Purple Ribbon in honor of...

My Nanna taught me so much, how to be strong, wear a pretty lipstick, ALWAYS apply lotion, wear fun jewelry, jewel toned colors, cute heels, and to rock the purple... not only was it her FAVORITE color.. it was the color of royalty (she explained to me).

Today's LIVE was our Creative Fridays - where those watching make the decisions on how the project comes to life.  I am in awe of how pretty this card came out!

My Grandmother, as well as many of her sisters, were AMAZING women.  Strong, loving, fun, fierce, fabulous women of God.  They also suffered from Alzheimers and lost their lives to this horrible disease.  I lived it with my beloved Nanna, she often only recognized my Pappa and my babies.  She was the iron in my spine, the zeal for life taught to me.. oh how I miss her.  In honor of her and so many who battle this disease, those caring for their loved ones in this battle.. I pray for strength and peace. 
The Purple Ribbon stands for... 
Alzheimer's disease, lupus, animal abuse, Crohn's disease, cystic fibrosis, fibromyalgia, sarcoidosis awareness, thyroid cancer, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), and religious tolerance.

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
