Quick Love StampinUp Valentines Box for Conversation Hearts Paper Crafting Tutorial

A while back, friends Hannah and her mom, shared their journey with family members who God brought to them.  They have had pseudo sisters and now have a pseudo brother who is disabled.  Disabled children often out live their family and are often placed in institutions or group homes when they have no place to go.  I found a tug on my own heart, learning the impact of these adopted family members on every member of their family.   

What I found interesting, was the prick upon my own heart, that I believe the Lord placed.

The following week, our Pastor spoke of a need in a service we had in our own church, in a similar matter.  The Friends Ministry is amazing and run by two amazing people - Mark and Rissa.  My daughter and I, ending one service else where, joined immediately. 

I do not know where the Lord is taking us, in this journey, but He led us to the most amazing group of people and volunteers.  Our lives have been forever changed and blessed for it.  I was asked, why... why I serve in this ministry when we don't have a child afflicted with these limitations, asked by a man who had a grandchild who was.  I had to smile and simply share that it sure is funny how the Lord works.

Recently I gave a lesson to the Friends while Rissa and Mark had to miss a Sunday.  What a joy it was!  I spoke upon the Lord's Love for us and how, during Valentines, we can often see hearts all around.  I do hope that we all reflect on His love with every commercial and decorative heart we see as He called us to love others as we love ourselves... the greatest of the commandments is to love.

I wanted to create a sweet gift, one with a heart or two, a reflection upon His love.  One of the favorite, classic gifts we give during Valentines season is the traditional Branch's Conversation Hearts.  As a Words of Affirmation person, I sure do love the uplifting words pressed into every little heart. 
What a sweet and simple little 3D box... that delivers so much love!  I sure do love this Dandy Designs FREE Sale A Bration paper also!
~  Cut a piece of Basic White card stock at 4"x5", scoring along the 5" side at 2" and 3".
~  Impress upon these score lines with the Bone Folder for a firm closure.
~  Fresh Fressia 3-3/4"x1-3/4" and adhesive it to the front of the box.

~  The Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper at 3"x1-1/2" cut in half to 1-1/2" x 1-1/2".  THIS was to avoid waste.  With over 30 of these sweet boxes to create, waste is not an option (though this packet of paper has 48 beautiful double sided pages within it).
~  Punching the heart pack in the Basic White and Fresh Freesia paper and die-cutting the Love for You dies on the new and limited edition Boho Blue Mini Cut & Emboss Machine.
~  Adhesive with Stampin' Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.

Sweet and oh so easy... it's sure to bless, or so I hope.

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
