Mini me??

Ok so my kids are real lil mini me's. Whether its looks or personality i love when I see a bit of me in them! We planned out this summer and found that we all would rather Sea World and Lego land to Disneyland! Who knew a kid wouldn't pick Disney?!?!!

I wanted to give my kids a dash of Disney for the summer and this quickly became a swap for Convention! I had people tracking me down!! Seriously asking if I was the Mini Mouse lady!! Made me laugh!! I felt soooo good too!

I was holding this paper when a call came in from a neighbor who wanted this paper! Sooo trippy! She had me order her some and I made this card! What do you think??

I planned to use our Real Red button from the Brights set. When I decided to make it a swap?? I realized that I didn't have 24+ lil red flower buttons! So hmmmm what to do, what to do?!?? I tried the clear buttons but that was not as cute!

So out came my punch bin and I realized that the lil flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack!! So stinkin' precious!! It works, it was unlimited in what I could punch (Seriously, howwww many can one get from an 8 1/2" x 11" paper?? Tons!!)

This easy card really is ideal with the use of our Simply Scored (sooo easy and fun too! I scored the whole 12x12 sheet of Real Red from the Polka Dot Parade paper. The white cardstock is fun after being run through the Perfect Polka Dots Folder and my Big Shot! It now emulates the polka dots on the DSP! Creating the Mini Mouse with 1" & 1/2" black punched circles, could it get any easier??

Remember that Hot Glue allows for the scored and folded lil "lolly" to stay where you want it! I used it to assemble the Mini Mouse and flower too! Sentiments were easy and fun with both the new Itty Bitty or the label words. I hope you feel a lil bit of Disney with this card, I sure do! Want to play?? Let's talk!

(This is such an I Am Savvy card or an I Am Having Fun card, isn't it?!? Lol)

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
