Outdoorsman Ornament with 3 Girl JAM!

Hi Friends! Abby here with ScrappinAbby and today I have a holiday project to share with all of you. Each year we have a family tradition of selecting or making an ornament for each other. So this year I again made ornaments for my hubby, daughter and son. This project is the one I made for Steve (my hubby). He is a total outdoorsman and love to hunt and fish. So I made him an antler ornament for our 2014 Family Christmas tree.

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

Here are the ribbons & trims I used...
New Holiday Trim-Gold Cording 
Hot & Cold Bundle-Hot Chocolate


I love how this masculine project turned out and I can't wait to show it to my hubby. The Gold Cording and Hot Chocolate go so well with the outdoors theme I was going for. 

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

I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Crafting!!!

Santa Claus Pillow Box

Hello, Nicole here today with a quick Christmas box to share that is the perfect size to house a gift card or small treat.  I am giving my nephews gift cards this Christmas and this will go to one of them.


I tied a length of "Holly Berry" crinkle ribbon from the 3 Girl JAM Winter Bundle around the middle of my box.  I created a triple bow using my 3 Girl JAM Bow Maker and then hot glued the cute Santa Claus flair from the 3 Girl JAM "Christmas" flair collection to the center of my bow.  Finally I hot glued my bow and flair to the middle of the ribbon that was wrapped around the box - Voila!!  a cute box to hide a gift card.  Thanks for stopping by today!!  Feel free to visit my blog.

Don't forget the 3 Girl JAM Design Team call is going on right now.  For more information please go HERE. Also, don't forget about our current challenge for the month of December - "gratitude/thankful".  You can find out more as well as link up your projects here.

Sometimes You Need a Friend

Karen N here from Craftily Yours.  Today, I am sharing some special cards that are going to "near-strangers" who helped my family recently.  To read the special, somewhat sad and feel good gratitude story, be sure to check out my personal blog post.

Both of these cards feature the incredibly beautiful 3 Girl JAM Simply White Lace.  This lace is currently one of my favorite pretty embellies to add to a card.  This first version also includes 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon in Daffodil.


On the second card, I also used the super fun 3 Girl JAM Diagonal Stripe Ribbon in Bright Blue.


The stamp is a Phyllis Harris image from Unity Stamp Company.  The paper on the first card is Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower, and on the second card, it's Basic Grey Clippings.  The images are colored with Tim Holtz distress markers.

If you are running low on 3 Girl JAM supplies, please use code KN10 to get a cool 10% off your entire purchase.

AND please enter the 3 Girl JAM December Challenge.  It's all about gratitude.  (Time to get those Christmas Thank You cards started, yes?)

Craftily yours,

Karen
