This Easter we had a two day party - Easter Saturday we joined the Italian side of our family as we celebrated Christ's resurrection and visited with our Italian family from Australia.  Here my husband and kids were able to visit and connect with their Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.. in our busy life - these opportunities are too rare to come by.
Our Everyday Adventrue Accessory Pack add a quick and cool element to this page.  Here the Arrow paper clip on the Project Life card allows me to journal a quick note about the times and people we are able to connect with.  The LOVE This Day sentiment really says it all, doesn't it??
 
Layer this card over a piece of 4"x6" Bermuda Bay card stock and have a perfectly color coordinated look for a stylish page.
Sometimes you don't want to journal much.  Here cutting one of the Everyday Adventure Journaling Cards allows me to jot down a few sentences while the Essential Hardware has this fun 'And/&' to highlight that in our Italian family it is all about 'Faith, Family & Food'!  Adding this cut piece back into my Project Life box will allow me to use it in the future.  Layer the picture and journaling over a 4" x 6" piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock for a fun pop of color. 
The NEXT Generation.. I'm blessed to watch our kids grow up with their cousins.  Fun family gatherings allow them to forge bonds and celebrate their roots. Here our daughter plays with a cork from the family's brand of Captivus and beats on a bunny shaped piñata - fun memories that make days like this worth celebrating and cherishing.
The fun color coordinated journaling cards allow me to have a colorful page with style.  Easter is all about color and new life - these cards sure do capture that.
Adding fun arrows and accents is easy!!  The new Project Life Point & Click stamp set and color coordinated inks (like our Melon Mambo ink pad).  It is easy and fun while looking good!  Little accents add to this page while not taking away from it.

Giving the gift of family and documenting these memories for our kids is a great way to leave them connected to their roots and knowing where they come from.   I love how the Project Life system allows me to document and celebrate our life without taking away from actually living it.  With 6 kids and a busy schedule - this is essential to my life, how about yours??

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
