Comfort Cafe in Blue

Badge of Honor?
When a little girl on my daughter's Softball Team took a ball to the face - the crack of the contact was audible to the families in the stands - the blood...
let's just say it was unnerving.
(Cringe with me, but know that she's a brave and sweet girl and
that there was NO permanant damage to her pretty face!)
As Parker said she never wanted to play again -
I explained that she will have the Badge of Honor!
Now, to create an actual badge... lol...
I'm just glad that I love craftin'!

Parker told me that her favorite colors are blues and turqoise.  I created this 'badge' with the Comfort Cafe material and Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon. 
The Antique Brad center and has the feel of
vintage as does the pattern on this material.

Attaching a Pin to the back allows her to use it as a bow attachment or on her outfit as a badge - lol...
Using Midnight Muse cardstock for the base, I nabbed the coordinating Comfort Cafe Papers and cut them - flipping one over.  The patterns don't match but the trendy and fun thing is that they are color coordinated and go together.
Attaching, losely, the Pool Party ribbon to the card allows me to pin and hold the ribbon 'badge' to the front of the card - but it is cute even when you take the badge off!

She is a brave little Rock Star and deserves a little Glimmer for actually coming back to practice with gusto! 
A great example to her teammates, too! 
Using my Big Shot and the Alphabet Bigz Dies with the
Silver Glimmer Paper is a fun way to add some personalization to the card.

Who would YOU give a Badge of Honor to?
Personalized gift and card??
I LOVE that the Papers and Material coordiante and
make it a breeze to match and look amazing!

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
