At Just Add Ink we always like to start the year off with a blog hop to showcase the first challenge of the year.
This year Rochelle has suggested we all "Just Add Something New". I know that won't be hard for the Stampin Up! demonstrators out there, as the new Occasions catalogue and Sale-a-bration promotions have started! If you don't have anything new from SU! please join us using whatever new product you have and be sure to let us know what it is.
To make the blog hop extra special the Design Team have donated new SU! SAB items as prizes to the winner and two honorable mentions participants. Please note, to be eligible, you must create a "NEW" project using "SOMETHING NEW TO YOU" and leave a comment on all the Design Team blogs, be or become a JAI follower, and blog your project exclusively linked to Just Add Ink. Any entrants who link to additional challenges will be disqualified. (The prizes are open to both international and AUS/NZ participants).
We look forward to kicking the year off with a celebration of new crafty goodness and inspiration and hope you will join the challenge with us.

I have had a play with the delightful and versatile new Balloon Celebration stamp set. There's a matching Balloon Bouquet punch, which just adds to the appeal of the set - so much fun!
While I had my supplies out, I made a second card This card shows off some more fabulous new products from the Occasions Catalogue.
