Cutting this Sweet Sorbet FREE Designer Series Paper into a 2-1/2" x 12" Strip.
Velcro Dots!  If you are like me washing your dishes is a challenge when there are embellishments on it.  By Applying adhesive-backed Velcro dots you can remove the embellishment/cozy and reapply when clean (or change out for the seasons). 
Apply the Crisp Cantaloupe Stretch Ruffle Trim to the back of the 'cozy' with the Crystal Effects liquid adhesive.  It dries clear with out bulking up.  It does take a few beats to dry but will hold this pretty ruffled ribbon to the 'wrap/cozy'.
TOP It Off!!
Creating a topper makes for a pretty topper and can also work as a coaster in a pinch!  Here the Circle Collection Framelits on the Big Shot Magnetic Platform and Die-Cutting Machine creates a perfect layered topper.  Crisp Cantaloupe card stock frames the smaller Sweet Sorbet Free Designer Series Paper* topper.  When you have them cut, adhere and then cut the center out with the smallest of the Circle Collection Framelits!
Wrapped up, it's a fun and personalized gift that suits my friend and stamper Georgia's style!  Crafting is fun but I always keep a cup with me to drink... and a lid on that cup!  I can't tell you how many times I've spilled on a beautiful card... this helps out, lol.
Create this Notched bottom to wrap around the handle of the Mason Cup.  It's easy and fun.  I did apply adhesive around to add a little support and help prevent it from ripping. 
It pulls together for a cohesive and polished look.  When you drink from a fun glass it makes water even fun!  Spice it up for a picnic/bbq with Iced Tea, Lemonaide and more... and everyone will be in awe of your style, while no one mistakes their drink for yours!
Georgia was a hoot - she says the sippy cup is just her style and that she'd always wanted one!  We just have the best time crafting together!  She always blesses and impresses me when we create...

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
