Every lovely lady should own a pretty dress (and fabulous heels).  I am in-love with the fine-line drawing of this collection and how fun it will be to personalize to each friend and family.  The look of grey, red and pops of yellow is fabulous, as well.

Our Card Making Wednesday mornings are so much fun.  I am introducing a new element to this; for those who came and those who couldn't make it - here is a quick video tutorial on the projects we created!  Enjoy connecting and creating with me (even from the comfort of your own home).

Deliver a lovely lady in the rain to brighten up the day.  Here we are enjoying grey skies during December in Southern California.

Create some sparkle in the rain:
~ Start with Smokey Slate card stock, Smokey Slate Designer Series Paper (3"x4") from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.
~ Using the Real Red Stampin' Write Marker to color and stamp the saying on the corner of the Smokey Slate card stock.
~ Adhere the pretty Designer Series Paper to the corner of the card with Fast Fuse adhesive.
~  Stamp this lovely lady on the Whisper White card stock (2-1/8"x 3-1/2") with Basic Grey Archival ink pad.
~  Stamp the same lady, again, on the Real Red Designer Series Paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack.
~  Use Paper Snips Scissors to fussy-cut the dress out.  Adhere to the stamped girl.
~  Color in the Umbrella and heals with the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker.  Apply Stampin' Dimensional adhesive to the girl or depth to the front of the card.
~ Add odd-number adhesive backed rhinestones to the card.
~ Take it up a notch, paint on Clear Wink of Stella to the umbrella, heels, her hair.
Deliver a bit of sunshine and beauty even in the midst of the grays of our life.

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
