Happy Day {card}

I am up with 3 Girl JAM today featuring the beautiful Caribbean Splash bundle. The Coral Crush and Aqua Splash ribbons bring out the colors on the floral print papers perfectly and provides a nice tropical finish to this card.

hello lovely

This is my second post today. :) This layout was inspired by The Memory Nest's Make it Monday No. 44 sketch. I pushed paper around a lot while I was creating this and was not satisfied until I simplified, and now I love it!

pp and die cuts: Cocoa Vanilla Hello Lovely collection
Pink epoxy dots: Michael's

Thanks for stopping by! 


I haven't been playing with paper as much as I had hoped this summer, but I made some time to scrap this week. I  have had a creative block (my brain is spinning with ideas, but I just cannot focus. lol) so I turned to The Memory Nest and the Make it Monday sketches. 

This layout came together quickly using the Make it Monday 46 sketch as inspiration.  

cs: Hobby Lobby
pp, stickers and flair: Cocoa Vanilla Sugar & Spice collection
wooden butterflies, white epoxy dots, and twine: Michael's
2 cute wooden accent: Crate Paper

I just adore how this tuned out! :)

Hello Sunshine {card}

Hi! :) I am up on the 3 Girl JAM blog today with a card I made for my daughter, Skylar, who is stationed in Bahrain. She is a ray of sunshine and I call her Sunshine, so this is the perfect card for her.

I used the Sunflower crinkle ribbon from the Harvest Bundle for the bow, as well as a blueish button from the Vintage Button pack.

pp: Echo Park
ribbon and button: 3 Girl JAM

Shine On

I haven't had a lot of scrappy time since sweet Princess Aubree was born, but a few weeks ago I managed to create two layouts that I forgot to share. 

here is one of Ashlyn (the girl is THRIVING!). I used a school-themed collection on this. I have been hoarding it. lol

cs: Hobby Lobby
pp, vellum and stickers: Websters Pages
enamel dots: MME
doily: Crutsey Boutique
paper tape: Simple Stories

This layout is Ashlyn, myself and my husband. I have few layouts with me in them and I am making it a point to try to scrap myself more. :)

cs: Hobby Lobby
pp, paper tape and vellum: Simple Stories
die cuts: Pink Paislee
sequins: Hazel & Ruby

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying your summer. Ours is just about over. I have decided to make things a lot easier on myself and am going to use an online curriculum for Ashlyn's core subjects this school year, We are going to begin a modified schedule next week so we can both learn the program so when she officially begins on August 17th we will have an idea of what to expect and have a little of the learning curve mastered. I imagine that it will take us several weeks to find a groove, but we'll get there. 

She will get a break in between our "learning curve" week and actual starting week. She has been accepted to attend Camp Oasis (a special camp for kids with IBD- Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis). She has been too ill to attend the past several years. so she is super excited to be able to go this year. I am thrilled for her, but I am going to miss her. It will be the longest I have ever been away from my baby, but she will be in excellent hands with a medical staff 24/7. She will have the opportunity to be with other kids her age who suffer from IBD as well, which is going to be an amazing experience for her. I am sure I will miss her more than she will miss me. lol

Today I am featuring the gorgeous 3 Girl JAM Charcoal crinkle ribbon from the new-ish Rustic Country Bundle. I love how this ribbon has a beautiful brownish/grayish base and enhanced the colors from the papers I used. 

I created 3 bows and then cut them at the loops. I added a some of the ribbon through the chipboard button piece and then adhered it upon the ribbon. 

Don't forget you have two ways to save at the 3 Girl JAM store; you can use the code RB10 to receive 10% off your entire purchase or you can purchase the special ribbon bundle of the month, the Summer Harvest Bundle, for just $1 with any purchase by using the  JULY!
