Work hard to play harder

I hope that you and your family and friends had a blessed Thanksgiving.  This year my hubby planned a weekend away at our place in Big Bear Lake, CA.  With fresh snow falling as we drove in, the fluffy white stuff (a.k.a. snow) had us over the moon (it is so much fun to watch, visit and enjoy for us as we don't have snow where we live).  The Village was PACKED with like minded people - I was even blessed to see an old friend with the same aged kids as me up as I was shopping my favorite boutiques!
I am beyond blessed to do what I love and love what I do.. my crafting, your support in booking a Private Class with me, purchases, class attendance,taking to-go classespicking the best kit and saving while joining my team and more blesses us with the funds for our get-aways!  These trips to the beach or lake, my kid's music lessons, fun gift shopping, etc.. the hard work I do and sharing my passion for crafting blesses our family!
In January I will be celebrating my first decade with Stampin' Up!  I joined when I was two weeks away from giving birth to my daughter.. we've had two more kids since, a major move and even survived major car accidents and more... Stampin' Up! has brought me the most amazing friends, blessed our family, been with me through the fun, the easy, the sad and the challenging times in life. Where has the time gone??
I can't thank you enough for your support!  This was our weekend get-away.. I wanted to share it with you as you make it possible for me to do this with my family.  Thank you!!
This was also our 17th anniversary of my hubby and my being together.  17 years ago my step-daughters joined us in a date where they made me promise to take their dad to a school recital.. on a date.  What a fun adventure it's been.. blessing us with 5 beautiful girls and one strapping boy!
Big hugs from ALL of us... I look forward to seeing YOU at our fun events, join the Gettin' Crafty Stampin' family (and score the BEST Deal - let me show you how!!), book a Private Class (secure a Shopping Spree while having a blast with your family, friends and ME!) and shop with me any time of day or night.

YOUR Support, friendship and crafting fun has blessed us so.  Thank you!
Stamping Blessings,
Jamie and the Albanese 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
