Love Challenge

Here today with a card for the February 2015 3 Girl JAM Challenge - Love.  Don't we all just love love?  I know I do!

Here's my card using 3 Girl JAM Light and Bright Lace and Antique White Crinkle Ribbon!

How fun is that funky cup o' tea?!  I went to CHA earlier this month and got turned on to a new-to-me stamp company called Dare2BArtzy.  How fun is that name?  The paper is strips of scraps from a Basic Grey collection.  (I taped them onto a piece of paper and ran them through an embossing folder.  The image is colored with Copic markers.

You know what else is fun, fun?!  Entering the 3 Girl JAM Challenge and saving 10% off your entire purchase at the 3 Girl JAM store - with code KN10!

Craftily yours,


New Product at Cut @ Home!

I've got several cards up at the Cut@Home blog today where I'm introducing the NEW Sizzix Precision Base Plate that was announced at CHA.  It's pretty cool as it makes cutting intricate dies very easy.  

Here's one of my cards using Graphic 45 Mother Goose 6x6 patterns and solidsTaylored Expressions Max & Muffin stamps and the Spellbinders Medallion One.  This medallion die cut really beautifully with the new plate.

Mini Lay-out

Karen N here from Craftily Yours.  I'm in the process of making a frame that will hold mini-layouts, but I needed one lay-out first to make sure that it is going to work.  Here's what I did:

I used Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower paper, and the Timeless Twine in Natural White was perfect for the paper.  Also perfect are the GORGEOUS sequinsto embellish my little lay-out.  They will be available at Bella Creationz soon!  The picture is a from CHA this year.  I was lucky enough to go and to bring along my mom.  Some of her friends were there, and we all had a blast together!

So Beautiful

TODAY is my niece's 17th birthday!  What better way to celebrate that post her card on the 3 Girl JAM blog?!  (Maybe she'll get a little sumpin-sumpin from Auntie too!)  I think the BEST thing a young lady can learn is confidence in herself, so I thought I'd remind her that she is very beautiful.  She happens to be SMART, FUNNY, and NICE too!  The whole enchilada!  Anyway, here's her card!

I've used 3 Girl JAM Simply White Lace and Red Ribbon Candy Crinkle Ribbon.  I thought they went perfectly with this sweet feminine card! Have you checked out the 3 Girl JAM store lately?  You should!  You can save 10% off your WHOLE purchase with code KN10?  Heck of a deal!

The paper is from my scrap pile, pearls from The Pearl Girl, and stamps from Unity Stamp Company.  The girl is colored with Copic Markers.

Have you entered the 3 Girl JAM "Anything Goes w/ Ribbon" challenge?  Anything, with ribbon, that's easy, huh?

Craftily yours,

With Gratitude

I'm excited to be returning to Timeless Twine/Bella Creationz as part of the 2015 Creative Crew!  Happy New Year!!

Recently, my family went through something hard.  When stressful times come, crafting keeps my sanity.  My sister-in-law asked me to get some thank you cards, so she could send them out to people who had shown her kindness.  "Get" some?  As in "buy"?  Instead I made six of these!

So much fun to color and embellish!  And what better way to embellish than with some GORGEOUS Timeless Twine?  It comes in so many beautiful colors; Pumpkin Orange was perfect for these cards, don't you think?!  The paper is from Websters Pages, and the image and sentiment are from Unity Stamp Company {image:  ...May Hope Sustain You; sentiment: ...bunches of love}.

Craftily yours,
