3 Girl Jam New Color Release Blog Hop

It's a big event!  It doesn't happen often!  3 Girl Jam has released 3 new bundles of ribbon and the whole design team is hopping today to showcase these luscious new ribbons for you.  Here's the lineup, just in case you came here midway, or you get lost along the way.

I know you have already seen some fabulous creations, and you've heard all about the new bundles (The Navy bundle {Navy and Dress White} the Coffee and Cream bundle {latte and cream} and the Royal bundle {purple passion and gold crown}), but I just had to mention them again.  They're so scrumptious that have to be talked about.  And, they have to be used. And, they have to be showcased!

With Mother's Day just around the corner, I thought this box would be perfect for a Mother's Day gift.  It could hold chocolates or a gift card, even some perfume or lotion.



 I used the Close To My Heart Cricut Artiste Cartridge to cut out the box.  All the new ribbons are used on the box.  The are tucked in around the flower.  Here's another angle:


 
The flower was cut using the Close To My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  Paper is CTMH For Always.  The new ribbons are all available in the 3 Girl Jam Store.  And, the best part!?! They are on sale! All ribbon orders are 20% through May 5 (excluding bundle deals).
 
Here's one more view of the box and the beautiful new ribbons...
 

I don't know where I got that butterfly from.  One of those things I've accumulated over time.  Does everyone do that? 

Have you chosen a favorite new ribbon color yet?  I like the Coffee & Cream bundle best, no, I mean the Navy bundle.  Umm, I mean the Royal bundle.  *sigh*  better start shopping!  After hopping of course! One lucky person will win a bundle of each new color during this hop.  Just leave a comment on each of the blogs along the way.

I am giving away blog candy this week.  To be eligible, please follow my blog and comment on today's post.  To increase your chances of winning, also comment on my posts from Monday, April 29, Tuesday, April 30, Thursday May 2, Friday May 3, and Saturday May 4.  I'll announce the winner early next week when I've recovered from all this crafty inspiration.

Now, hop on to my design team sister, Liz, at http://www.217creations.com/.  You'll love her work.  She's always full of inspiration!
