Lake views..

I work hard... this is an understatement as some days I barely sleep.  Being a wife, mom of 6, owning my own business, schools, to-do's, etc.. I live by my planner these days, just for that reason!  I'm sharing with YOU that my work as a crafter, teaching card making and selling you the best quality papers, inks, embellishments, accessories, stamp sets, Project Life, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machines and accessories.. eeek - I just love it all and it helps me to provide for myyyyy family!!  
OK so this - this is the view from my deck.  We love our excursions to Big Bear Lake.  My crafting pays for these blessed escapes!  I love giving this to my family!
Seriously?? They are so cute.  I love my minions.. they love me, my hard work (that I have so much fun doing) and our escapes to the Lake.

My babies.  We've been coming up here for 10 years now.  Watching them grow, visiting local businesses that see us as locals, taking cooking lessons in the Village, amazing locally owned stores, tons of fun, lake views.. it's the perfect escape!
This cute bear has been a staple in our Memory Documenting.  I love seeing them grow from babies into young adults.



I usually score a date-night even, an excuse to dress up and go out with my husband (every girl loves an excuse to doll up, right??).  So thanks for all of your support.  I'm blessed to work hard and play harder by doing what I love and loving what I do.

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
