Good morning.  It has been so cold where I live and snow is a normal appearance.  This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries and I hope this post makes you feel warm (instead of cold like the theme).  3 Girl JAM Ice Blue ribbon is great for this project and comes from one of my favorite bundles - at least its one of my favorite ones today.

This is the first month for my new calendar.  I decided I wanted the "Place in Time" collection from Graphic 45 the very first time I saw it.  This collection is gorgeous and Ice Blue ribbon is such a great match.  I also used the following supplies:

DCWV - Neutrals Matstack
Fancy Pants - My Family paper
Close to My Heart - Outdoor Denim ink
Want 2 Scrap - pearls
Prima - Say it in Crystals

Now if you head over to my blog, DJ's Sundries, you can see the second part of the calendar and a video that tells you all the details.

Thanks for stopping by.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.

Guest Designer- Julie Odil

Hi!  Rebecca checking in with all you jamming chicks! I'm happy to introduce you to one fabulous guest designer, Julie Odil .  She is reporting to us all the way from the great North COLD and has a great home decorating project to share with us.  Here's what she wanted you all to know:

I’m so excited to be the guest designer on the 3 Girl JAM blog today!  Thanks to Rebecca and Julie for inviting me.  I am thrilled!
I love the colors of the merlot and white ribbons together so much that it was “instant inspiration” when I took them out of the packages.  Both colors spoke “winter” to me.  So, that is the direction I went, creating a winter-themed banner, using 3 Girl JAM ribbon for embellishing.

You can find all the details on how I made the banner, including other supplies I used on my blog: 
So, hop on over there if you’re interested in creating one of your own!

 I want to share a close up of the snowman.  I used watercolor paints, and some watercolor paper given to me by my friend, Rebecca, to create the focal point of the banner.
There you have it. I hope you enjoyed my wintery project! Even though it’s super chilly outside, I hope it will inspire you to make one of your own. 

Again, I’ve so enjoyed being a guest designer for 3 Girl JAM. 
Have a WINTERFUL day!

Happy Valentine's Day

3 Girl JAMmers

Today is my 
Design Team Day 
to share another project 
with you
that I made
using the fantastic 
at 3 Girl JAM

The bow was made using the always fabulous, forever beautiful, and trusty 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon.  Using several wraps around the Bow Maker (pegs in slots 2 and 4), I created this delightful and full bow with the Holly Berry Ribbon (from the Winter Bundle).

There is no way to go wrong with the Ribbon and Bow MakerIt truly takes all the effort and guess work out of the equation for you.  

I do have to say, this is one of the first CAS cards I have made in a while that I am truly pleased with its simplicity. Kraft card stock base (cut down to 5.5" x 5.75"), a paper doily (half cut), Holly Berry Ribbon and Bow, and a sentiment from the set called  With Love by Stephanie of Whimsical Designs.

Stop over to the 3 Girl JAM Store
to stock upon some Scrumptious Crinkle Ribbon and a New Bow Maker so you can see for yourself, how easy and wonderful it is to make these delightful bows.

DON'T FORGET...You can Make a Party Related Project, use some Ribbon, and LINK UP

You're the One that I Want

Hello all, Jovan here today!  Happy Monday!  
I'm here today with a simple Valentine card.  The new LOVE flair buttons are so great for quick cards.  I made a rosette with my Martha Steward score board and added the button.  How easy is that?!  
I just LOVE the new flair buttons!  I hope you enjoyed my card and go check out all the flair buttons in the store.

Treats That'll Make Your Heart Flutter

Good Morning Everyone!  Rebecca reporting in to show you what I've been up to when I've had a little  down time.

This morning I'm here to get your creative juices going!  It's really getting chilly over here in the North East and a good workout is just what's needed.

A crafty workout, that is.

SOOOOoooOOOO - Let me start with a confession...


And..I need every excuse I can think of to justify buying bags of delicious pink, red, and white package confections.

And I package it up to tempt EVERYONE around me.

Whatcha Think? Good Plan?

I used several a couple different crinkle ribbons on these treats.

ICE BLUE from the Hot and Cold Bundle
GOBLIN GREEN from the Spooky Bundle
BABY BOY from the Baby Bundle

Hope I tempted you into making one for yourself (and then opening it up and EATING it!)


Have a great day!

Guest Designer-Joan aka Sassy Olk

Hey everyone, Abby here today!  This 3GJ post is an extra special one for me as I get to introduce our Guest Designer for this week..Joan aka Sassy Olk.

