Julie's inspiration challenge

I have seen inspiration challenges on other sites and thought it might be fun for all of us here at The Scrappy Tree to give it a try.

Google defines inspiration as an “arousal of the mind to special unusual activity or creativity.” Here at The Scrappy Tree, we hope that you see many projects as inspirational and that they can bring you joy in creating. Today marks our first Inspiration Challenge post. If all goes well and you all like it, we will have this feature every 2nd Monday of the month.

For January’s inspiration challenge, I stumbled across this super cute apron from Anthropologie.

They have some GORGEOUS aprons, all too beautiful in my opinion to mess up, but this one in particular inspired me to make this card.

I loved the criss cross lines on the apron, as well as the colors and adorable cupcakes! When I saw this apron, I just knew I could finally ink up the cupcake stamp that I have had for at least a year and never used!

So, the challenge is this…

  1. Look at the inspiration pic of the apron, get inspired!
  2. Take that inspiration wherever it leads you…scrapbook page, card, atc, canvas, altered object, anything goes!!
  3. Upload your creation to our Ning network!

DEADLINE IS THIS FRIDAY JANUARY 15TH. Please check back at the Ning site to see what others have created! This challenge is just for fun, so have fun and get scrappy!
