The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown inspired hand-stamped card

Oh I love, love, looooove the new Confetti Star Boarder Punch.  It pops out these adorable stars that perfectly fit the night sky (as well as other fun uses).  The secret is to STAND when punching.  It gives you leverage and since the punch is punching a ton of tiny stars, it's doing a bunch of work - help it out and avoid getting tired - stand (I count it as burning calories - lol - a bonus!)
I don't celebrate Halloween, we celebrate Fall and Harvest.. but this cute image of a ghost is easy to do with the Fall Framelits - not only do the die-cut the pumpkins, there are leaves and this ghost!  Use the Project Life Journaling Pens to create these eyes.
The Holidays Deliver great reasons to celebrate... and movies to watch!!  I love whipping out my Charlie Brown collection for my children and I to enjoy each year!  This hand-stamped card is a fun nod to my childhood memories; what are your favorite memories?  Leave me a comment and let me know...

 Create a cool looking card that is a nod to your Childhood Memories!  Stamping a cute tie-dyed pumpkin on the envelope gives some excitement and a sneak peak to the card within!  I hope that some day my children will put on some Charlie Brown to enjoy with their kids on the various holidays.  Celebrate the seasons and deliver smiles when you create hand-crafted cards and gifts.  This is a great way to send smiles and leave a legacy of love!

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
