TAWS BE Inspired with 3 Girl Jam!

Welcome to the 3GJ/TAWS Cross Promotion Double Challenge Blog Hop!

The goal of this cross promo/double challenge is to introduce you all to 2 awesome companies, gather inspiration from both design teams and have the opportunity to enter 2 fun challenges!

I am on the design team for The Alley Way Stamps . For this week, we are teaming up with the design team at 3 Girl JAM which is owned and operated by the talented Julie K Bling and her 2 daughters. They make the most beautiful hand dyed crinkle ribbon and fun flair buttons - you can check out my button card here.

Every 2 weeks TAWS has a new challenge based on a fun photo called "Be Inspired" and 3GJ has their own challenge using 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon, so for this challenge the design teams are using the TAWS photo AND some great ribbon!!

Miss You

I can't say that it originally occurred to me to make a masculine card with this luscious ribbon - but I think it works - and here's the inspiration photo that led me in this direction.

YOUR challenge will be to come up with a project using THIS photo, a stamp and ribbon. Remember the photo is for inspiration ONLY - be creative, use your imagination and show us what this photo inspired you to create.

Need some inspiration?

We hope you will hop through the line-up and see all the gorgeous projects the DT’s have created.
You should be coming from Jovan. If you started with me - you might want to head back to the TAWS blog to start at the beginning.

Your next stop is OmaGloria.

At the TAWS blog and the 3GJ challenge blog, you will find out more about their individual challenges and have the opportunity to link up to not just one challenge but both challenges for the chance to win some awesome prizes!

1. Just hop though our mini hop and leave comments
2. Enter BOTH challenges (if you don't own any TAWS there are freebies here)

Prizes are TAWS stamp sets and a Bundle of 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon.

Thanks for hopping with TAWS and 3GJ.

We look forward to seeing all your projects!
