i like you a LOT

I'm writing this post today and there is a whopping 3" of snow on the ground at my house! 
{It's Wednesday now, but by the time this post is live it is supposed to be 50 degrees!}
That's a very big deal for Eastern, NC…tired of hearing about snow?  Me too…
So, I thought I'd bring you some warm florals accented with some fabulous 3 Girl JAM elements today instead of snowmen or icicles!
I think you'll be pleased to know that you can grab some flair like the chevron piece I used as my floral center AND the crinkle ribbon you see tied up in a double bow at 3GirlJAM, in the shop now. There are lots of new treasures and you can get a 10% discount as well when you use the code DB10 at the check out!  Sweet deal, eh?!
Thanks for letting me share today…
Have a beautiful Friday!

"Love in a Jar"

Nicole here today with a card I made for Valentine's Day using some of the newer products to the 3 Girl JAM store - colored lace (soon to be released) and jute string.

Here is a closer shot of the pink lace and the navy jute string.  I used some scor tape on the back of the jar lid to adhere my lace and then folded it over to give it a ruffled look.  This is one of the thinner laces and I chose to use it so that it didn't cover up all of my hearts in my jar.  I just love the "homemade" touch it gives to the mason jar.

For more info on my card, please visit my BLOG.  Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have been enjoying the sneak peeks of the colored lace that is about to make its debut in the 3 Girl JAM store.

Mixed Media Tag with the NEW Lace!

Blends and 3 Girl JAM-mers

I am happy to be the Design Team Member posting for 3 Girl JAM today!

I was super excited to get to play around and create a Mixed Media Tag for a swap I am in with a fun group on FB.  I spoke with my swap partner about her "favorites" and she was super sweet to give me a lot of ideas to work with.  As soon as she said "pinks, blues, silvers, whites, and greens", I grabbed the NEW Lace from 3 Girl JAM!!!  

This lace is beyond Gorgeous and I can't wait for it to be released so all my friends can play with it in their creations, too.  The colors are scrumptious and I adore the mixed colors Julie created and will have available!

I have included a picture heavy, information loaded, step-by-step at my personal blog, Jessica's Craft Shaque.  Feel free to stop by to get all the juicy details on this Mixed Media project and all the products that were used!

Now, to show the colors of the lace against my semi-finished tag.  GORGEOUS, RIGHT?

I started to embellish the tag first, by pleating and adhering the wider blue/green lace just under the hole at the top.

I then created a second row of lace, using the same technique, but with the thinner pink lace this time.  

I wanted to offset the large cluster of paper flowers on the bottom, by using some of the FABULOUS Crinkle Ribbon from the 3 Girl JAM Shop.

 I created a triple bow on my 3 Girl JAM Bow Maker using the Mixed Color Ribbon from the Red, White & Blue Bundle along with the Christmas Candy Ribbon from the Seasons Bundle.

Using some twine, I added a key charm to the center of the bow as I was making it with the Bow Maker.

A final touch --- adding the binder ring!

ALL IN ALL, I really enjoyed trying out this Mixed Media Project.

Pretty Valentine Treat bag by Marji

I used 3 different colors of alcohol ink bottles and just dropped them randomly over the dry bag.  I then soaked the bag with alcohol and rolled it up, squeezing it all over to help distribute the color a bit.  After about an hour I rinsed it out then laid it out to dry over night.
 The next day I got out one of my My Favorite Things stamp sets and some regular dye based ink pads and stamped away.
 I used hot glue to adhere the lace flowers to the bag as well as add the pearl centers.

Are you curious what I will do with it?  It contains Emily's Valentines day treats.  It holds a lot, she will be thrilled! 
 Isn't it pretty?  I SO love how it turned out, I'm proud of myself, I have been really intimidated by these bags and have gotten rid of quite a few over the years because I never knew what to do.

Guest Designer: Michele Kosciolek

SO super excited today to be introducing today's 3 Girl JAM guest designer, Michele - from Stuff By Belle.  Michele and I have been online crafty friends for some time, and let me tell you.....this gal's work is swoon-worthy!  Here's Michele!

