Guest Designer - 3 Girl JAM - Things I Love

I got a message from my dear friend, Karen, a few weeks ago asking if I'd like to do a Guest Designer post for a fabulous Design Team that she's on for 3 Girl JAM.  

Um, YES!!!  I would love to!! :)

I honestly have never used any of their ribbon so Karen sent me some and I can promise you that I will be purchasing some in the future!  It's soft, and super easy to work with.  I loved it!  This ribbon is also AWESOME for layering.  It's not thick so it doesn't add a ton of bulk to your page which really impressed me.

Before I had decided what project I was going to use it on, I knew from others that have used the ribbon that it was easy to dye so I knew that I could make it work on ANYTHING!!  I ended up not needing to, however, because the cream matches the paper/embellishments that I chose REALLY nicely. :)

Michaels has an exclusive Project Life core kit by the fabulous Maggie Holmes, but no embellishments to go along with it.  Since I work for Cuttin' and Stampin', I decided to add some of the embellishments to our store to fill that void. :)

Here's what I came up with:

Title card:
One of my all time favorite cards I've ever made - probably my favorite.  

I used UmWow Studio arrow mash and heart mask for the black hearts and main arrow.  I used a gold Wink of Stella brush on the arrow, and a blue one on the butterfly.  I also added 2 Regal Gold Candi dots to add a little more oomph to the card.  Lots of dimension to this!!  Love it!  The UmWow chipboard is the best that I've found that makes the Wink of Stella ink the most glittery.  It's really kind of hard to see the glitter in the image, but trust me - it's there!!

The frame on the bottom right card is a fabric frame that I just folded over the top of the picture since it's a bit bigger than this photo.  Love all of the different materials on this spread! :)  The blue heart and yellow geotag (left bottom picture) are from WeR Memory Keepers Enamel Dot collection.

Butterfly layered 4x6 card w/a strip of the 3 Girl JAM ribbon:
(again, lots of layers!)

3x4 Butterfly card with a simple knot of ribbon:

Thanks, Karen and 3 Girl JAM, for letting me Guest Design for you today!  It was a BLAST!!
