Hello Crafty Friends!
Today is my lucky day! My dear friend Jessica Shelton Buffa, a member of the amazing 3 Girl Jam design team, asked me to be a guest designer at the 3 Girl Jam Blog today! I was over the moon excited to have this opportunity!
I have been a scrapbooker for a long time, in one form or another! I've dabbled in many types of crafts over the years, but paper crafting has always been what I've returned to. I met my sweet friend Jessica, from Jessica's Craft Shaque and The Pinque Peacock when we both served on the same design team. We quickly developed a great friendship and we found we share the same birthday!
I was first introduced to the wonderful 3 Girl Jam products when I found out that Jessica was on their design team! I participated in a blog hop and won some wonderful crinkle ribbon for blog hop candy! Jessica told me how wonderful the 3 Girl Jam Bow Maker was - so I could not wait to get my hands on that!
I've been a bit out of my "crafty game" due to foot surgery at the end of December. I am moving around a little bit more and was excited to get back in the craft room and create a project to share with you today!
The theme of Challenges going on at 3 Girl Jam right now is "It's A Party" and I was excited to make a card that could be used for a variety of celebrations but most likely a birthday.
I recently received a Silhouette Cameo and I am finally getting the chance to experiment with it! I cut the birthday candles file that I purchased from the Silhouette America store. Layered it up on several layers of cardstock to give this project a lot of dimension and used some Crystal Lacquer on the flames of the candles.
Crystal Lacquer on the flames of the candles-
I love to give a lot of dimension to my projects. I used foam layering squares to pop up
I decided to tie my cute candles all together with some ribbon. With the AMAZING 3 Girl Jam Bow Maker, even I can make cute little bows!
This product is amazing and could not be easier to use! I used some white Crinkle Ribbon from 3 Girl Jam and then added the most precious little stick pin from the Pinque Peacock to top it all off!
Thank you so much for stopping by and please be sure to check out the wonderful things that are happening over at 3 Girl Jam!
