All Things Spring at 3 Girl JAM

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome to the 3 Girl JAM All Things Spring Blog Hop. You should be joining me from the 3 Girl JAM blog. If not be sure to start at the beginning and then hop on through to see all the amazing Spring projects. 
Today begins a new challenge at 3 Girl JAM and a new ribbon release is being showcased. Here in Florida many of the trees are beginning to bloom and they sure do look pretty...there are LOTS of flowers! They smell wonderful too!

The newly released LG Bundle ~ 
(only $4.97 for 8 yards and you can use Spring25 for a discount)

This crinkle ribbon is super easy to bunch, tie bows, or you can make your own flowers. I added a stick pin with green beads that I created.

I found this box in my stash (actually it was a pack of 6)...something I bought at Michaels when it was on clearance for 70% off. I added the LG ribbon on each side, then cut and assembled the Spring flower. I love all the layers! I used a quilling pen to roll the center flower piece. It helps keep a tight roll and prevents unraveling.
A small stamped tag was adhered to the green leaf making it a perfect gift for anyone.

  1. I love your spring tree G! The flowers are the perfect and touch! And loving your stick pin!! I need to dust off Flower Shoppe, I forgot how many nice flowers are on it! We don't really have spring here, so I miss that! Carri~Abusybee

  2. I love your two projects that ribbon crinkled on the card is just yummy! I love this color combination and your stick pin is super cute! Spring what is that? It is still cold and yukky here... I do love once we get the first rain and it washes away all of the nasty dirt from winter and everything is all clean and fresh.

  3. These are all very cute projects! The box is perfect, as is the matchbook!

  4. Cute card and I love that box!! Awesome stickpin. Spring? Our weather has been kind of crazy here. I thought we were having spring and I planted some tomatoes and banana peppers and what happens - we get a light freeze here. So had to cover it up and now we are having warm temps again and lots of rain. Crazy weather.But what I love about spring is warmer temps and seeing green.

  5. Georgiana, you are rocking that Silhouette! Your projects are fantastic! I'm especially impressed with your stickpin holder and handmade stickpins to match the ribbon. Awesome!

  6. What AMAZING projects!!! I love how your tree actually makes me think I am smelling the flowering tress...which brings me to what I like about Spring. I love the newness of EVERYTHING...from the budding trees to the first peek of my Grape Hycianths to the smattering of green across the land. Again, I love BOTH your projects...and I am going to try using my quill next time I do a center for my flowers. Thanks for sharing...and for the inspiration!!!

  10. Your card is so pretty, the way you added the pleated ribbon and bow is just beautiful. Plus the stickpin is the absolute perfect touch, and that you created it is simply amazing. Your box is beautiful too! My favorite thing about spring is the new life that we see everywhere.

  15. What a terrific array of sweet Spring projects! Love the blossoms on that tree. Adore the sweet altered box with the ribbon and fabulous flower! Well Done!

  16. You are just FULL of Spring surprises here Georgiana. Your tree is just right with the pretty blooms and the grey/gray ribbon looks so nice added to your lime bow and pretty stick pin. I LOVE the box, how fun is it when we get to use some of the "great deals" we stock up on! What a fun give away you're having too, your pins are GREAT and your little holder is awesome. Happy Spring crafty lady! Glad to be hopping with you this weekend. ~Donna K

  17. Your card is so sweet. It shows some of what I like about Spring. Living in NY everything is pretty much bare. When Spring comes I hear the birds more clearly(they sound so happy), the trees start sprouting, flowers start blooming and most of all; warmer weather. I really dislike layering myself!

  18. Your projects are so beautiful!! I love the blooms on the tree!! The flower on the box is fabulous!! I love, love the colors of the ribbon!! Awesome projects!! Have a great weekend :)

  35. Great projects Georgianna. I really like the gorgeous box. It matches Grey Gray so well. TFS.

  36. Wow! Great projects! Spring where I live is known as "End of Winter" & "Mud Season" so there isn't too much to see thats actually pretty, but when flowers come up through the snow, well that's pretty AMAZING! That's my favorite♥

  37. Georgiana ~ What GORGEOUS creations you have here! I LOVE this color combination! The card and both the little boxes are so PERFECT!!!

  38. Your card, gift box and pin holder are wonderful. What a great way showcase this pretty ribbon.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Crafty hugs,

  39. Apparently I haven't visited it way too long! I adore that tree card and that scrumptious ribbon. That box purse is very nifty too. That's a smart idea to use the quilling tool for a tight roll on that flower.


Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I am looking forward to visiting you!
