Just Add Ink #326...Project Life!



JAI #326-Project Life

Welcome to this weeks Just Add Ink challenge post.  Rochelle has challenged us to add Project Life to our projects.
Over the past few years l have been collecting random bits of PL products and couldn't resist adding the "Hello Lovely" PL card collection in the main SU catalogue.
Now l have to fess up to not actually ever creating a PL layout/pocket thingy as l keep forgetting to purchase the pages..:0)
I did have every intention of getting them prior to this challenge, but as you can see it didn't happen. So l was left to creating a card using one from the kit...Now as much as love this PL card, it's not my absolute fave, but l didn't want to waste one on a card in case l needed it for that far off time when l do eventually buy the pages..lol

Anyway...here it is and l do think it's rather pretty and will be perfect for an earthy loving girl celebrating a b'day soon.
Not sure if you can see it all that well, but l added some copper accents using the fine tip glue and the yummy copper embossing powder (l did heat it) and the lovely copper twine...It is really pretty IRL.

Just Add Ink #325...Sketch!






Hey blog friends, it's time for a new Just Add Ink  challenge. This week Tina has provided a lovely simple sketch for us to play with.
I've used the little scallop thinlit from the "Popcorn Box" to create the negative scalloped space and teamed it with the fun "Pop of Paradise" suite and the colours from those.
The circle sentiment is from the (retired) hostess set "A whole lot of lovely" and coloured with markers.





The design team have some great projects to share, so don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and take a peek.

Just Add Ink #323.."Just Add F"



Happy Friday friends! It's time to share another Just Add Ink challenge. Tina has challenged us to use "F" on our projects this week. Simple and fun! 
I went with lots of "Flirty Flamingo" and some dainty "flowers" combining them with the Birthday Builder set from SU.
I've been revisiting this set a bit lately, it's such a fun and simple way to create a birthday cake/card.

The design team have created some great inspiration full of "F" elements, be sure to stop by the challenge blog and check them out!

Just Add Ink #322...Colour!





The lovely and talented Rochelle has set our Just Add Ink challenge for this week. She has given us a lovely warm combination to create with and as much as my pics are a bit blah, due to incredibly dull weather, l really like it!
Chocolate chip is a colour l rarely reach for these days, so it was nice to show it some love and have another play with "Swirly Birds".

The design team have used various combinations on their projects with stunning results! Make sure you pop over to the challenge blog and have a peek and join us if you can.

Just Add Ink #321...Paper Piecing!


Hey there! We have a fun new challenge happening over at Just Add Ink. This week Patrice would like us to use "Paper Piecing" on our projects.
I haven't done this in ages. I've gone very simple and used dsp strips to create the cake layers from "Build a Birthday" and have created a masculine-ish birthday card. Although it would work perfectly fine for both genders.

The rest of the design team have created some fabulous projects using this technique, so don't forget to stop by and check them out and play along if you can.

Now l'm off to sit on the heater and thaw out. It's on bake mode so it shouldn't take long..:0) Roll on summer!
