Just Add Ink #440..."Blog Hop"


Hello everyone!!   Welcome to the first "Just Add Ink" challenge for 2019.   

We hope you have enjoyed your Christmas and New Year celebrations and are ready to play along with our 2019 Challenges.

It has become tradition  here at Just Add Ink, to start the New Year with a Blog Hop.   With a new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-brations in full swing at the moment, it’s the perfect time of year to "Just Add Something New!"

Adding "Something New" to your projects may be in the form of a new product, stamps, a technique or even something from your craft stash that you have not used before.   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 and leave them some comments as you go.

You can begin the blog hop here by clicking on Jackie’s name, or at any of the other design team members blog posts.   Then, just follow the hop by clicking on the next button that you will find at the bottom of all the design team posts.

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