merry and bright {card}

Hello! :) I am showcasing some more great ribbon and trim from 3 Girl JAM today. 

I used some Clover crinkle ribbon from the Sunny Meadows bundle which is a perfect match for the red and green striped ribbon in the Holiday Trim pack, which is also where I got the gold cord.

Merry Christmas bear {card} and a fun announcement

Hi! I have some fun news to share- I have been invited to be on the Craftin Desert Divas Digi Design Team! :) This will be a fun new adventure for me and I am looking forward to stretching my creativity.

Here is my first project as a DT member. I used the Winter Bear Digi Stamp.

I tried to make his fur appear a bit matted to make him look softer. I am delighted with how to the sheen on his hat turned out, too! 

I added some Glossy Accents to the poinsettia, the white in his eyes, and the red on the candy cane to add a bit of texture. 

I have also created a new facebook page just to share my crafty creations. I would love to have you "like" it. I tried to use the play on my name as I have here on the blog, but fb wouldn't allow it. Go figure.

polar bear felt gift card holder

Don't you love it when you get an idea and it not only works well, but comes together easily? This is one of those projects.

Most of my children are away, so I am always looking for fun ways to send them gifts for special occasions. When I was using the Stitched In Circles die set for several of my latest projects, I had an idea to incorporate felt and see what would transpire. I am going to make several more of these in the near future.

dies: Craftin Desert Divas Stitched In Circles
ribbon: 3 Girl JAM
sticker: Echo Park

I am also entering this project into the Make It Sparkle Craftin Desert Divas linky party- week 2.

grateful for you {card}

Hello! :) I am sharing a card featuring several wonderful products from 3 Girl JAM store. 

The background of this card was created by gluing three of the colored Jute Ribbons from the Jute Ribbon & String pack onto white cardstock. I did overlap on the cream jute ribbon as it is a bit wider than the merlot and sunflower colors. 

I then added the sentiment and finished off with some Green Jeans crinkle ribbon from the Saturday Morning bundle and the Charcoal crinkle ribbon from the Rustic Country Bundle
The button on the flower on the ribbon is from the Vintage Buttons pack

Jute, crinkle ribbon and button: 3 Girl JAM
pp and stickers: Echo Park
flowers: Wild Orchid
stick on brads: JoAnn

I am sharing a layout I created using the Make it Monday No. 49 sketch from The Memory Nest. It's been awhile since I have created a layout as my focus seems to have switched to cards and projects as well as trying new things. Maybe it's the time of year, but either way it was nice to create a layout for a change. 

It definitely went in a direction of its own, but the bones of the sketch are there. ;) 

I added some stitching to the hearts as a dimensional detail.
