3GJ Christmas Inspiration Hop

Hello all, Welcome to the 3GJ Christmas Inspiration Hop! This hop is a fun one because we are pairing up with Heather Lynn from Pinque Peacock. Great new store, you can check it out HERE.
I hope you came from Cheri, if you're just stopping by you can start at the being HERE.

This Hop is all about Christmas, there are some great giveaways on this hop! The Blog Hop will be open for comments through Sunday Dec 9. and the winners will be announced on Wed Dec 12th. Prizes will be a $15.00 GC to 3GJ and a $15.00 GC to Pinque Peacock. There will also be a challenge with some AWESOME giveaways!

Ok, onto my projects, yes more then one! I saw this cool bag on Gigi (the cricut bug) blog the other day and knew I had to make one. Making the bag was a lot of fun! I used paper from Festiva Recollections pad. The 3 Girl JAM ribbon is Holly Berry from the Winter bundle. I really LOVE this red! I bunched the ribbon at the bottom of the bag and around the sentiment. The sentiment is from Scrappymoms. I used a FABULOUS pin from Pinque Peacock. I also added some goblin green ribbon to the top. I think this came out so cute. Here is the link to a tutorial on how to make the bags HERE.


I made a box for some cake balls.  I used the same ribbon, papers and sentiment as the first project. 

Last I made a card for the challenge at the end of the hop. I used a cute little snowman from Winter Frolic cricut cart. I added a peachy keen face.  The ribbon for the snow hills is from the Baby bundle

I hope you enjoy the hop and my projects today!  Next up on the hop is the AWESOME Jessica.
