Planning a New Year

I am a Planner Girl.. owning my own business, a mom of 6 (4 of which I home-school as of this year), a farm life, a wife, and more.. I need my planner!  Thanks to the Direct Sales Planner, I have a planner centered around my Gettin' Crafty Stampin', Stampin' Up! business.  Join the FUN... come crafting with us and jump in on a Planner Meet-Up!
My church has a family pot-luck through out the year.  Today we started the year off right by sharing a meal, worshiping, serving and hearing some great words of advice on setting our goals for this year.  I've been swamped this year.  Tired.  This is amazing advice from our pastor, I made this pretty meme to help me remember it.  What are YOUR goals this year?  Scheduling fun, life, work, family and friends into your life will help create a full life.

Making my planner pretty... I love that I am planning out my New Year.  Here with the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape (in Copper Foil!!) I mark the side of the page so it's easier to find. 

Our Bow Paper Clips are great!  They are super cute, remind me of Kate Spade as a bow is classically pretty.  

It's so great knowing what is coming my way.  Planning for upcoming Card Making Classes, BOGO Sales, New Catalogs and more. I tuck my planner into the back of an A5 Color Crush Planner and I'm ready to track and stay on-top of our lives. 
When you start planning your life it's more than just a monthly planner.  For me, I live a busy life.  I forget the most common activities and often end up double or triple booked.  Writing it down, adding pretty stamps, stickers, washi tape and more makes it fun.  Week by week is my second break down.
I use our Project Life collections, like this Hello Lovely collection (it's my favorite and perfect for card making, gift tags and more!).  Here I make a flap out section and use it for my classes and activities.  I can track the event and what we do or who attends on the other side.  This is so helpful in my busy life. (I've been behind in doing my planner and such, so it's made me feel out of control - ugh!)
I can write what occurs on the inside of this pretty card.  Tucking it in helps me to keep track, not have lose papers and more while being clean and neat.  It is so pretty, too!
A week at a glance.  I go to TOPS, conference calls, meetings, homeschooling, activities, classes and more each week.  I can see, too, if and where I am wasting my time.. schedule in some fun and more.

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
