Planner Love

I plan my life out.  I have to.  I'm a mom of 6, a wife, a business owner, a daughter and sister... so I have to plan it out.  I am trying to be proactive versus reactive.  So on our recent vacation up to Big Bear Lake (sigh) I did bring my planner.  I used to to plan our Summer dates, to book an upcoming Crafting Retreat (shhh - news will come out soon enough!!).  I couldn't pass up these views either!!  This is the view from my deck and it just makes everything better. 


I've loved my business oriented weekly and monthly planner by The Printed Planner.  She creates planners for direct sales businesses and general businesses.  The downfall was that it was spiral bound with plastic and not structured enough for me.  I also needed a place for notes.

Innnn walks in my A5 Color Crush Planner!!
I love using our Project Life cards and coordinating washi tapes to add pop out notes for journal-ling.  This weekend we had two of our daughters with birthdays (we have 13 bdays from April-May in our family!).  I popped notes out on what fun we had so we can add them to our Memory Documenting books.  (These current collections ROCK and are Retiring!!  Score YOURS Now and Save when you Click here.)
My Color Crush planner is super cute and it slips my The Printed Planner into one side.  This snaps shut, is super cute and helps to hold my life and memories together! 
I love this striped baby!  With fun charms from our Stampin' Up! leadership 25th Anniversary Special - and they both coordinated - I'm wearing accessories on my planner!
Perfect Fit!  Shut the front door!  I love that they fit in together.  I now can store notes in the cute pages from Webster's Color Crush, hold my pretty sparkling pen and my pencil all with cute paper clips and more.  
What a VIEW!  I love planning.  Like my card making classes, planning gives me some amazing connections with awesome ladies.  Join Us for TWO Planner Events in ONE Weekend!  We have a FUN Planner Stamp Night - for free, on May 13th.  I'll be pulling out my planner themed stamp sets and rotary stamp so we can have a blast creating and decorating!

Then join us for another Planner Meet Up coming up!!  CLICK HERE to RSVP for this Free Event (you just need to purchase food and/drinks to attend).

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
