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

 

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.

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.

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

Just Add Ink Challenge # 377 – Colour Challenge

Here’s a Colour Combo for you from Just Add Ink.  Challenge # 377.

Image may contain: text

 

Great colours – kinda beachy I thought? As you probably know, I love blue and blue features in my cards quite often – so I was quite keen on this colour combo.

Here is my project…..


I made a card wallet with lovely large colourful daisies on the outside.  Think this will work well for a Teachers gift.  I white embossed the flowers and used some Clear faceted gems in the centre of each flower to add a bit of bling.

Inside are some matching cards and envelopes (which I have not photographed yet).  I think this will make a nice little gift.

To check out heaps of other projects using these colours, go to Just Add Ink as see what the Design Team have been up too.  And then join in with this challenge too!

Just Add Ink # 315 Sketch Challenge

We have a Sketch Challenge this week at Just Add Ink.  The sketch was put together by Tina.   Here it is….

Often, when  I am creating things for Just Add Ink Challenges, I am also making them for other things too…….friends birthdays, challenges that I am doing with my sister or as projects for card classes.  So this week I was thinking….how can I incorporate this Challenge and something else at the same time…….

Then last weekend I went out for a night of crafting with friends, where we all made a few boxes…..and this really inspired me to come up with this project…….which will also be used for a class project.

I used the sketch on the top of the box.

An inside……it’s a Secret box!

Just Add Ink Challenge # 293 – Gift Card

Well – it’ s the end of the year – and this is the last Just Add Ink Challenge for 2015.

All the end of year activities have been keeping me very busy over the last few weeks. Dancing Concerts, School Concerts, Class parties and reward excursions, Work parties and lunches plus catch ups with friends.    And Christmas is very very close too………..are you counting down the sleeps?

Kim has suggested this challenge – Just Add….A Gift Card Holder.

For my project I put together some small Gifts for Sarah’s Teachers and added Gift Cards to them also.

Due to the holidays, this challenge will last for TWO WEEKS and there will be no judging by the Design Team.

Thank you for visiting my Blog this year, I hope you all have a great Christmas and holiday break.

Remember to visit Just Add Ink to share your Gift Card project.

Oh and……..2 other things I wanted to share before the holidays…………………..

1 – Very very proud of Sarah for winning an award at School this year.  The most improved student.   So happy for her.  She works really hard and is always enthusiastic.

2 – I have a sore toe!   Just remember that Big Shot Magnetic Platforms are great for Holding Framelits and Edgelits in place while cutting…………..But not great for dropping on toes.   Ouch!

JAI # 263 – Just Add Weddings!

Hello….it’s been a while huh?

I don’t even know when I posted something last.  But I am back now.

So time for a new Just Add Ink Challenge.  This week it is Just Add Weddings!  And it’s a great Challenge to get back into the swing of things.  I thought – I did not have many Wedding things in my craft area…..but now I think I do.  I made a card using some Stamps I have had for a long long time.  They are called Jessica and Jack.  They are quite versatile because you can dress them and accessorize them to fit any occasion.  Here is my Wedding card with Jack and Jessica…..

Over the last few weeks I have also been working on making a Topiary Tree – which I also think fits this challenge quite well.  It took a long time to make all those flowers but I was happy with the overall effect.

I must say…..initially I was Challenged by these colours………..well – isn’t that what it’s all about?
But once I got underway, you just couldn’t stop me!

I made a little gift box with 4 little cards inside.   This project was inspired by my friend Kim – who had made something similar for me a little while ago.

DSC00098 DSC00099 DSC00100 DSC00110 DSC00102Then each of the cards were inspired by other stampers – Narelle Farrugia, Rita Wright, Lisa Martz and others although I do not remember now where the ideas originated from.

So share your Colour Challenge creations with us at Just Add Ink.
