Shadow Box....

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! I am happy to share this great shadow box with you today! It is my day to be the featured designer for 3 Girl JAM! Today I have this fun shadow box that was featured on HSN for National Craft Day with DoCrafts.  I used DoCrafts great product line called Art Deco.  You may not be able to see this up close, however there are several layers to each piece.  For example the top right, her dress has a layer that has been pop dotted up to bring dimension. Each square has one or two pieces that are this way! But let's just say this what project is complete without a little yummy 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon?? 
The Shadow box is below
(I imagine if I was born in this era than this for sure would be Me and Midge LOL...)

Here are the products that were used

Be sure to come back tomorrow for some more fabulous inspiration!!

Madge's Embellishment Kit

Hello Friends! Today I am super excited to bring to you another embellishment kit from Madge's Scrappin Lounge!! There are several who participated in this fun crafty day, I will have the links at the bottom of the post so be sure to stop by all of their blogs/You Tube Channels and Facebook Pages to be eligable for the prize this month!!! But first lets see the kit shall we?

This kit is filled with some yummy products from Hazel and Ruby and Freckled Fawn!
You get a Card Pad from the Gone Typo line along with a great sticker sheet full of phrases and words and word bubbles.  You get a pack of Freckled Fawn flair buttons, puffy arrow stickers and some transparent decorative overlays.

This is what I created using this kit.  *Everything was included in the kit except for the12x12 cardstock and the alpha letters.

Here is my layout.  I took the card kit and made this fun layout.  I took one of the cards and laid it flat and then took another and cut the arrows that are going down the side and popped them up using pop dots.  I also took the rest of the card and used it as my background for my picture.  I used one of the flair buttons and placed it on a word bubble that I cut down to a square.

Here is a close up of the layout.

I also made this fun card for Action Wobbles using the great embellishment kit!

At the beginning of the month of February I asked for several crafters to help me with a fun 3 month embellishment trial.  These crafters are committed for 3 months, they are receiving my embellishment kits each month for $12.00 including Shipping! I had advertised for 5 crafters, however by the time we were done I am at 21 crafters! Each month many of these great crafters have chosen to showcase some fun projects using the Embellishment kit! Today March 10th is the day that we have chosen to share our projects! Some may be through Facebook Pages, some may be sharing through instagram or You Tube, others have blogs.... At the end of this post I will share everyones links to their pages and I would love for you to check them out!!! I am going to give a mystery pack away! How do I win, you are asking??? Simple check out all of the links that I have posted and leave them some love and come back here and comment that you did and YOU could be the winner! Winner will be chosen April 15th!
 I will be taking names for the waiting list for my embellishment kits, if you are interested in these kits please email me: Madge@thescrappinlounge.com or IM me on Facebook that you are interested.