Michele, or as some of you may know me...by belle, here today with a mixed media canvas project.  I am honored to be joining 3 Girl JAM today as a guest designer! 
I have been doing some sort of paper crafting for as long as I can remember but card making is where is all started... I love to spend hours in my craft room gluing, painting, stamping, tying ribbons etc...I am sure you all know exactly what I mean!!!!
On this canvas I used two fabulous 3 Girl JAM ribbons: jute and pink crinkle.  I also used UmWow Studio Chipboard, gesso, modeling paste, Distress paint and stain, Studio Calico wood veneer, Prima flower and leaves, floral pins and a Tim Holtz key and knob.

Here's a close-up:

I had so much fun creating this!!  Do you ever get an idea and then just can't stop until you are done??  Well, that is what happened with this canvas.  Thanks so much for sharing part of your day with me and special thanks to everyone at 3 Girl JAM for having me today!!  For more about me please feel free to visit on my blog anytime!!  http://stuffbybelle.blogspot.com.
Now, what did I tell you?  Total swoon, huh?  The beautiful crinkle ribbon totally sets off the pink and the gold in Michele's design.  POP!  And that beautiful Jute ribbon accents.....swoon!  On behalf of 3 Girl JAM thanks Michele for sharing your beautiful creation with us!

Winter Can be Pretty!

Hello, crafty friends.  Julie O here today from Muddy Paws & Inky FingersIt's been a long, cold, winter here in NW WI.  I must have been thinking cold when I made this box, but it just proves, winter can be pretty!

I tried a cutting file from Lettering Delights for the first time.  As you can see, it cut very nicely on my Silhouette.  I tied it up with one of my all-time favorite 3 Girl JAM ribbons, Summer Sprinkles, from the Seasons Bundle.  I love, love, love that ribbon.  It's beautiful in a subtle, elegant, way.
Here's another view of the box and 3 Girl JAM ribbon.

If you'd like to order some of this ribbon for yourself, or any of the other great 3 Girl JAM products, use discount code JO10 for a huge 10% off your entire order!
And, to prove winter can be pretty, I have some pictures to show you of winter in WI.  These were taken over the weekend at the Apostle Islands.  We visited some ice caves on Lake Superior.

I hope you enjoyed my little taste of winter.  For more details, please visit my blog, and don't forget about the current "Anything Goes" challenge going on here.

Winter Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!!

We are so glad that you are joining 3 Girl JAM and our friends at Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons for our Winter Blog Hop!  
You should have made it here from Gloria's Blog.  If you just happened to stop by, make sure to start at PPPR so you don't miss out on any of the fun!

Winter is not my favorite season.  In Iowa it is cold and snows ALOT!
The snow however is very pretty somedays- and the cold is a great excuse to stay inside and snuggle up and watch movies- or better yet- Craft!

We've had lots of snow lately- so when I saw the PPPR Heart Balloon and the Winter Wonderland files I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

 It's a Snowflake Hot Air Balloon to take me to somewhere warm!
I also used some 3Girl JAM Sterling Crinkle Ribbon and some NEW Hand Dyed Lace (that will be in the store very soon)!

I've also been really sick lately.  I am feeling much better now- but I went through a lot of tissues last week!

PPPR Get Well Cut File, 3GJ 5"x7" Cotton Bag

I made this so I can give it to the next person I know that gets sick.
Something to brighten their day!

Now-- to brighten your day:

We are offering a $20.00 3 Girl JAM Gift Certificate to one lucky person.
Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons is giving away a $20.00 gift certificate to their store too!
Just make sure to comment on everyone's stop along the Hop!

Delicate and Dainty Doilies

This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries and I'm so happy to be sharing this altered art project with you.  I'm sure you have noticed that there is no ribbon on this project and you may be wondering why it is posted on the 3 Girl JAM blog.  The answer is simple - 3 Girl JAM has gorgeous hand dyed lace that will be coming soon and I wanted to give you a sneak peek.  I used 2 of the different laces on today's project.  Julie has also added new Valentine's Flair in the store so be sure and check it out.

I used quite a variety of products on these little pieces of art, but they are actually fairly simple to make.  If you would like to alter some doilies similar to mine, you can use the products posted below.

Guest Designer: Migdalia

I am SO excited today to be introducing 3 Girl JAM guest designer, Migdalia from Crafting with Creative M!  I was super lucky enough to serve on a design team with Migdalia and am totally smitten with her style!  You are going to LOVE, love her project!  I know I do!
Good Morning to all my bloggie friends!
Today I am super excited to be a Guest Designer at 3 Girl JAM! Yippee!! Thanks Julie & Karen. Their theme is "Anything Goes" so I created this adorable set for my friend Baylee.  I altered the front cover of a notepad with modge podge and a Hello Kitty pattern paper. I used the Hello Kitty Nerdy SVG image and stamped "hello" on her shirt. The Gorgeous Crinkle Ribbons used on my project was that I won it in a challenge over at 3 Girl JAM. !! Thanks again. 

