Bon Bon Valentine's Day Card ~ PPPR DT day

Happy Wednesday!!  It is time for another design team post for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' design team.  Today I have a Valentine's Day card for you using one of the newest sets to the PPPR store - "Valentine Sweets".  I decided to make a "long" card that would fit into a regular sized business envelope - 9" x 4".  I did a print and cut with my cameo to create the sentiment.  I used some dimensional foam tape to create a wave effect to my sentiment banner.

I just love this newest set from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons!!  The layers are such that you can take off the hearts and use the cut files for other occasions besides Valentine's Day.

"Love in a Jar" - 3GJ Design Team Post

Today I have a card to share with you that 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.

If you love this lace or any other 3 Girl JAM products for that matter, head on over to the 3Girl JAM store and receive 10% off your order by using code NE10.  Happy Shopping!!
Other supplies used~
The mason jar with hearts is from the Silhouette store - #37845
I used some clear acetate over top of the jar and sewed it into place.  I stamped my hearts using a variety of Cardz TV Stamps' sets (Be My Valentine, Ticket Talk, Snail Mail) - sometimes I put scotch tape over sections of the stamp because I only wanted one of the words to stamp.  After I ink the stamp up I take the scotch tape off and voila!!  I have only the word(s) I want stamped.  I used my Stardust Gelly Roll pen to highlight the heart in my sentiment.

Winter Wonderland Layout - PPPR design team

Thanks for stopping by today.  I have a scrapbook layout to share with you that I have made for my design team project for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  I was inspired to make this layout after we had a bizarre winter storm that threw our poor town into chaos for a week.  

For my layout I used the following files -

Thank You Cards with "flair" - 3GJ design team post

Today is my design team post for 3 Girl JAM and I have a couple of  "thank you" cards to share that I made using a few of  the 3 Girl JAM "thank you" flair.

I got my inspiration for my first card from a card I pinned on Pinterest which you can see here.  

For my second card I also used some "tuxedo" crinkle ribbon from the 3GJ Celebrations bundle and tied a double bow using the 3GJ bow maker.  The eiffel tower is from the Silhouette online store and the flowers, pearls and sequins were from my stash.  Thanks for stopping by today!!
