Apples, Fresh Apples For Sale!

Living where we do, we are close to many farmers markets, it's amazing at how many fresh foods we get weekly! I see, often, many fruit trucks selling fresh produce (especially strawberries ~ yummm).

This truck gives me sweet smiles as I love apples, making pie.. Sigh. I wanted a rustic but clean cut card that embraces Fall! The LNS challenge is clean cut cards with much white space... This is rustic but elegant card has a ton of white (Very Vanilla) space.

The Color Coach takes Real Red and pairs it with Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso. Stamping the Countryside stamp set's truck with Early Espresso ink on a Very Vanilla paper. Coloring in the yummy apples with our Real Red Stampin' Write Marker, Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker for the truck. The not-in-this-pairing-but-works-cause-it-is-on-the-color card (do you like that!??! Lol) is Crumb Cake and I used this to color in the grass and interior of the truck, baskets and hub caps on this "older" truck.

I know it needs "more" so I nabbed our lovely, easy to use, get your frustrations out (lol) Paper Piercing Tool, Mat, and Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack. Adding two lil rows going across the bottom and up one side. It's a subtle but rustic addition to the card.

Our cute Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set has almost every sentiment that you could need! I used this under the new pierced lines the Friend to Friend in Real Red with my Stampin' Write Marker. Myyy teeny tiny daughter wanted to model it, wouldn't you buy an apple from her?? He, he, he...

A fun, easy Real Red and rustic card that has the essence of Fall!! Stamping the apple from the Countryside stamp set on the envelope and coloring it in allows for a sneak peak at what's inside! Don't you just smell the apples, hear the Fall leaves crunching under your boots?? Happy Fall Y'all!!

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
