Just Add Ink # 294 Blog Hop – Something New


It’s that time of year again…….the New Year!  And that means Just Add Ink Blog Hop time……we always like to start the New Year with a Blog Hop – it really kicks off the Year with a good deal of fun!  And this year is gonna be great.

For this year’s Blog Hop Rochelle has suggested we all “Just Add Something New”.

I know that won’t be hard for users of Stampin Up! products because the new Occasions catalogue and Sale-a-bration promotions have started!   If you don’t have anything new from SU! please join us in this Challenge using whatever new product you have and be sure to let us know what it is.

To make the blog hop extra special the design team have donated new SU! SAB items as prizes to the winner and two honorable mentions participants. Please note, to be eligible for the prize, you must

  • create a “NEW” project using “SOMETHING NEW TO YOU”

Any entrants that link to additional challenges will be ineligible. (The prizes are open to both international and AUS/NZ participants).

We look forward to kicking the year off with a celebration of new crafty goodness and inspiration and hope you will join the challenge with us.

You can begin the blog hop here on my blog or at any of the other design team members blog posts. Just follow the hop by clicking on the next or previous buttons at the bottom of all the design team posts.

  1. Hi Chantell, I love S’U!’s ‘Have a Cuppa’ dsp, (and the MM & BB Baker’s Twine and the little tea-pot charms) especially as it has one of my favourite colour combos – Melon Mambo, Tempting Tourquoise and Blushing Bride. It’s such a jolly and bright card that would add happiness to anyone’s day.
