This simple technique will WOW. Simply color the back (matte) side of this printed Sheer Perfection Vellum with our Brights Stampin' Write Markers. Using our Glue Dots (103683) to adhere it to the Whisper White card stock. 


Paint the Lotus Blossom FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp sentiment with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker and stamp near the butterfly you want to highlight. 

Using the fine tip on the Dazzling Details, paint the butterfly your highlighting. This takes a little bit to dry and will create a slight rippled effect  as it dries but I really like that look.

I found this guide to cut a 12"x12" piece of paper into multiple pieces from a post on SplitCoastStampers.com .  It was so easy!  I used the 2" squares and cut them in 1/2 diagonally.  What a fun and easy way to create hand-crafted cards!
The Best Year Ever stamp set is designed to remind you of a photography effect - those light bubbles.  Here it creates a great layered look using the Crushed Curry and Coastal Cabana ink pads, layering the sentiment with the Soft suede ink pad over it for a lovely hand-stamped card.
This collection of patterns and colors is on-trend now.  Polka dots are a classic but fun look.  Our Designer Series Paper is sweeter as it is Double Sided - with two different coordinating patterns on each side of the paper.  It is super sweet that this packet of paper is FREE for a Limited Time (with a minimum purchase).

Create a collection of pretty hand-stamped cards to store in your drawer.  Having hand-crafted cards that are ready to go is a great way to show that you care and can do so at the drop of a hat.  These cards are easy to do with this simple rubber stamping technique.  Send some love this year - a hand-stamped card is worth it's weight in gold - a small measure of love that delivers big blessings.

Kids Memory Documenting

Create a legacy of love and memories while keeping your children busy.  When my kids were home sick they needed an activity.  They pulled out the Project Life album and were pouring over our family's memories.  My mini-me girl grabbed her own 6" x 8" book and started adding pages with her pictures and memories.  I love that this will give them time to remember their adventures and the people in our life while teaching them to document their memories for their own families one day.

We all have photos that we don't want to frame or make a big scrapbook page for.  Giving my children these photos does a few things.  It (a) gives the kids an activity (especially on a sick day like this was), (b) shows the children's thoughts, handwriting and more for the season that they are in and (c) cleans out my box of pictures!!  What a fun way to keep my kids busy while celebrating and leaving their memories for years to enjoy, I really enjoy seeing their hand writing and thoughts tied to the pictures that mean something to them.

Our Project Life by Stampin' Up! gives my kids the ability to quickly assemble pages of memories that are stylish.  With our card system you can add pictures and journalling cards, coordinated accessories and more with ease.  Stampin' Up! even has a FREE Collection of Project Life cards in theirSale~A~Bration Promotion
She's 9 and sooo cute!!  My mini-me, sassy, passionate and fun loving girl.  Giving her the Stampin' Trimmer to cut down images is a fun way to let her feel empowered and keep her busy.  This frees me up to work.  The Stampin' Trimmer is super easy to use - even a child can!  

With my children's sense of entitlement I pray this process will remind them and help them to understand that they live a blessed life.  I love the idea of seeing their hand-writing and thoughts as they change and grow.

A moment in time, capturing the hand writing and memories of my kids will be a fun way to look back at where they were.  This kid-friendly activity is one that we can do together or to keep them busy while I work.  Documenting and Celebrating our life is a fun way to ground my kids in the blessings that we have.  See how easy Project Life is and how you can incorporate it into your life and the life of future generations with my Memory Celebrating Monday posts.  Just think, some day her daughter may be looking at her mom's thoughts and writings - how cool is that??

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
