Happy Father's Day...

Today is Father's Day.  Up at our favorite place our kids are cooking away, we have the world's best view, our kids sing songs they composed to their dad and we have fun little gifts to give him.  One of my very favorite things about our Paper Pumpkin kits is that they are so timely.. creating this May kit with it's perfect masculine style and sentiments makes it so easy to appear timely (we made this at our Coffee and Cards back in May - lol!).  So today, up from our home~away~from~home we wake to the most amazing view, birds chirping, kids cooking and a day all about their dad and memories of my Father and Grandfather.

When this Paper Pumpkin arrived I was overjoyed!  My husband loves the mountains and this was ideal in it's look, it's ease and it's great saying.  Between us, holidays like this can be challenging for my heart.. missing my Grandfather and Dad makes it hard to create.  It shoes how my heart and soul is tied to my creating.

Creating this little artwork is a fun side passion of mine.. how our stamping can combine with my love of wood working.  
Why Paper Pumpkin?  There are sooo many reasons!  
~  They are All~Inclusive crafting kits, easy to create in less than 30 minutes.
~  My kids love creating with them, as well, and don't need my help!
~  They are timely... they arrive before the holidays - with time to create them at your leasure.
~ They are stylish and beautiful.
~  They are so affordable at only $19.99 a month (or save with multiple months pre-ordered).  
~  They come right to your home ~easy peasy.

I was the only girl in wood and metal shop as a kid.  I also knew how to drill and plumb a bath tub by this time - lol.  Sitting my my Father's knee, I worked along side of him creating custom Jacuzzi jet bath tubs.  Let's just say, creating with tools is second nature.  Create your own wood art with our amazing stamp sets!  
~  Using the Waterfront stamp set stamp the mountains in Early Espresso ink.
~  Stamp the grassy area in the Granny Apple Green ink.
~  Stamp the water with our Coastal Cabana ink pad, alternate the inking... Technique:  Stamping Off... stamp the image once in the Coastal Cabana ink pad then without re-inking turn the image and stamp again for a lighter stamp.
~  I love the sun stamped in the Mango Melody ink.
~  This greeting from the Country Road stamp set looks ideal with the Early Espresso ink pad.
A man's blessings are his children, aren't they?  My husband John has five daughters and one son.  
This man is happy to have his youngest four kids at his favorite place.. up at the lake.

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
