New Years Eve



The end of 2014 is here.. WOW - what a year!  I am so very, very blessed to have you come and support my passion for crafting!  THANK YOU!

As each year wraps up and another begins, I start a list of to-do's.  What I am thankful for, what I need to do and work on... sigh.  It can be daunting.  This year I feel like I've finally gotten a goal in mind (the Europe trip that Stampin' Up! is offering if we earn it), friends and family that I am blessed to have in my life, my health and my faith (not in that order). 

Happy New Year's Eve.. tonight we will be toasting the New Year at 9pm (on the West Coast) with my hubby and minions, some Root Beer Floats (for our bubbly) and any Christmas movies we haven't caught up on from our Hallmark dvr-ing - lol.  My goals will be written (one resolution is to be on-top of birthday's and events with cards mailed in a timely manner - sigh), prayers said and hard work planned.  I pray that you and yours are surrounded with love and laughter.  Thanks for supporting my crafting passion, supporting my family with my crafting business and for being a crafter - like me!  Us crafters make the world a prettier place - lol.

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
