Suuuuuu weeet (!) lil Piggy!

Here, Piggy, Piggy, Piggy... lol... I do love the lil varmits!  My Aunt had a Pot Belly Pig for a while and I know it may not be the pet for me but I do love the cartoon image and thankfully not the real-life harry smelly version! 

My daughter's teacher collected Pigs and we purchased her a lil Piggy book for her end of the year gift... I hadn't blogged about it until now though.... I created for her these cute lil Piggy cards and then took a 'messed up' one and used it as the back of thissss lil Piggy... See how you can take a boo-boo and make it anew (new)!! 

So, using punches I created this lil cutie and then used Stampin' Dimensional adhesive to make it the front of the gift bag and layered!

Here is the back:

Layered it looks so great! The nose Pops UP and I used our adhesive backed Rhinestones for the snout and the eyes...

Usine the 2 1/2" Circle for the face/head, the large petal from the Blossom Petal Builder for the ears and the 1" circle punch for the snout!  I edged each punch of the Pretty in Pink paper with the Rich Razzleberry ink to make it really Pop!

Shhh... let's cover up that Boo Boo! te, he, he....

What boo boo, you may ask....Dang (!!)  I love how this lil guy came out!! 

Finished off this bag with our Polka Dot (retired) Razzleberry ribbon and a lil more bling... It's ideal for anyone who loves pigs, or super cute bags!  Have a Suuuuweeet Day!


  1. Absolutely adorable bag! My sister's former in-laws (both are up in Heaven!) had a hog farm....we inundated my sis/husband with cute pig stuff for years....may have to use this cute little guy to remind them we have not forgotten the past!!!

  2. That's Awesome Carol - I love the way this came out and a great way to use a Boo Boo'd card - lol... it's wonderful to have those memories!


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
