Mojo Challenge 103 Winter Progression

Hideee Hoe gang!! I couldn't resist this Mojo Challenge!! This 'Night and Day' Specialty Designer Series Paper inspired me and this stamp set is one of my favorites (it's on the dormant list).
I Flipped the Mojo Layout on it's side and started off w/ just the tree in Black... then I flicked the sides in black on the paper and placed it on the Back paper. I took the black and edged it in silver (to tie in the silver snow). I was thinking this was a lil 'dark' but cool.. it needed a POP so I stamped w/ the Real Red the Bird and boots and w/ the tire swing... I liked it. My beloved hubby asked me why I didn't do what I've done before and used the large brad and twine thread. Bam - a Progression on a cool card into something a lil more... what do YOU think?
Papers: Night and Day Specialty Designer Series Paper, Basic Black, Whisper White
Inks: Basic Black, Real Red and Silver
Accessories: Organza White Ribbon, Twine and Large Brad
Challenge: What can you take from Cool to WOW in a Progression?

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

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
