3 Girl JAM Guest Designer Post

Good Morning! I hope you all had a safe and fun New Year's Eve. I managed to stay up until 11:30p.m and then I crashed! We played Wii bowling, had some salsa dip and a mocha cheese ball and my daughter popped poppers. So far this year has been good, I only worked 2 days this week and it was looking after 1 kid, next week we are back to the norm. Well for my project today I thought I would make something other then a card for the Guest Designer Spot over at 3 Girl JAM. it was so sweet of Cheri from DJ's Sundries to ask me to be a Guest Designer and I jumped at the chance as I love the crinkle ribbon. For my project I made a hair clip. Below is a picture of the first one I made and then I realized I wanted to show you a step by step of how I made it so I decided to take pictures of how I made one using 2 other colours.

What I Used:

3 Girl JAM : Merlot & London Blue (first picture)
                     Cherry Lipstick &  Baby Girl (step by step)
Spellbinders Nestabilities Die: Scalloped Circle LG
Hair Clip
1" Circle Punch
Needle Thread
Hot Glue Gun

In my last post I told you how to make the little flower using a needle and thread HERE. It was alittle hard to get a picture of it because I didn't want to poke my finger! I hope the pictures help you in figuring out how to make this. It was very easy and they look really cute in a little girl's hair!

Well that is it for me, I may be back in the distant future.

God Bless!

3 Girl JAM Guest Designer: Anything Goes Challenge

Wow it's been awhile since I last posted, it's been bitter sweet to stop blogging. I don't have the motivation to craft but I have more time to focus on more important things. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. It was quiet around here alot of people were sick and unable to make it or couldn't get time off work to come from out of town. I have the time off work until the 2nd of January which is a nice break from all the kids (although my daughter keeps asking when they are coming back). Like I said in my last post I have 2 Guest Designer spots that I had already promised to do before I made the decision to stop blogging so today is the first of those posts.It's a Guest Designer for 3 Girl JAM Challenge Blog . They have a challenge going on "Anything Goes". I decided to create a centre step card and used two colours of the beautiful crinkle ribbon that Julie and her daughter's sell, Baby Blue and Ice Blue.

What I Used:

3 Girl JAM: Baby Boy & Ice Blue Crinkle Ribbon
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps : January Carnations & Bethany's Birthday Wishes
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Spectrum Noir: TB1 & TB2
Bic Mark It Markers: Green
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Baby's Breath
Spellbinders Nestabilites: Big Scalloped Ovals (SM)
Martha Stewart Border Punch: Lace Doily
Pop Dots
Needle and thread

I had never made this type of flower out of the ribbon but it was very easy. You just weave the needle and thread through the bottom of the ribbon and pull it tight to form the flower, stitch the two ends together, glue a button to the centre and there you go! In January I have another non card project that I have made using this type of flower for my second Guest Designer spot. Head on over to 3 Girl JAM Challenge Blog and join in the fun!

Have A Great Day!

God Bless!

A Sad Good Bye

Good Morning! This is a hard post for me to write as I have had a great 3 years but I am sad to say I have made the tough decision to stop blogging. It has taken up alot of my time lately, time that should be spent with my daughter and working on my relationship with God. I still have two more posts one on Dec. 28th and one in January as I have been asked to be Guest Designers before I made this decision and I already have the projects done. I will be stopping cold turkey, meaning I will not post or visit other blogs as I know if I were to continue visiting blogs I would be temped to start blogging again, I just feel that this is the time for me and I can't keep putting it off. Thank you to all of you who have continued to support me and follow me, thank you to all the wonderful friends I have made, I hope that our friendship can continue via email or facebook!!

Good Bye!

Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge: Matt.2:10-11

Good Morning! Last work day of the week and thank goodness, it has been a busy week with a full house of kids and no outdoor time with it being way to cold outside. I am so sad to say that Stampin' Sisters in Christ has decided that this will be their last challenge this week. I have really enjoyed playing along with their challenges so I am going to miss it. The challenge this week comes from Matthew 2:10-11

"They rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And... presented gifts to Him."

Make A Christmas card

With Christmas just around the corner this was an easy challenge. I love Christmas even though it is a hard time of the year, loved ones that can't be with us.  I wanted my card to show the true meaning of Christmas and why we celebrate it.

What I Used:
C.C Designs: Swiss Pixie Baby Jesus & Angel
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Bic Mark It Markers
Spectrum Noir Markers
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Labels Seven
Stickles: Star Dust & Golden Rod
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Candy Cane Strips
Glitter Ribbon

I have yet to put a sentiment inside but I will probably print out something off my computer. I love this image and have one more copy of it for now as I stamped it at the crop a month ago. Well I really hope you join in this last challenge you have until Saturday Dec 1 at 11:59p.m.

Have A Wonderful Weekend!

God Bless!

Clearly iStamp Challenge

Good morning! Half way through the week and I am tired! We have had a 5 month old baby all week as her mom is unpacking their house, they were finally able to move into it! I forgot what it was like to have a baby in the house. Anyways Clearly iStamp has another challenge going on, it's theme is "Clean and Simple".

What I Used:
Clear Dollar Stamps : Charlie Snowhorse
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Spectrum Noir Marker
Bic Mark It Markers
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Classic Scalloped Rectangles (LG)
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Not sure again as it was done at crop

This is was a very simple card to make and not alot going on, the embossing gives it just the right amount of detail so that it isn't too plain!!

Challenge ends on December 6th at midnight.

Have a Great Day!

God Bless!

3 Girl JAM Challenge

Good morning!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I spent Saturday preparing Christmas crafts for the daycare kids and Sunday babysitting my neighbors two little girls. 3 Girl JAM has another challenge going on the theme is Thanksgiving/ colour challenge with ribbon. Since we Canadians already had our Thanksgiving back in October I thought I would make a thank you card using the colours and ribbon, after all the reason we celebrate Thanksgiving is to show how thankful we are.

What I Used:
3 Girl JAM : Crinkle Ribbon Sunflower
Heidi Grace Stamps: Girlfriends
My Creative Time : Just Simply Live
Memento Ink: Rhubarb Stalk
Dollar Store Ink: Yellow
Martha Stewart Border Punch: Traditional Scallop
Martha Stewart Score Board
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: no idea what it is called, did the embossing at crop.
Pop Dots

I saw this technique on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try. I took a 3x3 piece of white cardstock and scored it at 1" and 2" then turned it once and scored it again at 1" and 2". I then stamped my flower images to give it kind of a grid look. I then stamped another flower and cut it out and popped it up using pop dots on the stamped background.

Challenge ends on December 6th.

Have A Great Day!

God Bless!
