Smarty Pants!

WHO Wouldn't LOVE receiving a
Jean POCKET Money Card like this?
With a Punch and Paper Piercing YOU, too, can
create a 3D Jean card...
what would you put in the pocket?
I know that I'm never without a great pair of jeans... and when I find a hidden $5 or $20 bill in a pocket is like finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow -
the only highlight to doing laundry!! (lol)


Jeans are now a staple in most wardrobes...
Using the 2-1/2" Circle Punch and the
'Congratulations Smarty Pants stamp from the Sale~A~Bration Patterned Occasions FREE Stamp Set and the Decorative Label Punch... ties it all together...
like a well worn jean!

The Print Poetry Designer Sereis Paper Stack from the Spring Mini is just divine!  Loaded with many options - this is a great feel for a trendy, subtle pattern. 
(I'd sooo own a pair of jeans in this pattern,
wouldn't you?!?!)

Utilizing our Paper Piercing Packs from the
Idea Book and Mini's is great! 
See which one you can get for
FREE from the Sale~A~Bration mini!
Create a Faux stitching while perfectly spaced by using the layouts on your project.  Here I added a dash of bling with the Gold Dazzle Pen we offered in the Holiday Mini!  With the dash of Summer Starfruit in the Midnight Muse paisley paper lends towards to the gold pen for stitching.
The addition of the Basic Jewels in the Rhinestones is a fun way to button it up as the 'grommets' on the 'jeans'!
Using the excess strips of cut paper for the belt loops...
add fun with a ribbon or just as is!
HERE is a video on
How To create this fun money card!

it's fun to recreate them into a card! 
Using the Smarty Pants is a great way to tie it all together!

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
