Created on the fly.  I had three or four cards in my head but with a weird weather day, many errands and work to be had, by the time I sat to create them they didn't come out to my liking.  Sooo.. we created this on the fly and LIVE!
With the Share What You Love Suite (these bundles and FREE bees end in May!) you can create a broad variety of styles and looks with coordinating products, all new, from the upcoming Stampin' Up! 3oth Anniversary catalog.
~  Create this funky cool background with our Sponge Daubers and the new In-Color (2 year limited edition color collections) Grapefruit Grove ink on the Whisper White card stock (3-3/4" x 5").  
~  Using the Pearlized Doilies in the Share What You Love, Gotta Have It All bundle, turn it to the blank, non-pearlized side and rub the surface with the new ink pad and Sponge Dauber.
~  Over Lap, cross over, lay and create layers and layers as you move it around the card stock.
~  Stamp the greeting from the Love What You Do stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
~  Tie on the colored doily with the white thread (the embellishment kit) and add this silver rose for a wow finish to the center (it fits perfectly!).
~  Add Clear Wink of Stella for a fun addition of subtle glitter.

Double the pleasure, double the fun.
I do TWO Lives each week - yes I do!  For my amazing stamping sisters (and brothers) I create with them FIRST in our Exclusive Getting Crafty Family Facebook Group.  This Mint To Be card was another nod the the vintage love with a simple but cool technique.  
Because I love my family... Creating TWICE Every Monday is double the fun!  Create a vintage card like this.
~  Emboss with the Lovely Floral deep impressions embossing folder (New and in the Gotta Have It All Suite) on Silver Foil Sheets.
~  Rub the surface with a Stampin' Sponge and either the Black Archival ink pad (Retiring) or a Stazon ink pad (coming back!).
~  Stamp the greeting from the Love What You Do stamp set.
~  Add these beautiful and coordinating Mint Macaron adhesive backed pearls to the front of the flower from the Artisan Pearls (in this suite!).
~ Layer over Basic Black card stock and then a Mint Macaron card stock base with Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive.

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
