Love! {my 3 Girl JAM!}

It's Thursday, and today it is Julie O from Muddy Paws and Inky Fingers.  I love my days to post here and design with 3 Girl JAM products!  Today, I have a card to share with you.


I used 2 different 3 Girl JAM ribbon products on this card. There's Pretty Pink Flower Diecut Ribbon and crinkle ribbon from the Ribbon Candy Bundle
I used an Art by Miran image on this card.  It is part of a progressive challenge.  I got this first image at a discount.  I'll enter it this month, and get next month's free.  What a great way to get a collection of wonderful digis from an artist I admire!
I colored this image with Copic markers.  I used several Spellbinders dies to cut it out.  All the papers are from Close To My Heart. 
The 3 Girl JAM Anything Goes Challenge is almost over, so get your entries in quick!

Valentine's Treat Bags

Hi Friends! Abby here with ScrappinAbby and today I have a super cute Valentine's project to share with all of you using some of the FAB Crinkle Ribbon and Lace from 3GJ. 

I made some fun treat sacks using some glassine bags and pulled from a few different crinkle ribbon bundles and some distress lace.


I also have a short video that shows you the project up close along with the 3GJ goodies I used....

Now for some additional pics....


These are such a quick and easy project to make that would be perfect to tuck a gift card or some sweet treats in for your sweetheart or just some close friends. Plus they're adorable (I think so anyway..lol).

Be sure to stop by the 3 Girl JAM Store and pick up some of the fabulous Crinkle Ribbons and laces for your Valentine's projects. Also, use Discount Code: AH10 to get 10% off of your total order. 

Thanks for stopping by the 3GJ blog today and for checking out another ScrappinAbby project. 

Happy Craftin!!!

Light and bright lace


I have 2 cards to share with you today showing off the gorgeous dyed lace.
 In this card it's more subtle, I used it as a background to add some texture.


This card It's the focal point.  I used glue dots to adhere the lace to the card then tied a bow and added it to the top.  This way the lace on the card stays flat.

 I used the wider piece as my border strip to peak on the front.
I love the look of this, perfection.

More Manly Valentine



Just look what Jute Ribbon from 3 Girl JAM can do for your valentine for your man.  It puts a rough texture onto your card..while still keeping your style sweet and lovely!  


The Merlot colored Jute Ribbon works well with my choice of patterned papers.  
In fact, the papers day it all!


I added silver cord to my button. 
But the ends are tucked in back and held down with a Craft Glue Dot.  This keeps my layout looking stream lined and clean.

Thanks so much for joining us today!
What manly valentine projects do you have up your sleeve?
We'd love to hear!!

Ribbon Candy Valentine Treats

Welcome Back Crafty Friends,

This is Georgiana from Carson's Creations and today is my day to post.

Valentine's Day is approaching quickly and since time just flies by I wanted to start thinking about my students rather than procrastinate (I have the tendency to do that!). I have 24 students, so I want to be able to make something quick and easy but still be cutesy. I think I found the perfect treat! You will have to tell me what YOU think.  

Here is my Design Team project...
I found this lollipop cover from My Scrap Chick that the students should enjoy.

Red Ribbon Candy crinkle ribbon from the 3 Girl JAM shop. I added a heart button and cream craft thread.

One wasn't enough, so I made another. This file is definitely easy and making 22 more will be a breeze!

I used Cherry Tootsie Pops to keep with the Valentine color scheme.

This stamped sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Valentine Treats stamp set.
Other Materials:
pattern papers from scrap box
cream card stock
pink ink

We hope you will join our 3 Girl JAM Monthly Challenge. The theme is "Anything Goes with Ribbon". There is still plenty of time to participate. Start creating a new project and share today!

Anything Goes with Ribbon
January 3rd - January 30th
Prize ~ $15 gift certificate to 3 Girl JAM shop
 
Stay Creative,
Georgiana

Wonderful Friend Quilled Card

Hello my crafty friends!!
It's me, Connie with Connie Can Crop!
 
 

Today is my first post with 3 Girl Jam and I am so excited to be able to share my project featuring the yummy 3 Girl Jam products I love!

 I have had this quilling kit for some time now and thought it was time to bust it out and create my first quilled card ever. I knew 3 Girl Jam would compliment this card beautifully and I was right! 


I added some Jute Ribbon in Sunflower and Natural along the bottom to accent the banner. And added a big bow created with my 3GJ bow maker and Sunflower Crinkle Ribbon from the Harvest Bundle just below the window. The quilled flowers peek right through the window and add lots of dimension to this card. 

 

Other Items Used:

Cardstock
 
Pop Dots

Gold Pearls
 
Be sure to stop on by my blog for more photos of this project and others featuring 3GJ products


I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

Hello my crafty friends! My name is Connie Wallenbrock. I am also known in the craft world as Connie Can Crop. I am super happy to be a new member of the 3 Girl Jam DT. I have been crafting my entire life, it helps when you a very crafty mom (thanks mom!). I have been a scrapbooker for the past 18 years. I love creating mixed media, altering projects, and making cards, but scrapbooking is my true passion. Creating gorgeous layouts that my future generations can cherish is so special to me.
I am lucky enough to have my hubby of 17 years support me in my hobby and my teenage boys (13 and 16), well, they think it's pretty cool too. (Especially when I make things for their girlfriends.)
Like most scrapbookers I started scrapbooking when I attended a Creative Memories home party. It was love at first class! It didn't take long though, for my creativity to extend beyond what CM could offer. Now I have my very own blog, Connie Can Crop, several die cutting machines, tons of fun embellishments (including ribbon!!) and the sky is the limit. I love to create cute things and inspire others while I do. Can't wait to get to know you all!! Scrappy hugs!!

