Thank you so much for hopping with us today and thank you, Julie, for having me join in this hop!!  I have made 4 different projects to share with you using 3 Girl JAM and Pinque Peacock goodies! Here's what I came up with...........




For this card I used 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon in Holly Berry, Pinque Peacock Fabric Covered Button, stamp by Unity, EK Success tree punch,  and some pretty patterned papers. I fussy cut the little snow people out of the patterned paper and hand cut a heart out of fabric to add to the button.


For this card I used 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon in Aqua Splash, a tiny Pinque Peacock flower, Unity stamps, patterned papers, and some pretty orange square jewels. I just love that little penguin!!


For this card I used a large Pinque Peacock Fabric Covered Button, 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon in Aqua Splash and Holly Berry, patterned papers, Kraft cardstock, Stickles,  and Unity Stamps. (Thanks, Jessica, for letting me craft with you and use your Unity stamps and cute papers!!)  I am entering this card in the "SNOW" challenge # 137 over at  Craft Your Passion Challenge Blog.


For my last project, I had picked up a wooden frame from Goodwill for 35 cents (a while back) and I painted it red. Then I sprayed it with silver glitter spray paint. I then covered the board with 3 Girl JAM burlap. I added lots of buttons with hot glue and used a couple of the Christmas Flair buttons by 3 Girl JAM. I just love them!! I used the 3 Girl JAM bow maker to make the tiny crinkle ribbon bow (in Mistletoe) that I added to the top. The pretty red flower is by us at Pinque Peacock. I added a few other embellishments and voila..my button art was done! This was so much fun to make!  


I hope you like my projects today! I am so happy you stopped by! I hope you are getting in the Christmas crafty spirit!
