Wedding Dress Inspirations

Shhh - I have a secret addiction...
I blame my kids but, seriously, it's all me!
As my Oldest is in a serious relationship... I use this as an excuse for my watching all the wedding shows on TLC...
THIS card was inspired by Brenda Novak (a favorite author of mine) and our recent discussion of weddings...
Inspired by this sweet Scrapbook Page from a Pinterest Pin, this card came to life....

Using our English Ivy Simple Sentiments (Catalog #127538) and our All Dressed Up Framelits Dies (Spring Mini #131095) with my Big Shot (Catalog #113439) and cutting these dresses out with the lace pattern across the bust. 
SUCH a lovely dress, isn't it?!?!
With our Artisan Embellishment Kit (Spring Mini #129328) this stunning lace is ideal for this project!  Cut in 1/2 with our Paper Snips (Catalog #103579) is a great way to stretch the ribbon and not overwhelm the card.
With Delightful Dozen (Catalog #122650) greetings set this Congratulations celebrates the special moment.  Embossed with our White Embossing Powder (#109132) and my quiet Heat Tool (#129053).  Framing it with our adhesive backed Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247) and along the bust of the dress adds a little luster.
Using our Brushed Gold  (#102935) card stock run through my Big Shot and the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#127819) for a luxurious frame.
Layering these 1-1/2" squares of lacy embossed Brushed Gold card stock along a 2" strip of Very Vanilla (#101650) card stock.  The Crumb Cake (#120953) card stock base is warm and neutral while elegant and trendy!
This is a sweet card that any bride would love to receive!  Now, if only I knew TRIPLETS that were getting married at the same time, it'd be extra special... hmmmm... lol...

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
