Chevron Fun!

Patterns are ALL the Rage! 
The Chevron Pattern is one of the most popular! 
Here with the new Chevron Embossing Folder and Big Shot, the Chevron Patterned FREE Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper from the Sale~A~Bration mini - the theme mimics the pattern and the punched images mimic it's self - little Mini Me's! 

With the Petite Curly Label Punch (from the Spring Mini and Sale~A~Bration Mini) fits the new stamp sets - Pretty Petites (Sale~A~Bration mini) and Ciao, Baby! stamp set (Spring mini) and being that I'm married to an Italian man.. I grabbed the Ciao stamp for the center of this card.  Here Lucky Limeade stamped Ciao on Pink Pirouette card stock. 
Building up the same image but larger, the Curly Label punch punched out the Chevron Designer Series Paper and the Top Note Bigz die cut mimics the shape as the smaller punches with the Rich Razzleberry card stock. 

A Dash of Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon ties in a little more of the green with out overwhelming the card. 
The Big Shot easily embosses the Chevron Texture, laying it over the other pattern is a fun way to keep up the theme.  The Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive raises each layer and allows them to grab the textured and embossed papers.

Ciao is a Hello and Good-Bye in Italian. So add a dash of sparkle as you send some love with a Hello and Good-Bye in this ultimate in greeting card!  The Basic Jewels sheet of Rhinestones is ideal for this!
Have FUN wit the Die Cutting tools, Punches and stamps - it's great how they all tie in to one another and make creating stunning cards.  See how images mimic one another, from punches to papers, stamps and more... it's endless the fun one can have with paper crafting!

Thanks the the LNS (Late Night Stampers) Color Challenge this week..
it was a fun way to combo some colors outside of the Color Coach.  I may not be a lover of green girl but this color combo of Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette and Lucky Limeade sure made my day (and this fun card - lol). 
Thanks to the Chevron theme and curly label punches - this look is a fun way to mimic pattern, shape and style!  Mini Me - how easy to look so trendy!

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
