Thailand, a Father's Day Gift


Giving the gift of Thailand to my husband for Father's Day is so much fun!

This sweet package came in early this week but I held it as a SURPRISE for my husband and kids!
We are up at our home-away-from-home (aka) Big Bear Lake.  (Did you know that my crafting pays for our time up at the lake?  It's one of the ways I contribute to our family.)  We love being up at the lake and for Father's Day.
My husband and kids are a big part of my business that I run from home.  Hubby's famous BBQ Popcorn, setting up and prepping BOGO Sales, and more.  My kids who help with die-cutting, punching, cleaning up (after many battles).
SUCH a pretty package!  With less than 3 weeks until we take off for this amazing trip that I earned thanks to my crafting and card making business that YOU Support!

Created from our time up in Big Bear Lake, CA.. I gave my husband our Thailand packet to open.. he helps so much with my business... this is a trip for us both.

I hope that you enjoyed this Video Tutorial. Don't forget to Sign Up and Follow my Gettin' Crafty Stampin' YouTube Channel.

Fun facts on Thailand, our agenda, flight info, cute elephant luggage tags, name tags and more, wrapped up in a great holder and our Peach Crinkle Seam Binding.
Squeeee!  I've earned smaller trips but THIS, this is an amazing achievement (and on my 10th anniversary with Stampin' Up!).  Right now I am working on earning Alaska (for my husband, our youngest four kids and I).  As we homeschool, have a small farm and I work on earning this trip until the end of September, this upcoming vacation for just my husband and I has me over the moon.

THANK YOU!
Thank you for supporting my passion for creating and connecting with others.  For connecting in-person, on my blog, Facebook and more.  I may be crazier than most but I love the simple act of creating a hand made card to connect with others (and connecting over our card making classes).  
Stamping Blessings and love,
Jamie and the Albanese family

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
