Seattle... oh you hold a bit of my heart!

What a blessing it is to have Stampin' Up! send us to an amazing trip... one that starts in Seattle and dives into Canada and Alaska.  

Seattle has been an unexpected adventure with a friend and fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Sue and her Ron,  picking my husband and I up at the airport with Leoni from Australia and her husband.  We delved into Pikes Market immediately for a full day full of fun.  


 Amazing Colorful Inspiration!



John and I explored on our own the following day Downtown Seattle.  Taking a fun bus to the Monorail we explored the Chihuly Glass Gardens, I scored a fun Henna tattoo of my scissors logo and we had a blast!
 I lived off and on with an amazing friend in High School.  Harmony and I met my Junior year in High School and have been friends since!  She living here in Seattle with her husband and son gave me the most amazing opportunity to see her and spend time.  I couldn't ask for a better tour guide!  Amazing company, views, time together and fun.  
Create connections, memories and fun.  

Tomorrow we join our friends from all over the world with the top 1% of Stampin' Up! world wide.  We set sail for amazing adventures and fun.  
****
I hope to have some wifi to share our grand adventures with YOU!

Don't miss out on the amazing Bon Voyage Specials I'm offering... I would love to bless you while your support will help me!

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
