Just Add Ink #574...Just Choose Two


Hello everyone! Welcome to our brand new challenge here at Just Add Ink.

Before we get to the challenge info, we have another lovely new design team member Tristan Dawes Joining the JAI team and we would like to say a huge welcome to the Just Add Ink family! Tristan is sharing a little about herself below, so have a read and pop over to her blog to check out all of her lovely creations! 


Hi I'm Tristan and I've been paper crafting in some form for over 15 years and my blog Tinstar Designs is an anagram of my name. By day I'm a Learning Partner and am mum to a 14yr old girl doing Year 9 in high school. When COVID lockdown allows, I'm also a tragic netball mum. I'm on design teams for the Watercooler Wednesday, Fusion and Get Creative challenges and can't wait to join the other talented JAI designers in providing inspiration for our challenges.

Did you know we also have an Instagram account? You can find us Here. Make sure you tag your projects using the #justaddinkchallenge or #jai574.

Just Add Ink #573...Just Add a Sketch

Hello there,
it's Friday and that means it's time for a new challenge from the Just Add Ink team. But before we get to that, we have more news for you this week, we have another new member making their debut on the design team, please welcome Kerry Bunting. I'll let her introduce herself to you all.


Hi, I’m Kerry Bunting. I began my crafting journey when my daughters were young and I discovered scrapbooking, then from there progressed to stamping and card making. I enjoy sharing this passion and have loved teaching card classes and running my blog for the past decade or so. My style for most of that time would probably be called clean and layered, but in the past couple of years I’ve been experimenting more and more with clean and simple, shabby chic and mixed media. In fact, I don’t think it would be an exaggeration to say my craft room is being taken over by all things Tim Holtz and it’s now bordering on obsessive!


Now onto this weeks challenge! This week Jan has asked us to Just Add a Sketch, here it is.

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