Nice to Meet You blog Hop with 3 Girl Jam!

** Comments closed at 84**

Welcome to the Nice to Meet You Blog Hop! What a fun way to meet the new 3 Girl Jam Design Team!

 So glad you hopped on over! If you hopped over here from Gloria's blog  Oma's Crafts  then you are in the right place! If not stop on over to Julie's Blog A Little Bit of Bling and start hopping from the start! You don't want to miss any of the super awesome projects and 3 Girl Jam is offering blog candy along each stop along the way and a chance to win a grand prize!!


For those that don't know me, I'm Carri also known as abusybee. I started my blog in May 2009,  I enjoy being creative, spending time making cards and hopping around to see what my creative friends are doing. I am super excited to be joining the 3 Girl Jam Design Team! I would always use my ribbon iron and press it free of any wrinkles then worry about the indents from me twisting and turning it. So when 3 Girl Jam came out with crinkle ribbon it was like a dream come true for me! I am able to create more freely with out the worry of wrinkling the ribbon! 

 I love to change up my crafting style and go between cute and distressed. I built my entire card around this flower I was able to create using 3 Girl Jam Crinkle Ribbon!

  7. Hi Carri! I am so with you on wanting my ribbon to be free of wrinkles but seeing the awesome projects made with the crinkle ribbon has changed my whole perspective! I have never used crinkle ribbon before and SO want to try it. That is a beautiful flower you created there!! I think the "wrinkles" add charm and realism to them!! So excited about these new products!! msmith38652@gmail.com
