JAI 431 sketch challenge - Snowfall Christmas card

It's a big week at colour me happy, as our darling girl started her final HSC exams yesterday, however I did sneak some time to make a card for this week's new Just Add Ink challenge, using this sketch suggested by Tina.

I went Christmassy for my card, using a brand new suite release coming for November only.

More poinsettia pop up window cards

Remember the poinsettia card I shared last week? It evolved from another card featuring the poinsettia line images in the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle. So today I'm sharing that original card and a third card that's a combination of both cards. Following so far? Just check out the cards & you'll get the idea.

JAI 427 - Just add K for kids birthday surprise

It's new Just Add Ink challenge time and this week we have to ...


I was able to combine the challenge with a project from last weekend's class, which serendipitously was cards for little Kids & babies. So of course my K is for Kids. This sweet little card with a surprise pop up inside is what I made.

JAI 425 inspiration challenge - petal gatefold

Hooray for Spring in Australia! This week's Just Add Ink challenge is to make a card inspired by this beautiful inspiration image. Oh my goodness, how gorgeous are those hydrangeas & that idyllic little garden scene.


It's much too early for hydrangeas in Australia but the image immediately made me think of the truly gorgeous Petal Promenade paper pack. This features photographic images of real flower clusters and arrangements. Here's what I made with it.

I'm always game to try a new colour combination and this week's challenge combination at Just Add Ink is certainly a new one for me.

I decided to try a graphic, masculine-ish look and this is what I came up with.
