Branch Out with Collage Curios

Dapple some light through the branches and
this is what I imagine...
Inspired by the Blue Challenge and
this dress from What Not To Wear
(a favorite show of mine)
I created THIS Card!
(What do YOU think?)

This lovely lady transformed herself with this lovely dress...
it reminds me that a Card can transform a day for those receiving it!
Collage Curios (Spring Mini) in Island Indigo and Pool Party is a STUNNING Stamp set! 
Pair it with this bold and lovely paper from the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper collection, the Little Leaves Sizzlits and Big Shot and the 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon in Black... and
BAM you get this lovely card! 

Our 1" Circle Punch fits the Collage Curios collection - perfectly - and the 1-1/2" Scallop Punch creates an ideal layer.  The Color Coach pairs up the Pool Party and the Island Indigo as Monochromatic sisters,
they look amazing together, don't they?!?!
The Little Leaves Sizzlits cut these sweet branches and the pattern on the Designer Series Paper - it was a bit of cutting - but the results... WOW!  Thinking of You is the perfect sentiment from the Tiny Tiny Wishes stamp set...
This Card transformed myyyyy day and
I'm sure it will to whomever I send it to.
Remember that it's a sure way to
brighten someones day - send them a card!!!!
Like that scene from 'Little Mermaid' as they coasted the boat under the branches of the trees, the light dappling in... I feel happy and calmed by this card.... even a little romanced - lol.
Let me know the last time Your day was
brightened by a card or situation..
Leave me a Comment, I may surprise YOU with a card!!
Take on the challenge - giving someone a card can take them out of their blues!!
Have YOU signed up for an Upcoming Class or
picked a date for your Private Class?? 
Do so and start a campaign to Brighten and Bless another person's day! 


  1. Another beauty. You are on a roll!

  2. I've been looking for something to do with my Collage Curios set. I just might have to try this. Glad you shared so many cards through the LNS Challenge this week. I've enjoyed them all.

  3. Very Nice! Thank you for playing with the LNS Challenge.


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
