Creating leaves with a punch using material can be a real challenge (or even impossible!).  Here taking the Felt from my daughter's birthday party sleep mask craft (we created custom sleep masks - lol - for her sleep-over).  This is not able to be punched in a paper punch.  Using our new Bouquet Bigz Die (from the Occasions Mini Catalog) and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine I can cut through two sheets of felt with ease (like butter!!).  

Here die-cutting four of the smaller leaves and six of the medium leaves gives me the makings of a beautiful flower out of this ivory felt.  Note the split on the bottom of each leaf.  These are to be overlapped to create a curved petal.
Start with the smallest leaves and thread onto the back of our Antique Brad and overlap them as you do.  The larger leaves I sewed and then added to the back of the brad and felt.  Using Hot Glue to add a ribbon to the hair clip. Add the flower to the ribbon/hair clip with more hot glue.

This would be a lovely gift for a wedding bouquet, gifts for the bridal party (sorry, my oldest daughter, cousin's daughter and as of this weekend my neice are all engaged - it's on my mind) and gifts for my daughters to create for their friends.

Of course, one has to try out and model this hair bow - lol.  My dear friend has a STUNNING baby girl - an answered prayer - who is full of joy and lights up the lives of all she touches.  I created this pretty hand-crafted bouquet hair bow gift for this angel of a girl.  I loved giving a little bit of my crafting to adorn a beautiful little baby and lovely enough to last her a long time.  Give a little bit of yourself in a gift that keeps on giving.  I love knowing that every time she wears this, a little bit of my love will be with her.

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
