Pin a Flower to it

Sometimes you take a moment and look about your home, realizing that there is a need for something pretty.  It doesn't have to be expensive, can be fun to create and will add some interest to your home and/or office.  This Vintage Flower was created to jazz up my refrigerator - I wanted something pretty on it to add interest and joy to my kitchen.  The New Bouquet Bigz Die and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine gives me a fun new magnet that does all of that and more!

I love vintage accents in my home.  Creating a fun and interesting magnet to add some paper-crafting joy and inspiration to my kitchen was fun and easy to do.  The new Bouquet Bigz Die took my scraps of the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper and created this big blossom of a flower.  Die-Cutting 6 of the two sized leaves.  The centers are split up so that you can overlap it and create this curled leaf look.  Adhered together using my Hot Glue Gun for an over sized WOW flower.

Die-Cut the Center with the Blushing Bride card stock.  Center using the Antique Brads for a fun and easy accent that ties into the style of the hand-crafted paper flower.  Using my Bone Folder to curl the edges of the die-cut leaves.

The large variety of our double sided Designer Series Papers gives so many options to personalize your flowers.  The Bouquet Bigz Die (from the new Occasions Mini Catalog) is designed to create a large variety of flowers and accents for your hand-stamped cards to gift giving.

Give it a base.  Here the scallop punched Basic Grey card stock is a great base to this flower.  Adding the magnet will allow for it to accent an office or my kitchen!

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
