November's Paper Pumpkin

What I really love about what I do (in paper crafting and card making) is connecting with others.  Every Monday morning I offer FREE Card Making and Paper Crafting at Ragamuffin Coffee Roasters.  I love sharing the awesomeness of our Paper Pumpkin kits with people.. an all inclusive kit that has the stamp set, ink, paper, accents and adhesives to create beautiful and timely hand-crafted cards and crafts.
One kit, so much fun!  This fun filled kit is super easy to do, fun and the highlight of my kid's month (they do their own kit to thank, connect and bless others, too!).  Here taking the Paper Pumpkin card (in the middle) up a notch is easy to do with some Fussy Cutting (using our Paper Snips) and the Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper (139590). 
What a pretty poinsettia!  Our super sharp paper snips make it a breeze to cut these pretty and color coordinated flowers out as a bonus seasonal accent.




Create, connect, card making and coffee (or tea) with me, Jamie at a local artisan coffee house.  Shop local, small businesses and strengthen your community while you bless families directly!  Join Me on Mondays and at my full line-up of fun card making and you can connect, create and bless.
Seriously these cards are so cute!  Your first Paper Pumpkin kit is delivered with a clear block to use with the stamp sets.  When you are running out of the house at 7:40 a.m. to drop four kids off at three schools.. eeek.. you may forget your block (sigh) when you grab your Paper Pumpkin kit.  What to do.. what to do... first - have grace for yourself!!  Second.. get creative!!
The full stamp set comes with a printed sheet and a clear cover that is slightly thicker.  Use the cover!!  It holds your photopolymer stamps with ease and the cute ink pad works perfectly!  I sat with another crafter and we laughed when we found that it worked and worked great!  (Whew!!)
Options.. take it up a notch with the stamp you pick from the set (it comes with many options) and how you use the cute accessories (like these adhesive backed pearls and berries), the cute twine location and adding our pretty Designer Series Paper.  Which version do you prefer - leave me a comment and let me know!
What do you think??  Please Share Me and This with a Pin, Email, Facebook post, Tweet.. and Join Me with a follow on these avenues like Pinterest and YouTubeInstagram, LinkedIn and Foursquare! Get even MORE Gettin' Crafty Stampin' with our Exclusive Mailing List and it's many rewards!! 

Join me In-Person, To-Go or via Paper Pumpkin for awesome creative activities!  The Paper Pumpkin delivers right to your door and with a step-by-step tutorial, a video tutorial and all of the items you need to create these (I encourage you to have extra adhesive like Glue Dots and your Paper Snips).  Creating, connecting, card making (and sending them out to bless others), and a warm cup of coffee.  What we do is pretty awesome for our own soul and blessing others all wrapped up in a hand-stamped card.

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
