Santa Claus Pillow Box - 3GJ dt

Hello!  Today is my turn to post on the 3 Girl JAM blog and I have 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!!  

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.

Christmas Tags - 3GJ dt

Today is my turn to post on the 3 Girl JAM blog.  Can you believe we are two days into December already - the "busy" season is upon us.  I decided to create a few tags to add to my dwindling collection in order to help prepare for Christmas wrapping.

I "tied" up my tags using some 3 Girl JAM "Natural Jute" ribbon and some red/green striped ribbon from the new 3 Girl JAM "Holiday Trim".  I love how the colors all work together so well.  This cute little elf is a freebie from Whimsie Doodles.  I finished off my tags with a couple of flowers I got from Michaels.  Thanks for stopping by today!!  Remember to use code NE10 to save 10% off of your purchase from the 3 Girl JAM store.

Warm Winter Wishes - PPPR dt

Happy Monday!!  Today is my turn to share a project on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' blog.  I have a winter card to share using one of the newest Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' cut files.  

My card is a 4.5" square card and I used the PPPR "Sweet Snowman" cutting files to create my fun little snowman.  I did add a bit of bling with my Wink of Stella pen.  My patterned paper is from the Lawn Fawn 6x6 "Snow Day" paper pad.  My sentiment is from Craftin Desert Divas "Snowman Kisses" stamp set.

Don't forget there is still time to take advantage of the Black Friday Sale!!

And now on to my creation....

I just love shaker cards and boy do I have a collection of sequins, beads and glitter that needs to be used up by creating a bunch of these babies!!  For my project I decided to create a shaker card using one of the snowmen, along with a sentiment, from the CDD "Snowman Kisses" stamp set.  I colored this cute guy with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I used some Doodlebug "Frosty Friends" paper for my background.  I created the card in the Silhouette DE software.  My bow is 3 Girl JAM "Ice Blue" crinkle ribbon and then I hot glued it in place to give the rippled effect.  I glued on some snowflake gems I found at Michaels.  Inside my card I used a bit of tinsel glitter and white beads from Recollections.

So hop, hop, hop on over to the talented Lori.  
Come join us here on Facebook - CDD Gallery - We'd love you to share your projects using the CDD stamps.
