Never ending card by Marji

I made a never ending card for today.  I used papers from CTMH and the file from the SIL store, talk about easy, lol, I let my machine to all the cutting and all I had to do was glue and embellish.
 This is one of my favorite papers, I love the birds and the colors are so pretty together.  I have a hard time throwing scraps away so I put them to use on this card, the little ribbon "bow" at the top are 3 scraps. I used glue dots to attach them together then added a pearl to the center.  
I used our new flower die cut ribbon across the bottom.
 Fun right?  I added pearls and gems through out along with some stamping.  ( I actually inked up some stamps!)
 Now that I have this cutting file, I see myself making more of these cards, no measuring or calculating.  And using double sided paper made it even easier.

Happy 4th with Navy Jute

Hello Crafty Friends,

This is Georgiana from Carson's Creations and today is my day to share. I have a special treat using another favorite product (LOVE the color too) from the 3 Girl JAM shop.

Here is my Design Team Project...
I created a small treat bag (Silhouette On-line #45733) perfect for all those guest that come over on Independence Day. I included Twizzlers that I cut to bite size. The 3" x 3" plastic bag fits inside nicely.

I used 3 Girl JAM's Navy Jute String to tie the bag closed.

Currently on sale for $4.97...be sure to use GC10 for a discount!

A tag (from Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge) stamped with Happy July 4th (from the Celebrate Freedom set available at Craftin' Desert Divas) hangs from the front flap. I added a couple red stars and blue liquid pearls.

New monthly challenge starts tomorrow!
Hope you will join us!

Stay Creative,

Pelicans and Sunshine

Happy Thursday, ribbon lovers!  Julie O here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.   Our Summertime challenge is winding down, but summer is just getting started, so I made a summer themed card for today.

A pelican in a straw hat -- definitely summer, right?  I used 3 Girl JAM  crinkle ribbon from the Red, White, and Blue Bundle for this card.  I LOVE the red in this bundle.  It's such a true, vibrant red.

Quick Mini Journal

Good morning everyone.  This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries and I hope you are having a great day.  I also really hope that you aren't sick of seeing altered notebooks from me.  There is actually a little story behind this one.  I have been a bit swamped lately and running behind in projects that I need to get done.  Friday morning for the real world was actually "Monday" for me.  It was day 1 of 3 days of 12+ hour shifts.  My plan was to come home Friday night and get the project for today made and posted.  I had a general plan on what I was going to make until I made it home that night.

I have been shadowed by a nursing student during 6 of my last 9 shifts.  She is a great student and I think she will make a fabulous nurse.  She is very organized and always has a little spiral notebook for her notes.  On Friday I realized that she didn't have her notebook and we were using notebook and scrap paper all day for her notes.  When I asked about it, she mentioned that she had forgotten it at home.  When she spends her shifts in my town, she doesn't go home, but stays here.  I knew I had to switch up my original posting plans and make her a little book.  She loved it so I was really glad it worked out that way.

Though you can barely see it, I used gorgeous "Aqua Splash" ribbon to cover the binding.

Be sure to head over to DJ's Sundries and check out what is going on right now.  I have some fun stuff that you might be interested in seeing.  Also be sure to check out the 3 Girl JAM challenge blog that is "All About Summer"
Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.

Guest Designer~Peggy Tielemans

Hi Friends! I am so excited and honored to be announcing today's 3 Girl JAM Guest Designer, Peggy Tielemans. I "met" Peggy via YouTube over a year ago and we quickly became long distance crafty friends. Peggy lives in Belgium and she does such beautiful work, lots of layering & textures which I love. If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing her beautiful creations, you can check out her YT channel HERE .

So all the way from Belgium...let me introduce you to Peggy : )

Hi, I’m Peggy and I live in Belgium. I live in a small village near Antwerp. I’m married to Bert he’s my best friend and we have two children. I have always been crafting, I started card making about 15 years ago and tried a variety of techniques.I love my Copic Markers, papers and papers and of course lace and ribbon.
My other addiction is coffee with lots and lots of milk and chocolate ... and yes .... we in Belgium have the best !!
It is a great honor to be a guest designer and thank you Abby for asking me.

 Peggy created a gorgeous flip flop mini...let's see what she has to say about her creation using the yummy 3GJ Hot & Cold Bundle & the Distressed Lace

I was asked to create a summer themed project. When I think about summer, I see: blue sky, sun and sea and a lot of free time. And there was my idea to create a flip flop mini album .
I used papers from DCWV and vintage images, the hot and cold bundle and the distressed laces from 3GJ. For my mini I used vintage images but you can also use pictures or it can store entry tickets from summer events.

Now for some photos of her beautiful Flip Flop Mini...
 Peggy did an amazing job on this Flip Flop mini and I love the creative use of the ribbon as the straps on the cover. 

Peggy~THANK YOU so much for Guest Designing for 3 Girl JAM and for creating such a fun and adorable summer mini. Big hugs girl!!

Thanks for stopping by the 3GJ blog today and be sure to head to the 3GJ Store to pick up some of the yummy ribbons & laces for yourself. 

Happy Crafting!!

Pretty little plant by Marji

 Hello there, I'm sharing a really exciting project, I saw this in the SIL store and knew it would be fun.
Image of *New* Tie Dye 2 BundleImage of *New* Tie Dye Bundle
I tied loose knots and put them in the center of the plants.

 I used the yellow and the green together to tie a bow around the pot.
 I totally love how this turned out.  I'm pretty sure I will be making some of these as gifts for some people I love.
