What happens as we are Gettin' Crafty Stampin'

What I do so that I can play and create with my friends... sigh (lol).  Together with my amazing friend and assistant Laurie, my daughter and tons and tons of die-cutting... we gathered to create 20 hand-stamped Christmas cards, enjoy a chocolate fountain, fun drinks, laughter, connecting and crafting in this fun card making class!!
Serious fun!!  Creating a variety of the 6 hand-crafted cards in one fun filled night!  Most of us were ladies but we even had a super handsome 10 year old boy who had a blast creating the cards with his Grandmother.
THISSSS is what happens when the Delicate Ornaments thinlits die's didn't arrive in time for the class.  My amazing assistant and one of my daughters helped to prep the ornaments I was cranking out with our Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits (that coordinate the with the Embellished Ornaments stamp set in a great 15% savings bundle!!).

~  Ask ME how YOU can get the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine for FREE or 1/2 OFF!!  With a full collection from the one of the best catalogs in ages - you can be the first to enjoy the awesomeness and score the FREE Items when you book a Private Class with me!  Score the BEST Deal of $125 for only $99 and FREE Shipping when you take the starter kit home - a kit YOU Pick!!  ~
Using the new Precision Base Plate in my Big Shot really helped to make sure the little "hanging chads" were easily removed.  My angels really helped to make sure they were all ready to use in the class.  Imagine near 400 die-cut ornaments.. that is the love I have for crafting (lol) and the amazing ladies who joined this in-person and to-go class.
I love that they loved the cards we created... here was their pick for 'favorites'.  From our pretty-paper (Designer Series Paper) to our Glimmer Paper we were surrounded with such beauty.
Create, Connect, Craft while Card Making... it is the highlight of my month when we gather and have fun.  You Are Invited.. Join Us (in-person or take the class to-go) and you, too, can be part of the fun.  Sending a hand-crafted card into the world is a hug, gift and piece of art all wrapped up in a hand-made card for the holidays and just-because.

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
