INKspired Artists Blog Hop TWENTY


How Exciting!

Welcome to our 20th blog hop!

Hi! I'm guessing you've just hopped in from the amazing Kabrina - I am always in awe of her creations, they're always brilliant!

If I'm wrong and you haven't hopped in from Kabrina and you're starting with me - please don't forget to hop around to everyone and while you're at it, I'd love if you could leave us all a comment - there's a prize (woohoo!) for one random commenter but only if you leave comment on everyone's blog posts. So, go - get commenting or your chance to win...

When this Catalogue first came out I was drawn to the new Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper, and I think that it was because as a Scrapbooker I always found it hard to find nice school papers that weren't too babyish or that weren't ghastly in colour.

These papers are absolutely GORGEOUS!!! I've pulled out lots of my daughter’s school photo's ready to Scrapbook - but that's a whole other blog post.

In today's post, we're checking out what the INKspired Artists have all created using the same sketch...here's our sketch:


And, here's my take:


My card was completely CASEd from Pinterest – when I went looking for ideas using this paper I couldn’t help myself – I loooved it! Any who wouldn’t? I’ve given it “The Lisa Touch” which just means I’ve grunged it up a bit and given it a bit more ribbon and changed out the sentiment – this one will go to my beautiful boy for changing schools without a hitch – little legend!

Thank you for hopping in, don’t forget to keep going and leave some love on each team members post to go into the draw to win that awesome stamp set.

Next on your INKspired Artists adventure is my good friend Lissa Carter and I cannot wait to see what she’s going to blow us away with.


See you in two weeks for our 21st!

Such a great creation of a male card. I find they are more of a challenge to make, but what you have done with your card I think you have done well.
