Memory Documenting at the lake

OK so on this recent vacation, I couldn't resist crafting on the lake!  My Gettin' Crafty Stampin' business pays for my family's vacations... and we are often at Big Bear Lake.  Crafting with this amazing view is simply stunning!!  I couldn't resist catching up on some of our memories and getting them into books.  The This and That books we offer are great ways for journaling, dream documenting (taking photos of your homes and desires and putting them down in a book), and Memory Celebrating!!  Join Me, here on the lake, as I journal and document some of our life in this easy and fun This and That book!
Enjoying and Living our life... it's so important to me.  I try hard to give my family memories that will strengthen and unite our family for many generations to come.  Documenting these memories needs to be quick, easy and fun - as a mom of 6 kids, a wife and a business owner... I don't have much time to spare!!

Sigh... yes, this is the view from our deck!  This is worth putting into a This and That Book - I may document what I documented - lol.  Whipping a cup of coffee, sitting on the deck, the cool weather and breeze as the lake laps water just in front of me... sigh.. what a blessed life!  THANK YOU for supporting my business and family.
I enjoyed a morning of crafting with ladies here at our resort (I even taught a card making class today).  Coming back, continuing to craft but with a focus on our family and life... it was easy and so refreshing.
Traveling with the This and That books, coordinating Washi Tape, Designer Stickers... it is easy!  With a car that was packed with family, luggage and fun - I am allotted a little space for my crafting.  This travels well, I even keep a messenger bag with them in it and grab it when I know I will have a long wait at schools, parks, appointments (why do they make appointment times yet make you wait??).
Sitting on our deck, traveling is easy with our books of pictures.  With books that are date, time and location stamped, easy to use as they are perforated... they fit perfectly in my bag!  I love my Groovebook App - see (below) how to get YOUR Book for FREE!
 
Printing my pictures off my Iphone (my ever present camera these days) is easier than ever!  The Groovebook App sends me these collections that are perforated and time/location stamped so that I can actually use them and document them when I have the time.  See MORE and My Gift to YOU when you CLICK HERE!!
I love this scene where I my kiddos are playing in the sand.  They are growing so fast, these times are fleeting.  With a home where I play referee, hearing them fight daily.. I love scenes where they are cooperating, playing together (in nature) and building up our family.  These are precious memories!
 
Here using the Essential Hardware to highlight their work-play... it's a fun accent to my page.  The metallic gold Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape makes for a pretty accent that coordinates with this golden beach.
The fun Retro Fresh Designer Stickers coordinate with the books for easy and stylish crafting.  They give areas for journaling, fun stickers that help hold the pictures to the page and all fit into the sleeves in the book.
Adding this sweet Winnie the Pooh quote is a fun way to celebrate the togetherness of the family.
It is AMAZING what you can do with the This and That books!!  Their pages are pretty patterns that coordinate and make for fun crafting.  Adding stamps, pictures and more - creating a personalized book is a wonderful way to celebrate our life.
 
See this wonderful way to encourage your children's creativity and let them document and celebrate their memories and life!!  RSVP ASAP for YOUR Child's collection of their own This and That book - we will decorate and personalize their books and even add pictures that they bring.  They will take home all of their supplies (used and not) for continued Memory keeping!

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
