Weddings.. sweet and wonderful weddings...

My Friend Kim is Gettin' Married!! Her and her Bob have set the date, picked the gown and set the colors!! I'm helping her with her Invitations, place cards, favors and such... they selected the colors from our Idea Book and several stamp sets... here I played with some ideas and their desires.. What do you think??
I LOVE the interior of this invitation... we are just 'playing' with design at this point but this is using Black, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla papers, Cherry Cobbler ink, our stunning Rhinestones and Vellum... Kim and Bob's wedding will have Deep Red, Black and Ivory... her dress is Ivory w/ hand sewn Crystals along the top (she's not a 'pearl' girl - she sparkles!!)...
Our Elegant Lines embossing folder is stunning... here it starts off w/ the Vellum cover... hiding the 'sparkle' and interior embossing...
BAM.. OK, so this MAY be my favorite... I think it captures her style, the dress (so stunning) with elegance and sparkle!

I really like the look of the Rhinestones on this card... it fits well into the embossed image on the Very Vanilla paper.. using my handles of my snipps - I pushed it into the embossed image to insure that it'll stay exactly where I want it - I dooo love being the boss of paper!!

Our Perfect Details Embossing Plate allows for this more 'formal', geometric pattern... the peaking of the Always Elegant swirl inside and Rhinestones adds a lil whimsey, doesn't it??
(Another favorite of mine - and my hubby's.... )

I embossed w/ our Big Shot each layer on the Geometric embossing side of the Perfect Details plate... then I layered them... the Always Elegant stamp set 'peaks' at the top and bottom w/ the Cherry Cobbler... the small sparkle adds that extra 'wow' factor... so subtle - not 'overly' sparkley.. lol. Kim really seemed to like this one... we'll see what Bob says...


  1. Jamie, you have come up with some great ideas for the invitations. I can hardly wait to see which card Kim and her Bob choose.

  2. Aww Gloria - thanks for this and the comment... xoxo - will let you know!!


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
