Wooo-Hooo Hop-a-Long and a Boy Card!

Today I'm participating in a Cross Promotional Blog Hop between 3GirlJam and Creative Inspirations Paint!  
If you've been playing along, you should have come to me from Emily's blog!

And if you just happened to be visiting me, well, Hi! But you'll want to start at the beginning to see all the wonderful projects we've put together for you today.

To start at the beginning:

I've been playing with these paints for a bit now and if you have seen some of my project over the last week or so, you'll see some of the paints in all of them.

My project is a boy project - somewhat difficult for me to do.

Funny thing, tho, my husband looked at it after I said it was a boy card and he said, "Well, it's got a fancy sports car on it...That is something I can see you enjoying!" 

I laughed, but it's true.  I'm a sucker for a fast and loud car.

Well, a little about the project.  My goal is Clean and Simple and BOY-ish.  Did it work?  And...I have been on a watercolor kick lately, which is grand considering I think the Creative Inspirations Paints work very well with watercoloring.

I used the wonderful 3GirlJam Crinkle Ribbon behind the main image.  It's from two different bundles:

I also used a few different paints on the card.
On the embossed yellow card stock behind the main image, I covered it with "Sunshine".  It gives it such a nice twinkle!

On the punched stars, I used "Blue Ice".  This is going on lots of holiday cards this year!
I also used this same paint over BIG. It really makes the word look like that wonderful metallic blue paint that has the little bitty sparkles in know like some of those hopped up street cars that the "cool" boys drive.

I really enjoyed this.  It was a good personal challenge for me, because I'm good with the frills and girly girl stuff, but find it difficult to make a boyish card (that doesn't include brown!)

I hope you liked it too!

So, there's a couple specials going on with this hop that I want you to be aware of (and participate in!).

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
Oh, guess what else is going on...
Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.

Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....

Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
