I love our Sponge Daubers - they are fun and easy to use.  Here wanted to create a polka dot background on this Basic Grey card stock.  I tried a random pattern but it just didn't work for me.  Grabbing my Dots Decorative Mask, Sponge Dauber and Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad I had a blast creating this simple and classic (but on trend) background.
I love the elegant and beautiful From My Heart stamp set.  I hate to see it go but am so glad that I have it for my own collection!!  SCORE this stamp set (and more) as well as Papers, Inks, Accessories, Tools, etc. on our Last Chance Retiring List.  

Stamped here on the Basic Black card stock the Silver Encore ink, the elegant script is the perfect accessory to this easy hand-stamped card.  Framed out (like a good pair of earrings - lol) the adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewels.  
I love the pencil skirt and it's return!!  Here this is a stylish and on trend (while being classic) fashionable look.  No matter where you find your inspiration - have fun and create works of art (in your hand-stamped cards) that will fashion a smile or two!

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
