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 everything else is Stampin Up!
3GirlJAM is spreading the fun all around with a 20% discount (with >$10 purchase) through Sunday, so we can all get a little present!
Also, and this is the best part....there are a few of us in the hop that get to give some lucky person a Gift Certificate for free goodies.  Guess who is one of them? Yes, that's right...ME!
So, if you'd like a chance to win a certificate for product from 3GirlJAM, here's all you need to do:
(1) Comment on everyone's stop.
(2) Get an extra entry for liking 3GJ on Facebook
Simple, right?  I will pick a winner and post the result here on Monday morning!
Now, tell me something you like to do for your birthday in the comment section below! 

And then off you go to visit

Such a cute card! I hadn't thought to use the little clothespins on a card!

I just love relaxing with my little family, maybe going out to dinner for my birthday.

I've been commenting all along the way and will continue to! I also like 3girljam on fb :-)

Julie Odil said…
That ladybug is fantastic! (love the big clip you used to photo it with, too). Another great 'Bek' project - I'd expect no less!
Julie Odil said…
Oh, my birthday thought -- my birthday falls on a Saturday this year, so I won't have to work on it, although working in the nursing home on my birthday is actually loads of fun. I get birthday hugs all day and told how young I look -- great for the ego. This year, I'm hoping to go for a long motorcycle ride on my day.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. I

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures! I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover. Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun! The journal block comes from their September Kit . Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower . It's big and has many uses! To start at the beginning of the blog hop,
