A can of snowflakes and sparkles

These cute little clear paint cans were impossible to pass up in the dollar isle at Target. I mean, seriously!?!? Howww cute!

My craftin' fingers and brain started to itch. There are soooo many things I can do with a can like this!! This was my first of the cans that I did.

Using our Silver Glimmer Paper I created a banner to frame the snowflakes from the Bigz Die Snow Flurry from our Holiday Mini. Using the Square Lattice Folder on the Whisper White cut out snowflakes adds dimension. Snowflakes have layers and various textures when you look under a microscope, I'd hoped that adding this unique texture would achieve that.

Using Mini Glue dots apply them in random spots, falling off, etc. turn the paper over and trim off any excess with your Snips. Applying the Basic Jewels, adhesive backed jewels to the center of the snowflakes. The largest on the largest. The medium on the smaller snowflakes.

Rolling the paper up, pop it inside and then push into the seams inside. I'm debating what to fill it with... Suggestions?

Thanks for looking! What would you do with a clear paint can?? Who would you gift it too?? Please leave a comment, feel free to share this with others! Have a snowflake and sparkle filled day!!


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
