Tea Time Is a Timeless Treasure

Tea Time reminds me of moments with my Nanna. 
She was one of my closest friends and advisers growing up, always with a hot cup of tea in a pretty cup and time to talk and listen to one another...
So here is my nod to my Nanna,
who looks down on me from heaven, with this card.
Our Tea for Two Designer Series Paper (Spring Mini) is stunning, elegant, fun and vintage!  When I saw this strip on one of the pages I just KNEW I had to use these blue roses
(I try to grow them every year - sigh - to no avail.). 
With the 5/8" Vanilla Flower trim (Spring Mini) is feminine and elegant, you can modify the color with the simple use of our Stampin' Write Markers, ReInkers, and Stamp Pads ++. 
Tea Time Trinkets (Spring Mini) are soooo lovely! 
Add them to a card, project and you now you have a Gift Charm - a Gift on a Card!  I don't know any lady who wouldn't love these timeless treasures for a necklace, bracelet, to attaching it to a ribbon for a window hanging.

The Timeless Treasures stamp set is vintage and elegant.  This tea cup and sentiment fit perfectly with this paper.
The Flower Garden Folder almost looks exactly like the flowers in this Pitcher.  I used the Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo Stampin' Write Markers to color the raised image and make sure that it's layered directly under the flowers in the pitcher on the picture.
Tea for Two... me and you... this is all tied in together with the Crumb Cake card stock base, the raised blue flowers, the colored flower trim and the stunning
Tea for Two Designer Series Paper.
Add this Cup of Tea charm and it's just charming - lol.
Adore this paper with me... see how fun and easy it is to use!  (Come play with me!)
Corner Up to this card and style...
Pearls are a perfect way to add warmth and richness.
Our Basic Jewels Pearls are adhesive backed and with over 150 pearls on a sheet (Idea Book & Catalog) for under $5?!?!  Enjoy using them along with me!

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
