OnStage FUN!

I was Missing In Action a little the past week.. between sick kids and Boarding a Jet Plane to Salt Lake City, Utah.  With some of my Getting Crafty Family flew to join the Stampin' Up! OnStage!
This is the start of Stampin' Up!'s 30th Anniversary.  Wow.  A company, now a days, that started with two moms and grew into an international, debt free, growing and supporting other men and women in owning their own businesses.

I am approaching my 12th Anniversary with Stampin' Up! where I joined two weeks before having my daughter.  Where I had two more kids after that.  Where we moved, started over and grew - all with Stampin' Up! as part of the heart of our lives.
With Michelle, Monique and I (Anita was missing from our picture) we had a blast learning and growing, seeing what is coming (and WOW is it amazing!!).  
We are a family.  Getting Crafty Family is more than just a great discount, more than just an online and in-person group. We are friends and family.  Women and men who create together.  We have a blast and do it all while crafting!
I kind of freaked out!
I didn't know the awards coming my way until I opened my envelope.  I'm a mom, a wife, I homeschool our youngest four, we have a goat farm.  I also own my own business.  

I walked the Stage for Leadership, Recruiting, Promotions, Earning Alaska, and Sales.  It was also announced that I earned some Elite and Amazing positions... 
#4 in Recruiting for my stamping family.
#114 in the United States of America (over 30,000 demonstrators).
#214 out of the WORLD (over 45,000 demonstrators).
#1 in the heart of my family (awwww).

SWAG!!  We scored New Stamp Sets, Coffee Cup, Ribbons, Pins, Pens, Bags and MORE!
Join Us!
Our Getting Crafty Family is second to my own family.  We are blessed to be friends, live life and encourage one another and more.  
Together.
We come from all walks of life, with Getting Crafty Family all over the USA and world (military wives!!).
I could cry.
Really.
I do what I can as a wife and mom, yet my house isn't clean and orderly (like I wish).
I raise my kids and our pets while working to do the best I can... 
Then Stampin' Up! rewards me by walking across the Leadership Stage!
SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!!!!
Yeah - soooo me but I couldn't help it!  I think I will jump next time - lol!
Gear.
We rocked the new Family Logo/Crest in newly designed shirts.  
Because we sparkle.
Because we rock!
Over and over I heard my name called up - my crafting sisters hugging me... I may not see all the hard work I pour into our family but I can see the hard work and love come to life in my crafting business.  
Happy 30th Anniversary Stampin' Up!  
It is an honor to have joined you in your company as we Love what we do, Share what we love and Live it.. it has blessed my family and I beyond words.
Because of my crafting business I am blessed to call these and so many others my family and friend.

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
