50 Letters of Love Birthday Memory Celebrating Gift

Oh the joys of celebrating life, from the life you live to those who gave you life!  My dear friend, Michelle, joined me to create a wonderful book for her Aunt and another for her Mom.  So this sweet girl went about to gather 50 letters of love and friendship in honor of her beloved Mother's 50th Birthday.  She gathered them and other memories in her Epic Day This and That book.. delivering a wonderful gift that celebrated and documented some wonderful memories in the life of an amazing mom.

Michelle went above and beyond, this sweet and hard working girl (she works multiple jobs while donating her time to lead a young girls soccer team and preparing for college to start).  She snuck in time to create stunning pages of memories, adding in letters that family and friends over the past 50 years of her mother's life contributed to her surprise gift/party.
It doesn't take a million words to show your volume of love.  These This and That journals make it easy to have FUN while celebrating those special moments or people (or both) in your life.
Here Michelle added letters from various family and friends that showed Claudia how much she is loved... what a wonderful and deep gift this is.
 
See the value and awesome-ness of Celebrating and Documenting Life with my Memory Celebrating Mondays posts... life is precious and often too short - celebrate the big and small moments.
Here Michelle and her Momma, Claudia, are celebrated as one mother blesses a young lady, her hopes and her dreams...
 
With coordinating Washi Tapes, Stickers and Envelopes - she added many areas of memories that her mother could reflect on for years to come.

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
