Butterfly bookmark

This week I am in Utah!  My amazing sister is a wonderful author (Tess Hilmo) who writes young reader books (that are amazing!).  We both have the reading passion gene... so for a 3D Swap this week (at Inspire, Create, Share the Stampin' Up!

The new Banner Triple punch is a great tool everyone needs!!  I love it!  Here creating three banners using the punch in 2", 1-1/2" and 1" I actually cut and scored the card stock - punching the edges at the same time!!  Banners are so fun, on trend and easy to use in crafting!
Die-Cutting this new Bold Butterfly thinlits creates a delicate and pretty lacy paper butterfly with ease!  I will advise using thinlits, like this, in a sandwich of:
Magnetic Platform & a Cutting Plate
Dryer Sheet
Card Stock
Wax paper
Thinlits
Cutting Plate
this allows the delicate lacy lines to pop out with ease and the little chad like pieces to pop out like a breeze!  I do use a toothpick to pop out the butterfly pieces and even use the Wax Paper piece as a gossamer effect.  (See more tutorials on the Basics of Stamping when you click here!)

Add color when you use the Dauber in  the Calypso Coral ink pad for a coordinated look.  Using the Handheld Stapler is ideal as it has a longer reach and smaller stapler all of which is perfect for crafting!!  I stamped the butterfly pieces onto the banner punched pieces that I'd threaded onto the paper clip.  Covering the staple (to protect fingers and books) with the last banner is a simple technique that is easy to do.

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
