Create a Decorated Table for the Holidays with this Designer Series Paper Table Scape

Do you look at the holidays and wonder HOW to make those you live with, host, love, even YOURSELF (yes - you are worth it!) feel special?  To feel the celebration of the season?  For me, it's in the little things... like decorations to the big things, like time together.  This week, with two beautiful collections of our Designer Series Paper, and a bit of love and joy for the season - adding in the house we love (you know the 'House Proud' line in the song from the '80's??).... Inspired by some of my favorite people on Instagram (like Hamilton House Designs here) I wanted to create a festive seasonal table scape to welcome our homegroup in with (I created extra for our family gathering due this week even).

~  Using 12" Designer Series Paper, cut one or two sheets (I'd recommend a more solid pattern?  Something that does NOT compete with the main sheet you use.)  Trim a 3" panel (you can see how to trim it up to 1-1/2" on each side).
~  Adhesive it to the side of the 12" sheet - with Stampin' Up! you have DOUBLE the options as the paper is designed to coordinate and are double sided!
~  I recommend that Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive as lining this up cannnn be a tad challenging!

Creating the Napkin Rings.... 
~  Using the Pretty Peacock cardstock and cutting, with our Paper Trimmer, 1-1/2"x8-1/2".
~  Using the side of the Bone Folder to soften the strips and 'curl' them easier.  
~  Adhesive, with the Stampin' Seal adhesive, one side and wrap around.
* I LOVE these with the paper napkins of our homegroup/bbq to the cloth napkins for the upcoming more formal gathering.

~  Spice it Up ~
~  Split the 3"x12" strip and frame the placemats on BOTH sides with the TWO different but coordinating patterns!
I LOVE how the table came out - AND when the MEN noticed?   Women, we notice these things and the ladies sure did appreciate it... but when the men commented that they liked/loved it and 'wow' was thrown around... what a JOY it was!!

BBQ food and a Bible Study to our upcoming family meal (and Mexican food!) - these are so easy to use and dress up every table!
I have a SECRET... it's easy to SAVE these!  Having grown up so poor, I can tend to want to reuse items and be frugal.  Owning THESE to top the table placemats and keep them for the Season or even LONGER... it's awesome!!

Clear placemats that can COVER the ones I create from our Designer Series Paper!!  I can NOT wait to create table scapes for Valentines to Easter and every birthday/holiday... SQUEEE!!

I love these pretty paper collections and how beautifully it came out.
Minutes to create... have fun with your spare paper and use up your paper each season - just dooooo ittttt!!  You and your loved ones are worth it!!
Our cloth napkins were in the wash but the girls had fun using paper napkins and laughed that it fit with our BBQ meat and potato bar!

What do YOU like about this table scape?  
I love a pretty table runner for each season...
Having grabbed the JOY letters from a friend, I didn't have wall space but here, adding it to the center of the table was a perfect fit!
I love adding a few glass spun, light up ornaments.

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
