Ballerina Thank You #2 - 3GJ dt

Today I have another ballerina thank you card to share with you that I made using some wonderful 3 Girl JAM products.  I used "grey gray" crinkle ribbon from the 3GJ "LG" bundle to make a ribbon and glued a rhinestone gem in the center. At the bottom corner of my card I attached a flower that I made with some 3GJ "distressed lace" and glued a 3GJ vintage button in the center of it.  Again this card was made to thank some of the wonderful people who helped make it possible for my daughter and I to go to a dance intensive in Texas recently.


The stamp I used is an old rubber stamp from D.O.T.S. (pre-close to my heart).  I am still working on my coloring skills with copics and spectrum noir markers.  The sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps "Ticket Talk".  Thanks for stopping by today. Don't forget to use code NE10 to receive an additional 10% off of your 3 Girl JAM purchases.

digital stamp - The Alley Way (I think it is a retired freebie)
sentiment - SRM stickers
designer paper - Doodlebug "Sugar Shoppe"
enamel dots, flowers - Recollections

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Hot, Hot, Hot" blog hop where the design team is showcasing projects using PPPR files centered around the theme of anything to do with HOT.  You should have arrived here after visitng the lovely Nanne.  If you missed the start of the hop, you will want to head over to Lisa's blog (there is a special freebie file for the hop that you can get there!)

I decided to go with more of a "clean and simple" design for my project.

Supplies used ~

C'est La Vie Mini Album - 3GJ dt


Hi guys and thanks for stopping by today!!  I have a mini album to share with you that I made for one of my dance student's graduation gift.  My student is going to France for a year abroad and I thought she could use this as a keepsake album afterwards.  This is only my 2nd ever mini album and I have to say even though they are time consuming, they are lots of fun and I hope to make several more in the near future!!

I used the following 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon colors for my album - daffodil from the Spring Flowers bundle, baby boy from the Baby bundle, and aqua splash from the Carribean Splash bundle. I just fed them through an eyelet and tied them into a big, floppy bow.  I have included a few pictures as well as a video of my album for you to look at.







Okay, this is my first time ever doing a video and I definitely need a lot of work.  I never realized how much work videos are to make - I so appreciate all of you that make them and share such great tutorials with all of us!!  My youngest daughter recorded me on my ipod as my husband was furiously sanding down cabinet doors in the basement below so you may hear that background noise.



The paper I used for this album is Bo Bunny "C'est La Vie".  I used up a whole 6x6 pad as well as a few sheets of 12 x 12 and the sticker collection.  My album is based off of a tutorial by Cassie Keith which you can find HERE.  Thanks for taking the time to stop by today!!
