This month at 3 Girl JAM, we are celebrating things and people we love. I am part of an online crafty group that I really love, and one of the gals I've met through that community is Kari Cosentino (Kari's Kids Blog). I knew, just knew, that she would ROCK a guest design spot at 3 Girl JAM, and I was so right. Check out this chick and her fabulous bag!
So here is a little bit about me.... I am a Physical Therapist Assistant, wife and Mom to 3 amazing kids aged 12, 9 and 6. My kids are really active, which leaves me little time to be creative. So when I get the chance to escape to a crop or a weekend retreat, I am all over it! I mostly do layouts, since scrap booking is my passion and I have so much to get done but every now and then I have the urge to break outside my comfort zone.
When I was asked to be a guest designer for 3 Girls JAM, I felt so honored.....and so scared! Not my normal area of creativity, but I have a TON of ribbon and always look for ways to incorporate it into my crafts. I made this project using a canvas bag from Michaels, paper from my favorite line from Echo Park called Be Mine. It seriously is my absolute favorite line and just about killed me to actually use it! Lol. The paper hearts are cut using Spellbinders Classic Heart dies and Fancy Pants Love line. The nylon butterflys are from my daughters stash (shhh, don't tell her I borrowed them!). The ribbon colors are 3 Girl JAM Coral Crush and Purple Passion. I used some distress inks on the hearts, some bling from Recollections. The bag came with a neon green handle, which didn't go with my love theme so I covered it with 3 Girls JAM ribbon, of course!
I had so much fun making this project and being a guest designer! Thanks for the challenge and bringing my creative side out for something I love.
So much fun and sparkles - perfectly describes Kari and her wonderful project, don't ya think? Special thanks to Kari for sharing with us her crafty self as today's 3 Girl JAM guest designer!
