Violet, a sweet baby girl

My dear friend gave birth to a stunning baby girl, Violet, just recently.  I couldn't resist creating them one of my award winning meals, this hand-stamped and embossed door hanger and mini banner and celebrating with them!  (Really it was a great excuse to hold and snuggle that new baby girl - getting my baby fix on!!)  So see the fun creations we had in store for this new baby girl.. maybe it will give you a baby fix, too!

RECEIVE YOUR OWN COPY of the New Idea Book and Catalog when You EMAIL ME your name, number and the best time to call, I will send it with a hand-stamped gift!!
 
This Afternoon Tea Designer Series paper just retired (sniff, sniff).  I LOVE the vintage lace, mixed patterns, cool design and feminine colors.  With a name like 'Violet' it's ideal!!
 
Using Coaster Board is sturdier than Cardstock and perfect for die-cutting.  Using the Circles Framelits to create a space for the door knob gives me options on sized circles (I love options!!).
 
Using the Fast Fuse Adhesive for an ultra strong adhesive that will hold on the embellishments for a long time!  The Lace Trim and Paper Doilies are sure to stay on look lovely.
 
With ultra feminine accents like the Crochet Lace Trim and Paper Doilies, this pretty paper and door hanger is taken to another level!  Using the broad trip on the Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to paint this paper on the Coaster Board (like wallpaper) for a clear drying strong adhesive.
 
Use the Honeycomb Embossing folder and the Very Vanilla card stock for a texture element that ties into the patterned paper.  The Little Letters Thinlits on the Magnetic Platform for these delicate letters that spell out her sweet name and the 'shh'.  These thin letters adhere on by rolling the Glue Dots.
Don't Toss Out that cut Letter, instead make a coordinating Banner!  Using the Banner Framelits you have options for the size of your banner.  A small one for this small bundle of love, Using the opposite side of the Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper for a coordinated and sweet look.  Accented with this Tea Charm (retired) for a sweet and unique look.
Adhere the pretty pattern behind the punched out letters for a pretty polka dot look.
 
Thread through the Baker's Twine for a delicate (but strong) banner.
It's sweet, small, feminine and pretty - just like it's namesake.  I love the little accents and how she can enjoy this for a lifetime - it's just that classic.

Baby fix, sigh... I love baby time!  Sadly, my husband won't let me have anymore babies (or pets) so snuggling other babies is just the thing.  Give a personalized, feminine gift that will greet them with love with this pretty Door Hanger and Banner.  I'm not sure it will work on her brothers, lol, but the wish is for sweet dreams.  Do not miss out on this upcoming Retired BOGO Sale and grab wonderful papers, tools, stamps and more!   A hand-stamped, embossed gift is the way to go for something full of love, sure to last for years.

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
