Using a 12" x 12" Shadow Box Frame, we added depth and interest to our creations.  This was the one that Shana made (isn't it fab!?!)

~  Start with the Cupcakes & Carousel Designer Series Paper in 3" pieces.
~  Stamp your images from the Perfect Mix stamp set in Black Archival ink.  Stamp the image, again, on Very Vanilla card stock.
~  Frame with 3-1/2" pieces of card stock that coordinates.
~  Water Color Pencil in the stamped images on the Very Vanilla card stock.
~  Blend with the Blender Pens and Highlight with the Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.
~  Fussy cut the Very Vanilla images out with the Paper Snips and layer over the stamped Designer Series Paper with Stampin' Dimensional Adhesives.
~Layer over a piece of 12" x 12" card stock (we have Basic Black and Whisper White in stock - here I used our stock-piled colorful versions).
~ Frame and WOW as a gift or when friends and family see it in your kitchen.
I used a Delightful Daffodil card stock and Early Espresso card stock for my images to coordinate with my yellow walls.  Shelby is a white and soft blue or yellow girl.. so I made this for my dear friend to celebrate all that she does for others (including us).

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
