Carribean Splash "FABULOUS" release

Hello all, I'm here today with two cards for 3 girl JAM "Carribean Splash" bundle release.  This is my FAVORITE set...I LOVE these two colors!  I couldn't wait to make some cards with them!  For my first card I'm using a image from RJD called "Sharp Girl". Isn't she so "SHARP"...LOL!  I colored her with promarkers.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC. I used papers from DCWV "Fresh Linen" stack.  That stack is PREFECT for the Aqua Splash ribbon.  I bunched the ribbon for a strip and made a circle flower.  Carri has a great tutorial on how to make the flowers at  3 girl JAM blog.
For my next card I used the Forever Young cricut cart.  I have been dying to try this ribbon technique every since I seen it on Southern Belle's blog.  I knew the Coral Crush was PREFECT!  The sentiment is from PTI. I'm entering this card in  Terrific Tuesday "Forever Young" cart challenge.
 I really love this new ribbon and these two cards. There are some specials going on all through May. You can get this new bundle for ONLY $4.49 plus shipping. You should go over and check at all the specials! You definitely need to get this NEW bundle!

Happy Happy Birthday

Hello all, I'm here today with my last GDT over at The Corrosive Challenge Blog.  I'm sad it's over but so happy I had this opportunity!  I got some AWESOME images and had a WONDERFUL time!  The challenge for the next two weeks is "The man, the myth, the legend - Tim Holtz" (use at least one TH product on your creation).  I don't own much Tim Holtz stuff, I'm not a distress/vintage/rustic/grunge girl...LOL!  I do LOVE those seasonal inks that keep coming out and the embossing ink!  
For this card I got to use a Tickled Pink image (the sponsor for May) image called Party Pinkette Coraline.  I just LOVE her, I colored her with promarkers.  I used Tim Holtz "Seedless Preserves" distress ink to ink the edges and the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Scrappymoms. I also used a Tim Holtz embossing folder called Swirls. I really enjoyed my time with Corrosive Challenge and hope you stop by and play in the challenge.

Go Team

Hello all, Happy Friday!  It's another FFF over at Paper Craft Planet.  This week's freebie is Rah Rah Rhonda, with a challenge of "Varsity Letter". Be sure to stop by Paper Craft Planet to pick up this fabulous freebie because it'll only be available for 24 hours. 
Rhonda was colored with promarkers.  I've been wanting to make twine pom poms for sometime...what better time!  Go Team was cut from 3 Birds on Parade cricut cart. I used Joy's Life stamps on the ticket strip.  It was hard not using purple...LOL!  But, I love this fun PINK card!

For my card I used the cute little Penelope's Party Wagon. She was colored with promarkers.  I used a MS punch around the page and added some flowers.  I wanted the card to be simple, since the image is so darn cute!

BABY


Hello all, Happy Monday to you!  Today is my first 3 girl JAM post...YAY!  I'm so excited to show you my project. 
For my card I'm using Baby Boy crinkled ribbon.  If you know me, you know I LOVE to bunch my ribbon, and what better ribbon than 3 girl JAM crinkled ribbon!  I also used the new AWESOME twine called Sky Blue on the button. This twine is GREAT, it's thicker then most twine out there and you get a great sample of them all!  You should go over and check it out. 
It was fun making this card! I haven't used my cricut this much in a long time.  I used Once Upon a Princess for the frames, Baby Steps and New Arrival for the baby pieces.  I don't know where the font is from(SORRY). I think this is a great card for someone who just had a boy! I think I might make a girl version. I hope you enjoy my project!

Life...

Hello all, I'm here today with an AMAZING preview of a new SSD image called "Elizabeth Laura Bennett". Some of you may know who she is from movies and books like "Pride and Prejudice". The Laura part is from a SSD fan who suggested her.  How cool is that? I would love a SSD image with my name in it! 
For this card I colored her with promarkers.  I used papers from DCWV Cafe Mediterranean stack. The sentiment is from PBD.  I used some flowers sent to me from a dear blog friend and colored them with promarkers to get the colors I wanted.  I added pearls to her to look like a necklace also all around the card. I hope you stop by SSD to see all the previews and follow the rest of the week for more previews. Saturday will be the release day with a GREAT blog hop!  
I will be entering this card in Little Scrap Pieces Flower Challenge.

Nice to Meet You "Blog Hop"

Hello all,  Welcome to the Nice to Meet You blog Hop. 
As some of you know this is 3 Girl JAM's first EVER Design Team!  It is such an honor to be on the FIRST team!  In this hop you will get to know the DT and see some AWESOME projects using 3 Girl Jam products.  Now if you have arrived here from Angie then you are on the right track. If you just stopped by and you want to hop start at the beginning here.


 About me: My name is Jovan Brooks. I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 15 years.  I'm a stay at home mom of three, two boys and a lovely girl.  I just recently moved to Colorado.  I'm a midwestern girl but I'm loving the mountain scenery.  I've been crafting off and on for 14 years.  I started my first and ONLY scrapbook after my first son was born. I loved it but was spending a lot of money on one book, so I stopped. I would make stuff here and there, but nothing too much.  In 2009 I was doing the invitations for my cousin's wedding and saw a cricut at a local scrapbook store and knew I had to have one.  I then became HOOKED on making cards. I have been making cards consistently for 3 years and absolutely love it!   I now have a whole room reflecting my addiction...LOL 

My favorite thing to use on cards is ribbon.  My favorite technique is bunching ribbon and crinkled ribbon is the best for that.  I just knew that 3 Girl JAM was a prefect match for me!  I made two cards, one is showcasing my FAVORITE technique and the other is showcasing this AWESOME new product in the store "Canvas Border Strips".

This card is using my FAVORITE color crinkled ribbon "Witches Brew". I used cardstock from DCWV "Cherry Limeade" stack. The sentiment is from PBD Happy Birthday set. It was a lot of fun making the flower and using this ribbon. 



This card is using the new Canvas Border Stirps. I wanted to make something clean and simple. I used a cocktail from Taylor Expressions.  The sentiment is from Skipping Stones. I really LOVE this "Canvas Border Strip" and can't wait to make more cards with it!  I hope you enjoy this hop!

OH WAIT...what's a hop without some Blog Candy??? Today I'm giving away 2 packages (2 per pack)  Adhesive Backed Canvas Strips. LOVE THEM!  All you need to do is leave a comment.  I will announce a winner on Sunday.  



Also there will be a Grand Prize Drawing

1.) Crinkle Ribbon Total Package (Bundles 1-6)
