I'm a guest designer today on 3 Girl JAM!!

Welcome!  Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. And a huge thanks to Rebecca Daniels and Julie K. for inviting me to be a guest designer for 3 Girl JAM. I was totally inspired when I saw these two ribbons together, Merlot (from the wine and jewels bundle) and antique white (from the pink & white bundle).  The two colors spoke of winter to me, so that's the direction I went.  Here's what I created with the beautiful crinkle ribbons:


Supplies used for this project were:  Echo Park Winter Wishes 6x6 paper, Close To My Heart Chipboard album shapes, CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge (used to cut the paper in the same shape as the chipboard album pieces), Cricut Classic Font -- letters cut at 3 inches, and cut with the shadow feature also), Tim Holtz Distress stains in Faded Jeans & Dusty Concord to ink the edges of the chipboard shapes, white American Crafts cardstock (letters), CTMH smoky plum cardstock (letters), CTMH jump rings, CTMH jewels bling, Spellbinders scalloped oval die, Pioneer glue stick, Zig 2-way glue, Crop-a-dile II to punch additional holes in the chipboard, watercolor paper -Strathmore coldpress 90 lb (from my friend, Rebecca!), Sparkling Waters paints, Jillibean Soup baker's twine, and a Unity Stamp Company Itty Bitty called, "You Melt My Heart" (IB-MLS-214). And, of course, the 3 Girl JAM ribbons.

Here's a close up of the watercolored snowman so you can see if I stayed in the lines or not ;)
And, there you have it, my winter banner, all decked out in beautiful antique white and merlot 3 Girl JAM ribbons.  Thanks again to Rebecca and Julie for the wonderful opportunity to create with their fantastic ribbon.  I had snow much fun!

  6. This is a great project! Thanks for taking the time to put it together and share it over on 3GirlJam! I always love what you do (even if you didnt stay in the lines -- which you did -- HA!!)

    And double thanks for taking the time to list out in detail all the products you used to make it. I was wondering where I might get similarly shaped chipboard!
