Butterfly Birthday wishes

A hand-stamped card really does say sooooo very much!  I can't tell you how I LOVE, Love, loveeeee receiveing personalized mail!  When a dear friend and stamper (whom I miss as she's been so busy), Carol, sent me this early hand-crafted Brithday Card - I just wanted to cry.  First, she knows that I LOVE Butterflies and nature... so she created a beautiful card that celebrates my birthday this month (on the 21st) and even has a moving piece!
I LOVE this card!!  I also love that my stamping and crafting has brought me some of the most AMAZING Women that have become my dear friends.  Love just grows.. friendships, you can't have too many.  True friends you can count on your hand and they are so very special.
The back butterfly actually moves!!  I LOVE that.
It folds flat!!
Carol even created a pretty coordinating custom envelope!  I LOVE Our Envelope Punch Board (133774)... it creates custom 66 different custom envelopes! 
Send some LOVE and Cheer up those in your life.  A friend recently asked me what I had planned for my birthday and I told her that I rarely think on my day as I'm so busy with family, kids, work, crafting and life.  When someone blesses me I am always surprised.  Oh, Carol is amazing when she blesses me - no words for HOW MUCH She does - she's made me the most amazing gifts but her friendship... it's a jewel in a rhinestone world.  I couldn't help but share with y'all my blessing.  Happy Stamping!!

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
