Just Add Ink # 392 – Blog Hop – Just Add Something New!

January 18, 2018


Happy New Year everyone – 2018 is here!!

There is no better way to kick off the year, than with a Blog Hop.

The 2018 Just Add Ink Blog Hop theme is Just Add Something New.

Image may contain: text

So that means…. What’s new in your craft area?  It might be some paper, colours or pencils or something you haven’t used before.   This is going to be a fun challenge with endless possibilities.  We hope you will join the challenge with us.

When looking through my craft area I found quite a few things I had not used before and a couple of new things too.   My Just Add Something New items come from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.   I’ve used the Sunshine and Rainbows Stamp Set and Rainbow Builder Framelits Dies.

I used them to put together an Easel card.

I wanted the Rainbow to stick up above the clouds, as if it’s in the air.  This was a fun card to make.

The Blog Hop is set up in a loop so it doesn’t matter where you start.  All you need to do is to follow along is click the “Next” Button at the end of each persons post and you will be taken to the next stop.  Remember the Blog Hop also incorporates the Just Add Ink Challenge for this week.  You can join in this weeks challenge by making a project that includes something New from your Craft area.

So – here we go, now it’s time for you to move onto the next Just Add Ink Design Team Member.  Just click on the button below and you will move onto the lovely Narelle’s Blog.No automatic alt text available.

Enjoy the Blog Hop, gather inspiration and then join us for this Challenge at Just Add Ink.
