Love

To do what you love. The exhaustion from working at something you love, with friends for friends, creating and connecting. Beautiful handmade projects, new and exciting projects, teaching others what I love ~ art, making something beautiful and fun while creating and sending this to others who will enjoy them.... I make handmade cards. It doesn't change the world. It does cheer others up. It does deliver love, kind words and art in the mail. It is creating and connecting with others. It is being with my Getting Crafty Family and Getting Crafty Stampers. We loved playing BINGO, Raffles, Prizes, the BBQ foods, making ice cream sandwiches from cookies 🍪 and ice cream 🍦. It is seeing others finding joy in creating. It is what I do. I just love it, too. Join in on the fun. Join us. www.GettingCrafty.net

My crew.. these girls help me to stay on-point and organize.. I couldn't be me and do what I love without them!

Amazing ladies creating... we had a BLAST!

What others are saying.... 
I’ve attended several of Jamie’s retreats and every time I’m amazed by the creative projects, generous gifts, and fantastic catering (food is important too!). We craft all day, play bingo for prizes and there’s never a shortage of beverages and snacks to keep us going. Jamie demonstrates new techniques and products that get my creativity going. I always leave with a new burst of inspiration and a full set of cards and crafts to share and display. The gifts are wonderful! The retreats are worth totally worth it! ~  Monique

Jamie is amazing! She doesn't just teach you how to create in her classes, but also shares other fun ideas to use the current "tools" for other projects. She is always giving awesome tips about proper cleaning/care for the products and organizing and storing everything. She always values you and your interests and tries to mold her classes specifically for those who are there. Her bubbly personality is infectious and you can tell she eats, drinks, breathes, and dreams all things crafting/stamping. Jamie is so inspiring with her creativity and how much time and effort she puts into Stampin' Up!  ~  Cheryl

I love Jamie's enthusiasm and love of SU.   I am on the east coast and make sure I am at the computer when her live facebook come up on Mondays.  She has such wonderful projects with tips and tricks to make it your own.  ~  Becki

I just love making cards with Jamie - she is so creative and passionate. She walks us through step by step, and encourages us as we make our creations. I'm always amazed at the artistic cards I've made! It's so nice to relax, have fun, and make beautiful cards. If you can't go to her classes in person, then watch some of her videos!  ~  Christine

Jamie has everything you need in her classes to create fun creative & beautiful cards. You can also begin to purchase your own supplies to do more on your own. Personally, I love going to her class & walking away with dazzling cards!!!  ~  Patti

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
