Thankful, Grateful, Blessed... Thank You Thursday

I am so grateful for my friend, rock, pusher, organizer, calmer downer, laughing with, sister of my heart - Tresa.  She works beside me as I do my business of crafting, designing, blogging, video taping, social media-ing.  She cleans up my messes, keeps me focused, not allowing me to freak out.  These past couple of days she's helped me to pull all of our soon-to-retire products and preparing for the new catalog (squee - it's so beautiful!).  So today we pulled this collection and my heart lurched at the thought that these beautiful Paisleys will be going away.. so of course I had to create it for today's Thank You Thursday holiday.  Join Us, meet and create along side of my Tresa and I at our many crafting and card making classes, in-person and on-line.

Layers of gratitude... I just love how this sweet and easy handmade card came out!  
~  With the Paisleys & Posies stamp set, stamp in *Peakaboo Peach ink pad the paisleys on the 2-1/2" x 5" Whisper White card stock.
~  Stamp the Night of Navy greeting and floral paisley image, creating a fun layer over the peach.
~  Flick the edges in the Night of Navy ink pad for an invisible layer.
~  Die-Cut with the coordinating *Paisley thinlits in the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine the Gold Foil**.
**TOOL TIP:  When Die-Cutting foils place a thin sheet of printer paper over the thinlits that rest on top of the Gold Foil Sheets.  Place the cover cutting sheet and die-cut.  The Printer paper will absorb most of any scratches off of the cutting sheet and help the Gold Foil to look shiny.  
~  Use the Big Shot Brush to brush the bits and pieces and die-cut piece out.
~  Adhere the foil pieces with Fine Tip Glue Pen to the card (see how I connected the stamped and die-cut image below).
~  Adhere the pieces together over the *Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (3-1/2" x 5-1/4") to the *Peakaboo Peach card stock.
Connect the love.. or the flowers in this case.  Isn't it just fun to see how a stamped image, the coordinating dies, and the die-cut image can all connect to create a seamless and easy but dynamic handmade card?!?!!
I am so thankful for this holiday.  I work to get caught up on my Thank You notes... it's hard to put into words, for me, how thankful I am to so many.

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
