This week the Just Add Ink challenge is to be inspired by one of our own Design Team members……Kathy Tanner. Kathy uses some great shapes in her work and is very talented at using lots of stamping images to put together collage cards. This is our chance to show you how Kathy inspires the Design Team at JAI with her work.
I really love the Ribbon Flowers that Kathy makes and the shapes that she uses in her card layouts. So instead of choosing one of Kathy’s projects to case I looked at several and put together my card:
So join in the fun with us and create something inspired by Kathy Tanner. Follow the link to Just Add Ink to see what the rest of the Design Team have come up with and to show us what you have put together.
Well with last week being Challenge # 100 – we are now into the 3 digit Challenges. Next up – # 101 is a Sketch Challenge. Here is the Sketch:
I decided to make a Calendar this week. Here it is.
The Stamp Set is called Fabulous Florets and is in the current Summer Mini Catalogue. The DSP is Paisley Petals which is really lovely. I realise now – that I did not take any pic’s of the inside Calendar pages – so I must do that.
So to join in and view the other Just Add Ink 101 projects go to Just Add Ink.
Welcome to The Just Add Ink – Just Add Crowns Blog Hop.
Since 1917, the Sovereign has sent congratulatory messages to people celebrating notable birthdays and anniversaries.
Cards are sent to those celebrating their 100th and 105th birthday and every year thereafter, and to those celebrating their diamond wedding (60th), 65th, 70th wedding anniversaries and every year thereafter.
For many people, receiving a congratulatory card from The Queen to mark a significant birthday or wedding anniversary is a very special part of their celebrations. Delivery of congratulatory messages is arranged by the Anniversaries Office at Buckingham Palace.
The Queen’s congratulatory messages consist of a card containing a personalised message. The card comes in a special envelope, which is delivered through the normal postal channels.
At Just Add Ink this week, we are Celebrating the milestone of 100 Challenges. I don’t think we will be getting a Card from the Queen – however instead we have a Just Add Crowns Blog Hop for you.
For this Challenge I decided to put together a Scrapbooking Page. My inspiration actually came from Sarah’s Fifth Birthday Cake. It was all Pink with a Tiara on the top. The Tiara had flashy lights and fluffy feathers round it.
I also used one of Sarah’s Head Bands for inspiration. The band had broken and I’d asked Sarah if I could use it – I thought I could preserve it for her……. but I was not allowed!! So I had to make a paper copy of it. Funny though – after I had finished, I showed Sarah and she said…..”Ohhh I said you could use it”!!

Hey – Happy New Year Everyone – and Best Wishes for 2012!
Here’s something NEW for the NEW Year……..at Just Add Ink we will be having monthly scrapbooking Challenges on the first Sunday of each month and it starts today 1st January. So the idea is to scrap a LO (Layout=scrapbook page) in any size but it must be a LO to go into an album .ie not an OTP/mini album.
Since this Month is our very first Scrapbooking Challenge and its the first day of the New Year the Theme is “Firsts or One”. So please make sure you have First or One in your title.
Here is the one I did………..
I decided to Scrap some photo’s from Sarah’s First Birthday – I have had these photo’s ready for a while so it was the perfect challenge. I realise now that I have not added any journalling to the page…..so might have to add some. This was also my first go at making a kids cake and I was really wrapped with the result. I even made the flowers with marshmallows and jelly crystals.
The girls at Just Add Ink have put together some fabulous pages to inspire you so click here to check them out. They have also shared some of their 1st ever pages too…..so I decided to add mine here for you to see.This is one of my fav pic’s of Sarah and I (even though you can’t really see me) – it was taken in the first 24 hours of Sarah’s life – she was so tiny and just snuggled in there.
So here’s to a creative and inspiring 2012 and we all hope you enjoy our brand new Scrapbooking Challenges.
