Plant a Tree and celebrate

Go plant a tree.. or so that's what the goal is behind today's holiday!  Today is National Arbor Day, a day planned to encourage everyone to plant a tree and better the world.  Today I wanted to share some of my favorite but (sadly) *Soon-To-Retire collections (so grab them while you can!) in a quick 5 minute card.  Join us in-person or on-line at our many crafting and card making classes waiting for you!

~  Using the Garden Green Stampin' Write Marker color the leaves on the stamp.
~  Use the Early Espresso Stampin' Write marker to color the trunk and branches.
~  Apply to the Whisper White card stock (2-1/2" x 4").
~  Use the Garden Green Stampin' Write Marker to color in the grass and Happy Birthday wishes.
~  Add Sparkle with our Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush (I just love it so!).
~  Frame out with our Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (the two patterns are on each side of the same paper here!).
Apply with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive to Whisper White card stock, Garden Green card stock and Thick Whisper White card stock.
 I am having to resist.. as it is, on our small farm, we have over 18 fruit trees and many other plants.  I am actually next to a Butterfly Plant lady and we are looking into Bee Hives (eek - on top of our goats and animals!).  So today I'll have to avoid the garden center as my husband warns - I can't bring another living thing home (so the shelter, too, I guess - sigh).

Plant and grow something!  We don't need a day for that here in California - I fill my little farm full of bountiful trees, plants and more.  I love this 2-Step Stamping In the Trees stamp set that is *retiring.  It is so easy and fun to use in creating (I don't like squirrels but the ones in this set are toooo cute!).

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
