Just Add a Die Cut Word – JAI #500

Finally time on my hands to craft!! None of the usual weekend sport (for me or the kids) and I have finished cleaning the house. Cleaning the craft room is creating with my craft supplies… it is the one room in the house that I can’t throw anything away.

I think it has been almost 5 years since I last entered a card challenge! I was so glad to see that the girls at Just Add Ink are still going strong with the weekly challenges. This is my entry for ‘Just Add a Die Cut Word’. Inspired by the challenge and while working from home listening to my daughter practice on the guitar.

I hope to be back again soon.

Yay – I have actually taken a photo of a card!!  Sorry – it’s a poor quality photo taken on my phone.. then I tried to do some editing before posting but I don’t think that helped.

I made this card last week for the Just Add Ink Challenge – Just Add Butterflies but it has sat on my desk since then waiting for me to take a photo… it needs to go in the post tomorrow so thought I better share before sending it off.

Happy Crafting!

Cheers Deb

Just Add Sketch


Wow – it’s been such a long time since I last posted a photo of a project!!  Let’s hope I can start to get back into blogging a bit more regularly..  Today’s project is based on this week’s Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge:

JAI 264

I was inspired to craft over the weekend after a coffee catch up with two of the lovely Just Add Ink girls – Patrice & Kim!  We had a lovely afternoon chatting about stamping and the new Stampin’ Up! 2015/16 Catalogue.  I was really keen to craft when I got home and I made this card for a friend who is turning 40 this week.  I always find sketch challenges are a great starting point for a card layout and the card came together quickly.  I love the soon to retire Confetti Celebration DSP… sad is it going but excited about new 2015/16 DSP’s about be to be released by Stampin’ Up!

Email me if you need any details about the card.  Also, make sure you check out the Just Add Ink Design Team inspiration for this week’s challenge.

Cheers Deb
