For Your Special Day

Hi Friends! Abby here and today I have another 3GJ DT project to share with all of you. My Mother-in-Law is getting remarried this weekend and I wanted to use some of the yummy new Distress Lace on her card. She didn't want a bridal shower per say so all of us daughters-in-law (there are 5 of us) are getting together to honor her with a dinner and some small personal gifts. I'm using more of the 3GJ goodies on her packaging so be sure to check out my blog for those project photos. 

I also have a short video that shows you the card up close along with the Distress Lace I used on the project.......

This lace is the perfect touch of femininity for this bridal card. 

I think my Mother-in-Law is going to LOVE this card. She loves lace and the 3 Girl JAM lace is simply gorgeous and adds so much softness, texture and dimension to the card. 

Be sure to shop at the 3GJ Store , the Distress Lace is on sale right now so it's the perfect time to grab some for yourself and use it in your crafting projects. Also if you enter this discount code upon checkout: AH10, you'll receive 10% off your total purchase. How cool is that???

Thanks for stopping by today and for checking out another ScrappinAbby post. I have a lot of projects I'm working on and catching up on now that I'm back to crafting post double hand surgery so be sure to keep checking back :)

Happy Crafting!!

Altered Mini Journal with Ribbon & Lace

Hi Friends! I am so excited to be sharing another fun project with all of you using some of the yummy 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon and the new Lace Bundles that are now available at the 3GJ Store . This is my first 3GJ post/project in two months, I've been recovering from hand surgery (both hands) and I was so excited to play with the new yummy laces Julie has created. I used it to decorate the spine in my altered mini journal...

I also have a short video that shows you the journal up close along with the crinkle ribbons and laces I used on the project....

Here are some additional photos of the journal...

 I love how this gorgeous lace looks against the script on this journal. There are so many uses for the new laces in your craft projects. 

Such a fun project to create. I made this for my "work mom" as she helped with a lot of my tasks at work while I was out on medical leave so I wanted to make something special for her. Using the new laces really added that special touch to this journal and I can't wait to give it to her. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for checking out another ScrappinAbby project. Be sure to stop by the 3 Girl JAM store and pick up some of the yummy new laces and other goodies available for yourself. 

Happy Crafting : )

This weekend we are celebrating Ashley's 21st Birthday with some fun and creative, birthday/alcohol-themed projects! It's not 21 without a drink or two, right?!

I remember my 21st birthday (just a few short years ago...honest lol). I celebrated with a girlfriend of mine and we went on a Caribbean cruise. I'd always wanted to visit Jamaica and so I did just that. It was an amazing vacation and I will always remember it. 

I was so happy when Ashley asked me to be a part of her Birthday Hop!! She is a such a sweetheart and I first met her when I joined her Design Team, Made Especially For You, a few years back. She is very creative & talented and I'm so glad I met her!!! 

Happy Birthday Miss Ashley...Love Ya!!!
I made Ashley a Tri-Fold Tag Birthday Card. I wanted to make it with some of her favorite colors (I mean it's her birthday after all right??) I have a short video that shows you the project up close so be sure to watch for that after the first few photos :)
