Birthdays for the Young and Older...

We had a busy weekend at my in-laws... Our End of the Year to New Year is packed w/ Albanese family birthdays.. My sister-in-law's daughter, Kaitlyn, is a teenager... and she just LOVED her card.. the spinning hand was a big hit!!
With our great Paper - Greenhouse Gala, Daffodil Delight and Very Vanilla... our amazing markers that paint on color... the new stamp set Take A Spin and our Game Spinner Hands (from our Occasions Mini).. it's an easy and fun card for a teen! I like the Real Red ribbon tied on top... like a lil present.. awww.

On to those who are Older... My Father-In-Law just turned 77 on Jan. 6th.. being that he's getting older... I couldn't resist this aged card.. lol...

Our Not Quite Navy cardstock, our amazing Newsprint designer series paper has this great Map on it... being that my FIL is from Italy.. I try to tie the international flavor in.. I aged it with our Log Cabin shimmer spray... Embossing the term 'Not just a year older, but a year better.' from our Bring on the Cake stamp set (from our Occasions Mini)... in gold (adding a little elegance to it) and our twine... it created this fun, easy, masculine, 'older' card that he enjoyed.

Celebrating with Family and Friends and giving handmade cards is one of the highlights of my hobby/passion/past time/business... sigh... a good start to a New Year.

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
