CAS Hearts!

Wow what a week it's been here in Brisbane with all the wild weather!  Luckily I've not been affected but unfortunately there are a few other people I know who have been.
My heart goes out to all those who have been affected.

Since I was cramped up in the house all weekend I was able to find time to play along with 2 challenges!!!

My card today uses the sketch from Less is More and the Code word 'Heart' from Addicted to CAS.

Normally I don't do CAS and was worried about trying out these challenges BUT this card came together so quickly that I think I might have to make an effort to try more CAS cards!!!

Code Word:

I hope you are all having a lovely week.
Be safe

Just Add Ink - Big Shot Blog Hop!

Hi All – you should have landed here after the jump from Kim’s blog.  What a fantastic project Kim!!

How exciting is the Just Add Ink BIG SHOT Blog Hop!!!
You can hop around to the JAI Design Team member’s blogs to pick up oodles of inspiring ideas that are all created with the Big Shot!

The project I have for you today doesn't involve card stock but material instead and we’re not going to use it on a card but on a Tshirt!

I picked up a few different materials from my local hobby shop but you can also get coordinating materials from the Stampin’ UP! catalogue too.

I then ran the material through my Big Shot using the Fun Flowers die using the medium sized flower. 
I’m making 3 flowers with 3 layers so I need 9 cuts.

I then used 3 different layers and hand sewed a little pucker at the back and sewed on a little bling to the front.

After that step was complete for all 3 flowers I put a few stitches in to attach it to the Tshirt.

 VoilĂ !
What a pretty way to dress up a plain shirt.

I hope this has inspired you to do a little something different with your Big Shot and think outside the square.

Now pop on over to Narelle's blog and check out her amazing creation – I know you’ll just love it!
If you haven’t come from the beginning you can go always go back to the start at the Just Add Ink blog. However we're running in a loop so if you keep hopping you'll make your way around.

Once you've been inspired don't forget to show us your Big Shot creation and link up at the JAI blog!!!

Just Add Ink 2012 in review

Hi lovely bloggy readers!!!

I hope you all had a lovely festive break filled with lots of love and laughter.

Over at Just Add Ink the Design Team members are doing a quick review of their favourite projects from 2012.

Here's my project that I liked the best for 2012 - 

I picked this one because not only do I think it looks fab but it was fairly quick and easy to make! But the most important reason I picked it was because it was made with love for my Mum for Mother's day.

Hope on over to Just Add Ink to see the other fantastic inspiration ideas from the other Design Team members.

I'll be back next week with a fun "BIG SHOT BLOG HOP"

Until then
