3 Girl JAM Anything Goes

Welcome to another 3 Girl JAM challenge. We had such a terrific turn out for our Christmas Inspiration challenge. We had 80 fabulous entries which means I will be giving away 8 bundles of 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon. The winners will be posted this weekend so be sure to check back.
So now onto challenge #9 "It's a New Year so Anything Goes"
Our sponsor for this challenge is...
For my Desktop Calendar I used the "Mini Calendar Handwriting" and "Bookworm" files and some 3 Girl JAM London Blue crinkle ribbon. My grandson will be taking this to his teacher when he goes back to school.
I also adhered some London Blue to the back side so that it would stay standing. The base is made with PTI coasters.
You will have until January 10th to link your project.

Papertrey December Blog Hop Challenge

This is the first time I have participated in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge or any of the challenges for PTI but that is one of my New Year's resolutions. I am positively addicted to their products, follow the blog and watch all the MIM tutorials but 2013 is the time to become more active.

For my card I used some of my new Christmas delivery.....the Leafy Vine Border die and the Framed Out #9 die and stamp set. I followed the MIM #50 tutorial to make this shaker card and just have to say that using fun foam is much easier then using all the foam circles.

Peace on Earth

Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope everyone has survived all the Christmas shopping and you are looking forward to spending some time with family. We have actually already celebrated with the grands because the 2 oldest will be with their dad for Christmas. They will be back to help us ring in the New Year though.
There are only 8 more days until another year is upon us. I made a tag to wish you all a little
"Peace on Earth"
in the New Year. The bows are made with some beautifully golden "Sunflower" crinkle ribbon. The sentiment is from Pink by Designs "Christmas Wishes" stamp set
When I was cutting this angel it didn't cut all the way through. I started to think it was meant for the scrap bin but after thinking on it some more I decide to start peeling the paper away from the angel, to see what would happen, and it turned out perfect. I then tore the edges and inked them up and totally love the way it turned out.
I am linking it up to Cheri's Tag Challenge.

Taste of Christmas Tag

Lately I have been getting some wonderful inspiration from my DT sister, Cheri from DJ's Sundries.
She is having a tag link up challenge on her blog.
I made a tag to attach to some yummy Christmas goodies this year.
I used the Merlot and Goblin Green crinkle ribbon. I know they are not the traditional holiday colors but don't they look irresistible and they match my tag perfectly. I also used a beautiful stick pin from our current challenge co-sponsor Pinque Peacock.
The sentiment is from Pink by Designs "Winter Fun" stamp set and the double ended banner die is from Papertrey Ink.
Be sure to link up all of your Christmas inspired projects below. For every 10 projects linked up I am giving away a bundle of 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon. You still have until December 27th so don't miss out.

Frosty the Snowmen

I hope you all have been hopping along our challenge/hop. Everyone has done such a wonderful job on their Christmas Inspiration.
So far this year we have not had but a dusting of the white stuff around here so there have been NO snowmen yet so I just had to make my own snow using some gorgeous Sterling crinkle ribbon. My snowmen also have a very beautiful ruby wand that they got from our sponsor this time "Pinque Peacock". The sentiment is from Pink by Designs "Christmas Wishes" stamp set.
Stay warm and Happy Crafting
Remember to link up all those Christmas projects below!!

Christmas Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Christmas Inspiration Blog Hop and Challenge.
If you have arrived here from my talented DT sister Rebecca then you are in the right place but if you just happened to be visiting my blog then head over to 3 Girl JAM so you don't miss out on all the fabulous Christmas projects everyone has made.
This year I have been seeing all kinds of wonderful information about "December Daily" albums. I had never heard of them before but have to say they are a pretty cool idea so I decided to give it a go.
The binding is packed full of beautiful "Holly Berry", "Mistletoe" and "Sterling" crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM. The beautiful Beaded Stick Pin and Fabric Flower are from our fabulous co-sponsor Pinque Peacock. All of the journal tags are from October Afternoon and were a wonderful gift from the super sweet Julie. They were such a perfect addition to the album.
Throughout the video below you will see the rest of my album.
You will also get to see the newest addition to the 3 Girl JAM store "Christmas Flair Buttons"

Your next stop on the hop is the amazingly talented Jessica.

Be sure to also head over to the 3 Girl JAM challenge blog and link up all of your Christmas projects.
