No Words Needed

Sometimes, no words are needed on a card front.
All your heart felt thoughts and sentiments can be hand written on the inside.
Be sure to use the luscious crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM along with other embellishments to make a great impact!

Here I used Cherry Lipstick from the Pink and White Bundle.
Be sure to check out the new bundles in the store. 
The color are amazing!
You'll want to add one of each to your basket!!

I also used Micro Glue Dots ® to secure a loose rhinestone...and Permanent Dots to secure the crinkle ribbon bow!
Thanks for joining me today.  Be sure to check out other designs at the 3 Girl JAM blog.


Bubbling over...

Last week, I was at the Great Lakes something something, GIGANTIC scrapbook expo...working in the Eyelet Outlet Booth.  While it was such hard work, it was so enjoyable! I loved chatting up and promoting their embellishments.

Here I used some of Eyelet Outlet Washi Tape...to make the heart.  After adding strips on a piece of paper, I cut out the heart using nestabilities.  Then, I layered it all together!  
I love this sea foam acrylic dots and stars.  The bling strip grounds my Pretty Cute Stamp image and sentiment.  The Mad Scientist set is great for school, romance...and even silliness!  I used a bit of Pop Up Relief Dots from Glue Dots ® to add dimension to the beaker.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hop you enjoy your week!
I'll enjoy putting my feet up while I stamp this week...instead of selling embellishments!

Will you be at our next hop? 
You won't want to miss it!!

Thinking of Dear Ol' Dad!

Father's Day is right around the corner.
What does your dad or other father figure enjoy?
There are probably brads in that theme  in the Eyelet Outlet shop!

Is your dad a fisherman or boater?
A bit of twill and netting is a great back drop for the nautical brads and ocean brads.


Or perhaps, 
your father is the gardening type!

Not so Red, White, & Blue...

Hi Creative Peeps!  Today I decided to use crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM's 
But...nothing patriotic or summery!

I also wanted to create something using a fancy fold..but quickly.  I love this "piano hinge fold," as I like to call it.  After scoring your card as usual, make another score line on the top of the card front...about an inch down.  

Use 3Girl JAM's crinkle ribbon...or jute string...to bind your card together. Punch 2 holes through your card in this top area...then thread your desired ribbon through. Finish it off with a bow...or a knot!

A dainty fox is so happy with her splash of red crinkle ribbon!
It plays well with the red washi tape!
You can see the rest of this awesome Forest Friends set at
Pretty Cute Stamps.  All the amazing bling can be found at the Eyelet Outlet!

I have been enjoying this large sticky backed bling!

Here is a piano hinge fold on the side, instead of the top.  
How do you like red, white, & blue..and a bit of pink! 
A nice change from summer and patriotism, don't you think!

The cupcake and bling strips can be found at the Eyelet Outlet as well.
And the "Cutie" sentiment comes from Pretty Cute Stamps: Hamster Cutie.

4 Square

Here is a great way to kick start your stamping mojo...
Use a classic layout.
Here, I created 2 cards using the "four square" layout. 
But each card is a little different.

Sometimes the sentiment is highlighted,
as it is here in this card which uses Pretty Cute Stamps: Bushels of Fun set.
I just love gingham! 
and eyelets...and kraft...and sequins...

Or, you can repeat an image...
a nice graphic look...
This card features the Forest Friends set.

Of course, colors, patterns, and shapes of each panel also change the look of the card!
Thanks so much for hopping in and joining us today!

Mad for Gingham

I used some treats from my Pocket Pal from Germany, Alexandra,
to create this sweet card. The sentiment is from Pretty Cute Stamps!

Also, lots of Glue Dots...