Hi! My name is Leslie, I'm married with two grown children and one granddaughter, and I live in north Florida. I began scrapbooking about 40 years ago, way back when scrapbooks were really bland - before all the fun papers and embellishments came about. For the last 20 years or so, my paper passion has been card making. I started out making computer-generated cards, graduated to card kits, then quickly realized that having my own stash of stuff was the way to go! The rest is history, as they say! I'm addicted to rubber stamping and also enjoy making 3-D paper projects, especially paper shoes and mini albums, and have been known to alter a few tins and boxes. Thanks to my sister, I also started beading and making jewelry about a year or so ago. I started blogging and entering challenges several years ago, and started my own challenge blog in early 2013. A huge thanks to Julie for inviting me to join the 3 Girl JAM design team! I'm so looking forward to crafting with this talented group of ladies!

My name is Dawn Mercedes...and I am a designer who enjoys juggling a number of activities. Whether it is creating a card or object for home decor, whipping up a batch of fresh cookies for kids that drift through the house, swimming throughout the week, or learning new chords on the ukelele, I'm your go-to crafter for help, ideas, and encouragement. Who says you (or your style) have to grow old and moldy? My up beat style and silly comments will keep you smiling and chuckling. I'm so honored and excited to be working with the products and designers of 3 Girl JAM!!

Hi! I'm Raechelle (pronounced Rachel). I have been scrapping for about 13 years and like to create a variety of papercrafting projects and on occasion will work on some mixed media projects. I have stepped out of my creative comfort zone recently and begun to use my sewing machine on fabric projects (imagine that!) and am going to keep stretching that creative side of me. I am blessed to have a hard-working and supportive husband who encourages me to be creative. We have a blended family of six children, five girls and one boy. Five of the six have flown the nest and are busy building lives and families of their own. I am a proud Navy mom; two of our daughters are currently serving and our oldest daughter is a Navy Veteran and attending school full time. I am a brand new grammy and blessed to be able to take care of my precious granddaughter while her mommy continues her education. I homeschool our youngest daughter, who is 15, and is the strongest young lady I know. She suffers from Crohn's disease, arthritis and Scoliosis and "eats" medical formula via a g-tube. She has had some rough years under her belt, but her spirit is full of sunshine and joy. We recently relocated to Rosenberg, TX from WA state which has helped her health immensely. In my free time I enjoy reading, playing games and spending time with my family. I am thrilled to be a part of the 3 Girl Jam team and look forward to this new adventure!

Welcome to the TEAM!!
Looking forward to a great 2015!

My name is Julie Odil, and I am thrilled to be a part of the 3 Girl JAM design team.  I’m one of the “old” ones on this team — in more ways than one!  I am such a fan of all the 3 Girl JAM products, and there is no better person to work for than JulieK.  I am very pleased to be back for another term.
I’ve always been creative – I play many instruments, like to write, and have been crafty my whole life.  I began scrapbooking about 8 years ago and cardmaking about 5 years ago, but things really took off when I began my blog almost 3 years ago.  It was a life changing experience.  I can’t believe how much fun I’ve had and how many friends I’ve made through my blog.

I'm very excited to remain on the 3 Girl JAM team.  I love, love the products, and I'm excited to be able to showcase them.  I've been paper-crafting for a little more than 21 years.  I started with scrapbooking when my oldest son was born.  He's almost 22 now, so it's been a long time.  I scrap, make cards, and do some home decor.  I'm a second-time-around happily married woman.  My husband and I have four sons between us.  His are twins and mine are about 15 months apart, so all four boys are 20 and 21 currently.  I manage Arts departments at a local university.  Lots of boy in my home and lots of stress in my job.  Paper-crafting is my release, and I can't imagine life without it.

Hi everyone, I'm Abby aka ScrappinAbby and I live in the beautiful green state of Oregon. I'm happily married to someone who I can truly say is my best friend, Steve. He is also my Number One Fan as he does nothing but support me in my crafting. I'm a proud mom to two wonderful kids, Tre' who is 19 and Kaley is who is 15. I'm also the proud owner of a very spoiled mini Dachshund, Bella. I am a lover of paper, canvas and all things crafty & I am obsessed with the color purple. I've always been a crafter but I started scrapbooking 19 years ago when I had my son and it has grown into a full blown obsession for me and I haven't looked back since. I love making albums (mini etc.), board books, cards, LO's, altered items and pretty much anything I can scrap up! I love crafting & the friendships that are created from this wonderful world of paper, stamps & inks. I craft every single day...it's my therapy for sure and I love nothing more than being surrounded & inspired by all the wonderful scrappy items in my craft room and getting inky! You can follow along on my crafty journey

I am a SAH mom to a beautiful and busy 5 year old.  I have been crafting all my life, I found stamps about 20 years ago and was hooked immediately.  I discovered paper piecing about 4 years ago and really fell in love.  I rarely use my stamps but still collect them.  I do all kinds of crafts, I call myself ADD when it comes to crafting, I usually have 3 or more things going at once.  My mental list of things I want to try is longer than I can remember or ever complete but I never have to worry about being bored. My husband is retired law enforcement so since he's home all the time, I can almost craft when ever I want to.  My daughter loves to craft too so that helps, I give her supplies and she works along side of me doing her own projects.

Welcome back to the team Ladies!!

Stop back tomorrow to meet the Newbies!
