Perpetual Birthday Calendar Gift

Have you read the book The 5 Love Languages?  It's a favorite book on the 5 love languages we all have and their importance in our life... I'm the one people call to create a rockin' gift for their loved ones, primarily because one of myyyyy top love languages is Gift Giving.  So when Carol, a friend and fellow stamper, gave Meeeeeee this small but massive impactful gift I was touched deeply, it made my heart swell.  So enjoy with me this amazing gift that brought tears to my eyes... thanks Carol - love ya!!
Carol created this pretty Perpetual Birthday Calendar with:
Designer Series Paper
Decorative Label Punch
My Digital Studio (130910 Free Trial 30 Days)
 
**  SHOP 24/7 with me while Earning BONUS Frequent Buyer Points!!   If you enjoy this project 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!!
 
BOOK Your OWN Private Class that will show you and your guests (family and friends) the fun of crafting!!  Here you can log and track who and when to Celebrate... Let's find time to play while  YOU will earn ALL of the Hostess Benefits on ALL of the Purchases - ideal to load up on My Digital Studio, Paper Crafting and Rubber Stamping supplies and downloads.
This sweet little book is perfect!  Simply write the birthdays/anniversaries on each month - this is a great way to reference for each new year!
 
Carol went through and created a special area for each month (how brilliant is this??).  With adorable accents framed on our Designer Series Paper.  So create a calendar like this (or project) on the paper that you simply adore and can't pass up.  Then re-use over and over - even after it is retired!! 
 
What a wonderful gift!!  Everyone could use a way to remember reasons and people to celebrate.  I know that with my busy life, I can forget to send cards (sad for someone who makes them but I blame my 6 kids and hubby - lol).  This is a great way to help me get back on track!!  (Life is hard, sending a hand-crafted card or gift is a great way to send a hug in the mail!!)
YOU, too, can create great works of art using My Digital Studio!!  Try it For FREE for 30 Days!!  It will NOT automatically charge you afterwards either... so try it risk free and then if you love it, like I do - and Carol does, download it for only $19.95 (grab the exclusive Software Bundle and Save - that Booster Pack is only $39.95!!). 
So we are SLAMMED from April - June for birthdays in our family.  It starts the beginning of April with my Sister and Uncle to Myyyy Birthday April 21st... with my Aunt Dee, then two daughters, to May with a nephew, another of our daughters and my husband with a few cousins (it's funny that two of the guys on my side of the family have the same birthday as my husband).  We then have my brother and another daughter in June.. whew!!  (The blessings of a big family - many reasons to celebrate!!)
With a great way to centrally locate all of our special dates, this is a great way, with a big family like ours, to actually stay on-top of these special dates.
When the holidays arrive from (Yay) Going Back to School (a holiday in our home - lol) to Fall - I get wrapped up in the kids, activities and decorating our home... this will surely help me to stay on-top of the birthdays.  Too Cute!  Her pages are so adorable!!  I LOVE this and that means I will actually USE it... lol.
 
So YOU, too, can create a stunning gift that will live on.  Using our My Digital Studio (click here to see my many My Digital Studio - aka MDS - projects) to create amazing Holiday Letters, Custom Birthday Invitations, Thank You's Decorations 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
