Make Snow Angels

I've got a Christmas card up on the 3 Girl JAM blog today.  Christmas is just a little more than a month away?!  Are you done with your Christmas cards yet?!  I am...  I send out over 100 cards per year, and I love making them.  I have probably made 150, so I may have gone a bit overboard!  LOL!

My card uses 3 Girl JAM Aqua Splash crinkle ribbon from the Carribean SplashCollection and some of the Simply White Lace.....which I just LOVE!



The paper is from Basic Grey Aspen Frost, and there's a smidge of Timeless Twine too!  The stamp is from Unity Stamp Company.

Before you go, remember that you can order from the 3 Girl JAM store and get a sweet 10% off using coupon code KN10.  And have you entered the 3 Girl JAM Christmas/holiday challenge?!  You should!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Face the Sunshine

I've got a card up over at 3 Girl JAM today.  It's a card I made for a friend who has had quite a bit of emotional upset in her life recently.  I wanted to let her know that there are people out there who care.  We all should know that, right?

I used some Tie Dye Blue Crinkle Ribbon, some blue Distressed Lace, Basic Grey Serenade paper and a Unity Stamp Company image/sentiment to make this card for her.


I love the sentiment, and the 3 Girl JAM ribbon and lace were perfect, don't ya think?

Some fun news...  Did YOU know that YOU can save 10% off your entire 3 Girl JAM purchase with check-out code KN10?  WoWzers.

Craftily yours,

Time to Flourish

I have a SUPER fun project up over at the Cut@Home blog today using the NEW Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Collection.  Cut @Home sent me the ENTIRE collection and asked me if I'd make a little something to show it off.  What?!  Really!?  Oh my goooooodness, yes!

I made me a keepsake box.


It's made with the Graphic 45 Mixed Media box.  The box comes with 6 "coaster-sized" cardstock pages.  The Time to Flourish collection is month-themed, so I decided to decorate each side of the inside with a month to have remember-the-dates cards for my box.   These cards were SO much fun to decorate.  Check 'em out!


 This is one of my ALL-TIME favorite projects!  I absolutely LOVE it.  I hope you will go check out my post at the Cut@Home blog.  I have a video posted there.  Go seeee!  And while you are there, sign up  for the VIP mailing list.  The company sends out GREAT coupons.  Really great ones.

Making Spirits Bright

I'm up on the Timeless Twine blog today sharing a fun holiday card in fun non-traditional colors!


I love this image and sentiment from Unity and felt that it needed super happy colors!  What better super happy color than Timeless Twine in Raspberry Pink?!  I added some sequin from the Bella Creationz Clearly Beautiful set.  I love twine, and I love sequins!

Have you stopped by the Bella Creationz store to see ALL the fabulous fun goodies there?  You should!

Grandma's Reindeer

I've got some fun cards up over at Cut@Home today using the FABULOUS Cottage Cutz Flying Deer die.  This die is quickly becoming one of my favorite for Christmas cards!  

For this card, I cut the reindeer in gold and used some Heartfelt Creations Snowy Blanket collection paper.

I love the elegant deer, the pretty lace and that funny sentiment from Unity Stamp Company, Naught is the New Nice!  I also used some 3 Girl JAM Lace and pearls from The Pearl Girl.

Fun Fall Napkin Holders

I'm up on the Timeless Twine blog today with some fun fall napkin holders.  What I did was grab the empty paper towel roll and cut it into 1.5 inch pieces.  I then covered the pieces with paper (from BG Life of the Party collection).  Then I cut and decorated tags and tied it all together with some of the beautiful Timeless Twine in Autumn Splendor.


These are the ones for my husband and me.  (I put our initials on them...)  Super fun and festive way to decorate up a table, yes?  Here's a close-up.



Craftily yours,

Karen
