Toilet Paper Treats for Boooo

Ok so I have sports, Girl Scouts and three classrooms of kids to make treats for this year, over 100 lil treats to create! (Kind of scary!)

Keeping costs low is ideal when it comes to this time of year. Ok so I nabbed a large bag of tootsie roll miniature pops, a roll of Charmin toilet paper, Googlies (Adhesive backed Googlies eyes from the Holiday Mini), a sharpie in black, adhesive backed Rhinestones and white ribbon.

Two squares of TP cover the pop and hide the color (you get what you get and you don't throw a fit, a moms mantra!) tie the ribbon around the stick of the pop. Apply the Googlies, and color the crystal rhinestone with the sharpie (creates an onyx look). Bam! Easy, low cost, cute and FUN!

I added a 3x3" tag of Whisper White that I wrote a lil tag for my son's football team. The Spider Web folder and Big Shot create a great texture and look! With the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive I applied the black and silver embossed Kiddodles spider that i punched w/the scallop punch and it is done! Easy peasy, lemon squeezey. It's sooo scary how cute it is! 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
