Preparing for The Holiday Season.... Halloween

I wanted to have fun with the upcoming Halloween n Fall seasons.

I snagged regular brown bags for lunches and ran it through the Spider Web Folder and my Big Shot. I love this look and do it for my kids when they have field trips!! My girls get flowered bags, my son gets this web or stripes, etc. they are the envy of all their friends on their trip!!

With our Googly Ghouls stamp set I stamped the lil girl with the witch hat and mini spider web on a Very Vanilla. I highlighted her with our adhesive backed rhinestones, and NEW Googlies (cute eyes!).

I stamped the larger spider on the bag before embossing the web with the Big Shot.

Stamping the Boooo on my wood clothes pin, colored all the eyes in with Pumpkin Pie ink. I colored the girls face in with Old Olive and her accessories with the Pumpkin Pie ink. Loveee our Stampin' Write Markers!! (I'm just saying...). I adhered the girl (after punching with our Decorated Label punch) with a Stampin' Dimensional adhesive and BAM! Cute, easy andddd Fun!!

I plan on filling it with fake spider webs and a lil present!! I hope you have fun with your Paper Bags!! Lol the Holidays are right around the corner... EEK!!


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
