Talk Time Tuesday with Ask Jo~

Hello My lovelies!
How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun or crafty? In the midst of the crazy week here on the blog this past week, I have managed to get through some emails that have been sitting in my inbox for quite some time and came across a few 'Ask Jo' questions. So I figured a Talk Time Tuesday post was needed! =)
   Our first question comes from Brenda who asks, "How did you pick your name of 3 Twenty?"

 Hi Brenda!!

You are the first person to ask this question and the answer is very simple and very meaningful to me. For those who know me on a personal level, know that my grandfather was my rock. He helped my mom raise me and he was in every sense of the word, my father. So I was blessed to have him in my life as he played double roles for me, a grandfather and a father. I loved him so very much. I still do. But I lost him tragically nearly 5 years ago. May 1st will be 5 years since he's been gone.
When I decided to go into business, I knew that I wanted a business name that would mean something to me, that would be close to home. Since my grandfather was a HUGE part of my life I wanted to include him in my business name. His birthday was March 20th, March being the 3rd month, 20 being the day hence the name 3 Twenty. So that is how 3 Twenty Crafts got its name. Thanks so much for your question Brenda!

Next I have a question from Sherrie....who asks, "What do you do with all your projects you make??? Do you sell them at craft ows, give them away or create to sell?"

Hi Sherrie!
Most of the projects I make are usually given away as gifts to family or friends. I like to make projects for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries or Holidays. I seem to find myself making more cards then anything though and with the cards I make, I will keep some that are inspirational to me and spread them around my craft room on shelves and other cards I keep in a file box with dividers for those last minute "Oh I need a card for so and so" and for those times when something pops up and you need a card quickly. I also like to send cards to my crafty friends just to let them know I am thinking about them. I have never sold any of my cards but I've been told that I should by a few people. Thanks so much for writing in to Ask Jo and I would love to hear what you do with your projects that you create. =)
 Well my friends that is all I have for today.  I hope you have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by and until next time.... Enjoy life's blessings~

3 Twenty Craft's Exclusive 'Say it in Spanish' Stamp Set



Hello friends!!

Welcome to  3 Twenty Crafts Mini Blog Hop to show you an exclusive set and the last & final stamp set of the 2nd release. When I was in high school, I took four years of Spanish and I have carried that with me through the years. I find that the Spanish language has become so popular over the years that it has become the second speaking language in the United States and will eventually become the number one language in the future. So with that being said... let me introduce you to...

 “'Say it in Spanish'
This set caters to our Spanish families and all those who speak the language. For those of you who speak it, understand it or know someone who does, I hope you enjoy this set.

I used this set to decorate a cute little kraft bag that I am going to give to my mom in August for her birthday. I figure this bag will be a cute package for a card and gift card or some money.

From the set I used four stamps. The cake, a single candle to create a background, and two sentiments; "Para Usted"(for you) & "Feliz Cumpleanos" (Happy Birthday).
Here I used alcohol inks to create a rustic-tarnish looking doilie and stamped "Para Usted" and then added some dots with my black pen, just to give it a fun look. The doilie is also embellished with some enamel dots from Bo Bunny, a wood veneer arrow that I painted red and some faux stitching.
The cake was stamped on bazzill cardstock and colored in using my inktense pencils and then colored over again using my star dust glitter pen. It is on some foam tape for dimension and adhered to a piece of light chevron patterned paper that I also created a candle pattern on top using one of the single candles from the set. I colored in the candles and again added shimmer with the glitter pen. I used a cut apart piece of 6x6 calendar paper for the month of August and highlighted my mom's birthday using another enamel dot. The heart is another wood veneer piece that I painted.
Under the calendar I stamped "feliz cumpleanos" and added a cute word bubble that I fussy cut from the same paper as the light chevron. All the papers that I used are from the Simple Stories 24 Seven Collection. I really enjoy their collections as it is perfect for scrapbooks, project life, cards and more. Love the fun patterns and bold colors. I added another arrow pointing to the sentiment and added some faux stitching. All my edges and the paper bag were inked using some vintage photo distress ink. Well friends, that is my project using 'Say it in Spanish'
To win todays stamp set “Say it in Spanish, make sure to visit the design team gals in this mini hop (I believe there are only 4) and leave a comment. You have until midnight tonight CST. The winner will be chosen randomly and will be announced tomorrow with the rest of the winners from this week's release hop.
This stamp set is now available in the store along with the rest of the stamp sets from the release. You can order yours here.
So are you ready to visit your first stop on the mini hop?
 As you move along, you will now stop by to see the ever-so-talented Candice.  Keep in mind to come back here if you get lost to start at the beginning! Have fun hopping & until next time, enjoy life's blessings!
