I adore a stamp set that I can use all year long - for many celebrations and just-because hand-crafted cards.  This great Holiday Home Photopolymer stamp set and *BUNDLE (*Score - saving 15% for coordinating rubber stamp sets and framelits for my Big Shot!!) ROCKS!!  Here the Halloween is 'clear' (Photopolymer stamps are clear - lol) spooky fun!
TOOL TIP TUESDAY... Sponge up your next project... it's amazing how our Stampin' Sponges can change the look of a project.  Here with the torn edge of a piece of spare cardstock you can create a sky with Basic Grey ink on the Smoky Slate cardstock.  Modify this to create a puffy cloud filled sky or a wavy water (lake/ocean) scene.  The Stampin' Sponge is amazing and easy to use.  I love to cut them into wedges and use them over and over (rinse them to use with a new color!).  They age a project into vintage bliss or soften a scene and even add depth.  Play with these babies and have fun!
The houses have the coolest looks and are easy to decorate.  Here they perfectly pop out using the Homemade Holiday Framelits on my Magnetic Platform and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine!
Going Halloween or Fall?  Chose what color you chose for the falling leaves!  It's spookier with the Basic Grey inked leaves stamp but more Fall when you use the Tangerine Tango inked leaves stamp.  The cutest pumpkins are easy to build using the clear Photopolymer Stamp Set.

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
