Happy New Year!

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas & the opportunity to enjoy a break. Welcome to a fabulous 2021 of fun challenges sharing what we love to do. As is our tradition at Just Add Ink we are kicking the year off with a Blog Hop.

Hello there,
well Christmas is almost upon us, but before we reach the end of the year we have one more challenge from the team here at Just Add Ink. To round the year off Nikki has asked us all to Just Add Inspiration.

Use the colours, patterns, textures, objects, theme of the inspiration image as the main element of your project. We will be keeping this challenge open for TWO WEEKS till December 30th. 


There won't be any voting by the design team as we'll all be enjoying the festivities with our family and friends, however, we hope that you will enjoy sharing your projects here to inspire each other.

We'd like to thank you all for joining us this year, and wish you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas. 

We'll see you back here for our annual Blog Hop on 15 January 2021!
