Planner Meet Up FUN!

What a blessed weekend I have had!  First I was over joyed to spend the afternoon with these amazing people!!  Who are they you ask?  Fellow planner lovers ~ that's who!  Some driving over an hour to come for our first (of many) Planner Meet Ups!  (Planner lovers and crafters - UNITE! lol)
THIS group also met up and we had 5 who due to life and illness couldn't make it (we missed you)!  I'm so excited to have these great events to connect and create while making friends.
Add coffee, connecting, creating and planners = a wonderful time!!  Local Planner Lovers are meeting at Ragamuffin Coffee Roasters each Tuesday afternoon for a Planner Power Hour - join us!
I had a blast making my goodie bags with our Project Life Paper Clips, Bow Punch Paper Clips and Wooden Elements Paper Clips (perfect for planners).  My Project Life 6"x8" pages are my dividers - reminding me that my reason WHY I do what I do - all of it - is my family.  I adore how pretty it is, too - my loves, my Project Life cards and I feel blessed.  Stamping my planner pages makes them pretty and fun to use.
Stacked up oh so pretty - many varieties but most of us had the same goal, to focus our life and make it prettier.
Squeeee!  This is my 'haul'.  Many of us enjoyed the donations by Torreh Pearl of Uppercase Living, The Planner's Coffee House stickers and then the generous swaps and gifts of all who attended.  Generous, funny, smart, sassy, kind and supportive.. the awesome people who joined us were so awesome to meet and get to know!  I adored showing how I make my planner prettier and store my memories, pictures and more using our Project Life cards, washi tape and pages.  Stamping my pages makes me so happy, too!

JOIN US at our Next Upcoming Planner Meet Up on March 5th (RSVP) for a dinner and planner fun time!  These free events are a fun way to connect, create and talk about our goals, love of planners, compare planners and more.

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
