Thanks a Latte - 3GJ dt

I am here today with my last post as a design team member for 3 Girl JAM.  I have had the privilege of serving on this design team for almost 2 years now and I have enjoyed every moment of it!!  However, I felt the end of this term was a good time for me to step aside and allow some other talented crafters a chance at working with this fabulous company.  So, with that said, let me share with you a card I made for my post today -

I used one of the newer products to the 3 Girl JAM store - "Simply White Lace" - as a border and then topped it off with a double bow using some Sterling Crinkle Ribbon from the 3 Girl JAM "Celebrations" bundle.  I used my 3 Girl JAM bow maker to create my double bow and then hot glued a snowflake gem to the top of it.  I used a sentiment from Cardz TV Stamps' "Brew Ha Ha" set. My "latte" is from the Silhouette store - id#50990.  Thanks for stopping by today!!

Get Well Soon - PPPR dt

Today is my turn to post on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' Blog and I have a get well card to share that I made using the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Doctor Visit" cutting files.  I realized the other day that I didn't have a single get well card ready to go in my card stash so I decided to rectify that situation with this -

I used 2 files from this set for my card -

I used Lawn Fawn's "Let's Polka" 6x6 inch paper pack for my background paper.  My sentiment is from Craftin Desert Divas' "Simply Said" stamp set.  

  Have you seen this week's great FREEBIE???

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Happy Holidays!! CDD dt

Wow!! Only two days until Christmas!!  Today is my turn to post on the Craftin Desert Divas blog and I have a card to share with you that I made for my coworker also my daughter's ballet teacher.  I used a sentiment from the "Happy Celebrations" stamp set.  I used a digital stamp from The Greeting Farm and colored it with my new Spectrum Noir markers.  (Bare with me as I am still mastering the technique of coloring with alcohol markers)

Here is a closeup of the sentiment -

I just love this stamp set because it covers almost every holiday you can think of!! Click on the photo below to shop for this great set in the Craftin Desert Divas store.

I wanted to share with you one of the other things I made for my coworker -

I used an image from the Silhouette store and cut it out of black vinyl and adhered it to a Softsoap bottle that I had taken the label off of.  Thanks for stopping by today and Merry Christmas!!

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!!

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.
