40 Lil Caterpillars

An Army of Love/Caterpillars!!
Having Little Kids means creating lil creatures and gifts! Here is our Give Away gift to all of my Son's and Daughter's classmates and teachers... 40 lil Caterpillars made out of last year's Valentine's paper, Pencils and our Heart Punches... the results - adorable! I took 1 Inch strips of our Retired Designer Series Paper (from last year's Occasions Mini) that contained lil dashes of glitter and folded them at 1 " increments... I punched a hole big enough to thread a pencil thru it (four connecting holes using my Crop A Dile). I like the results.. and making 40 of them wasn't so bad..
With our Heart Punches (large and small) from the Idea Book... the same hole size for the eraser/mouth... on hole for the fuzzy antenna and with our Tombo Glue I adhered the Google Eyes and the small Glitter hearts (from our Red Glitter Paper in this year's Occasions Mini). I drew lil hearts for the noses... and on the back of the heads I put a Heart and either my son's or daughter's names for their friends...

A FUN lil give away - no stampin' involved - but I do like to point out that Paper let's me be it's boss... he, he, he..

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