Sassy and I met close to two years ago when we became DT sisters. She is an amazing person & is so very creative (as you will see with her FAB project below) and I am truly proud to say that she is not just an online crafty acquaintance but she is my FRIEND. Her personality lives up to her name and I wouldn't have her any other way.  Please help me give a warm 3GJ welcome to Miss Joan aka Sassy Olk with Sassy Moments

It's me, Sassy!  Born and raised in the Land of 10,000 Lakes I am all Minnesotan.  I love the change of seasons, sitting by a lake, fishing from a dock, and listening to the call of the loons.  Married to Jason, we are the parents to one, spoiled, four-legged, furry peke-a-poo, Sassy.  The name stuck with me after bringing her home.  In addition, I am the proud Mom to two successful adult children that make me extremely proud.

My crafting style is anything but clean and simple.  I like to adapt to the challenge and try my hand at all styles.  I guess that makes me eclectic!

The messier the technique the more I seem to love it.  I like getting my hands into creating, feeling the different textures, applying glue, gesso, fiber paste, paint, Mod Podge, etc.  You get the idea.  Very seldom do I mess with using a paintbrush or other applicators.  Easily my favorite technique is learning a new one.  Taking a class, watching YouTube videos, subbing to online classes and blog following all play a major part in my life of learning.

I feel very fortunate as this week's 3 Girl JAM Guest Designer.  Thank you.

Jar of Hearts 
I wanted to highlight the gorgeous texture of the 3 Girl JAM ribbon and decided to crochet hearts as embellies.  I love the end result and the ribbon color is beautiful.  How perfect to embellish your Valentine's Day project for that special someone!
For my project I began with a plain ball jar and lid.  Using Mod Podge I adhered the bright pink tissue paper.  Off-white burlap was wrapped around the jar and on the front side only threaded Cherry Lipstick wrinkly ribbon under and over.  With the ribbon on the top I used a Sharpie marker to be sure all the loops were the same size.  The four hearts were all crocheted using different size hooks (L, J, I, H) and hung showing on some the front-side or the back-side.  I love the effect of both end results.  With the remaining ribbon I wound it around the lid and embellished it with a light-pink bling.
Ribbon colors from 3 Girl JAM - Antique White, Baby Pink, Cherry Lipstick
I hope you like my Jar of Hearts and are inspired to give crochet a try!

Well...... it's a great Thursday here at 3 Girl JAM!  Scrappin Madge here from Madge's Scrappin Lounge and today I am super excited to show to you my fun project.  Who has papers everywhere and the regular old clothes pins just aren't doing the trick holding up all of the papers??? Boy do I have a solution for you.  Go check out your local dollar store and see if they sell RAT.... yes I said RAT.... traps... Not MOUSE.... RAT!! LOL check out my project and see what I made with a fun Rat trap.

I used the Caribbean Splash crinkle ribbon.  Isn't this the cutest thing EVER????
Here are two more pics that are close up.

I painted the Rat trap, used some fun pattern paper from My Mind's Eye, Pink Paislee embellishments
American Crafts pin wheels, party straws, American Crafts thickers, Two heart straight pins, brown distress ink, Hot glue and mod podge.
 CAUTION****** Do NOT try this without supervision!!! I am serious, this could take off your finger if you are not careful so please be careful.

I am going to use the clip that Sn@ps shut when you catch your rat.  This part will hold my papers perfectly.  Don't you just love the fun color of Crinkle Ribbon????  Coral Crush!!! One of my new favorites!!!

Be sure to leave some bloggie love, oh yes and if you haven't ordered your 3 Girl JAM products be sure to visit the shop {HERE}

Guest Designer - Teresa Kaufhold: Create, Enjoy, Share

Hello 3 Girl jAMmers, Jessica B here today to introduce you all to our lovely Guest Designer this week.

It is with great honor and privilege that I get to WELCOME my Sweet Friend, Teresa.  Teresa and I connected online earlier last year during another DT term.  I am so happy that friendship has blossomed over this time and am blessed to call her my Friend!

Please join us in Welcoming Teresa

Hello Crafty Friends!
I'm Teresa from www.createenjoyshare.blogspot.com
I am over the moon excited to have this opportunity to be a Guest Designer here at the 3 Girl JAM Blog today!

I have been a scrapbooker for a long time, in one form or another! I've dabbled in many types of crafts over the years, but paper crafting has always been what I've returned to.   I was first introduced to the wonderful 3 Girl Jam products when I found out that Jessica was on their design team! I participated in a blog hop and won some wonderful crinkle ribbon for blog hop candy! Jessica told me how wonderful the 3 Girl Jam Bow Maker was - so I could not wait to get my hands on that!

I've been a bit out of my "crafty game" due to foot surgery at the end of December. I am moving around a bit more and was excited to get back in the craft room and create a project to share with you today!

The theme of the current 3 Girl JAM Challenge is "It's A Party" and I was excited to make a card that could be used for a variety of celebrations but most likely a birthday.

