going FAST!   * May also mean that it is NOT carrying over into the New Idea Book and Catalog - so grab these items (from the Occasions Mini Catalog) ASAP because they will NOT be available after May!

It is simple, really, to create personalized necklaces for gifts or just to match an outfit.
 
Pick the item you wish to highlight (stamp an image and color it, or an image on our Designer Series Paper).  Apply a small amount of Crystal Effects liquid lacquer adhesive to the back of the glass (use flattened marbles, if you are in a pinch). 
 
Squish it down, making sure that the Crystal Effects covers the whole surface (no air bubbles). Let it dry for 10-15 minutes.
 
Cut it out and apply to the base for the pendant.  The Crystal Effects is clear - crystal clear!!  A little goes a long way.  It is a super strong adhesive, too!
 
The Clear Block Cleaning Cloth is small and easy to keep about!  Here it wipes off any dust, dirt, oily finger prints or smeared Crystal Effects (after I wiped with a napkin there were little bits left on the top of this glass).  I like, too, using this to clean my blocks when I stamp... make sure to keep one (or three) in your crafting area.
My little model think's it is a hoot that her momma can make jewelry.  With five daughters and a son, this makes for great personalized gifts, accessories to match outfits and more!!

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
