Birthday and Crafting Celebrations!!

I love so much about what I do... crafting soothes my soul and gives me some beautiful results from my playing, connecting with others when you send the card and bless them and then there are those ladies who I stamp with... they, they bless me beyond measure!  So when one of my classes had a wonderful celebration, it was beyond a blessing to be a part of celebrating a birthday!  See how awesome this surprise is and see why my stamping friends bless me so!
It is almost too pretty to eat!  When Pat brought in and surprised Helyn with a birthday cake we were in awe, but to have it be a stunning, hand made cake like this.. it brought tears to our eyes!
Pat likes to keep you on your toes, but she has a massive heart!  To joke with us all, to create a cake like this for the class - in the midst of her working full-time... there are no words for what a blessing this was.
Helyn was blown away!  She had a tear-filled moment then bounced back to enjoy the blessing.
The ladies and I were looking forward to fun card making and crafting.. this was the 'icing on the cake' and ohhhh the icing and home made lime flavored cake was divine!
Make a wish!!
My wish is that we are all blessed with wonderful moments like this in our lives.  I like to believe that these moments are why God bring us together.
Pat is awesome!  She even brought us all 'party favors' - no joke - she delivered us some awesome pens and cheer with this cool cake and warm loving!
So if you were to ask me 'Why do you love being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator?' - I'm blessed with many moments like this.  Moments where crafters join to laugh, love and even pray together and hold each other up.  The ladies that I'm blessed to craft with me are the highlights to my days - they bless me so with their company and friendship.  I hope that you enjoy our sweet slice of cake and consider joining in the fun!  We have a blast in our Stampin' Classes and on my Gettin' Crafty Stampin' Team - come join us!  Thanks ladies - you are an answer to my prayers!

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
