Contact Me at with your name, number and the best time to call.. I will send YOU a hand-stamped gift with the New Occasions and Sale~A~Bration Mini Catalogs!
There are fun ways to play with your stamps when it comes to adding color.  Here these mums show two of the techniques.  Painting directly on the stamps with the Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers then 'huff' on it... (the secret is to start with the lightest color, like the Daffodil Delight in the center of the flower and branch out to darker colors).
If you want a stronger, sharper look... stamp the images with the Stazon Jet Black ink then color the stamped image with the Stampin' Write Markers.
Thanks for coming by today!  You Brighten my day when you come by.... please remember to share this card and me with your family and friends.  I try to post daily projects and tutorials.... so come and visit often.  Leave me a comment and let me know what YOU think and want to see!
This clean stamp set is a great way to send some love and Spring in the midst of the cold, snowy Winter!  My hubby did tell me that this was a little early for Spring - lol - but seeing friends and family's photos from back East has me creating bright flower projects and hitting the beach!  So as I send a dash of Spring to those back East in the midst of a cold Winter... I hope to be sending a few smiles, too!

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
