What NOT to do in Crafting...

I have to say.. there are many things I can cringe at when it comes to what NOT to do in Crafting (and life!)
First of all, crafting is FUN - so don't stress it - it'll bless so breathe!
Clear your crafting area (if you can).. I find a cluttered area results in messy crafting, missing items.  A cluttered desk also is distracting.. 
you deserve a clean area!
It's OK to throw away... I was a paper and ribbon hoarder.  I came to realize that I'm never going to use all of my scraps, as in never ever lol.  I suggest making a collection, donating them to local schools, hospitals for children, churches, foster care programs (they have crafts for kids while waiting to meet parents), etc. andddd you will feel better about yourself when you bless someone else.
Mistakes are OK - it takes me tons of tries to create something I love - I give the not favored ones to children's hospitals, veterans, or if just horrible - the trash.  Art is an expression of you - sometimes it takes a bit to get it right.  I'm not perfect so neither is my crafting.
Use Quality Products!  I have been crafting my whole life and on a budget.. yet you get what you pay for.  So using quality stamp sets, crafting tools, adhesives, papers, inks, accessories to create top quality results.  I love Stampin' Up! for this very reason!

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
