Peacock hand-crafted collection gift box

A gift.. a gift of hand-crafted love.  My friend Kim asked me to partner with her and make a gift for her beloved sister.  A sister who (A) loved peacocks and (B) loved purple.  We partnered up to create this box of fun as her sister's birthday gift.  She loved it so much - it may become a class in March!  Join Us in creating and sending love, wrapped up in a hand-stamped card at our card making classes.
Packed with love.  We used the My Paper Pumpkin box to create a fun gift for her sister.  I love re-purposing these great sized boxes into gifts.  Lined with purple tissue paper for a dramatic presentation.  Wrapped up the FREE Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper for a pretty new look to this box.

It comes together with hand-stamped cards, stamped envelopes, a re-used embellishment box and two matching hand-made necklaces so these sisters can have 'BFF' type necklaces.
Heat embossing on the Very Vanilla card stock base this Perfect Peacock is quite dramatic in the raised gold.  Water colored with Crushed Curry, Island Indigo and Elegant Eggplant inks using the Aqua Painters.
Creating matching necklaces is easy when you use a glass pendant kit.  Here framing just the bottom of the silver heat embossed (109131) for a match to the silver necklace.  Using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the pieces together was super easy and fun to do.
Create some sayings.  Giving this as a gift, she doesn't know how her sister will use these cards.  We used the Word Widow Punch (119857) and the And Many More stamp set (134273).  Adding them to this empty embellishment container is a fun addition.  We added the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive (104430) to the back - leaving a cover so she can apply it when she is ready to send it.

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
