Welcome to the first Inspired By Challenge! So glad you are here!
I have been contemplating this for awhile now and I figured I may as well get it under way. I spend a bit of time, well maybe a lot of time on Pinterest ;) I love Pinterest. There are so many great ideas for every aspect of life. I decided that it was time to make good use of that pinning time and start my own challenge blog. These challenges will be based on inspiration photos and I would love to see your take on them. This will be a pretty casual challenge; sometimes prizes ( I want to share some of the many goodies I have been fortunate to have received), sometimes guests. I will just see where it takes me, and who comes along before I get anything set in stone. I would love for you to play along.
So here is my first challenge for you. I would love to see where this inspiration photo takes you. You may be inspired by the colors, the feel (a bit of shabby), the images, whatever inspires you. You can make any type of project; cards, tags, scrapbook pages or altered art it is up to you. If you play along please include this inspiration photo in your post with a link back to this challenge. Thank you.
Here is my project, I was inspired by the soothing colors and the shabbiness of it. These fabulous papers are from Jessica Sprague. I used papers from the Winter Wonderland and the 12 Days of Christmas paper collections. These are such gorgeous sets!!! The ribbon, Champagne V Striped Twill, and Jute twine are from May Arts and are available at The Ribbon Carousel. Finally, the tree and sentiment are dies from Papertrey Ink.
Oh and since this is the inaugural challenge I do have a fabulous prize for the winner! The winner will receive the Papertrey Ink 2011 Limited Edition stamp set! Good luck to you! You have until next Wednesday, December 7 at 11:59 PST to get your entry in. I will then post a winner on the weekend.
Don't forget that Jessica Sprague is having their holiday sale
