Just Add Ink #17 - A Blog Hop!

Hi Inkers!

They say variety is the spice of life, so we have something a little different for you this week.

We're going on a Blog Hop! We hope you'll play along, there are only 10 stops (this is #1) and at each stop one of the Design Team will be showing you a technique they love, and a gorgeous tutorial on how they do it. We hope we will give you a tonne of inspiration for this weeks challenge which is...

Just Add ... A Technique From The Blog Hop!
(projects must be new)

  • Please mention what technique from the Blog Hop you are using in your scrap page, card or 3D project, and what you like about that technique.
  • You're welcome to use any brand of products you like.
  • Please use the keyword JAI17 when uploading to public galleries.
  • Please mention our challenge and provide a link with your post.
  • Provide a DIRECT LINK to the post on your blog where you've displayed your creation using Mr. Linky. Incorrect links will be deleted.
  • Your creation must be exclusive to our challenge. Entries with 3 or more alternative challenges listed (ours included) in the post will be deleted at the discretion of the JAI hosts.
  • Projects must be new.

Don't have a blog or online gallery?
Email a picture of your creation to and
we'll publish it and add it to Mr Linky on your behalf, for others to see.

This is the part where we usually show off what the amazing Design Team girls have been up to - but instead you need to click on the button below to get the next stop on the blog hop!

Don't forget to link your creation back here when you're finished, we can't wait to see what you've been inspired by!
Here are the links too, just in case you lose your way.
