When I saw this cute new Bow Builder Punch I knew I had to have it!  Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator means that I can have it 6 weeks before it's open to the public!!  I LOVE that!!  Punching the image twice gives you one bow.  Using the Bone Folder to curl the edges of the center bow halves.  Using the Glue Dots to hold all of the pieces together.  Build the bow and the Glue Dots make it easy to assemble.
Punch the center of the 4"x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock with the Heart Framelits on the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and Magnetic Platform.  Stamp your sentiment on the front, under the heart, with the Strawberry Slush In Color ink pad.


Layer the Back to Black Designer Series Paper or Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper* behind the punched circle with the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive for a cute window heart look.

Add the Bow Builder punched and built Strawberry Slush bow to the center of the 'heart window' with Hot Glue for an extra strong hold - this could even be mailed!


Happy Fashion Friday!!  I love, love, love fashion!  I love how it can be tied into my crafting and card making.  This New Year's morning our oldest became engaged.  The third thing I did (after congratulations and offering to hand-craft the invitations and decorations) was to look up some dresses I can wear as a Mother-of-the-Bride at upcoming parties - lol.  This dress caught my eye.  I could see my younger girls and I wearing similar dresses with a vintage and sweet vibe.  Of course it inspired my love-filled, Valentine, hand-stamped card.

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
