The Occasions Mini Catalog is a delight!  Packed full of fun stamps, papers and more.  Here stamping this picturesque Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack with the 'Timber' sentiment from the Wood You Be Mine? stamp set in Early Espresso.  Emboss this piece of paper in the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder for a cool accent of texture.
The Wood You Be Mine? stamp set is a Photopolymer stamp - this allows for easy layering.  You can not use Stazon ink with the Photopolymer stamps.  The Silver Foil sheets will not take the regular inks as it is not a porous surface.  So stamp on the BACK of the Silver Foil sheets and use the Paper Snips for a precision cut.
Paper Snips have super sharp edges and fine tips for precision cutting.  Those little 'teeth' of the saw were easy to cut.
Flip it over for a shining results (lol).  Layered over the rubber stamped and embossed wood sheet for a simple but wow hand-stamped card.

Add color!  This stamp set is designed to be layered.  Stamping these trees (using the Wild Wasabi ink pad) behind the sentiment for a cute accent to this hand-stamped card.
Shine, texture, simple but WOW?  This hand-crafted card has it all.  I can't wait to gift this to my son for his Valentine!  Having seen a silver saw elsewhere and not knowing where - I had fun taking a stab at this look.

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
