Cleaning day... Clear Block Cleaning How-To

What is a Craftermath?  It is what occurs after crafting and card making... the left behind messes and chaos.  With my crafting weekly, in-person classes and online classes, swaps, happy mail, retreats that just occurred and more.. you can imagine what my crafting area looks like.
This week is where I dive in head on to tackle my chaos.  
Why?  
Because I deserve a clean area!
How do I start??
Cleaning my Clear Blocks.
Clear Blocks take a beating... 
~ With the hands that touch it (imagine any oils from your hands, germs, colds, etc on these blocks).
~ Ink... every single time these clear blocks protect my hands from hitting those ink pads.  In selfless honor they take the beatings and inkings (lol).
~  Embossing Pastes, Brusho, ink drops and adhesives.. they all land on these beauties.

Grabbing my Clear Blocks and these items... 
~  Gloves (protect your hands, don't allow the abuse these blocks take go for nothing - lol).
~  Norwex Enviro Microfiber Cloths (These have silver worked into the fibers, doing the hard work for you and sanitizing your clear blocks).
~  Norwex Pink Cloths (These clean windows, mirrors and our clear blocks with a fine polish and have the silver in the microfibers as well).
~  Lemon Oil (Here I use Young Living brand oil.  This is an acid based oil, gloves really come handy here.  The added benefit of the amazing clean smell is a bonus!).
~  Novus #2 Fine Scratch Remover (This was designed, I believe, for cars and it has warnings on how harsh it is on skin, to try a sample area, etc.).

All new crafting and card making fun.... see this Easy, Quick Clear Block Cleaning tutorial.

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
