Altered Mason Jar with Burlap and 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon

Hi Friends! I'm back with another 3 Girl JAM DT can also check out the post HERE on the 3GJ blog. I have a fun and easy altered project to share with all of you using some of the FAB 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon .

I also have a video that shows you the project up close along with the crinkle ribbons I used on this project....

I made this for one of my sisters-in-law as a thank you gift for having us over for Easter dinner on Sunday. She loved it!!

Here are the crinkle ribbons I used for this altered jar....
Merlot from the Wine & Jewels Bundle 
Antique White from the Pink & White Bundle
Halloween Harvest from the Seasons Bundle

Here are some additional photos of the altered mason jar....

I forgot to get a pic of Shelley with the jar when I gave it to her but she really loved it and said this was totally her style. Funny thing is that this jar was hers originally, she made us some homemade pickles for Christmas and this was the jar...haha. Just goes to show that you can use the 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon on home decor & gift items and altered projects as well : )

Thinking of You

Hi Friends! I have a special card to share with you today. This is for a good friend of mine who recently lost her mom. I wanted to send something to her that would let her know that I was thinking about her. I've lost a parent myself so I know the grief and how hard it is to move forward when something like this happens. 

I also have a video that shows you the card up close along with the products I used....

LOL...sorry I had to throw this one in here. She was looking at me like this when I was taking my pics of the card : )

I really love how this card turned out and I'm hoping my friend loves it as well and it brings her some comfort knowing that she has friends keeping her in their thoughts and prayers.

Nest~Altered Configuration Box

Hi Friends! Today I have a home decor project to share with all of you. Once in awhile I get around to making something for myself and/or my house so I am exited to share this with you. 

I used one of the TH configuration boxes to create a piece of wall art I call, Nest. 

I also have a video...this shows you the project up close as well as the many items I used to create this...

I have to say that photographing this was a bit of a challenge for me as I normally take pics in my craft room but there was a shadow from the lip of the box and it was a gorgeous sunny day here yesterday so I did my best :) 

I won't go into too much detail in the post since I go over it pretty well in the I'm just going to share some additional photos and the products I used...

I absolutely LOVE all the texture I achieved from the silver metallic material from Mon Ami Gabby along with the mini Cherry Blossoms stencil from The Crafters Workshop.

I haven't decided if I want to attach some burlap to this and use that as my hanger for the wall piece or if I want to attach some hardware to it. I kind of like the idea of just setting it on my mantle....guess I'll have to wait and see what speaks to me when I go to display it : )

Thanks so much for stopping by and for checking out another scrappy post. 

Happy crafting : )

May Arts Retro Color Craft Challentge-Altered Clock & Mini

Hi Friends. Boy do I have a fun post for you crafters today :)  I was lucky enough to again participate in another Craft Challenge from May Arts . The theme for this challenge is a Retro Color Craft Challenge and you can see my project along with the other crafters who were asked to participate HERE .

I altered one of the Tim Holtz Ideaology clocks and created a small mini to fit on the inside...
I also have a video that shows you the project up close along with the items I used (I will have a process video up on my YT channel later today so be sure to watch for that)....

I used a TON of texture and sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang on this clock and I really love how it turned out.

I was able to incorporate the 4 selections of May Arts ribbon on several elements of this clock. I even made a butterfly with some of the sequin trim. This was my first TH clock to alter and I can say it won't be my last :)

Be sure to check out all of the other creative projects over on the May Arts blog and don't forget to comment on the post while you're there. Bethney will select one winner from the comments to win a spool of their choice from May Arts. Pretty easy way to win a spool of their fab ribbon if you ask me : )

Thanks for checking out another ScrappinAbby post and for stopping by the blog today. I'll be posting another 3GJ DT project on my blog as well as the 3 Girl JAM Blog tomorrow so be sure to come back & see what I created with the yummy 3GJ goodies.
