HandStamped earrings

I love my stamping and crafting business.  I am blessed beyond measure by my card making friends and Gettin' Crafty Stampin' Family.  Yesterday I flew across the nation for a Leadership Conference with my business coach Ronda.  I am rooming with friends and fellow crafting business owners.  A common thing we do, as crafters, is a Pillow Gift.  We make a gift for each night that we are rooming together.  Below is one of my Pillow Gifts (hand stamped earrings!) for the girls I am enjoying my weekend with.  Join Us and connect over card making and crafting at my many card making classes and retreats.

As a kid I was enthralled with Shrink A Dinks.  Playing with my stamps I created this handmade pair of earrings.

Making a 3D little gift that is so much fun is easy too!
~  With the Sweet & Sassy thinlits and the T-Shirt Builder Framelits Dies and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine Die-Cut Shrink Film create these custom shapes.
~  Punch a hole with the 1/8" handheld punch.
~  Stamp the Custom Tee 'Happy Stamper' greeting in the Sweet & Sassy die-cut heart and the Designer Tee '
~  Place in a preheated oven for 2 minutes and remove, placing something flat on it to assure that it's edges flatten out.
~  Thread onto earring bases for a cute dangling earring that shows my love of crafting!

Pinterest FAIL - lol!!  I've seen so many posts that using a SOLO type cup can create a Shrink creation.

Ummmm... NOPE.
It is such a Pinterest Fail that I had to share it with YOU!!  I can see where it looks like a Tee Shirt that m son may have washed and done something weird with (he balls up clothes, etc. - ugh he's such a pre-teen lol).  So I wouldn't recommend anything but shrink film.

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
