Sunshine Door Hanger

I'm NOT a big Chocolate eater...
(I doooo like small amounts of Dark Chocolate, lol...)
When I doooo eat chocolate, I like that Reese's Peanut Butter Cups allow me to share them with a friend, my husband or kids...
(the peanut butter and chocolate combo does rock).
Inspired by this Chocolate and Peanut Butter treat
I created this fun Door Hanger!
(It's sweet, isn't it?!?!)
This Rich gift is fun and easy with the use of our Designer Rosette Bigz XL Die and Big Shot (Idea Book & Catalog).  This die Scored, Cut and Perforated 3 - 6" x 12" strips of Chocolate Chip card stock with this sharp edge (what does it remind you of - YES the PB Cup!).

HOT GLUE is the Key to adhering these edges together!  (Be careful, it's HOT - HOT - Hooooootttt!!  I burn myself EVERY time - ugh)
Our Floral Frames Framelits and Big Shot (Idea Book & Catalog)  Popped these pretty flowers out from the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper (a piece of Tangerine Tango patterned paper).

OK So I've created little monsters!
Myyyy kids believe that the moment mommy whips out the Iphone and Craft - THEYyyyyy are models - walking the runway. (lol)  Here is my youngest posing like a famous person with a 'necklace' that is jussssst her size - lol.
After connecting all Three Scored and folded Rosette's - attach something to the back to hold it down and together.  This was a scrap from my Pennant Die.
Shhhh - the Secret, too, is Flipping this over and
'Filling' the center from the front. 
When you have this much card stock fighting staying down - it helps to have a 'cone' to hold it together.
Adhering the flowers on the front and the 'Feel Goods' stamp set (Spring Mini) 'those who bring Sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves' fits PERFECTLY on this Daffodil Delight flower.  I love that our papers, inks and accessories are all dyed to match - it makes it easy to look amazing!  Simply Stamp your sentiment and then use the Big Shot to cut it out - no guess work and it is sure to WOW everyone!

Adhering a 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon in Daffodil Delight to the back (more Hot Glue, since it's out and is Super adhesive).  It is a fun and unique Door Hanger (ding dong ditch in a good way w/ this beauty) but my daughters nabbed it to hang in their room - they want a rainbow of them now - lol.

If you love chocolate or not, this rich gift is a blessing to ANYONE who receives it!  I love that our colors picked up perfectly and embraces the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups without too much orange/in your face.

This Extra-Large Rosette/Lolly is a sweet way to show someone they are special - or greet people at your front door!
Who would you gift this too?
Would it end up in YOUR home as you can't seem to part with it?!?! (My kids do this to me often!)
Have YOU played with our Amazing Big Shot and accessories?!?!  I would love to show it to you!  I know that Crafting will never be the same with it, it's bound to only be MORE fun!!

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
