Embracing the GOLD on this hand crafted art is such a fun contrast to the vintage pages of this 1950's book!
From Paper Manipulation - in this Folded Pages Book Art to the Gold Leafing and mixing of the media... I can't get over how fun this was!
Layers and layers of fun... 
~  Measuring the pages of your book, cutting this coordinating Designer Series Paper to fit.. I incorporated tearing and sponging even.
~  Die-Cutting the Gold Foil for a fun accent.
~  Paper Folding is so much fun and doesn't require adhesive to do.
~  Stamping in the Night of Navy ink on this stunning O' Holy Night Designer Series Paper such a perfect greeting.
~  Accent using the Gold Trim and Festive Pearls.

Spice It Up...
~  Using the Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and the Gilded Leafing Elements along with our Paper Pumpkin box and Stamping Sponge for an elegant gold leafing!

Elevating this project can be as many or as few layers that you may be interested in... I am addicted to this and plan to create a fun variety of them as gifts.
Vintage Books to pick... I featured the Santa Book in my next post but the pages were older, thin or softer? and rougher in edge.  I would recommend a firmer page with a clean edge.  I highlight this in the video tutorial above.

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
