3 Girl JAM's First Design Team!!!!!

I am busting at the seams excited to tell everyone that I am now part of 3 Girl JAM's very first design team!!! This is a wonderful family business, run by a super sweet and crafty lady and her 2 daughters. I first fell in love with their crinkle ribbon when I was part of their grand opening blog hop. There are so many pretty colors to choose from! It is such a huge honor to be part of such a creative and inspirational group of crafters. Head over to the 3 Girl JAM blog and check out all the other design team members and give them all a huge congratulations!!!
Here are a couple of lunchbox cards I made, for the grandkids, using 3 Girl JAM "Baby Bundle" crinkle ribbon, Papertrey Ink's Zipper Die and Pink by Design's "Love Always" stamp set.
I do not know why this picture is so dark but I will try to get a better one tomorrow.

Lunch Sack Purse

Alex from You had me at Craft was the guest designer on My Pink Stamper and she made the cutest little purse out of a lunch sack. I just had to follow along with her video and am so glad I did because it turned out absolutely adorable. This was made for a little girl so I didn't want to add too many embellishments.

Operation Organization

Well I have spent the last week trying to get my craft room somewhat organized. It is almost done except for a few odds and ends.

One of the things I did, to organize some of the twine I have and get ready for my new Trendy Twine, is make some spools to hold it. If anyone would like the SCAL file for these spools you can leave me a comment with your email and I will send it to you. I do not know how to make it so anyone can download it.
 12 of them will fit on a 12 x 12 mat.
 I ran 1/3 of them through my Xyron twice so that each side was covered with adhesive.
 Then I adhered another spool to each side so it would be 3 layers thick.
Wrap your twine and see how pretty and organized it is.

Double Twisted Easel Lunchbox Notes

I really hope I haven't completely messed everything up.  A few days ago I switched to a custom domain through Google to get rid of the .blogspot. Well I posted today but the post doesn't show up on my dashboard or in my google reader. The last post that shows is "Not Old... Vintage"

The post does show on my blog but I am afraid that my followers are not going to see my posts and think I dropped off the face of the earth. :-(

Does anyone have any advice on what I might be doing wrong or how I can fix it??? Please help!!!

Ok on to another project for today. Since the grandkids go back to school tomorrow after their Spring Break I made some more lunchbox notes. These are so super simple and turn out looking awesome. Just 3 scores and 1 cut, a little embellishing and you are done. Here is a VIDEO. I started out with 4x4, 3x3 and 2x2 squares.

Don't Flip Out

Our Hobby Lobby just got in 2 new Sizzix dies and I think they are so cool. They are called Flip-Its dies. I do realize that these can be made without the dies but they are sooooo much easier with no measuring and no messing up with the dies.

Not Old. . . Vintage

All the treats on the Yummy Imagine cartridge look good enough to eat and every time I look through the handbook I probably gain 5 pounds...but oh is it worth it. I won this cartridge on Rosie's birthday blog hop and absolutely love everything about it.

Time to play again!

Wow every year I forget how much of a pain tax time is. I would rather be creating so I put off work til the last minute but it is now done and I am back to playing. I worked super fast because Jinger is having a Design Team Call this month and I was just itching to get started on a project to submit. Can you just imagine how fun it would be to be part of her DT?? Uh-maz-ing!!

On to my project... If you have been reading my blog you may have guessed that my 2 favorite paper crafting loves are cards and 3-D projects. Well here is a very pretty 3-D box.
