~ Using the Aqua Painters to water color this Black Archival stamped image is so easy.

~ When it dries, after 15 minutes or so, it'll remain 3D and high-shine!

I love our Grid Paper for all of my crafting needs.  With one of my favorite photopolymer alphabet stamp sets, Layered Letters, I created this great tag with ease!
Because the photopolymer stamp set I can easily line the letters up in a straight line and with spaces.  Here I used two of these stamp sets to create this one saying.

With our awesome Tag Topper Scallop Punch and the Whisper White card stock we created cute Gift Tags for these Gift Bags.
Line the letters up with ease!  If you have one stamp set you can set the first half up and easily go back and line up the second half.
Clear Block I is ideal for most words and names!

Teacher love

I am an artist at heart.  My ability to draw may not be up to par, one of the reasons I love the medium of stamping and paper crafting.  As the school year wraps up, one of my favorite gifts to give teachers is a fingerprint art.  Here is the tree art we made with the kids in two of my daughter's classes.  I love that the inks and Aqua Painters we have are such top quality that it makes for this not talented painter to create something sweet and memorable.  Join us and create, connect over card making at our fun classes and celebrate those in your life!

I know that our teachers were greatly blessed by this sweet bit of art.  Using the vellum, printing a note about how the teacher helped to give them roots so they could reach the sky on my printer.  This isn't show quality art but it's special for those in our life.  Creating feeds my soul, allowing me to gift something that is safe for my kids to create (a baby wipe was the simple fix to clean up their green finger tips).

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
