COMPARE!  The card towards the back is pretty, it is just die-cut card stock for the butterfly.  The card in the front was taken UP a notch with the new Wink of Stella Gold Brush painted across the top.  The shine is fine and oh so elegant while being fun and easy to create. Use the Wink of Stella Gold Brush to simply paint across the die-cut butterfly and apply as much or as little (like a wink of - lol) to your design. 
 Stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card as the front would be too busy.  This stamp set and Garden Green ink make for a cute greeting.

10 years and going strong...

I was asked what my journey with Stampin' Up! has been... I wanted to share my answer with you.  So here I go lol.. 

When I signed up I was two weeks from delivering my almost 10 year old (Jan 24th was my 10 year anniversary with SU). I taught my first class while nursing my baby on a purple boppy to my MOMS Club friends. So much has changed over the years.. yet the best part of crafting and stamping is the connecting with amazing people.  Most of these amazing women are still my friends today!
My niece was engaged to a man serving in Iraq. He sent her a sympathy card scribbled out and hand written "Happy Birthday babe". She said "I know it should be the thought that counts but this stinks!"  The MOMS and I gathered to make him cards to send to her. They were married for four years when he was killed under a flipped jeep. She was 6 weeks away from giving birth to their second child. She has two stunning kids and a box of cards he sent that were hand crafted. That and a scribbled sympathy card. She has his written words to share with those babies as they age.
We moved while I was pregnant with my third born, our fifth child.  Shortly after the birth of our daughter, we suffered a major car accident. It was my stamping friends who showed. They helped me prep for my card making classes. They made us meals. 

I've struggled when people have suggested that what I do is trivial. Yes, I could sell make up, jewelry or clothes (all
of which I love) but this feeds my soul. I help people to connect and find friends. Many walk into my class and say that they don't have any friends. They have been sick, dealing with crisis, etc. and feel all alone. They connect. They create something and walk away having accomplished something beautiful. Something that will bless others. When I was at MOPS I was the craft coordinator. This was the feeling the moms needed. To accomplish something as we don't see what raising our kids (in the midst of it) does. We are elbow deep in balancing husband, kids and home - laundry, dishes, diapers, driving kids around, health concers and more. 

To create something beautiful means so much. I love what I do. The connections. As a mom I am in the midst of it all. Sometimes the only adult conversation and connection is through my crafting and stamping. 
(So THANK YOU for that!)
So as I am blessed to celebrate my 10th anniversary with Stampin' Up!  Sharing what I love, helping others enjoy creativity and worth while accomplishments, in this making a difference (the Stampin' Up! moto).  I know that it has made me into a better person. I signed up for the discount. For the FREE Sale A Bration items. I am now blessed to have some of my dearest friends come from card making. They bless me in my classes, on my Gettin' Crafty Stampin' Family/Team and just finding time to create with me. To connect.  I need it, some days, more than they do. I love the women (and men) who have joined me. 
My husband likes seeing what I do, too. He's a CPA but he sees what I do to support our family. He sees how it connects others. He sees how it blesses me (after I'm mad about cleaning the home studio and needing help ~ lol). I love supporting and contributing to my family with my passion to connect and create with others.

I couldn't do this with out YOU.  The Support, the Love, the Encouragement, the Friendships and so very much more.  Cheers and I look forward to another 10 years creating beauty and art (with very little ability to draw - lol), all wrapped up in a hand-crafted card.

My planner is helping me to stay focused, stop things from falling through the cracks and less stress from double booking. I am also using my planner to aid me in remembering who I see, attends my classes and documenting our memories (whew!!).  These planners (I use two for myself and one general family one) are helping me to breathe, plan and feel more in control.
Here the Let's Get Away Project Life cards collection and accessory pack is packed full of pretty adventure themed cards.  I adhere them to my planner for a fold-out card using the coordinating and fun Washi Tape from this accessory pack.  Using this to write about our adventures and memories.  This helps me to add the pictures and memories to our family and the kid's Memory Documenting books.

I adore the cute satin bow clips from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit from the Occasions Catalog.  This pretty Rose Red satin bow is a perfect fit for my to-go "little" calendar.

Making my planner pretty, functional and of interest.  I used the pretty and FREE Sky is the Limit stamp set to highlight my goals.. to soar!

I am using my 6"x8" Project Life Pocket Pages as my dividers!  Adding pictures of our trips to Big Bear Lake, my hubby and my kids are my WHY.  Why I do as much as I do.  So having this fun reminder is a great way to keep on-point.  The PRETTY, gold accented and FREE Memories in the Making Project Life collection are so pretty in my divider!
The Project Life card is a great way to write down who has RSVP'd, attended and more in my planner.  Truth is.. if I tried to remember on my own, I fail!  This is helping me to track my goals, activity and more.  It makes it easy to track, remember and document our life and work.  It is a fun interactive flap, too.

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
