Life happens... don't cry over spilled milk handmade card

I am a mom of six.  Five beautiful daughters and one strapping son.  I am well aware with life just happening.  From Spilled Milk (my Nanna always reminded me NOT to cry over such things) to broken chairs and more - lol.... so on Today's National "Don't Cry over Spilled Milk" day (who knew they had such a day?!?!) let's celebrate and remind ourselves that... coffee helps! (lol)

I adore the Coffee Cafe Bundle - saving 10% on these coordinating products and it's about coffee (and other drinks like this spilled milk!).  With a little fussy cutting - creating a spilled milk scene is so easy (and reminds me of my life, right??).
You can almost taste it - the milk and the defeat of these type of moments.
~  Stamp the Vellum with the large Coffee Cup from the Coffee Cafe stamp set.  
~  Die-Cut with the Coffee Cups framelits dies on the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (the Magnetic Platform really helps to hold it for a perfect cut frame).
~  Fussy Cut with our Paper Snips and the Glossy White card stock this spilled look.
~  Adhere to the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (4" x 5-1/4") with rolled Glue Dots (so it hides behind the stamped line as vellum shows adhesive).  
~  Stamp the wood with the Life Happens, Coffee Helps sentiment with Versa Mark and cover with the White Embossing Powder.  Heat set for this raised image. (Seriously - it is so true - coffee sooo helps!)

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
