Floral District is Framed!

I grew up LOVING court shows and murder mysteries...
my dad was addicted and often watched them with me...
I LOVED when I they revealed who was FRAMED (dum, dum, dummmmm). 
HERE I am able to Frame something... well, OK so it's the Floral District Paper, Rich Razzleberry Card stock and the Floral Frames Framelits do all the framing... lol.. with the accomplice of the Big Shot (dum, dum, dummmmm)
ha, ha, ha!

One of my Daisy Girl Scouts, Jessica, had her 7th birthday today and it happened to land on our meeting date!  We hiked the girls over for some ice cream while we looked to see how the animals take care of themselves. 
I created this fun lil card and coordinating gift bag for her little gift.
Using Baja Breeze for the cardstock base (the colors for the Designer Series Papers are listed in the Idea Book and Mini's under the item number, how easy is that?!?!).  Using the Floral Frames Framelits and Big Shot I cut out these layering flowers twice - on the DSP and the Rich Razzleberry Cardstock.
Alternating the pattern and colored cardstock is a fun way to enjoy this layered flowers!  With SNAIL Adhesive I did a large X and then applied the cardstock and DSP alternating.  The Largest flower is too big for the card so I left it off.  Before adhering the center down I punched a small hole and used the whiter Antique Brad - it has a floral pattern while the white picks up the DSP.  Using Mini Glue Dots I adhered this down - the back of the brad hidden and the strength of the glue dots holding such a heavy embellishment down.
This sweet girl is so full of life - I couldn't resist adding a fun looking sentiment.  The Wacky Wishes Hostess stamp set from the Idea Book is PERFECT!  The Rich Razzleberry ink pops on the Baja Breeze cardstock, too!
Sweeten this up with the Basic Jewels Pearls in the greeting, it adds a richness and sweetness to a fun sentiment.

Using a Mini White Lunch bag for her gift bag (we gave her a canned criter) and the remaing punched out flowers I SNAILed it down and now it coordinates!  Easy Peasy (lemon squeezy) and CUTE to Boot!

Don't you love when it's easy to create a gift bag that coordinates with a card?  When a lovely card (and bag) are easy to create with stunning papers?
(Me, too!)

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