I recently received a Silhouette Cameo and I am finally getting the chance to experiment with it! I cut the birthday candles file that I purchased from the Silhouette America store. Layered it up on several layers of cardstock to give this project a lot of dimension and used some Crystal Lacquer on the flames of the candles.
I decided to tie my cute candles all together with some ribbon. With the AMAZING 3 Girl Jam Bow Maker, even I can make cute little bows! This product is amazing and could not be easier to use! I used some Antique White Crinkle Ribbon from 3 Girl Jam and then added the most precious little stick pin from the Pinque Peacock to top it all off!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Be Early Be Late Time Tag

Hi Friends...I haven't posted on here since Christmas so I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season & a Happy New Year : )  

Today I am excited to share a tag I made using not one but two of the wonderful crafty items from 3 Girl Jam.

Love how the rich colors from the Mistletoe (from the Winter Bundle) and Coral Crush (from the Caribbean Splash Bundle) work so well with the papers from Echo Park. The canvas border strip that you see is also from 3GJ.

This was a fun tag to design and put together...and it goes to show you that you can mix and match the crinkle ribbon from other bundles to come up with a FAB look for your project. I love how the ribbons from the Winter & Caribbean bundles work so well together. 

For more photos and a detailed list of all the products I used on this tag....please stop by my blog..ScrappinAbby.

Happy Craftin!!

Crinkle Ribbon-Mistletoe (Winter Bundle) and Coral Crush (Caribbean Splash Bundle)

My project for today would make adorable party favors for any scrappy party but since there are not many scrappy get-togethers around here I made these for a couple friends.

Happy Crafting!!

Sympathy Card

Hello again everyone.  This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries.  I normally try to have a happy, upbeat project to share, but there's more to life than happiness.  There are sad times too.  One of the things I hope that I can always do with my cards is to bless someone else.  This card was designed for that reason.

I love the simple elegance of black and cream.  Antique White 3 Girl JAM ribbon adds that final perfect.  I decided not to add anything to the front of the card except paper and ribbon and to just keep it simple.  I also used:

DCWV - La Creme Matstack
Archival ink - Jet Black
ATG adhesive
Black cardstock base from my stash
K. Andrew Designs - "Sympathetic Sayings" stamp set

That's it.  Super simple!  The sentiment is tucked into the inside of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Please head over to DJ's Sundries for the dimensions of the papers.  There's also a video posted.  Have a great day and remember to enjoy the little things today.

Guest Designer: Docerela Creations

This is Carri from DoubleClick and I am super excited to have one of my best blogging buddies be a Guest designer at 3 Girl Jam! Catarina and I have become such good friends, I am blessed to have her in my life!
Hi everyone this is Catarina over at Docerela Creations. I want to thank Julie for having me as a guest designer today. 
Carri and I have been blogger friends for over 1 year now. When I first started my blog she was one of the first person to comment on my posts. It was with her that I was given the chance to get to know the blog world a little more. In 2010 I started my stamp line and of course I wanted her on my team. She was always great inspirations to me.  So it didn't take much longer until we become close friends. There is one thing that I can tell you, I can't go on more than 1 day without texting Carri, she has become like a BIG sister.  Thank you Carri for being such a great friend. 
Now onto our post: Here's why I love using 3GJ crinkle ribbon. Not only I use their ribbon for many crafty ideas: like cards and layouts but I used others things too. 

Wedding decor
Dessert tables: 


and of course cards: 

I hope that you enjoyed my post today. Please feel free to come and visit my blog.

Elegant Florals with Jessica B

3 Girl JAMmers

Jessica B here with you today for my Design Team Day.  I love that I get to share another project with you that I made using the fantastic products available at 3 Girl JAM.

There are so many  wonderful reasons why I LOVE the 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon.
It is awesome to work with.  Not only  does it make a perfect accent on your cards and layouts when you tie it into a bow, use it across the edges, or pleat it to make a border, but I have to say, my favorite thing to create with Crinkle Ribbon is Elegant Florals!

Recently, I had a prize winner who stated her favorite color is ORANGE.  So her entire prize was made with that in mind:

including this Orange-a-liscious Loop de Loop
Made with Harvest Orange and Antique White Crinkle Ribbon

You may recall seeing a few other projects in the past over at Jessica's Craft Shaque
that included these gorgeous blossoms!

Here's a quick recap to inspire you and hopefully invigorate your senses!
I will share the name of each Elegant Floral Style (EF) above each of the project pictures

Loop de Loop

 Mini Bow

Sweet Swirl

Pleated  Petals EF

Wise Whispers

Stop over to the 3 Girl JAM Store
to stock up on some Scrumptious Crinkle Ribbon to try this technique yourself!
