Check Your BOX!

When you go to your mail box (virtual or in person) do you hope that there is a personal note?  Something FUN to look forward to?  I miss the days of opening the mail to see my Nanna's hand written letters.  She was just the best.. she would see me over the weekend and then two days later send me a note - just to tell me she loved me.  My Great Uncle Chalmer would send me letters and devotions... we corresponded for years and when he discovered the Internet, he used to email me... he was into his 90's!!
No matter the form of correspondence we all hope that there is something fun and possibly a gift in the mail.  Shoot, when I place an order... I still feel like it's Christmas and it's something Iiiii paid for!
Let meee send YOU something FUN!!  Join the Gettin' Crafty Stampin' Mailing List and I'll send you a fun Exclusive Gettin' Crafty Newsletter each month (FILLED with Bonus Tutorials and Projects), Exclusive Specials and Discounts, and more!!
Please send this to family and friends, Pin, Email, Facebook, Tweet me... let's invite our friends and family to Join the FUN, too!!
I don't receive the emails from my beloved Grandparents, Great Uncle or Dad any longer.. sometimes I think that the sweet smiles of my kiddos, a dewy flower in my garden, the butterflies that light upon our yard.. are little love letters they send to me from heaven. 
Take a moment and send someone some love.  A card in the mail will live a long life on my fridge or shelves... they mean so much!  I have boxes with letters sent to me my whole life.. you never know what it will mean to someone.

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
