3GJ Beautiful Bows Hop

Welcome to the 3 Girl JAM Beautiful Bows blog hop!
We are so excited that you are here!!
If you just happened to stop by, make sure you go to 3 Girl JAM to start the Hop.
There's so much excitement in our household over the new Bow Makers that are available now.
A and M are excited because they can make beautiful bows now (even more beautiful than they already could!), and even Mr. Bling is excited because he was able to get a little crafty on the production side of things!

For my project, I made a little mini-album card.


First, I made some background paper with the Pink by Design Big Hexagon stamp set.  I used the new Tim Holtz Summer Distress Ink set *love*.  I used a sentiment (also PBD) and cut around it and layered it twice- inking the edges as I went.

The inside contains 4 pages for pictures, doodling, notes, or anything at all!
I decorated the pages with more PBD stamps (The Life You Imagined) and Washi Tape!

The mini was put together by punching holes through all the papers and running some Goblin Green and Sunflower 3GJ ribbon through.
I tied a double bow with 2 ribbons with the pegs in holes 1 and 4.  This made a larger 4 loop bow.


Isn't that FUN!

I have some blog candy today too!
One person who follows 3 Girl JAM and A Little Bit of Bling and comments below, will win the project that I created for today as well as the Red, White, and Blue Crinkle Ribbon Bundle (which is almost sold out!).

  16. I love the mixture of colors and patterns. I also learned something. Like most I have inked my edges, but I notice you used a different COLOR ink on each layer! I never thought to do that, but I will now!
