BE Inspired 23

Friday, March 1, 2013

Today is the BE Inspired challenge over at The Alley Way Stamps blog and this week there is an extra twist!  For this challenge we are joining forces with the lovely ladies at 3 Girl JAM!  For those of you that don't know, 3 Girl JAM is owned and operated by Julie K Bling and her two daughters.  They make hand dyed crinkle ribbon and sell some other fun crafty things.  You can check it all out here.

Your challenge is to make a project using this BE Inspired photo, a stamp (or two) from The Alley Way Stamps and ribbon!  Remember the photo is for inspiration only.  Be creative, use your imagination and show us what this photo inspired you to create. And if you need some inspiration, hop on through the line-up and see all the gorgeous projects the design teams have created.



I took my cues from some of the colors in the photo.  I've always been inspired by earthy colors so it was no trouble at all to dig out Sahara Sand, Early Espresso and Cajun Craze.  I stamped the sentiment from the brand new Words to Live By and to jazz things up I added a pop of Pacific Point and some of the awesome 3 Girl JAM crinkly ribbon in yellow.  This cool layout is courtesy of a sketch challenge I just found called Lucy's Cards that is sadly ending.  


I hope you are inspired to join in The Alley Way Stamps and 3 Girl JAM challenges.  Don't forget to check them out and link up your project, because you'll have a chance to win some awesome prizes!  Just hop on over to Scrappin' Madge to continue on the hop!
