Welcome Home hand-crafted card

Celebrate those in your life from the loss of their presence to the excitement of a new home.. saying Good-Bye is hard to do (with Facebook it's easier to keep in touch).  When friends of ours were given the opportunity to have a dream job.. we were sad to see them go.  Their dream home is a beauty but across the nation from us.  Here is the hand-crafted card I created for them that 'housed' some of our love.

Add some curtain and glass to those 'windows' with the Venetian Lace Trim and the White Vellum Card Stock.
Trim down the end of the Cherry Cobbler so that the 'roof' will peek through of the embossed Crumb Cake card stock base.  Add Dimension and depth using the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive. 
I love the embossed 'roof' on the inside of the hand-crafted card.  Stamp this fun two-part sentiment from the Happy Happenings stamp set.  Accent with the Heart (from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack) and the Gold Glimmer Paper
Rheana is a genuine beauty inside and out.  I love her warm, loving and calm spirit.  Her hubby is a great guy and race car driver.  He assisted my son with a report on the Lotus race cars and was a great example to my impressionable son.  We will miss them and their family!!
A fun banner flag across the front.  The Banner Triple Punch makes it so easy to do!  Using my Bone Folder I 'waved' the banner across the home.  It comes together with such love for this amazing family!!

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
