Just Add Ink #392....Blog Hop!



"HAPPY NEW YEAR"
Hello everyone!
We are back, refreshed and ready for another fabulous year of challenges and creating! We hope you all enjoyed your celebrations and are ready to join us and get the creative juices flowing for 2018.

As we always do, we have a fun blog hop to kick start our challenge year and for this one we want you to use something new.
This can be done in a variety of ways by adding a new product, technique or even something you've had for awhile but not yet used! Please share details of what your "NEW" is, that makes it much easier for the design team when commenting and voting.

Instead of adding all of the design teams projects to this post, we have added their blog links below so you can follow the hop, leave them some comment love and be inspired!

Just Add Ink #391..."Just Choose Two"


Hello and Welcome to the final Challenge for 2017!
This Just Choose Two Challenge has been suggested by Kim and will run for two weeks, closing on 3rd January 2018.  You may also want to note that it will be a non-voting challenge as the Just Add Ink Team will be taking a short break for Summer Holidays. 

There are 3 items to choose from, Twine - Trees - Tags but remember you must use two of the three options on your project.  These three items work nicely into a Christmas themed project although it does not have to be a Christmas project, as you will see from the inspirational projects the Design Team have created.

All of us at Just Add Ink, would like to wish you an enjoyable, safe and happy Christmas and New Year. Please join us again in 2018, when we start the year off with a blog hop on 19 January.

Here is what the Design Team have come up with this week to provide you with inspiration...