I adhered the "Holly Berry" Crinkle Ribbon to the bottom portion of the notepad with my ATG gun. I then placed a handmade flower (made by me) with the Gorgeous Crinkle Ribbon.

I cut strips of the "Holly Berry, Tuxedo, & Dress White Crinkle Ribbon and tied them to the top portion of the Notepad for a touch of cuteness....

A glittered pencil with the "Holly Berry" Crinkle Ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget that the 3 Girl JAM "Anything Goes" challenge is still going on and that there is still time to enter your project.
Feel free to stop by my BLOG and thanks for visiting 3 Girl JAM today!!

Special thanks from 3 Girl JAM to Migdalia for inspiring us with this FABULOUS project!

Just a Little Sweeter

Hey there and Happy FRIDAY!  
Donna K here with my very first post as a 2014 Design Team member 
right here on the 3 Girl JAM blog!
I'm pretty excited about the chance to show you one of the brand new treasures that you will soon be able to get your crafty little hands on.  
How do you love that wide lace ribbon?…..Seriously…. I swoon!!!  
I layered that gorgeous lace ribbon {it's approximately 2" wide!} with some fabulous crinkle ribbon and wound it around as the band for my double Z fold card to hold it in place.
The inside is stamped with my sentiment and I will probably just sign my name to this one..I think this card is just right as is.
Along with the card…
 A muslin bag all dressed up and filled with chocolates …
a simple, SWEET Valentine.  

You can find the bags…and the ribbons {new items coming SOON} and a wonderful selection of buttons right here!
If you're already in the mood for shopping…be sure to use the code DB10 at the check out, that little tidbit will save you 10% in the 3GirlJAM shop!
Thanks for letting me share with you today.

Karen N here from Craftily Yours, and I'm SO excited to be sharing my very FIRST 3 Girl JAM Design Team project!  Whoop Whoop!  I'm so honored to be part of this uber-talented team!

Yesterday was a VERY special day for a VERY special young lady in my life.  My niece, Katheryn, turned a very sweet 16.  My big brother and sister-in-law have raised a very smart, super talented and gorgeous young lady....  I'm very proud of her!

For today's post, I'm highlighting some gorgeous 3 Girl JAM Gold Crown crinkle ribbon (from the Royal Bundle) on a money envelope that contained my niece's birthday present.

The $20 was for the picture, but I'm pretty certain there is another bill or two tucked inside!  To see more detail about my project, be sure to stop by my blog after, of course, you spend a little time checking out all the crazy goodness in the 3 Girl JAM Store.

Thank You Cards with "Flair"

Nicole here today with a couple of "thank you" cards I have made using a few of  the 3 Girl JAM "thank you" flair.

One Beautiful Day

Blends and 3 Girl JAM-mers

Jessica B. from  Jessica's Craft Shaque here to share a quick project with you!

This card took about 10 minutes total to put together, which is quite the record for me.  I tend to always want to add "more" as I craft, but this time, I forced myself to stop sooner.  I would like to try my hand at "speed crafting" a lot this year.  It will help me to get more projects completed and open the door for me to try my hand at tackling more of the fun techniques on my "to-do" list.

I used the Ribbon Candy Red Crinkle Ribbon from the 3 Girl JAM Shop to create a sweet Elegant Floral for my card.  I love making these flowers for the Pinque Peacock Shop and customers.  It's always fun to use them on my own creations, too.  I adorned the floral with a Pearl Beaded Stick Pin (also from Pinque Peacock) and a few paper roses.

Please feel free to stop over to my Personal Blog @ http://jessicascraftshaque.blogspot.com for all the details on this quick 10 minute card and all the supplies I used.

A bit of bright sunshine for you by Marji

So pleased to be here sharing with you my beautiful and bright card.

 I chose to bring a little Florida Sunshine to those snowed and iced in up north.  So sorry it's such a horrible winter for you all!
 I love the foil papers and stickers, so shiny. 

 I used the Harvest bundle on my card, I love how perfectly it matches my papers.
Thanks for stopping by.
