I love that the 12" Whisper White card stock makes these cute 3" square cards (you get 8 cards from one sheet of paper!!).  They are a fun size and does not require much writing (my Father-In-Law doesn't like to read long cards).  Here the classic look of the Guy Greetings stamp set is sharp on the Whisper White card stock (inside) and the Sahara Sand 1/2" strip to the front with the Early Espresso ink.
Create this stylish sweater look with ease.  We had this fun paper that went away in our Occasions Mini.  
~  Using this plaid print in a 3"x 2" strip score it down the center along the length.  
~  Fold it and then fold it softly down the middle.  The middle fold (like the bottom left box) gives you a point where to turn the collar in.  
~  Fold down each flap and hold it down with our Mini Glue Dots. 

Layer it over the pretty cable knit looking page and the Mini Glue Dots work like a dream (super strong while mini!!).

This reminds me of every TV Dad you'd see as I grew up (my Dad and Grandpa were plaid flannel men or western cut shirts).  The addition of our adhesive backed Pearl Jewels give a look of elegance to this stylish and masculine card that is perfect for Father's Day (or any day a man needs some cheer).  Men, too, require cards that celebrate who they are.  Using this quick and easy look with our fabulous double sided Designer Series Paper you can deliver some warm greetings.

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
