Hi Everyone!!

Julie here, welcome to the 3GJ/TAWS Cross Promotion Double Challenge Blog Hop!

3 Girl JAM

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

Here is a bit about TAWS for those of you not familiar~

Here is a bit about 3 Girl JAM for those who are unfamiliar ~
3 Girl JAM is owned and operated by me, Julie and my 2 daughters Avery and Mackenzie- JAM (get it!?!).   You can check out my shop here~ 

Every 2 weeks TAWS have a new challenge based on a fun photo called "Be Inspired" and 3GJ has our own challenge using 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon
So for this challenge- the DT's are using the inspiration photo, The Alley Way Stamps and Crinkle Ribbon

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.

Onto the hop...
You should be coming from TAWS

Here is my project!

 I love the colors and patterns in the inspiration photo and wanted to work off of them with this Freebie from TAWS.

I also couldn't resist making another project using the bright colors because they went to well with the new 3GJ Super Hero Flair with images by Lisa Norris.  

I used a cotton muslin bag as a holder for my card stamped with a sentiment and a border from the Jibber Jabber set by TAWS.

Make sure to check out the 2 new sets of Flair Buttons available in the 3GJ Store at

Your next stop is Melissa
